Top Yankees News

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: On bench, could lose everyday role

    LeMahieu is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    The veteran infielder has a .472 OPS through 39 games this season and is hitting .154 with one extra-base hit in 39 at-bats during July. According to Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News, manager Aaron Boone wouldn't commit to LeMahieu being back in the lineup in Monday's series finale, perhaps signaling that the 36-year-old's time as an everyday player could be nearing its end.

  • Yankees' Yoendrys Gomez: Rejoins big club

    The Yankees recalled Gomez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

    The right-hander has had a couple brief stints with the Yankees this season and will rejoin the big-league roster ahead of Sunday's series finale versus the Rays. Gomez has appeared in three games and given up five earned runs with a 9:6 K:BB over 7.2 innings.

  • Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Decision on return looming

    The Yankees will likely decide on a return date for Stanton (hamstring) by the end of next week, per MLB.com.

    Stanton ran the bases on the field Friday in his most recent step toward recovering from a strained left hamstring. Manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that the slugger "is in a pretty good spot" in terms of his progress and indicated that a return is a matter of building stamina. There hasn't been a decision made yet about whether Stanton will go on a rehab assignment -- if he foregoes that route, he could be back in the Yankees lineup at some point during their series in Boston that begins Friday.

  • Yankees' Cody Morris: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Morris was assigned outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday.

    Morris was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Sunday but will remain with the organization's Triple-A squad after he cleared waivers. The right-hander has produced an uninspiring 4.25 ERA and 1.44 WHIP with 42 strikeouts over 36 innings in 24 appearances, including two starts, with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season.

  • Yankees' Josh Maciejewski: Optioned to Triple-A

    Maciejewski was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Saturday's 9-1 loss to the Rays.

    Maciejewski was on the mound for the final three innings of Saturday's defeat, surrendering three hits, including a two-run homer by Randy Arozarena in the top of the seventh. After having his contract selected by the Yankees on June 30, the reliever appeared in three total contests, giving up two runs over six frames.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Allows three homers in loss

    Cortes (4-9) took the loss against the Rays on Saturday, allowing six runs on eight hits and two walks with one strikeout over 4.1 innings.

    Cortes entered Saturday with a 1.81 ERA in 10 home starts but surrendered a season-high six earned runs, including three homers across the fourth and fifth innings. The Rays have the southpaw's number this season, as he generated only five swinging strikes on 92 pitches and fell to 0-3 against them in four chances. On the year, he owns a 3.99 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 111:24 K:BB across 119.2 innings and lines up for a road matchup with the Red Sox next week.

  • Yankees' JT Brubaker: Shut down for several weeks

    Brubaker (oblique/elbow) will remain shut down from throwing for 3-to-4 weeks, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    The Yankees pulled Brubaker off his rehab assignment Sunday after he suffered an oblique strain during his latest minor-league start, and the team confirmed Saturday that it will likely be nearly a month before he restarts his throwing program. He remains without a clear timeline for his return, though a better picture may emerge once he's cleared to throw again.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Collects three RBI in win

    Volpe went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Friday's 6-1 win versus Tampa Bay.

    The New York shortstop cracked a bases-clearing double in the third inning to extend the Yankees' lead to 4-0. This performance marks Volpe's third three-RBI game of the season. Perhaps this game's success will spur the 23-year-old on to a better second half, as he entered the evening hitting a miserable .143 (12-for-84) with eight runs scored and five RBI over his previous 20 games.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Knocks four base hits

    Soto went 4-for-4 with two doubles, three runs scored and a walk in Friday's victory over the Rays.

    The Yankees superstar was the offensive catalyst in the team's 6-1 win over Tampa Bay, reaching base in all five of his plate appearances. With this performance, Soto collected his second four-hit game in New York; the other happened against the White Sox on May 18. The free-agent-to-be is now slashing .303/.433/.569 with 23 homers, 78 runs scored and 66 RBI across 432 plate appearances this season.

  • Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Secures third win

    Cole (3-1) earned the win Friday against Tampa Bay, allowing one run on six hits and one walk over six innings. He struck out eight.

    The New York ace was in fine form, generating an impressive 16 whiffs en route to his eight punchouts, his third straight game with at least seven Ks. The lone blemish on his evening was 384-foot solo shot allowed to Brandon Lowe in the sixth. With this 103-pitch effort, Cole lowered his season ERA to 4.60 from 5.40. The 33-year-old is tentatively slated to make his next start against the Mets at home.

  • Yankees' Jose Trevino: Ahead of schedule

    Trevino (quadriceps) did some running and played catch Thursday, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    Trevino sustained a Grade 2 strain in his left hamstring July 12, but he has been progressing well since. He played catch with manager Aaron Boone on Thursday and has been able to do some light running. Still, Trevino isn't expected to be in action any time soon. Austin Wells should continue to handle most of the Yankees' catching duties.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Getting PRP injection after setback

    Berti will be given a PRP injection after suffering a setback with his left calf strain, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone deemed it a "minor" setback, but Berti won't be ready for rehab games this weekend as originally planned. It will also push back his timetable for a return, although that remains fluid. Berti has been shelved since late May.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Throwing bullpen Saturday

    Schmidt (lat) is expected to throw around 20 pitches off a mound Saturday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Schmidt hasn't thrown off a mound since being placed on the injured list May 30, making Saturday's session a significant step in his recovery from a strained right lat. The 28-year-old will likely need to complete a few more bullpen sessions before being sent out on a rehab assignment. He seems to still be a few weeks away from activation, and with Gerrit Cole back, there may not be a spot in the Yankees' rotation available for Schmidt once he's healthy.

  • Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Running bases Friday

    Stanton (hamstring) ran the bases at Yankee Stadium before Friday's game, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    It would appear to be the first time he has run the bases since going down with a left hamstring strain nearly a month ago. Stanton did not look to be running at 100 percent, but it's nonetheless a big step and signifies that a return to game action could be close. The Yankees have not yet indicated whether Stanton will require a rehab assignment before being activated.

  • Yankees' J.D. Davis: Back from injured list

    The Yankees activated Davis (illness) from the 10-day injured list Friday.

    Davis had battled a stomach bug prior to the All-Star break but is feeling well enough to suit up for the start of the second half. Ben Rice has been great against righties (.887 OPS) but hasn't done much versus lefties (.593 OPS), so the 31-year-old Davis will provide the Yankees with another option at first base against left-handed pitching.

  • Yankees' Thomas Pannone: Joins Bronx Bombers

    Pannone signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Friday, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    The left-hander spent the first half of the season on a minor-league deal with the Cubs but was released earlier this week. Pannone posted an unremarkable 4.37 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 87:32 K:BB over 19 starts for Triple-A Iowa, and he'll now report to the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
