Yankees hypothetical trade proposal for star SS Trevor Story will blow your mind

The New York Yankees have an issue at shortstop with Gleyber Torres, primarily revolving around his defense. A 24-year-old, the Venezuelan has earned two All-Star appearances in four years and could push for a third in 2021, but his defense needs to improve if he wants to reach that accomplishment.

Yankees 2021 Prospects Preview: Antonio Gomez

With only 15 Gulf Coast League games under his belt, Gomez is eager to showcase his catching skills.

The Yankees farm system is pretty well-stocked behind the plate. Although the organization’s catching talent is concentrated in the lower levels of the minors, the Yankees seem especially excited about several of the organization’s young prospects who have demonstrated promise behind the plate. One of those prospects is Antonio Gomez, a catcher who the Yankees signed out of Venezuela as...

The pitfalls of incomplete statistical inquiry

In order to responsibly evaluate a player, we must look at the whole data set, and not just pick and choose the metrics that support our preformed biases

When the Yankees traded for Rougned Odor last week, it spurred a whirlwind of discussion in the PSA Slack. First, we tried to make sense of the acquisition of a seemingly washed-up player signed to a prohibitive contract. When more details came out about the effective zero cost to the team,...

Jordan Montgomery on the hill in an important series finale with the Tampa Bay Rays

After losing the first two contests with the Tampa Bay Rays 10-5 and 4-0, the New York Yankees look to salvage the series on Sunday at Tropicana Field.

The Yankees should have no reason to worry about Gio Urshela

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Despite Urshela’s cold start, there are reasons to believe he will be fine going forward.

The 2021 MLB season is barely over a week old, so no stat line carries too much legitimacy at this point. The Yankees’ offense as a whole has been inconsistent, and third baseman Gio Urshela is among the bats that started the year somewhat cold.

After Saturday’s game, Urshela has 6 hits in 26 at-bats, “good” for a .231/.259/.269 line, one walk and six...

3 major takeaways from the Yankees second loss to the Rays

Today on Pinstripe Alley - 4/11/21

The Yankees wrap up their first series at the Trop, and not a moment too soon.

At this point, the Yankees must be begging to escape the doldrums of Tropicana Field, where they apparently just can’t win baseball games anymore. In their last 10 games at the Trop, they’re 1-9, and the only win was a seven-inning contest. Inspiring. How I long for the days of Doug Waechter and Travis Harper...

Hopefully the Yankees can turn it around today behind Jordan...

Yankees demote Domingo Germán following Saturday’s game

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Without the need for a fifth starter for awhile, there’s little reason to keep a struggling pitcher around.

Domingo Germán impressed the Yankees in spring training after not pitching all of 2020 due to his suspension for domestic violence. Unfortunately for Germán, spring training can easily deceive, and sure enough, once the calendar flipped to April and games that actually counted, he got smoked.

Both the Blue Jays and Rays weren’t fooled, and he allowed 7...

Top prospects headline the upper level pitching in the Yankees’ system

The Yankees have a trio of elite prospects rising to the upper levels of the system this coming year.

The Yankees’ system has been known its fleet of young power arms over the last few years. Those arms have worked their way to the upper levels of the system and are now routinely ranked among the team’s best prospects. Pitching alongside those top prospects are other arms with the potential to contribute to the Yankees in the near future. Let’s take a look at...

Yankees 0, Rays 4: Go do something fun for the rest of your Saturday

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Rays jumped all over Domingo Germán while the Yankees were unable to get anything going against the Rays’ bullpen.

The Tampa Bay Rays continued their recent dominance over the Yankees, shutting down the Yankees, 4-0, on Saturday afternoon. Looking for a big second start to the season after throwing only three innings in last week’s loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, Domingo Germán was lackluster, giving up four runs on eight hits and one walk....

New York Yankees Recap: Domingo German bombs again in Yankees 2nd loss to the Rays

The Yankees have to consider their options at first base

Chris Pedota, NorthJersey.com via Imagn Content Services, LLC

The Jay Bruce experiment isn’t working out in the early going, and the Yankees have little incentive to prolong it.

In mid-February, the Yankees signed veteran slugger Jay Bruce to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. He started the Grapefruit League nicely, going 4-for-6 with a homer, but cooled off and finished the warm-up games with a .206/.289/.441 line.

It wasn’t a scintillating performance by any...

Domingo Germán looks to bounce back after a rough first start in today’s Saturday afternoon matinee.

Well, yesterday afternoon’s game was no fun, was it? I personally wasn’t able to watch, but the 10-5 score doesn’t exactly make me think I would have enjoyed watching it. The glorious thing about baseball, however, is that after (almost) every loss, there’s another game to play.

Domingo Germán gets the ball for the Yankees, making his second start...

Chris Gittens put on a show for Yankees fans in spring training, but he has a lot to prove before he’s ready for a spot in the Bronx.

Even with Luke Voit’s knee surgery during spring training, the Yankees have some depth at first base on the 40-man roster. In addition to Jay Bruce, who is currently the team’s starting first baseman, the Yankees have DJ LeMahieu and Mike Ford as players who could slide into the role. But after a strong...
