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 the season has come to an end for the Bombers, it’s still fun to check in our favorite players and Yankee figures. Here’s your weekly update on what your favorite Yankees have been doing on social media!
Néstor Cortes Jr. speaks his mind about MLB umpires
The epic National League Division Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers ended on a check swing, but many people (especially Néstor Cortes Jr.) believe that it shouldn’t have. Max Scherzer had two strikes on Wilmer Flores with two outs in the ninth inning before getting him to check his swing. The appeal went down to the first base umpire who said Flores swung, effectively ending the series. I’m sure it was a close one in live time, but Cortes spoke his mind on Twitter.
@mlb umpires need to make a living and I know that but that call is ridiculous— Nestor Cortes (@Cortes_1210) October 15, 2021
Wishing Gio Urshela a happy birthday
Happy birthday to the most happy fella! The infielder turned 30-years-old this past week, celebrating his birthday on October 11. Urshela had a decent season with the Yanks this year, but not as good as years prior, but was injured at points this year. He’ll look to improve in 2022.
Luis Gil says this is just the beginning
If you had to pick a Rookie of the Year for the Yankees, Luis Gil is in the conversation. The 23-year-old starter started six games for New York with a 3.07 ERA, and had a spectacular run where he held his opponents scoreless through the first three starts of his career. In his Instagram post, he says the fan expect more from him soon, and he’s here to give them more!
