Photo by Mark Brown/ Miguel Andujar made his outfield debut The Yankees didn’t need a full game to put up a crooked number. The Bombers routed the Nationals by a score of 8-2 in a rain-shortened, five-inning affair at George M. Steinbrenner Field. DJ LeMahieu, Gary Sanchez, Gleyber Torres, Estevan Florial, and Erik Kratz, all contributed to the fun. The first three names make you say, “Yeah, that sounds about right.” The next two? Not so much. In lieu of full-length recaps, we will run bullet-point highlights through spring training. Important contributions and players will get...

How Gary Sanchez’s new catching stance will affect the Yankees

How Gary Sanchez’s new catching stance will affect the Yankees

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Sanchez’s new, lower stance is the latest effort to improve his defense. As Gary Sanchez enters his fourth full season as the Yankees’ starting catcher, we’re all familiar with the annual debates about his potential. His offense is superlative among all other catchers, while his defense leaves something to be desired at times. This isn’t anything new. However, Sanchez is trying something new to try and improve his defense. According to NJ.com, Sanchez is working with new coordinator Tanner Swanson (who was with the Twins last year) on lowering his...

Yankees 2020 Season Preview: Albert Abreu

Photo by Cliff Welch/Icon Sportswire via Abreu will attempt to harness his high ceiling potential and become a contributor at the major league level in 2020. When Gary Sanchez emerged as the catcher of the present and future in late 2016 it made Brian McCann an expendable piece on a Yankees roster that was being retooled towards youth. That winter the Yankees moved McCann to the Houston Astros for two pitchers in the lower levels of the minors, Albert Abreu and Jorge Guzman. The former has been moved from the organization as part of the Giancarlo Stanton trade, while Abreu has slowly...

Gary Sanchez and new Yankees catching guru Tanner Swanson get down to work

TAMPA — Gary Sanchez and the Yankees are looking for balance. The catcher was praised by the front office in 2018 for his focus and ability to frame pitches at the same time he was pilloried by fans and analysts for his blocking. The 27-year-old heard the criticism and focused a little more on...

How the Gary Sanchez-Gerrit Cole partnership will work for the Yankees

Photo by Mike Stobe/ The pressure’s on Sanchez to get the most out of the new Yankees ace. Pitchers and catchers are back, and so too are the media microscopes, fine-tuned to analyze every long toss and every warm-up pitch of new Yankees ace Gerrit Cole. His massive presence brings added pressure to others, too, particularly Gary Sanchez, whose skill and effort behind the plate have long been sources of polarization among fans. After Cole joined the team in December, fans and media speculated the Yankees might acquire Martin Maldonado, who acted as Cole’s personal catcher for the...

Best case scenarios for NRIs, through the lens of 2019

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ The 2019 one was an impressive exhibition of the Yankees’ depth. What could 2020 have in store? In 2019 from a position player perspective, everything the Yankees touched turned to gold. Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Luke Voit, Didi Gregorius, and Miguel Andujar all missed pretty significant time during the season, yet the team still had one of the best offenses in baseball. They also broke or challenged all sorts of records in the process. That’s because they managed to get legitimately good, unexpected contributions from the likes of Gio...
