Open Thread: March 18th Camp Notes

A late home run sent the Yankees to a loss today. Billy McKinney smacked his third home run of the spring while Gary Sanchez had a two-run double. Aaron Judge had a no-run double. Jacoby Ellsbury and Tyler Wade had base hits as well. Bit of a quiet day for the offense. CC Sabathia started […] The post Open Thread: March 18th Camp Notes appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

What does Statcast’s catch probability tell us about Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner?

Barring injury or a last minute Spring Training trade, when the 2017 regular season begins, the Yankees will have Brett Gardner in left field and Jacoby Ellsbury in center field. That’s been the regular arrangement for three years now. The Yankees will have some things to figure out once prospects like Clint Frazier or Dustin […] The post What does Statcast’s catch probability tell us about Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner? appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Gary Sanchez will crush the ball from anywhere in Yankees lineup

Gary Sanchez will crush the ball from anywhere in Yankees lineup

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — The Yankees didn’t bring Brett Gardner or Jacoby Ellsbury to Charlotte Sports Park on Tuesday, so that gave Joe Girardi a reason to hit Gary Sanchez second in the lineup. And it’s becoming obvious the catcher will hit wherever he is in the order. He went deep again in a 10-6...

Outfielders on the wrong side of 30 [2017 Season Preview]

Welcome to Year 4 of Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury manning the Yankees’ outfield. At the time Ellsbury signed in the 2013-14 offseason, it seemed like Gardner may quickly receive a ticket out of New York, but an extension for the speedster said otherwise. Three years of trade rumors have followed yet Gardner is still […] The post Outfielders on the wrong side of 30 [2017 Season Preview] appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury on the run again

Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury on the run again

Jacoby Ellsbury has stated in past Yankees spring trainings that he does not care to steal bases in camp.

Ellsbury off to a hot start; FanGraphs ranks NYY’s top 33 prospects; Mateo learning from past; Bird and Sanchez providing hope; Betances excited for WBC and “Platano Power!” New York Daily News | Mike Mazzeo: Jacoby Ellsbury has gotten off to a good start this spring. While spring training stats don’t necessarily translate to the regular season, it is inspiring to see that he’s still capable of solid play. After going 3-for-3 and picking up two stolen bases, Girardi is happy with what he’s seen from Ellsbury so far. FanGraphs | Eric Longenhagen: FanGraphs released their list of...

Is Jacoby Ellsbury capable of another good season?

Is Jacoby Ellsbury capable of another good season?

It’s fair to question whether Ellsbury can even be league average again. I’ll be the first to admit that when the Yankees signed Jacoby Ellsbury prior to the 2014 season, I was on the side that argued that this was a good and underrated signing. One of the arguments against Ellsbury was that he was “injury prone,” a moniker he gained after a couple of freak accidents in the field that forced him to miss nearly all of 2010 and 2012. What has happened since, which essentially proves that the prior argument was essentially true, wasn’t necessarily a given. In an article from Dave...

The New Face of the Franchise [2017 Season Preview]

Over the last few years, really since Derek Jeter retired, the Yankees have sorely lacked a franchise cornerstone player. Robinson Cano would have been that guy had he not left as a free agent. Late career Alex Rodriguez didn’t do it for many folks. (Heck, many didn’t like peak A-Rod.) Brett Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury, Mark […] The post The New Face of the Franchise [2017 Season Preview] appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
