Baltimore Orioles outfielder Mark Trumbo’s disappointing start to the 2017 campaign continued last night, going 0-for-3 with a walk and a run versus the Red Sox. Trumbo’s batting average now sits at an even .200, and while his BABIP of .247 suggests better luck is on the horizon, even patient owners have begun to look... Read More

New York Yankees starter Luis Severino was dealing on Thursday versus the Rays, striking out 11 while only allowing five hits, two walks and two runs before yielding to Dellin Betances in the eighth. Severino was a bit of a disaster for the Yankees in 2016 with an ERA of 5.83 in 71 innings, but... Read More

Michael Pineda gave up a solo shot to Corey Dickerson to start his 2017 campaign, and things didn’t improve much from there. Pineda allowed seven more hits and was pulled after 3 2/3 innings after giving up a total of four runs. Owners will point to the six strikeouts and zero walks as a reason... Read More

After the first two years of Chase Headley’s four-year, $52 million contract, it looked like the Yankees had made a mistake.

CC Sabathia pitched five strong innings to collect the win versus Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Sabathia limited the Rays to three hits and two walks on the back of an 8-to-0 groundout-to-flyout ratio.

Masahiro Tanaka finished the 2016 season with a sterling 3.07 ERA, good for third in the American League. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, little of that talent was on display in today’s loss versus the Rays. Tanaka was rocked for seven earned runs, eight hits, two walks and only three strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings. This... Read More

The youth movement in New York hit a speed bump today when the exciting duo of Gary Sanchez and Greg Bird went a combined 0-for-9 in the Yankees' 7-3 loss to the Rays. The pair lit up spring training but found no success against Chris Archer or the Rays bullpen. Sanchez worked the count full... Read More

Mark Trumbo concluded a disappointing spring training, batting .212 in 52 homerless at-bats. Last season, Trumbo led the major leagues with 47 home runs, averaging a home run every 13 at-bats. Based on those lofty power numbers, the Orioles signed the 31-year-old righty to a three-year, $37 million extension this January. With an ADP of... Read More

After a hot spring training, the Yankees announced Aaron Judge as their opening day starter in right field. With a triple-slash line of .333/.391/.540, the Yankees’ 2013 first-round selection earned the start over the switch-hitting Aaron Hicks. Judge hit three home runs this spring, demonstrating some of the potential power scouts see in his 6-foot-7... Read More
