YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yankees preparing Johnny Barbato for potential starting role with Triple-A Scranton

Ah ha! I knew I was on to something. Right-hander Johnny Barbato recently told DJ Eberle the Yankees are preparing him for a potential starting pitcher role with Triple-A Scranton this season. The decision to make him a starter isn’t final yet, but Barbato is getting stretched out and has thrown multiple innings in each appearance this spring. The Yankees optioned Barbato out and...

Yankees super-prospect shaped by instant he nearly lost his dad

TAMPA — A year ago at this time, Blake Rutherford was displaying high-end skills that had him projected to be a first-round pick. And not knowing that life was going to present him with a terrifying experience. Scouts drooled over the 6-foot-3, 195-pound lefty-swinging center fielder from Simi Valley, Calif., as Rutherford starred for Chaminade College...

How Matt Holliday can boost the Yankees’ offense in 2017

One of the primary purposes of advanced statistics and tools like Statcast that have emerged in recent years is to better tell a story—the story of a particular player’s season or career. The story of why a team collectively struggles one year and does well the next with little roster manipulation. And sometimes they help tell the story we think we see with our eyes but have...

The Year Ahead in the Farm System

This is still a weird and awesome and completely true statement: the Yankees are loaded with exciting up-and-coming young talent. Last year’s trade deadline activity combined with breakouts from incumbent prospects give New York the game’s consensus No. 2 farm system behind the Braves. The 2016 draft helped too. That was cool. The Yankees are, in their words, a team in transition...

Sorting out the 35 players the Yankees still have in big league camp

Opening Day is now only six days away, and at this point the Yankees still have nearly a full 40-man roster worth of players in big league camp. They have 35 players in camp and the World Baseball Classic is part of the reason. Some players, like Donovan Solano, have been in camp without actually being in camp these last few weeks. The Yankees and every other team needed the extra...

How Mark Teixeira helped fuel Yankees' Greg Bird's big spring

The text came early in spring training, before Greg Bird proved he was healthy, before all the home runs, before he'd earned the starting job.  It was from Mark Teixeira, the man who retired, the man who was once standing between Bird and the title "Yankees first baseman." "It was some of the best advice," Bird said. That advice? "Just keep trusting yourself," Teixeira told Bird...

Hicks, Ref and Reub: Monday's sausage links

Sundown is near, the Yankiverse is heating-up from Cashman-made emissions, and Hell (aka Scranton) is facing a flood. Cuts are coming, and maybe the long prophesied trades of Rob Refsnyder and - gulp - Brett Gardner. By my count, we have 29 heads for 25 caps and, in particular, the outfield's jammed with broken heroes on a last-chance power drive. There's Gardy, Hicks, Judge, Ellsbury...

Aaron Hicks making Yankees’ outfield decision difficult

TAMPA — When Jacoby Ellsbury exited Sunday’s game after three innings, it was easy to believe the Yankees’ center fielder had a physical issue because in the last week of spring training, regulars routinely play at least through six frames. It turned out Ellsbury only wanted two at-bats before leaving. Yet from the time of...

New York Yankees: What will happen to Chris Carter?

On Wednesday, New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced that Greg Bird would be the team’s starting first baseman.  The former fifth-round pick has earned the role due to his exceptional offensive output this spring; through 47 at bats, he has a .447 batting average and seven home runs.  The fact that he has played so well after missing an entire season recovering from surgery...

Alex Rodriguez admits his response to PED scandal made him look foolish

Alex Rodriguez had rather harsh criticism over how his PED scandals went down, and it was aimed entirely at himself. Rodriguez addressed a group of University of Miami students at a Thursday luncheon, where he admitted that his conduct during and after his 2013 PED scandal and eventual suspension was rather embarrassing. “I think just being a big jerk, you know?” Rodriguez said...

Breaking down the New York Yankees’ next ‘big three’

Somehow, the New York Yankees and their young talent have made Spring Training meaningful. The Yanks own the best record in the majors at 19-7, but the real takeaways are the performances the team is getting from the “Baby Bombers.” After putting the league on notice last season, Gary Sanchez has continued to show promise, and both Greg Bird and Gleyber Torres have been exceptional...
