NYY 14, MIN 1: The power bats deliver behind Tanaka

It was a home-run derby in the Bronx as Masahiro Tanaka returned to form.

Following a pair of disappointing outings, Masahiro Tanaka returned to ace form on David Wells Bobblehead Night. Miguel Andujar, Gary Sanchez, Giancarlo Stanton, Tyler Austin, and Didi Gregorius powered the Bombers to a 14-1 victory over Minnesota at Yankee Stadium. Gleyber Torres got his first major league hit as the Yankees pushed their winning streak to a season-high three games.

Rookie Miguel Andujar off to historic start for Yankees

New York Yankees rookie Miguel Andujar is off to a great start in his career and putting himself in some excellent company.Andujar was called up by the Yankees on April 1 and didn’t get his first hit until April 7. He was batting just .133 through April 12, but everything began to turn after his start in Detroit on April 13.Andujar went 2-for-4 in that game with a double and triple. Since then he’s gone on a 7-game hitting streak, with at least two hits in six of the seven games. As of...

New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Jake Odorizzi

Tanaka seeks to rebound tonight and help the Yankees push their winning streak to a season-high three games.

After taking three of four from Toronto over the weekend, the Bombers begin a new four-game set tonight against the Twins in Yankee Stadium. New York looks to push its winning streak to a season-high three games. Minnesota, meanwhile, is reeling after being swept by the Orioles in a three-game weekend series in Baltimore. Masahiro Tanaka (2-2, 6.45 ERA) toes the slab for the Yankees,...

New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins: Series Preview

Can the Yankees continue their recent run of success against the Twins?

After taking three of four against the Blue Jays, the Yankees get to stay in New York for another home series. This time, it’s the Twins coming to Yankee Stadium for a four-game set.

The last time they met in Yankee Stadium was during last year’s AL Wild Card game, which the Yankees won. Earlier in the season, the Yankees also swept the Twins during a series in the Bronx. In total, the Twins have won just one game in...

Didi Gregorius is the ideal cleanup hitter for the Yankees

Sir Didi doesn’t fit the stereotype, but he’s the perfect man for the job on this team.

I’ve seen some prolific cleanup hitters in my time. Reggie Jackson, Willie Stargell, Mike Schmidt, Harmon Killebrew, and Jim Thome come to mind first. None hit better than .282 lifetime. Each tallied high strikeout and home run totals. Each man was enshrined in baseball’s Hall of Fame following a remarkable career.

Didi Gregorius doesn’t fit the stereotype. He isn’t a stocky power hitter with...

What are the odds that the Yankees sign Clayton Kershaw?

Jon Heyman thinks there’s a chance.

Spring weather has finally arrived in New York, and the Yankees are starting to win. That leaves us only one thing to do: pour over free agent rumors! In a way too early look at next offseason, Jon Heyman connected the Yankees to Clayton Kershaw, the crown jewel pitcher of the 2018 - 2019 class. We know this involves an opt-out clause, but barring catastrophic injury he will do just that.

While the Bombers don’t have the same advantage as the Dodgers...

How do you feel about the Yankees’ decision to call up Gleyber Torres?

Was calling up Gleyber Torres now the right decision?

Just before the weekend started, I asked whether the Yankees should hold off on calling up Gleyber Torres. While at the beginning of the season I couldn’t wait for Torres to be called up, I questioned the timing of the move. The Yankees had just been embarrassed at the hands of the Marlins which perfectly encapsulated how frustrating the start of the 2018 season had been for the Yankees.

After that game, Brian Cashman was asked if the...

What can the Yankees do to improve right now?

Submit your answer in the FanPost section for the chance to see your article featured on the front page.

Last week I asked Pinstripe Alley readers if it was time to adjust our expectations for this Yankees squad. Although the team has stumbled early, one Yankees fan encouraged everyone to keep the faith. Another reader revealed that they entered the season with low expectations, while a third pointed out some reasons to remain optimistic. The good news is that the team played better over the...

NYY news: All good in the Gleyberhood

Teammates excited about Torres; Boone discusses controversial replay; Severino shows why he’s the ace; Stanton’s eventful day in left; All under-30 team; Hale called up; Frazier could play in games soon

New York Post | Dan Martin: The crowd at Yankee Stadium was loud when Gleyber Torres’ name was called. It’s not just the fans that are excited about Torres, his teammates are as well. Giancarlo Stanton spoke highly of Torres and his swing and said he reminded him of Javier Baez’s. Neil...

The New York Yankees need Masahiro Tanaka

Masahiro Tanaka was brought over from Japan by the Yankees  in 2014 with the idea that he would become their next ace. Tanaka more or less has been a productive major league pitcher. His rookie ERA of 2.77 was his lowest as a pro in the states, but he had a consistently respectable career in pinstripes until a bit of a setback in 2016 with a 4.74 ERA. Since last season, Tanaka has struggled with command and giving up the long ball, giving up a combined 40 total home runs since the beginning...

Yankees history: The 1941 Yankees’ crazy run

Maybe calm down on the hyperbole about this year’s bad start.

The Yankees’ start to this season has been understandably frustrating to fans. It’s certainly got some wondering if they’re a playoff team, never mind a contender for anything more. It’s always possible that’s the case. This start could torpedo any chances they have at making a run. History, however, has shown that it could ultimately mean nothing.

The 1941 Yankees were coming off a third-place finish in the American...

Yankees 5, Blue Jays 1: Andujar, Severino star as Gleyber Torres debuts

Things didn’t go smoothly for the top prospect in his first game, but the Yankees still prevailed to take three of four from Toronto.

It seems like the Yankees have entered a bunch of “New Eras” lately. They entered new eras after Mariano Rivera and then Derek Jeter retired. They entered a new era when they rebuilt at the 2016 trade deadline, and yet another when Aaron Judge became the face of the franchise, and perhaps baseball, last season.

Today was billed as the beginning of the...

Tracking the Yankees’ change in pitching philosophy

The pitching staff has taken “McCullersing” to an extreme.

There’s a phrase, made popular in recent years by this Nature article, that scientific knowledge (the amount of total citations referenced is their exact metric) doubles every nine years or so. This follows an exponential trend where n references are created in any year, which increases in the following year, using the n number of references in the previous year(s) to create more references. This may be a very analytical way to...

Mark Teixeira has funny reaction to Yankees giving Gleyber Torres his number

Mark Teixeira closed out his illustrious career in 2016, his final season with the New York Yankees, but he still plays attention to the team.When the Yankees opted to give top prospect Gleyber Torres Teixeira’s old No. 25, the former first baseman didn’t mind. In fact, if Torres plays well, he sees a huge benefit for himself personally. That’s the great advantage of playing for the Yankees — their famous jerseys don’t feature names on the back, so Teixeira really will be able to...
