Projecting the New York Yankees Final 25-Man Roster at the Start of Spring Games

The Yankees will take the field March 3 for the first spring game of their 2015 season.  The team is hoping to rebound from a disappointing 2014 season which saw it finish second in the AL East by a whopping 12 games. To do that, the Yankees will have to deal with a new crop of players, injury concerns and the departure of longtime shortstop and surefire Hall of Famer Derek Jeter, as well as the big dark cloud hanging over Alex Rodriguez. There is room for optimism with this team though, ...

With Derek Jeter Gone, Yankees’ Boom-or-Bust Roster Could Face Turbulence

TAMPA, Fla. — Routinely in the early days this spring, the Yankees haven't started workouts until late morning. Nobody begins their workdays this late in the spring, ever. Not in Florida. Not in Arizona. Why did manager Joe Girardi do it? Was it because: A. He wanted to outwait the thick morning dew and make sure the fields were dry. B. The Yankees needed an extra couple of hours each morning to ensure that Masahiro Tanaka's elbow was still in one piece, and to get CC Sabathia weighed in. C. Alex Rodriguez thought it would be a fabulous team-bonding ...

Didi Gregorius Ready for Challenge of Reaching Potential, Taking on N.Y.

After Derek Jeter’s retirement, one of the biggest questions heading into Major League Baseball’s offseason was how the New York Yankees would replace The Captain at shortstop. Based on previous years, the assumption was that the Yankees would sign an aging free agent such as Hanley Ramirez. However, general manager Brian Cashman decided to take a different route, acquiring Didi Gregorius from the Arizona Diamondbacks in early December as part of a three-team deal. “I was a little surprised about the trade, I’m not going to lie,” Gregorius recently told Bleacher Report. ...

Alex Rodriguez’s 2015 Spring Training Debut with Yankees Announced

Following the 2014 World Series, Alex Rodriguez's season-long suspension came to an end. Now, the controversial star has to convince the New York Yankees that he is healthy enough to be a productive piece for the franchise in 2015 and beyond.That journey began Monday as he participated in an intrasquad game and will continue Wednesday when he plays in his first exhibition game.  "[Joe] Girardi said A-Rod will play in Wednesday's game and will DH.

Losing Yoan Moncada Might Not Stop Yankees’ International Spending Spree

This is not how things are supposed to go for the New York Yankees. When it comes to desiring a commodity and having a willingness to spend for it, the Yankees are not supposed to swing and miss. And while the occasional whiff has happened under the Steinbrenner family reign, missing out on the prize they covet, for a myriad of reasons, is becoming more common. The latest example: Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada. The Yankees wanted him. Badly. They worked him out repeatedly. They were willing to pay a huge tax penalty to ...

Aaron Judge Will Finally Give Yankees Fans Big Prospect to Believe In

Right now, everyone's focused on what the New York Yankees farm system doesn't have: Cuban super-prospect Yoan Moncada. The Yankees were favored to land Moncada but were surprisingly outbid by the rival Boston Red Sox. That understandably has Yankees fans feeling frustrated, as missing out on Moncada feels all too typical for an organization that's had a tough time producing homegrown stars in recent years. But all is not lost. ESPN Insider Keith Law believes the Yankees farm system is "trending up again." Literally and figuratively, there's a big reason for that: Aaron Judge. Odds are you first ...

Mark Teixeira Discusses New Diet, Potential Impact on Production for Yankees

Lost in the madness of everything going on with Alex Rodriguez is the way Mark Teixeira has lost any semblance of value for the New York Yankees over the last two years. The 34-year-old has played just 138 games since 2013, but he thinks some offseason changes will provide the necessary help.    Speaking to Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com, who noted the slugger has changed his diet to remove gluten, sugar and dairy, Teixeira believes he can get back to being the hitter he was at his peak.  I look at the last ...

New York Yankees: A Healthy Tanaka Can Lead Yanks to Playoffs

The New York Yankees have a ton of question marks heading into spring training. It will be the first time in a long time without Derek Jeter at shortstop. Alex Rodriguez will likely lead the league in publicity, but he may or may not hit. And there is no clear-cut choice to start at second base.But the biggest concern might be ace pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.  The Yankees signed the Japanese star to a seven-year, $155 million contract last January, and even though he pitched wonderfully in his first 20 starts of big ...
