Michael Pineda amps up Yankees worries — vs. minor leaguers

TAMPA — Michael Pineda will start the Yankees’ third game of the season April 5 against the Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. After watching him struggle against the Pirates’ Triple-A team at the minor league complex Saturday, it is hard to fathom Pineda fits the part of a No. 3 starter after...

CC Sabatha and Michael Pineda are your #2 and #3 starters; Reggie sees greatness in Gleyber’s future; Clint Frazier and Luis Cessa sent to minor-league camp; Tyler Wade should get the chance at SS; A-Rod admits to being a huge jerk during suspension ordeal Around the Empire MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: I’m going to need you to sit down before clicking this link. Are you seated? Good. This might come as a shock to the system, but the Yankees have determined that CC Sabathia will pitch the second game of the season after Tanaka. Okay, breathe. Breathe. Good.

What is the best case scenario for the Yankees starting rotation?

What is the best case scenario for the Yankees starting rotation?

The Yankees’ rotation doesn’t look great, but does it possess high-end upside? There has been plenty of consternation this offseason about the shaky state of the Yankees’ pitching staff. The team enjoys the benefit of employing ace Masahiro Tanaka, but beyond him, the rotation is littered with question marks (and even Tanaka himself has a bit of an injury history). CC Sabathia was strong last season, but he’s old, and Michael Pineda is forever confounding. Younger pitchers like Luis Severino and Chad Green are unproven. Still, on the whole, the baseline from which the Yankees...

TAMPA, Fla. — The New York Yankees would gladly take a week like this from their rotation during the regular season.CC Sabathia started out with three hitless innings before Baltimore caught up with him in the fourth Saturday in the Orioles 5-4 victory.A day earlier, Masahiro Tanaka pitched into the fifth on what turned into a combined no-hitter by the Yankees against Detroit.

Prospect Jordan Montgomery is in the mix for New York Yankees starting rotation

Michael Pineda and the Luck Dragon [2017 Season Preview]

Over the last two seasons, seventy-six pitchers have thrown at least 300 IP. And, by at least one measure, Michael Pineda has been by far the most unlucky starting pitcher in baseball, with a 1.02 run difference between his ERA and FIP. The league-average gulf is 0.00, and only four pitchers are within half a […] The post Michael Pineda and the Luck Dragon [2017 Season Preview] appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
Judging Yankees outfielders by catch probability

Judging Yankees outfielders by catch probability

A new statcast metric gives us a new way to look at the Yankees’ defense. You know I love new metrics. I recently talked about the new incarnation of Deserved Run Average, and how that affected our perceptions of both Michael Pineda and CC Sabathia. Now we have another new stat courtesy of Statcast, and it may change the way we look at outfield defense. The stat is “catch probability,” which was already used in a way by Baseball Info Solutions. BIS’s stat was subjective, though, so it was the responsibility of a human tracker to put batted balls into categories to determine...
