Today on Pinstripe Alley - 8/16/22

Photo by Sarah Stier/ A miserable August drags on for the Yankees. The Yankees look absolutely horrible right now, especially at bat. They’ve only scored 3 runs in their last 34 innings, and all of them came off the bat of Isiah Kiner-Falefa. Even Aaron Judge has looked mortal as of late. So yeah, it’s pretty dire, and unless the Yankees’ front office shows any sign of urgency — which has not been present — then it’s going to be up to the badly-slumping dudes on the field to turn it around. Lovely. We have a busy day ahead of us on the site. Dan will do his...

Breaking down Jose Trevino and Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s clutch play in Boston

Breaking down Jose Trevino and Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s clutch play in Boston

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports With runners on first and second and just one out, the Yankee catcher and shortstop teamed up to keep the winning run out of scoring position. No matter how you measure it, the New York Yankees have one of the best defenses in baseball this season. Their 14 Outs Above Average rank seventh in baseball, and their 4.6 UZR/150 is behind only the St. Louis Cardinals and Cleveland Guardians. For those who prefer more traditional metrics, their .988 fielding percentage also ranks third, behind the Cardinals and Mariners. Most impressively of all,...

Isiah Kiner-Falefa Made Trade To Retrieve First Yankees Home Run Ball

Isiah Kiner-Falefa picked a great time to launch his first home run with the Yankees. New York’s starting shortstop blasted a two-run, game-tying home run in the fifth inning of Saturday night’s Yankees-Red Sox game at Fenway Park. It marked the first-round tripper since Oct. 1 of last year for Kiner-Falefa, who also brought across […] The post Isiah Kiner-Falefa Made Trade To Retrieve First Yankees Home Run Ball appeared first on NESN.com.

Photo by Kathryn Riley/ New York faces the last test of an abysmal road trip. Yesterday brought two novelties with it — the Yankees won a game, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa hit a home run. The Yankees shortstop finally got rid of the goose egg on his stat line, powering one over the Monster and critically contributing to the team’s win over Boston. They’ll put an end to this miserable road trip tonight, and they could do so with a series win. Before the primetime showdown gets going, let’s run through the day. Matt has a recap of the AL action from last night, and...

Yankees 3, Red Sox 2: IKF’s big day propels Bombers to much-needed win

Yankees 3, Red Sox 2: IKF’s big day propels Bombers to much-needed win

Photo by Kathryn Riley/ IKF’s first Yankee homer and an RBI squeeze bunt got the Yanks the runs they needed to pull out a win in Boston. Even if he ends up having a perfectly nice Yankees career, someone might ask you years from now, “Hey, remember that big game from Isiah Kiner-Falefa?” There’s a very good chance that they’ll mean this one. Kiner-Falefa ended up driving in all three of the Yankees runs, on two completely polar opposite hits. The first two RBI came on his first home run of the season, taking a pitch into the Green Monster seats. Then late in...

The Yankees could try Oswaldo Cabrera for more offensive upside at shortstop

The Yankees could try Oswaldo Cabrera for more offensive upside at shortstop

GREG WOHLFORD/ERIE TIMES-NEWS via Imagn Content Services, LLC If the Yankees really believe that Oswald Peraza is best served in Triple-A, then they could turn to his teammate for a big-league boost. After bringing in Frankie Montas, Scott Effross, Lou Trivino, Andrew Benintendi, and the injured Harrison Bader at the deadline, the only position of need the Yankees did not address was shortstop. The plan before the season was for Isiah Kiner-Falefa to be a “bridge” player for prospects Oswald Peraza, Anthony Volpe, and to a lesser extent, Oswaldo Cabrera. He started...

NYY News: Carp down, Miggy up

Photo by Alika Jenner/ How rest-of-season schedule could impact the AL playoff race; Yankees replace Matt Carpenter with Miguel Andújar; Isiah Kiner-Falefa not worried about top shortstop prospects; Yankees continue reshuffling down on the farm CBS Sports | Mike Axisa: The Yankees suffered a tough loss Monday night, with the resurgent Matt Carpenter going down with a foot fracture, one that could sideline him for the rest of the season. To replace Carpenter, the club flew in Miguel Andújar, who has an .835 OPS in 64 Triple-A games. Andújar has performed well in the...

Yankees potential trade target: Ian Happ

Yankees potential trade target: Ian Happ

Photo by Rich Schultz/ The Cubs outfielder is one of the most attractive targets on the trade market, but is there still a place for him on this team? At this point of July, the Yankees’ needs at the trade deadline have been pretty clear for quite a while now. While the Yankees arguably have the best offense in the league — their 121 OPS+ and 5.34 runs/game are both tops in the league — the bottom of the order has nonetheless been soft, with the team getting fairly little production out of Joey Gallo, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, and Josh Donaldson. They’ve already added...

Yankees At-Bat of the Week: Isiah Kiner-Falefa (7/24)

Yankees At-Bat of the Week: Isiah Kiner-Falefa (7/24)

James A. Pittman-USA TODAY Sports IKF battled out this at-bat for a clutch single. I’ve been waiting for Isiah Kiner-Falefa to be featured in this article series. While I have my qualms with his swing mechanics, there is no denying he can battle his way through at-bats in big situations for the Yankees. In that way, he reminds me of the retro shortstop build. He isn’t a great hitter by any means, but situationally, he can battle out an at-bat against any pitcher, and ya know, he can do that bunt thing every now and then. The thing is, I haven’t chosen to write...

Yankees potential trade target: Joey Wendle

Yankees potential trade target: Joey Wendle

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports More lefties can’t hurt, right? The New York Yankees should be active at the 2022 MLB trade deadline. Brian Cashman has his work cut out for him with apparent needs, from relievers to a starting pitcher and a left fielder that can hit the ball consistently. One area of concern for Yankees fans, and one that has been discussed here before, is that of shortstop. Isiah Kiner-Falefa hasn’t been a disaster at the position, but one could look at his numbers and be concerned that he’s starting for a team with World Series ambitions. His .272...
