    Miguel Andujar’s agent furious after latest Yankees demotion

    Miguel Andujar’s yo-yo-like season between the Yankees and their alternate site isn’t sitting well with his agent.

    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. A second pitcher’s debut occurring in about as tough a spot as you would construct for your worst enemy. Two streaks of dominance screeching to …

    Yankees option Miguel Andujar to alternate site in tough demotion

    Two years ago, Miguel Andujar was one of the best young players in the majors.

    Yankees roll Phillies as Gerrit Cole approaches history

    Gerrit Cole was good but not overpowering in his initial game wearing Yankee pinstripes. For the first time in six games Aaron Judge didn’t hit a ball into a sea of empty seats. Yet, Cole had enough to limit the Phillies to a run in six innings and Gio Urshela, DJ LeMahieu and Brett Gardner …
