Yankees potential trade target: Scott Barlow

Photo by Jamie Squire/ The Royals reliever is good, cheap, and controllable for two seasons beyond 2022. What’s not to like? If one looks at the list of Yankees relievers who have missed time with injury this year, they would find a lot of names between those who are currently physically unable to play and those who have underperformed according to preseason expectations. Zack Britton, Aroldis Chapman, Jonathan Loáisiga, Michael King, Chad Green, Ron Marinaccio, Stephen Ridings, and Miguel Castro are some of those names. Only Chapman, Loáisiga, and Marinaccio are...

Yankees potential trade target: Steve Cishek

Photo by Ron Jenkins/ The Nationals sidearmer could bring a new look to the Yankees bullpen. On the whole, the Yankees bullpen ought to be considered a strength: Clay Holmes is one of the game’s top closers, Wandy Peralta and Lucas Luetge have been consistently above-average, if a bit prone to occasional meltdowns, and rookie Ron Marinaccio has been a pleasant surprise. Even so, that doesn’t mean the Yankees couldn’t use another arm or two. With the injury to Michael King and the inability of Aroldis Chapman and Jonathan Loáisiga to get their seasons back on...

NYY @ BAL: Gerrit Cole vs. Jordan Lyles

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees send their ace to the hill trying to win a series at Camden Yesterday was the definition of a Pyrrhic victory for the Yankees, a 7-6 win that saw Michael King fracture his elbow and Aroldis Chapman continue to be unreliable. With three straight tough games in two days coming out of the All Star break, New York could use a laugher, and the ballclub has a good shot with Gerrit Cole on the mound against the Orioles tonight. Cole has, once again, provided the mix of workhorse innings and high-ceiling performance that are asked of...

Yankees potential trade target: Scott Effross

Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/ Scott Effross has quietly been one of the best relievers in the National League this season and would make sense for the Yankees. Will Chicago be willing to discuss him, though? As we have said many times, bullpen help isn’t the Yankees biggest need. If they can get the best version of Jonathan Loáisiga and help Aroldis Chapman regain some consistency, they should have an elite unit headlined by Clay Holmes, Michael King, Wandy Peralta, Lucas Luetge, and another group of potential contributors like Albert Abreu, JP Sears, and Clarke...

Should we be worried about Aroldis Chapman’s stuff?

Should we be worried about Aroldis Chapman’s stuff?

Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports Maybe this is the reason for big lefty’s control issues. We’re here to answer one question. Why and how has Aroldis Chapman been so bad? PSA’s own Sam Chapman dove into the Yankees Chapman’s trouble with control in 2022. Obviously that is a big piece of the puzzle, but there is more to it on top of that. Is his control all over the place because he isn’t confident in his stuff? In other words, is his potentially depleted repertoire messing with his feel and mechanics? This is certainly possible, and luckily, we can answer this...

Aroldis Chapman still can’t find the zone

Aroldis Chapman still can’t find the zone

Photo by Adam Glanzman/MLB Photos via Since his return, Aroldis Chapman has had trouble locating, yanking a concerning amount of his pitches. In his first outing after being reinstated from the injured list, Aroldis Chapman took the mound in Cleveland, walked the first three batters he faced, and was taken out of the game. The Yankees were up 8-2 at the time, and ended up winning by nine runs, so it wasn’t the end of the world, but it was certainly a concerning return for the left-hander. Even if one disregarded that July 2nd appearance, his subsequent outings have...
