Yankee News

Rosters Expand Tomorrow:

Tomorrow is September 1st, which means that the Yankees roster will go from 25 man to 40 man. Some of the faces you might see during the call up might be Austin Krum or Manny Banuelos. A definite candidate who will come up tomorrow though is Jesus Montero.

 

Jesus is coming!!!

Jesus is coming!!!!

 

 

The Yankees are expected to promote prospect Jesus Montero when rosters expand Thursday. Finally. Montero is currently having his best month of the season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, batting .308/.370/.604 with eight homers and a .974 OPS. The Yankees likely won’t test him behind the plate, but he should get some at-bats as the designated hitter against left-handed starters.

Recap by Bryan Hoch of Mlb.com

BOSTON — CC Sabathia showed no signs of fretting about his inability to beat the Red Sox in four previous starts this year. Instead, he defiantly noted that he’d done it before and promised to do it again.

The left-hander made good on that statement, firing a season-high 128 pitches on Tuesday and striking out 10 as the Yankees defeated the Red Sox, 5-2, in an emotional contest at Fenway Park.

“I’ve been struggling a little bit,” Sabathia said. “I felt I had good stuff. It’s a big win against a team that we’re chasing.”

The victory nudged the Yankees within a half-game for the lead in the American League East, offering New York a boost in seeing its ace conquer his personal Boston demons.

“It’s been talked about,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “CC’s such a great pitcher, I’m sure he doesn’t want to hear that. It’s a big win for him.”

An MRI on A-Rod’s thumb came back negative Monday, but it’s possible he may sit out the entire Boston series. Eric Chavez will start in his place at third base Tuesday night.

Story by Bryan Hoch Mlb.com

BALTIMORE — The Yankees couldn’t be sure what Freddy Garcia might offer them after a 22-day layoff, but the veteran right-hander proved to be rust-proof in his return to the starting rotation.

Coming off the disabled list on Monday, Garcia allowed just a solo homer over six encouraging innings as the Yankees defeated the Orioles, 3-2.

“Everything was working — I was really happy,” said Garcia (11-7). “Hopefully, I can continue to do that in my next start.”

Nick Swisher belted a two-run homer off Baltimore starter Alfredo Simon (4-7) that held up as the difference, with Mariano Rivera closing out the ninth inning for his 34th save.

Swisher’s 21st home run of the season was his sixth in his last seven games, helping power a Yankees offense that was lacking both Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez due to injuries.

“We do have some guys out, there’s no doubt about that, and obviously you know the situation,” Swisher said. “You want to be the guy to try and step up. I know everyone in the lineup is stepping their game up a little bit.”

Garcia hadn’t pitched since Aug. 7, the result of a kitchen mishap that sliced his right index finger and kept the right-hander from throwing his splitter, a key pitch for him.

After tossing only a four-inning Minor League rehab start as preparation, Garcia somehow looked as though he hadn’t missed a beat, dispatching the Baltimore lineup with relative ease.

With the Red Sox off again tonight, the Yankees have a shot with a win to head to Fenway Park just 1.5 games behind the division lead.

Also, I am taking questions for my Yankees-Red Sox podcast tonight. If you have thoughts on the series or a question, put a comment on this thread and I will get to it as I always do.

Yankee News

Damaso Marte suffered a setback in his rehab from shoulder surgery.

Marte was knocked around for six runs over two-thirds of an inning in his first minor league rehab appearance with the GCL Yankees last Thursday. The southpaw was already a longshot to help the Yankees this season, but this pretty much seals it.

Pedro Feliciano (shoulder) suffered a setback in his rehab and is unlikely to return this season.

Feliciano tossed a scoreless inning in his first rehab appearance with the GCL Yankees last Thursday, but he’s apparently still having issues with his shoulder. It wouldn’t be surprising if he finally undergoes surgery.

Jeter and A-Rod doubtful for Tonight’s game

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Derek Jeter (knee) is unlikely to play on Monday.

Jeter was scratched from Sunday night’s nightcap of a doubleheader against Baltimore with a right knee contusion he suffered in Game One after fouling a ball off his knee. Eduardo Nunez would draw the start at short if he misses more time.

Alex Rodriguez is doubtful to play on Monday because his thumb is too sore, according to New York skipper Joe Girardi.

Rodriguez was out of the lineup in Game Two of Sunday’s doubleheader against Baltimore. A-Rod missed two games due to a sprained left thumb last week. Consider him day-to-day.
