Gene “Stick” Michael, who was a beloved executive with the New York Yankees, helped to build their dynasty teams of the late-1990s and drafted future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter, has died at the age of 79 after suffering a heart attack, said the American League club on Thursday. No confirmation has been made,  but one source said that Michael had undergone a heart procedure at some point earlier in the year, but that news had been kept private from the general public.

Despite Hitting Home Run, Judge Sets Longest Game Streak for Strikeouts

Aaron Judge the rookie right fielder for the New York Yankees hit a towering home run that traveled 457 feet on Wednesday night landing in the third deck in left.

On Wednesday, during the ninth inning, Judge struck out against Erik Goeddel a reliever for the New York Mets. The strikeout gave Judge at least one strikeout in 33 consecutive games, which broke the single season mark set in 2012 by Adam Dunn. When he was asked... 
 

Injury to CC Sabathia Adds to Yankees’ Concerns

This season veteran southpaw hurler CC Sabathia has meant a great deal to the New York Yankees. However, he is once again injured, as his right knee, the one he wears a brace on, has started to give him problems again. Sabathia left Tuesday’s game, a loss of 4-2 to the Toronto Blue Jays, after only making 57 pitches, due to tweaking his right knee at some time during while pitching the third inning. Sabathia simply said that it was the same feeling he gets when his knee hurts, just pain. He said he was frustrated because the knee has been healthy... 
 

Sonny Gray Acquired By Yankees from Athletics

Last year at the trade deadline, Brian Cashman the General Manager for the New York Yankees had to persuade owner Hal Steinbrenner to take an approach that was unlike the organization and shed its highly paid well known players in exchange for prospects that were yet unproven. For other clubs, that is called a fire sale, which is the baseball equivalent of throwing in the towel for the season, and signals a club is beginning to rebuild, something New York has not done in over 20 years. Fast forward to this trade deadline and Cashman reversed his... 
 

Todd Frazier Traded to Yankees for Blake Rutherford and Others

Todd Frazier was acquired by the New York Yankees from the Chicago White Sox, along with Tommy Kahnle and David Robertson the teams announced late Tuesday. In exchange the White Sox received Blake Rutherford an outfielder who was the first round pick for New York in 2016, Ian Clarkin a southpaw pitching prospect, minor leaguer Tito Polo and Tyler Clippard a right-handed reliever with the Yankees. Clippard’s contract will help offset some money in the deals for Robertson and Frazier, who is a New Jersey native, and said it felt surreal to be returning... 
 

Aaron Judge Passes Yankees Legend Joe DiMaggio for Rookie Home Runs

Aaron Judge the New York Yankees rookie sensation needed just 84 games to take over first place on the all-time rookie home run list for the club. On Friday, Judge hit a moonshot over 432 feet during the fifth inning for home run No. 30 on the season. That overtook the previous best of 29 home runs hit in 1936 by then-rookie Joe DiMaggio who needed 138 games to reach that mark. There are another 78 games Judge could possibly play before the end of the regular season. Judge called it an honor and added that the first half of this season has been... 
 

Home Run Derby Expected to Be the Best Yet

The past few years, the Home Run Derby during MLB’s All-Star Game break has been described as stale or lacking excitement. Ratings have been declining as interest waned. The biggest problem it has faced is the lack of big home run hitters taking part. That will change this summer. If all goes as planned, this year’s derby could bring the event back into the spotlight and create a firestorm on social media. This week the bracket was released by Major League Baseball and it is loaded with power and more precisely young power instead of aging home... 
 

Dustin Fowler Ruptures Patellar Tendon in Yankees Debut

On Thursday night, rookie outfielder for the New York Yankees Dustin Fowler suffered a ruptured patellar tendon of his right knee after crashing into the rail on the first base line at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago during the first inning of the rookie’s major league baseball debut.

After running into the rail, Fowler remained on the ground a number of minutes while medical personnel stabilized his right knee. He then was... 
 

Injury to Gleyber Torres Adds to Questions About Yankees

On Monday, news that Gleyber Torres will need to have Tommy John surgery hit the New York Yankees hard, as he was likely a late-season option for the team during its stretch run to win a title. Torres is not just one of the most talented prospects in baseball, but convinced Yankees executives in the organization that he was advanced beyond his age, which would allow him to handle the pressure and spotlight cast upon him playing in the majors for a pennant even though he is just 20. Many thought Torres would take the third base job away from Chase... 
 

