DELLIN BETANCES RUMORS

The re-emergence of Dellin Betances

(June 5, 2015-Rich Schultz/Getty Images North America) With the departure of decade-long (and then some) closer, Mariano Rivera, the New York Yankees had much searching to do. Thus, the Yankees added Andrew Miller, a left-handed relief pitcher, to their crowded bullpen, in an effort to find a new closer role. Miller was then converted into what he once was years before, a closing...

New York Yankees’ Dellin Betances reaches 200 strikeouts

That was fast, is probably what most people are thinking when they hear that Dellin Betances has reached 200 strikeouts in only his second full year in the league. That is quite the achievement for such a young kid. The most impressive thing is that he normally pitches one inning and he doesn’t even pitch everyday. It seems as if every time he goes out on the mound for his setup...

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...

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...

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...

Fantasy Baseball: Top non-closer relief pitchers

Every fantasy baseball owner knows that the most valuable relief pitcher is the closer. In 12-team and deeper leagues, typically every closing pitcher is owned. When a team makes a change to the closing role, fantasy owners turn into hawks trying to be the first to pick the new closer up. But what about relief pitchers that aren’t in the closing role? Are they still valuable in...
