    Yankees face unfamiliar problem finding Gerrit Cole rotation help

    Deivi Garcia is the ‘fearless’ key to Yankees’ playoff chances

    It’s only been four starts, but Deivi Garcia has made quite an impression on his Yankees teammates. Gary Sanchez called him “fearless.” Gerrit Cole said of Garcia, “I really like what I see.” And it’s easy to tell why. The 21-year-old won again in Tuesday’s romp over the Blue Jays thanks to an eruption from …

    Deivi Garcia has ‘so many’ questions after talking to idol Pedro Martinez

    Yankees rookie hurler Deivi Garcia likely lived out his childhood dream when he received a call from his idol Pedro Martinez after his MLB debut on Aug. 30.

    Yankees can exhale — for one night, at least

    BUFFALO — For a change, it was hard to hear Aaron Boone as he settled behind the microphone and in front of the Zoom camera. For a change, you could hear strands of loud music bleeding though the walls of the visiting clubhouse at Sahlen Field, the sure sign that a baseball game had gone, …

    Clarke Schmidt’s debut shows the Yankees are still in peril

    It turned out to be, in every way, the exact opposite of the narrative the Yankees wanted to craft Friday night. One young pitcher’s encore falling short of his debut.

    What Pedro Martinez loved about Deivi Garcia’s ‘excellent’ Yankees debut

    Deivi Garcia earned comparisons to Pedro Martinez long before reaching the majors. A brilliant debut in pinstripes only drew more parallels between the 21-year-old and Hall of Famer. Martinez, 48, doesn’t seem to have a problem with it. After watching the fellow Dominican Republic native give up just one unearned run over six innings in …

    Deivi Garcia gives Yankees hope in weekend of bad baseball: Sherman

    Gerrit Cole did not start over the weekend. Neither did Masahiro Tanaka. Yet, the only part of the Yankees team that performed well against the Mets was the rotation — or the area they are most trying to improve before the 4 p.m. Monday trade deadline. Deivi Garcia punctuated the effort by Yankee starters with …

    Deivi Garcia sensational in long-awaited Yankees debut

    Yankees fans have been anticipating Deivi Garcia’s arrival in The Bronx since last summer. The 21-year-old’s major league debut was worth the wait.
