SNY | Danny Abriano and Phillip Martinez: With spring training fully underway, one Yankees star has been forced to watch live batting practice from the sidelines. That is about to change. Jasson Domínguez, who has been throwing from 60 feet at the spring training complex in Tampa, received clearance to begin batting Monday. He is expected to hi ..read more

The Yankees play baseball tomorrow, and the vibes are good

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports Things feel much more positive than this time last year. The streets are covered in melted slush, the final remnants of last week’s two snowfalls. The temperature registers a high of forty degrees, and rain is expected to scatter itself throughout the day. Thanks to this miserable weather, New York City feels dark and gloomy, and although March is just a week away, it feels like George R.R. Martin will publish A Dream of Spring long before spring arrives in the tri-state area. And yet, today is in many ways the final day of winter: for tomorrow, a thousand miles ..read more

The Yankees’ hypothetical dilemma: Snell or Monty?

Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees could use a top-notch starter and haven’t closed the door on adding more players. But who should they pick? The Yankees could potentially enter the 2024 campaign with the personnel they currently have. That would mean opening the year with the following rotation: Gerrit Cole, Carlos Rodón, Nestor Cortes, Marcus Stroman, and Clarke Schmidt. Luke Weaver, Luis Gil, Will Warren, and Clayton Beeter would complete the starting pitching depth chart. If they want to greatly enhance their chances of making a deep postseason run, however, they should strongly ..read more

Yankees 2024 Season Preview: Oswald Peraza

12h ago
Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports Peraza was beat out for the shortstop position by Anthony Volpe in 2023’s spring training, and 2024 feels like a make or break year for the 23-year-old. The battle for shortstop during spring training between Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza was likely the biggest narrative fans and media were watching closely as it developed. Peraza had experience in the major leagues (albeit, only 18 games), and he played well during that time, making everyone believe he would have the advantage when it came time for a decision. However, after Volpe won the race (and didn't ma ..read more

Photo by New York Yankees/Getty Images The long break between game action ends after today. We’ve seen players report, we’ve seen some cell phone camera shots of at-bats between specific players, and we’ve seen the awful uniforms that they’re all wearing to start the year. Now it’s almost time to throw all those elements into one big bowl and mix it into a spring training game. It’s been an especially long wait for the Yankees after missing out on the postseason, and even though the games won’t count for a while it’ll be a sight for sore eyes to see them take the field again. That’s for tomorr ..read more

With two of the top five pitchers on the market still available, Steinbrenner didn’t commit to targeting someone like Blake Snell, but after a fairly active offseason it wouldn’t surprise me to see one more shoe dro ..read more

Clarke Schmidt should add a splitter to his arsenal

Photo by Ed Zurga/Getty Images The pitch that’s taking the league by storm could be heading to the Bronx. Over the last two seasons, the sweeper has been the pitch of the moment. Word of the pitch first reached the ears of fans via Lindsey Adler’s reporting two springs ago and now it seems like everyone and their mother throws a sweeper. However, there’s a new viral pitch in town, and it’s time for the sweeper to stand aside for the splitter. In Canada, they call a splitter "a splitter"https://t.co/MOfTZCqiMB — Mike Petriello (@mike_petriello) February 20, 2024 at the risk of tooting my o ..read more

We are all in the best shape of our lives

Photo by Cliff Welch/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Appreciating that spring has sprung. For the most part, when something has earned the designation of being “cliché,” it’s often because it actually tends to be true. In that vein, hope really does seem to spring eternal in baseball, come spring. Players have arrived at camps, and by the time this is up, there will be Major League players playing a game this very afternoon. Everyone is excited, and we should be. One storyline that seems to come out of every big league camp every year, is the age-old “best shape of his life” tale. It may be t ..read more

Why won’t the Yankees meet expectations?

Depending on who you ask, the Yankees are tabled for about 92 wins via the various public projection systems, and let’s talk about why they’re not going to get there. The Boo-Boos The Ace said it himself last week: the club gets injured too much. Every team is going to have its share of injured list visits, but the Yankees saw the third-most player days lost to injury in 2023, and have been in the top 10 every year — save t ..read more

Yankees 2024 Season Preview: Ron Marinaccio

Photo by J. Conrad Williams Jr./Newsday RM via Getty Images Can the breakout 2022 performer get back to that level after struggling a bit in 2023? In 2022, Ron Marinaccio was seemingly another addition to the Yankees’ portfolio of unearthing productive bullpen results out of unexpected sources. New York’s 19th-round draft pick in 2017, Marinaccio put up a 2.05 ERA in 44 innings with the 2022 Yanks, becoming a very good middle relief/occasional late relief option as the team won the division before a shin injury cut him out of the playoff picture. The former Blue Hen started out 2023 in a simil ..read more
