The New York Yankees starting rotation is filled with question marks. While Gerrit Cole is the undisputed ace of the staff, the rest of the rotation is comprised of pitchers returning from injury or unproven youngsters.

Noah Syndergaard, Luis Severino could give Mets, Yankees summer boost: Sherman

Noah Syndergaard, Luis Severino could give Mets, Yankees summer boost: Sherman

They were afterthoughts in press releases. They were countermoves. Footnotes. The Mets signed Taijuan Walker officially over the weekend and were thoughtful enough to throw into the first paragraph that the corresponding move to gain a 40-man roster spot was to place Noah Syndergaard on the 60-day injured list. On Monday the Yankees announced Brett...

When it comes to learning English as a second language while also trying to make your way as an elite baseball prospect, well it’s easier said in any language than actually done.

Clarke Schmidt shut down for a month due to elbow injury

Clarke Schmidt shut down for a month due to elbow injury

Photo by Sarah Stier/ The first injury of the spring has hit, and a pitching prospect bore the brunt. Just days after pitchers and catchers reported to Yankees spring training, the team experienced its first injury. It’s not quite as dire as Luis Severino needing Tommy John surgery not long after coming to camp last year, but it’s not exactly something that Aaron Boone can immediately write off, either. Boone told reporters on Monday that right-hander Clarke Schmidt will have to be shut down for three to four weeks after suffering a common extensor strain in his...

What might a Gleyber Torres extension look like?

What might a Gleyber Torres extension look like?

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Recent years have seen a number of young middle infielders signed to extensions before they hit free agency. Two Februaries ago, the Yankees signed two members of their young core to extensions. On February 5, 2019, homegrown ace Luis Severino signed a four-year, $40 million contract with a team option for 2023 worth $15 million. Ten days later, center fielder Aaron Hicks was locked up until 2026 with a seven-year, $70 million deal that included a club option.
