The Yankees are out on the West Coast tonight to begin a 3-game series against the Oakland A’s, the start of a long road trip. Ivan Nova takes the hill for the Bombers tonight, looking to avoid the home run problems that have plagued him this season. The combination of a pitcher-friendly Oakland Coliseum and [...]
Tyler Austin has put up impressive offensive numbers at pretty much every stop in his minor league career, and prospect watchers are beginning to take notice. I certainly include myself among people who have underrated Austin throughout his short career, probably unfairly, because he didn’t have an elite draft pedigree or play a premium position. [...]
Ivan Nova‘s numbers this year are far from flattering, and we’ve covered some theories behind why he might have a 5.69 ERA this season. A changeup issue appears to be responsible for some of his homeruns, but his slider has improved his strikeout rates. He’s currently looking at a 9.55 K/9, [...]
So the 10 P.M. games start tonight. This stupid ritual. Sigh. Anyway, let’s get to it.
The most surprising thing about Oakland this year has been Josh Reddick. He was shipped over to the A’s by the Red Sox in exchange for Andrew Bailey. In a team leading 188 PAs, Reddick is hitting .272/.337/.527, [...]
ESPN the Magazine’s Jorge Arangure Jr has an excellent piece up today on Ivan Nova, tracking his unlikely evolution from an unheralded prospect who grew up poor in the Dominican Republic to a key member of the Yankee rotation. The entire piece is a must-read, as it describes Nova’s career all [...]
Mark Montgomery is putting on quite the display in the minor leagues right now. Since signing quickly after the 2011 draft, Mark Montgomery has pitched 50 innings in the minor leagues. He has a robust 1.62 ERA, slightly below average 3.6 BB/9, and has still yet to allow a home run. But the real story [...]

Exactly 5 weeks ago, I wrote a post preaching patience and positive vibes in regards to Mark Teixeira’s slow start. Stumbling out of the gate in April was nothing new for Teix, he was still in the process of [...]
Last summer, a lot of great content about catcher defense was put out, led by this Mike Fast piece at BP. Catcher defense is something we all know to be important to a team, but we haven’t been quite sure how to quantify it; now, it seems like we’re getting closer [...]
Tonight was test number three for Andy Pettitte, who was last seen devastating the Red’s lineup with 8.0 shutout innings of 4 hit ball. Of course the Royals lineup is a little more challenging, showcasing bats like Alex Gordon, Billy Butler, Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, [...]
With the ups and downs that this team has suffered thus far, it almost seems unfair to pile on injury news on the heels of their first win in what felt like an eternity … but Austin Romine is out until “at least July” due to an inflamed disk in his back. While [...]
