New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter will have his famed No. 2 jersey retired by the storied organization before the team's game against the Houston Astros on May 14, 2017.
The Yankees made the announcement official Tuesday morning:
New York selected Jeter with the sixth overall pick in the 1992 draft and, following a rise through the minors, he proceeded to play his entire 20-year professional career in Yankee pinstripes.
The New Jersey native earned 14 All-Star Game selections and helped the team capture five World Series titles during a career that will ...
A scant three weeks before Christmas, the New York Yankees signed Matt Holliday for one year and $13 million, per Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball.
I will spare you the painfully obvious holiday/Holliday puns.
It's a solid move for the Yanks, who are in the midst of a youth movement but also seeking to win now.
New York whiffed on outfielder/designated hitter Carlos Beltran when he signed with the Houston Astros for one year and $16 million on Saturday.
The Yankees dealt Beltran to the Texas Rangers at the 2016 trade deadline, but according to Heyman, ...
Matt Holliday struggled to find his previous All-Star form throughout an injury-marred 2016 season, but the New York Yankees reportedly took a chance on him Sunday.
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Bronx Bombers signed the slugger to a one-year deal worth $13 million. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports confirmed the signing.
Heyman, citing Sweeny Murti of CBS New York, said Holliday will serve as the designated hitter for the Yankees.
This comes after the St. Louis Cardinals declined the remaining option year on his previous contract on the heels of a ...
The New York Yankees need a starting pitcher. In past winters, that would have led to their going after only the best options, and damn the cost!
But since they need to be smart this winter, let's help point them toward Rich Hill.
In truth, it can be hard to tell which direction the Yankees are leaning in. The offseason rumor mill has featured whispers about their continuing the sell-off they kicked into high gear over the summer. Other times, it's featured whispers about their buying up the hot-stove season's biggest names.
To say New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez had a good rookie year is an understatement of Ruthian proportions.
And yes, we just invoked the Bambino.
Sanchez is 694 home runs shy of Babe Ruth on the all-time list. But after cracking 20 homers and posting a .299/.376/.657 slash line in 53 games, he's at the forefront of an enviable youth movement in the Bronx.
He's also a candidate for American League Rookie of the Year honors, despite the fact that he wasn't called up for good until Aug. 3.
While he didn't log ...
New York Yankees catcher and designated hitter Brian McCann has continued to be the subject of trade rumors this offseason.

Yankees Deny That Trade for McCann is "Imminent"
Thursday, Nov. 10
Yankees general manager and senior vice president Brian Cashman indicated Thursday that "A McCann trade does not appear imminent," according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network. On Friday, Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan noted the Yankees are willing to pay half of McCann's $34 million salary, but they want multiple young players in return.
McCann, 32, has been the subject of trade rumors this week, with Ken ...
Nolan Arenado caught scouts' eyes in the Arizona Fall League when he was 20 years old. So did Derek Jeter, Corey Seager and Francisco Lindor.
Gleyber Torres is 19.
"He's playing against older guys," Carl Moesche of the Major League Scouting Bureau said in an interview on Saturday on MLB Network. "And he's not intimidated."
Torres is the youngest player in baseball's well-respected fall development league. As of Monday, his 1.026 OPS ranked third-highest in the league. In 12 games, he had more than twice as many walks (11) as strikeouts (five), with ...
The offseason has arrived. For the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians, that means taking a moment to reflect on an epic seven-game World Series. For the Cubs in particular, it means getting used to the moniker "world champion" for the first time in 108 years.
For 28 other teams, it's time to get to work.
Among those 28 teams, no franchise is more fascinating than the New York Yankees.
Consider: The Yankees began the 2016 season with a veteran roster. They were creaky, but they had a shot to contend in the noisy, ...
New York Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia is expected to recover in time for spring training after undergoing surgery on his right knee Tuesday.
Continue for updates.
Yankees Call Procedure 'a Routine Cleanup'
Tuesday, Oct. 11
The Associated Press reported Yankees head team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad handled the surgery after Sabathia pitched the entire 2016 season with a knee brace on the bothersome joint.
Sabathia is no longer the ace he was during his prime seasons with the Cleveland Indians and early in his Yankees career. He can still serve as a valuable piece of ...
New York Yankees rookie catcher Gary Sanchez hit his 20th home run of the season (and his career) in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Boston Red Sox, tying Wally Berger's record for fastest player to reach 20 career long balls, needing only 50 major league appearances to accomplish the feat, per ESPN Stats & Info.
The 23-year-old Dominican phenom did the deed in the first inning, launching a two-run shot to left field off Boston Red Sox starting pitcher David Price.
While no longer a realistic part of the wild-card chase, the ...
