Yankees Highlights: DJ LeMahieu tries and fails to carry team on his back

Yankees Highlights: DJ LeMahieu tries and fails to carry team on his back

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ It took the bats too long to wake up today. The Yankees were forced to settle for a series split with the Indians today. Their pitching did them no favors, and it took too long for the bats to wake up. They attempted to rally in the ninth, but came up just short. We’ll have a full recap up later. Here are the highlights: Winner of the Game The offense wasn’t able to get much going over the first six innings, but DJ LeMahieu finally put the Bombers on the board with a two-run homer in the seventh. He also knocked in another run in the ninth, and was responsible...

NYY vs. CLE: CC Sabathia vs. Mike Clevinger

Photo by Al Bello/ Sabathia returns from the IL as the Yanks look for the series win. The Yankees won a close one yesterday afternoon by a score of 6-5.

Under the Hood: Cameron Maybin has been a revelation for the Yankees

Under the Hood: Cameron Maybin has been a revelation for the Yankees

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports The veteran outfielder has some staying power “Yankees acquired outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Indians in exchange for cash considerations.” Among all of the Bombers’ low-cost acquisitions in recent memory, the former top prospect joined the team in the most nondescript fashion. That says a lot considering that the club has recently traded for or signed the likes of Luke Voit, Gio Urshela, Mike Tauchman, and others. Embracing the fly-ball revolution, Maybin has achieved career highs in exit velocity (89.9 MPH) and launch angle (12.8 degrees) which...

Dellin Betances is a vital piece to the Yankees’ championship puzzle

Dellin Betances is a vital piece to the Yankees’ championship puzzle

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports There’s no question that adding the All-Star reliever puts the Yankees in prime position for their 28th title Thursday night’s dismantling at the hands of Jose Ramirez and the Cleveland Indians raised questions about the Yankees’ pitching staff. Some have used it as an example to avoid employing an opener in the playoffs. While that is a topic for another day, one thing remains clear: the Yankees need as many quality arms available as possible. Dellin Betances’ return, in particular, will prove instrumental in a deep postseason run. When healthy,...

Chaos erupts as Yankees beat Indians 6-5

Chaos erupts as Yankees beat Indians 6-5

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports Even non-active players were ejected from this game! If you missed today’s game, you missed plenty of drama. There were home runs and ejections galore, at least on the Yankees’ side. James Paxton stumbled out of the blocks per usual, but the offense was able to get to Cleveland and hang on for a 6-5 victory. Paxton has to be the most frustrating pitcher on the team. In the top of the first inning, he issued a leadoff walk to Francisco Lindor, Oscar Mercado doubled, and Carlos Santana knocked a two-run single. Paxton settled down until the sixth, when...
