Yankees at the break: Outfield corners

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jul 13, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Brett Gardner and Nick Swisher each started the season with horrible numbers. Gardner lost his grip on the leadoff spot by the end of April, and Swisher sat for two days so that he could get his swing together. Lately, they’ve both been back to last year’s level of production.

First half
As recently as May 25, Swisher was hitting just .208 with just two home runs. He was frustrated and it was beginning to show. Since then, he’s hit .302/.420/.566 with eight homers and the same over-the-top attitude that made him a fan favorite. Gardner was hitting .188 with a .273 on-base percentage at the end of April, but in the past two and a half months he’s hit .292 with a .374 on-base. He’s also become a much more dangerous and effective base stealer. He’s been streaky, but he’s also been productive, and he’s played his usual Gold Glove caliber defense.

Second half
Unless the Yankees decide to replace Andruw Jones on the bench, they really have no need for an outfield upgrade. Gardner’s not a typical corner outfielder, but he’s been effective with his unusual approach at the plate and his game-changing speed on the bases. Swisher has regained last year’s form and is once again one of the Yankees most dangerous and versatile hitters. Where they best fit in the lineup might be a legitimate question, but whether to play them regularly shouldn’t be.

The minors
Justin Maxwell was crushing the baseball in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and might have hit his way onto the big league roster if not for a season-ending injury. With Maxwell on the DL, Jordan Parraz as been the top corner outfielder in Triple-A, and Tampa left fielder Ziolo Almonte has been the best corner outfielder in the system. Almonte has been hitting for average and power while stealing bases, and he has to be considered a promotion candidate in the second half. Ray Kruml has emerged as a terrific leadoff man in Trenton, while Ramon Flores has lived up to his reputation for outstanding plate discipline for a teenager in Charleston.

One question
Is Gardner about to win his first Gold Glove?
Gardner’s always had great speed, and last year he seemed to slowly make people realize just how well that speed plays in the outfield. This year, he’s also been effective throwing the ball. His four outfield assists aren’t near the AL leaders, but runners seem to be respecting his arm a little bit more this season and not taking as many chances. I’m guessing manager have noticed.

The future
Gardner is heading for his first year of arbitration, so he’s still relatively cheap for next season. Swisher has a $10.25-million club option for next year, and the Yankees have to decide whether to exercise it. Given the money that Carl Crawford and Jayson Werth got this winter, they might not think twice about getting Swisher at that price.

    Is Gardner about to win his first Gold Glove?
    ————————-

    Alex Gordon Of the Royals has 13 OF assists-might challenge for a GG..

  2. BoJo July 13th, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    How is that kid Krum doing? I was really impressed with his defense in ST.

    Kruml is also an exciting prospect, and I guess you could add Golson to available Corners…

  3. Jerkface July 13th, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    Who measures gold gloves on assists?

    Gardner had 15 last year and lost to Crawford, Gutz, and Ichiro. None had even half as much.

  4. tyanksfan36 July 13th, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    That picture of Zoilo looks absolutely nothing like Zoilo does in person. I’m proud to be able to watch him play all the time. He really is that good.

  5. BoJo July 13th, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    A Cody Ranson appearance! Wow…This game is like Old Timers Day

  6. Yankee Trader July 13th, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    GF-

    I could see a lesser deal, like Reed Johnson of the Cubs traded for, and Jones dropped. Mayne Kerry Wood “would” accept a deal to return to the Yankees with the option to return to his hometown for 2012.

  7. Bronx Jeers July 13th, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    You gotta hope Jones turns it around in the 2nd half.

    I mean he’s got to show something if he expects another sucker GM to give him job next season.

    The last few years (IIRC), Jones has been significantly worse in 2nd half.

  9. Yankee Trader July 13th, 2011 at 10:19 pm

    Jerkface-

    Gardner should have won the GG and so should Markakis whose been shut out all these years by veterans like Ichiro.

  10. blake July 13th, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    Warren looked pretty darn good……he could help in the pen.

    Regarding the outfield….I think “need” is a relative term….sure they don’t need an outfielder but the question should be would adding one make the team better and how much if so…..

  11. Jerkface July 13th, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    Gardner should have won the GG and so should Markakis whose been shut out all these years by veterans like Ichiro.

    Gardner should have won the GG but not simply because he had a lot of assists. Alfonso Soriano can get a lot of assists. Gardner should win because he is awesome at everything related to fielded. Alex Gordon can’t boast that :)

  12. Jim July 13th, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    Gardner has been noticeably awesome this year in LF. His arm strength and accuracy has improved and I’ve noticed that the word around the league seem to be do not test his arm. When you earn that rep you are entering elite status.

