We have kept you posted on what the Yankees have been up to on social media ever since baseball shut down last March. We are one step closer to the new baseball season as the first couple weeks of spring training games are in the books. Here’s your weekly update on what your favorite Yankees have been doing on social media!
The Aarons gear up for Opening Day
The Yankees have three Aarons on their team: Aaron Boone, Aaron Judge, and Aaron Hicks. Coincidentally enough, all three of them are featured in this week’s social media spotlight! Boone is locking it in for Opening Day, and Judge is counting down the days until then. Hicks isn’t sweating it too much though, as he’s soaking in the Florida sun down in Tampa.
Stanton and Monty post action shots
Giancarlo Stanton and Jordan Montgomery both shared photos of them on the field. Monty pitched on St. Patrick’s Day, so he sported the green Yankees hat on the mound. The southpaw threw five no-hit innings in his start against Toronto. I’d say he’s just about ready to start the season!
Stanton has been all smiles this spring, hitting .333 with a 1.011 OPS in 21 at-bats. He posted this picture on Instagram with the caption “ambiguous.”
Frazier says he’s fine
Clint Frazier has been dealing with a minor injury and was held out of the Yankees’ game on Saturday, but the outfielder should be back soon. Amid the panic among the rabid fanbase, “Red Thunder” calmed everyone down himself.

Frazier made some headlines earlier this week, but not because of his play. It was because of his apparel. He had a Mickey Mantle t-shirt on during a press conference, and showed it to the media. He admitted that he didn’t know Mantle was a switch-hitter until he bought the shirt.
Britton updates us on his surgery
Zack Britton recently underwent orthoscopic surgery to remove a bone chip from his throwing elbow. The recovery timetable for this injury does vary, but it’s said to mainly be around three-to-four months. He tweeted after the procedure thanking Dr. Ahmad and the staff, and is excited to get back to work soon!
Want to thank Dr. Ahmad and his staff for their excellent work today. Excited to start the process of getting myself ready to rejoin the boys!— Zack Britton (@zbritton) March 15, 2021
