Several reports indicate that Mark Teixeira intends to announce his retirement at a press conference later today.
The World Series is on the line for the New York Yankees as they take on the San Francisco Giants.
The New York Yankees have reportedly told Andrew Miller that he will not be dealt before the August 1 trade deadline this summer; Miller, who is 5-1 with a 1.51 ERA and seven saves this season, has been one of the Yankees best relievers this season and has also been mentioned in several trade rumors this year, but even with the Yankees struggles, Miller won't be going anywhere in the 2016 season.
With all of the talk of the New York Yankees being sellers at the trade deadline, the team could be looking to buy instead, as reports have said that the Yankees may look to add a starting pitcher before the August 1 trade deadline this season; the Yankees starters this season were a combined 24-31 heading into Sunday, which could explain why the Yankees may look for another arm for the rotation in 2016.
The New York Yankees have announced their starting lineup for Sunday afternoon's series finale against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park, Chad Green has been recalled from Class-AAA Scranton to make a spot start in the series finale and will try to prevent the Yankees from being swept in the series against San Diego.
The New York Yankees have announced their starting lineup for Saturday night against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park; Ivan Nova will look to pitch the Yankees to a win after they had fallen short on Friday night in a 7-6 loss.
On Saturday, Nick Swisher decided to opt out of his contract with the New York Yankees, as he will spend the rest of the 2016 season with his family following the birth of he and his wife's second child over the weekend; Swisher had spent most of the 2016 season with the Yankees' Class-AAA team in Scranton and hit .255 with seven home runs and 25 RBI in 55 games.
If the New York Yankees had played into the bottom of the ninth inning and into extras during Friday night's game against the San Diego Padres, Alex Rodriguez would have had to play third base for the first time in a regular season game since the 2013 season, but the Yankees rally fell short and lost 7-6, thus, A-Rod wasn't needed in the game to play in the field, but had his glove ready just in case.
The New York Yankees have announced their starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Texas Rangers at Yankee Stadium; Mark Teixeira will return to the lineup after missing Wednesday night's game, however, Carlos Beltran will miss his second game for the Yankees due to the hamstring that caused him to leave Tuesday night's game and miss Wednesday against Texas as well.
With the Chicago Cubs continuing to scout the relievers for the New York Yankees and their desire to land Andrew Miller from them at the trade deadline, reports have said that if the Yankees are going to part with Miller to the Cubs, they want young, slugging outfielder Kyle Schwarber coming back in the deal; the Cubs for the time being, have labeled Schwarber as off limits, but their stance could change as the trade deadline gets closer and if they feel like Miller would be a missing piece for a World Series run.
