7/26/2015 | Improved splitter has Eovaldi in peak form

The most valuable addition to Nathan Eovaldi's arsenal received some needed tweaks last month, as the right-hander fiddled with his grip and tried to add some diving action to a splitter that seemed to be behaving more like a knuckleball.


7/26/2015 | Warren an option for Tuesday start in Texas

Adam Warren threw 29 pitches in Saturday's 8-5 victory over the Twins, but that does not necessarily preclude him from starting Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.


7/26/2015 | A-Rod credits Girardi as integral to resurgence

The schedule dictates that Alex Rodriguez will celebrate his 40th birthday in Arlington, Texas, a place that holds some significance as one of his former big league haunts. Yet no matter where the Yankees slugger travels this year, he believes that he is in a good place.

7/26/2015 | Gibson can answer Yanks' statement in finale

The Twins looked poised for a second victory over the Yankees in as many nights on Saturday, holding a five-run lead entering the seventh inning, but the Yankees clawed their way back, thanks in large part to Alex Rodriguez, whose third homer of the night was one of two hit off Twins closer Glen Perkins in the ninth inning. On Sunday at 1:10 p.m. CT, the two clubs -- both currently in line to reach the postseason -- will face off in the rubber match at Target Field, where the Yankees have historically played well. New York is 72-36 against the Twins since 2000 and will send Nathan Eovaldi to the mound looking to take the series.

7/25/2015 | Goody joins Yanks to provide bullpen depth

Nick Goody was in camp with the Yankees this past spring, so the right-handed rookie was able to identify plenty of familiar faces when he walked into a big league clubhouse for the first time on Saturday afternoon at Target Field.


7/25/2015 | Yanks' rest plan for Tanaka leaves Tuesday void

The Yankees will identify a sixth starter to face the Rangers on Tuesday in Arlington, which will afford Masahiro Tanaka an extra day of rest as the organization continues to handle the right-hander carefully.


7/25/2015 | Pineda falters as Yanks eye trade market

With the Trade Deadline approaching and available pitching being actively shopped in the marketplace, Yankees starter Michael Pineda offered the kind of outing that could provide GM Brian Cashman with some food for thought, allowing five runs in a 10-1 loss to the Twins on Friday night.


7/24/2015 | Yanks prospect Severino handling Triple-A

7/24/2015 | CC finding form entering matchup with Twins

CC Sabathia has experienced his fair share of ups and downs for the Yankees this year, but the veteran lefty has given up just three runs in his past two starts. On Saturday, he will face another southpaw, the Twins' Tommy Milone, who was chased from his last start after just 2 2/3 innings but had thrown six consecutive quality starts prior to that.


7/24/2015 | First crack: Ellsbury, Gardner set the pace

7/23/2015 | Steady work has Ellsbury back in top form

Jacoby Ellsbury has been back with the Yankees for weeks, but Ellsbury the All-Star, the game changer, hadn't quite returned until Thursday's 9-3 win over the Orioles. As he worked his way back into the everyday routine of playing center field and batting leadoff, he hadn't looked quite comfortable.


7/23/2015 | Though improving, Tanaka sets sights higher

Masahiro Tanaka knows when he's about to have a good day. It starts in the bullpen, where his breaking balls don't fight him and he's able to put pitches where he wants to. His catcher notices it, too.


7/23/2015 | Yankees back efficient Tanaka to sweep O's

The Yankees enjoyed an offensive barrage to complete a three-game sweep of the O's with a 9-3 win on Thursday at Yankee Stadium. Jacoby Ellsbury had three of New York's 13 hits and finished a triple shy of the cycle, driving in four runs, and Chase Headley plated three.


7/23/2015 | Yanks reunite with Hughes in Minnesota

As the season moves closer to the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline -- the last chance for clubs to complete deals without exposing players to the waiver wire -- a pair of contenders will open a three-game series in Minnesota. Michael Pineda will take the ball for the Yankees, while fellow right-hander Phil Hughes will start for the Twins.

7/22/2015 | Jimenez, Tanaka square off in matinee finale

It must be something with the sun. Both Ubaldo Jimenez and Masahiro Tanaka, who will start for the Orioles and Yankees, respectively, on Thursday afternoon, have found less success during day games than at night.


7/22/2015 | Betances feeding off Bronx energy

All-Star Dellin Betances has embraced life in the Yankees' bullpen and is making a difference in the American League East race.


7/22/2015 | Healthy Ryan revels in chance to contribute

7/21/2015 | Lefty nemesis Young to stay in lineup vs. southpaws
