YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Righty has been sidelined since April. It's been a wasted 2016 season Yankees' No. 1 pitching prospect James Kaprielian, who might have jumped all the way from high-A Tampa to the majors by now if not for his early season elbow flexor strain. The latest on Kaprielian isn't much different from a month ago: The 22-year-old right-hander still is...

Post-Deadline Bullpen Almost Costs Yankees In KC

All I can say is, it wasn’t me this time. Given my ability to seemingly jinx the Yankees with the most innocuous of tweets during rain delays, I kept my keyboard quiet during the lengthy one in Tuesday night’s game, a 5-4 extra innings win for the Yankees. Nevertheless, the rain delay was long enough that Masahiro Tanaka, who suffered a bit from Pineda-itis in his vacillation...

The Pros and Cons of Putting Luis Severino in the Bullpen

Last night, in preparation for a call-up later this week, the Yankees had right-hander Luis Severino throw 2.1 innings in relief for Triple-A Scranton. He allowed two hits and struck out five, so everything went well. Rosters expand on Thursday and Severino will apparently be among the first wave of call-ups. The Yankees essentially have three options with Severino for the final...

Yankees need more grind-out wins like these to make playoffs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The final out came at 12:22 a.m. local time, which is probably long after you went to bed, long after most of the folks who had populated Kauffman Stadium five hours earlier had headed home.

Yankees can’t get enough of Tim Tebow baseball player

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As Mark Teixeira’s career winds down, he’s keeping an eye on how Tim Tebow’s attempt at baseball goes.

That’s exciting,” said...

Game 128 Recap: Wild Card Dreamin’

If we hadn’t yet run out of words to describe Gary Sanchez, Saturday’s performance ought to do it. Sanchez continued his torrid pace with yet another home run, his 11th in 21 games, and once again flashed his cannon arm behind the plate to help the Yankees to a 13-5 win over the Orioles. The win moves the Yankees a mind-boggling 2.5 games out of the American League wild card...

Tyler Clippard on Beating BABIP and the Limits of FIP

Tyler Clippard has always been a smart pitcher. That’s evident from his erudition as well as his results. Based on my experience, the 31-year-old reliever is equally adept at discussing his craft and flummoxing opposing hitters with solid-but-unspectacular stuff. As noted in this past Sunday’s Notes column, Clippard has recorded the lowest BABIP against (.237) of any pitcher...