New York Yankees and Masahiro Tanaka Hit Hard Again

The New York Yankees for just the first time during this season are entrenched in a slump. The Yankees lost their fifth straight game on Saturday and if that was not enough, Masahiro Tanaka the team’s so-called ace is not showing any signs of improving. Tanaka was rocked for five runs over just four innings giving up three home runs. The game started poorly for the Yankees and continued downhill from there. The first pitch made by Tanaka was hit over the outfield fence by Matt Joyce for a leadoff home run. Tanaka’s problems on the mound are... 
 

Gary Sanchez Leaves Yankees Game With Groin Tightness

On Thursday night in Oakland, A huge offensive display for Gary Sanchez the New York Yankees budding star ended with worry. On the night, Sanchez reached base safely each of the five times he came to bat. He was 3-for-3 and walked twice. His hits included a pair of singles and a double Sanchez also stole a base and knocked in a pair of runs. His double during the seventh and single during the ninth scored Starlin Castro the Yankees second baseman to tie the game for New York. The Yankees eventually lost in 10 innings 8-7 to Oakland. However, during... 
 

Tanaka Ends Slump and Leads Yankees to Victory

Before Monday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels, New York Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka had been struggling, leading many to believe he would eventually get sent to the bullpen if he snap out of his funk soon. After giving up a homerun in the first inning, a lot of Yankees fans and baseball pundits thought New York was going to be in for another long night thanks to Tanaka’s struggles. However, Aaron Judge put all those worries to bed with two homeruns on the night, including the game-winning two-run homerun in the eighth inning. While... 
 

Mike Scioscia Is Admirer of Yankees Aaron Judge

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia may be on the other side of the country but is one of Aaron Judge’s biggest admirers. The Angels manager said Judge has the potential to be very, very special as a player. Of course, Scioscia should know a great player when he sees one as he has managed Mike Trout since he debuted back in 2011. Scioscia called both his player Trout and Judge exceptional multi-dimensional players. Judge, who is 25, is continuing to earn honors early in the season. On Monday, he won his first American League Player of the... 
 

New York Yankees Didi Gregorius Injures Shoulder

Didi Gregorius a shortstop for the New York Yankees bruised his right shoulder which ended his playing time for the Netherlands at the World Baseball Classic. It is now uncertain what his status will be for opening day for the Yankees. New York manager Joe Girardi would not put any timetable on his shortstop’s return saying only that he would be sidelined for a while. New York opens its regular season on April 2 on the road in Tampa Bay. It is unknown when or how Gregorius was hurt while playing for the Netherlands. The team reached the semifinals... 
 

Alex Rodriguez: No Comeback for Me

Former major league baseball star Alex Rodriguez is maintaining that he will not attempt any comeback. Released in August of last year, with over one season remaining on his 10-year $275 million contract, A-Rod worked as a guest instructor for the first day on Tuesday at spring training with the New York Yankees. Asked if he was retired, Rodriquez replied that, “Yes, I am.” He said he was happy doing what he was doing now with younger players. He added that he learned some of his biggest lessons from some of his mistakes and they happened to... 
 

Sources: New York Yankees and Matt Holliday Agree to Deal

It appears that the New York Yankees have found their new designated hitter. According to reliable sources, Matt Holliday has agreed to a $13 million one-year deal to become a member of the New York Yankees, which represents the first high-profile move this offense for Brian Cashman the Yankees general manager. The sources said the deal was only pending Holliday passing a physical. Following the trade last month of Brian McCann by the Yankees to the Houston Astros, the team was looking for a new designated hitter. Options in the free agent market... 
 

Gary Sanchez Sets Record with Two Straight Player of Week Awards

The New York Yankees are a long shot to make the 2016 MLB playoffs. Nevertheless, if the Yankees do not make the playoffs it will have nothing to do with how rookie Gary Sanchez is playing. Sanchez this week became the first rookie ever to win the Player of the Week award two consecutive times. On Monday, Sanchez was named the American League Player of the Week. It was the second straight week the Yankees catcher was given the award. He is the first rookie in the history of Major League Baseball to win two straight player of the week awards. He... 
 

New York Yankees Season Not Over Yet

When the trade deadline came, management and ownership’s deals gave them young players and future prospects and the New York Yankees began to look to the future. Next, to go was Alex Rodriguez. However, instead of looking to next season, the young Yankees caught fire and are now in the playoff race for an American League wildcard spot. Mark Teixeira said the players knew the situation during the deadline but that did not stop the players from wanting to win and make the playoffs. The Yankees continued their hot streak on Friday with a 14-4 win... 
 

