Ah ha! I knew I was on to something. Right-hander Johnny Barbato recently told DJ Eberle the Yankees are preparing him for a potential starting pitcher role with Triple-A Scranton this season. The decision to make him a starter isn’t final yet, but Barbato is getting stretched out and has thrown multiple innings in each […]

This is still a weird and awesome and completely true statement: the Yankees are loaded with exciting up-and-coming young talent. Last year’s trade deadline activity combined with breakouts from incumbent prospects give New York the game’s consensus No. 2 farm system behind the Braves. The 2016 draft helped too. That was cool. The Yankees are, […]

Opening Day is now only six days away, and at this point the Yankees still have nearly a full 40-man roster worth of players in big league camp. They have 35 players in camp and the World Baseball Classic is part of the reason. Some players, like Donovan Solano, have been in camp without actually […]

This afternoon’s win — they’ve almost become a formality for the Yankees this spring, haven’t they? — featured two more home runs, raising their Spring Training total to 47 homers in 31 games. They hit 20 in 32 games last year. I do love dingers. Aaron Hicks and Ruben Tejada did the honors today. Hicks […]

After today, the next time you read a post from me, the Yankees will be three hours away from their first pitch of the season against the Tampa Bay Rays (while we’re on it, how silly is it that even in a dome, the Yankees have an off day after their Opening Day? Isn’t the […]

The Yankees have six exhibition games remaining, and if they’re leaning toward certain players for the fourth and fifth rotation spots, they haven’t said as much. They might be leaving some clues though. Luis Cessa has already been sent to minor league camp, so he’s out of the running. Duh. Also, in recent days Chad […]
