Every other week, we bring you exclusive interviews with Yankees players, coaches, alumni or front office executives. Plus, Yankees Magazine’s editors take you inside their feature stories and discuss what’s happening around the stadium.
The kids have arrived, and this week, we have Everson Pereira chatting with Yankees Magazine deputy editor Jon Schwartz. The Venezuelan outfielder discusses his last days in the minors, his first days in The Show, and what he has learned thus far. He also talks about the role family played in his ascent, and his hopes for the future. Then, Jon is joined by Yankees Magazine executive editor Nathan Maciborski to discuss Old-Timers’ Day and Nate’s feature on likely AL Cy Young Award winner Gerrit Cole, who graces the cover of the September 2023 issue of Yankees Magazine.
Episode 11: Jake Bauers
If you’re surprised to see Jake Bauers appearing on the New York Yankees Official Podcast, don’t worry — Bauers is, too. But since coming up from Triple-A earlier this year, the former top prospect has been mashing for the Yankees.
Episode 10: Clarke Schmidt
When the Yankees’ starting staff was decimated by injuries at the outset of the season, Clarke Schmidt got the chance to establish himself as a big-league starter. But the first couple months couldn’t have gone much worse for the right-hander.
Episode 9: Carlos Rodón
We’ve been waiting to release this one for a while; as excited as all of us are to have Carlos Rodón on the mound for the Yankees, we also are thrilled to get to post this exclusive interview with the stud southpaw. On his New York Yankees Official Podcast debut, Rodón talks with Yankees Magazine deputy editor Jon Schwartz about mustaches, the free agent process, and his awesome pitching arsenal. Afterward, Jon and Yankees Magazine editor in chief Alfred Santasiere III discuss Al’s two features in the July issue: a piece about Rodón and another about Harrison Bader.
Episode 8: Isiah Kiner-Falefa
Isiah Kiner-Falefa wants to be the best bench player possible. That’s hardly faint praise.
Episode 7: Tommy Kahnle
We’ve got Tommy Kahnle in the podcast studio this week, and energy is high. We repeat: Energy is high. The reliever chats about his hobbies, the joy he takes from fooling hitters with his changeup, and his divorce from a certain Philadelphia football team. But mostly, he discusses the enthusiasm he brings to the clubhouse, and why he believes it helps make everyone around him better.
Epsiode 6: Wandy Peralta
Last year, Wandy Peralta became the first Yankee in history to pitch in all five games of a Division Series.
Episode 5: Kyle Higashioka
Yankees catcher Kyle Higashioka insists that he has a killer instinct, but when he stopped by our podcast studio, he showed the same chill, cool, uber-California style that Yankees fans and teammates have gotten to know for years. The longest-tenured member of the organization, Higashioka chats with Yankees Magazine deputy editor Jon Schwartz about the team’s pitching staff, the very different joys of catching a no-hitter and hitting three homers in a game, and so much more. Then, Al Santasiere and Nate Maciborski join to discuss the team’s scorching run over the past few weeks, including some walk-off heroics from May cover star Anthony Volpe. https://www.mlb.com/yankees/news/kyle-higashioka-talks-about-yankees-history?t=yankees-magazine
Episode 4: Nick Swisher
Hope you’re ready for some energy, because we’ve got Nick Swisher in the podcast studio this week.
Episode 3: Jose Trevino
When Jose Trevino arrived in Tampa last April, the move was met with almost zero fanfare. A year later, he’s coming off an All-Star season that saw him mash countless huge hits and earn the American League’s Platinum Glove. He sat down with <Yankees Magazine> deputy editor Jon Schwartz to discuss all that he experienced in the past year, the crazy sensation of getting to catch Gerrit Cole and the charity work that fuels him. Plus, the <Yankees Magazine> editors discuss the season’s first month, with a special focus on the May cover star, Anthony Volpe.
Episode 2: Kevin Reese
We’re back with another episode of the New York Yankees Official Podcast. This week, Yankees vice president of player development Kevin Reese stops by to give his view of the entire organization from the top down.
Episode 1: Gerrit Cole
It’s the debut episode of the NEW YORK YANKEES OFFICIAL PODCAST, and we’re joined by the Yankees’ Opening Day starter, Gerrit Cole. The ace chats with Yankees Magazine deputy editor Jon Schwartz about his preparation, the fun he finds on the baseball field, and his children’s favorite thing about the sport. Sure, they also discuss the upcoming season a bit, too. And in our second segment, Yankees Magazine editors Alfred Santasiere III and Nathan Maciborski join to discuss Jon’s feature about Cole that appears in the 2023 New York Yankees Official Yearbook and the April issue of Yankees Magazine.
