Yankees' Girardi taking day-by-day approach with middle infield


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi isn't ready to commit to using a platoon situation at shortstop and second base, according to The Journal News.

With Brendan Ryan off the disabled list, the Yankees could use Ryan at shortstop and Jose Pirela at second base when a left-hander is on the mound, and start Didi Gregorius at shortstop and Stephen Drew at second base against righties.

“We’ll see,” Girardi said prior to Wednesday's game against the Nationals. “We’ll go day by day. That’s kind of how, to me, you have to approach the game. You have to see what’s going on, when guys necessarily need a day off. We’ll just go day by day.”

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"I've been working very hard. I've been waiting for this opportunity because I haven't been playing that much," Pirela said through a translator, per MLB.com. "But now that I have the opportunity, I'm really excited that I could contribute and I hope that God allows that I can continue contributing to the team."

Pirela tacked on the final run of the game with his seventh-inning solo home run. He had entered the game with no homers in 62 career at-bats. Pirela has hit .268/.268/.390 in 41 at-bats.

With Drew, Pirela struggling, Yankees are targeting A's 2B Zobrist


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2015) In search of some help at second base, the Yankees are interested in Athletics outfielder Ben Zobrist leading up to next month's trade deadline, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Pirela is hitting .237 (9 for 38) in his first 15 games this season. Drew is hitting .107 (3 for 28) with a double and an RBI over his last eight games played. He is slashing .165/.232/.305 this season.

Zobrist, 34, is in his first season with the A's, and is hitting .222 (18 for 81) with two homers and 14 RBI in 23 games this season.

Yankees' Jose Pirela starts over Stephen Drew again Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Yankees second baseman Stephen Drew is out of the lineup for a second straight day in favor of Jose Pirela, though manager Joe Girardi is not ready to name Pirela the full-time starter at the position, The Journal News reports.

"I told Stephen, continue to work," Girardi said. "He’s trying to work on some things offensively. I’ve always said, whenever you play it’s an opportunity to open someone’s eyes. Pedey, I thought swung the bat pretty good last night. I’m going to run him back out there. Stephen has played a lot and been a little banged up at times. I’ll give him another day and we’ll go from there."

Pirela is 7 for 33 after going 1 for 3 on Saturday. Drew has hit just .157/.225/.301 with five home runs and 15 RBI in 153 at-bats.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

This comes on the heels of manager Joe Girardi claiming that Drew would be the primary backup option to Chase Headley at the hot corner.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Yankees' Pirela could eat into playing time of Drew, Gregorius


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/6/2015) Yankees infielder Jose Pirela is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday, and that could be bad news for Stephen Drew and Didi Gregorius, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Pirela has been out since he suffered a concussion during spring training.

And, despite the fact that Pirela has just 24 big-league at-bats on his ledger (all coming at the end of the 2014 season), Heyman believes he could cut into the playing time of Drew and/or Gregorius, each of whom have gotten off to slow starts this year. 

Drew is hitting just .167 on the year and Gregorius has committed four errors at shortstop. 

Meanwhile, Pirela was hitting .579 (11 for 19) at Triple-A this season as part of his rehab. He had a home run and four doubles as well and could see time at both middle-infield positions for the Yankees.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Pirela played both second and third with Trenton, but the presence of Rob Refsnyder at second in Scranton could have Pirela focused on third base there.