  13. LGY July 13th, 2011 at 10:22 pm

    Exactly “Honey! I traded our kids for an autographed Derek Jeter bat!”

    ——-

    If I have a right handed kid I’m gonna trade him for LOOGY kid.

    Hershiser, Moyer, Schilling, Mulder and Sutcliffe currently doing an hour special on ESPN2 on pitching.

    so looks like what your going to get from Gardner at years end is almost like

    Blake-

    When a certain banned Mets OF’er is traded to the Giants, would this replacement to Andruw Jones work for the Yankees?

    Reminiscing about the old days before pitch counts, innings limits, and over-protectiveness?

  18. blake July 13th, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    Trader,

    He’s better than Jones….I think they should make a run at that other certain Mets OFer though

  19. Yankee Trader July 13th, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    If I have a right handed kid I’m gonna trade him for LOOGY kid.
    —————————

    No need to trade him. Have Phil Niekro teach him the knuckleball!!

  20. Yankee Trader July 13th, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    Pat-

    Thanks for the alert on ESPN. Moyer kept logs[stacks of] on hitters. Too bad Gary Maddux not on the show, whose memory of hitters was remarkable without notes and video.

  21. LGY July 13th, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    I think raising a LOOGY is the smart way to go.

    If he is event decent against LHB he is guaranteed to be grossly overpaid by the NYY.

    My kid is gonna be dropping sliders on his LH stuffed animals from the time he can walk.

  22. Yankee Trader July 13th, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    LGY-

    Raise him to be a knuckleball pitcher-can be set for life and pitch into his 40′s, but if LOOGY is your bag….oh well!!

  23. LGY July 13th, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    But I don’t know how to throw a knuckleball!

  24. BoJo July 13th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    LOOGY’s will break your heart…just ask Brian Cashman.

  25. BoJo July 13th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    ****LOOGYs***

    For months, so many here pontificated that no good pitchers were or would be available; and others like me said, “how do you know?” Now it turns out that Ubaldo Jimenez might be available for the right price. And that’s just one that made the press. And there may be others.

    We need a number two if we expect to go deep in the post-season. Colon is a crap shoot when it comes to potential age and injury issues.

    My idea on plausible inexpensive deals for the Yankees before the deadline. Feel free to trash:

    Trade for Reed Johnson and Kerry Wood from the Cubs to add to bullpen and enable the release of Jones.

    Trade for Omar Infante of the Marlins and send Pena back to whereever.

    Free Jesus and let Cervelli ride back with Pena.

    Low cost improvements from teams out of race. All are impending FA’s and none have NTC’s.

    J.C. Romero may bolt Nationals to sign with Yankees

    According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, Romero’s “intention” is to opt of his contract with the Nationals on July 15 if he is not promoted to the major leagues. The 35-year-old would then sign a minor league deal with the Yankees and report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilke-Barre with the hope of donning pinstripes for the stretch run and possibly the playoffs.

  38. Yankee Trader July 13th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    From MLBTR’s-

    Felix Hernandez wants to stay in Seattle well beyond the end of his contract in 2014, the reigning Cy Young winner told Manuel Lira at the Venezuelan paper Líder en Deportes. “Hopefully Seattle locks me up further,” Hernandez said. “I want to sign for more. At least five years more.” As for any chance of being traded to New York or elsewhere, Hernandez dismissed the notion as “just rumors.”

    Oh well!

  39. Jerkface July 13th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    ===================

    Who do you bump from the rotation for this new #2? The fact is that right now it looks like the Yanks have 2, or maybe 3, #2 pitchers. And this doesn’t include Hughes, who could be peaking by the time the postseason rolls around. There isn’t any need nor any space for any additional pitching. The Yanks could use another right-handed bat/ outfielder for the bench,but on pitching the Yanks look set. Although I expect Cashman to go out and get another LOOGY if Marte can’t go.

    Colon has #2 numbers. He was always a #1-#2 in his career, even when he hurt his way out of baseball he was above average those years for the little he pitched.

    Garcia has a 3 ERA but I wouldnt trust him in the playoffs, maybe as the 4th guy.

    The Yankees have no dependable number two to match up against their counterpart in the post season. Colon is not a bet I would make to be healthy and productive in October although he could be. “If I am Cashman I don’t stake the season on could be.”

  70. Rich in NJ July 13th, 2011 at 11:26 pm

    I’m happy with CC/Colon.

  71. Giuseppe Franco July 13th, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    It’s not going to happen. A bullpen arm or two is much more likely. Perhaps some depth on the bench as well.

    You’re not going to see them deal for a big name starting pitcher.

