Happy Halloween, everyone! Be safe out there. Demand chocolate at every stop. And if you’re going to a costume party, you’ve got to go all in. None of this “too old for it” nonsense. Of course you’re too old for it. That’s the point! Anyway, I think I’ve done this for a few years now. […] The post Halloween with the Yankees appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Before the end of the regular season, Jose Pirela put up impressive numbers in Triple-A, landed a spot on the 40-man roster, and got his first big league call-up. He undoubtedly emerged as a serious candidate for some sort of big league role next season, and he’s spent the past week further making his case […] The post Winter league notes: Pirela off to a strong start in Venezuela appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Very little surprise that Slade Heathcott, Mason Williams and John Ryan Murphy — who ranked 2nd, 3rd and 4th a year ago — have fallen out of the Top 10 entirely. Also very little surprise that Luis Severino has jumped to the head […] The post Baseball America releases its top 10 Yankees prospects appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.
Easiest way to really understand what the Yankees need is to take another look at what they have.

Closer David Robertson was one of 10 Yankees to officially become a free agent Thursday and he figures to be the club’s most intriguing available name in this pinstriped winter.
Bovada has released its early odds for the 2015 World Series. No surprise that the Yankees are not among the favorites. In fact, they’re barely in the top half of Major League Baseball. They’re given the same odds as the last-place Red Sox. Here’s Bovada’s list: Odds to win the 2015 World Series Los Angeles […] The post Surprise!

Just a few late afternoon notes on this first day of the offseason: • A source said this morning that the Yankees have been granted a fourth option year for outfielder Eury Perez, the 24-year-old claimed off waivers from the Nationals at the end of September.
