Miguel Andujar brings a unique mix to the Yankees lineup

Miguel Andujar brings a unique mix to the Yankees lineup

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Miguel Andujar will look to regain his productive, and unique, offensive form in 2020. All throughout the 2019 season, countless Yankee depth players were given the opportunity to contribute due to injures to regular everyday fielders. These replacements never missed a beat, producing numbers no one saw coming. Still, the injuries sapped the Yankees of a number of their highest-profile performers. Luis Severino, Giancarlo Stanton, Dellin Betances, and Miguel Andujar, weren’t able to impact the season as they would have liked, but three of them will return to the...

The Yankees haven’t forgotten how great Luis Severino is. Neither should we

The Yankees haven’t forgotten how great Luis Severino is. Neither should we

Photo by Elsa/ The young pitcher is looking to rebound in 2020 Over the course of the offseason the Yankees have promoted six pitchers and outfielder Estevan Florial to the 40-man roster, while signing ace Gerrit Cole. Compared to last winter when the Yankees covered multiple holes on the active roster, this offseason hasn't been all that busy. It’s important to remember, however, since the pivot point at 2016 trade deadline, Brian Cashman has raised the overall talent level of this club, making it increasingly difficult to designate any player for assignment, as no one seems...

Checking in on the state of the Yankees’ 40-man roster

Photo by Emilee Chinn/ How is the roster currently constructed, and how might it change? As the offseason hits its final stretch (yay!), the Yankees’ 40-man roster has remained largely unchanged for most of the winter. With that in mind, now is a good time to check in at the current roster, and see how things might expect to change in the upcoming weeks. Starting Pitching On MLB roster in 2019: Gerrit Cole, J.A. Happ, James Paxton, Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka Prospects/Rookies: Deivi Garcia, Luis Gil, Luis Medina, Nick Nelson Between the full-time starters and the swingmen listed...

The Yankees can expect to carry their success over to the new decade

The Yankees can expect to carry their success over to the new decade

Danielle Parhizkaran-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees rebuilt their franchise all while winning the most games of any team over the last decade. Now they look to dominate the next. For the first time since the 1980’s, the Yankees did not win a World Series over one decade. It was a rather fascinating decade to be a Yankees fan, as we witnessed the exit of one core group of players and the entrance of another. More specifically fans saw Yankee greats like Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, and Mariano Rivera retire and welcomed youngsters like Aaron Judge, Luis Severino, and Gleyber Torres into...

NYY news: Don Larsen has passed away

NY Daily News | Bill Madden: Yankee legend Don Larsen passed away yesterday. He remains the only man to have ever pitched a perfect game in the World Series. This is a fun read about that 1956 World Series and the rest of his career. New York Post | Joel Sherman: Injuries were a huge part of the Yankees’ 2019 season, but the Mets had some as well. Luis Severino, Giancarlo Stanton, and Miguel Andujar will all enter 2020 looking to redeem...

Dellin Betances’ best moments with the Yankees

Dellin Betances’ best moments with the Yankees

Let’s look back on Betances’ top performances and achievements in pinstripes. Dellin Betances signed with a New York team on Wednesday, but it wasn’t the Yankees. He inked a one-year deal with the crosstown rival Mets after an injury-riddled 2019 season. He was one of the greatest relievers the Yankees had over the past decade, so it’s only right to pay homage to him and relive his best moments in the Bronx. Betances works out of trouble against A’s in Wild Card Game This is the most recent one and was one of his clutchest moments in pinstripes. After Luis Severino put two men on...

What would an extension for James Paxton look like?

What would an extension for James Paxton look like?

Photo by Elsa/ The Yankees should look into locking down the big left-hander as he nears free agency. Earlier in the offseason, I implored the Yankees to sign Gerrit Cole based on the risk their starting rotation contained going forward. Signing Cole was a slam dunk for a number of reasons, but chief among them, to me, was the fact that the Yankees had Luis Severino and little else locked down past 2020. Signing Cole gives the Yankees a dynamite one-two punch for at least the next four years, and a potential ace for much of the next decade. Some of the questions I raised about the...

Which players may the Yankees look to extend in 2020?

Which players may the Yankees look to extend in 2020?

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees extended some of their young stars last February. Could they do it again? Traditionally, the Yankees have been reluctant to sign their own players to extensions, but last season that went out the window, as the Yankees inked star pitcher Luis Severino and center fielder Aaron Hicks to extensions. Could the Yankees look to ink more of their young, arbitration-eligible players to extensions this winter? Let’s take a look at who might be up for them. Aaron Judge The most obvious candidate for an extension would be the Yankees’ star right fielder,...

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Ivan Nova

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Ivan Nova

Quinn Harris-USA TODAY Sports Could an old friend become a candidate for the back end of the rotation? The Yankees have their white whale to lead the rotation for the 2020 season. In fact, he was introduced today, and that was Gerrit Cole, in case you’ve been in hibernation for the past couple weeks, or perhaps on a social media blackout to avoid Star Wars spoilers. With Cole, and (hopefully) healthy Luis Severino and James Paxton, the Yankees boast a formidable top of the rotation, and Masahiro Tanaka is hardly a shabby fourth starter. That leaves the fifth slot open to a few options,...
