  • Tanaka leads Yankees to 9-3 win over Red Sox in series opener at Fenway April 23, 2014
    That win was much easier than the last one. The Yankees jumped out to early lead against the Red Sox on Tuesday night before piling on in the middle innings and walking away with a 9-3 win in the series opener. Early Runs This game started almost exactly like I hoped it would: with a […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogTanaka leads Yankees […]

  • Judge and Bichette continue to rake in losses April 23, 2014
    Got some notes to pass along: RHP Ty Hensley threw a bullpen session today, according to his Twitter feed. He missed all of last year after having surgery on both hips, and he’s been slowed by a hernia early this year. Not sure how long he’s been throwing off a mound. RHP Shane Greene will […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogJudge and Biche […]

  • Game 20: Tanaka takes Fenway April 22, 2014
    This game is a Very Big Deal. Or at least that’s what we’ll hear all night (and all series, really) because it is Masahiro Tanaka‘s first career start in Fenway Park. Everything is bigger when it comes to the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry and acting like mid-April games are more meaningful than they really are is […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees b […]

  • Surgery recommended for Ivan Nova following second opinion April 22, 2014
    After being re-evaluated by team doctor Dr. Ahmad on Monday, surgery has been recommended for Ivan Nova‘s partially torn ulnar collateral ligament, the Yankees announced. An MRI arthrogram confirmed the original diagnosis. Nova, 27, left Saturday’s start with a sore elbow and initial tests revealed the partial UCL tear. Rest and rehab never seems to […]Post […]

  • 4/22-4/24 Series Preview: Boston Red Sox April 22, 2014
    For the second time in a little more than a week, the Yankees and Red Sox meet for what is sure to be a tense, time-consuming, over-hyped, and over-analyzed series. This time the scene shifts to Boston and Fenway Park. The Yankees won three of four from their rivals in the Bronx the weekend before […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog4/22-4/ […]

  • Yankees activate David Robertson off 15-day DL April 22, 2014
    As expected, the Yankees have activated closer David Robertson off the 15-day DL, the team announced. He missed the minimum 15 days with a groin strain. Robertson threw in the bullpen last week and pitched in an Extended Spring Training game over the weekend. Bryan Mitchell was returned to Double-A Trenton yesterday to clear a […]Post from: River Ave. Blues […]

  • Thoughts following the off-day April 22, 2014
    There was no update on Ivan Nova yesterday after he had his partially torn ulnar collateral ligament re-evaluated in New York during the off-day. It’s tough not to assume the worst and it has nothing to do with the lack of an update. Partially torn UCLs almost always result in Tommy John surgery at some […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogT […]

  • Judge, Severino have big days in Charleston win April 22, 2014
    RHP Bryan Mitchell was named the Double-A Eastern League Pitcher of the Week. Not a bad week for him. He struck out 12 in six innings on Monday, turned 23 on Saturday, got called up to the big leagues on Sunday, and was named Pitcher of the Week today. That one day in the show […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogJudge, Severino have big day […]

  • It’s official: NYC Football Club will play home games in Yankee Stadium in 2015 April 22, 2014
    As expected, the New York City Football Club will play its home games in Yankee Stadium during the 2015 season, it was announced. The expansion Major League Soccer franchise was unable to build a stadium of their own, so they will play in the Bronx for the time being. The Yankees co-own the team along […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogIt’ […]

  • Monday Night Open Thread April 21, 2014
    Two years ago today, the Yankees made a monster comeback from a 9-0 deficit to beat the Red Sox 15-9 at Fenway Park. I’m sure you remember that game. The only reason I realized today was the anniversary because it happened on the same day as Phil Humber’s perfect game — I remember FOX cut […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogMonday Night Ope […]
