Yankees Mailbag: Andrew Heaney, the catching pipeline, and the playoff race

Photo by Rich Schultz/ The mailbag addresses concerns across the board this week. Good afternoon everyone, let’s open up the mailbag for more of your Yankees questions. Remember to send in your questions for our weekly call by e-mail to pinstripealleyblog [at] gmail [dot] com. Pistol23 asks: Andrew Heaney doesn’t seem to have a well defined role currently, while it seems that there are several options in AA/AAA that would be better, including Warren and Marinaccio, and possibly Wesneski. Are the Yankees not DFAing Heaney because they have plans for him beyond this...

The Yankees need to manage Chad Green’s innings

The Yankees need to manage Chad Green’s innings

D. Ross Cameron-USA TODAY Sports The usually reliable right-hander clearly hit a wall, and the team needs to make sure he is healthy and fresh. For years, Chad Green has been one of the most reliable relief pitchers on the Yankees’ roster. His career 3.25 ERA (3.35 FIP), 32.8 percent strikeout rate and a 6.2 percent walk rate in 360.1 innings are proof of that. But right now, he is evidently not pitching well. Green has been scored upon in his last four appearances, allowing five runs in a span of 4.1 innings. Even worse is the fact that he has conceded home runs in...

Hispanic Yankee Greats of Days Past: Luis Arroyo

Hispanic Yankee Greats of Days Past: Luis Arroyo

Frank Becerra Jr/USA TODAY via Imagn Content Services, LLC Arroyo was the lead bullpen arm for the 1961 World Series champion Yankees.

To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (Sep. 15th – Oct. 15th) at Pinstripe Alley, we will be highlighting the stories of Hispanic Yankee greats both unheralded and iconic. This week, we will celebrating the great career of the Puerto...

New York’s two cultural pillars: Yankees and Broadway

Photo by ED JONES/AFP via As Broadway returns to the stage this week, we look at the historical relationship between the Yankees and the theatre. Earlier this year, the return of fans to Yankee Stadium, first in limited capacities and then with unrestricted attendance, marked a major milestone in the reopening of New York, a city that was both among the first cities hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and among its hardest hit. This week saw another major stage in the city’s return to (a new) normalcy, as Broadway’s biggest shows — Wicked, Hamilton, and The Lion King...

New York Yankees vs. Cleveland: Series Preview

New York Yankees vs. Cleveland: Series Preview

Photo by Rich Schultz/ The Bombers kick off a six-game home stand with a matchup against Cleveland. The last month has been a rollercoaster for the Yankees and their fans. They looked invincible during their 13-game winning streak, and like the most stagnant team in baseball during the ensuing 3-12 stretch. After that dismal run of games, things started to look up again — that is, until they lost a pitiful contest to the Orioles to put them on the outside looking in vis-à-vis the AL Wild Card race. They will look to turn the page on that embarrassment with a strong...

Today on Pinstripe Alley - 9/17/21

Photo by Greg Fiume/ The next-to-last homestand kicks off tonight. The Orioles delivered one last sucker punch to the Yankees’ season, taking away another win when most clubs dismantle them with little effort. There’s little use dwelling on it at this point since the season series is spoken for at last, but it’ll surely be something to look back on regardless of how the rest of the year plays out. Anyways, the Yankees will have to regroup quick, heading back home for one more homestand prior to the season finale against Tampa. It starts off with a series against...

Yankees may regret the one pitch that got away in brutal loss to Orioles

It was one two-strike pitch to .189-hitting Austin Wynns -- a sailing 98-mph sinker thrown by Clay Holmes -- that caromed off the glove of Gary Sanchez and allowed the tying run to score.

Yankees 2, Orioles 3: Another fine pitching performance wasted in a devastating defeat

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees found themselves in a tight struggle in Baltimore, and discovered yet another gut-wrenching way to lose a baseball game. On Tuesday night, the Yankees did what they should do, easily handling the Orioles in a 7-2 win. Over the next two games, the Yankees haven’t quite done their job, failing to separate from the O’s and finding themselves locked in uncomfortably tight battles with the lackluster Baltimore side. They took the first two of the series, but just couldn’t get the sweep across the finish line. With a chance to...