Switching Hitting Mark Teixeira Joins 400-Home Run Club

New York Yankees slugger Mark Teixeira has joined the 400-home run club. The first baseman, who is switch-hitter, was in a hitting slump of 6 for his last 26 starting Sunday’s game against the San Diego Padres. On the day, Teixeira was 0-3 with three Ks prior to hitting two home runs batting left-handed over his last  two at bats helping the Yankees to move their record to within one game of .500 at 40-41. Teixeira now has 401 home runs for his career becoming just the fifth player who bats from both sides to reach that plateau in the major leagues. His... 
 

Alex Rodriguez Inching Closer to 700 Home Runs

This past weekend Alex Rodriguez hit another home run. For those keeping track of that stat, Rodriguez now has 695 for his illustrious career. He has been hitting well of late and closing in on becoming just the fourth player in Major League Baseball history to hit 700 home runs. He would join the small elite club of Barry Bonds, Henry Aaron and Babe Ruth. This is a big deal for baseball even if due to Rodriguez’s year long suspension in 2014 it does not seem like it. Rodriguez had problems at the plate prior to a recent run of good hitting. It... 
 

Yankees CC Sabathia Continues to Defy Odds

Most baseball pundits would never have thought that CC Sabathia would have the lowest ERA on the New York Yankees starting rotation after 60 games of the regular season. Not only does the veteran southpaw have his team’s best ERA, but also he has baseball’s lowest ERA since May 1. Ten weeks have been played in the 2016 MLB regular season and the best starting pitcher for the Yankees is Sabathia. It might not be that much of a surprise, if not for the prior two seasons, as he spent a great deal of those two on the disabled list with problems... 
 

Aroldis Chapman Era Begins in the Big Apple

Aroldis Chapman proved to be one of the few major league baseball players that can stop everybody and everything so people race to a television to see. The new closer for the New York Yankees is an exception. When he comes to the mound from the bullpen people want to be in the ballpark or at least near their television set to see just how hard he can throw. Tuesday night, he powered one of his fastballs to 102 mph while pitching in what was his second appearance in Yankees pinstripes. To end the game, Chapman was facing Lorenzo Cain, who had hit... 
 

Aroldis Chapman Traded to New York Yankees for Package of Prospects

The New York Yankees and Cinncinnati Reds have agreed in a trade sending prized closer, Aroldis Chapman, to the Yankees in exchange for a package of four minor league prospects, including: Eric Jagielo, Caleb Cotham, Rookie Davis and Tony Renda. Chapman is far and away the biggest name in the deal, arguably the best closer in baseball, posting a 1.14 WHIP to go with a 1.63 ERA and 15.7 K/9 last season, which was on the low end of his career numbers.  The 27-year-old is in his prime and could be a free agent after 2016, but faces potential punishment... 
 

Yankees Face Multiple Options Going Forward This Winter

With the ink of David Price‘s new contract still drying in the front office of their arch rival, the New York Yankees face multiple options for how they will proceed this winter. Winter Meetings will be in full effect shortly where the position player market is likely to heat up after the Big Three of pitchers (Jordan Zimmerman, Price and Zack Greinke) are all likely to be off the boards by the end of business on Friday. Fortunately for the Yankees, free agent pitching is not its biggest need this winter. Ivan Nova is likely to be tendered... 
 

Luis Severino to Debut Thursday for Yankees

The New York Yankees may have struck out at the trade deadline but plan to impose its biggest transaction with itself by calling up top prospect, Luis Severino, to debut on Thursday. Severino, will be added to a rotation suddenly with a lot of question marks surrounding itself. CC Sabathia has reverted back to major struggles, most recently getting shelled by Texas on Thursday. Ivan Nova and Masahiro Tanaka have been inconsistent and Michael Pineda will be out at least a month with a strained forearm. Severino will take Pineda’s spot in the... 
 

Yankees Roster: What’s the Best Course of Action in April?

It’s about that time of year where minor clues start to be handed out like early Easter eggs during spring training and it coincidentally coincides with another annual Yankees’ tradition: Pitching injuries. Chris Capuano is the first to go down, straining his right quad and leaving the door open for any of: Adam Warren, Scott Baker or Bryan Mitchell to have to make at least one start during the first half of April. What we know about the rest of the team so far is this: Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner are likely forming a lefty-lefty... 
 

New York Yankees Rotation: Healthy or Not, Here They Are

Much has been made of the health in the Yankees’ starting rotation, from the front-end arms of Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda to the depth potential in Ivan Nova and CC Sabathia. New York will be going into the regular season likely with a rotation different from its powerful bullpen which should have depth and high upside, but similar to its offense, potentially better than last year but still full of question marks. Each pitcher has a different issue they will be dealing with for the start of the season with varying levels of risk and... 
 

