New York Yankee News: Jeter, Hughes and a Debut

New, comments

Derek Jeter is on the DL, and it's the right move.

Remember last year when Jimmy Rollins hit the DL with a calf injury? He rushed back, and 3 days later reinjured the calf.

In the meantime, we'll see if Ramiro Pena's slick glove and dead bat can cover for the Captain.

Jeter is the tenth Yankee on the DL, joining Phil Hughes, Bartolo Colon, Joba Chamberlain, Eric Chavez, and a bunch of left handed relievers.

Hughes:

Hughes said Tuesday there were three criteria under which he would evaluate himself -- ability to throw strikes, physical well-being and velocity -- and labeled the outing a success.

He topped the radar gun at 93 mph, and hovered in the low-90s throughout his outing.

Hughes will start Sunday for Staten Island. It'll be one of the main topics of the day, so check back with us often.

If you're a Paul McCartney fan, he's added another concert to his Yankee Stadium Debut in July.

I hate this. The boxing match last year damaged the field pretty badly, and this figures to be as bad or worse. Remember when the Dropkick Murphy's performed in season at Fenway and left a deadspot that lasted into the playoffs? The offseason is one thing, but during the season, only baseball should happen at Yankee Stadium.
