YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Switch pitcher could see action in MLB

29-year-old New York Yankees minor leaguer Pat Venditte normally wouldn’t be a player worth noticing. He’s been in the minors for the past seven seasons after the Yankees selected him in the 45th round of the 2007 amateur draft.  On the surface, Venditte is nothing more than your non-prospect who has bounced around in small towns in an attempt to make it to the Majors. That’s...

Doucejuice of the week: Brett Gardner for hitting recently concussed Brian McCann in the head with Gatorade bucket

Last Sunday, Brian McCann hit a three-run, pinch-hit walk-off homer for the Yankees in a 7-4 win over the White Sox. Listen to Michael Kay dumbly insert his stupid 'See-Ya!' 5 seconds late, yes, but watch the number of idiot Bombers who smack the backstopper in the head. And then? Watch that imbecile Brett Gardner hit McCann in the head with a bucket of Gatorade.If you can...

Could Ellsbury's ankle be the 2014 equivalent of Gardner's 2013 ribs?

The poet Robert Frost, a man who pondered fences even more than Bobby Abreu, once famously asked whether the world will end in fire... or in ice?He was, of course, writing metaphorically about the 2014 Yankees.Will we go out swinging hot bats... or sitting in the clubhouse, pressing ice to a swollen elbow or knee? In recent years, one regular certainty about the Yankees has...

Yankees Acquire First Outman In Team History

In a groundbreaking move, the Yankees have acquired lefty specialist Josh Outman from the Indians for a player to be named later or cash. (For Alphonso's sake and for everyone's, I hope we send them Cash.)The Yankees have never had an Outman on the major league roster before. In fact, Josh Outman is the only player with the moniker to ever appear on any major league roster...

Yankees pick up Josh Outman in trade with Indians

WATCH: Yankees' Cervelli takes foul tip to groin, stays in game

New York Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli took a foul tip straight to the groin, but toughed it out and stayed in the game Wednesday night in Detroit.Cervelli went down in the bottom of the fifth as Tigers batter Rajai Davis fouled the 0-1 pitch right into his sensitive area. We would venture to guess that Cervelli was wearing a cup, or else there's no way he would have been...

After two weeks, it's official: The NY sportswriters have declared the Martin Prado deal a success

First, the obvious: Martin Prado is a nice player. He hits 10 HRs a year, bats .270 and plays three positions. The Yanks could do worse. And Prado hit well during the team's recent 5-game winning streak. (Not last night, though: He went 0-4.)Still, isn't it rather early to start congratulating the Yankee front office for trading power-hitting prospect Peter O'Brien for...

Odd good-luck charm credited for Yanks' winning streak
