2015 Yankees Could Be Perfect Fit for 6-Man Rotation Experiment

The six-man rotation is sort of like the Bigfoot or Loch Ness Monster of Major League Baseball. It's talked about but doesn't really exist. But unlike Sasquatch or Nessy, a baseball team putting together a batch of six starting pitchers actually could come to fruition. While it flies in the face of convention—five-man rotations have become an ingrained part of the sport's accepted modus operandi—a six-man rotation would require a club to have the arms necessary and the daring to make such a decision. Like, maybe, the New York Yankees. It might seem ...

Alex Rodriguez Reportedly Training with Barry Bonds at Bay Area Facility

In an attempt to make a comeback after suspensions and injuries have essentially kept him out of baseball for the past two years, New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez has reportedly enlisted the services of another controversial superstar in his day, Barry Bonds. According to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, Rodriguez is training with Bonds at the Future Prospects facility in San Rafael, California: A couple of sources—actually buddies whose kids train at the facility—tipped me off to the Bonds-Rodriguez sessions, which obviously made quite a few up-and-comers do a double take. The kids looked, ...

Biggest Winners and Losers from the Yankees’ Offseason

Major League Baseball's offseason is undeniably the most exciting in sports. Once the winter meetings get going in early December, players begin signing contracts and switching uniforms at a rapid pace. Teams are making trades, bringing in free agents and bidding against one another in the name of improving their own ballclub. That holds true for the New York Yankees, as it does for any organization. After missing the playoffs for the second straight year with one of MLB's oldest rosters in 2014, the Yanks decided they wanted get younger. With this ...

Stephen Drew to Yankees: Latest Contract Details, Comments, Reaction

Free agency has not been kind to Stephen Drew recently, but the veteran shortstop has found a new home heading into the 2015 season. According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Drew has decided to rejoin the New York Yankees: CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman first reported that a deal was close. The last two times Drew was a free agent, after 2012 and 2013, he had to settle for one-year deals. He battled injuries during the 2012 season that limited him to 79 games with Arizona and Oakland, so Boston was able to get him at ...

3 Missing Pieces the Yankees Could Still Land This Winter

The New York Yankees have had an eventful offseason despite not making any major splashes, yet there is still some work to do. They have already found Derek Jeter's successor in Didi Gregorius, traded for young starter Nathan Eovaldi, re-signed third baseman Chase Headley, brought in reliever Andrew Miller and made a handful of other smaller moves, so it has not exactly been quiet on the Yankees' front. Still, the Bronx Bombers 2015 roster as it is presently constructed has some question marks. The rotation's health should be a major concern. Rob ...

New York Yankees’ Top 10 Prospects for 2015

The 2014 season didn’t go as planned for the New York Yankees, who failed to reach the playoffs for a second straight year despite signing high-profile free agents such as Jacoby Ellsbury, Masahiro Tanaka, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran. Things went much better down on the farm, though, as the organization’s top prospects took a huge step forward individually and collectively. Outfielder Aaron Judge flashed his offensive upside with an impressive professional debut across both Class-A levels, while 20-year-old right-handed pitcher Luis Severino and his electric arm turned in a breakout performance ...

New Year’s Resolutions for the Yankees in 2015

The new year is almost upon us, which means so are New Year's resolutions. It is a tradition for people to come up with changes they want to make in their lives, whether it be eating healthier, going to the gym more or quitting a bad habit like smoking. We all have areas in which we would love to improve. So do the New York Yankees. After not making the playoffs for two straight seasons, the Bronx Bombers need to make some resolutions of their own in 2015. If they do, perhaps this ...

Can Alex Rodriguez Still Be Impact Bat with DH-Only Duties, Year of Rest?

There's fewer than 60 days until pitchers and catchers report, which means there's less than two months until the Alex Rodriguez circus begins again for the New York Yankees. It's been a while since the embattled Rodriguez last was a regular topic of discussion and debate in baseball circles, let alone a daily one, as he surely will be come Feb. 20, 2015. Now that Rodriguez is 39 years old and coming off a few injury-riddled seasons and the longest performance-enhancing drug-related suspension in Major League Baseball history—that is, the entire 2014 ...

New York Yankees’ 5 Best Offseason Signings of the Last Decade

Over the last 20 years, the New York Yankees have claimed five World Series championships, seven American League Pennants and five AL East titles. The success of the Yankees has come in large part from the homegrown talents of the "Core Four." Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte were certainly the faces of the Yankees dynasty—and arguably the most eccentric part of the success the Yankees had. However, the shrewd moves in free agency are what helped build this team into the force it has become. Over the past ...

Yankees Need Yoan Moncada Signing to Continue to Build New Future

The New York Yankees need Yoan Moncada, the next Cuban sensation readying to make his way to Major League Baseball. And they need him for oh-so-many reasons. Moncada, in case you haven't been paying attention, defected from his native Cuba and established residency in Guatemala, where he held a showcase workout for teams in mid-November. He already has been declared a free agent by MLB, but before open season on signing Moncada starts, teams still are awaiting word that he has been cleared by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) ...
