Yankees 2018 Roster Report Card: Gary Sanchez

Yankees 2018 Roster Report Card: Gary Sanchez

The Kraken fell well short of expectations. Gary Sanchez exploded onto the scene in 2016 as a 23-year-old early-August call-up. The Kraken put on a dazzling display of power, clubbing 20 home runs in just 53 games en route to a second-place finish in the American League Rookie of the Year Award voting. His 3.0 WAR in less than one-third of a season was easily one of the greatest late-season rookie campaigns in baseball history. Sanchez followed with an injury-shortened 2017 season that saw him win the Silver Slugger Award, earn an All-Star nod, and break the Yankees’ single-season...

The Yankees’ farm system looks a lot better than Boston’s

The Yankees’ farm system looks a lot better than Boston’s

Here’s hoping the Yankees are bold enough to part ways with their prospects. The Yankees have completed the second year of their post-“rebuild” phase. I use the word “rebuild” very lightly here, as all the Yankees actually did in 2016 transaction-wise was trade top-end relievers for blue-chip prospects and let Gary Sanchez play for two months. Then again, it’s unmistakably true that the Yankees have undergone a shift in organizational direction since 2016, electing to strengthen their major league roster by focusing on player development and loading up on prospects rather than...

Yankees 2018 Roster Report Card: Austin Romine

Yankees 2018 Roster Report Card: Austin Romine

Romine put together his most complete season yet and filled in capably while Gary Sanchez missed time. The New York Yankees are built around star power from top to bottom. However, every roster has room for a good story or two, a gritty veteran who grinds out at-bats, gives it his all in the field, and always has his teammates’ backs. Enter Austin Romine. A second-round pick by the Yankees 11 years ago and touted as the heir apparent to Jorge Posada, Romine has instead carved out a niche as a trusty backup catcher, a role for which he is perfectly cast. At age 29, Romine completed his...

NYY news: ROY VEY!

Ohtani wins ROY; Much ado about Machado; Yanks buying back YES MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: Miguel Andujar? More like Miguel AndWHOar! That’s what voters were 100% saying when voting for the American League Rookie of the Year. Shohei Ohtani (137 points, 25 of 30 possible first-place votes) ran away with the award. Andujar (89 points, five first-place votes) and Gleyber Torres (25 points) followed him. While some Yankees fans are understandably upset for Andujar, it’s not like he was robbed as Ohtani was definitely deserving. I’m still more mad about Michael Fulmer in 2016 over Gary Sanchez....
