Andrew McCutchen is the latest trade win for Brian Cashman and the Yankees

Andrew McCutchen is the latest trade win for Brian Cashman and the Yankees

McCutchen has been great in the leadoff role, and is another notch on Cashman’s belt. Many will say it was a trade that should have been done weeks earlier than it was, but Andrew McCutchen has already shown his value to the Yankees in his first few weeks on the job. Since putting on the pinstripes, McCutchen holds an .879 OPS, while almost drawing as many walks (13) as he has recorded strikeouts (15). His ability to get on base in the leadoff spot and work quality at-bats has been huge for the Yanks, especially given the recent offensive struggles for Aaron Hicks. Sure, the Yankees...

Giants win on big night for Hunter Pence

SAN DIEGO - Hunter Pence, his days a Giant down to a precious few, is not ambling slowly with a walking stick in hand. He holds a bat that he is determined to wield with the youthful zeal and pop that once made him a feared hitter. The 35-year-old whirling Dervish made that perfectly clear in Tuesday night's 5-4 victory at Petco Park, which ensured the Giants will win the season series against the last-place Padres. In two at-bats against East Bay native Joey Lucchesi, Pence homered, doubled, drove in three runs and stole a base. Only two other Giants, Ray Durham and Andrew McCutchen, had...

Neil Walker is still the player he’s always been

Neil Walker is still the player he’s always been

The second baseman hasn’t worked out for the Yankees, but he’s still the same player he’s been his whole career. Neil Walker has become something of a forgotten man on the Yankees. The second baseman’s playing time came under fire early in the year when the Bombers quickly called up Gleyber Torres. When Torres and others fell to injury, Walker became a mainstay in the lineup and produced for a time. Now, with the likes of Torres and Didi Gregorius healthy and the import of Andrew McCutchen, Walker is once again drifting to the periphery. It’s a bit of an unfortunate end to the...

Yankees’ bats finally wake up, overpower Blue Jays 11-0

Yankees’ bats finally wake up, overpower Blue Jays 11-0

This is exactly how you start a homestand! Before the game, I thought that the Yankees needed a laugher. After a stressful and disappointing West Could trip, they could use a blowout. A double digit win or something to inspire confidence in the clubhouse and with the fans, you know? That’s exactly what they got, as the Bombers took game one against the Blue Jays by a score of 11-0. The Yankees wasted little time on Friday night, jumping out to a five-run lead in the first inning. It started when Andrew McCutchen opened the game with a leadoff double. That proved a sign of things to come...

New Giants infielder Abiatal Avelino explains his quirky routine before at-bats

Google the name Abiatal Avelino or do a search for the Giants’ new infielder on social media, and the results might not prominently show his statistics, versatility or athleticism. As much as his unique on-deck mannerisms. “I’m just trying to be ready to run,” Avelino said Monday after stepping into AT&T Park for the first time. Avelino, one of two prospects acquired in the trade that sent Andrew McCutchen to the Yankees, has a routine before at-bats that would make any fan do a double-take. Avelino starts by moving his bat behind his head with both hands, then puts his hands on his...

Ranking former MVPs to play for the Yankees

Ranking former MVPs to play for the Yankees

Andrew McCutchen joins a list of several former MVPs to have stints with the teams near the end of their careers. In trading for Andrew McCutchen, the Yankees have added to the list of MVP winners to have played for the team throughout history. McCutchen won the award in 2013, getting all but two first-place votes. Most of the players on that list won the award while playing for the Yankees. The franchise has been around forever, and they’ve been the most successful team in the league. It makes sense that they would have had seen so many of their players receive recognition over the...

Defense alone makes Adeiny Hechavarria a sneaky good late season pickup

The Yankees made two trades prior to the August 31st postseason eligibility deadline last week. The first brought Andrew McCutchen to New York in a three-player trade with the Giants. The deal had been reported a day earlier, so it wasn’t a surprise when it went down. It always seemed likely the Yankees would add […] The post Defense alone makes Adeiny Hechavarria a sneaky good late season pickup appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Giants call up newly acquired infield prospect

DENVER — As expected, the Giants on Tuesday will promote infielder Abiatal Avelino, a 23-year-old from the Dominican Republic and one of two players the Giants acquired from the Yankees in the Andrew McCutchen trade. The Giants also will recall infielder Ryder Jones, who homered at Oakland in his lone big-league game this season. Avelino, a middle infielder, is said to have a better glove than bat, but he did hit 10 homers at Double-A this season and five more at Triple-A. Combined he batted .283 with a .767 OPS, hitting far better in Double-A than Triple-A. He had two hits in 13 at-bats...

What does Adeiny Hechavarria bring to the Yankees?

What does Adeiny Hechavarria bring to the Yankees?

The veteran infielder will mostly help the Yankees on the defensive side. The Yankees had a busy waiver trade deadline day, as they scooped up Andrew McCutchen from the Giants to shore up the outfield and later snagged shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria from the Pirates. While McCutchen’s fit is more obvious, Hechavarria was a more niche pickup. Though the Yankees have an opening in the infield due to Didi Gregorius’ injury, he is expected to return soon, so Hechavarria is a bit of a wild card. Still, Hechavarria can help the Yankees in a couple of different ways, chiefly in the defensive...

Can Andrew McCutchen still be great?

Can Andrew McCutchen still be great?

The Yankees’ newest outfielder is on the decline, but is there still greatness in the former NL MVP? With the waiver trade deadline in the past, the Yankees now have two former NL MVP’s on their roster. One of them, Giancarlo Stanton, is still in the vicinity of his MVP form. Stanton won’t smash 59 homers this year, but he’s stepped up and carried the Yankees in the wake of a rash of injuries, despite his own ailments. Andrew McCutchen, on the other hand, is far removed from his peak. The 31-year-old is now a superstar in name only, no longer for his play. Once upon a time,...
