When Slade Heathcott saw his name penciled in the starting lineup this afternoon, he felt it was too good to be true. Just last offseason, he thought he was never going to play baseball again, especially after the Yankees designated him for assignment while he was recovering from yet another […]

Yankees vs. Rangers pitching matchups

Stephen Drew Yankees 14
We’ve played approximately 25% of the 2015 season, so it’s safe to start judging who has done well and who has been a disappointment so far. Today we’ll talk about the disappointing players for the Yankees and tomorrow we’ll discuss who has been impressive. 1. Stephen Drew The Yankees gave […]

Four disappointing players for the Yankees so far

Masahiro+Tanaka+New+York+Yankees+v+Tampa+Bay+gk5CZ54IjJgl 1
Based off what I saw on television tonight,  Masahiro Tanaka looked sharp through his three innings of work. His splitter was great, his fastball had good command and he looked like the Tanaka of old before going on the DL with a forearm and wrist injury. So how did Tanaka […]

Masahiro Tanaka feels good after rehab start

Masahiro+Tanaka+New+York+Yankees+v+Detroit+7FbbNvOPobDl 3
Masahiro Tanaka is slated to start for the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees this evening, and the YES Network is airing the game at 6:30 p.m. Tanaka is scheduled to throw three innings or 45 pitches and the Yankees plan to give Tanaka two more starts before he rejoins the rotation. “It’s […]

Masahiro Tanaka making rehab start for Scranton Wilkes-Barre

Chase+Headley+New+York+Yankees+v+Boston+Red+6C6hutwqk4Gl 13
It’s still relatively early in the season and a big second half can change everything, but so far it’s safe to say that Chase Headley has been a total bust. The man the Yankees paid $52 million over four years has been a let down in every aspect of the game. […]

Chase Headley has been bad, real bad

Masahiro+Tanaka+New+York+Yankees+v+Tampa+Bay+PIbyaxtdRzdl 6
It’s the second off-day this week for the Yankees, but if you need a baseball fix this afternoon, the Yankees announced they are going to air the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders game tonight. But why would fans want to watch a minor league game on an off-day? Because Masahiro Tanaka is […]

After a brutal road-trip, the Yankees were hoping to end it on a high note. Unfortunately, the Yankees dropped the final game of this two-game set against the Nationals, losing 3-2 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. The Yankees scored both of their runs in the first inning on a […]

Yankees fall to Nationals 3-2

The Yankees made a few roster moves early this morning, so here’s the quick rundown of what they were: — The Yankees have placed OF Jacoby Ellsbury on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee sprain. — The Yankees have signed OF Slade Heathcott to a Major League contract […]

Roster Moves: Ellsbury, Heathcott and Whitley

Jacoby+Ellsbury+New+York+Yankees+v+Tampa+Bay+W39vT2JZHHJl 20
It’s no doubt Jacoby Ellsbury was one of the most important pieces in the Yankees lineup, but with him on the shelf for at least the next two weeks, the Yankees are going to have to move on without him and hope his right knee injury isn’t something that could […]

Yankees must move on without Jacoby Ellsbury

After feeling refreshed following an off-day, the Yankees scored six runs and were on their way to a win. Unfortunately, the pitching wasn’t able to hold the lead and the Yankees fell to the Washington Nationals in 10 innings 8-6 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. The Yankees scored four […]
