Yankees pregame: Teixeira, Ellsbury hurting

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Jul 02, 2014 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Mark Teixeira and Jacoby Ellsbury aren’t in the lineup, and it isn’t just a typical day of rest.

Teixeira had his left knee drained after last night’s game. Joe Girardi said he expects him back for tomorrow night’s game in Minnesota.

“He’s been playing with a little fluid on it for a few days,” Girardi said.

Ellsbury isn’t feeling great in general, according to Girardi.

“Ells is just kind of beat up and needs a day off,” Girardi said. “He should be back in there tomorrow, too. He’s a little bit sore all over. So he needs a day. And a guy needs a day, he needs a day.”

The struggling offense loses the .288 bat and the speed of Ellsbury and its leading homer (15) and RBI (41) producer in Teixeira, but the Yankees still have to try to avoid a sweep by the Rays.

“It is what it is and someone else has got to come up with some big hits today,” Girardi said.

Girardi added this about the offense: “There’s no magic formula. Can I go, I don’t know, walk on my hands through the clubhouse? No, I can’t do that. It’s just continue to work and you keep throwing them out there. You try to give the guys that you believe are the most productive consistent at-bats and eventually it’s going to change.”

    If any of the IF prospects could play better D than these guys, they might have a chance, but not seeing it. Esp from the AAA group… unfortunately. But I bet Gary could outhit any DH or C we have in the fold

    The D is not as important as improving the pathetic O.

  2. bbb51 July 2nd, 2014 at 11:30 am

    “It is what it is” = I know the lineup sucks

  3. blake July 2nd, 2014 at 11:31 am

    Good thing the 40 year old in the lineup doesn’t need a day off given that he’s the only one hitting.

  4. blake July 2nd, 2014 at 11:32 am

    I’m a little sore today but I’m still at work #gamer

  5. austinmac July 2nd, 2014 at 11:34 am

    Even Girardi is getting very discouraged. He has tried to be optimistic in support of the team and his players, but he must feel a bit dishonest. He knows. We all know. It is what it is. A mediocre team at best.

    This team, once it’s pitchers reach innings limits, could well be a 70-75 win team. What basis do we have to expect better?

  6. yankeefeminista July 2nd, 2014 at 11:36 am

    “The D is not as important as improving the pathetic O.”

    Ya think? Girardi thinks otherwise, and said they prioritize good D when they chose this infield. You can’t make this stuff up.

  7. blake July 2nd, 2014 at 11:37 am

    “This team, once it’s pitchers reach innings limits, could well be a 70-75 win team. What basis do we have to expect better?”

    nah they’ll win 85 games and get a worse draft pick….which they’ll probably lose to sign JJ Hardy or somebody.

  8. austinmac July 2nd, 2014 at 11:37 am

    Soriano and Ichiro in the outfield. Good thing that’s our strength.

    Will Soriano strike out two or more times today?

  9. yankeefeminista July 2nd, 2014 at 11:38 am

    prioritized*

    I do think they have have elevated run saving (even when it doesn’t work) so far above O it is scary. Maybe they need new advanced metric gurus because whoever is in place right now is delusional.

  10. Tyler July 2nd, 2014 at 11:39 am

    I can take losses but this is the most boring team that I have ever rooted for in sports. Maybe once Refsnyder and some of the young guys get called up, things will get more interesting but outside of Betances and Tanaka and Jeter’s last year, this team is dreadful. And I say that as a big baseball fan. Attendance next year is going to be so ugly.

    from a legacy stand point there is no way he’s better off in Seattle

    Ellsbury isn’t feeling great in general, according to Girardi.

    “Ells is just kind of beat up and needs a day off,”

    ==========

    Cano would have played. That doesn’t mean Ells is a softy or anything like that but Robbie would never express to his coach I need a day off.

    it seems like the main reason they signed him was to trade him this summer.

  14. Cashmoney July 2nd, 2014 at 11:41 am

    There is going to be blood if this team goes 5 under… changes? that’s probably as a realistic scenario as any in prompting some changes.

  15. blake July 2nd, 2014 at 11:45 am

    “IDK. Radio hosts have brought this up over the past few yrs you no longer have to be in NY to build your legacy.”

    you don’t have to be but it helps and there is no legacy like a yankee one…..but I think the main issue with Cano and his legacy is gonna be in his homer total……

    if you knock lets say 5 homers per year off then over 10 season that’s 50 less homers he’d hit in Seattle than he’d hit in NY……and from the looks of it the results may be more severe than that. It’s not just seattle…..every park in that division except for Houston is like Yellowstone…..so you go from a division where every park is a hitter’s park to one where every park is a pitchers park then it’s going to make an impact…….and for most players it doesn’t matter but Cano is going to be up for HOF discussion and maybe even greatest 2B of all time discussion……so his homer total on a personal level is going to matter.

  16. austinmac July 2nd, 2014 at 11:45 am

    Blake,

    With innings limits on Nuno, Whitley and Phelps. CC at 88 mph, the second half sure seems to point to the team being worse. Your forecast is for several games better. Considering we should likely be worse than our record says already, I don’t see improvement.

