New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins: Series Preview

New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins: Series Preview

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees head west for three games in Minnesota The Yankees had their five-game win streak snapped in yesterday’s finale against the Colorado Rockies, but they’ll get a chance to get back on the horse tonight against the Minnesota Twins. They’ll be out west for three games. These two teams last faced off back in early-May, and the Yankees took two of three in the Bronx. They won’t face Twins’ ace Jose Berrios on this trip. Instead, they’ll face the middle of the Twins’ rotation. Let’s break it down: Game one CC Sabathia has pitching duties...

Photo by Rob Tringali/MLB Photos via Submit your answer in the FanPost section for the chance to see your story featured on the front page. The MLB trade deadline is nine days away and the Yankees have yet to make any significant July moves. Over the past few weeks, we’ve considered what their trade deadline strategy should be, thought about the best way to improve their pitching situation, and pondered what player they should move while they still have value. Here’s this week’s FanPost Friday prompt: What prospect should the Yankees keep off limits at the trade deadline? It is...

Yankees potential trade target: Trevor Bauer

Yankees potential trade target: Trevor Bauer

Peter G. Aiken The talented right-hander would fit right in with the Yankees in some ways, but would stick out like a sore thumb in others. Last week, reports surfaced that the Yankees were “high” on Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer. From a distance, their interest makes the utmost sense. With Luis Severino’s status still in question, New York could certainly use a frontline starting pitcher. If Cleveland makes Bauer available, there may be no stronger rotation option on the trade market than the 28-year-old right-hander. In some ways, a potential marriage between the Yankees and...

An ode to Mariano Rivera upon his induction

An ode to Mariano Rivera upon his induction

NorthJersey.com-USA TODAY NETWORK Let’s simply remember Rivera as he enters the Hall of Fame this weekend. There are 652 reasons for Yankees fans to be thankful for Mariano Rivera, but in the interest of time, we’ll keep it much shorter and straight to the point. Mariano “Mo” Rivera was born on November 29, 1969 in a small village in Panama called Puerto Caimito. In 1989, at the age of 20, Mo was signed by Yankees scout Chico Heron, who was referred to Mariano by teammates of his on the Panamanian travel team he played for. In today’s baseball, with an abundance of talent...

Yankees fall to Rockies in series finale

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports The Yanks failed to sweep the Rockies after poor outings by Paxton and the offense.

James Paxton took the mound for New York, having recorded a quality start in each of his last three appearances. German Marquez started for Colorado, looking to rebound after allowing 11 runs in his pervious start. Charlie Blackmon blasted a leadoff homer into the Yankees’ bullpen to get the scoring started early for the Rockies. James Paxton has now...

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Yankees fail to sweep. The Yankees had a chance to finish up this homestand with a three-game sweep of the Rockies, but failed to get the job done today. We’ll have a full recap up in a bit. Here are the highlights in the meantime: Winner of the Game Through the first five innings, the only Yankee with a hit to his name was DJ LeMahieu.

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees will look to sweep the Rockies to finish the home stand.

Yankees prospect Luis Medina is starting to control the situation

Photo by Michael Reaves/ Luis Medina has dramatically lowered his walk rate over his last seven starts, and now the most electric arm in the Yankees system is poised for a major step forward. Luis Medina’s reputation took shape shortly after signing with the Yankees during the 2015 international signing period. His fastball velocity spiked into the triple digits shortly before the July 2nd start of the new international signing period, making it look like the Yankees might have landed him as a bargain during a time when they faced international signing restrictions. More scouts saw...

Yankees potential trade target: Sam Dyson

Yankees potential trade target: Sam Dyson

Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports Can San Francisco’s second-best reliever help the Yankees? For a normal contender, fortifying the bullpen would be a high-priority goal for the trade deadline. The Yankees, however, can be a little more relaxed. The Bronx bullpen ranks first in FIP- and second in fWAR among their MLB cohorts, with Aroldis Chapman, Adam Ottavino, Tommy Kahnle, and Zack Britton all having solid-to-vintage years. Yet, while the Yankees’ bullpen is far from a liability, it’s not like help wouldn’t be appreciated. Dellin Betances isn’t going to return anytime soon,...
