YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

DotF: Refsnyder plays right; Sanchez, Mateo, and Andujar all go deep

Both RHP Domingo Acevedo and LHP Josh Rogers were mentioned in this week’s edition of Baseball America’s The List for their big strikeout-to-walk ratios. It’s not behind the paywall, so make sure you check it out. Triple-A Scranton (5-2 win over Buffalo) CF Ben Gamel: 0-5, 1 RBI C Gary Sanchez: 2-5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 K, 1 E (missed catch) — 14-for-48 (.250) in his...

Brian Cashman warns his bosses ‘not happy’ as GM takes blame

BALTIMORE — Brian Cashman put the underachieving Yankees’ roster together and is more than willing to accept a large part of the blame for the club being among the worst in baseball. What he wasn’t in the mood to do Tuesday night was speak for Hal Steinbrenner and the managing general partner of a team...

Girardi: Chapman will make 'bullpen longer'

Aroldis Chapman can't cure what has ailed the Yankees' sluggish offense, but the club is still looking forward to plugging the flame-throwing left-hander in for some save situations, beginning next week.

Game 24: Losing Sucks, How About A Win?

The Yankees are back in action tonight with the first of three games against the Orioles. This is also the start of a 20 games in 20 days stretch, and given the way the Yanks have played of late, this is already a make or break stretch. Thirteen wins in those 20 games seems like the bare minimum to me. Anything less than that likely means they won’t gain any ground in the standings...

The throw-in revelation who may doom Yankees’ Eovaldi trade

We are forever trying to determine “who won that trade” in an instant, when there are often shifts and turns over time, making full judgment hard until all the information is in. In 1996, the Yankees were clobbered instantly for an in-season trade with Milwaukee that brought damaged goods in Pat Listach and a guy...

Who gets the boot if the Yankees go into sell mode?

You can read Part I here. From New York Yankees president Randy Levine lamenting revenue sharing and other clubs’ ability to spend more wisely than the Yankees with what he sees as “their” money to manager Joe Girardi expressing a newfound opposition to defensive shifts, there’s a tone permeating the organization that epitomizes that of the sorest of sore losers. The game...

New York Yankees: April Report Card

April is a month where a team works out its kinks and tries to establish an identity for their upcoming season. If that’s so, the New York Yankees showed the baseball world a lot, including having the lowest-scoring offense in baseball. Yes, you read that correctly. The Yankees finished April a dismal 8-14, placing last in the American League East, the only team without 10 wins...

Cashman on possible shake-up: “There are no changes in store”

The Yankees are in a bad place right now. They’ve lost five straight and 13 of their last 17 games to fall to 8-15 on the young season. Only the Twins, Astros, and Braves have worse records. Their -31 run differential is fifth worst in baseball as well. Now that Dellin Betances is giving up dingers, basically nothing is going right. Needless to say, whenever the Yankees struggle...

The Chase Headley conundrum in the Bronx

There is a gaping black hole in the New York Yankees lineup, and his name is Chase Headley. All hope for a productive at-back cannot escape the gravitational pull that accompanies the Bronx Bombers’ third baseman each time he steps to the plate these days. Sometimes he bats ninth, sometimes he bats as high as sixth, but no matter his spot in the order, Headley has been an ongoing...

The Anatomy of Losing 9 of 12

As of this writing, the Yankees are a bad team. Over the past two weeks, they are - by winning percentage - the third worst team in baseball. It's no secret, to be sure, but it still feels strange to put it in writing, and see the words staring back at me. The worst part of it may well be that the Yankees are bad at everything right now. How did we get here? The Yankees are...

Are Yankees’ constant shifts messing with Didi Gregorius?

BALTIMORE — After a tough first two months a year ago when he replaced Derek Jeter at shortstop, Didi Gregorius tightened up defensively and improved considerably at the plate. The pressure of taking over for Jeter vanished and Gregorius played well in spring training. Fifteen days into April, the left-handed hitter was batting .286 (8-for-28)....

Should the New York Yankees Consider Moving on from Manager Joe Girardi?

The New York Yankees have fallen to six games behind first place with an 8-15 record after the team was swept by the Boston Red Sox this past weekend. The Yankees production at the plate and pitching has been extremely poor and the team is not showing much energy going into each game. The Yankees must consider a change whether it is coaching or players, but a move that would surely...

Alex Rodriguez dries bat on crotch

After spending years in the league, it appears New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez may have found a new plate routine to get him going. His bat looked to be a bit moist during an at-bat in the third inning of the game, so he fixed the problem. How’d he do it? By drying the bat on his manhood zone. Sure enough, it worked. He blasted a two-run homer later in the at-bat. [Larry Brown Sports]

Weekend Series Preview: Yankees vs. Red Sox

The Red Sox come into this weekend’s three game series against the Yankees at 12-10,  one and a half games back in the AL East and three ahead of New York. They have been more or less carried by their offense in the early going, slashing .272/.334/.485 through their first 22 contests. Their .269 TAv is good for ninth in the majors. Their pitching has continued to be a major weakness...

Joe Girardi doesn’t like the shift, but he uses the heck out of it

The growing angst in baseball appears to be directed at the use of the defensive shift and its increasing presence in the game. It seems the only people you hear complain about it are the ones who are affected the most by it in a negative way. Feel free to file New York Yankees skipper Joe Girardi in that category. “It’s illegal defense, just like basketball,” Girardi said...

Writers have spent countless words trying to crack the code on the mystical Nathan Eovaldi—he of all the talent and none of the results.