    Where is it coming from?

  17. astrocityfan July 2nd, 2014 at 11:48 am

    per @jeesesancheMLB Yanks have signed SS Diego Castillo to a 750k deal

  18. blake July 2nd, 2014 at 11:48 am

    Mac,
    they’ll make a trade or overachieve to win 85 games I feel sure…..they did last year and on paper they were worse last year than this year. If they can’t make the playoffs it would actually be more beneficial for the bottom to fall out and them win like 70…..but they will ensure that doesn’t happen IMO…….they never quit…..they are like General Custard…..

  19. J. Alfred Prufrock July 2nd, 2014 at 11:48 am

    Odds,

    Yep, Robi is an iron man. I’m even weary of the ironic “lazy Robi” parodies.

    I just remain incredulous they let him walk out of Yankee Stadium for nothing and so willfully damaged the team’s pedigree.

    After the noise of all the disputes here have died down, there’s no Cano and that is unacceptable and very sad. Very sad.

  20. austinmac July 2nd, 2014 at 11:49 am

    I think Cano is very happy he left an organization in turmoil and headed in the right direction. He is a player and not a Yankee fan. He’d rather play for a team that has a chance.

    There is no legacy in being the best player on a bad team.

    Diego CastilloRank: 16Barquisimeto, VenezuelaHeight: 5’10″, Weight: 150Position: SSDOB: 10/28/97Bats: R, Throws: RTwitter: @diegocastillo28Scouting Grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 45 | Run: 55 | Arm: 60 | Field: 60
    One of several talented shortstops from Venezuela in this year’s class, Castillo grew up admiring Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and patterned his game after the New York legend.

    On defense, Castillo has good footwork and soft hands. He has one of the stronger arms in the class, and that’s part of the reason the 5-foot-10, 150-pound infielder could stay at shortstop once he signs with a Major League club and moves through the ranks in the Minor Leagues.

    A decent runner, Castillo has shown good instincts on the bases and good mechanics in the batter’s box. The result is a repeatable swing. Some view him as a line-drive hitter that will not hit for much power. He played some games in the International Prospect League in the Dominican Republic.

    Based in Barquisimeto, Venezuela, Castillo is trained by Jose Luis Montero. The Yankees have expressed serious interest in the infielder.

    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/prospec...../#list=int

    he’s ranked #16 by MLB.com in the class….he’s not one of the big guns they are after but a nice piece to throw at the wall. Like the rest…..he’s years away at 16

  25. Chip July 2nd, 2014 at 11:54 am

    I’ve just put my finger on it – the biggest thing about Cano is that it’s the first time Yankee fans have felt like fans of other teams.

    Fans of Seattle, Boston, Oakland, St. Louis, whomever – small market or large market – have all gone through this before. Yankee fans, especially those who grew up in the 90s have never had to know what it’s like to see a player in his prime walk away from the team.

    I’m sure Seattle fans wish Alex had never gone to Texas, St. Louis fans wanted Albert to retire a Cardinal, Oakland fans wanted to keep a slew of guys…and yeah Red Sox fans wanted to keep Ellsbury.

  26. blake July 2nd, 2014 at 11:54 am

    “Guys can we get back to discussing what would prompt MLB to hand out a testosterone waiver…?”

    just reading the article it sounds like at the time that MLB didn’t have an advisory board in place to question it…..so all you had to do was to find a doctor to sign off on it? So my guess is said doctor ok’d it on the grounds that he needed it to correct a medical problem caused from prior steroid use.

    Basically it sounds like Arod tried to claim that his body wasn’t making testosterone anymore because of the steroids and he needed it to replace it.

    It’s all stupid…..MLB has nobody to blame but themselves……

  27. ac1 July 2nd, 2014 at 11:54 am

    Cuevas and Castillo so far.

    Haven’t seen official note for the four they were associated with before.
    Dermis Garcia, Nelson Gomez, Christopher Torres and Hyo-Joon Park. Any word?

  28. charlestonchew July 2nd, 2014 at 11:55 am

    I’ve been saying this for a few weeks: the best offensive upgrade the Yankees have is to try and get Soriano in a groove. The guy can carry a team, but he’s been riding the bench. We need to get him some reps so we can see if he can get his timing back. He’s openly discussed the fact that he’s not getting enough at-bats to really turn things around.

    The guy can rake when he’s on and Girardi hasn’t given him a chance to break out of the slump. Ichiro has been OK, but Sori can be better and we’ll never know until he gets playing time again. We’re not going to find people on the trade market who are any better, so it’s time to sink or swim with the guys we got. Sori included.

  29. blake July 2nd, 2014 at 11:55 am

    When the tough get going, Tex and Ellsbury go missing. No doubt they both have legitimate injuries but with this being the last home game before an 11-game road trip, the Yanks in danger of falling below .500 and the last-placed Rays on the verge of a sweep, I would expect even the walking wounded to insist on playing.

