Yankees gain outfield insurance in Mike Tauchman trade

Yankees gain outfield insurance in Mike Tauchman trade

Pressed by moderate concern over Aaron Hicks’ back, the Yankees moved for another backup The Yankees’ depth in the outfield is getting stressed early on this season, and Brian Cashman apparently didn’t want to let that become an issue. Aaron Hicks is going to miss Opening Day, and the Bombers are playing things cautiously with the chronic pain in his back. So, in the meantime, they swung a deal to pick up Mike Tauchman from the Colorado Rockies. Tauchman is a 28-year-old farmhand, only having played a combined 52 major league games over the past two seasons. He wasn’t effective at...

NYY news: Rockies, Bombers make late spring Diehl

Yankees acquire Mike Tauchman from Rockies; Phillip Diehl thought the trade was a joke; Greg Bird removed from spring lineup; CC Sabathia may begin suspension on Opening Day New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: The Yankees and Rockies got together for a last-minute trade on Saturday, sending Phillip Diehl to Colorado in exchange for outfielder Mike Tauchman.

The case for Jonathan Loaisiga to start the season in the bullpen for the Yankees

The case for Jonathan Loaisiga to start the season in the bullpen for the Yankees

With Dellin Betances off to the IL, should Loaisiga take his spot on the Opening Day roster? The injury news continued for the Yankees on this week, as Dellin Betances was diagnosed with shoulder inflammation and will start the season on the IL. Betances now joins Aaron Hicks, CC Sabathia, Luis Severino and Didi Gregorius as contributors from the last year’s 100-win campaign that will be starting 2019 on the shelf. Until some of these names can return, someone has to take their spots. The Yankees made an obvious move by grabbing starter Gio Gonzalez for some rotation depth, but given the...

TAMPA — Aaron Hicks’ goal of being ready on April 4, the first day he would be eligible to come off the disabled list, is “a little ambitious,” his manager said Friday night.

The Yankees’ outfield depth is being tested early

The logjam was quickly called to action. A few weeks ago we were trying to figure out how the Yankees would manage the “logjam” in the outfield. It was one of the reasons some people didn’t want the team to sign Bryce Harper. They employ six players who could make a legitimate claim to a major league roster spot in Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Hicks, Brett Gardner, Clint Frazier, and Jacoby Ellsbury. Obviously, the case is a bit murkier for the latter two. Still though, the team’s problem was figuring out how they would manage this many bodies. There’s an old saying,...

Ramifications of the Aaron Hicks injury; J.A. Happ continues to struggle; CC Sabathia on the verge of history New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks will not be ready for Opening Day.
