Jordan Montgomery’s Adjustment

The Yankees season has largely been a story of adjustments. Or, perhaps, the greatest questions regarding the roster have revolved around adjustments: how would the league adjust to Gary Sanchez? Could Aaron Judge adjust to the majors? Could Luis Severino re-adjust to being a starting pitcher? How would Dellin Betances adjust to his career as […] The post Jordan Montgomery’s Adjustment appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Chapman who? Dellin Betances dominating in closer’s absence

It would be easy for Dellin Betances to look at the month — at least — that he’s stepping into the Yankees closer role as an opportunity to redeem himself for his late-season woes a year ago. With Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman both gone elsewhere in the latter part of last season, Betances got...

The New York Yankees can use fresh arms in the bullpen. Tyler Webb has excelled in AAA and can bring that — plus much more — to the Bronx.  It’s safe to say the New York Yankees’ bullpen has been used more than manager Joe Girardi would like. When closer Aroldis Chapman went down with […] The post Triple-A Hurler Tyler Webb Can Bring Life to the New York Yankees Bullpen appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Yankees bullpen weathers crazy workload to bail out rotation

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Due to a rotation that doesn’t work deep into games, the Yankees’ bullpen is in danger of eventually melting into the mound. However, the pen continued to be a strong point Sunday when Chad Green, Tyler Clippard and Dellin Betances worked four scoreless innings in a 3-2 win over the Rays...

Joe Girardi is helping Yankees bullpen get exposed

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Aroldis Chapman is bullpen majesty. Without him, the Yankees are going to have to find a different path to success, besides Dellin Betances closing games. There is a domino effect, and it reared its ugly head in the Yankees’ 5-4 loss to the Rays on Friday night, as the bullpen surrendered...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Long before Dellin Betances was summoned to squash a ninth-inning uprising, the Yankees were basking in the glow of assaulting a second straight Royals starter.

However, while the left-handed closer recovers from rotator cuff inflammation that could shelve him until the middle of June, Betances said the final three outs of the game are in good hands. “I don’t think I have to...

An appreciation for the unconventionally successful Tyler Clippard

Many relievers live off intimidating opposing hitters. Aroldis Chapman comes at you with 100+ mph and a changeup that hits 90. Dellin Betances can touch 100 and has a curveball that can’t be touched when he’s on. Former Yankee Andrew Miller comes at you with his 6-foot-7 frame and tosses his signature slider with a […] The post An appreciation for the unconventionally successful Tyler Clippard appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
