No vote of confidence from Yankees on Didi Gregorius


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) In his career, Didi Gregorius has hit 34 points lower against left-handed pitchers, but the Yankees were confident he'd be able to hit southpaws well enough to be an every-day player.

Gregorius is hitting .300 this spring. Brendan Ryan is hitting .200. Over his career, Ryan hits 15 points higher against southpaws than against right-handers.

"You don't ever lock yourself in and say, this is exactly what it's going to be, but when we came to spring training, we were pretty sure - excluding the second catcher - who the 13 guys were going to be," manager Joe Girardi said.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Yankees infielder Brendan Ryan is making progress in his recovery from a strained back muscle, he told MLB.com Saturday.

"It's no big deal," Ryan said. "I've had a lot more serious issues in my back before. I wasn't too concerned. It being February, let's just make sure."

Ryan is taking treatment and expects to resume baseball activities next week.

"I don't know what they're going to allow me to do," Ryan said. "If not batting practice, maybe some baseball stuff. I imagine they might baby-step me into it. We always want to jump right back into it. I'd imagine some dry swings or hit off the tee. We'll see.

"I don't want to speak for them. That's how I get in trouble."

Yankees' Brendan Ryan hoping for more playing time


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Yankees infielder Brendan Ryan is hoping for more playing time in 2015, according to MLB.com.

Ryan hit just .167 last season, but said numbers can be deceiving. "My average was terrible, but I felt like I hit the ball way better than my average showed," Ryan said. "I just didn't have much love. When you don't have a whole lot of love with few at-bats, things get blown out of proportion."

Ryan said he wants to win games, and hopes that he can earn more playing time if he's looking better at the plate, particularly against left-handers. "If I'm getting it done and helping us win, hopefully I'll get to play a little more," he said. 

Ryan hit .167 over 114 at-bats last year.
