Derek Jeter Passes Wagner for Sixth on All-Time Hits List

Derek Jeter Passes Wagner for Sixth on All-Time Hits List

Elsa/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Derek Jeter passed the only shortstop remaining on the all-time hits list on Saturday in the bottom of the sixth inning with a base hit off Indians pitcher Corey Kluber.

Jeter is set to retire at the end of the season and Honus Wagner was the last person he could probably reach when the season started.

“Honus Wanger, he is the last one on the list who has played shortstop,” Jeter said. “That one hits home a little bit. Anytime you pass guys that have had the careers that they’ve had, it is kind of overwhelming.”

The 40-year-old shortstop collected his 3,431 hit off of Kluber, but the Indians shut out the Yankees, 3-0.

Tris Speaker, who sits at No. 5 on the all-time hits list, has 3,514 hits.

Pitcher Michael Pineda Set to Start on Wednesday for Yankees

Pitcher Michael Pineda Set to Start on Wednesday for Yankees

Rob Carr/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — After a lengthy absence from the team, starting pitcher Michael Pineda is set to start for the New York Yankees on Wednesday against Baltimore Orioles.

Pineda has been out of action since late April following a suspension as well as shoulder and back issues.

The 25-year-old Pineda has been dominant in his rehab starts, and the team has determined he is ready to rejoin the starting rotation.

The Yankees acquired Pineda in a trade with the Seattle Mariners back in 2012, but due to various injuries, was unable to make his team debut till this season.

Before getting hurt, Pineda was finally showing Yankee fans why he was worth the wait. In four starts, Pineda went 2-2 with a 1.83 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP.

His return could not have come at a better time for the Bronx Bombers. With injuries to Ivan Nova, C.C. Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka, and others, the Yankees pitching depth has taken a serious hit this season, yet they are still in the thick of the American League Wild Card race.

Yankees’ Derek Jeter Moves Into Tie for 6th on All-Time Hits List

Robert Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The milestones continue to pile up for Derek Jeter. On Friday night, the New York Yaknees shortstop went 1-for-4 and in the process moved into a tie for sixth on the all-time hit list.

Jeter tied Honus Wagner for sixth place on the career list with his 3,430th hit in the first inning.

This will be the final season for the 40-year-old Jeter, his 20th with the Yankees. Among his many career accomplishments, Jeter keeps climbing up the hits list.

Jeter may have a hard time moving up to the fifth spot, as he trails Tris Speaker by 84 hits.

“Big names. I mean really big names,” manager Joe Girardi said. “It’s been fun to watch him go through it this season.”

Even more important for the Yankees was Jeter’s hit helped lead the team to a 10-6 win over the New York Yankees. Despite dealing with a slew of injuries, the Yankees still find themselves in the Wild Card hunt in the American League.

They trail the Kansas City Royals by just .5 games for the final Wild Card spot heading into Saturday.

Sabathia to Have Season-Ending Surgery

Sabathia to Have Season-Ending Surgery

Hannah Foslien/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The injury news continues to get worse for the New York Yankees. General Manager Brian Cashman announced on Friday that the pitcher is set to have season-ending surgery on his right knee.

The southpaw will have arthroscopic debridement surgery in hopes of returning for the 2015 season. The procedure is an alternative to microfracture surgery, but could still be in play if the first surgery does not go as planned. 

“He tried the rehab side of it, and obviously that didn’t work,” Cashman said of the decision for Sabathia to go under the knife. “If he had three different options, that was the least. Now, we are on the middle side of this thing, the cleanup of the knee, and hopefully that is good enough.”

Sabathia is one of four starting pitchers the Yankees have lost to injury in 2014 since Opening Day. Ivan Nova is already out for the year with Tohmmy John surgery, while Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda are hopeful to return. Sabathia 304 with a 5.28 earned run average at the time of his injury.

Ruth’s 1918 Red Sox Contract Sells For One Million Dollars

Ruth’s 1918 Red Sox Contract Sells For One Million Dollars

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — At an auction in Baltimore, Md., Babe Ruth’s 1918 contract with the Boston Red Sox was sold for $1.02 million on Saturday night. When it was originally sold almost 100 years ago, the deal was worth just $5,000.

The contract was signed by American League president Ban Johnson, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee, and Ruth himself. The price tag eclipsed the record for a bidding price of a sports contract, surpassing the 1919 document that sent Ruth to the New York Yankees, which sold for $996,000 back in 2005.

The item was part of a collection of Ruth memorabilia, designed to honor the 100th anniversary of his professional debut. Other items included a bat from early in his career and a signed ball, both of which fetched more than $95,000. One of the more intriguing items, the very first home run ball Ruth ever hit at Yankee Stadium, did not sell. The ball was collected by a construction worker when Ruth was called over to test out the dimensions of the new ballpark in February of 1923.

Other items that were up for auction on Saturday included ticket stubs from the clinching game of each of New York’s 27 championship years ($58,000) and a Super Bowl VIII ring from the 1972 Miami Dolphins perfect season ($19,000).

Tanaka Apologies to Fans for Injury

Tanaka Apologies to Fans for Injury

Hannah Foslien/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — A day after being diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his pitching arm, Masahiro Tanaka issued an apology to both the New York Yankees and their fans on Friday. Tanaka was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday before the official determination was made.

“I give everything I have every time I take the ball. With that, I also know that there will always be a risk of injury when playing this game that I love,” said Tanaka. “Right now I feel that the most important thing for me is to keep my head up, remain focused on the task at hand and devote all my energy into healing the injury in order to come back strong.”

Yankees owner Brian Cashman said the righty could return in as little as six weeks but also acknowledged the possibility of Tommy John surgery. Tanaka saw three separate doctors on Thursday, including head team physician, Dr. Christopher S. Ahmad, and each agreed on a timetable of six weeks.

Tanaka is currently 12-4 on the year with a 2.51 earned run average and was recently voted to the Major League All-Star Game. He now joins a list of ever growing Yankees on the DL, including three other starting pitchers.