    How soon will the Yanks promote Refsnyder? It seems to me that it’s smart to promote I’m while he’s still raking before he comes back to earth. As much as I else vein him as a prospect, I think we all understand that he won’t slug 600 at Aaa or MLB. But he is right now and one of our biggest weaknesses is our infield, Roberts and Solarte in particular.

    -2008 Arod asks MLB for permission to use Clomed. Permission granted via medical reasons
    -2013. MLB shocked an appalled that Arod is still addicted to PEDs and suspends him for 212 games

    This should be the biggest story in sports right now, since the WC is over for the US team.

    Your timeline perfectly illustrates why it’s so ludicrous.

    You know, this is the kinda stuff that makes you wonder if Arod hadn’t picked a more competent legal team if he would have had a case in federal court. Everyone was saying Alex wouldn’t pursue it because then all of his skeletons would be out of the closet.. but I don’t think he ever had as much to lose as MLB. They’re an absolute joke. I’ve rarely been so disgusted by them as an institution.

    MLB granting multiple players therapeutic use exemptions for testosterone within the context of androgen deficiency. Unreal.

    MLB promoted PED’s use for years. “Chics dig the long ball”. AROD is a perfect example of the kind of ball player they wanted to create and promote. He did everything he was taught to do in the game when he entered it. He was hung out to dry by the very orginization that created him.

  99. Hankflorida July 2nd, 2014 at 12:54 pm

    Blake, we’ll see. Astros too are giving us a run for our money.

  114. charlestonchew July 2nd, 2014 at 1:02 pm

    The Yankees had every right to believe that this team would score far more runs than they have so far. Who here predicted McCann and Beltran would BOTH slug under .700 this late in the season? Ellsbury is about what we expected, though I think we all wanted a little bit more power from him. Kelly Johnson has been a bit of a disappointment, too, but that can be blamed more on the unexpected rise of Yangervis Solarte. Soriano, a revelation last year, has failed to put together anything but head-scratching atbats.

    Beltran seems as if he’s turned things around and looks legitimately like a threat at the plate. But McCann? What is going on there? It’s so hard to figure out and understand, but it’s clear that he’s confronting FYS (first-year syndrome)–and he’s losing, so far.

    Gardner might be the only true bright spot in the lineup right now, but don’t you think this has to change?

    These players are amongst the best, so I have to think this offense will pack a punch this year. There have been injury and fatigue concerns, sure, but these guys are all better players than we’ve seen thus far. Losing Robbie stung, but it surely isn’t the only reason the Yanks are struggling so far this year. The good news is that the division is tight and the All Star Break is coming up–a chance for real, measurable rest. CC and Pineda come back soon and trades are in the works.

    The Yanks have always been a 2nd half team.

    not really……I wanted him back for 1 year because that’s what he said he’d take at the time. I think he ended up signing for 2/20 or soemthing like that which would have been perfect for the Yankees. 189 kept them from doing it……instead we got Stewie for a season and then they spent 85 million on McCann (which admittedly I liked and still think will be ok)……

    What I remember about Martin is that he was a rally killer. He was hated by most on this blog. His defensive skills were exposed and ridiculed here constantly. Now revisionest historians wish he was still here. Some of them are the same people who wanted him gone.

    I definitely wanted them to upgrade off of Martin, because he wasn’t as good as Cashman/Girardi talked him up as. However, when the Yankees went immediately to Chris Stewart, et al, it became obvious that Martin should have been retained. He would have been retained if not for Plan 189.

    McCann should have been a god send, but he is proving to be worse than Russel Martin, while costing 4 x as much. Which is awful.

    And keep in mind a lot of ‘get rid of player X’ is based on upgrading at the position, not downgrading. If my choice was Russel Martin or a year of Chris Stewart I would have picked Russel Martin.

    “blake – You gotta wonder if MLB’s ruling on Arod, which was based on ‘continual prior use’ without positive tests, of course, had anything to do with their….. KNOWLEDGE THAT HE WAS USING PEDS?!”‘

    the only justifiable grounds for allowing those drugs to be taken would be as a replacement for a person who no longer makes testersterone…..now there could be other causes than PEDs for that but in this case you have to assume that either Arod took PEDS prior and his T levels were low because of it…..or that simply he wanted to keep taking the drugs and the doctor ok’d it…..either way MLB obviously knew and was complicit with him taking PEDs from 2003-2008 if this story is accurate.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each and every time a comment is added I get 4 emails using the exact same comment. Is there any way you are able to take away me from that service? Thanks!

    Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

    Redbud trees are best grown in USDA hardiness zones 4 9. They tolerate partial shade, but bear maximum blooms when grown in full sunlight. Redbud trees are also very hardy in terms of soil requirements; you can plant them in any type of soil, provided that it is not wet and swampy. In addition, the redbud plant can be propagated from seeds and it grows well in containers too. The only concern with this ornamental tree is fungal disease that often causes destructive damage.
