Chris Capuano failed to make it out of the sixth inning, allowing four runs in 5 2/3 innings, in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Capuano had allowed just one run through five innings, but he tired in the sixth and that's when the wheels came off. The lefty, overall, yielded five hits and walked four while striking out two. Capuano stands with a 4.67 ERA with a 1.44 WHIP and a 50/19 K/BB ratio. He'll make his final start of the season on Thursday at home against the Orioles.

Mark Teixeira exited Saturday's game because of renewed soreness in his troublesome right wrist.

It might be time for Teixeira to shut it down. Brendan Ryan replaced him at first base today. The Yankees could give Brian McCann some starts there during the final week, opening up time for Francisco Cervelli, John Ryan Murphy and Austin Romine behind the plate.

Mark Teixeira was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Blue Jays due to an apparent injury.

No word yet on what exactly happened, but he was pinch-hit for by Brendan Ryan. The Yankees should provide an update on his status shortly.

Jacoby Ellsbury (hamstring) indicated Saturday that he's hopeful he will be able to return before the conclusion of the 2014 season.

Ellsbury sustained a strained right hamstring in the late innings of Friday's contest against the Blue Jays. While Yankees manager Joe Girardi said there's a good chance Ellsbury will be shut down, if he progresses in the coming days he could return for a couple of games by the end of next week. Fantasy owners should have a contingency option in place in case he can't go though.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said late Friday that there is a "distinct possibility" that Jacoby Ellsbury (hamstring) will be shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season.

Ellsbury sustained a strained hamstring in Friday's win over the Blue Jays and is set to undergo an MRI on Saturday. With the Yankees playoff hopes all but finished, there's no reason to rush Ellsbury back and risk further aggravation.
Sep 20 - 8:45 AM

Hiroki Kuroda yielded three runs (two earned) over 6 2/3 innings in Friday's 5-4 win over the Blue Jays.

Kuroda surrendered a two-run homer to Edwin Encarnacion in the first inning, but bounced back from there to deliver a strong start. The veteran right-hander struck out seven and walked none in the victory and now sits at 11-7 with a 3.77 ERA on the year. He'll make his last start next week against the Orioles.
Sep 19 - 10:13 PM

Adam Warren notched a five-out save Friday against the Blue Jays.

It was his third save of the season. Warren entered the game with a runner on second and one out before striking out back-to-back batters to end the scoring threat. He then returned for the ninth to set down the side in order, including one strikeout. David Robertson had pitched the previous two days, but will likely be back in there if a save chance presents itself Saturday.
Sep 19 - 10:12 PM

Derek Jeter went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Jeter now has back-to-back multi-hit games. He hasn't done that since July 28-29. His final homestand is off to a nice start. The 40-year-old shortstop is batting .252/.301/.305 during his final season in the majors.
Sep 19 - 10:11 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury was removed from Friday's game against the Blue Jays with a strained right hamstring and is set to undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

Before departing, he was in the midst of a monster evening, going 2-for-3 with a double, homer and three RBI. The dynamic outfielder is hitting .271/.328/.419 with 16 homers, 70 RBI and 39 stolen bases on the year. More should be known about his status on Saturday.
Sep 19 - 9:28 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Carlos Beltran will be available off the bench Thursday.

Beltran had been away from the club after his wife had a miscarriage. "He will be here tonight," said Girardi. "He's not in the lineup but he's available. I've spoken to him every day, but he will be here."
Sep 18 - 11:09 PM

Shane Greene shut the Blue Jays out over 6 2/3 innings but was given a no-decision as the Yankees walked off winners on Thursday.

Greene lost his chance at the win when Shawn Kelley gave up a game-tying home run to Jose Bautista in the eighth. Greene scattered three hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. The right-hander has put together a good half-season in the Bronx, sitting on a 3.24 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 76/26 K/BB ratio. Greene starts next at home against the Orioles on Tuesday.
Sep 18 - 9:57 PM

Derek Jeter homered for the first time in 158 at-bats on Thursday as the Yankees downed the Blue Jays.

Jeter took R.A. Dickey out to left field for his fourth homer of the season and first since August 1. The soon-to-retire shortstop ended an 0-for-28 skid on Wednesday, so he's been in the business of tying up some loose ends before the season's out. Jeter owns a .250/.299/.303 with 41 RBI.
Sep 18 - 9:52 PM

Mark Teixeira (wrist) went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout Wednesday against the Rays.

Teixeira sat out Tuesday with discomfort in his surgically-repaired wrist. He told reporters that he's committed to playing through the pain through the end of the season and will then undergo a full examination to determine what sort of offseason treatment is necessary. The 34-year-old first baseman is batting .217/.320/.400 with 21 homers and 58 RBI in 116 games.

Carlos Beltran is away from the Yankees after his wife had a miscarriage.

Awful news. Earlier Wednesday Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Beltran was away due to a private family matter, but Beltran addressed the topic on his Facebook page. Our thoughts are with the Beltran family as they deal with this tragedy.
Sep 17 - 10:22 PM

David Robertson finished off the Rays in the ninth inning for his 37th save as the Yankees enjoyed a 3-2 win on Wednesday.

It was Robertson's first appearance since blowing Sunday's save attempt and his results were much better. The right-hander, who has been dealing with soreness in several areas, allowed a two-out single to Wil Myers, but got Nick Franklin to strike out to end the contest. Robertson is 37-for-41 in save chances with a 2.88 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and an 88/21 K/BB ratio.
