It’s been 129 days since Major League Baseball announced the suspension of spring training and the delay of Opening Day. While baseball activities have officially begun, players throughout the league have continued to post often on social media. Let’s check back in and see what some Yankees have been up to this week.

Mike Tauchman

Tauchman received some presents from his teammates this week, and yup, you guessed it, he got socks. In a funny skit with Tommy Kahnle, the Sockman goes through his gifts.

Beck Way

New York picked Beck Way out of Northwest Florida State Junior College with the No. 129 selection in the 2020 MLB Draft. On Tuesday, Way officially signed with the Yanks. He is ranked as the No. 95 prospect in MLB Pipeline’s top 200 from this year’s draft, and Baseball America called him the top junior college prospect.

Masahiro Tanaka

After a freak accident a few weeks ago, Masahiro Tanaka seems to be working his way back to full strength. While he continues to get back on track, Aaron Boone doesn’t think Tanaka will be ready for the season’s start. “I probably would be a little bit surprised if it was the first rotation through,’’ Boone said of Tanaka, who threw 30 pitches in the pen workout.

Aaron Judge

New York’s six outfielders had some fun in the field during practice by playing basketball with baseballs. Always good to see the squad having some fun during tough times like this.

DJ LeMahieu

The Machine is back! The Yankees put together this awesome video hyping up the return of DJ LeMahieu. The 32-year-old tested positive for COVID-19 a couple weeks ago, but has been cleared to return to baseball.

Domingo German

After a confusing few posts on his social media where he may have announced his retirement, German posted clarification that he is indeed not leaving the game of baseball.