    It would be a tough match up for them to face guys like Halladay and Lee anyways because those guys own them. It doesn’t really matter if they had David Cone in his Yankee heyday pitching in Game 2.

  72. Yankee Trader July 13th, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    I’m also happy with CC and a healthy Colon. lol

  73. ron July 13th, 2011 at 11:29 pm

    If colon gets bombed his next start,there is going to be a lot of very nervous yankee people & a number 2 pitcher is also very much up in the air.

  74. Ghostwriter July 13th, 2011 at 11:29 pm

    BTW, I might be alone on this, but I wouldn’t trade Betances straight up for Gio or Ubaldo, unless I thought that there is something seriously wrong with Betances. There just isn’t enough of a track record on either Gonzalez or Jimenez for to make either of them meaningfully less risky than Betances. Cashman has tried this gambit in the past, scooping up young pitchers coming off good years, and it rarely ever works (e.g., Weaver, Vazquez, Wright, Pavano, etc.) I would rather have the additional years with Betances, even if I have to wait another year for him to be ready. At least with Betances, we know precisely how he was developed, and what his potential injury issues might be.

  75. Giuseppe Franco July 13th, 2011 at 11:31 pm

    Don’t confuse “Yankee people” with Yankee fans. Most of the fans don’t have any perspective.

    ————–

    Good point. Colon’s next couple of starts will probably go a long way in determining Cashman’s sense of urgency about acquiring another pitcher.

  77. luis July 13th, 2011 at 11:32 pm

    Hi Ghost,

    As you say QFT

  78. Rich in NJ July 13th, 2011 at 11:32 pm

    “If colon gets bombed his next start,there is going to be a lot of very nervous yankee people & a number 2 pitcher is also very much up in the air.”

    OTOH, if Hughes regains his curve and his FB command and late life return, the Yankees are golden.

    It’s easy to be negative, but I don’t see the point.

  79. Betsy July 13th, 2011 at 11:32 pm

    Phil’s changes probably are going to take awhile to incorporate – he even said that he may not throw the new /old curve next out. I wonder what mechanical differences he’s only noticed now between his old delivery and his current one……..

  80. Betsy July 13th, 2011 at 11:33 pm

    First Phil has to get his FB back – no swings and misses on it? He needs that life that it used to have – without that, even a good curve won’t help him much

  81. Bronx Jeers July 13th, 2011 at 11:34 pm

    Halladay/Lee ? CC/ Colon-AJ on their very best day. CC would probably to be at his very best as well.

    Honestly I’m not sure any 2 pitchers matches up against Doc & Lee if they’re close to at their best.

  82. Ghostwriter July 13th, 2011 at 11:35 pm

    Hey there, Luis! I hope all is well for you…

  83. Yankee Trader July 13th, 2011 at 11:36 pm

    Phil needs a good outing against the Blue Jays, a team that owned him last year to the tune of a 7+ ERA.

    Goodnight all. I wonder who is calling Cashman right now?

  84. Rich in NJ July 13th, 2011 at 11:37 pm

    I hope Cash isn’t calling anyone.

    Halladay/Lee ? CC/ Colon-AJ on their very best day. CC would probably to be at his very best as well.

    Honestly I’m not sure any 2 pitchers matches up against Doc & Lee if they’re close to at their best.
    ————————-

    Wait ‘em out, wear them down, and win the game late. Although I think you might be right about that. Still, between them, Halladay and Lee have 0 WS rings…

    —————

    Me too. All I want is a good clutch bat for the bench (preferably an outfielder). This team’s biggest weakness remains the streakiness of the offense. Cashman and Girardi need to find a way to smooth out those peaks and valleys in run production. As always, runs will be at a premium in the postseason, and the Yanks can’t afford to waste too many chances…

  88. luis July 13th, 2011 at 11:42 pm

    Ghost,

    I’m great getting ready for the sack. I think the prize for any really good pitcher is going to be exhorbitant therefore not worth it. The best up grade for the rotation is hughes regaining his 2007 form. I agree on the strategy of wearing them out, but still they very good comand pitchers so it may not matter anyway

  89. luis July 13th, 2011 at 11:43 pm

    Good night everyone, hopefully tomorrow i’ll be able to spend some more time in the blog

  90. Bronx Jeers July 13th, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    And the there’s Hamels in game 3 who can just as easily pitch game 1 or 2 with the season he’s having.

    Whoever faces them is going to have their work cut out for them.

  91. Rich in NJ July 13th, 2011 at 11:49 pm

  95. Rich in NJ July 13th, 2011 at 11:58 pm

    I just turned on WFAN for one minute and I have to hear Stupid Steve Somers say that Jeter “put himself above the game” by not going to the AS game.