It’s Clear the Yankees Did Not Have a Plan for Yoan Moncada

It’s been two days and Yoan Moncada is still a Boston Red Sox player. This didn’t turn out to be a cruel joke Hal Steinbrenner tried to pull to literally see if his Father might roll over in his grave. And as the past 48 hours have come and gone, it’s clear the Yankees did not have a suitable plan for how to approach an offer for the Cuban teenager. All winter long the Yankees have operated intelligently and with understandable restraint. They didn’t overspend on veterans in free agency who won’t be around or in their... 
 

Scott Baker – Most Important Player Not on Yankees 40 Man Roster

The New York Yankees will need a lot to go right in order to be contenders for the 2015 season. CC Sabathia and his recent weight gain will have to stay healthy and effective. Michael Pineda and Mashiro Tanaka will likely have to avoid major injury, while Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez try to capture glory days one last time. While bit players like Chris Young and Garrett Jones are specifically on the 25 man roster to provide depth in case of injury, there are four players who aren’t even on the 40 man roster who may offer a long-term impact... 
 

Yankees Need to Remember Own History

The New York Yankees have won 27 world championships spread out across 92 years. Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Yogi Berra, Joe Dimaggio: The team in pinstripes has no shortage of greatness from greatest to simply “Hall of Famer”. Fifty three different players have played for the Yankees and sit in Cooperstown and 26 of them entered with the Yankees as their primary team. This isn’t a lesson in statistics, it’s a lesson in just how special the Yankees’ past has been. Before the 1990’s dynasty, the Yankees had 17 players... 
 

New York Yankees Made the Smartest Decisions This Winter

With pitchers and catchers due to report this weekend and James Shields firmly planted on the Padres’ roster, the majority of the heavy and impactful lifting is complete for the 2015 winter. The New York Yankees used the past three-and-a-half months trying to get younger, trying to sure up the defense, trying to cover both holes on the left side of the infield, trying to sort out the second base competition and trying to rebuild some of the innings lost with Hiroki Kuroda‘s departure. It was a long to-do list to not only maintain what... 
 

Yankees Defense Good Enough for Playoff Contention, The Rest?

If there’s one underlying theme to the New York Yankees’ winter, it’s been improving the defense. Whether that means addition by subtraction with Derek Jeter‘s retirement, keeping together another strong bullpen lead by strikeout machine, Dellin Betances, or simply getting younger and more athletic, it has all contributed to the same cause. Keeping runs off the board. Last season, the Yankees’ average age was 30.2, trailing only the Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies for oldest team in the majors. Of course, this... 
 

New York Yankees: Five Possible Outcomes in 2015

It seemed like such a dismal failure, but the New York Yankees actually finished as the second best team in the American League East last season. We discovered: Masahiro Tanaka, Dellin Betances and what Brett Gardner‘s power looks like. We said goodbye to: Brian Roberts, Alfonso Soriano and, by the end, Dave Robertson and Hiroki Kuroda. By the end, we were excited about: Jacoby Ellsbury, Michael Pineda and Chase Headley and disappointed in: Brian McCann, CC Sabathia and Carlos Beltran. There were a lot of moving parts, ups and downs and most... 
 

Yankees Need to Stay Firm with Alex Rodriguez

Reports on Monday indicated the New York Yankees were planning on suing its highest paid player in the event he had any modicum of success. Ladies and Gentleman, only Alex Rodriguez can create those headlines. We live in a Yankees’ Universe where they don’t pick up the phone for an employee who was once considered the next “face” of the franchise, even if it’s allegedly just an apology. We follow a franchise where if Alex Rodriguez hits six home runs, there could be legal repercussions. There’s a team who owns... 
 

New York Yankees Prospects Who Could Have an Immediate Impact

The New York Yankees have had issues developing offensive farm talent for the better part of two decades, at least in using that talent to help its own roster. Much has been written about the potential prospect battle at second base but it quickly had cold water tossed on it when Stephen Drew was brought back in the mix. While the roster has trended significantly younger this winter, New York still has performance and health concerns and the most promising offensive talent at the higher levels of the minors in years. Let’s look at which of... 
 

New York Yankees Should be All in on Yoan Moncada

With Brian Cashman seemingly fully in control of personnel decisions, the New York Yankees have continued a calculated approach towards a youth movement this winter. Signing Cuban super-prospect, Yoan Moncada, would be the crown jewel of the off-season and make him immediately the top prospect in the Yankees’ system. Each transaction thus far has been an obvious attempt at making moves for 2015 and beyond as opposed to a one season franchise attempt, something the Yankees had been attempting for over a decade prior. Moncada would be the “finishing... 
 

