Yankees History: Tim Locastro and other weird DHs

Yankees History: Tim Locastro and other weird DHs

Photo by Alika Jenner/ After unfortunate circumstances forced Tim Locastro into multiple at-bats as the Yankees’ designated hitter, let’s look back at some other times someone unexpected had to play at DH. An unfortunate moment in Monday night’s game against the Mariners put the Yankees into a semi-amusing situation. In a brutal bit of bad luck, Matt Carpenter fractured his foot after fouling a ball of it, leaving him out possibly for the rest of the season. While that’s both a massive bummer and a potential big blow for the Yankees, it led to a situation that...

Andrew Benintendi and opportunity cost

Andrew Benintendi and opportunity cost

What’s the value of permanently holding a roster spot? The most valuable thing in baseball is the active roster spot. You only get 26 of them for any given game, and it generally represents the 26 best players in your organization at any one time. If you add a player to the roster, someone has to be dropped — Tim Locastro, who might actually be the best base stealer in baseball, was sent to Triple-A for the newly-traded Andrew Benintendi on Wednesday night. The Yankees feel that they net more runs with Benintendi on the roster than Locastro, and I’m inclined to agree. But...
