- The Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians are set to battle tomorrow night as one of the two teams aims to end their World Series drought. And that means former Yankees teammates Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman are competing against one another for the first time since both were traded in the middle of the 2016 season.
A third former Yankee, Alex Rodriguez, was asked which reliever he prefered in the World Series. While Rodriguez praised Chapman, he had higher regards for
- Healthy again, Dillon Tate is getting some extra work as a reliever with the Arizona Fall League's Scottsdale Scorpions. Though he gave up four runs in five innings over his first four appearances, he has flashed the fastball and slider that made him the first first-round pick in UC Santa Barbara history and earned him a $4.2 million bonus.
- 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 by being an effective starter for the Bronx Bombers, to the point where Sabathia was

- 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 person you were going to get.
Michael Pineda was slotted into the rotation at the beginning of the year, and the Yankees expected

- Yesterday, we graded Tommy Layne, who surprised everyone by being a reliable asset in the Yankees bullpen. Today, we grade Bryan Mitchell, who went from being considered for the Yankees bullpen to actually being in the starting rotation following the injury to Nathan Eovaldi. He only pitched in five games, but Mitchell sure made them count, and may have proved that he was ready to join the rotation next season.
Bryan Mitchell only made five starts this season, versus the 20

- Yesterday, we graded Yankees reliever Nick Goody, who had an up and down season for the Yankees. Today, we’ll grade Tommy Layne, who was acquired during the middle of the season and impressed out of the Yankees bullpen.
Like many of the bullpen pieces, Tommy Layne was a temporary fixture in the Yankees bullpen. And over the course of the final two months, Layne made a name for himself. Overall, Layne had a decent year for the Bronx Bombers, going 2-0 with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.063

- Yesterday, we graded Yankees reliever Tyler Clippard, who had actually put together a good second half for the Bronx Bombers. Today, we’ll grade another player who was on the “Scranton Shuttle” and his name is Nick Goody. Goody pitched 29 innings for the Yankees and while there was some good, overall he wasn’t extremely impressive.
Nick Goody was constantly brought up and down from Triple-A to New York as a bullpen piece. Unfortunately, he had some months of br
- Ultimate Standings: High costs, World Series drought drop Yankees
- The New York Yankees wanted to try to fill the holes of their team internally. However, the team might be willing to open their checkbook if it meant getting a power bat as the Yankees DH.
According to Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball, the New York Yankees are in the mix to land Edwin Encarnacion this offseason. Despite the Yankees being in the mix, Heyman said Boston Red Sox are more likely to land the slugger.
Encarnacion, 33, has been with the Toronto Blue Jays for the last eight

Today, we’ll talk about Tyler Clippard, who was traded to the Yankees on August 1st, the final day of the trade deadline. This wasn’t the first time Clippard was on the Yankees; Clippard did a stint with the Bronx Bombers in 2007 before he was traded to the Washingto
- Ex-Yankee Kuroda to retire after Japan Series
- The Yankees have said time and time again that it was likely Brian McCann was going to be with the Bronx Bombers in 2017.
However, the Yankees do have a problem: they have too many catchers on the roster and not enough room for all of them. The Yankees don’t really want to move McCann as he has some value to the ball club, but McCann also has value on the trade market. But would McCann, who has a full-no trade clause, accept a deal anywhere?
He might accept a trade wit

Initially, Luis Cessa was part of the coveted “Scranton Shuttle”, where the Yankees would replace bullpen pieces on a consistent basis. Howe
- Japanese pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, who spent seven seasons in the Major Leagues, announced Tuesday he will retire at the end of the season.
- Brian McCann strapped on his shin guards for the final time this season on Oct. 1 as the Yankees put the finishing touches on a 7-3 victory over the Orioles, catching the ninth inning after coming off the bench as a pinch-hitter. It remains to be seen whether that was McCann's final game in pinstripes or a sign of things to come in 2017.
- With the 2016 season behind us, it’s time to start handing out end of the year report cards to our players on the 25-man roster. Every day, I’ll write about a player and evaluate their season before giving them a letter grade from A to F . I’ll start with pitching, then the catchers, infielders, outfielders and so forth. Today, we’ll start with Dellin Betances, who was once again an All-Star but had a disastrous September due to his ineffectiveness as
- Welcome to the second week of the 2016 offseason. As I do every offseason, I dedicate every Sunday to quickly recap everything that happened to the Yankees over the last week. This week, Brian Cashman revealed he had no regrets in trading his two main bullpen peices, CC Sabathia had surgery on his knee, 9 Yankees are slated to go to arbitration, Greg Bird has returned to baseball activity and Major League Baseball has changed the qualifying offer from $15.8 Million to a whoppng $17.2
- Prior to the 2016 season, many named Greg Bird the heir to Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira. But a shoulder injury resulted Bird in undergoing surgery which ended his 2016 campaign before it even started.
Nine months later, Bird is playing baseball again in the Arizona Fall League. The Arizona Fall League and Bird usually wouldn’t mesh together, considering the league is for players who have no Major League experience whatsoever. But Bird was truly excited to get back to play
- Scouting the AFL: Yankees prospects Kaprielian, Torres looking good
- Gleyber Torres may be one of the younger players in this year's Arizona Fall League, but you would never know it based on the 19-year-old shortstop's impressive showing in the season's first week. The Yankees' No. 2 prospect delivered a bases-loaded walk-off single to lead Scottsdale past Glendale, 8-7, on Friday.

- Major League Baseball’s qualifying offer is getting a hefty raise.
According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the new qualifying offer is set to $17.2 Million. The qualifying offer system is still slated to be in effect under the new CBA, but it will come with a few adjustments.
The one adjustment they plan to make to the qualifying offer is a player cannot be offered a qualifying offer in consecutive seasons. It’s not clear if this adjustment will come into effect this season, but i

- It has been a long road to recovery for Yankees prospect James Kaprielian; he battled elbow issues since April before tests revealed he had a flexor tendon strain which forced him to miss the remainder of the 2016 season.
However, Kaprielian made his debut in the Arizona Fall League on Wednesday night, and absolutely dominated. Kaprielian pitched three innings of one hit ball and struck out six batters, which included four consecutive strike outs between the first and second inning.

- The Scottsdale Scorpions may have come up short in their contest against Salt River on Wednesday night, losing 6-4, but it was still a big night for a host of New York Yankees prospects.
- During the 2016 season, the Yankees had the lethal “Three-Headed Monster” which consisted of Andrew Miller, Aroldis Chapman and Dellin Betances in the back of the bullpen. It was a good weapon for the Yankees since their starters only had to go a maximum of six innings. However, the Yankees dealt away Miller and Chapman in the middle of the season which ended up demolishing the bullpen, and it turned the once strong point of the team into their Achilles heel.
In an ef
- The thought was presented to Adam Warren, one day after the math no longer added up for the Yankees in postseason chase. Should things break right this October, he still might wind up with a World Series ring, having spent the season's first four months with the Cubs.
