NYY news: A whole lot of dumb

Sanchez to the DL; Andujar flashing defense; Frazier robbed of HR; Tanaka throws BP; Sabathia start pushed to Friday

MLB.com | J. Scott Butherus: What a terrible weekend. The Yankees got swept by the Rays because sometimes baseball is dumb. The losses weren’t even the worst part of it, though, sometimes these things happen. The worst was that Gary Sanchez left yesterday’s loss in the 10th inning with a hip/groin injury after trying to run out a groundball double play. I never want to hear...

New York Yankees trade rumors: Should they reach for Brad Hand?

On Sunday, the Yankees got swept by the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. They lost the third game on a walk-off home run by Jake Bauers on Chasen Shreve‘s first pitch of the bottom of the 12th inning. With that blown save, Chasen Shreve has continued his streak of being just plain bad. Given he is the only left-handed reliever in the Yankees’ bullpen other than their closer, Aroldis Chapman, it is becoming apparent that not only do the Yankees need to add a starter, but they need to...

How Yankees' Clint Frazier has been mentored by Brett Gardner

Yankees veteran's Brett Gardner's impact has been "huge" on highly touted outfielder Clint Frazier. Watch video ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Clint Frazier stood next to Brett Gardner in left field Saturday and they talked. Frazier didn't get a chance to play in the weekend series against the Rays. Still, the highly regarded young outfielder seized chance after chance to soak up knowledge from Gardner, whom he called the Yankees' captain last...

Bullpen of the Week: Yankees

From top to bottom, the Yankees' bullpen is the most fearsome in baseball, and their biggest arms have been on top of their game of late. Yankees relievers basically made two bad pitches all week -- and all the dominant ones in between were enough to earn them MLB Bullpen of the Week presented by The Hartford honors for the period of June 18-24.

Yankees' Gary Sanchez (likely) to DL | What it means

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez strained his groin and hip abductor running to first base in a 7-6, extra-innings loss to the Rays on Sunday. Watch video ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Looks like the Yankees will be without catcher Gary Sanchez for a while.

Yankees 6, Rays 7: Sanchez exits as Yanks swept in a walk-off

The Yankees’ offense woke up, but it wasn’t enough in a costly, twelve-inning loss in Tampa Bay.

The Yankees’ offense has been a little quiet lately, and there’s been some (silly) conversation about whether they rely too heavily on the home run. Today, the offense finally woke up a bit, but it wasn’t enough. They rallied repeatedly, and the bullpen was outstanding in relief an ineffective Domingo German. In the end, they left Tampa Bay after 12 innings, having been swept in costly...

Gary Sanchez exits Sunday’s game with apparent groin injury

Well this is bad. Gary Sanchez exited Sunday’s game with what sure looked like a groin injury in the tenth inning. He hit the first base bag running out a double play grounder and grabbed at his groin. He’s had calf problems earlier this season as well, so we’ll see what’s up. The Yankees have not yet announced an update on Gary. Sanchez has not had a Gary Sanchez season so far this year — he’s hitting .190/.291/.433 (97 wRC+) through 265 plate appearances — but he leads all...

Gary Sanchez exits Yankees game with leg injury

The Yankee catcher pulled up lame after trying to beat out a double play

Tropicana Field is terrible.

In the top of the tenth today, while trying to beat out a double play, Yankee catcher Gary Sanchez pulled something in his right leg. He was forced to leave the game and his status at this time is unclear.

Sanchez grabbed at his right thigh after crossing first, suggesting it may be a groin pull or something similar. He has battled calf soreness already this year, but he didn’t look to...

The good and bad from Jonathan Loaisiga’s first two starts

The Yankees aggressively promoted the 23-year-old starter, and he’s flashed some real promise in just two outings.

At first blush, the Yankees’ decision to promote Jonathan Loaisiga appeared to be an odd one. The 23-year-old had made only six starts above A-Ball. Thanks to a variety of injuries, Loaisiga made just a dozen starts across 2016 and 2017. The Yankees were calling on a rookie with an incredibly limited track record to make starts in a fierce playoff race.

I played a bit of...

Clint Frazier has become more patient which is good for the Yankees

Red Thunder is learning to be more disciplined at the plate.

Clint Frazier has been having a very good 2018. He has also unfortunately been overshadowed by fellow youngsters Gleyber Torres, and Miguel Andujar. You could even make a case for 2018 being Frazier’s best year as a professional.

His .312/.389/.558 triple-slash in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre is far and away the best of his career. What’s even better is that in sporadic major league at-bats, he’s been just as good. Frazier had an...

The Yankees should call up Cody Carroll

Carroll has done nothing but dominate in Triple-A.

Much praise has been given to the Yankees’ lineup, and deservedly so. Their pitching corps, however, has also done exceedingly well this season. According to fWAR, the Yankees’ pitching staff has generated the second-most value in the major leagues, trailing only the Astros and their embarrassment of riches.

That said, this shouldn’t be taken as evidence that the Yankees don’t need pitching help. In fact, it should be considered a...
