NFT: Yanks talk 6/11 (pre double header)

superspynyg : 6/11/2019 8:14 am
This is not the game thread for either game.

Stanton to start rehab games at single a today. Will serve as DH. Plan is for him to be back by Monday. Fingers crossed.

Judge might start rehab games this weekend. Could be back next weekend if all goes well.

This is both great news. We need our top two power hitters back soon.

Tauchman is likely to come up as the 26th man today for the double hitter.

When Judge and Stanton come back.. What happens to Frazier?
Outfielders will be Judge Stanton, Hicks, Gardner. Do you keep five?

I think that Morales will be released. The infielders are Didi, Voit, DJ, Torres an Urshella( plus Kraken and backup C) Who is backup 1B then?
So it comes down to back up 1b or Frazier. Can DJ play 1b?

Thoughts?
DJ can play 1B.

That doesn’t solve the overcrowded outfield situation.
I think..

Morales gets released and Frazier sent down
I think they'll go back to the original plan  
mfsd : 6/11/2019 8:22 am : link
DJ becomes back-up 1B. Not ideal...but if we're carrying only 12 position players, the bench is thin:

C: El Gary, Romine

IF: Voit, Torres, Didi, Urshela, DJ

OF: Judge, Hicks, Stanton, Gardy

That's 11...so they either keep Frazier for his bat, or keep Morales bc they wan't another lefty bat/backup 1B.

I vote Frazier...but they may want him to play every day in AAA until needed again
I still think Frazier goes down  
Stu11 : 6/11/2019 8:23 am : link
Maybin is just better suited for that 4th-5th OF role. Its not always about the most talent, but who fits the roles better. His tools- good D, speed/baserunning are much more useful in a reserve role, especially for a team that doesn't pinch hit much when everyone is healthy.
forgot about Maybin  
mfsd : 6/11/2019 8:24 am : link
he's better suited to a backup OF/pinch runner role than Frazier
If DJ is a problem at  
section125 : 6/11/2019 8:30 am : link
1B, why does he sub in for Voit late in the game? I think Boone and Cash are quite happy with DJ at first and it allows him to rotate around the IF to keep his bat in the lineup.

Yes, I think they keep Maybin, cut Morales and send Frazier down to work on OF defense and keep his bat hot. (This is unfortunate as his bat is quite productive and a power bat.) The only alternative is cutting Maybin, which is not out of the question,

the next injury Fat Man is correct. Frazier will go to AAA and Morales will be DFA'd
There  
nygnyy274 : 6/11/2019 9:15 am : link
Will be another injury. Every time a player comes back another goes on the IL. Didi back Friday German goes to the IL Sunday.

This is the most likely answer- though we are beginning to get to the point where the Yanks begin looking at trades. Remember that the Yanks have done well identifying in-season trades for bench pieces.

I don't see where they need a bench piece(if that is what you meant). I do see where they could use starting pitcher help. I know they are probably banking on Sevy, Monty and German making it back, but how effective will Montgomery be? Will Sevy really be back? And even if German gets healthy, when do his innings catch up?

Has there been anything on Betances MRI? I have a feeling this time it may lead to surgery.
I think Frazier is the most likely candidate to be traded right now  
robbieballs2003 : 6/11/2019 9:56 am : link
for a SP. Just depends on who is available.

I don't think so. Gardner is likely in his last season and putting Stanton in the field regularly increases his already high risk of injury (though DHing him didn't prevent the arm injury).

While Frazier still has work to do defensively, he has the athletics to be able to eventually get the job done in LF- where his speed will help with balls hit into the gap. Stanton is better served as DH, IMO.

Same and I think that’s why they send him down to “hide” him so to speak. He’s flashed his bat plenty, no need to keep showing his defensive woes. Keep his value as high as possible.

Agreed rich. I think Cash is looking at Frazier as Gardy's replacement in 2020.
While Frazier is likely the best chip they have at this point, it would have to be a hell of a pitcher for Frazier to be included in a deal.
Florial is back, healthy and hitting...  
Dunedin81 : 6/11/2019 10:24 am : link
he's a potential trade chip. Deivi Garcia has built value this year, he's another one. Though they've dealt with some injuries, on the whole the farm is doing pretty well this year.

I think that Estrada has also re-established himself as a serious middle INF prospect- probably back to where he was pre-shooting. While he will not headline a trade- he is certainly likely to be a 2nd or 3rd piece, depending on the quality of the player acquired.
Definitely...  
Dunedin81 : 6/11/2019 10:32 am : link
someone watched that cup of coffee and saw a potential starting 2B or SS.
I wouldn't worry to much  
Jeever : 6/11/2019 10:35 am : link
At the rate we're going someone else will end up on the IL before too long.
Morales is most likely the next guy gone...  
BC Eagles94 : 6/11/2019 11:57 am : link
Once either Stanton or Judge returns. Morales simply doesn't have it anymore. Yes, we would have to lose him (DFA), but what value does he add? He can't run. He plays only 1B where DJ will need at-bats as the back-up with Did back. And his one strong point (hitting), he appears to have finally lost now at 36. So it just makes sense to keep Frazier's bat around over Morales'.

And the once the other returns of Judge/Stanton, Frazier will be sent to minors. He has options and obviously needs some work in the field. Maybin has been too good a player for us to give him up for nothing (DFA) for Frazier who has options. Maybin is a good fielder and can play all over the OF, he is a great base runner, and has surprisingly hit great for us.

Dune are you saying Florial is more likely to be traded than Frasier?

I don't even try to guess where they're at. Florial is a legit CF, and with Gardner (presumably) riding off into the sunset and Hicks not known for his durability he's really the only one at the upper levels.
At Tampa anyway...  
Dunedin81 : 6/11/2019 2:54 pm : link
should be at the upper levels (Trenton) by the ASB.
I'd like to think they won't trade Florial just yet  
bigbluehoya : 6/11/2019 3:19 pm : link
feels like his value took a real hit with the last 2 years of injuries. He has a perfectly legitimate chance to put himself in the top ~25 if he remains healthy for the rest of the season.

Personally I hope they don't trade him at all. I think he's absolutely the goods.
We'll see if they do anything  
arniefez : 6/12/2019 3:18 pm : link
or if they can't bear to trade their prospects. I think Hal is at the top of his budget so who knows what they're thinking. I know what I'm thinking. This team is winning nothing in the playoffs in the foreseeable future with these starting pitchers. They'll win plenty of regular season games so there's that.
