A Look at the New York Yankees’ Potential Starting Rotation

The New York Yankees have struggled to put together a dominant starting rotation, since their last World Series win in 2009. While they have had a few impressive starters over that span of time, Joe Girardi has not had the three or four dominant pitchers that he has needed to fill out a truly strong rotation. Going into the 2016 season, the Yankees will once again be faced with multiple...

Brian McCann 'loves' Yankees rotation, including this dark horse candidate

Mitchell, 24, made two starts in 2015 NEW YORK -- The Yankees' starting pitching rotation is basically set for 2016. It will look probably something like this: 1. Masahiro Tanaka 2. Luis Severino (or swap these two) 3. Michael Pineda 4. Nathan Eovaldi 5. CC Sabathia As long long as no one is hurt in spring training, that's probably close to how...

New York Yankees: Things to watch as pitchers and catchers report

Just a little over two weeks until pitchers and catchers report for spring training. Not much has changed for the New York Yankees in their rotation or bullpen. There are a few things to look out for in the coming weeks. The first being the health of Masahiro Tanaka‘s elbow. He has had a full off-season to rehab his elbow and rest it. There are a lot of scouts and analysts around...

Michael Pineda and Nathan Eovaldi are not actually the same person

When you are building a starting rotation it is usually wise to fill it with five different human beings. That’s par for the course and teams don’t tend to deviate from it. Four-man rotations can overburden arms, and cloning is far too expensive to be a feasible roster-building option. However, the New York Yankees have two guys that are suspiciously similar. Their different...

Nathn Eovaldi and Yankees avoid arbitation

The Yankees and right handed pitcher Nathan Eovaldi have avoided arbitration after agreeing on a one-year contract worth $5.6 million on Tuesday.

Prospects That Could Make An Impact in 2016

The Yankees have started to make an attempt to get younger. Last year, they traded for Nathan Eovaldi and Didi Gregorious, gave rookies Luis Severino and Greg Bird prominent roles, and avoided trading top prospects. The goal of building a team that can have short term and long term success, which is what the Yankees are trying to accomplish, often starts with the use of major league...

Necessary Moves: Brett Gardner, New York Yankees

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective. A player can be deemed movable for any of the following reasons: production (or lack thereof), current and future...

On June 16th, 2015, Nathan Eovaldi returned to Marlins Park to show the Marlins what they missed out on by trading him. Eovaldi didn’t get past the first inning, recording just two outs before being removed with an ugly eight runs allowed on nine hits. It was the worst outing of his career, underscoring the worst start to a season of his career. Through 13 starts, Eovaldi...

Noah Syndergaard was Aroldis Chapman for one night

That a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball gains velocity as he heads to the bullpen is not a new phenomenon. At this point, it is a strategy. When a pitcher cannot last five innings consistently or fails to develop a necessary off-speed pitch, the pitcher is sent to the bullpen to see if his stuff will “play up” in shorter outings, allowing him to air out the fastball...
