DotF: Frazier, Wade, and Drury all stay hot in Scranton’s win

Earlier today the Yankees acquired IF Wendell Rijo from the Brewers to complete last month’s Erik Kratz trade, the team announced. Rijo has been assigned to High-A Tampa. He was a good prospect with the Red Sox a few years ago, but not anymore. The soon-to-be 23-year-old was hitting .200/.304/.375 (94 wRC+) in 93 Double-A […] The post DotF: Frazier, Wade, and Drury all stay hot in Scranton’s win appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees Trade Deadline 2018: Identifying potential trade partners

Yankees Trade Deadline 2018: Identifying potential trade partners

Who can the Yankees make a deal with this summer? The 2018 trade deadline is still over a month away, but the Yankees are in need of a starting pitcher right now. Given the circumstances, it makes sense for them to try and make a deal sooner rather than waiting around for the end of July. On the opposite end of the spectrum are teams out of contention who are better off trading their most valuable pieces. There are several teams the Yankees could do business with, but who are they, and how likely is it a deal could be agreed upon? Very Likely to Happen Rather surprising is the fact that the...

DotF: Sauer dominates in Staten Island’s Opening Day win

The Yankees made a minor trade today. RHP Chad Whitmer was sent to the Brewers for an undisclosed sum of international bonus money, the team announced. Whitmer was a senior sign as last year’s tenth round pick and he’s spent this entire season in Extended Spring Training.

Yankees Trade Deadline 2018: Identifying potential trade chips

The Yankees have quite a few pieces to trade this summer The Yankees are in serious need of a starting pitcher or two. Jordan Montgomery is lost for the year, Masahiro Tanaka is on the disabled list, and Sonny Gray is wildly inconsistent. Domingo German is holding his own, and Jonathan Loaisiga is about to get the call, but if this team wants to assemble a rotation worthy of a World Series contender, they will have to add more talent relatively soon. The only question is who will the Yankees have to part with. This year’s team is in a rather interesting position because they have very few...

Aroldis Chapman’s weird reverse platoon split

Aroldis Chapman’s first full season with the Yankees was pretty uneven. In the first season of his five-year, $86M contract — the largest reliever contract in history, that is — he spent about a month on the disabled list and lost the closer’s job in August. Chapman rebounded with a dominant September and an excellent […] The post Aroldis Chapman’s weird reverse platoon split appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

The Yankees should be all in on elite pitching

The Yankees should be all in on elite pitching

I’ll take one Jacob deGrom, please and thank you. On Wednesday, Hal Steinbrenner confirmed the obvious. The Yankees are in the market for starting pitching. The whole offseason everyone assumed the Yankees would add at least one rotation arm in addition to bringing CC Sabathia back, but they did not. The main goal for the offseason turned into keep the Yankees under the luxury tax threshold, which they did. The good news is, they didn’t just squeak under the threshold. They got well under and left themselves some room to play with at the trade deadline. If a starter with a high salary...

The time has come for a Gleyber Torres lineup promotion

The Yankees won for the 11th time in 14 games last night because, once again, Gleyber Torres socked a clutch home run. The rookie has 13 homers in 45 games and eight of the 13 have either tied the game or given the Yankees the lead. Despite not being called up until three weeks into […] The post The time has come for a Gleyber Torres lineup promotion appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

NYY news: deGrom trade makes sense, but unlikely

deGrom trade unlikely; deGrom would be a great fit; Sanchez primed for turnaround; Remembering Guidry’s ‘78 season; Guidry thinks Severino will break K record; HOPE Week continues FanRag Sports | Jon Heyman: The talk of the town recently has been about a potential trade that would send Jacob deGrom to the Yankees from the Mets. The problem there, though, is that it’s a very unlikely trade. The biggest reason, according to one Yankees executive, is that the Mets won’t trade deGrom to the Yankees. The other? That the Yankees would be unwilling to part with either Gleyber Torres or...

Yankees Trade Deadline 2018: Hal Steinbrenner identifies pitching as area of upgrade

The Yankees will go after pitching this summer The Yankees have the best record in baseball, but if they want to hold onto it, the team will need to acquire some extra pitching. Jordan Montgomery is gone for the year, Masahiro Tanaka is hurt, and Sonny Gray has been frustratingly inconsistent. Despite Domingo German’s best effort, the priority should be to upgrade the rotation this summer. Thankfully, Hal Steinbrenner talked to the media yesterday, and that is exactly what he plans to do. This team didn’t put itself in the best position out of the gate. While the rotation seemed good on...

Why the Yankees are calling up Jonathan Loaisiga

Why the Yankees are calling up Jonathan Loaisiga

Calling up the 23-year-old straight from Double-A looks crazy. What could the Yankees be thinking? The Yankees are in a bind when it comes to starting pitching. You could argue it is a self-inflicted bind: it was a common refrain throughout the offseason that the Yankees could probably use some more pitching depth, and now, they are left undermanned with Jordan Montgomery and Masahiro Tanaka on the disabled list. Domingo German has done his best to fill Montgomery’s shoes, and tonight, the Yankees are turning to another inexperienced arm in Jonathan Loaisiga. Inexperienced might be...

He talked about the obvious, which is the Yankees’ need for starting pitching.

José Devers: Marlin on the Rise

José Devers: Marlin on the Rise

Coming over from New York in the Giancarlo Stanton deal, Devers has the potential to become a solid major league player in Miami. Coming over as one of the two prospects involved in the deal that sent Giancarlo Stanton to the New York Yankees, José Devers is flying under the radar in the Marlins farm system. The Dominican Devers was signed by the Yankees as an international free agent in 2016 and is recognizable by many as being the cousin of Boston Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers. Baseball genes clearly run in the family. The left-handed hitter stands at six feet tall with a listed...
