New York Yankees News and Notes

Good morning, Pinstripe Alley readers. Here's your usual morning news for Wednesday, April 18th.

  • In case you missed last night's game, the Yankees topped the Twins, 8-3, behind CC Sabathia's 7 1/3 strong innings. Brett Gardner paved the way for the offense by reaching base all four times he came to the plate (two doubles, two walks) and stealing a base.
  • The Yankees released a picture of the modernized throwback jerseys they will wear against the Red Sox for the Centennial Game. I don't recall the last time the Yankees wore a throwback jersey, so to see it happen is pretty cool.
  • Curtis Granderson again paid tribute to Brian Bluhm, one of the victims of the Virginia Tech shooting, by wearing wristbands and cleats with Bluhm's name stitched on them during Tuesday night's game. It was the third consecutive year he has paid tribute to the former Minor League blogger. Little things like this help me realize that there are some truly great people in the sport, and I'm happy to have one on the team I root for.
  • After his next bullpen session, the Yankees will determine if Michael Pineda is ready to throw a rehab start. He'll throw in a few days, and if all goes well, he could be making a rehab start by the end of the weekend or early next week.
  • Joe Pawlikowski of River Ave. Blues shared some Derek Jeter facts, some of which are very encouraging.
  • Finally, Eric Schultz checked in on some of the system's top prospects.