Yankees Sign Stephen Drew, Add Infield Flexibility

The New York Yankees re-signed 31-year-old, Stephen Drew, for a one year, $5 million dollar deal with potentially 1-2 million in incentives on Tuesday. Drew will be expected to play second base and provide insurance to Didi Gregorius at shortstop. The veteran, Drew, hit a measly .162/.237 last season but missed part of the season before signing with a team and there have been rumors of alleged personal matters which may have contributed to his weak numbers. With the move, Brendan Ryan, the previous slick-fielding backup shortstop, would appear to... 
 

Yankees Rumors: Potential Remaining Offseason Moves

It’s been an off-season of saving money and getting younger for the New York Yankees. This isn’t some sort of alternate Universe but it is a clear philosophical shift by the front office to go in a different direction, possibly with an Alex Rodriguez reminder and CC Sabathia and Mark Teixeira contracts fresh on the conscience. The fact of the matter is if the Yankees kept going the direction they were headed, it could have become mid 1980’s ugly and Brian Cashman likely realized that. As a result, Didi Gregorius, Nathan Eovaldi,... 
 

Yankees Trade Shawn Kelley to Padres

The New York Yankees and San Diego Padres have agreed to a trade that will send right-hander Shawn Kelley to the Padres in exchange for minor league right-hander Johnny Barbato. Kelley went 3-6 with a 4.53 ERA in 59 appearances for the Yankees in 2014 and closed briefly for New York when David Robertson was on the disabled list. Barbato is a 22-year-old minor leaguer who posted a 2.87 ERA for the Padres Class-AA San Antonio team and converted 16 saves with 33 strikeouts in 31.1 innings. The right-hander was a sixth-round pick of the Padres... 
 

New York Yankees Making Trades to Contend in the Future

The New York Yankees became creative in its search for starting pitching on Friday, trading 28-year-old swing-man David Phelps and 31-year-old Martin Prado for 24-year-old, Nathan Eovaldi, backup 1B/OF, Garrett Jones and 22-year-old pitching prospect, Domingo German, ranked 20th in the Marlins’ farm system and last seen pitching at the A level. The trade at face value seems like a head-scratcher for New York. Phelps is a homegrown and proven commodity for pitching depth, Prado was arguably the best all-around hitter down the stretch and Eovaldi... 
 

Yankees Add Nathan Eovaldi, Garrett Jones In Trade With Marlins

The New York Yankees and Miami Marlins have agreed on a trade that will send infielder Martin Prado and pitcher David Phelps to Miami in exchange for Nathan Eovaldi, Garrett Jones and Domingo German. Miami also received an undisclosed amount of cash in the deal. Featuring a high-ocatane fastball Eovaldi threw nearly 200 innings, finishing 6-14 with a 4.37 ERA with the Marlins in 2014. He will join a rotation that has question marks with with Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia, Michael Pineda, Chris Capuano and Ivan Nova. Tanaka and Nova... 
 

New York Yankees, Chase Headley Reach Agreement on four-year deal

The New York Yankees and Chase Headley have reached an agreement on a four-year deal worth $52 million according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Headley spent the 2014 season between the San Diego Padres and Yankees, batting .243 with 13 home runs, 20 doubles and 49 RBI in 135 games. He hit .262 with six home runs, eight doubles and 17 RBI in 58 games with New York. Headley has a career .265/.347/.409/.756 slash line in eight MLB seasons. The deal is pending Headley passing a physical. Alex Rodriguez is due back after a year long suspension for... 
 

MLB Free Agent Profile: David Robertson Rumors

Free agent closer David Robertson is set to make big money this offseason. The New York Yankees recently signed reliever Andrew Miller to a four year deal worth $36 million. Robertson reportedly has an offer for three years and $39 million in hand but expect him to sign for more than that. The 29 year-old Robertson has been one of the top strikeout artists in baseball over the course of his seven year career with the Yankees. In that time frame he’s fanned 32 percent of hitters, the 10th best mark and the highest among relievers that have... 
 

New York Yankees Sign Andrew Miller, Acquire Didi Gregorius In Trade

The New York Yankees completed a very busy day signing free-agent southpaw Andrew Miller to a four-year deal reportedly worth $36 million. Earlier today the Yankees, Diamondbacks and Tigers finalized a three-way deal that sent shortstop to Didi Gregorius to New York. Miller weighed offers from several teams before settling on the Bronx Bombers. Miller split time with Boston and Baltimore last year, giving up just 33 hits in 62 1/3 innings with 17 walks and 103 strikeouts. Miller will be a setup man or share the closing duties with Dellin...
