A smart string of September call-ups can often be the difference between a playoff berth and a phone call to the local golf course.
When MLB rosters expand to 40 on September 1, expect some of the game's top youngsters to get the call to the majors. The New York Yankees will certainly make some additions, but who will be brought up to help the team's run at the American League Wild Card?
There are five obvious candidates. While the team could certainly bring up more (the max they can call up ...
The New York Yankees had a big makeover this past offseason, bringing in a lot of new faces.
As the end of the 2014 season nears, Yankees fans should prepare for another offseason of turnover.
The following is a list of the top players most likely not to return to the Yankees next season.
One obvious omission from the list is Derek Jeter as we have been witnessing his farewell tour this season and I'm pretty sure it's clear that his decision to retire is final.
Though all of these players could technically return, based ...
Twelve up, 12 down.
Four innings into Michael Pineda's start on Wednesday night in Oriole Park at Camden Yards, it was clear the New York Yankees had found yet another vaccine in the area where they've needed it the least in their quest for October baseball.
The 6'7”, 265-pounder was writing poetry for the story of his comeback. He had been suspended for 10 games after his start April 23, in which he was ejected after just 1.2 innings at Fenway Park with an obvious, embarrassing smear of pine tar across the back-right ...
The New York Yankees are 61-57 through 118 games, and with three-quarters of the season behind us, it's time for the Bombers to brace themselves for what is sure to be a chaotic stretch run.
Memories of the early days in Derek Jeter's career will certainly make for some nostalgia-filled nights at Yankee Stadium, but the task at hand is to make the playoffs in the Captain's final season.
Given the rash of injuries this team has suffered both offensively and in the pitching staff, it's remarkable to see that they're floating ...
Where would the Yankees be right now if not for Brandon McCarthy?
With CC Sabathia and Ivan Nova out for the season with injuries, and Masahiro Tanaka on the disabled list attempting to stave off Tommy John surgery, the Yankees decided to acquire McCarthy from the Arizona Diamondbacks on July 6 in exchange for left-hander Vidal Nuno.
Since then, McCarthy, 31, has provided much-needed stability to a depleted Yankees rotation, going 4-1 with a 2.21 ERA and 36-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 36.2 innings over six starts. Meanwhile, his performance has allowed the ...
With Week 19 upon us, it is time to once again check in on the stocks of the New York Yankees' top 10 prospects.
Last week's list looked like this:
Gary Sanchez, C: Even
Luis Severino, RHP: Up
Rob Refsnyder, 2B/OF: Up
Eric Jagielo, 3B: Even
Tyler Austin, 1B/3B/OF: Up
Aaron Judge, OF: Even
Ian Clarkin, LHP: Even
Jose Pirela, 2B/SS/OF: Up
Greg Bird, 1B: Even
Jacob Lindgren, LHP: Up
With another week of the season in the books, these players will once again be evaluated on their recent performances as well as their overall seasons. So whose stock has risen, fallen ...
New York Yankees star Derek Jeter earned yet another accolade Saturday as he moved into sixth place on MLB's all-time hits list with 3,431.
According to the Yanks' official Twitter account, the captain broke a tie with legendary Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop and Hall of Famer Honus Wagner:
As seen in this video courtesy of MLB.com, the landmark hit came on an infield single off Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber in the sixth inning:
The 40-year-old Jeter will retire at the end of the season, but there is still time left for him to ...

The New York Yankees have had a long, strange trip through the 2014 season.
Think back to the All-Star break: Whichever metaphor you prefer—underwater, sinking, stuck in the mud—they had become a representation of the overspending, injured, mediocre ballclub in the 21st century. Having lost 10 of their final 16 heading into the break, they were eyeing baseball's second half at 47-47 with just one of their five Opening Day starters remaining healthy—their 39-year-old, too. Pitching had never been the problem, either.
The front office appeared caught between haplessly believing in this 2014 ...
The Detroit Tigers had an opportunity to break through in the second inning, but the New York Yankees scored first and took a 2-1 lead they would preserve through the final pitch.
David Robertson sealed off an impressive outing by Brandon McCarthy, who pitched out of a bases-loaded jam in the second inning and allowed just one run in six innings.
The highlight of the game came in the bottom of the third, when Ezequiel Carrera robbed Jacoby Ellsbury of a few RBIs with a diving catch on the warning track. That ...
