LATEST STORIES FROM BRONX PINSTRIPES

On this day in Yankees history – 1936

On May 24, 1936 in a game against the Athletics, Yankees second baseman Tony Lazzeri becomes the first Major League player to hit two grand slams in one game as the Yanks annihilate the A’s 25-2. The two salamis also help Lazzeri set an American League record for most RBIs in a game with 11. That month he also set records for most home runs in three consecutive games (6) and...

Yankees game 44 preview (5/24/15)

Chris Capuano (0-1, 12.00 ERA) and Yovani Gallardo (3-6, 4.26 ERA) close things out at the stadium on Bernie Williams Day. This will be Capuano’s second start of the year off the DL, the last one being not so impressive. He went just three innings against the Royals giving up four runs on four hits throwing just 63 pitches. He faced Texas twice last year, both times out of the...

The Bronx is Berning: Yanks retire 51

In 1989 the Texas Rangers sent Wilson Alvarez, Scott Fletcher and Sammy Sosa to the Chicago White Sox for Harold Baines and Fred Manrique. Why is this significant, you ask? Well, it was the summer of ’89, the New York Yankees almost traded Bernie Williams, Kevin Maas and Kevin Mmahat to the South Side for Baines. While Baines did have a solid major-league career, it will be Williams...

Lindgren was the Yankees’ first draft choice in the 2014 draft (2nd round selection), and in just one season advanced all the way...

Happy birthday Tommy John!

bleedingyankeeblue.blogspot.com A big @BronxPinstripes “Happy Birthday” goes out to the former Yankees southpaw and the man behind the famous surgery name, Tommy John! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Mr. John a couple of times over the past few years and let me tell you, what a sweetheart he is. Of course, I felt a little guilty bombarding him with a type of hug that you should...

What Pineda Needs to Improve

Michael Pineda‘s May 10th performance against the Orioles was historically good. His sixteen strikeouts were the most by any pitcher since David Wells fanned that many on July 30, 1997, and he became only the fourth Yankees pitcher to rack up that many K’s in a game, joining Wells, David Cone, and, of course, Ron Guidry. Pineda’s outing was also notable for its brevity. Including...

Aaron Judge: A baseballer in a footballer’s body

It’s no secret that the Yankees’ farm system has been rather lackluster since producing the Core Four, or Fab Five including Bernie. Brett Gardner, Robinson Cano and Dellin Betances are the only players worth noting in the last decade. But there’s something brewing down on the farm the last few years and I can’t wait until it gets here. I’m talking of course about Aaron...

Mason Williams on the way up

With Slade Heathcott‘s call up to the big leagues, the Yankees announced earlier today that Mason Williams has been called up to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre from Double-A Trenton. The promotion is well earned for Willams, who’s resurrected his standing as a top Yankees prospect since falling off from his early success in the organization after he was drafted. Williams was...

The Yankees and starter utilization

View image | gettyimages.com There has been a lot of chatter since Spring Training about the possibility of the Yankees moving to a six-man pitching rotation. The argument in favor is generally that pitchers would be more rested and could go farther into games and would not wear down as much as the season progressed. But, is there a better way that would provide more benefit...

Happy 30th birthday Andrew Miller

Happy birthday to our closer Andrew Miller who turns 30 years young today.

His 13 saves are tied for third best in the League and through 18 games has given up just four hits. His ERA is a measly 0.98 and combined with Dellin Betances‘ 0.00 ERA they...

When worlds collide – the great Yankee Seinfeld moments

We here at Bronx Pinstripes are rather fond of Seinfeld, if you couldn’t tell by the references peppered throughout our articles. So you could imagine our glee back in the day when worlds collided and Yankee players made cameos on the show. Despite being a big Mets fan, Jerry Seinfeld had no problem putting Yankees on his show about nothing. With Bernie Williams Day coming up...

5 Things That Angered Me From Last Nights Yankees Loss

The Yankees are in a tail spin right now; they’ve lost 6 of 8 so far on this road trip (I guess shaving the mustaches didn’t work?). Last nights 10 inning loss to the Nationals really got me fired up for a number of reasons, but before I get into it, please do not blame Andrew Miller for that loss. Ok, lets get into it…5 things that angered me from last night: View image...

He allowed three runs and seven hits with seven strikeouts. Jose Lobaton and Yunel Escobar are the only Nats who have faced Warren, they are a combined...

Slade Heathcott gets called up

Jacoby Ellsbury landed on the 15 Day DL due to a right knee strain suffered in the 8-6 loss to the Nats. In a corresponding move the team called up outfielder Slade Heathcott from Triple A. Heathcott has had a resurgence of sorts in the minors this season after being removed from the 40 man roster over the winter. In 36 games this season, he is hitting .280 with one homer and 17...

Bronx Bombers home run alert

Keeping tabs on every home run for the New York Yankees this season. The Yanks lost their mustaches, Jacoby Ellsbury, Andrew Miller’s flawless ERA and the game. It was pretty brutal, as a 6-2 Yankees advantage evaporated and ended with a doink shot home run off the right-field foul pole and Ryan Zimmerman and the Washington Nationals walked off with an 8-6 victory. Going yard for...

The Yankees will option up CF Slade Heathcott (.280/.331/.353) to take his place. Getty ImagesAll we know right now is that it’s...

Masahiro Tanaka to make rehab start Thursday

After landing on the disabled list at the end of April with right wrist tendonitis and a mildly strained forearm, New York Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka is set to make his first rehab start. The 26-year-old right hander threw a 29-pitch bullpen session on Monday, and after there was no complications, it was likely that Tanaka would take the mound in a rehab start at some point near...
