Reggie Willits' journey continues as New York Yankees coach

Masahiro Tanaka made a decision to return to the Yankees rather than test free agency.

He too was drafted by the New York Yankees in the 13th round of the 2004 Major League Baseball Draft. Thames and Pilittere will be expected to help that process stay as consistent as possible all season long.

Last season, Hughes went 4-3 with a 5.87 ERA in 14 appearances, including nine starts.

Hypebeast is reporting that the 2017-18 Rookie of The Year winner/MVP runner-up has signed his first endorsement deal with - you guessed it - adidas (Nike's been letting some major superstars slip past their fingers).

Baseball teams at all levels always try to find ways to make their team unique to the rest of the league. Most days, each of those four should be able to turn it over to a deep bullpen that features Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances and David Robertson, all of whom have closed games in the past. The energy, to pair with his electric stuff and youth bodes well for the Yankees as they may have found a generational type ace in Severino.

Pedroia goes all out in every game and is a great example of how baseball is a sport in which a player does not have to be a behemoth to succeed - Houston's Jose Altuve is an even better example.

A Yankees spokesperson also added to the conversation about why the Yankees showed off their new ideas.


On Thursday, the Yankees will begin finding out how Judge fares when Stanton is standing in the on-deck circle behind him.

But soon after the menu reveals, the league quickly sent a cease letter to the team after images of players Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Gary Sanchez, and others were put into the foam of the cups of beer.

Stanton has spent part of the spring developing chemistry with Judge. There may be quite a few games where NY has to rely upon that offense to end up in the win column.

In case you forgot: The 2009 Yankees had one of the best infields (A-Rod, Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano, Mark Teixeira) of all time, won 103 games and took down a Phillies team in the World Series that was their for the second-straight season. Arizona pitcher Zack Greinke fell one spot to third at $31.95 million, followed by a trio at $30 million: Philadelphia pitcher Jake Arrieta, Price and Detroit first baseman Miguel Cabrera.

"The 6'7", 282-pound outfielder burst onto the scene a year ago, hitting.284/.422/.627 while smashing an AL-leading 52 home runs-the most ever by a rookie-and knocking in 114.

Taking on money to acquire talent will more often than not serve a team well, as the Yankees' presumptive opening day designated hitter can confirm.
