Dellin Betances has turned his season around

Dellin Betances has turned his season around

The Yankees’ mercurial setup man had a rough start, but Betances’ fastball has returned recently. Dellin Betances has been a source of worry for the better part of a year. His 2014-2016 seasons were historic in their dominance, and he was similarly dominant for much of 2017. He struggled a little down the stretch, though, and as the Yankees progressed through the playoffs, then-manager Joe Girardi showed reticence to let Betances near anything resembling a high leverage situation. Betances did nothing to quell those fears when he yielded five runs in 6.2 spring training innings, nor...

With Kahnle and Warren out, a bullpen spot is there for the taking for Jonathan Holder

One-quarter of the way through the 2018 season, the Yankees’ bullpen has not yet been the strength everyone expected. The bullpen hasn’t been bad by any means. But it hasn’t been automatic either. David Robertson’s given up some big homers, the outs aren’t coming quite as easily for Chad Green, and Dellin Betances is still […] The post With Kahnle and Warren out, a bullpen spot is there for the taking for Jonathan Holder appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Giancarlo Stanton’s dinger gives Yankees four players with 10 home runs by team’s 40th game; Stanton does well against lefties; Luis Severino was not fully satisfied with his performance on Sunday; Dellin Betances makes an incredible catch ESPN.com | Coley Harvey: If you’re a regular reader of my link dumps, you should know that I like dingers. I’m a big fan of them. So I was definitely happy when I found this particular link, stating that the 2018 Yankees were the first team to have four players hit ten home runs each by their 40th game since the 2003 Texas Rangers. That magical...

It's time for the Yankees to put a little more trust in Jonathan Holder

It's time for the Yankees to put a little more trust in Jonathan Holder

Aside from a couple of disastrous April outings, Holder has been great for the Yankees. Coming into the season, the Yankees bullpen was considered to be one of their biggest strengths. Looking at the big picture, the relievers have lived up to expectations, as they currently lead the majors in the following categories: fWAR, FIP, xFIP, K%, and K-BB%. That isn't to say that all is well, though. Suffice it to say that the bullpen depth has been tested in the early goings. After struggling down the stretch in 2017, Dellin Betances is still searching for his old form in 2018. In addition,...

NYY News: TO TEH PEN

Aaron Boone still very confident in Dellin Betances; Yankees are starting to miss Adam Warren and Tommy Kahnle; Yankees are excelling in late-inning magic; Aaron Judge will wear custom cleats for Mother’s Day Newsday | Laura Albanese: Aaron Boone is probably not winning over many fans with his most recent bullpen usage. On Thursday, he used Dellin Betances for two innings and it did not go well. Actually, it didn’t go that badly. Outside of the Yankee Stadium short porch special, Dellin pitched alright. Boone certainly thought so, as he praised Betances’ command as of late. Again,...

NYY 4, BOS 5: Dellin Betances dooms the comeback

The eight-game winning streak is snapped by Boston. The Yankees can’t win every game, but they sure are trying. The Bombers trailed for most of the series finale against the Red Sox, but their trademark late-inning heroics came through. Sadly, due to a combination of bullpen blunders, poor umpiring, and bad luck, the winning streak ends at eight. Boston topped New York by the score of 5 - 4. CC Sabathia didn’t pitch well on Thursday night, but he didn’t pitch poorly either. He just so happened to run into a ton of bad luck. It started with Mookie Betts, the very first batter of the...

He might even be great. Only time will tell, but he sure seems great. Apparently, Brian Cashman has had his eyes on Gleyber Torres for a long time, even before the Aroldis Chapman trade. Once the Yankees made the decision to sell key pieces in 2016, Torres was immediately on his wish list. Because he’s Cashman, he got what he...

NEW YORK — Gleyber Torres became the youngest Yankees player to hit a walkoff homer, a three-run shot in the ninth inning that gave New York a 7-4 win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday for its 15th victory in 16 games.At 21 years and 144 days, bettered Mickey Mantle, who was 21 years and 185 days when he hit three-run, ninth-inning drive of Bostons Ellis Kinder in a 6-3 win on April 23, 1953.Domingo German pitched six hitless innings in his first major league start for the Yankees, who nonetheless fell behind 4-0 when Cleveland broke through against relievers Dellin Betances and Jonathan...

What do the Yankees see in Jonathan Holder?

What do the Yankees see in Jonathan Holder?

In an already-stacked bullpen, the front office sees a clear role for Holder. At first blush, Jonathan Holder is merely the last chain in an already large bullpen, an eight-man staff that has drawn criticism as bloated when the team could otherwise use an extra utility player for, say, extra innings, or when they were held to 24 men during Tyler Austin’s suspension. Yet if you have a bullpen with Aroldis Chapman, David Robertson, Chad Green, and Dellin Betances, and you still make sure to squeeze a pitcher like Holder into the mix, there has to be a solid reason. Holder is unremarkable in...
