Steinbrenner: ‘I get hammered every year about something’
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Hal Steinbrenner had heard the constant criticism in New York: Why haven't the Yankees tried to sign Bryce Harper or Manny Machado?
"I get hammered every year about something," the New York owner said Thursday. "If you don't win the World Series, that's perfectly justifiable."
Speaking at the owners' meetings, Steinbrenner would not rule out more moves before opening day but sounded as if a deal for a high-priced free agent is unlikely.
Gardner gets $7.5M, 1-year deal from Yanks, who save $3M
NEW YORK (AP) — Brett Gardner is staying with the New York Yankees at a lower salary.
The 35-year-old outfielder agreed Wednesday to a $7.5 million, one-year contract after New York declined his $12.5 million option.
Gardner, New York's longest-tenured player, gets a $2 million buyout triggered by the team's decision to decline the option, meaning he will receive $9.5 million total — a $3 million savings for the team under the option price.
Out at home: Yankees eliminated by rival Red Sox in ALDS
NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees couldn't wait to get back home.
Now, that's exactly where they're staying.
CC Sabathia became the latest pitcher to put New York in an early hole as rookie manager Aaron Boone again stuck with his starter too long, and the Yankees fell just short of extending their season Tuesday night with a 4-3 loss to the rival Boston Red Sox in Game 4 of their AL Division Series.
Moreland out for Red Sox, Hicks for Yanks in Game 3 of ALDS
NEW YORK (AP) — Boston Red Sox first baseman Mitch Moreland was out of the lineup for Game 3 of the AL Division Series against the New York Yankees.
Moreland, a left-handed hitter with a good glove, was removed from Game 2 after he hurt his right hamstring running the bases. Right-handed hitter Steve Pearce was set to start at first base Monday night at Yankee Stadium against righty Luis Severino.
"Mitch is available, but he's not 100 percent," manager Alex Cora said.
Injured Yankees CF Hicks available for Game 2
BOSTON (AP) — New York Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks was not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the AL Division Series against Boston but available if needed.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone says Hicks had an MRI that didn't show any damage to his right hamstring, an injury that caused Hicks to leave Friday night's game in the fourth inning. Boone says Hicks is available to pinch hit on Saturday night, but Boone prefers to rest him until Game 3 in New York on Monday night.
Yanks CF Aaron Hicks leaves ALDS opener with tight hamstring
BOSTON (AP) — Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks left Game 1 of the AL Division Series against the Boston Red Sox with tightness in his right hamstring Friday night.
Hicks will be examined further Saturday and have an MRI.
"He felt like it might have been cramping, so we'll just have to see," New York manager Aaron Boone said after his team's 5-4 loss. "Hopefully we'll have a clearer picture tomorrow when he gets up and we get some pictures, too."

Aaron Hicks hurts hamstring as Yankees beat Rays 4-1
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The players who combined for the run that clinched the New York Yankees' postseason berth are both hurt.
Aaron Hicks injured his left hamstring running up the first-base line in the Yankees' 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night, another concern for New York heading into next week's AL wild-card game.
Yankees CF Aaron Hicks injures left hamstring
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks left Monday night's game at Tampa Bay with left hamstring tightness.
Hicks appeared to get hurt in the third inning while running to first base on a grounder to shortstop, successfully beating a relay throw and avoiding a double play. He was replaced by Brett Gardner in the middle of the fourth.
BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox manager Alex Cora was ejected one pitch into the bottom of the first inning for arguing after an inside pitch to Mookie Betts.
Both benches were warned when Luis Severino threw a fastball high and inside to Betts on his first pitch. In the top of the first, New York leadoff batter Brett Gardner was hit by a pitch from Boston's Rick Porcello and took a moment to stare down the right-hander on his way to first base. There was no warning issued.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Sergio Romo got to view the game from the perspective of Brooks Robinson, Mike Schmidt and Wade Boggs. And he got a save, too.
Romo relieved in the eighth inning, shifted to third base when Jonny Venters replaced him in the ninth and then struck out Brett Gardner to end the game with two on and give the Tampa Bay Rays a 3-2 win over the New York Yankees on Wednesday.
