• Lefty prospect Lindgren gets first callup
  • Jacob Lindgren has been on a fast track to the Majors since the moment that the Yankees called his name in the most recent First-Year Player Draft, a journey that culminated Sunday with the left-hander slipping on the pinstripes for the first time.

  • Tanaka takes another positive step
  • Masahiro Tanaka threw 31 pitches in the Yankee Stadium bullpen on Sunday afternoon, and if everything goes well in his second Minor League rehab start this week, he could return to big league duty.

  • CC chased early in blowout loss to Texas

  • Nervous Jones has scoreless pitching debut
  • Garrett Jones finally got his chance to see what it feels like to be a pitcher in the big leagues, though it came under circumstances that he and the Yankees would have much rather avoided.

  • Home woes continue for CC
  • CC Sabathia's first two innings Saturday afternoon showed little indication of the barrage that was to come, but perhaps it should not have been a surprise, considering that home cooking has not seemed to agree with the big Yankees left-hander of late.

  • Yanks battle back, but can't catch Rangers
  • Prince Fielder homered twice and Mitch Moreland also cleared the wall as the Rangers knocked around Michael Pineda and the Yankees, holding on to secure a 10-9 victory on Friday night at Yankee Stadium.

  • Starting for first time, Heathcott impressive
  • Slade Heathcott spotted his name in a Major League lineup for the first time Friday, drawing the start in center field as the Yankees opened a three-game series with the Rangers, and quickly took advantage of the opportunity to make a good opening impression.
