The wins don’t come as easily as they once did, but the Yankees again beat the Twins on Saturday afternoon, this time by the score of 2-1. They’ve won five of six games against Minnesota this season and are back over .500 at 37-36. The Yankees have spent a grand total of six days over […] The post Pineda’s strong start, Minnesota’s mistakes allow Yanks to rally for a 2-1 win over Twins appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

FOX and MLB Network are showing regional games throughout the night, but it’s a very nice day here in New York, so go out if you can. Talk about whatever here in the meantime.

Exactly three weeks ago, Mark Teixeira was placed on the 15-day DL with torn cartilage in his right knee. There was talk he would need season-ending surgery. Instead, Teixeira returns to the lineup today after “rehabbing” the knee. I say “rehabbing” because torn cartilage won’t repair itself. (I’m no doctor. Someone correct me if I’m […] The post Game 73: Teixeira Returns appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
It’s a good number for me—I lived on 103rd Street when I was little—and it’s...
According to George King, the Yankees will have Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel in Tampa for a private workout either this weekend or early next week. He also has private workouts scheduled with the Dodgers and Mets, among other teams. Gurriel will not hold an open showcase for scouts. He’s doing private workouts only. The Yankees […] The post King: Yankees to hold private workout for Yulieski Gurriel in the coming days appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
There’s nothing quite like a game against the Twins to make you feel good about the Yankees, is there? The Yankees rallied from behind to beat Minnesota in game one of their three-game series Friday night. The final score was 5-3. New York is, once again, a .500 ballclub. They’re 36-36. It would be cool […] The post Yankees come from behind for 5-3 win over Twins in series opener appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
Both OF Aaron Judge (No. 3) and RHP Vicente Campos (No. 14) landed on this week’s Prospect Hot Sheet, so check that out. Triple-A Scranton (8-5 win over Pawtucket in ten innings) LF Ben Gamel: 1-4, 1 R, 1 K, 1 HBP 2B Donovan Solano: 2-5, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 CS — […] The post DotF: Judge, Sanchez, and Austin combine for five homers in Scranton’s win appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
Is there ever a bad time to play the Twins? Not for the Yankees, who have dominated this rivalry for more than a decade now. They took three of four from Minnesota last week, and while that can be considered a success, it’s always disappointing when you have a chance to sweep and fall short. […] The post Game 72: The Twins, Again appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
The Rockies and the Twins and the Rockies and the … Twins. This eleven-game stretch against the Rockies and Twins ends this weekend with three games against Minnesota. The Yankees have gone 4-4 in the first eight games, which isn’t good. They did take three of four in Target Field last weekend though. Now these […] The post 6/24 to 6/26 Series Preview: Minnesota Twins appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

According to Jon Heyman, the Yankees have not ruled out re-signing impending free agent Aroldis Chapman after the season. He’s said to have enjoyed his time in New York. My guess is he’ll enjoy the city of the highest bidder too, whatever it may be. It doesn’t sound as though the two sides have had […] The post Heyman: Yankees have not ruled out re-signing Chapman appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
We’ve got 14 questions and 13 answers in this week’s mailbag. RABmailbag (at) gmail (dot) com is the email address to use to send us questions throughout the week. Brad asks (short version): Will the elbow injury stop Tanaka from opting out? As long as Masahiro Tanaka is healthy and performs well, I fully expect […] The post Mailbag: Tanaka, Warren, Cave, 80 Tools, Astros, Campos appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
Some notes: Yankees on Demand posted a bunch of injury non-update videos: 1B Greg Bird (link), OF Mason Williams (link), RHP James Kaprielian (link), and RHP Austin DeCarr (link). Each video gives the same update. They’re progressing well and plan to return sooner rather than later. Lame. The Yankees have signed a bunch of undrafted […] The post DotF: Judge homers, Solak debuts, Pulaski rained out appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
Your browser does not support iframes.Yet another night without Yankees baseball. Enjoy it, because this is the team’s last off-day until the All-Star break. They play 17 games in 17 days starting tomorrow, and that 17-game stretch includes a short West Coast trip. They’ll be in San Diego to play three games against the Padres […] The post Thursday Night Open Thread appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
Your browser does not support iframes.According to the transactions page on the official site, the Yankees have signed third round pick Nolan Martinez. The high school right-hander from Southern California was slotted for $608,200. There’s no word on his bonus yet. I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough. Martinez, 18, was not a bonus pool […] The post Yankees sign third round pick Nolan Martinez appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
Although the Yankees are still dealing with the penalties associated with their 2014-15 international spending spree, the team is still favored to land one of the top pitching prospects in Dominican Republic when the 2016-17 signing period opens on July 2nd. Ben Badler (subs. req’d) reports the Yankees “look like the favorites” to sign highly […] The post Badler: Yankees favored to sign Dominican righty Roancy Contreras appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
Even with yesterday’s dramatic win, the Yankees came into today with a 35-36 record and a 12.6% chance to make the postseason, per FanGraphs. They’re six games back in the AL East and 3.5 games back of a wildcard spot. Insurmountable deficits? Of course not. But the Yankees have their work cut out for them.

From Super-Nova to Black Hole The Yankees returned to the Bronx for their final homestand before the All-Star break but gave their fans nothing to cheer about on Tuesday night against the Rockies. This was another sloppy performance with multiple baserunning blunders, two errors committed and poor clutch hitting (0-for-10 with runners in scoring position), […] The post Yankeemetrics: Rocky Mtn. High and Low [June 21-22] appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
The Yankees are off yet again today. This is their third off-day since last Monday. I guess they need the break after playing 40 games in 41 days before this stretch of three off-days in eleven games. I know I appreciate off-days more and more with each passing year. Anyway, I have some thoughts. 1. […] The post Thoughts on yet another Yankees’ off-day appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
