Yankees will retire Derek Jeter’s No. 2 on May 14th

The Captain is officially heading to Monument Park. On May 14th, the Yankees will retire Derek Jeter‘s No. 2 and honor him with a plaque on Monument Park, the team announced. That’s a Sunday game against the Astros, which means former teammates Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann will be there. Pretty cool. This, of course, […] The post Yankees will retire Derek Jeter’s No. 2 on May 14th appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Enter the Houston Astros—and two of their young pitching prospects. The Bronx Embalmers acquired right-handers Albert Abreu and Jorge Guzman from Houston in exchange of McCann and $11 million dollars. It's a good move for both sides—unfortunately.

Breaking down the two Yankees prospects in Brian McCann trade

Add their ages together and they don’t reach Bartolo Colon’s. Which means right-handers Albert Abreu and Jorge Guzman won’t be in position to help the Yankees at the major league level for a while, if ever. Abreu, 21, and Guzman, 20, were acquired from the Astros for Brian McCann and money Thursday. Abreu pitched for...

The necessary caveat of ‘never say never’ applies, but as I see things, that perfect scenario is unlikely to occur. Like Mike laid out in his offseason plan, I’m of the […] The post Don’t Trade McCann appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees are demanding a huge return for Brian McCann

The trade market for Brian McCann continues to refine itself, but this much is clear: The Yankees are not just going to give away McCann and $17 million — unless they get at least one “super” prospect, along the lines of a Clint Frazier or Gleyber Torres, the can’t-miss prospects who were in the center...