    As anyone who reads my posts knows, I am hardly a Jeter apologist, but that assertion by Somers is so freakin’ irresponsible and patently false that he deserves to be fired.

    I’d rather listen to someone scratching a painted wall with their fingernails than listent to most of the hosts on that pitiful excuse for a sports talk radio station.

  96. Rich in NJ July 13th, 2011 at 11:58 pm

  98. Jerkface July 14th, 2011 at 12:02 am

    I’m surprised the yankees managed to beat hamels/cliff lee the first time. Or the maddux/glavine/smoltz braves . Not sure there is a #2 out there anyone would feel comfortable lining up against hamels/cliff lee on paper.

  99. Rich in NJ July 14th, 2011 at 12:58 am

    J. C. Romero?

  101. West Coast Yankee Fan July 14th, 2011 at 2:24 am

    I was late for dinner earlier; here is a more complete list of possible post-season opponents that have tough 1-2 starters. If Colon and Garcia don’t last; and even if they do, our odds of going deep in the post-season would increase greatly if Cashman can pull some magic out of his hat and obtain a strong starter to follow Sabathia.

    Anibal Sanchez appeals to me. I’d also do Montero, Noesi (or Nova) and Warren for Ubaldo Jimenez.

    Roy Halladay/Cliff Lee
    Tim Lincecum/Matt Cain
    Jered Weaver/Dan Haren
    Lester/Beckett
    Price/Shields
    Hudson/Jurrjens
    Greinke/Marcum

  102. Jerkface July 14th, 2011 at 3:20 am

    I’m not scared of Greinke/Marcum, Hudson/Jurjjens, Price/Shields, or Weaver/Haren And Lester/Beckett can get got by our boys, they’ve been got before and will be again. I think it would be very difficult to get anything on the quality of Cliff Lee.

    The Yankees will likely to have to deal with it, since I think the kind of pitchers available will be like Hiroki Kuroda (who I would welcome with open arms).

    It would have to be magic, but Cashman has done crazier things before.

  103. Jerkface July 14th, 2011 at 3:24 am

    I dunno if this was posted here but apparently K-rod’s agent forgot to submit his no-trade list, hence why he got fired and Boras took over. Mets traded him before Boras could thoroughly scrutinize the contract to find a loophole. Funny.

  104. West Coast Yankee Fan July 14th, 2011 at 3:33 am

    It’s not a matter of being scared of a pitcher. We have the hitting to beat anyone on any given day. It’s a matter of who we are throwing against them that gives us the best chance of holding them to as few runs as possible. Clearly a Sanchez, Jimenez or Kuroda (who I have strongly advocated for before) would be an upgrade at least on paper over anyone we have right now.

  105. AldotheApache July 14th, 2011 at 6:10 am

    … because the games are played on paper, of course.

  106. joeman July 14th, 2011 at 6:18 am

  107. Rich in NJ July 14th, 2011 at 6:49 am

    I hope true, but it’s from George King, so who knows?

    “Finally, what trade deadline deal will Cashman make because the Yankees always do something. With other teams understanding Dellin Betances, Manuel Banuelos, Austin Romine and Jesus Montero are off-limits and the talent pool shallow, the Yankees likely won’t be able to swing a deal for a big-name player.”

    (I also hope I’m wrong about Soriano and he becomes a big contributor this season, which is is the primary subject of the linked article.)

    Sabathia vs Romero[lefty+day game]
    Hughes vs Villanueva[day game] Hughes worst ERA against Toronto last year>7.

    Any thoughts on these matchups?

    “Who measures it on actual fielding? The award has long been a farce.”

    Eh somewhat…..but you don’t see terrible fielders winning it……only sometimes guys win it that the defensive metrics don’t agree with…..and the accuracy of those are highly debatable. They get them wrong sometimes……but they get them right a lot too.

  125. austinmac July 14th, 2011 at 8:12 am

    Girardi would have made good use of your bunting abilities, and that could have driven more on the board crazy. It’s a win- win.

  130. GreenBeret7 July 14th, 2011 at 8:14 am

    These next 8 games on turf is going to be a little rough because Jeter will be out on at least two of them which puts Pena in two of them.

  132. MaineYankee July 14th, 2011 at 8:17 am

    Even though I was disappointed that Jeter didn’t go to the ASG I think it gave the game more publicity than if he went.

    His not going and not giving a reason is kind of out of character for him.

    Mell-

    Morrow has pitched better lately. Had probably the best pitched game in the majors a one hitter with?17 punchouts last year.

