With the Yankees going through an awful teamwide slump, I thought it would be a good time to highlight the contributions of 2012′s biggest surprise, Raul Ibanez. As a 39 year-old veteran coming off of a subpar season, little was expected from Ibanez in 2012. Ibanez became part of the le Yankees’ DH platoon in [...]
The Yankees are currently mired in a stretch of mediocre play that has seen subpar contributions from the offense, defense, and pitching. It has been very frustrating to watch as a fan, and presumably equally frustrating for the players. The Yankees looked to get themselves back on track today against the Royals.
Hiroki Kuroda was [...]
After a disappointing loss last night, the Yankees go back to work against the Toronto Blue Jays. Phil Hughes will take the hill for the Yankees, matching up against 21 year-old rookie Drew Hutchison. According to Fangraphs, Hutchison averages about 91 mph with his 4-seamer, and also mixes in a 2-seamer and a slider.
When the Yankees signed Hiroki Kuroda to a 1-year deal this offseason, they figured that they were getting a solid #3 starter who would keep the ball on the ground, get a decent amount of strikeouts, and keep the walks under control. Some regression in Kuroda’s impressive numbers for the Dodgers could have [...]
In his short Yankee career, Hiroki Kuroda has frequently had trouble in the 1st inning, putting his team in a hole early in the game. The good news about today’s outing was that Kuroda managed to avoid 1st-inning trouble, sending down Toronto’s first 3 batters in order. The bad news, however, is that Kuroda got [...]
After a disappointing end to their 2-game series in Baltimore, the Yankees north to take on the Toronto Blue Jays. Hiroki Kuroda (3-4 3.56) takes the hill for the Yankees, and will face Toronto’s young gun in Kyle Drabek (2-4 3.66). Drabek had a disappointing start to 2011 that caused him to get demoted to [...]
Angelo Gumbs has always been one of a favorite Yankee prospect among the TYA staff, and not only because of his dynamic athletic ability and raw tools. Gumbs has often been overshadowed by other members of his draft class, including million dollar bonus baby Mason Williams and 1st-round selection
In tonight’s matchup between the Yankees and the Mariners, the excellent pitching matchup of Felix Hernandez and Hiroki Kuroda was largely in the background. Most prominent in the minds of Yankee fans was the return of Jesus Montero, one-time Yankee top prospect and now Seattle’s cleanup hitter and occasional catcher. Montero was making his return [...]
Per Jack Curry, the Yankees will be sending fan favorite Eduardo Nunez down to AAA to make room for the return of Eric Chavez from the disabled list. Nunez has been a polarizing figure among Yankee fans since he established himself as the primary utilityman off the bench. [...]
Sweeny Murti of CBS recently spoke to Michael Pineda to get some more information on the events leading up to his shoulder injury, and how he sees things going forward. It’s a good read, and I recommend taking a look at the entire thing, but here are some highlights:
Pineda debunked [...]
