1 immediate concern for every Yankees position

The New York Yankees' starting lineup was all but set heading into Major League Baseball spring training 2017. Gary Sanchez, Matt Holliday and Starlin Castro were expected to lead the way. But Greg Bird and Aaron Judge have also emerged. Yet, concerns remain.
Starlin Castro is a fine in-house replacement at shortstop

Starlin Castro is a fine in-house replacement at shortstop

Much has been made of Castro’s subpar defense at shortstop. Is that actually the case, though? News broke on Tuesday afternoon that Didi Gregorius would miss approximately six weeks with a shoulder strain. With that came a flurry of speculation as to who would take over at shortstop when the Yankees break from camp in less than two weeks. Would it be utility infielder Ronald Torreyes? Or maybe former Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada? Perhaps the team will continue the youth movement and opt for a prospect like Tyler Wade. A number of options popped up around the internet. A less popular...

Spring training 2017: Yankees vs Phillies gamethread

Tanak. Masahiro Tanaka has been absolutely dominant this spring, and he looks to continue that dominance in today’s outing against the Phillies. The Yankees’ ace and his teammates will travel to Clearwater for the afternoon start. Many of the regulars are expected to make the trip, including Greg Bird, Starlin Castro, and Brett Gardner. It’s getting pretty late in the spring, so the normal crew of players should be starting more and more as they gear up for the 162-game grind ahead. You can watch Tanaka be awesome (and maybe see some Bird dingers) on MLB.tv at 1:05 pm ET this...

March 21st Camp Notes: Gregorius, Castro, Betances

Your browser does not support iframes.The Yankees dropped their Spring Training game to the Red Sox tonight. It was a pretty quiet night for the offense, though Matt Holliday socked a dinger against Chris Sale, and Starlin Castro had two hits as well. One of the two was a double.

Yankees’ possible Gregorius fill-ins: former and future shortstops

TAMPA — If the Yankees need Starlin Castro to fill in at shortstop for however long Didi Gregorius is sidelined by his right shoulder injury, the second baseman is confident he can handle the assignment. “I can do that for sure. That’s my natural position and I think I can do that,’’ Castro said Monday...

6 Yankees shortstops who could fill in for hurt Didi Gregorius

The New York Yankees learned they will be without shortstop Didi Gregorius for the start of the season. Manager Joe Girardi and general manager Brian Cashman will have to decide who will take over at perhaps the most important position on the field. Early candidates include top prospect Tyler Wade, second baseman Starlin Castro and utility man Ronald Torreyes.

Open Thread: March 16th Camp Notes

The Yankees showed their Fighting Spirit and rallied for a win over the Blue Jays this afternoon. Today’s dinger hitters: Aaron Hicks (okay), Starlin Castro (cool), Rob Refsnyder (wait, really?), and Clint Frazier (sweet!). Refsnyder and Frazier both hit their first of the spring. Hicks, Frazier, Castro, and Ronald Torreyes each had two hits. Tyler […] The post Open Thread: March 16th Camp Notes appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Time is running short to solve Yankees’ Starlin Castro problem

TAMPA — Of all active players, who had the most hits through his age-26 season? For no reason in particular, let’s go top three: 1. Miguel Cabrera, with 1,220 through 2009. 2. Albert Pujols, with 1,159 through 2006. 3. Starlin Castro, with 1,147 through 2016. Here with the Yankees, one can lose sight of Castro’s...

A Couple of Middle Infielders in Their Prime [2017 Season Preview]

There seems to be a strong consensus that 2016 was a breakout season for Didi Gregorius, and something between a disappointment and a shrug of the shoulders for Starlin Castro. This is unsurprising, considering that the former set career highs (nearly) across the board, whereas the latter failed to have the change of scenery bounceback […] The post A Couple of Middle Infielders in Their Prime [2017 Season Preview] appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees Making the Team Meter: Hitters - Week One

Which young position players have the best chance at cracking the Opening Day roster? This morning, Jason re-introduced Pinstripe Alley’s annual Making the Team Meter by going through the pitchers in camp who are hoping to impress Joe Girardi and his coaching staff. The team’s position players are a little more set in stone, but there are still some questions to resolve for them, too. Here’s the legend we use: The Yankees will probably go with the standard 12-man pitching staff to begin the season, leaving 13 spots for the position players. Gary Sanchez, Starlin Castro,...

Yankees rumors: New York fielding offers for Rob Refsnyder

Yankees rumors: New York fielding offers for Rob Refsnyder

Starlin Castro essentially took Refsnyder’s would-be on the Yankees roster. With Starlin Castro set to open the season as New York’s starting second baseman, the Yankees are taking offers for infielder Rob Refsnyder, according to The New York Post’s George A. King III. Refsnyder, 25, was drafted by the Yankees in the fifth round of the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft. He is a controllable piece who isn’t arbitration eligible until 2019 and won’t be a free agent until 2023. Refsnyder has appeared in a combined 74 games with the Yankees the last two seasons and hit .262/.332/.354 with two...
