NYY News: Bañuelos traded to Pirates

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports Manny Bañuelos traded to Pirates for cash; Aroldis Chapman’s continued issues might be mental; Matt Carpenter keeps making the most of his New York chance; Anthony Rizzo will trade HBPs for success against lefties. MLB Trade Rumors | Darragh McDonald: While Manny Bañuelos did finally get to make his Yankees debut this season, his latest stint with the team is now over. The club traded him to the Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday for cash considerations, following his being designated for assignment on June 28. The lefty put up nice numbers...

It continues his brilliant run of form since last being called up May 21st — 15.1 scoreless innings surrendering just one hit against 17 strikeouts. Unfortunately, it was revealed that Marinaccio was dealing with dead arm...

Yankees 13, Guardians 4: Bats breakout for double-digit barrage

Photo by Nick Cammett/ The offense overcame occasional shaky moments on the mound to put up double digits in the doubleheader opener. Maybe an extra night’s rest was all this Yankees offense needed to reset from their lethargic performance in Houston. The bats struck early and often, providing a much-needed cushion as Gerrit Cole and Aroldis Chapman (especially the latter) looked far from invincible for stretches in this contest. It was a bit of a laugher in the end, with the Yankees bashing their way to a 13-4 victory, but there was plenty of intrigue in getting us...

Yankees activate Chapman, put Castro on paternity list

Yankees activate Chapman, put Castro on paternity list

The lefty’s back in the Yankees’ bullpen, and fellow reliever Miguel Castro is on the paternity list. Aroldis Chapman has had a very weird first half in what could be his final season with the Yankees. He dealt with occasional bouts of wildness but ultimately didn’t allow a single run until May 11th (with a key assist from Michael King). Then in the rest of May, the closer fell apart, allowing at least one run across each of his last five appearances and taking two losses in the process. It was revealed that Chapman was battling left Achilles tendinitis, and he hit the...

Yankees potential trade partner: Chicago Cubs

Yankees potential trade partner: Chicago Cubs

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ Chicago’s North siders have quickly fallen out of contention, and find themselves as sellers, while the Yanks are in a buying mindset. The Yankees and Cubs have had a fairly rich trade history in recent years, striking several high-profile deals, the effects of which are still very apparent for both rosters. At last season’s deadline, New York acquired Anthony Rizzo in exchange for two prospects. There was, of course, the Aroldis Chapman rental that netted the Yankees Gleyber Torres, and even the deal that sent Starlin Castro to New York had...

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Clay Holmes has been one of, if not the best relief pitcher in baseball this season. He’s assumed the closer role ever since Aroldis Chapman has missed more than a month due to injury. However, the hard-throwing lefty is scheduled to return to the team soon. Will Holmes remain the pitcher in the ninth, or will Chapman be back in his...

How much can the Yankees trust Aroldis Chapman, post-IL stint?

How much can the Yankees trust Aroldis Chapman, post-IL stint?

Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports With Chapman’s imminent return, should the Yankees use him in high-leverage situations? It feels felt Aroldis Chapman had barely contributed for the Yankees this year before going down with an Achilles injury on May 24th. Even when he has played in 202, it has been with the type of mediocre verve that fits a middle reliever. To wit, he has a perfectly fine basic stat line of 6 runs allowed in 14 innings pitched with a 3.86 ERA. Those numbers are not terrible, but they certainly could be a whole lot better. This all raises an important...
