Starlin Castro, Didi Gregorius Trades Turned Spare Parts into Yankees’ Future

It was the first week of the season, a little early for bold statements. But Starlin Castro was already off to a great start with the New York Yankees, so why not? "We want to be the best middle infield we can be," Castro said, referring to his new partnership with shortstop Didi Gregorius. "We want to be the best middle infield in the major leagues." Maybe they can be, maybe they can't. But the fact that Castro could even bring up the possibility in the first week of the 2016 season ...

Locked-In Starlin Castro, Healthy Yankees Lineup Teasing Explosive Potential

It appears that all the New York Yankees offense needed to get going this season was a one-game warm-up. Also, somebody other than Dallas Keuchel on the mound for the opposition.

After Keuchel, the reigning American League Cy Young winner, silenced them in their opener Tuesday, the Yankees' bats woke up in a big way in the final two games of their series against the Houston Astros. A 17-hit parade led to a 16-6 ...

Luis Severino Under Immense Pressure to Become Yankees’ Ace in 2016

The New York Yankees are doing this right with Luis Severino, trying to lessen the pressure on him to be great right away, even if that pressure is his reality. They're doing this right, even if there is an argument to be made that the 22-year-old will be their best starting pitcher. Severino didn't start Tuesday's Opening Day game against the Houston Astros and Dallas Keuchel, just as he didn't start the Yankees' lone 2015 playoff game against the Astros and Keuchel. Masahiro Tanaka started Tuesday, just as he did last October, and ...

Yankees Opening Day 2016: TV Schedule, Live Stream and Predictions

After a playoff appearance last season, optimism is high for the New York Yankees heading into 2016. They start the year with a Wild Card Game rematch against reigning American League Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel and the Houston Astros.  Originally slated for Monday, the Yankees announced the game will now take place on Tuesday.

Andrew Miller’s Injury Is Bad Break for Yankees’ 3-Headed Bullpen Monster

The New York Yankees bullpen had a biblical feel to it at the start of spring training. We knew it was general manager Brian Cashman's creation, but it seemed as if a higher power put it together. In reality, it was a serious off-field problem and a failed trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers that allowed the Yankees and Cashman to pull off an offseason trade that brought flame-throwing left-handed closer Aroldis Chapman to the Bronx. He joined Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances to form a three-headed monster that had the potential to ...
