Open Thread: 2/27 Camp Notes

Happy Friday, everyone. This is the last Friday without some sort of baseball game — Spring Training, regular season, or postseason — until November. Isn’t that grand? Here is the latest from camp: We have our first Spring Training injury: Brendan Ryan suffered a mid-back strain lifting weights and will miss five days or so, [...] Open Thread: 2/27 Camp Notes is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Open Thread: 2/27 Camp Notes appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Badler: Yankees have $2.26M spending pool for 2015-16 international signing period

According to Ben Badler, the Yankees will have a $2,262,800 spending pool for the 2015-16 international free agency period, which opens on July 2nd. The Diamondbacks ($5.39M) have the largest pool because they had baseball’s worst record last year and the Angels ($1.97M) have the smallest pool because they had the best record.

With no Yoan Moncada, Dermis Garcia and Juan DeLeon headline Yankees’ international haul

As you know, the Yankees missed out on Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada earlier this week. He took a $31.5M bonus from the Red Sox. It’s disappointing but at this point there’s nothing to say that hasn’t already been said. The Yankees didn’t strike out internationally this year just because they didn’t get Moncada though. Far [...] With no Yoan Moncada, Dermis Garcia and Juan DeLeon headline Yankees’ international haul is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post With no Yoan Moncada, Dermis Garcia and Juan DeLeon headline Yankees’ international haul appeared first on River Avenue...

Mailbag: Spending, Pitchers, Warren, Alvarez, Pirela

I’ve got 13 questions for you in this week’s massive mailbag. The best way to send us questions is with the “For The Mailbag” form in the sidebar. DJ asks: From the fans’ perspective, are the Yankees in a lose-lose situation when it comes to spending money?

Mark Teixeira is not going to focus on beating the shift and that’s okay

Position players reported to Spring Training yesterday and one of the first to talk was Mark Teixeira, who is now entering his seventh year as the team’s first baseman.

New pace of play rules mean several Yankees will have to make adjustments in Spring Training

Late last week, MLB and the MLBPA announced a series of rule modifications designed to improve baseball’s pace of play. A few league executives were quoted as saying they aren’t necessarily trying to shorten games, they’re trying to eliminate some of the downtime within games. They don’t want players standing around and fans reaching for [...] New pace of play rules mean several Yankees will have to make adjustments in Spring Training is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post New pace of play rules mean several Yankees will have to make adjustments in Spring Training appeared first...

Heyman: Yankees are “confident” they can void A-Rod’s home run milestone bonuses

As much as they wish they could, the Yankees are unable to avoid the three years and $64M left on Alex Rodriguez‘s contract following last year’s suspension. They are attempting to void the $30M in historic home run milestone bonuses however, and Jon Heyman reports the team is “confident” they will be able to get [...] Heyman: Yankees are “confident” they can void A-Rod’s home run milestone bonuses is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Heyman: Yankees are “confident” they can void A-Rod’s home run milestone bonuses appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Only wrong answer at top of the lineup is one that doesn’t include Ellsbury and Gardner

On the very first day of camp last week, Joe Girardi held his annual start of Spring Training press conference and discussed the importance of settling on a lineup, among other things. “Figuring out our batting order I think is something important, because there are some people we don’t know exactly where they are at, [...] Only wrong answer at top of the lineup is one that doesn’t include Ellsbury and Gardner is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Only wrong answer at top of the lineup is one that doesn’t include Ellsbury and Gardner appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

The easy to forget but still really important Ivan Nova

Since Spring Training officially opened last week, all eyes have been on Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia. Well, at least the eyes that weren’t glued to Alex Rodriguez‘s every step. Tanaka and Sabathia are by far the biggest pitching stories in camp since they are both being counted on as rotation anchors and are coming [...] The easy to forget but still really important Ivan Nova is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post The easy to forget but still really important Ivan Nova appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
