Is Yankees' D-Train slowing down?

TAMPA, Fla. -- Dellin Betances says his velocity is the same this spring at it was at this point last spring, when he blazed through Florida on his way to becoming one of the top-5 relief pitchers in the major leagues in his rookie season. And he might be right -- there really is no easy or reliable way to wind back the clock to see his gun readings from last spring -- but there is absolutely no question that the results are quite different. In fact, it was a year ago just about to the day -- March 23, 2014, to be exact -- when Betances became a serious contender to make the Yankees'...

Q&A: Dellin Betances

TAMPA, Fla. -- Dellin Betances is really turning into one of the great Yankee stories. He grew up in Manhattan, even attended David Wells' perfect game, and now after his All-Star rookie season is likely to be the team's closer. So we took a little time to get to know Betances better off the field. Betances, who turns 27 in a week, loves Kobe Bryant, Jay Z and theater. Q: What was your favorite sport growing up?

Alex Rodriguez returns to third base, Dellin Betances impresses

Luis Severino, Aaron Judge show the goods in Yankees' spring opener

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Last year, it was Dellin Betances playing the part of the highly-touted rookie pitcher, coming into a high-leverage situation -- or, about as high it gets in spring training -- and striking out Jose Bautista with the bases loaded. That opened some eyes, and helped to open the door to the Bronx for Betances, who after a spectacular rookie season is in line to become the Yankees' closer this year. Today, it was Luis Severino's turn: runners on first and second, no one out, and Ryan Howard at the plate.

Dellin no lies: Floyd's the man

TAMPA, Fla. -- Dellin Betances, the front-runner to become the New York Yankees' closer this season, is one of the biggest fight fans on the team, and for good reason. Not only did Betances grow up in New York in the 90s during the heyday of Mike Tyson, a product of Brownsville, but his dad had also tried his hand at boxing as an amateur. Watching fights together on TV was one of the early bonding experiences between father and son. Since Betances is 6-8, I naturally assumed his dad fought as a heavyweight, but Betances laughed at that.
