  • Yankees' Justin Lange: Velocity up this year

    Lange has shown increased velocity this season, according to Geoff Pontes of Baseball America, and has a 3.70 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 24.1 innings through six starts for Single-A Tampa. The 6-foot-4 righty was traded from the Padres to the Yankees in March of 2022 in exchange for Luke Voit, but it wasn't until this spring that Lange showed enough promise to potentially make the Padres regret that swap. Per Pontes, Lange has been sitting in the mid-90s and touching 98 mph with his fastball while mixing in a high-80s cutter, changeup and a low-80s sweeper.

  • Yankees' Justin Lange: Moves to New York

    Lange was sent from the Padres to the Yankees on Friday in exchange for Luke Voit, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Lange's 6.95 ERA in 22 innings at the rookie-ball level last season is far from inspiring. The Padres liked him enough to take him 34th overall in the 2020 Draft however, and that poor ERA did at least come with an 28.4 percent strikeout rate. He'll have to cut his 14.7 percent walk rate significantly if he's to have a big-league career, but he still has several seasons to figure that out.
