Jeter gets on the field, Colon does long toss

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jun 21, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Here’s the latest Associated Press update on the injured Yankees down in Tampa.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees’ shortstop Derek Jeter has resumed onfield work.

The Yankees’ captain threw for the first time Tuesday, including long toss, since going on the 15-day disabled list last week because of a strained right calf.

Jeter also worked out indoors and had treatment at New York’s spring training complex. He’s six hits away from 3,000 in his career.

Jeter limped off the field during a game on June 13 against Cleveland. It’s the first time since 2003 he’s been on the 15-day DL.

Also, right-handed starter Bartolo Colon, sidelined by a strained right hamstring, has started a throwing program that included long toss on Tuesday.

Injured relievers Rafael Soriano (right elbow inflammation) and Damaso Marte (left shoulder surgery) played catch.

    So Cashman mentioned last week that a trade might not be for an upgrade but probably for a change of scenery. Which position player can you see being traded for a change of scenery? Swisher is the only one the comes to mind.

  9. SoS June 21st, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Is anyone a little concerned about C.C.’s last 3 outings? He has given up 4,4, and 6 runs in those games. Granted he went deep into games. His last 10 starts he has given up 4 or more runs in 6 of those starts.

  10. BoJo June 21st, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Chad–can you find out if the two Yankee South Americans (DePaula and ?–can’t recall name) that are having visa problems are working out with the team in a South American league or camp…or are they just sitting on sidelines wasting development time until the visa issue is cleared up.

  11. upstate kate June 21st, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    SoS
    IIRC, CC gets a ton of run support, and pitches to the scoreboard. So, no, not concerned about CC at all.

  12. MTU June 21st, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Was Soriano catching Colons long toss? Thats gotta be the slowest plane ever from New York to Tampa. He would have been there already if he would have just instead decided to walk.

  14. m June 21st, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    kate,

    Isn’t the pitching to the scoreboard a fallacy? For one thing it’s not too smart given that bullpens can blow up on any given day.

    Sometimes you just get beat (Red Sox?) or balls just drop in. But at times you just don’t have it, which he didn’t against the Cubs. That was one time he really needed the run support. IIRC we were losing that game while he was still on the mound.

  15. MTU June 21st, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Off topic:

    Note to Butt Selig.

    Instead of selling the Dodgers to one of your crony friends how about you let a real competitior have them.

    Like Mark Cuban.

    Or better yet. That Steve Garvey consortium that I believe includes
    Orel Hirschiser.

    Nah. It’ll never happen.

    :(

  16. SoS June 21st, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Kate,
    Your right about the run support and with that comes less intensity/ focus on every pitch. That Red Sox implosion left a bad taste in my mouth and the Cubs jumped on him early to a 4-1 lead i believe. Maybe Im just being too paranoid. I just looked at his stats and those 4 + runs 6 of 10 games got me thinking. Its probably nothing.

    CC in one of his recent post game interviews said (paraphrasing of course) when he has that much of a lead, he just goes out and pitches w/o worrying about being too fine on his control. I think the phrase “pitching to the scoreboard” even came up in the interview.

    MTU–

    Actually the Dodger situation is a fascinating topic. On June 30, McCourt won’t have the money to pay the players. If MLB seizes the club and pays them, McCourt loses any chance of squeezing any more money out of club to pay off divorce and other debts. The sale of club probably would have the monies going to pay off debts he incurred.

    If McCourt gets an injunction to stop MLB from seizing control, then MLB could just not pay the players and have all of them become FAs.

    Great game of cat and mouse. First time I have ever seen anything like it.

  23. upstate kate June 21st, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    I didn’t think he meant that he had any less focus, just that he didn’t have to be as careful as say King Felix, or a pitcher that gets less run support.

    Trader,

    I would add Liriano to your list and he’s a more realistic target than any of the others. The question is whether the Twins will deal him and if so will the deal him fairly. I don’t know the answers to those questions but a healthy Liriano would have the potential to significantly upgrade the rotation and.make it a more viable WS contended IMO. If Im making a trade then I want the CHANCE of that difference maker.

  28. MTU June 21st, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    Bojo-

    McCourt. Sounds like McDonald. Only this guy sells BS.

    I hope he looses the team. I’m confident he will. Unless he pulls off some other sleazy deal.

    Doesn’t deserve the right to own a proud franchise like the Dodgers IMO.

    You’re right. It’s a fascinating situation.

    All I want out of it are Kerhsaw and Kemp.

  34. m June 21st, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    kate,

    I see what you’re saying. But if a pitcher is saying they’re pitching to the scoreboard, maybe it’s to cover up not having too good control that day?

    I can see being more aggressive in the strike zone because you want to put the ball in play. But nibbling and missing location? Usually gets you into trouble.

    I think pitchers and their catcher usually have a game plan on how they want to approach a particular lineup. Who to be careful with, who you can attack. In general, I think the good pitchers (that includes CC) try their best to stick to the plan.

    Anyway, I think it’s valid to bring up that CC hasn’t looked that great. But he hasn’t hurt us, his ERA still looks good, and usually great for us in the post-season. That’s all that matters!

