How the Yankees get called at the top of the strike zone

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Aaron Judge is famous for being called harsh down low, but the team actually suffers more up There’s nothing quite like running the Pinstripe Alley Twitter account during a Yankees-Red Sox game, especially the Sunday Night Baseball September kind of game. Last weekend was full of long, plodding games that, while they ended positively for the Yankees, took enough time that I had a few ruminations on the ol’ Twitter: That was not a strike and I have a theory Gary gets burned on high strikes almost as often as Judge does on low strikes— Pinstripe...

Evaluating Luke Voit since his return to the Yankees from the IL

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports Luke Voit’s return from injury resembles the path taken by Aaron Judge. It should come as no surprise that Luke Voit needed time to adjust since returning to the Yankees after missing a month with a sports hernia. Through his first 31 plate appearances, Voit managed just two extra-base hits, good for a slugging percentage of .296. Voit’s numbers have started to come along of late, helping bring his OPS since his return from the IL to .833. He has three extra-base hits in his last four games, helped along by a monster afternoon on Thursday, when he...

New York Yankees: Is Luis Severino the missing piece?

Yankees former ace Luis Severino will be returning on Tuesday to start vs the Angels but is he the final piece of the puzzle to a World Series?

Pitchers who have succeeded and bombed against the Yankees

Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports In the new era of home-run hitting, some pitchers have had great success against the Yankees, while others... not so much. Here’s a look at all of them. Ever since Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez came to the big leagues, the Yankees have been feared as the gold standard of power hitting in baseball. Sanchez hit 20 home runs in 53 games during his rookie season. Judge won Rookie of the Year as he blasted 52 home runs and broke the MLB rookie record. Pitchers over the past three or so seasons have either struggled immensely against this type of lineup or...

Yankees new home run record only more impressive considering season’s injuries

BOSTON — Aaron Judge said they would “crush it.” Way back in March, when the Yankees were still getting ready for the season, back when they were “healthy,” Judge said that the Bombers could crush their own single-season home run record set in 2018. Sunday night, the Yankees passed that record...

Mike Tauchman’s baseball luck has swung in the other direction

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports After a month of finding every possible hole in the outfield, the baseball gods have been stricter with Tauchman’s balls in play of late. What a season it’s been for Mike Tauchman. With extended injuries to Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Aaron Hicks, the Yankees’ seemingly minor preseason acquisition has paid immediate dividends. The outfielder has posted a 122 wRC+, played solid defense, and helped the Yanks sit atop the AL East for most of the season. The question surrounding Tauchman, and many other out-of-nowhere players for the Bombers, is if...

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: While their playoff hopes may be hanging by a thread, the Red Sox are arguably the team the Yankees match up best against in a possible playoff series. While that’s probably true, with the nature of short series and the randomness of baseball, it doesn’t seem like the most fun idea to want that matchup to happen again. New York Daily News |...

Aaron Judge’s power is extremely back

The Yankees sat three regulars, and didn’t use a starting pitcher Wednesday night against the Rangers. That didn’t matter, as they beat Texas 4-1 behind homers from Gleyber Torres and Aaron Judge. Judge’s love for the short right-field porch at Yankee Stadium continued, as he hit a two-run shot...
