Baseball is back! We have kept you up to date with what the Yankees have been up to on social media ever since baseball shutdown back in March. Although the season is underway, we’ll still provide weekly updates on what your favorite Yankees do when they’re not on the diamond!

Masahiro Tanaka

No Yankees fan dislikes Masahiro Tanaka—that’s a fact. After his final regular season start of the 2020 season this past week, he reflected on these past seven years in pinstripes and noted how it could be his last.

The caption is in his native language of Japanese, but here’s the rough translation: “In 2020, and with a 7-year contract, I have pitched for the last time in the regular season. The result was disappointing. However, I still have a chance to start over in the playoffs, so I would like to make adjustments from tomorrow! I would like to look back on it after the season is over. The photo is before or after the 2014 Yankees press conference.”

Tanaka has been a staple on the team since he signed back in 2013 and has been one of the best postseason pitchers of the decade with a 1.76 ERA over 46 frames. It will certainly be sad if this is the last we see of Tanaka in the Bronx.

Gerrit Cole

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Gerrit and his wife Amy have teamed up with Rady Children’s Hospital to “Catch a Cure.” Even their son Caden is repping the shirt! Good work by the Cole family.

Giancarlo Stanton

The fourth anniversary of José Fernández’s tragic death was on Friday. Giancarlo Stanton, who was a teammate of Fernández in Miami, posted a photo to remember his friend.
