Does Mike Ford have a future with the Yankees?

Does Mike Ford have a future with the Yankees?

Photo by Alex Trautwig/MLB Photos via The lefty’s regression in 2020 makes his performance the previous year look like a flash in the pan. Over the last few years, the Yankees’ hitting coaches have shown a knack for transforming relative unknowns into fearsome big league sluggers. Just look at the leaps taken by Luke Voit, Gio Urshela, Mike Tauchman and Mike Ford. And while Voit and Urshela have maintained or improved upon that production — entrenching themselves as major league stalwarts — others have crashed back to Earth. Yesterday, my colleague Dan Carty delved into the...

Mike Tauchman’s future with the Yankees is suddenly murky

Mike Tauchman’s future with the Yankees is suddenly murky

Photo by Jason Miller/ A year ago, it seemed like the Yankees had found another diamond in the rough. Now, things aren’t so clear. How a year changes things. Coming off the 2019 season, Yankees fans could be forgiven for thinking their front office had an alchemist on staff, spinning other teams’ spare parts into gold. After all, they appeared to have recently unearthed gems in Luke Voit and Gio Urshela and it seemed Mike Tauchman, acquired from the Colorado Rockies at the beginning of the year, was just the next in a growing list of players to benefit from pinstripe pixie...

NYY News: Time to trade Voit?

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Mark Teixeira thinks the Yankees should trade Luke Voit; What Yankees can expect to earn in arbitration; Homers bring success in October NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Luke Voit’s name hasn’t appeared in any trade rumors, but speculation has risen that the Yankees should try to move him. Former Yankee first baseman Mark Teixiera was the latest to opine that the Yankees should consider moving Voit, with the 29-year-old coming off an excellent season. Teixeira points out that such a trade would allow the Yankees to re-sign DJ LeMahieu and move him to first, though...

Why the Yankees should still be excited about Gleyber Torres

Why the Yankees should still be excited about Gleyber Torres

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ The young shortstop significantly upped his walk rate in 2020, and it could be a meaningful development for his future outlook. The 2020 season was, as expected, profoundly strange in some senses. For the Yankees, it featured an unlikely leader home run leader in Luke Voit, a surprising breakout in Clint Frazier, and a playoff catcher controversy between Gary Sánchez and Kyle Higashioka, among other things. The shortened season also left us with some peculiar slash lines, particularly the one belonging to shortstop Gleyber Torres. One year after smashing 38 home...

NYY news: “They’re a better franchise than we are right now”

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Cashman, Boone hold end-of-season press conference; LeMahieu nominated for Hank Aaron Award; Thames interviews for Tigers vacancy MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: The Yankees held their annual season’s end press conference on Wednesday afternoon, with both Aaron Boone and Brian Cashman taking the podium. These sessions usually produce a laundry list of surprise injury news, but thankfully the Bombers have none to report. Luke Voit has plantar fasciitis and received a PRP injection for it, but that’s all. Game Two of the ALDS dominated the conversation, where Boone...

Yankees 5, Rays 1: Bullpen comes up huge to force Game Five

Yankees 5, Rays 1: Bullpen comes up huge to force Game Five

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ Who knew the game was so simple? As it turns out, baseball is pretty easy when you get great pitching. The Yankees combined stellar bullpen work with some timely power to top the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 in a win-or-go-home game Thursday that set the stage for a decisive ALDS Game Five Friday night. Luke Voit put the Yankees on the board early, clubbing a massive home run off Rays opener Ryan Thompson to lead off the bottom of the second inning. The side-winding Thompson, clearly struggling with his command, then proceeded to walk the next three batters, opening the...

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Yankees made a few lineup moves ahead of a do-or-die Game Four. We’re now just a few hours away from Game Four of the ALDS, where the Yankees will fight to see another day. They just released their starting lineup for this must-win game in San Diego, and it features a couple changes from yesterday. The Yankees finally moved up Giancarlo Stanton, with the superstar slugger in the midst of one of the hottest postseasons in recent memory. Stanton crushed his sixth home of the playoffs last night, and will at last bat cleanup. Luke Voit shifts down to the...

On Gary Sánchez, Tyler Wade, and late-inning defensive substitutions

Photo by Jason Miller/ The Yankees have routinely used Tyler Wade as a defensive sub for Luke Voit. They should do the same with Kyle Higashioka and Gary Sánchez. The Yankees’ wins in Games One and Two of the Wild Card Round represented opposite sides of the same coin. Game One delivered a near-flawless performance in all phases of the game, while Game Two was a scruffy, stressful affair full of lead changes, miscues, and high drama. And it was in that series-clinching game that an often-employed strategy for the Yankees came to a head. For most of the regular season, and particular...
