The Yankees’ next wave of Baby Bombers will be on the mound

The Yankees’ next wave of Baby Bombers will be on the mound

After graduating a stellar crop of position players, the farm system has become an arm factory Remember the Killer B’s? Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances and Andrew Brackman were, once upon a time, supposed to be the core of a newly dominant Yankee rotation. They were all ranked in Baseball America’s Top 100 Prospects in 2011, before their magnanimous fall. The only one of the three that became a regular member of the 25-man roster was Betances, who’s been one of the best relief pitchers in baseball over his career, but that’s a far cry from the franchise-defining rotation strength...

The Yankees made a wise investment in their bullpen

The Yankees made a wise investment in their bullpen

The second installment in The State of Yankees Pitching finds the offseason strategy to build a super-bullpen is paying dividends. The Yankees have placed a premium on bullpen performance for most of my lifetime, with some of the crown jewels of the player development machine showing up in relief roles. Names like Mariano Rivera, David Robertson and Dellin Betances quickly come to mind. The team has made relief pitching even more of a priority over the past few years, with the club shelling out money for the biggest and brightest relievers on the open market every winter. This used to be a...

NYY news: Remember when Cash got Gio and Voit?

Luke Voit and Gio Urshela continue to impress; Dellin Betances has lat strain; Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton could return soon; NBA Finals invade the Yankees’ clubhouse New York Post | Joel Sherman: During yesterday afternoon’s slugfest, the Yankees received a pair of home runs from Luke Voit and Gio Urshela. While that seems completely normal today, those two weren’t even in the organization this time last year. In fact, neither were believed to be anything other than Quad-A types. Now Voit leads all American League first basemen in All-Star voting, while Urshela has the...

Yankees shut down Dellin Betances in sad injury setback

The mysterious lat setback has hit the Yankees again. A Tuesday morning MRI exam revealed Dellin Betances has a low-grade lat strain, manager Aaron Boone said, and the reliever will be shut down “for a few weeks.” Betances has not pitched at all this season due to a right shoulder impingement, but he was in...

Dellin Betances’ setback could force the Yankees back to the bullpen market

Dellin Betances’ setback could force the Yankees back to the bullpen market

In order for the bullpen to maintain its status among the league’s elite, some outside help may be required. Despite a rough start to the season, the Yankees’ bullpen has been one of the team’s biggest strengths on the year. Yankees relievers have posted a 3.92 ERA, and opposing hitters have just a .690 OPS against them; additionally, they are fourth in all of baseball with 10.12 K/9 innings. Aroldis Chapman, Adam Ottavino, Tommy Kahnle, and Zack Britton have been even better, posting a combined ERA of 2.16 — all four of them, it can be argued, deserve trips to Cleveland on July 9...

Yankees Highlights: Bombers survive shaky bullpen day, win it in extras

Yankees Highlights: Bombers survive shaky bullpen day, win it in extras

This game was all over the place. After playing so well to start the season, the month of June has not been kind to the Yankees. They had an awful roadtrip, dropping back-to-back series against Toronto and Cleveland. Additionally, they were forced to place Domingo German on the injured list, and had to push Masahiro Tanaka back because of the birth of his child. The Yankees had no choice but to go with a bullpen game today, and things got real shaky in the sixth. Aroldis Chapman wasn’t able to close things out in the ninth, and the game went to extra innings. Fortunately, they were able...

Injury updates on Betances and Stanton; Tulowitzki pondering future; CC reconnects in Cleveland New York Post | George King: Although the Yankees are gradually getting healthy, the injury luck has not carried over to the pitching staff. Dellin Betances suffered a setback on Friday and will be sent back to New York for reexamining. He reportedly felt fine after throwing on Wednesday, but did not feel right this weekend. While the Yankees’ bullpen has been quite good this year, the team sure could use Betances to complete their relief corps. Bergen Record | Pete Caldera: Giancarlo Stanton...

Yankees Injury Update: Dellin Betances experiences a setback

Checking in on the Yankees’ injured players It’s been awhile since we checked in on all of the Yankees on the injured list. Some news about Dellin Betances was just announced, though, and now is as good of a time as any for an update on everyone! Dellin Betances After all the injuries the Bombers have experienced this year, I’m not sure why I continue to be surprised when bad news is announced. Betances has been shelved since spring training when an MRI revealed a shoulder impingement. He was shut down for three weeks and received a cortisone shot. His rehab has been slow, but just a...

One bad inning dooms Tanaka and the Yankees

The Yankees kept Toronto in check for eight of nine innings. The fifth inning, however.... You would be forgiven for feeling extremely confident about the Yankees’ chances of winning this game through the first four innings. After all, they had opened up a 2-0 lead. While that’s far from a comfortable margin, with the way Masahiro Tanaka was pitching, it seemed like they might not need much more than that. After allowing a single to the first batter he faced, Tanaka retired 12 of the next 13 hitters. Then, as can happen, things changed with just one inning. The Blue Jays struck back...

The future is uncertain for the Yankees and Dellin Betances

Betances’ return to an already-strong bullpen is definitely a great thing, but it might leave the Yankees in a bit of an awkward position moving forward. Earlier this week, Aaron Boone told reporters Dellin Betances had recently started throwing bullpens and would soon ramp up his rehab. Fortunately for the Yankees, they’ve maintained one of the league’s best bullpens despite not having one of their top arms all season. It is believed Betances could make his return to the big leagues sometime this month. His return to an already-strong bullpen is a definitely a great thing, but it...
