    Prado starts again at 2B; Jeter back at SS

    Danny Knobler | Special to ESPNNewYork.com

    NEW YORK -- Not surprisingly, Joe Girardi didn't take the suggestion offered by ESPNNewYork.com's Wallace Matthews. He didn't write out a third straight lineup with a Derek Jeter-less infield for Tuesday night's game against the Houston Astros. B...

  2. Yankees' best infield does not include Jeter

    Wallace Matthews

    On my scorecard from Sunday's 4-2 New York Yankees victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, there are five plays on the Rays side of the ledger that are circled, the universal designation that something extraordinary was done by a defender. One of them wa...

  3. One (more) last chance for the Yankees

    Wallace Matthews

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The New York Yankees took two out of three games from the Tampa Bay Rays this weekend, which is not important in and of itself. They still return home a game closer to .500 and a game further away from first place in the Ameri...

  4. Rapid Reaction: Yankees 4, Rays 2

    Wallace Matthews

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- OK, it wasn't a great road trip -- two up, three down, and another precious game lost in the division race -- but it's a lot better to go home after a win rather than a loss. And that's what the Yankees will do after Sunday's ...

  5. Tanaka still feels good on Sunday

    Wallace Matthews

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- After Masahiro Tanaka threw the first bullpen session of his rehab from a torn elbow ligament on Saturday, Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said the real test would come Sunday morning. "It's great that he got throug...

  6. Game 122: Yankees (62-59) at Rays (61-62)

    Wallace Matthews

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Brian McCann returns after missing six games with a concussion, and Derek Jeter is the DH for the second day in a row on the Tropicana Field turf. Otherwise, there are no surprises in the Yankees lineup that will face right...

  7. The return of Captain Clutch

    Wallace Matthews

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- To Martin Prado, watching Derek Jeter bat in the ninth inning of Saturday's Yankees-Rays game must have seemed like watching one of those grainy old newsreeels of Babe Ruth, the movements herky-jerky and the entire scene bathe...

  9. Rapid Reaction: Yankees 3, Rays 2

    Wallace Matthews

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- When a team is going as bad as the Yankees have been, a 3-2 victory can feel like a rout and a game decided by a scratched-across run can seem like the detonation of an offensive powder keg. Whether today's win over the Ra...

  10. Notes: Beltran back in right field

    Wallace Matthews

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Carlos Beltran last played the outfield May 11, coming into a game against the Milwaukee Brewers as a pinch hitter for Kelly Johnson -- remember him? -- and then playing the final three innings in right field. Since then, B...

    Wallace Matthews

    St. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Carlos Beltran returns to the outfield for the first time since May 11 this afternoon, which means Derek Jeter gets a DH day and Brendan Ryan makes a rare start -- his 12th of the season -- at shortstop. Ah, but will the Yanke...

  13. Metal detectors coming to Stadium

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- When the Yankees return home Tuesday, expect to see some new additions at the ballpark: airport-style metal detectors at several exits. Major League Baseball has mandated that all stadiums be equipped with metal detectors by the start...

  14. Yankees' promises sounding empty

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- Well, at least the Yankees won't have to face Chris Archer this weekend. If there is any positive to the upcoming three-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays -- a series that became all the more vital after the Yankees dropped both game...

  15. Notes: Kelley too honest for his own good

    Wallace Matthews

    BALTIMORE -- We all know that honesty is the best policy. Unless, of course, you're a fan of a team on which one of the players has the nerve to tell the plain, unvarnished truth. Such is the case of Shawn Kelley, who had the double misfortune of ...

  16. Girardi pushes panic button, costs Yanks

    Wallace Matthews

    BALTIMORE -- Joe Girardi seemed more upset about losing the argument than losing the game. That, my friends, pretty much says it all about Wednesday night's crushing loss to the Baltimore Orioles and about the true state of the manager of the New ...

  17. Rapid Reaction: Orioles 5, Yankees 3

    Wallace Matthews

    BALTIMORE -- The New York Yankees have become a team that can't win for losing. They lost out on a rare call at home plate in the seventh inning. They lost their manager in an argument with an umpire that he probably should have won. And they lost...
