Game 45: Going for No. 7

The Yankees are back at .500 thanks to their six-game winning streak. Getting to .500 was the easy part though. Building the record up and winning more games than you lose going forward is where it gets difficult. The Yankees can begin that process with a win tonight to stretch that winning streak to seven games. It would be their longest since last June. The good news is they...

Yankees express ‘concern’ after Mark Teixeira’s neck flares up

Is it time to start panicking about Chase Headley?

We’re creeping up on the end of the first trimester of the 2016 season, and a slow start is no longer just a slow start. Carlos Beltran had a slow start. Dellin Betances had a slow start. Chase Headley is having a bad season. But is it due mostly to bad luck or bad process? — THE BAD How bad has Chase Headley been this season? Among all qualified MLB third basemen, Headley...

Brian Cashman confirms Gary Sanchez has a “crack in his thumb”

Top catching prospect Gary Sanchez has a “crack in his thumb,” Brian Cashman confirmed to Shane Hennigan this afternoon. Sanchez is heading to New York for further evaluation. He took a foul tip to the hand during Triple-A Scranton’s game last night. Sanchez, 23, is hitting .297/.340/.536 (155 wRC+) with six homers in 34 games with the RailRiders this year.

Luis Severino and the possibility of too much velocity

This Sunday right-hander Luis Severino will make his first minor league rehab start as he works his way back from a mild triceps strain. He’ll be back on the mound only 16 days after suffering the injury, so it was indeed a mild strain. The Yankees weren’t downplaying it. Assuming all goes well Sunday, Severino could rejoin the rotation as soon as next week. Of course, Severino...

Rotation, Beltran spark Yankees' turnaround

With Tuesday night's 6-0 win over the Blue Jays, the Yankees are 22-22, .500 for the first time since April 14, when a loss to these very same Blue Jays knocked them to 4-4. Since that loss, the Yankees fell far, dropping as far as eight games below .500 on May 5. But the Yankees have turned everything around, winning 13 of their past 18 -- including six straight -- with a run differential...

Carlos Beltran may be phasing out A-Rod before he even returns

Don’t hurry back, Alex. Carlos Beltran has DH covered. Here’s why the Yankees demanded Alex Rodriguez bring his DH act to Trenton: Beltran is on fire as the designated hitter. Beltran knocked in two runs Tuesday night in the Yankees’ 6-0 victory over the clueless Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium. It was the Yankees’ sixth...

Yankees ask Nova to keep Jays in check

Toronto won eight times on the road against the Yankees last season, and 13 times overall, which were both single-season highs. It also marked the first time the Blue Jays won a season series in New York since 2003. That was last year, though, and after winning the series opener on Tuesday night, the Yankees will look to reverse the recent trend when right-hander Ivan Nova gets the...

How Alex Rodriguez’s injury has helped the New York Yankees

On May 3, Alex Rodriguez left the game after straining his hamstring running to first base on a ground out. A-Rod was put on the 15-day disabled list and was supposed to return Tuesday night against the Toronto Blue Jays, but he has suffered another setback. Though this may seem like a loss for the New York Yankees, they may have also benefited from A-Rod’s injury and could continue...

Throwing hard isn’t enough for Yankees

The fastball is the basic building block upon which all pitching is built. If you were to describe the act of pitching to an alien, or someone from Norway, you would probably say something to the effect of “the attempt to throw a ball hard into an imaginary box of sorts past someone trying to hit it with a bat”. That’s what a fastball is. You probably wouldn’t get into how...

Former Yankees OF Williams reinventing himself as a musician

WASHINGTON (AP) Bernie Williams stopped being a baseball player in 2006. Being a musician, however, is his lifelong endeavor. Williams' father brought a guitar back from a trip to Spain when Williams was 7, and he fell in love with music after the first few chords. ''I thought I was gonna be a musician,'' Williams said. ''This whole thing with the Yankees sort of came along, and...

The New York Yankees future is bright

At the beginning of the season, the New York Yankees seemed to be a team loaded with old washed-up players. They had just traded some of their most promising prospects to acquire Aroldis Chapman but had very little chance of going very far. Then, just a few weeks into the seasons, an array of injuries opened the door for some of the younger Yankees to move up and fill vacant spots...

Mark Teixeira Needs to Turn it Around

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is notorious for his slow starts during a season, but his 2016 slump is his worst to date. Through May 23rd, the switch hitter is batting a dismal .193, with only three home runs and 12 RBIs. Teixeira has been reaching base via walk, but that only brings his on-base percentage to .295. The Yankees have been playing better baseball as of late, but...

Are the New York Yankees Surging Back on Track?

The New York Yankees now sit one game under .500 after going 13-6 after an 8-16 start to the season. The Yankees have a huge opportunity ahead of them as they only sit 5 1/2 games back of first place and 12 of their next 13 games are against AL East opponents. Brian McCann stresses patience with the season as the Yankees have plenty of time to make up lost ground. “It’s a long...

Hal Steinbrenner is not his father. While the late George Steinbrenner generally acted rashly to stretches of bad baseball and was not afraid to fire — or certainly put pressure — on his managers, Hal is looking towards the guys who play. Steinbrenner recently backed his manager while simultaneously putting pressure on the players. “The coaches are doing a good job,...
