Source: FanGraphs Two wins in a row! A series win! The Yankees accomplished both for the first time this season on Saturday night, blowing out the Rays by the score of 9-0.

Game 11: A-Rod’s Encore

Last night was a turn back the clock night for Alex Rodriguez, who hit two home runs and drove in the go-ahead run with a single in the eighth inning. According to ESPN, his monster solo homer in the second inning was the second longest by a Yankee in the last ten years and the [...] Game 11: A-Rod’s Encore is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Game 11: A-Rod’s Encore appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yanks outright Joel De La Cruz, lose Matt Tracy to Marlins on waivers

The Yankees have outrighted right-hander Joel De La Cruz off the 40-man roster, the team announced. He is with Triple-A Scranton. Also, the Marlins have claimed southpaw Matt Tracy, who was called up for a day and designated for assignment as part of that long man revolving door last week. Miami says they’ve optioned Tracy [...] Yanks outright Joel De La Cruz, lose Matt Tracy to Marlins on waivers is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Yanks outright Joel De La Cruz, lose Matt Tracy to Marlins on waivers appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Rays 4 - Yankees 5: Rodriguez's 2 HRs power Yankees past Rays

He's Baaaaack. . . It was Alex Rodriguez's night Friday, as he hit two home runs and drove in four to carry the Yankees over Rays in the first game between the AL East rivals this season. The Rays returned home Friday night after a successful 5-2 road trip to face the Evil Empire for the first time this season. The New York Yankees look very different from the last time we saw them; Adam Warren was on the hill, beleaguered third basemen/designated hitter Alex Rodriguez was back and, most notably, there was a Derek Jeter shaped hole in the lineup and infield. Nate Karns looked to keep his...

DotF: Bird and Jagielo have big nights in Trenton’s blowout win

RHP Luis Severino placed 13th on the first Prospect Hot Sheet of the year following his efficiently dominant start earlier this week. Also, RHP Brady Lail is opening some eyes according to Jon Heyman. “One pitcher impressing folks is right-hander Brady Lail, with the Tampa Yankees. The 18-round pick from Utah throws 90-94 and has [...] DotF: Bird and Jagielo have big nights in Trenton’s blowout win is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post DotF: Bird and Jagielo have big nights in Trenton’s blowout win appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Game Ten: Find an Identity

The start of the 2015 season has been less than ideal for the Yankees. They haven’t excelled in any facet of the game — even the bullpen, which was really good to start the year, melted down spectacularly in the series finale against the Orioles — and they don’t really have an identity. In the [...] Game Ten: Find an Identity is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Game Ten: Find an Identity appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Prepare for War(ren)

Also, Beliveau to the DL, Mahtook to Durham, and the Ryan Brett era begins. After an eventful series north of the border against a division rival, the Rays come back home for what could another eventful series against the New York Yankees. The Yankees were off yesterday, after losing their past two games against the Orioles in Baltimore. The Rays will send Nathan Karns to the mound, who greatly improved on his first start by allowing two runs (one earned) in seven innings against the Marlins last Sunday. Karns will be opposed by the Yankees right hander, Adam Warren who made his first start...

The Yankees spent yesterday’s off-day at their second home in Tampa, and tonight they’ll open a three-game series with the Rays at Tropicana Field.

DotF: Judge leads Trenton to win with walk-off homer

Baseball America threw some love RHP Rookie Davis’ way in their Prospect Hot Sheet prequel. “He tops out near 96 mph and sits comfortably in the low 90s, while backing up his heater with a solid mid-70s curveball and ever-improving control … So far, so good for Davis, who has notched a 12-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio [...] DotF: Judge leads Trenton to win with walk-off homer is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post DotF: Judge leads Trenton to win with walk-off homer appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Thursday Night Open Thread

Your browser does not support iframes.The Yankees have been pretty terrible running the bases so far this season — three stolen bases, four caught stealings, three pickoffs, two other outs on the bases! — but nothing they’ve done compares to the blunder Robbie Cano made last night.
