YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mason Williams on the way up

With Slade Heathcott‘s call up to the big leagues, the Yankees announced earlier today that Mason Williams has been called up to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre from Double-A Trenton. The promotion is well earned for Willams, who’s resurrected his standing as a top Yankees prospect since falling off from his early success in the organization after he was drafted. Williams was...

New York Yankees: Expectations for Slade Heathcott

After a heartbreaking 8-6 loss to the Nationals via a Ryan Zimmerman two-run, walk-off homerun, the Yankees received more bad news after learning that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury sprained his right knee and would need a 15-day DL stint.  As a result, the Yankees called up former first round draft pick Slade Heathcott from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  Once a highly touted...

Is Michael Pineda a true ace?

There is little denying the fact that Michael Pineda has been the best pitcher in the New York Yankees rotation this season. He might have been the best pitcher during his time with the club last season as well. Being the best surrounded by mediocrity might make one the staff ace, but does not necessarily qualify one as a “true ace.” Is Pineda ready to be that type of pitcher...

Missing Ellsbury's Effort & Cursing Beltran's Lack Therof

A 2-7 road trip. As Joe Girardi would say, "It's not what you want." Last night was really frustrating, thanks, in part, to one Carlos Beltran.If he had made any sort of an effort to catch that pop fly in the bottom of the seventh, the Yankees might have gone on to get out of the inning without (what turned out to be) the winning run scoring. He didn't, and the Yankees lost the last...

Yankees Promote a Healthy Slade Heathcott

With Jacoby Ellsbury out of action for at least the next couple of weeks with a knee sprain, the Yankees called up former first round draft choice Slade Heathcott to help fill the void in the outfield. If it feels like you’ve been hearing about Heathcott for a while now, that’s because you have been. […]

5 Things That Angered Me From Last Nights Yankees Loss

The Yankees are in a tail spin right now; they’ve lost 6 of 8 so far on this road trip (I guess shaving the mustaches didn’t work?). Last nights 10 inning loss to the Nationals really got me fired up for a number of reasons, but before I get into it, please do not blame Andrew Miller for that loss. Ok, lets get into it…5 things that angered me from last night: View image...

Perfect timing? MIred in a slump, Slade Heathcott gets called up to the Yankees

For weeks, I secretly hoped Carlos Beltran would tweak a love handle and go on the DL. It wasn't that wished ill on Beltran - he is a nice man - but I just lost hope for him. I now leave the room when he comes to bat. (I've tried everything; nothing works.) In my fantasy Yankee world, Slade Heathcott would rise from Scranton like Linus's Great Pumpkin, take over RF and play there...

Yankees Lose To Nats as They Continue To Await Results of Project Eovaldi

It’s still May, so perhaps it is still too soon to judge Nathan Eovaldi. He has just 8 starts under his belt and they are his first in the American League and his first with a new team. When Cashman traded Martin Prado, a fan favorite during his brief Yankees tenure, and David Phelps for Eovaldi, it was with the understanding that Eovaldi was a bit of a project. His fastball...

Watch: Ryan Zimmerman Hits 10th Career Walk-off HR to Push Nats past Yankees

  View image | gettyimages.com Bryce Harper may be the Nationals‘ headliner, but the “Original” Ryan Zimmerman stole the show with his 10th walk-off home run of his career to give the Nationals a 8-6 win over the New York Yankees in the 10th inning. Nearly nine years to the date of his first walk-off homer, coincidentally against the Yankees, Zimmerman stole another...

Alex Rodriguez on Bryce Harper: ‘I love everything about him’

With the New York Yankees in D.C. for a two-game set with the Washington Nationals, it was apropos for Alex Rodriguez to be asked about the home team’s red-hot outfielder, Bryce Harper. Perhaps not surprisingly given the parallels between the two superstars at the early stages of their respective careers, A-Rod thinks very highly of...Read More The post Alex Rodriguez on Bryce...

New York Yankees: stay healthy and win the division

The New York Yankees head into Tuesday on the heels of a nine game road trip with the finale being an Interleague two-game matchup against the Washington Nationals. The Yankees’ offensive woes continue to haunt the team, especially as of late with a 2-5 losing skid in their past seven games. As the story has been all season, the bats have yet to produce at a consistent level. Regardless...

Yankees receive good and bad injury news

The New York Yankees received some good and then bad news concerning their starting pitchers on the disabled list. Masahiro Tanaka came out of Monday’s 29-pitch bullpen session without any issues and could begin a rehab assignment later this week while Ivan Nova is move one step closer to appearing in some minor league games. Unfortunately, the bad news was that Chase Whitley...

Injury news on the Yankees’ off day

Getty ImagesAfter the Yankees grueling stretch of 30 games in 31 days, the team finally enjoyed a day off in the nation’s capital. While most were relaxing, Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka was getting in some work. The 26-year-old banged up starter is continuing to work his way back from a strained right wrist, and ultimately avoid what some are saying is the inevitable Tommy John...

Yankees Continue To Slump As Offense Hits the Skids

That’s two back to back series losses for the New York Yankees. Neither one was particularly close. The Yankees lost 3 of 4 to the division rival Tampa Bay Rays last week and then dropped 2 of 3 to the Kansas City Royals by a combined score of 19-6. Sunday’s game, which they dropped 6-0, was the first time this season that the Yankees were shut out, a fate they narrowly avoided...

When is the Stephen Drew Experience going to be over for the Yankees?

There are many things in this world I just don't understand. Calculus. How to drive a stick shift. How to solve a Jumble. Why Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi have such faith in Stephen Drew.Why does Drew still have a job? His current numbers are .177/.264/.345. Those are the lowest numbers of any second baseman in the American League. They are also lower than any other second baseman...

Apparently, the Yankees will wait to fall out of first before making any moves

Here's today's Amazing True Fun Fan Fact:The Yankees yesterday were shutout for the first time all year!Yep. That was our first full-game whiff. It's hard to imagine that a team whose batting averages - after the first three hitters - are .248, .237, .234, .236, .177, and .204 - had not been shutout until yesterday. That's because several of our one-run games - like Thursday night...

New York Yankees: Chase Whitley injury not a big deal

Brian McCann (left) and Chase Whitley Thursday night was a bad one for the New York Yankees. They lost to the Tampa Bay Rays by a margin of five runs, allowing them to take the four-game series, and to make matters worse, right-handed starting pitcher Chase Whitley exited the game after just 43 pitches, complaining of an injury in his pitching elbow.

Alex Rodriguez not bothered by Jorge Posada’s remarks

Former New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has released a book recently. In his tour promoting said book, Posada indicated that he doesn’t find it fair that players have been known to cheat, including former teammates Roger Clemens and Alex Rodriguez. “I don’t think it’s fair for the guys that have been in the Hall of Fame that played the game clean,” Posada said on...

Yankees are back and better than we all thought

Everyone loves a good underdog story. When a team that hasn’t been very good in a few years and didn’t look like anything close to a contender when the season started comes out of the gate hot, baseball fans have found their new favorite team to rally around. This year, no team embodies that scrappy, can-do spirit like the New York Yankees. Yes, the little team that could...
