YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yankees flub chance to climb up in AL East with frustrating loss

HOUSTON — A large green scoreboard with white letters and numbers in left field was impossible to ignore for the Yankees on the field and in the dugout. And when the results from Baltimore, Toronto and Boston were posted the Yankees understood what their game against the Astros meant. A victory would allow the Yankees...

Game 101: Suddenly Important

The Yankees have gone 11-5 in their last 16 games and suddenly, these games are becoming increasingly important. Both the Red Sox and Blue Jays — the two wildcard teams at the moment — lost earlier today, so a win tonight would bring New York to within three games of the second wildcard spot. They have a ton of games left with Boston and Toronto too, you know. This team, man...

Yankees intent on moving Ivan Nova before deadline

The Yankees’ trade priority was Aroldis Chapman. He was a free agent at the end of this season who did not want to negotiate an extension now and for whom the team felt it could get far more in a trade than it gave up. With that deal completed and with the club playing better,...

Logan Morrison says Twitter has run its course for himself, other athletes

LOS ANGELES — Imagine trying to explain Twitter to someone 10 years ago. Think about it for a minute. It's not easy. "It's this thing, where you can only write a couple lines, but then you can quote other people, and there's news streams."It sounds ridiculous, of course we know what's happened the last few years, especially in sports. Twitter has become the de facto route between...

The Yankees will soon have to make some decisions about their outfield prospect logjam

When the season started, the Yankees were obviously very deep in left-handed hitting outfield prospects at Triple-A and Double-A. That is still the case even after Slade Heathcott was released a few weeks ago. The Yankees not only still have Ben Gamel, Mason Williams, Jake Cave, and Dustin Fowler, they just added another lefty hitting outfield prospect in Billy McKinney. He’s in...

As great as he’s been, Yankees shouldn’t consider Beltran a qualifying offer candidate

With eleven wins in their last 16 games, the Yankees are a season-high four games over .500 and firmly on the winning side of the ledger. They’ve had a winning record for a grand total of eleven days this season, believe it or not. It would be even fewer than that without Carlos Beltran‘s brilliance. He’s been, by far, the Yankees’ best and most consistent hitter this season...

Ellsbury racking up catcher's interference calls

Jacoby Ellsbury doesn't know why it's happening so often now, he says, because his swing's always been fundamentally the same. This season, though, he just keeps hitting the catcher's mitt with it.

Should the Yankees hold a fire sale?

As the ground still shakes from the Aroldis Chapman trade, a thought keeps entering my mind: Wow, I can’t believe how poorly I read this market. I penned an article a few weeks back, arguing that a swap of Andrew Miller for Adrian Gonzalez straight up would make sense for both teams, and boy was I wrong. Part of that was defensible; the calculus has changed since then. The...

Scouting the Prospects in the Aroldis Chapman Deal

I first laid eyes on Gleyber Torres in 2014 at the Rookie-level Arizona League. He was just about a year removed from signing a $1.7 million bonus the year before and, along with Eloy Jimenez, was that summer’s headliner in Mesa. Torres was polished for his age but he was slight of build and his tools were relatively muted compared to some of the other players from the 2013 J2...

Yankees nowhere closer to being buyers or sellers than last week

NEW YORK – The Yankees are approaching the trade deadline with the reluctance of an ordinary person selling a prized collection on eBay. They know they have to sell, but they keep finding ways to convince themselves they can hold on a little while longer. Unlike a collectible bobblehead, however, the Yankees can’t sit on their hands forever. They must decide on selling Carlos...