    Villanueva has been their best pitcher in terms of BA against. However it’s a day game.

    Which game are you concerned about. Garcia’s? Hughes?

  138. GreenBeret7 July 14th, 2011 at 8:21 am

    Jeers, I’m not sre if this would stand on appeal, but, quite likely it would be tossed out. You’ve got a guy that was thrown off of a police force and he admits to holding onto something for 9 years because he doesn’t trust the guy? He trusts him enough to take his money for years. That smells like a plan to commit extortion to me.

  143. Yankee Trader July 14th, 2011 at 8:26 am

    I posted this last night. King Felix is now officially banned. I guess WINNING is not in his vocabulary!

    From MLBTR’s:

    Felix Hernandez wants to stay in Seattle well beyond the end of his contract in 2014, the reigning Cy Young winner told Manuel Lira at the Venezuelan paper Líder en Deportes. “Hopefully Seattle locks me up further,” Hernandez said. “I want to sign for more. At least five years more.” As for any chance of being traded to New York or elsewhere, Hernandez dismissed the notion as “just rumors.”

  144. Mell July 14th, 2011 at 8:27 am

    Which game are you concerned about. Garcia’s? Hughes?

    ==============================

    None in particular. Sweeping 4 on the road is tough and Toronto has played them reasonably well over the last couple years (teams have split their last 26 games). I think the Jays will finagle at least one out the Yankees this weekend.

    Yea agreed…..Pena serves no useful purpose if he can’t catch the ball and he really hasn’t done that since he’s been up this time…..I know.he has a history of being a good defender but when you are a back up glove man that can’t hit…..you have to catch the ball when called upon. Get Laird up and send Pena back to AAA.

    Anyone get a chance to watch that ESPN special on pitching last night ?

    IMO it was a fantastic insight into the art and science of pitching.

    It was hosted by Orel Hirschisher, and featured Moyer,Mulder, Schilling, and Sutcliffe.

    Each guy showed the grip they used to throw their signature pitch.

    For example, Sutcliffe showed his slider grip.

    The overall discussion of the strategy used while pitching was great.

    A real window into that world. A rare treat.

    A Waist is a Terrible Thing to Mind

  176. GreenBeret7 July 14th, 2011 at 9:02 am

    MTU, did Moyer show his junkball grip?

  177. MaineYankee July 14th, 2011 at 9:03 am

    MTU

    That’s what I like when Cone or Leiter are doing the games.

    Cone gives insight into the mind set of a pitcher.

    Was Schilling wearing his bloody sock? :lol:

  178. 86w183 July 14th, 2011 at 9:04 am

    Jeter might get one day off in Toronto but no ways it’s two

    And it better not be Sunday when I have great seats!

  179. GreenBeret7 July 14th, 2011 at 9:06 am

    Maine, did you see Leiter the day he demonstrated his sockball on camera?

  180. MTU July 14th, 2011 at 9:07 am

    GB-

    CU grip.

    And he has a very effective one. Said he learned it in college and refined it in the majors.

    Very precise about the way it needed to be thrown and why.

    As were all the other guys presentations.

    Moyer was able to throw it to either side of the plate, and also said that the CU is the 2nd best pitch in baseball.

    More guys should learn it.

    P.S. I know you were kidding but it was a good chance to try to educate folks.

    ;)

  181. pat July 14th, 2011 at 9:08 am

    MTU

    I saw it.

    Them talking about how much technology has changed their prep in such a short amount of time speaks as much to the “year of the pitcher” likely as much as a PED policy now being in place.

  182. MTU July 14th, 2011 at 9:09 am

    Maine-

    No. Just his big ego and yapper.

    All kidding aside. He did actually have some very interesting things to say about pitching.

    His level of preparation and knowledge was quite impressive.

    Hate the Man not his knowledge is my motto.

    :)

  183. GreenBeret7 July 14th, 2011 at 9:10 am

    Educate folks? I know that I can’t spell, but, I’m highly edumacated.

  184. MTU July 14th, 2011 at 9:10 am

    Pat-

    I thought it was wonderful.

    The stories, insight, etc.

    Anyone missing it really lost out IMO.

  185. MTU July 14th, 2011 at 9:13 am

    GB-

    Yeah. That was always obvious. You might be a redneck but you ain’t no hayseed.

    :)

    Maine, did you see Leiter the day he demonstrated his sockball on camera?

    ——————————————————————————————

    Yes.

    It really adds to the game when they do stuff like that.

    I know some don’t like when Singleton talks about his playing days but I enjoy it.

    It helps me remember things from back then I either didn’t know or forgot.

    The forgot part is getting longer all the time. :lol:
