YANKEES SCOUT TWO ANGEL’S PITCHERS

The Yankees are scouting two Angle’s lefty pitchers for a possible trade.  The pitchers are:

Tyler Skaggs and Andrew Heaney, a pair of 27-year-old southpaws. Skaggs is in the midst of a career year. He’s pitched to a 2.57 ERA over 98 innings. His peripherals have been outstanding, as well. The southpaw owns a 3.00 FIP and a career-best 9.64 K/9. He also generates a healthy 47.9% groundball rate.

THE BAD, THE BAD AND THE RIDICULOUS

Well Yankees Fans, the latest news…

Jonathan Loaisiga, designated to start one of the two games on Monday, is out indefinitely with a sore shoulder.  He is on his way to be examined by The Yankees Team Doctor.  Instead, we get

GENIUS CASHMAN FEELING HEAT TO MAKE DEAL

Will Yankees GM Brian Cashman make a trade before the July 31st non-waiver deadline? (NJ Advance Media)

It’s no secret Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is shopping for pitching as he looks to improve upon a team which reached Game 7 of the 2017 ALCS.

The Yankees have expressed interest in both Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndegaard of the crosstown Mets, as well as the Rays’ best two starters in Blake Snell and Chris Archer, but the asking price for any of the four is exorbitant.

If he ends up trading for a rental starting pitcher like J.A. Happ or Cole Hamels, it might help their chances of winning the division, but it’s questionable if those type of moves would be a real difference-maker in a postseason.

Heading into the non-waiver trade deadline, it’s abundantly clear that the Yankees want to upgrade their starting rotation. It appears, however, the Bombers are also considering help at first base. According to Jon Morosi, the Yankees have considered swinging a trade for Mike Moustakas, with the intention of sliding the natural third baseman across the infield.

Moustakas, 29, has hit .258/.312/.472 with 16 home runs across 82 games this season. That’s good for a .784 OPS.  If the Yankees could attain Moustakas, they would move him to first.

MY THOUGHTS ON THE YANKEES LOSS TO THE BLUE JAYS

Image result for SONNY GRAY 2018 SALARY
No gifs, cute sayings, jokes.  Sonny Gray, will cost the Yankees the division, if he is left in the rotation.  Genius Cashman, can easily get rid of him.  Gray earns a base rotation of $6,500,000 this season.  Gray cannot pitch for the Yankees.  The fact that Boone said Gray will pitch against Baltimore, is scary.  Whether that comes from Boone or  puppet master Cashman, it is time for Gray to go.  Where: Sand Diego, Pittsburgh, Oakland, Cincy, etc..,,, etc,,..  Gray said he would take the ball.  He will again crap his pants.
On the subject of Boone, whom I have supported, Mr Boone needs to stop giving hitters a green light on 3-0 counts.  Stanton should have taken a pitch with a 3-0 count and the bases loaded.  I would have meant a run and one less out, resulting in more runs.  EDB

YANKEES TO GIVE NEAL WALKER FIRST SHOT TO REPLACE GLEYBER

PROBLEMS IN YANKEE WORLD

 

I could not make this up…

Austin Romine exited tonight’s YankeesRed Sox game early, which seemed perfectly normal given the 11-0 score. However, after the game, Aaron Boone announced that Romine was removed because he is dealing with hamstring tightness. Boone went on to say that the Yankees are monitoring the injury, and are not sure if he will be available for tomorrow’s game. According to Marc Carig, he will get an MRI. Who’s ready for everyday catcher Kyle Higashioka?

Higashioka is 0-24 and is overmatched by major league pitching.  Injuries do happen.  However, why don’t the Yankees have a catcher in the minors to bring up?  There are flaws in Genius Cashman’s game.

EDB, are there any other catchers that the Yankees could bring up?

Wilkin Castillo  Wilken Castillo  Here’s the knock 34 years old.  Not on the 40 man roster.  2018 stats…..244  0 hrs 3 rbis
Francisco Diaz  Francisco Diaz  28 years old like Higashioka  Not on the 40 man roster.  2018 stats…in 126 at bats  .292 1 hr 20  RBIs.
Giovanyy Gallegos was demoted to Scaranton.  I wonder why The Yankees like this guy so much?  He pitched well against The Phillies.  Against The Red Sox, he gave up three runs.  Are there any relievers at Scranton that are better than Gallegos, EDB?  Let’s take a look.
Josh Rogers  Josh Rogers  23 years old, throws left.  He has pitched 86 innings and is probably a  starter.  6-5 with a 3.32 E.R.A.
J.P. Feyereisen  J.P. Feyereisen  25 years old  Throws right  4-2 1.59 1 save
I do not see anyone else.  I hear about all the prospects the Yankees have.  The Yankees need a catcher, a starter and a reliever.  Where are they?  EDB
