Video: Yankees slump reaches epic proportions

The New York Yankees offensive woes continue to mount. When the club gets quality pitching, they score even less, and the results have dropped the Yankees into last place in the American League East.

Over the last 15 games (including Wednesday's 3-2 loss) the club has scored just 37 runs. The Yanks scored 35 runs in their first five games of the season. The worst part about the slump is that there always seems to be one player getting hits, but whoever that is, he is the only one doing so. Then, the following day he passes the torch. The Yanks need a group of hitters to get hot in order to squelch the slump.

Here is some video displaying the metrics within the offensive skid (prior to Wednesday's 3-2 loss) that has been the main culprit to an 8-12 start to the season. The Yankees need to turn it around fast, or else the next five months could be quite miserable.

Yankees hit road after winning series against Rays

The New York Yankees won their final series of the homestand despite a rough Sunday outing from Michael Pineda. Jacoby Ellsbury was the hero Friday and Brett Gardner’s walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth Saturday aided Masahiro Tanaka’s seven-inning, two-run effort.

The Yankees (7-10) open a three-game series versus the Texas Rangers (10-9) Monday night as they begin part a nine-game road trip. The Yankees will miss Cole Hamels on his regularly scheduled day due to a groin strain. The Yankees will still face two left-handed starters at the front and backend of the series. The Yankees will counter with Nathan Eovaldi on Monday, Luis Severino on Tuesday and CC Sabathia in Wednesday's finale.

Yankees hit road, get warm in...Toronto?

The New York Yankees were not treated nicely by the schedule makers to begin the season. They’ve had to play in some miserable conditions and faced a couple of tough competitors each with legitimate playoff aspirations. The only thing that changes as the Yankees meet the Toronto Blue Jays for three games beginning Tuesday is the weather — or rather the implications of weather — which does not pose a factor under the Rogers Centre roof.
