by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) Yankees third baseman Chase Headley is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game. 

Headley has started the last 33 games at the hot corner. He's missing his first start since May 13.

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.”


Yankees INF Brendan Ryan activated from DL, starting Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/10/2015) Yankees infielder Brendan Ryan has been activated off the 60-day disabled list and is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's series-finale against the Nationals. Ryan has missed the entire season with calf and hamstring injuries.

"I'm so glad to be out of the entire state of Florida," he said, per NJ.com. "It was so freaking hot. Before I left, they said it was one of the hottest Mays on record. Playing in Dunedin, it's 100 degrees, 1,000-percent humidity. I literally could not drink more liquid."

Ryan is batting ninth and starting at shortstop, spelling Didi Gregorius on Tuesday. In 2014, Ryan played all over the infield, but struggled offensively with a .167 batting average in 114 at-bats.

To clear room on the 25-man roster, the Yankees optioned outfielder Ramon Flores to Triple-A Scranton, the team announced.


Yankees 2B Brendan Ryan nearing return


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/8/2015) Yankees second baseman Brendan Ryan, who has been hobbled by a variety of injuries this season, is getting close to rejoining the team, per NJ.com.

Ryan has been sidelined with hamstring and calf injuries, but has been making his way through the Yankees farm system on rehab assignments. Over 20 at-bats at three different levels, Ryan is hitting .250 with two doubles. 

"He's played some third. We'll have him play some second. He's getting pretty close, I would think," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. 

With Stephen Drew continuing to struggle, Ryan may be able to get some at-bats upon his return. 


Yankees INF Brendan Ryan could be back with club soon


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Ryan has been on the disabled list with a right calf strain. The Yankees will weigh their options now that their series with the Angels has finished. 

"He played again (Saturday), playing shortstop in (Double-A) Trenton," Girardi said. "He's played some third. We'll have him play some second. He's getting pretty close, I would think."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Ryan is on the 60-day disabled list with a calf injury. He has yet to play for the Yankees this season.

"I think it's important that he plays back-to-back days, or maybe three days in a row," manager Joe Girardi said, per MLB.com. "The big thing is that he feels good and comfortable and like he's ready to contribute. He's had some at-bats, but they've been really spread out because it's been on, off, on, off. We need him to get some consistent at-bats."


Yankees INF Brendan Ryan moves his rehab to Triple-A


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Yankees infielder Brendan Ryan will continue his rehab assignment, as he was transferred from Class A Tampa to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, according to the Journal News.

Yankees' Brendan Ryan doubles in Class A rehab debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Ryan had one of just three hits for the Tampa Yankees, who lost the game 9-0 to Dunedin. He's on the 60-day disabled list while recovering from a calf injury and has yet to play this season.

"Obviously he’s got to get some at-bats because he really hasn’t had a spring training," manager Joe Girardi said, per LoHud.com. "I’m not sure what day he’s eligible to come off, but he’s going to need some at-bats, be able to play a couple days in row, lengthy games, because you never know when you’ll be pressed into action, for three or four days."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
