Thursday's action-packed, non-waiver trade deadline saw the New York Yankees add Stephen Drew and Martin Prado.
Surprisingly, the archrival Boston Red Sox dealt Drew to the Yankees, as first reported by ESPNBoston.com’s Gordon Edes.
The Yankees then got Martin Prado from the Arizona Diamondbacks for prospect Peter O'Brien, a story that was broken by the YES Network's Jack Curry.
While neither of these deals fall under the blockbuster department, they do potentially upgrade the roster.
Drew, a shortstop, will be the everyday second baseman from here on out. His .176 average is far from impressive, ...
The 55-52 New York Yankees just got some major help to close their 5.5-game gap with the Baltimore Orioles in the AL East. Just before Thursday's trade deadline, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports announced the team's acquisition of Martin Prado from the Arizona Diamondbacks:
Prado is predominantly a third baseman, but he's also accustomed to spending time at second base, shortstop, first base and in the outfield, making him the ultimate utility player.
So far this season, Prado is batting .270 with a .317 on-base percentage and .370 slugging percentage. He's accumulated ...
The 2014 MLB trade deadline has arrived, and the New York Yankees have deemed themselves to be buyers in the market.
Their position in the standings, five-and-a-half games out of first place in the AL East and three games out of the second wild-card spot, coincides with that premise despite others believing the opposite.
Wallace Matthews of ESPN.com is asking the bold question of whether or not the Yankees should actually be sellers.
The truth of the matter is, I am not sure how far back the Yankees would have to be to ...
What tricks does New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman have up his sleeves in the next few hours?
The Yanks are in an interesting position. At the time of writing, they're 5.5 games out in the American League East and 3.0 back in the wild-card race. Doing something before the 4 p.m. ET trade deadline would be great and all, but New York doesn't have much to offer in terms of assets.
How much can it get done?
Instead of dictating the market, the Yankees will more likely let the market play ...
It's not every day that you get to meet an American icon. Former President George W. Bush must have been honored when he got to rub shoulders with Derek Jeter.
Throughout the season, the retiring New York Yankees shortstop has received the Mariano Rivera treatment, as he's been showered with gifts at every road ballpark. What he hasn't done is shake hands with the 43rd president of the United States.
Before the Yankees took on the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night, Jeter was presented with a plaque by "Dubya" himself that commemorated ...
The New York Yankees are currently looking up at the Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League East race, but there probably aren’t a lot of squads feeling sorry for the Bronx Bombers.
Still, New York is a piece or two away from a run at the playoffs, and the trade deadline is the ideal time to make those moves. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the latest rumors surrounding the Yankees.
Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com filled fans in on the latest regarding Jon ...

Note: While other sources were ...
Derek Jeter continues to break career records, and at this age, it’s no surprise. Earlier in the season. he eclipsed Lou Gehrig’s doubles record of 534, and most recently he passed Carl Yastrzemski for seventh on the all-time hits list. The hit was a quintessential Jeter base hit through the right side gap on a well executed hit-and-run. With this latest accomplishment, fans have to wonder how high he will move up on the hit list.
Jeter is currently only 10 hits behind fellow shortstop Honus Wagner, who ranks sixth all time with ...
Lost in all the respect and hoopla surrounding Derek Jeter’s last season as part of the New York Yankees is the fact that the squad is still very much in the race for an American League playoff spot.
Entering play Monday, the Bronx Bombers were four games behind the Baltimore Orioles in the American League East and battling with the Toronto Blue Jays, Seattle Mariners and Kansas City Royals for wild-card positioning.
Perhaps a significant move or two at the trade deadline could push the Yankees over the top?
With that in mind, ...
You can bet on the New York Yankees being active at the 2014 MLB non-waiver trade deadline.
General manager Brian Cashman has already made three successful moves. Chase Headley and Brandon McCarthy have been very good as members of the Bombers, while Chris Capuano's first start in pinstripes was encouraging.
None of these moves represent the big acquisitions we've become accustomed to, however. Does Cashman have something bigger up his sleeve? That's uncertain for now, but we'll know for sure by 4 p.m. on Thursday.
Below are the latest rumors surrounding the Yankees.
