The Yankees aren’t going to win the AL East this week, but they sure can send a message to all potential challengers.
Nathan Eovaldi pitched scoreless, five-hit ball into the sixth inning, Garrett Jones homered and the New York Yankees snapped their three-game skid with a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.
The Miami Marlins scored a franchise record eight first-inning runs Tuesday against former teammate Nathan Eovaldi and beat the New York Yankees 12-2.
Denard Span had a run-scoring infield hit with two outs in the 11th inning, and the Washington Nationals snapped the New York Yankees’ seven-game winning streak with a 5-4 victory Wednesday.
Brett Gardner, Brian McCann and Chase Headley homered during an eight-run first inning and the New York Yankees romped past the AL Central-leading Kansas City Royals 14-1 Monday.
The Bronx Bombers are about to bomb, for the third straight season. No tweet or Twitter troll can change that truth.
The decision to go with the 26-year-old international sensation means CC Sabathia’s streak of opening day starts with the Yankees will end at six.
Alex Rodriguez went 2 for 3 and singled in a run for his first RBI since a season-long suspension, helping the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 Monday.
Nathan Eovaldi gave up two hits over four shutout innings and the New York Yankees beat a Philadelphia Phillies split squad 3-2 Sunday.
“It’s absolutely good,” Tanaka said through a translator. “I think the No. 1 thing is throwing it a little bit harder than last time.”
When healthy, the Yankees’ top three of Tanaka, Pineda and Sabathia could be as good as any in baseball. The problem: they have to prove they’re no longer damaged goods.
There are projects and then there’s the curious case of Nathan Eovaldi.
The biggest sideshow in sports is a few weeks away from turning Yankees spring training upside-down. Brian Cashman is ready for the Alex Rodriguez experience.
In two weeks, pitchers and catchers will report with a starting five comprised of three legitimate injury risks, one young flamethrower in Eovaldi and an average swingman in Capuano.
The question is, can fireballer Nathan Eovaldi take the next step, a la Nolan Ryan? If he does, then Brian Cashman will look like a true genius.
