Yankees lost. Mariners actually won a game. Oh well bound to happen. Hughes needs to step it up or Nova should be brought back ASAP!!!!
Stick with us throughout the night for the latest trades and rumors.
FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi report that the Yankees have “intensified” their pursuit of Hiroki Kuroda.
The Tigers, who have had a longstanding interest in Kuroda, are also in the mix, along with the Red Sox, Rangers and Indians. There is a question about whether Kuroda will be willing to waive his no-trade clause to go to an East Coast team, but recent indications are that he’d approve the move on a short-term basis. Jul. 27 – 9:01 pm et
- Though the Yankees and Reds have been the most active suitors for Jimenez, they aren’t close to a deal, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. The Yankees aren’t close to matching Colorado’s asking price and it’s hard to imagine the Reds obtaining Jimenez without surrendering Mesoraco. The Tigers and Red Sox are ‘on the fringe’ of the trade talks and the Rangers are no longer considered a candidate to acquire the right-hander.
The Cubs called the Yankees about Zambrano, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, but the Yankees have no interest.
The Yankees signed 14th rounder Rookie Davis to a deal worth $550K, according to Callis (on Twitter). The right-hander/first baseman obtained the biggest bonus so far for any player selected after the third round.
Eric Chavez hasn’t been with the Yankees for long since he was out with an injury to his foot, but when he has been with the Yankees he has made an impact on the team.
Chavez was originally signed to a minor league contract with the Yankees but made the team in Spring Training. In April he was batting an even .300 average with 5 RBI’s under his belt. In May he only had 3 at-bats before injuring himself running the bases and leaving the game. He had been rehabbing his foot before dealing with a back injury & a kidney stone.
Chavez returned to the Yankees yesterday and was in the starting lineup to give Eduardo Nunez the day off and he impressed. Even though he was 1 for 3, his 1 hit led to him getting an RBI. He also made a couple of good plays at third base to help the Yankees win the game 4-1.
Chavez had believed that he would have been done before the season began. He had serious thoughts on retiring but the Yankees gave him a chance and he had proved himself worthy to the team. The only thing Chavez would need to focus on now is just staying healthy and to be careful running the base-paths.

Phil Hughes (1-2, 9.47) vs. Felix Hernandez (8-9, 3.47)
Enjoy the game. If Hughes can’t pitch well against the Mariners, then the Yankees have even more serious problems than any of us thought. Rafael Soriano has not been activated yet and will be up on Friday.

Game Review from MLB.com’s Matt Fortuna:
NEW YORK — Mother Nature was pretty much the only thing capable of stopping CC Sabathia on Tuesday night. Having postponed two Major League games in the past three weeks with her rain, she had two more victories during that period of time than the Seattle Mariners, who had none.
A 17th consecutive loss for the Mariners appeared to be a foregone conclusion by the fourth inning on Tuesday, when Curtis Granderson’s solo home run broke a scoreless tie. What was in doubt, what kept Yankee Stadium alive and anxious before and after a 30-minute rain delay, was whether any Mariners player would do so much as reach first base against the Yankees’ ace.
The answer came in the form of a Brendan Ryan single with one out in the seventh inning, until that point the only blemish on Sabathia in the Yankees’ eventual 4-1 win. Sabathia, who had fallen behind 2-0 to Ryan, recovered by striking out the next two batters, his last resulting in a career-high 14 punchouts on the night.
