And Loaisiga is shut down for four weeks with another arm issue, he may never be healthy.
It’s amazing how Stanton’s injury was not big news when it happened, and even more amazing how the Yanks have played with both Stanton and Judge sidelined.Sounds like surgery decision on Andujar to be made by tomorrow EOD. Have to figure they’re leaning the surgery route given Urshela’s emergence and Didi’s potential return in the next month or so.
If Stanton can ever return from the shoulder issue, the DH is probably spoken for.
Yup. Stanton situation is just weird. Hurt his bicep, healed, and then somehow hurt his shoulder. Hopefully he can return by early June. Yankees have done tremendous job holding it all together. This will be a juggernaut by July when everyone is back other than Severino.It’s amazing how Stanton’s injury was not big news when it happened, and even more amazing how the Yanks have played with both Stanton and Judge sidelined.
Is there anything to be learned from the 16-6 run the Yankees have been on lately? They took two of three from Boston, Tampa and the Twins. Three contenders.
Except MIN has possibly bumped CLE, and the likely SPs in any wild card game will probably be far better than Ervin Santana and Liam Hendriks, the two guys NY has faced the last two seasons.So, basically, we’re back to 2017/2018 and we’ll see who emerges in October.
Bullpen for sure.Also that Loaisiga move takes him out of the rotation picture probably for the season, Severino and Montgomery due back before him as of now. NY is thin after the current 5 (including Paxton) without any of those, maybe Chance Adams or David Hale is next up.
Disappointing on Loaisiga, he has incredible stuff, but he has never been able to stay healthy, that’s how NY got him in the first place. Maybe a bullpen weapon down the line or a trade chip...
I think it’ll be some time before Didi plays every day at SS. I’m gonna venture a guess that there’s at least 2 weeks of working him in.NY is going to face some tough roster moves if everyone gets healthy ever, but the first two seem pretty easy and obvious.
CC is scheduled to be activated tomorrow, and Cortes Jr. should go down then. Didi is on track to be activated next week sometime (if Scranton ever stops getting rained out and he can get enough games in) and the accompanying move there seemingly has to be DFAing Kendrys Morales (someone elsewhere suggested offering him a job as assistant hitting coach, I'm down with that). LeMahieu will back up Voit at 1B.
Yowza indeed. Holy shit! Astros and Yankees lineups aren’t even fair.I think this means Clint Frazier is even more likely to be dealt for pitching, so maybe we are looking at something like this once Stanton and Judge are back in a week or so:
Urshela and Gardner on the bench, Clint traded. Every guy in that lineup except DJ has 30 HR potential. Yowza.
Judge and Stanton take the corner OF spots, Encarnacion is the DH, and Clint Frazier can be dealt for a much-needed SP. The price was too cheap to pass on, money and prospect both.With Judge and Stanton due back soon, EE didn't seem to be a screaming need.
I guess Scherzer wasn't available today
Tauchman too, but he will go down for Stanton after tomorrow's game. Clint said he expected to be sent down when Judge and Stanton came back, it's just a bit earlier than anyone expected, but it shows that NY doesn't really trust him in the OF right now against TB.Having options is a curse. But it was either him or Maybin, who is a polished player.
I posted this on social media last night but I resisted posting it here until now, I did this after the trade last night.This is looking like a slow pitch softball team. Damn
You gotta play defense against Tampa because their pitching dictates low-scoring games. Clint proved he can’t play right field. Injuries dictated he do it on short notice. But he had early-season problems in left field, too. My worry is he goes down to Scranton and acts like he doesn't belong there. So here is where Scranton manager Jay Bell takes over. Ex-big leaguer.Tauchman too, but he will go down for Stanton after tomorrow's game. Clint said he expected to be sent down when Judge and Stanton came back, it's just a bit earlier than anyone expected, but it shows that NY doesn't really trust him in the OF right now against TB.
