The best Yankees’ lineup includes Mike Tauchman in left field

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports To maximize offensive production and defensive prowess, the Yankees should start Mike Tauchman at left and Giancarlo Stanton at designated hitter Barring further injuries, or sudden loss of ability, the Yankees’ Opening Day depth chart is almost set in stone. Every position player slot is pretty much a lock except for the designated hitter. The battle for the last open spot in the batting order figures to be the most intriguing positional storyline of spring training. One player appears to have set himself apart in that competition. Miguel Andujar and...

Yankees 2020 Season Preview: Albert Abreu

Photo by Cliff Welch/Icon Sportswire via Abreu will attempt to harness his high ceiling potential and become a contributor at the major league level in 2020. When Gary Sanchez emerged as the catcher of the present and future in late 2016 it made Brian McCann an expendable piece on a Yankees roster that was being retooled towards youth. That winter the Yankees moved McCann to the Houston Astros for two pitchers in the lower levels of the minors, Albert Abreu and Jorge Guzman. The former has been moved from the organization as part of the Giancarlo Stanton trade, while Abreu has slowly...

NYY News: Stanton speaks on Astros scandal

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Stanton says he’d hit 80 home runs if he knew signs; the Bombers own the highest payroll heading into spring training; DJ LeMahieu hasn’t talked contract extension with Yankees yet; Gerrit Cole is not offended by his new teammates offering their opinions on the Astros New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: Giancarlo Stanton did not approve of the Houston Astros’ apology for their sign-stealing scandal.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton takes his cuts at Astros: 'I probably would have hit 80-plus home runs'

"I probably would have hit 80-plus home runs," said Stanton, who hit 59 homers as the NL MVP in 2017, the primary year covered in the report on the sign-stealing scandal.

He doesn’t have to do much—other than stay healthy—to have a better 2020. Obviously take this with a grain of salt, but the Baseball Prospectus PECOTA projections think Stanton will have a great season. I think we would all be pleased with a triple slash of...

Aaron Boone says Giancarlo Stanton is healthy, but Yankees won't push him

The Yankees' caution is prudent. Stanton, in his second season in pinstripes, had a forgettable 2019, limited to 18 games because of a variety of injuries.

Giancarlo Stanton looks like a DH right now

TAMPA — After missing all but 18 regular season games last season the Yankees seem to be thinking about Giancarlo Stanton more as a designated hitter than all-around player. Monday, Stanton reported to George M. Steinbrenner Field healthy, according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone, and likely to...

These 5 non-roster invitees could make an impact for the 2020 Yankees

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Spring training will provide an opportunity for several players to prove they’re more than just an afterthought. In 2018, the Yankees came into Spring Training riding high off of the hot stove acquisition of Giancarlo Stanton, who would join Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks and Brett Gardner in what had quickly become a crowded outfield, with prospect Clint Frazier also waiting in the wings. Shane...

Best case scenarios for NRIs, through the lens of 2019

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ The 2019 one was an impressive exhibition of the Yankees’ depth. What could 2020 have in store? In 2019 from a position player perspective, everything the Yankees touched turned to gold. Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Luke Voit, Didi Gregorius, and Miguel Andujar all missed pretty significant time during the season, yet the team still had one of the best offenses in baseball. They also broke or challenged all sorts of records in the process. That’s because they managed to get legitimately good, unexpected contributions from the likes of Gio...

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Cameron Maybin

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports The veteran outfielder outperformed expectations in 2019, and his adjusted approach at the plate could sway a Yankees reunion The Yankees’ roster appears to be set, including adequate depth in the outfield. Brett Gardner re-signed on a one-year deal to supplement starters Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, with Mike Tauchman, Clint Frazier, and potentially Tyler Wade and Miguel Andujar in reserve. Throw in Aaron Hicks once he recovers from Tommy John rehab, and one might even call the outfield crowded. However, given that every outfielder not named Gardner...

The new Yankees Nike merch has officially dropped!

Fanatics Just in time for spring training! What’s your take on the swish addition to the pinstripes? It was almost two months ago when we got our first glimpse of the Nike swoosh on Yankees pinstripes. Now the new Nike jerseys and other merch are available for you to add to your collection. Fans obviously feel protective of the team’s look, but the logo blends in fine, especially with the pinstripes. For example, we highlighted jerseys for both Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton. They look pretty good to me! Our friends at Fanatics also have t-shirts and hoodies from Nike available,...

New York Yankees: Giancarlo Stanton poised for monster season

When New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone was interviewed on the YES Network, he predicted that Giancarlo Stanton was going to have a “great year.” I agree! Here’s why.

Three ingredients behind the Yankees’ formula for success in 2020

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees have a championship-caliber roster, but what do they have to do to sustain championship-level play? Brian Cashman constructed a roster that will go into the 2020 season as the favorite to have the best record in the league and win the World Series. Over the past few seasons, he has assembled one of the best bullpens in baseball and added two elite players in Giancarlo Stanton and Gerrit Cole to an already impressive core. Of course the sample size of games in baseball is larger than any other professional sport. It’s a 162-game season, so there...
