Tanaka returns, Sanchez homers twice in 13-4 win over Tigers

Good start to a series against a bad team. The Yankees came out and took control of Tuesday night’s opener against the Tigers in the very first inning, and they never let up. The final score was 13-4 good guys. The Yankees have won six of their last eight games. Seven Early Runs The Yankees […] The post Tanaka returns, Sanchez homers twice in 13-4 win over Tigers appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

DotF: Ford homers, Mesa dominates in Trenton’s win

Triple-A Scranton‘s game was suspended due to rain with one out in the top of the fourth. It’ll be completed tomorrow. Here’s the box score. I’m not quite sure what that means for 2B Starlin Castro‘s and 1B Greg Bird‘s rehab. Castro played the field tonight and Bird was the DH. I imagine they’ll resume […] The post DotF: Ford homers, Mesa dominates in Trenton’s win appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Game 124: Tanaka Returns

The Yankees are finally starting to get healthy. CC Sabathia returned over the weekend and at some point soon Starlin Castro, Greg Bird, and Matt Holliday figure to return as well. They’re all on minor league rehab assignments. Tonight Masahiro Tanaka returns from what was essentially a quick ten-day vacation to knock out a dead […] The post Game 124: Tanaka Returns appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

New York Yankees hoping to see a renewed Masahiro Tanaka in series opener versus Detroit Tigers

As the New York Yankees get set for their three-game series against the 54-69 Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park, former right-handed ace Masahiro Tanaka was activated off the 10-day disabled list. Tanaka, who’s in line to start the series opener against lefty Matthew Boyd, has been sidelined since August 10 due to inflammation in his […] The post New York Yankees hoping to see a renewed Masahiro Tanaka in series opener versus Detroit Tigers appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

8/22 to 8/24 Series Preview: Detroit Tigers

With so much discussion revolving around the Yankees failure to claw their way back into the race for the AL East, it seems as though their increasingly tenuous grasp on the Wild Card has been ignored. There are four teams within three games of those spots, and the Yankees will face one of them (the […] The post 8/22 to 8/24 Series Preview: Detroit Tigers appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Revisiting the MLBTR Archives: August 2012

We’re a few weeks into August now, but better late than never, right? It’s time for another edition of our MLBTR Archives series, in which we look back at all the Yankees-related rumors and transactions from five years ago. On the morning of August 1st, 2012, the Yankees were 60-43 and 5.5 games up in […] The post Revisiting the MLBTR Archives: August 2012 appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Thoughts with six weeks to go in the regular season

Well, technically there are five weeks and five days to go in the regular season, but close enough. The Yankees had one of those weird mid-road trip off-days yesterday and will begin a three-game series with the Tigers in Detroit tonight. It would be nice to see the Yankees treat the Tigers like the 54-69 […] The post Thoughts with six weeks to go in the regular season appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

With reinforcements on the way, it’s time to drop Aaron Judge in the lineup

There’s a weird dynamic in Yankeeland right now. The two most vilified players on the roster are the runaway Rookie of the Year favorite and the best young catcher in baseball. Gary Sanchez, who is hitting .270/.346/.519 (127 wRC+) with 23 home runs this season, has been catching grief for his league leading 12 passed […] The post With reinforcements on the way, it’s time to drop Aaron Judge in the lineup appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

New York Yankees: The week ahead (August 21 – 27)

Yankeemetrics: Riding the NYY rollercoaster (Aug. 18-20)

Deja vu all over again Another night, another candidate for Worst Loss of The Season. The Yankees suffered their billionth gut-wrenching defeat on Friday night, obliterating any positive momentum they had built up coming off a four-game sweep of the Mets. After flipping an early three-run deficit into a three-run lead in the seventh, the […] The post Yankeemetrics: Riding the NYY rollercoaster (Aug. 18-20) appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

DotF: Andujar’s big game leads Scranton’s to a win

Two quick notes to pass along: C Kyle Higashioka is on the disabled list with a shoulder problem, not a recurrence of his recent back injury, according to Conor Foley. He said his shoulder feels weak. No idea how long he’ll be sidelined, but with September call-ups right around the corner, you can bet Higashioka […] The post DotF: Andujar’s big game leads Scranton’s to a win appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Red Sox 5, Yankees 1: Bad offense, bad bullpen let a game slip away

Source: FanGraphs The Yankees are likely going to be a second place team this year and they looked every bit the part against the Red Sox on Sunday afternoon. Out-hit, out-pitched, out-defended, out-managed. Pretty gross effort all around. The final score was 5-1. It’s Sunday, so I’m going to recap this mess of a game […] The post Red Sox 5, Yankees 1: Bad offense, bad bullpen let a game slip away appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

One Game Makes a Difference

The Yanks jumped on Chris Sale early—thanks to a 3-run homer by Tyler Austin—and hung...

Game 123: Sonny Sunday

Big game today. They’re all kinda big games at this point, but especially today because today’s the difference between three games back in the AL East and five games back in the AL East. The Yankees have an off-day tomorrow, so I imagine Joe Girardi won’t hold back with the bullpen. If he needs four […] The post Game 123: Sonny Sunday appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Full Strength–Or Something Like It

Like any full baseball season worth its salt, the second half for the Yankees has been an unpredictable series of ups and downs. At times, they’ve looked as dominant as they did in the early season; at other times, they’ve looked as hapless as they did in June. Overall, though, they’re holding the line and […] The post Full Strength–Or Something Like It appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Austin’s power gives the Yankees a 4-3 win over the Red Sox in Sabathia’s return from the DL

Was it easy? No. But a win is a win, and that was an impressive win considering the tough loss Friday night. The Yankees rebounded to beat Chris Sale and the Red Sox 4-3 on Saturday night. They’re 3-1 against Sale this year, you know. They’d be 4-0 if Aroldis Chapman could protect a one-run […] The post Austin’s power gives the Yankees a 4-3 win over the Red Sox in Sabathia’s return from the DL appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

DotF: Bird stays hot on rehab assignment in Scranton’s loss

C Kyle Higashioka is back on the Triple-A Scranton disabled list, reports Conor Foley. Not sure if the back issue flared up again, or if this is something new. I wonder what the Yankees will do about a third catcher in September if Higashioka doesn’t get healthy in time. I guess C Eddy Rodriguez by […] The post DotF: Bird stays hot on rehab assignment in Scranton’s loss appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Game 122: Sabathia Returns

Tough loss last night. Another tough loss last night. The Yankees have made a habit of those lately. Pretty annoying. The best thing about baseball is that they play everyday, so tonight the Yankees have a chance to erase that memory and grab a win. There are still six weeks left in the season, but […] The post Game 122: Sabathia Returns appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
