Which 2 Yankees prospects made ESPN's top 100 list?

It's that time of year. The time for prospecting. People with much scouting experience and knowledge of player development release their lists of the top 100 (give or take however many they want). Some have merit, some don't. One person who does hold sway and should be listened to is ESPN's Keith Law.

Could there be a happy-enough ending to A-Rod’s career?

This morning’s Pinch Hitter post shouldn’t be asking for too much, but it might be the least likely scenario in this whole Alex Rodriguez mess. A sincere and believable apology? True and total forgiveness? Any sort of happy ending for Rodriguez, the Yankees, and the game of baseball? It’s a nice wish, and perhaps a […] The post Could there be a happy-enough ending to A-Rod’s career? appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

On the 40-man: Andrew Miller

Up next in our look at every player on the Yankees 40-man roster is the team’s newest big-money reliever, a guy who looked like a bust as a rotation prospect before moving to the bullpen and becoming a dominant force. He is, in a lot of ways, a left-handed Dellin Betances. ANDREW MILLER Age on […] The post On the 40-man: Andrew Miller appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

How should the Yankees handle the final out in 2015?

Given a restructured bullpen full of late-inning experience but light on ninth-inning experience, Yankees manager Joe Girardi was asked last month whether it’s important that the bullpen have defined roles heading into 2015. In other words, is it important to pick out a closer, or could the Yankees simply mix and match at the end […] The post How should the Yankees handle the final out in 2015? appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.
