Yankees Highlights: A late rally saves the game

It wasn’t CC Sabathia’s night, but the Bombers still won.

The Yankees offense slept through the first half of this game. It looked like the Bombers might get no-hit, considering their struggles through the first four innings. Somehow, though, they found a way to not only tie the game in the seventh, but hit the game-winning run in the ninth. Here are a few highlights.

NYY News: The needle tears a hole

Stanton gets cortisone shot; Green sent down to RailRiders; Dellin Betances and free agency; Vlad Jr. to be called up on Friday

MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: You know, perhaps what the Yankees need is just to get out of the month of April. Pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and start all over again, as the famous song goes. April has, for lack of a better term, sucked. Injuries upon injuries upon injuries. Clint Frazier might be okay after the precautionary MRI, but Giancarlo Stanton needed a...

NYY vs. LAA: CC Sabathia vs. Cam Bedrosian

Will Sabathia make history tonight, and will the Yankees continue their winning ways?

Another day, another injured Yankee out of the lineup. Clint Frazier is off to get a “precautionary” MRI as he misses his second straight game. Still, the Yanks have won five in a row and have CC Sabathia on the mound as they look to take the series against the Angels.

Sabathia has been splendid since returning from the IL, and sits just six strikeouts shy of 3,000 for his career. He will be countered...

Yankees Injuries: Clint Frazier heads for MRI, Giancarlo Stanton suffers setback

Frazier will get his sprained ankle checked out, while Stanton now has a shoulder injury.

Call the Yankees snakebitten. That’s the only description fitting for the bad injury luck surrounding this team. On Tuesday evening, Bryan Hoch reported that Clint Frazier was sent for an MRI on his sprained ankle. Additionally, Giancarlo Stanton suffered a setback while rehabbing his biceps strain. The slugger received a cortisone shot in his shoulder, according to Meredith Marakovits.

Seriously, the Yankees should still be World Series favorites

But only if they start acting like the Yankees again

As if you needed a reminder, the 2019 Bronx Bombers have suffered a decade’s worth of injuries this month, and the resulting team bears little resemblance to the one that broke camp. No less than 13 players on their 25-man active roster played in the minor leagues last season — an almost certain recipe for disaster. Yet after winning seven of their last eight contests, this ragtag group of overachievers is now 13-10, good enough for...

Yankees option Chad Green, activate Gary Sanchez

The Yankees have announced a few notable roster tweaks. Struggling reliever Chad Green was optioned down to Triple-A to sort things out, with southpaw Stephen Tarpley recalled to take his active roster spot. And the club activated catcher Gary Sanchez while optioning down fellow backstop Kyle Higashioka. Green has simply not been himself this year. After two outstanding campaigns in the New York bullpen, he has been bombed for 14 earned runs on 15 hits (including four dingers) in his 7 2/3...

Yankees demote Chad Green, activate Gary Sanchez in flurry of moves

The Yankees sent down the struggling reliever, but will at least see the return of their star catcher.

The Yankees’ roster churn continues. They reshuffled their pitching staff yesterday, demoting Joe Harvey and adding Jonathan Loaisiga to the bullpen. Today, they’ve made a couple more moves, sending Kyle Higashioka to Triple-A, activating Gary Sanchez from the IL, and optioning Chad Green. As the corresponding move to the Green demotion, Stephen Tarpley has been recalled.

These Yankees simply won’t give up on the season

There’s a giant hole in the stern, but they just refuse to sink.

Looking at the team’s 2018 numbers, the Yankees have approximately 30 bWAR on the injured list. To put it in financial terms, about $81.9 million of their $203.9 million 2019 payroll is hurt. Take a look at the Opening Day roster and compare it to the one they’ve been trotting out this week. On Monday night, I turned on the game against the Angels for a little bit and I had no idea who was wearing the Yankees uniforms....

When it comes to trades, trust the Yankees

How do some of the Yankees’ 2017 trades look in hindsight?

With the Yankees facing a startling series of injuries, they’ve been forced to sign veteran players like Logan Morrison and Brad Miller as insurance policies on minor league deals. In an appearance on WFAN on Monday, Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman spoke about the difficulty in making trades for depth pieces before mid-season.

“You never want to get hurt earlier in the year because it’s harder to get stuff outside your...

Yankees survive a near-implosion in 7-5 win over Angels

Luke Voit and Mike Ford brought home the runs. Chad Green almost let them all back, but the lead was held

The RailRider-themed Yankees keep finding ways to win ballgames. They also keep finding ways to bring unnecessary amounts of tension into games. Chad Green had an adventure on the mound, and nearly blew the game single-handedly, but the Yankees managed to reel things in just in time to preserve a 7-5 victory.

Green entered the game in the seventh inning and managed to pick up a...

Yankees Highlights: Rookies carry team to another victory

The Yankees win, but fail to keep the drama to a minimum.

On the heels of Monday’s dramatic, lengthy game, it looked like the Yankees were going to cruise through Tuesday’s game. At least for the first seven innings. Then Chad Green happened. That guy is not right. Luckily, he didn’t cost them the game. Here are some of the highlights you may have missed if you went to bed early.

The Ringer | Michael Baumann: By now you know that the Yankees have experienced a ridiculous injury outbreak this season. A deeper dive, however, reveals the unprecedented degree to which the team has been hurt. In terms of WAR, the Bombers have the most talent on the injured list (at one time) of any team since 2002.

NYY vs. LAA: Domingo German vs. Chris Stratton

The West Coast trip continues with hopefully a nine-inning game.

If you survived yesterday’s marathon of a game, congratulations. If you didn’t, the Yankees are already 1-0 on this West Coast road trip, and are a season-high two games over .500. They also used quite a lot of relievers for a game where their starter went seven innings, so they’re going to need a quality start from the man on the mound, Domingo German. German was originally going to be pushed back until Wednesday after...
