The main MLB portal at Yahoo Sports is mainly compromised of a feed consisting of stories from national outlets, newspapers, and NBC-affiliated local sites. Incredibly, it’s about to get even less interesting.

On Tuesday, Yahoo MLB writers Tim Brown and Mike Oz announced they’d no longer be with the company.

The lone remaining “MLB expert” at Yahoo is Hannah Keyser.

Yahoo has been slashing the staff at its sports sites over the last few years. It attempted to launch a subscription-based Mets app in 2019, but that plan never got off the ground and all the writers were let go. Long-time editor Kevin Kaduk was laid off around the same time. A year ago, the site’s entire UK editorial team was let go.

It’s disappointing to see Yahoo’s MLB coverage continue to dwindle. Since Jeff Passan left for ESPN more than two years ago, it seems like there hasn’t been much desire from Yahoo to build its MLB coverage back up. Yahoo’s focus has seemingly been directed towards cultivating its relationship with the NFL (shocker) and its sports betting ventures, and while that’s all well and good, talented individuals are losing their jobs. Wherever Brown and Oz land, it’ll be Yahoo’s loss and their new employers’ gain.
