Yesterday, I graded Yankees backup infielder Tyler Austin. Today, we grade Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro, who may have had a decent year offensively, but was sabermetrically a disappointment. When the Yankees shipped off Adam Warren and Brendan Ryan to the Chicago Cubs for Starlin Castro, they were filling the hole Robinson Cano left when he […]

Yesterday, we graded Yankees back-up catcher Austin Romine. Today, we round out the catching position and grade Gary Sanchez, who made his mark on the team after playing for two months.  Gary Sanchez wasn’t on the Yankees for a long time. In fact, he was only there for two months. But that […]

Yesterday, we graded Yankees starting catcher turned DH Brian McCann. Today, we’ll grade Austin Romine, who did a decent job as the Yankees backup catcher. While McCann saw less playing time behind the plate with Gary Sanchez in the picture, Romine saw less playing time altogether. When the Yankees traded away John Ryan […]

Yesterday, we graded reliever Adam Warren, who bounced back from his terrible start with the Chicago Cubs and thrived in the Yankees bullpen. Today, we move to the Yankees offense where we’ll grade Yankees catcher Brian McCann,who began as a starter before being demoted by Gary Sanchez. When the Yankees signed Brian McCann, […]

Yesterday, we graded starter Masahiro Tanaka and handed out our first “A” of the Report Card series. Today, we reach the end of the pitching portion of the Report Card and grade Adam Warren.Warren’s return to the Yankees bullpen is a funny one; he was traded last offseason for Starlin Castro before he […]

Yesterday, we graded Luis Severino, who struggled in the Yankees starting rotation but thrived in the Yankees bullpen. Today, we stay in the bullpen and grade Chasen Shreve, who didn’t have as good of a year as anticipated, but at least he avoided a September implosion of catastrophic proportions. Chasen Shreve was […]

Yesterday, we graded CC Sabathia‘s performance in the Yankees starting rotation. Today, we move onto Luis Severino, who was terrible in the Yankees rotation, but somehow found his niche in the Yankees bullpen. In Spring Training last February, Luis Severino wasn’t one of the question marks to enter the season. However, once […]

Yesterday afternoon, we graded Yankees starter Michael Pineda on his turbulent 2016 campaign. Today, we’ll move onto CC Sabathia, who many figured would have another poor season but pleasantly surprised the organization and the fanbase.  When CC Sabathia entered Spring Training, many figured Sabathia was going to have another rough season. However, Sabathia surprised everyone […]

Yesterday, we graded Bryan Mitchell after his five start stint with the Bronx Bombers in September. Today, we’ll discuss starter Michael Pineda, who had an interesting season to say the least. The Yankees relied on Pineda in their rotation, but with every start, Pineda became the Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde pitcher; you never knew which […]
