Hello everyone, hope you’re doing well. The Yankees were glad to be back in Yankee Stadium yesterday, improving to 5-0 at home with a win over the Braves. They’ll finish their short two-game set with Atlanta later tonight, and we’ll have a game thread and recap for it later on.

We’ve got some stories to tide you over ‘till then, beginning with Peter looking into another way the Yankees could deal with James Paxton’s velocity issues. Cooper looks into the issues in Miguel Andújar’s swing that have hindered his progress since his rookie year, and Joe revisits Mike Tauchman and how he has earned his way into the lineup.
