Yankees | Owner confident in infield

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 12:24:05 -0700

New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner said he's confident in the team's current infield and doesn't think the team needs to sign free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox). "I'm pretty content with our infield right now," Steinbrenner said. "I think guys like (Dean) Anna and (Yangervis) Solarte have been pleasant surprises. Kelly Johnson has been good. Derek (Jeter) is healthy. So far, so good. But it's early."

Yankees | Not adding Kendrys Morales, Stephen Drew

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 11:04:48 -0700

The New York Yankees say there is "no way" they will sign free-agent 1B Kendrys Morales (Mariners) or SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox), even though they are dealing with a shortage of infielders early this season, according to a source familiar with the team's thinking. "Nobody's signing Drew or Morales, not at the money they're asking," said the source, who requested anonymity. Drew is reportedly looking for a multi-year deal worth $14 million a year, and Morales turned down "multiple contract offers" from the Seattle Mariners over the winter. The Yankees are likely to call up either INFs Russ Canzler or Scott Sizemore from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Canzler is slightly more experienced at first base than Sizemore, who has never played the position in the majors.

Yankees | Brian Roberts has sore back

Sun, 13 Apr 2014 20:23:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 2B Brian Roberts (back) underwent an MRI for his sore lower back Sunday, April 13. The MRI was negative. He is expected to be re-evaluated in the next few days.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable on his return, but it sounds like he will at least miss another game or two, so if you have healthier alternatives in the upcoming fantasy week you should use them.

Yankees | Brian Roberts nursing back injury

Sun, 13 Apr 2014 19:05:51 -0700

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday, April 13, that 2B Brian Roberts (back) complained of a lower back issue. The severity of the injury is unclear.

Fantasy Tip: And so it begins. Roberts is a talented player when he is healthy, but fantasy owners are starting to forget those days. For now, consider him day to day. If you have healthier alternatives heading into the upcoming week, use them. Roberts hasn't exactly shown a penchant for returning from injuries, nagging or otherwise.
