The Views from 314ft Podcast Episode 61: Pro-gression

Randy and Rohan return in the middle of Randy’s move to discuss what’s been an up -and-down stretch of play for the Yankees. The duo break down what went wrong over the weekend against the Red Sox and whether any negative trends are concerning. They also talk about the recent hot stretches from Gary Sánchez and Miguel Andújar and the consistent dominance from Aaron Judge. They also discuss positive signs in the underlying metrics that have led to success about the Twins. They close with a look ahead to the trade deadline and which players they Yankees might target to bolster the roster.

Game 61: Thank you, Minnesota

The perfect gif for the occasion.

The Yankees’ four-game losing streak is over. New York beat the Twins 8-4 in the first of three at Minnesota. It’s really too bad that the Twins aren’t in the AL East. The Yankees would never lose the division. Anyway, let’s get to tonight’s takeaways.

Good morning everyone. And it is indeed a good morning — the Yankees have won the first two of this week’s series against the Rays at Tropicana Field and go for the sweep tonight. It’s really nice to finally see the team win a couple of games at that awful excuse of a ballpark. With that out of the way, let’s get to some of my Yankees-related thoughts.

On the catcher situation. I understand why the Yankees turned to Kyle Higashioka more than Gary Sánchez toward the end of last month, but at this point, we’re starting to see Higgy’s limitations as a near-everyday player. Keep in mind that this is someone who hasn’t caught a significant workload since 2016, when he caught 102 games split between Double-A and Triple-A.

Yankees Spring Training News & Notes: March 15, 2021

@HoodieGleyber

John Sterling and Michael Kay reunited for this afternoon’s broadcast on YES for the first time in two decades. A little bit of nostalgia was heartwarming on this freezing day in New York, no?

If you missed the duo’s reunion, you’ll have another chance to catch them together on March 22nd. That one’s a 6:30pm ballgame, so work may not interfere for some of you like it may have this afternoon.

Sterling and Kay got to call a 4-2 win over the Phillies. Domingo Germán was sharp again, which I’ll expand upon in a moment. Giancarlo Stanton had another nice game too. He tallied two hits, both absolutely crushed (110 and 120 MPH exit velos), and drove in two runs. Gary Sánchez and Rob Brantly pitched in a couple of RBI singles as well. Not that Grapefruit League records mean anything, but this win was the team’s sixth straight, moving the Yanks to 10-4. Now, onto the big story.

Got a few tidbits to pass along today. Not much yet with regard to the hot stove, but there are a few things Yankees-related that have happened in recent days. Let’s get to it.

An update on Yankees in LIDOM

Domingo Germán pitched in his first professional game since his suspension for domestic violence began at the end of the 2019 season. He contributed four no-hit innings with seven strikeouts in Toros del Este’s combined no-hitter in its season opener. We still haven’t heard anything about Germán’s future with the Yankees other than Hal Steinbrenner’s words last month.

For whatever it’s worth, I found it interesting that Germán wasn’t listed on the following YES graphic yesterday:

Not sure if that means anything. Anyway, let’s move on to other players in the organization down in the DR.
