Last year the Yankees had a few rookies who came through in a big way for them. Yangervis Solarte played well enough to be paired with a minor leaguer to get the Yankees Chase Headley.

2014 Rewind: Yankees turn triple play against Tampa Bay Rays

If there's anything more rare than winning a World Series championship three years in a row--although it has been done by the Yankees--it's turning a triple play to get out of an inning. The Yankees turned one in 2013 against the Baltimore Orioles and in 2014 their next victim was the Tampa Bay Rays. With the ...

This year's Yankees team has been fairly unimpressive with injuries decimating the pitching staff and an offense that largely hasn't lived up to the hype.