  35. Mell June 21st, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    Isn’t the pitching to the scoreboard a fallacy?

    ==============================

    Yes.

    Score was 1-1 when Sabathia allowed the Cubs to take a 4-1 lead. Scoreboard said 2-0 Yankees when he allowed 6 to Boston and it said 0-0 when he allowed 4 to them a couple weeks earlier. In two games against Baltimore in which the Yankees outscored the O’s 28-5, and Sabathia threw 16 innings, allowing 3 runs. He does the best he can, it’s usually very good, and you usually get it for 7 innings. Every so often he hits a bump in the road or doesn’t have his A+ stuff. Still usually keeps his team in the game even when that the case.

    Count me among the not worried about him.

    As Merv Griffin used to say–”fascinating!”

    If McCourt is going to lose it all anyway, he could slap an injunction on MLB and let his players walk. He probably thinks MLB would flinch and pay the payroll rather than let that happen. Bigtime game of chicken.

    I think Selig wants to completely ruin McCourt and set him as an example for any future owner who wants to suck the value out of a franchise. I think Selig might let the players walk if McCourt were to get an injunction–thus further eroding the value of the franchise and hurting McCourt when he does sell it.

    Selig could do whatever he wants to screw McCourt over, and then rebuild the franchise with MLB money and a special draft. Unusual circumstances would allow him to gets owners to agree. I wouldn’t underestimate either his power or anger.

  60. m June 21st, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    kate,

    In all fairness, if CC admitted to pitching to the scoreboard an interview then he does practice it. But I still don’t think it would explain a period of mediocrity. We still won, but with less run support those W’s would turn to L’s. And with us trying to get some separation from the Sox, those 1 or 2 games that could get away while pitching to the scoreboard could mean something later. It’s something I don’t think CC would do regularly.

  61. GreenBeret7 June 21st, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    Pitching to the scoreboard is having a huge lead and just trying to get outs without using your best pitches and over exherting yourself…especially late in the season. Jack Morris was a prime example, as is Sabathia, quite often. The object is wins, not pretty ERAs. Jim Kaat spoke about that a lot.

  66. West Coast Yankee Fan June 21st, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    The Dodgers situation is simple to understand. The McCourts have been lousy owners who used the Dodgers as a personal bank. Bud Selig wants him gone and that is what will happen after June 30th when Selig and MLB will take the team when McCourt cannot meet payroll and sell it, which won’t be hard.

  67. SoS June 21st, 2011 at 2:10 pm

    I think Jones should have done his soccer impression after he rolled that pitch for a dp and went to the ground in agony until the ump called the final out. Then ran back to the outfield without any obvious limp.

    btw, I think Soccer(even though i dont watch it) should red card all players that are faking injuries.

  68. SoS June 21st, 2011 at 2:11 pm

  69. blake June 21st, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    Pitchers do throw different pitches and in different locations depending on the score. For example…..if CC is up 6-0 he might groove a fastball behind in a count 2-0 to challenge the hitter and to prevent a walk…..wheras in a 1-0 game he isn’t doing that.

  70. GreenBeret7 June 21st, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    The only thing Morris worried about was wins and completing games whenever possible. He was pretty good at both. Catfish hunter was another that would do that.

  73. blake June 21st, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    I have no real way to back this up…..but I would guess that Sabathia gives up several runs a year with big leads that maybe he doesn’t if the games were closer. That shows up in the ERA over the course of the season.

  74. GreenBeret7 June 21st, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    Saw a lot of games where Kaat, Morris and Hunter had big leads late in games and would throw fastballs over the plate to just get the outs. gave up a lot of solo homers, but, usually finished the job off.

    SoS,

    Not following football. I feel there will be football sooner than later. There’s way too much money involved.

    As for the NBA, I think I read that the owners conceded on guaranteed contracts. Which is fine. They just need to stop giving out bad ones, which in general they do. Gilbert Arenas was probably the worst, but otherwise the ones to Kobe, LeBron, et al. Those work out. Dirk debating rest or playing for the German team. Whatcha think? He should go, no?

    What’s the rule now? If you have an “injury” in soccer, who soon can you come back in?

  84. SoS June 21st, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    WCYF,
    My point was that there are too many roll around and ACT like you broke a leg. Then hop back up when the yellow/red card comes up. Its ridiculous. I only watch the world cup rooting for Brazil. But other than that, not a second. I think they need to get rid of off sides, acting and widen the goal. A 2-0 game in the first half is usually lights out for the other team. We need 10-8 games.

  85. GreenBeret7 June 21st, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    The GCL Yankees showed plenty of “spart” in their 3-2 win today. Down 1-0, they tied it. Down 2-1, they tied it late. One it in the 9th. 3-2.

    Love would be a huge pickup. The guy does the dirty work and has a perimeter game(avg. more points than pau). If they pull this trade off, i will be crying foul just like the prior Gasol for free tacos trade.

