The Yankees kick off a nice long homestand

After an annoying 2-5 roadtrip, the Yankees are back at home tonight, starting a nine-game run in the Bronx. First up is an old NL rival, the Atlanta Braves, who are sort-of second in the NL East at 11-7.

Clint Frazier was called up this morning to fill in for the injured Giancarlo Stanton, and he finds himself in the dugout, though not in the lineup. Mike Ford gets the start at DH tonight. Meanwhile, Ronald...

Why the Yankees can be optimistic about James Paxton

While there is still reason for concern over the diminished fastball velocity, there was a lot to like about the lefty’s latest start

When the Yankees signed Gerrit Cole, it appeared they turned an area of weakness, their starting rotation, into a strength in one fell swoop. And even when Luis Severino went down with Tommy John surgery, the starting five still looked to be one of the most dangerous in the league. A quarter of the way into the season,...

Yankees vs. Braves: Series Preview

A two-time World Series matchup in the ‘90s, could this be a 2020 Fall Classic Preview?

Last week was...not ideal for the Yankees. They finally made up that cursed series with the Phillies, but only went 2-2. Then, Tropicana Field became a house of horrors as the Yankees lost three of four to Tampa Bay, including two in the Rays’ last licks. After losing five of their last six ballgames, the Yankees have come back down to earth and the...

Yankees recall prospect Clint Frazier

While hardly a surprising move under the circumstances, it’s a notable moment for team and player. Soon to turn 26, Frazier has long seemed ready for extended MLB action but has not yet received a full shot.

Things are looking up for James Paxton

The New York Yankees currently have a couple of question marks in the rotation. One of them is J.A. Happ, who has struggled in his two appearances so far in the season, mostly with command.

Giancarlo Stanton diagnosed with Grade 1 hamstring strain

With little reason to push Stanton now, the front-running Yanks already placed him on the injured list. He’ll no doubt be sidelined longer than the requisite 10 days.

New York Yankees call up former top prospect Clint Frazier

Doubles, defense, and demotion: On Miguel Andújar’s fall off the Yankees’ roster

Andujar’s nightmarish defense has limited the Yankees’ ability to find him consistent playing time.

Just two years ago, it seemed as though the Yankees had a brand new, homegrown core for the future of the left-side of their infield. Gleyber Torres was the top prospect, but 23-year-old Miguel Andújar finished second in the 2018 American League Rookie of the Year voting. His sequel was cut short as he tore the labrum in his throwing shoulder,...

Seven thoughts before the Yankees begin a nine-game homestand

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

An assortment of thoughts before the Yankees take on the Braves, including takes on Frazier, Stanton, and Paxton

I don’t know about you, but Yankee Stadium sure feels like a sight for sore eyes. The Bombers are fresh off a seven-game road trip where they went 2-5. Yuck. Later tonight, the Yankees welcome the Braves to the Bronx. It should be a fun time, as Atlanta has an 11-7 record, and even without Ozzie Albies, and Mike Soroka, they have plenty of fun,...
