Change of Plans: A-Rod to begin rehab assignment tonight, not rejoin Yankees

Turns out Alex Rodriguez will not rejoin the Yankees tonight after all. Earlier this morning the team announced A-Rod will play in a minor league rehab game with Double-A Trenton tonight. The Yankees had originally planned to activate him from the DL with no minor league time. “We are not going to waste his at-bats in Triple-A,” said Joe Girardi to George King over the weekend...

The New York Yankees future is bright

At the beginning of the season, the New York Yankees seemed to be a team loaded with old washed-up players. They had just traded some of their most promising prospects to acquire Aroldis Chapman but had very little chance of going very far. Then, just a few weeks into the seasons, an array of injuries opened the door for some of the younger Yankees to move up and fill vacant spots...

Let's Be Honest....

The Yankees fashioned their longest, and best, win streak of the season on the road.Five victories in a row have brought us within 1 game of what?  A .500 season. And I understand that you can't make an assault on the league leaders until you at least get even in wins and losses.  In the old days, we used to watch the Yankees until they were 10 games over .500, then 15, etc. as...

Thoughts following Monday’s off-day

The Yankees start up another 20 games in 20 days stretch today — it was supposed to be 19 games in 20 days, but the makeup game of the rainout in Detroit wiped away the off-day — and 12 of their next 13 games are against AL East rivals. Pretty important stretch of the season coming up, I’d say. Here are some thoughts. 1. Gosh the offense looks so much better when Jacoby Ellsbury...

Exclusive Prospect Interview: SS Jorge Mateo – Yankees

The New York Yankees have always been known to “buy players”, in other words the Yankees have never been afraid to jump in and make major splashes in regards to free agent spending. However, the Yankees did have major success in the farm system in the mid 1990s era. They built around the core 4– Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera and Jorge Posada. Had Bernie Williams...

Mark Teixeira Needs to Turn it Around

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is notorious for his slow starts during a season, but his 2016 slump is his worst to date. Through May 23rd, the switch hitter is batting a dismal .193, with only three home runs and 12 RBIs. Teixeira has been reaching base via walk, but that only brings his on-base percentage to .295. The Yankees have been playing better baseball as of late, but...

Are the New York Yankees Surging Back on Track?

The New York Yankees now sit one game under .500 after going 13-6 after an 8-16 start to the season. The Yankees have a huge opportunity ahead of them as they only sit 5 1/2 games back of first place and 12 of their next 13 games are against AL East opponents. Brian McCann stresses patience with the season as the Yankees have plenty of time to make up lost ground. “It’s a long...

Yankees Pen: Saving Games and Taking Names

The baseball world can’t seem to lock down a true nickname for the New York Yankees’ trio of relief pitchers, Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller, and Aroldis Chapman, but luckily the three have had no problem locking down games for the Bronx Bombers. Whether you call them “No Runs-DMC” or “Done BMC,” or something else entirely, one thing is clear, the Yankees are getting...

The new version of Ivan Nova

When the season began, Ivan Nova had been sequestered in the bullpen for the first time in his life. A shaky first year back from Tommy John surgery had fostered a lack of trust in him. Spring Training saw the beginning of a battle between him and CC Sabathia for the fifth spot in the starting rotation, and Sabathia’s veteran status won out. Sabathia found his way onto the disabled...

You’re not on the Mark, Teixeira

New York Yankees owner shows support for Joe Girardi

Hal Steinbrenner is not his father. While the late George Steinbrenner generally acted rashly to stretches of bad baseball and was not afraid to fire — or certainly put pressure — on his managers, Hal is looking towards the guys who play. Steinbrenner recently backed his manager while simultaneously putting pressure on the players. “The coaches are doing a good job,...