  87. GreenBeret7 June 21st, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    GB,
    Intersting?? Did you mean they scored ONE in the ninth or just WON it in the ninth.

  89. SoS June 21st, 2011 at 2:38 pm

    I would have went with they win-ded it in the ninth.

  90. DocTodd June 21st, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    Question: Does anybody think Jeter will bat anywhere but 1st or 2nd in the lineup, and if so,where?? Just curious what everyone thinks…

  91. GreenBeret7 June 21st, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    I’ve been up a long time today, OsO. I’m too tired to even blame the dog right now.

  92. Rob_NY June 21st, 2011 at 2:41 pm

    SoS — That’s crazy. Why would you want a 10-8 soccer game? A lot of the fun of watching is how important each score is.

    I watch every match the Dynamo play here in Houston and go to all the home games. It’s one of my favorite sports and I much prefer it to basketball. The flops are a bit over the top I agree, and that red card on Henry was probably wrong. I don’t know what the rules call for but it seemed from the video like the official wasn’t up for the moment. Removing offsides and widening the goal would take away a whole lot of the skill required.

  93. GreenBeret7 June 21st, 2011 at 2:42 pm

  94. m June 21st, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    Doc,

    I think that Girardi will be stubborn. That means Gardner gets the shaft. Nothing new there, tho!

    I wouldn’t be too excited about the increase in runs since Jeter went on the list. We’re playing against the NL and some not so good ones to boot.

    Jeter really belongs in the 6-7-8 range, but the whole L-R-L thing and deference to Jeter makes it difficult.

    I don’t think he’s the 9th hitter. Swisher or the catcher would go there before him.

  95. UnKnown June 21st, 2011 at 2:44 pm

    Soriano is such a dope. Only chance he has to endear himself to the fans is to be lights out if he ever comes back. My prediction is that he comes back for an inning and says “something just doesn’t feel right” afterwards.

    Unfortunately, he has been such a waste he won’t opt out and we will have to hear about him next year as well as pay him too.

    I agree the awesome part of the game is the ball possession, thwarted attacks, and how hard it is to score a goal. I don’t watch MLS but I watch European soccer. It’s awesome during the winter when there is no baseball on.

  97. Rich in NJ June 21st, 2011 at 2:45 pm

    Let Jeter gets his 3000th hit while leading off, and then move him down v. RHP. He can still leadoff v. LHP.

    That GCL roster is loaded with upside guys especially on the position player side. Custodio, Leonora, Tavares as well as Jake Anderson and Taylor Austin…. Ravel Santana and Yeicok Calderon may be the 2 best players from a tools perspective on the whole team.

    Also I’m very happy to see Caleb Cotham finally healthy enough to get back in games. He’s a beast!

    Rich I think that might fly…after 3000, move him down vs RHP…..guess we’ll find out soon….

  104. blake June 21st, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    “Let Jeter gets his 3000th hit while leading off, and then move him down v. RHP. He can still leadoff v. LHP.”

    If Jeter hits when he comes back then he’ll remain in the lead off spot …..if things continue as they have though then it’ll be probably unfold like Rich suggests……he’ll get 3,000 the lead off vs LHP and will probably be moved down to 7th or so vs RHP.

    “For all of the Jeter has to be dropped guys take a look @ his #’s leading off games and leading off innings…”

    Which means what exactly? Leading off the game still nets him more AB over the course of the season and he doesn’t hit enough v. RHP to justify that.

  107. SoS June 21st, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    I thought an upgrade in your neck of the woods GB is having NO windows or doors? Whats your plan b on fighting the scorching heat?
    Spray bottle?
    Chewing on ice?
    Sit in the bath tub all day?
    Keep the fridge open?

  108. Rich in NJ June 21st, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    blake

    Here’s the thing that I think some people overlook. If Jeter ever regains his ability to hit RHP, he can always be moved back up.

    It’s 100 degrees plus out here in East Nowhere, GA, probably just as hot on the coast. Not the ideal season to be without doors and windows, even if it’s just for a few hours.

    Dives are really a very small part of the game and experienced soccer referees have seen it all and are well suited to getting it right most of the time. Offsides is a critical rule otherwise you would have hangers sitting there. The field is too large unlike basketball for it to be any other way. It’s like baseball in many respects, non-fans don’t get it and it seems slow when in reality there is a great deal of strategy and tactical play.

  115. GreenBeret7 June 21st, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    Tom, it’s 101 degrees right now. I’ll start that stuff around 5 AM until around noon and finish the following day.

    The time off might be a blessing for Jeter. He may have extra in the tank for stretch run and postseason, assuming he’s healed up.

  124. J. Alfred Prufrock June 21st, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    I haven’t looked it over, but it does seem like Gardner has trouble to no chance when it comes to the better pitchers, even the RH. If he could continue his improvements with bunting & can learn to control his bat more, like hitting grounders the other way, that would certainly help. Those things considered, I can’t become militant about his having to lead off. There are too many “if he only did this more” etc, for me to be really amped about him. If he were 23 years old, I’d probably have a different view.

  125. Erin June 21st, 2011 at 3:13 pm
