DELLIN BETANCES RUMORS

On this day in Yankees history – 1998

On May 17, 1998 David Wells was perfect and pitched the 15th perfect game in MLB history. He blanked the Minnesota Twins 4-0 and became just the second Yankee pitcher to throw a perfecto, the first to do it in the regular season. In front of 49,820 fans, including a 10 year old Dellin Betances, Wells retired all 27 batters he faced in 2 hours and 40 minutes. In classic Boomer fashion...

Betances and Miller Seal Win for the Yankees

NEW YORK, NY – APRIL 27: Andrew Miller #48 of the New York Yankees pitches against the Tampa Bay Rays during their game at Yankee Stadium on April 27, 2015 in New York City. (Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images) One of the keys to a strong baseball team is a great bullpen. When the bulk of your starting rotation usually can’t go longer than five or six innings, the bullpen becomes...

New York Yankees: Bullpen keeps team out in front

Dellin Betances With an aging, injury-prone lineup and a starting rotation full of question marks, the New York Yankees weren’t expected to make too much noise in the American League East. Competing in a division that includes the defending champion Orioles, the greatly improved Blue Jays and Red Sox and the Rays, a popular sleeper pick, it’s a small miracle that the Bronx...

Time for Yankees’ rotation to help bullpen

The New York Yankees are 20 games into the season and find themselves in first place in the American League East for the first time since May 2014. With a 12-8 record, the Yankees have put aside a 1-4 start and a big reason for their success is an extremely talented bullpen.Dellin BetancesPhoto credit: Keith Allison via FlickrYes, the Yankees have received some nice starts from their...

Dellin Betances, Dominant and Deceptive

I don’t have to be talked into writing posts about Dellin Betances. If I just supplied 10 consecutive GIFs of his fastball followed by his breaking ball, we’d probably all walk away happy (don’t worry, there will be plenty of GIFs). It’s special when a pitcher comes along and dominates major league hitters with just two […]

Will Dellin Betances be the New York Yankees’ next great closer?

Spring training is finally under way and baseball fans are rejoicing. While there are many interesting debates going on such as Alex Rodriguez’s early return and C.C.’s weight gain, the common question continues to arise: who will close for the New York Yankees? Previous closer, David Robertson, was a free agent and decided to sign with the Chicago White Sox for $46 million over...

Who should be the New York Yankees closer?

In 2013, the Yankees lost an iconic player who is arguably the best closer of all time. This Yankee pitcher, Mariano Rivera, currently holds the MLB record for career saves with an astonishing 652 saves. When he retired, the Yankees faced a tough decision as to who would be their future closer. For the 2014 season, Joe Girardi opted to go with a homegrown Yankee pitcher, David Robertson...

New York Yankees: Three honorable All-Stars

Three Yankees: one veteran, two rookies will represent their team for the American League All-Star team. Selected by fans and players, Derek Jeter, Masahiro Tanaka, and Dellin Betances have officially been named 2014 All-Stars! I personally love the All-Star game. I know it doesn’t mean much, but I always like the idea of having different players at the top of their league come...

Dellin Betances is the Future of Pitcher Usage

  New York Yankees pitcher at after a Yankees – Angels game, 2011. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) In almost every game for the Yankees, there lurks a 26 year old who more closely represents Sasquatch than a bullpen pitcher.  Said pitcher, Dellin Betances, and the Yankees are revolutionizing the game with very few casual fans outside of the Yankees fan base even realizing this phenom exists...

Betances Continues to Dazzle

Aside from maybe Yangervis Solarte, 26-year-old right hander Dellin Betances has been the most pleasant surprise for the New York Yankees. In a time when the pitching staff is ravished by injuries Betances has stepped up and become a bright spot for the bullpen. The once coveted starter now turned reliever has been punishing batters all season with his electric 97 MPH fastball and...
