What are the Yankees doing with all their at-bats?

What are the Yankees doing with all their at-bats?

Three weeks in, the team is striking out less, but that may not be a good thing Last week, I wrote about how the Yankees have cut down on their strikeout rate, relative to league trends. A handful of games later, that’s holding up, as the team is below the league median in K% and ranked 20th in the majors. On the one hand, that’s pretty good, right? Fewer swings and misses is generally positive, and New York’s supposed propensity to strike out is easily the second favorite piece of fat for fans to chew on, behind the Jacoby Ellsbury contract. Is it really a good thing, though? At the...

The Yankees don’t need Jacoby Ellsbury anymore

The Yankees don’t need Jacoby Ellsbury anymore

Ellsbury is only getting more hurt at this point, so the Yankees are better off without him. This might be somewhat obvious, but it definitely deserves to be said: The Yankees are better off if Jacoby Ellsbury never comes back from the disabled list. The team tried to get rid of him in the offseason, but for whatever reason, Ellsbury was determined to stay in New York. Now he may as well be gone because it doesn’t seem like he’s coming back anytime soon. This is actually a good thing for several reasons. The Depth Chart The Yankees have never been stuck with a player that they need less...

NYY News: No further questions, Your Honor

Aaron Judge makes history by being fastest player ever to hit 60 home runs; Brandon Drury to take new medication for migraine/blurred vision issue; Jacoby Ellsbury gets another injury, because of course; Sonny Gray works with Rothschild to alter delivery; Gleyber Torres removed from Triple-A game for back stiffness MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: It would appear that Aaron Judge is okay at the whole baseball thing. Don’t believe me? Shame on you! Yesterday, his honor made baseball history with his fourth dinger of the year. That oppo-dong would be his 60th home run in 197 games played, which is the...

The Yankees’ starting rotation can help mask their diminished outfield depth

The Yankees’ starting rotation can help mask their diminished outfield depth

The Bombers lost some speed in the outfield. Fortunately, the pitching staff makes covering ground less of a necessity. With Jacoby Ellsbury, Clint Frazier, Aaron Hicks, and Billy McKinney all sidelined with injuries, the Yankees suddenly find themselves needing to patch together an outfield. The Bombers answered the injury bug by sliding Brett Gardner to center field and asking Giancarlo Stanton to be the regular left fielder, with Aaron Judge remaining in right. Aaron Boone would prefer to keep Stanton in the designated role, but he simply doesn’t have many other options at the...

CC Sabatha leaves game with right-hip injury, everyone else also gets hurt; Jacoby Ellsbury, eternally hurt; Dellin Betances has looked better recently; Gary Sanchez’s defense has also looked better, until he got hurt; bear eating deer dot jpg MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: CC Sabathia left yesterday’s game with a right hip injury.

Also, this will be a quick and boring link dump because yesterday’s/today’s game was absolute pain and suffering and made me want them to implement that stupid “runner on...

Yankees wins over Rays perfectly encapsulate this team’s abilities

Two nice wins against the Rays shows how good this team can be. The Yankees have started the 2018 season with a 4-2 record, but things haven’t exactly started smoothly. The team is currently dealing with a major loss in outfield depth with Jacoby Ellsbury, Clint Frazier, Aaron Hicks, and Billy McKinney all hurt. The back of the bullpen, including Dellin Betances, David Robertson, and Tommy Kahnle, have struggled in the early goings. Even the home opener was hit with snow. Despite all this, the Yankees are doing just fine. Things were rocky to begin with, but after the last two games of...
