Frazier has shown signs of improvement and maturity this off-season, and he played well in the limited action he did receive.

After splitting the first two games and failing to provide any offensive power in game two, the Yankees battled to earn a late lead in their 3-2 win on Sunday.

    New York Yankees option Clint Frazier to their alternate training site By: Andres Chavez July 26, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Yankees decided to option outfielder Clint Frazier to their alternate training site in their latest roster move. Right-handed reliever Ben Heller was also optioned. The club will recall righties Nick Nelson and Brooks Kriske to the active roster.

It seems as if manager Aaron Boone is not afraid to start Miguel Andujar in left field, as he inserted him into the lineup before today’s game. Andujar, who has been working in left field this off-season, provides more offensive capabilities, which is why he’s being inserted. While he missed a majority of 2019 with a torn labrum, he was...

He allowed four straight hits and walk for two runs to score, and left the bases loaded for Michael King in...

The New York Yankees will have to make logical moves to improve their roster, especially on offense, as they scored just two runs against a lackluster Washington Nationals pitcher on Saturday evening. However, some players have already got off to a poor start, and while two games is a very small sample size to judge, we must consider everything in a different way this season. On Opening Day, the Yankees...

James Paxton got through the first but gave up three runs in the second inning in his first failed attempt to win for the Yankees this season. Michael King replaced Paxton to close out the second. It was a bit unusual because the Yankees did not roll out their best relievers in the game. In the third inning, Gio Urchsela singled and then stole second. Brett Gardner...
