New, comments

Many Yankees players have been posting their workouts on social media, showing us how they’re prepping for the upcoming season.

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

Hicks readying for season

We are (hopefully) a few months away from the start of the 2021 MLB season. Aaron Hicks will be entering his sixth season in pinstripes and he’s making sure he’s more than ready. After a season where he hit just .225 and six homers, he will be looking to make more of an impact for New York this upcoming season.

Deivi García working on his long toss

The 21-year-old flamethrower has been posting his workouts pretty consistently this offseason. García will seemingly have an increased role on the team in 2021 as the starting rotation will have to adapt to what will most likely be one or more players departing via free agency. Deivi had a 4.98 ERA last season over 34.1 frames.

Miguel Andújar posts home run from Dominican Winter League

The Yankees infielder/outfielder has been playing in the Dominican Republic this offseason. Here, he blasted a homer over the fence and posted a video of him rounding the bases for all of us to see. If Andújar can return to the player he was at the plate in 2017, that would be a huge boost to the Bombers offense.

Gleyber misses the Bronx Zoo

We miss you too, Gleyber. Hopefully fans are allowed in the ballpark this year and cheer for the Yankees in-person. Things may be looking up for New York sports fans attending games in 2021 as the Buffalo Bills just hosted a playoff game in which Governor Andrew Cuomo and State Health Commissioner Howard Zucker agreed to permit 6,700 at the team’s 71,000-seat stadium.
