The Yankees shouldn’t hand Gio Gonzalez a spot in the rotation just yet

The Yankees shouldn’t hand Gio Gonzalez a spot in the rotation just yet

Gio Gonzalez is a nice addition, but rushing him to the Bronx could be a mistake. With Luis Severino now out until May, the Yankees signed Gio Gonzalez in an attempt to insure their starting rotation. It’s hard to knock a minor-league signing, at the least from the team’s perspective, and this deal is no exception. Gonzalez has been a legitimate rotation option for nearly a decade and is set to make less money than the Yankees paid to Chris Capuano four years ago. There’s virtually no risk in a deal like this. However, the reward might be limited as well. The low upside of this deal...

Dellin Betances to begin regular season on injured list with shoulder inflammation

Add another injured Yankee to the list. Brian Cashman announced today that Dellin Betances will begin the regular season on the injured list with an impingement and inflammation in his shoulder. He had an MRI earlier today and was given anti-inflammatories. Cashman called it a “timeout” more than a complete shutdown like Luis Severino, but […] The post Dellin Betances to begin regular season on injured list with shoulder inflammation appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees vs. Rays: Chad Green vs. Tyler Glasnow

Yankees vs. Rays: Chad Green vs. Tyler Glasnow

The Yankees are trying out using an opener today. It’s a day game after a night game as the Yankees take on the Rays at home today. Luis Cessa was originally slated to start this game, but the Bombers have decided to play around with using an opener instead. Chad Green will take the mound first, then he will give way to Cessa. It could be the latter’s last chance to impress before the Yankees determine who will take CC Sabathia and Luis Severino’s spots in the rotation. This could be the Opening Day lineup, if you think Clint Frazier will make the team: Today's lineup as we take...

The case for Luis Severino and James Paxton as top starters

The case for Luis Severino and James Paxton as top starters

We may not know for how many innings they will shine, but the Yankees’ rotation features a pair of undeniable stars. Are Luis Severino and James Paxton aces? That depends on one’s definition of the word. Based on pure talent level, the pair certainly qualifies. Yet, for those who reserve the title of “ace” for only the consistently excellent, year in and year out, perhaps the two pitchers aren’t quite at that level. Both do come with their fair share of questions. Brian Cashman and the Yankees’ brass has entrusted the top of the rotation to these two talented hurlers. Should we...

The Aaron Hicks injury opens the door for Greg Bird to make the Opening Day roster

Spring Training 2019 has not been kind to the Yankees. They lost Luis Severino to a shoulder injury that will sideline him until at least early-May, and over the weekend top prospect Estevan Florial broke his wrist crashing into the center field wall. That’s on top of Didi Gregorius and Jordan Montgomery rehabbing their new […] The post The Aaron Hicks injury opens the door for Greg Bird to make the Opening Day roster appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

There may be a silver lining in the Yankees’ rotation problem

There may be a silver lining in the Yankees’ rotation problem

Brian Cashman said the organization plans to stick with in-house options to fill in for injured pitchers, and that may be a good thing. Earlier this month, Yankees ace Luis Severino was scratched from his first Grapefruit League start of the spring after feeling shoulder discomfort while warming up. The MRI revealed rotator cuff inflammation, and he is expected to be sidelined until at least May. CC Sabathia won’t be in the rotation to start the 2019 campaign either, as the veteran continues to recover from an angioplasty. He also had another procedure done on his knee this offseason, and...

How the Yankees can mitigate the absences of Luis Severino and CC Sabathia

The regular season has yet to begin, but the Yankees’ season is already off to an auspicious start. Without ace Luis Severino until May (at the earliest) and back of the rotation stalwart CC Sabathia until some point in April, the Yankees will have to begin the season with a depleted pitching staff. Opportunities for […] The post How the Yankees can mitigate the absences of Luis Severino and CC Sabathia appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees potential trade target: Mike Leake

Yankees potential trade target: Mike Leake

Plugging a hole with a Leake sounds counterintuitive, but it actually might make sense for the Yankees. Stop me if you’ve heard this before; the Yankees need some depth in the rotation. With Luis Severino recovering from rotator cuff inflammation and CC Sabathia coming back from angioplasty, two starting spots are currently vacated to begin the 2019 season. Candidates exist both externally and internally, but in keeping with the rest of the universe, all have their warts. At this point, the best starter on the market is pretty clearly Dallas Keuchel, who is coming off of a 200-plus...

Yankees: Is Gio Gonzalez the answer for New York?

The New York Yankees are said to be considering free agent left-hander Gio Gonzalez as a fill-in for Luis Severino and/or CC Sabathia. With Luis Severino expected to miss at least the regular season’s first month, the New York Yankees are casting eyes on the still-smoldering free agent market for help.
