New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Andrew Cashner

Tanaka is back! It’s Tanaka time! After a DL stint of about a month, Masahiro Tanaka returns to a major league mound tonight against the Orioles. His start to the season may not have been the best of his career, but it’ll be nice to have him back. It will certainly be better than watching Luis Cessa pitch, last night’s game aside. The rest of the Yankees’ lineup sees some more shuffling around. Aaron Hicks gets a chance in the three spot, while Neil Walker retains his place in the starting lineup after getting two hits in the second game yesterday. Other than that, it’s a mostly...

Yankees option Brandon Drury to Triple-A, call up Luis Cessa

Yankees option Brandon Drury to Triple-A, call up Luis Cessa

Following game one of the Yankees’ doubleheader, the infielder was ticketed back to the minors When it comes to roster crunches, the player with options almost always loses out to the one without them. Brandon Drury has been sent back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following the opening game of today’s doubleheader with the Orioles. The infield depth for the Yankees has been a disappointment after the loss of Gleyber Torres last week. Neil Walker has been brutal and committed a critical error today against the Orioles. Meanwhile, Drury has been no better in struggling on the field...

Sonny Gray, Neil Walker, and Being Wrong

Go back far enough into the archives of my posts–whether here, TYA/IIATMS, BBD, wherever–and you’ll find things that I was wrong about, probably a lot of things. If you’re a Twitter follower of mine (sorry about the private account, all), you’ll likely be able to find similarly wrong things…probably even more wrong things, given the […] The post Sonny Gray, Neil Walker, and Being Wrong appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Why the Yankees should play Neil Walker over Brandon Drury

Why the Yankees should play Neil Walker over Brandon Drury

Walker over Drury during Torres’ absence seems like a real head-scratcher, but there’s some sound reason behind the call. The injury bug spares noone in baseball, and the Yankees have certainly been bit in recent times. The latest Yankee to hit the disabled list is young star Gleyber Torres, who is dealing with a right hip strain. Aaron Boone has repeatedly downplayed the seriousness of the injury, and Torres’ placement on the 10-day DL suggests that he won’t be gone for long. It’s still a bummer to see one of the Yankees’ most exciting players go down, though. Here’s hoping...

Ask Pinstripe Alley 6/23/18: Brandon Drury at Triple-A, Matt Boyd trade target, Yankees prospects turned busts

Ask Pinstripe Alley 6/23/18: Brandon Drury at Triple-A, Matt Boyd trade target, Yankees prospects turned busts

Our Yankees mailbag is back with answers to a bunch of your questions! Earlier in the week, I put out a call for Yankees mailbag questions. We received over a dozen responses! I’m going to answer as many as I can this morning, but don’t feel bad if I missed yours. Another edit could give it a try later in the week. Josh asks: Am I the only one upset Brandon Drury is wasting away in Triple-A while his at-bats are being given to Neil Walker? Drury could easily be giving Miguel Andujar, Greg Bird, and Gleyber Torres one day off a week to get regular at-bats. His bat is an immediate...
