Yankees VP of baseball operations Mark Newman had a lot to say about the Yankees prospects yesterday. Beat writer Chad Jennings separated them into posts on the pitching and position players. Here they are in short: Pitchers Aroldis Chapman: Newman said the reports were exactly what he expected: Huge fastball. Spotty command. Inconsistent secondary pitches. ...
Today seems like a pretty quiet day on the Yankees’ front, so I figured it would be a good time to start doing Joe Girardi’s job by picking the 25 guys he will carry to Boston on April 4 on opening day. Barring any injuries or roster changes, here are the no-doubters: Rotation: CC Sabathia A.J. Burnett Andy Pettitte Javier Vazquez Joba ...
The Yankees are reportedly interested in signing free agent Jermaine Dye, according to Phil Rogers, and it wouldn’t be the first time Brian Cashman showed some interest in the soon-to-be-36-year-old right fielder. Dye is coming off a rough year with the White Sox. Let’s look at his last three years with the White Sox: Year G R 2B HR RBI SO AVG OBP SLG 2007 138 68 34 28 78 107 .254 .317 .486 2008 154 96 41 34 96 104 .292 .344 .541 2009 141 68 19 27 81 108 .250 .340 .453 That’s definitely respectable ...
I think it’s pretty clear the No. 5 starter will either be Joba Chamberlain or Phil Hughes. Having both set up for Mariano Rivera sounds nice, but it would be a lot nicer if one of those pitchers panned out to be a top starter in the league. Neither will get a chance to reach ...
When the Red Sox signed John Lackey, there was no question the Yankees’ biggest rivals had the better rotation. But after the Yanks picked up Javier Vazquez in a trade with the Braves, the rotations look even again from a distance. Since I don’t expect any more additions to either rotation, I ...
Why is everyone automatically deeming Javier Vazquez the No. 4 starter? Just because he’s an addition, doesn’t me has to wait at the end of the line. CC Sabathia is still the ace, definitely. However, I’d argue Vazquez has been just as good, if not better, than A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte over the past ...
There hasn’t been a more active general manager in baseball than Brian Cashman in the year 2009. Cashman’s latest deal was centered around ex-Yankee starter Javier Vazquez in a five-player, two-team deal yesterday morning. Vazquez was effective for the Yankees in the first half of 2004 before an arm injury hampered his second half. After giving ...
Is it just me, or are the 2010 Yankees beginning to look a lot like the Yankees who didn’t win a World Series from 2001-2008? Nick Johnson was a likable guy but he had trouble staying healthy and Javier Vazquez didn’t pitch up to par — especially for a guy with high expectations. I wasn’t following ...
Javier Vazquez was given just one year to prove he could handle pitching in New York, but he couldn’t. Now, he’ll get another shot, as he was traded to the Yankees for Melky Cabrera and Mike Dunn. The Yankees also received lefty reliever Boone Logan from the Braves, but his numbers aren’t very pretty. Judging from the ...
Some hot stove insiders (Ken Rosenthal, Buster Olney, Ken Davidoff and Mark Feinsand) are tweeting away tonight, and all are saying the Yankees are in “active negotiations” for a starting pitcher tonight — not named Aaron Harrang. Rosenthal and Davidoff are calling this a trade, so that could be referring to Mike ...
