Since baseball shut down in March of last year, we have kept you posted on what the Yankees have been up to on social media. Although baseball is getting back to normal, it’s still fun to check in our favorite players and Yankee figures, so we will continue to do so throughout 2021. Here’s your weekly update on what your favorite Yankees have been doing on social media!

Yankees thank the fans

The 2021 season came to an early and abrupt end last week as they lost the Wild Card Game to the Boston Red Sox. The year was filled with highs and lows, but they couldn’t get the job done in the end. After the loss, the Yankees thanked the fans for their support on social media.

At the end of April, the Yankees acquired Wandy Peralta in exchange for Mike Tauchman. Peralta was an awesome addition for the Yanks as he threw 42.2 frames for them with a 2.95 ERA and 35 strikeouts. After the season ended, Peralta thanked the fans for the support throughout the year.

Another player that joined the Yankees this year was Lucas Luetge, who hadn’t pitched in the majors since 2015. The southpaw was extremely reliable for Aaron Boone this year as he tossed 72.1 innings with. 2.74 ERA and accumulated 1.5 fWAR in 57 games. Like Peralta, he thanked the fans and reminisced on his season.

Ken Singleton says goodbye

Legendary announcer Ken Singleton has retired from the broadcast booth after 24 years with the Yankees. He took to Twitter to thank the fans and was glad his last game was an exciting walk-off win that propelled the Yankees into the Wild Card Game. See what Kenny tweeted after his final game.
