It has been a month since the New York Yankees and the rest of Major League Baseball were supposed to begin the new season. Despite the shutdown and no baseball, the Bombers have been staying active to stay prepared for a possible season.

Despite not being the fastest guy on the team and having zero career stolen bases, Luke Voit is remaining fit. If it’s not benching 135lbs. with each hand, Voit is also doing something to better himself.

Now, this is someone you don’t want to see in the middle of a brawl on the field. Aroldis Chapman doesn’t throw 100mph+ without putting in the work.

Definitely a bummer that we haven’t seen Gerrit Cole pitch in pinstripes yet, but he’s remaining active and is still throwing to keep his arm healthy.

Mike Ford has begun something new during this time off. Here he is doing yoga while he works out on LBI as well. Hey, if yoga helps Mike Ford to hit pinch-hit walk-off home runs, I’m all for it.

Absolutely no remorse here for his wife. Kyle Higashioka is working on his swing while his wife feeds the pitching machine. Higgy’s swing is looking good, and having him as the backup catcher for the Yankees is big.

Gary Sanchez gets every New York Yankees fan hyped up with this video. El Kraken is down in the Dominican Republic and is staying active with baseball activities.
