Andujar ranked third among top 3B prospects

January 23, 2018

NEW YORK — Nearly every trade proposal that has crossed Brian Cashman’s desk this winter mentioned Miguel Andujar‘s name, with competitors interested in prying the right-handed-hitting third baseman from the Yankees’ clutches. Thus far, Cashman has resisted any temptation to include the promising slugger in negotiations, including spiking a proposal from the Pirates that could have shipped right-hander Gerrit Cole to New York. If the season were to begin today,…


Yanks' Solak thriving in march through Minors

January 22, 2018

NEW YORK — As he ascends to the higher levels of the Minor Leagues, Nick Solak has merited praise as a “winning-type player who can hit and has real attributes that are clutch,” as Yankees director of amateur scouting Damon Oppenheimer recently said. MLB Pipeline has agreed, announcing on Monday that they rate Solak as the No. 5 second-base prospect in all of baseball. The 23-year-old Solak played well at…


Yankees' bullpen could be best of all time

January 19, 2018

The 2017 Yankees relievers were elite, by any metric you care to use. They had the third-lowest ERA (3.34); the lowest average against (.204); the highest strikeout rate (29.1 percent); the most Wins Above Replacement (9.2). They were good. They were so, so good. Now realize they could possibly be better in 2018. Then, think about the fact that if they were, it might put them in the conversation for…

No shortage of flamethrowers in stacked 'pen

January 10, 2018

NEW YORK — The swing-and-miss arsenal of the Yankees’ bullpen was viewed as one of the club’s greatest strengths during the 2017 season, and that crew should again dominate American League opponents when it’s deployed by new manager Aaron Boone. All of that heat should come in handy, with Boone envisioning a lineup that produces many leads for closer Aroldis Chapman and his friends to protect. NEW YORK — The…


How will Stanton, Judge fit in Yanks' lineup?

January 9, 2018

NEW YORK — The Yankees’ first visit to Fenway Park in 2018 is not scheduled to take place until April 10, and general manager Brian Cashman is already envisioning how the team might deploy its new-look outfield against Red Sox ace left-hander Chris Sale.
