Around the Empire: Yankees news - 11/1/21

Anthony Volpe shouldn’t impact Yankees’ shortstop plans this winter; Jameson Taillon undergoes surgery on right ankle, out five months; Beloved Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy passes at age-68

Syndication: Poughkeepsie Journal Patrick Oehler/Poughkeepsie Journal via Imagn Content Services, LLC | Jim Callis: One of MLB’s top prospect analysts opines on how Anthony Volpe’s meteoric rise in 2021 could impact the Yankees’ shortstop plans this offseason. Despite Volpe’s incredible development, Callis feels that the prospect won’t affect the Yankees’ approach very much. Volpe still has something like a 2023 ETA, and could slide to second if the Yankees have an entrenched star shortstop under contract.

New York Post | Dan Martin: Right-hander Jameson Taillon officially underwent ankle surgery a few days ago, finally putting his recovery process in motion. Taillon tore a tendon in his right ankle in September, put pitched through pain and even delivered a crucial start in the final game of the season. He’s expected to miss five months, so it’s unlikely he’ll be ready for the beginning of the next season. | Ian Browne: Beloved Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy passed away at the age of 68 after a long fight with cancer. Remy was born in Somerset, Massachusetts and played seven seasons as the Red Sox second baseman, before putting in 34 seasons as a NESN announcer.
