The Yankees finally returned from a nightmarish west coast trip, which means it’s time for another “Ask Pinstripe Alley” mailbag.
Since our last chat, the Bombers have gone 11 - 12. Those series out west really hurt. On the bright side, Aaron Judge continued to mash. He currently leads the American League in All-Star voting. CC Sabathia pitched well, too, but unfortunately he landed on the disabled list with a Grade 2 hamstring strain. The left-hander’s expected to miss four to eight weeks. Aroldis Chapman returned, but Gary Sanchez and Aaron Hicks got banged up and missed a handful of games. Overall, it’s been a mixed bag for the Yankees.
All questions are welcome, whether about Greg Bird’s recent setback, Masahiro Tanaka’s continued struggles, or any Yankees thoughts that come to mind. You can leave your question in the comment section, or send them in an e-mail at pinstripealleyblog [at] gmail [dot] com. Any questions received by Saturday night on June 24th will be eligible. Thanks!
