Offense struggles again in 4-2 loss to Blue Jays

Source: FanGraphs The 4-2 final score makes Monday’s series opening loss seem closer than it really was. The Yankees mustered very little offense most of the night before making noise against some bad Blue Jays relievers in the ninth. They actually brought the tying run to the plate, but alas. The Yankees have lost four […] The post Offense struggles again in 4-2 loss to Blue Jays appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

DotF: Holder’s hitting streak snapped in Charleston’s loss

Triple-A Scranton (5-3 loss to Durham) CF Ben Gamel: 0-4, 1 BB, 1 K RF Aaron Judge: 0-5, 2 K — he’s 7-for-49 (.143) with a 30.9% strikeout rate in his last 13 games DH Nick Swisher: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 K — think he heard Dustin Ackley‘s going to miss an extended period of […] The post DotF: Holder’s hitting streak snapped in Charleston’s loss appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Game 50: Memorial Day

I don’t know about you, but a night game on Memorial Day just feels wrong. Blame Canada, I guess. The Yankees are in Toronto for three games this week, the first of which they’ll play tonight. The Blue Jays won two of three in the first two series of the season between these clubs. It […] The post Game 50: Memorial Day appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees send Severino to Triple-A, place Ackley on DL

The Yankees have placed utility player Dustin Ackley on the 15-day DL with a dislocated right shoulder, the team announced today. Rob Refsnyder has been recalled to fill the roster spot. Also, the Yankees activated Luis Severino off the DL and optioned him to Triple-A Scranton. The Severino move is far more notable. He made […] The post Yankees send Severino to Triple-A, place Ackley on DL appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

5/30 to 6/1 Series Preview: Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays again? The Blue Jays again. These two teams met in New York last week and now they’ll play three games in Toronto. This is their third series of the season overall and their second at Rogers Centre. The Yankees won the first game and dropped the next two in each of the […] The post 5/30 to 6/1 Series Preview: Toronto Blue Jays appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankeemetrics: A Ray of Hope [May 27-29]

Super Hiro A couple veteran sluggers made sure that the Yankees wouldn’t waste another pitching gem in Friday night’s series opener at Tampa Bay. Alex Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran both homered in support of another brilliant performance by Masahiro Tanaka, leading the Bronx Bombers to a 4-1 win over the Rays. Tanaka took a perfect […] The post Yankeemetrics: A Ray of Hope [May 27-29] appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Castro’s home run rescues the Yankees from no-no, leads to a 2-1 win over the Rays

As Drake said, that went from 0 to 100 real quick. The Yankees were no-hit for 6.1 innings by Rays starter Jake Odorizzi, but Starlin Castro‘s two-run homer gave them a lead for good. Nathan Eovaldi was awarded with a win for his good outing and the Yankee bullpen arms did their thing to shut […] The post Castro’s home run rescues the Yankees from no-no, leads to a 2-1 win over the Rays appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

DotF: Luis Severino throws three scoreless innings in first rehab game

Two quick notes: IF Deibinson Romero has been released, according to Shane Hennigan. The move clears a roster spot for RHP Brady Lail, who was technically called up from Double-A Trenton. Lail never actually left Scranton though. He was between starts and it was a paper move to temporarily clear a roster spot for LHP […] The post DotF: Luis Severino throws three scoreless innings in first rehab game appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Game 49: Rubber Game

By my quick count, the Yankees have played 12 three-game series this season, and even with that recent 13-7 stretch, they’ve won only four of those 12 series. Yikes. Today’s rubber game with the Rays is a chance for series win No. 5, and also a chance to get back within a game of .500. […] The post Game 49: Rubber Game appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Looking Ahead

There comes a day when you rectify the team you are with the team you want to be; the Yankees can’t seem to make the two things coexist. On the good side of things, the Yankees lead the American League in both strikeout percentage and walk rate from the mound. They’ve also got a respectable […] The post Looking Ahead appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Pineda pounded yet again, Yankees fall 9-5 to Rays

Source: FanGraphs Man I hope this season doesn’t turn into a series of “the Yankees are trying to get back to .500″ games, but I fear that’s where they’re heading. They lost Saturday afternoon’s game 9-5 to the Rays to fall to 23-25 on the season. It’s a Saturday, so let’s recap with bullet points: […] The post Pineda pounded yet again, Yankees fall 9-5 to Rays appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Game 48: Start A New Winning Streak

Last week, the Yankees dropped two straight games to the Diamondbacks and it turned out to be nothing more than a hiccup. They won six straight games after that. The Yankees are trying to do that again. They dropped two straight to the Blue Jays but rebounded to win last night. Time to keep winning […] The post Game 48: Start A New Winning Streak appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
