Yanks blow out Sox 00:00:44
Aaron Boone talks about Luis Severino's stellar performance and the emergence of Luke Voit as a big bat in the Yankees lineup

The Yankees got to Red Sox LHP David Price once again on their way to a 10-1 beatdown in the Bronx on Wednesday night. >> Box score


1) Price kept the Yankees' bats at bay last time he faced their lineup, but his normal struggles against the pinstripes came back again. It was Miguel Andujar who tacked on the first run with a solo shot to right in the second. Then, after an error brought home two runs to make it 3-0, Luke Voit hit the first of two homers to right field in the fourth. A two-run shot came later in the sixth that knocked Price out of the game. 

2) Speaking of Voit, he had his first career four-game tonight. Also with multiple-hit games were Aaron Hicks and Andujar. Hicks tied Voit with a team-high three RBI night.

Yankees OF Aaron Judge went 0-for-4 in his return to the lineup on Tuesday night.

Judge hit second in the order and started in right field. 

"I felt like I never left," Judge said, per MLB.com. who said he still feels some pain in his wrist but that it won't affect his play. "Everything felt good. I felt like my at-bats were good. Seeing the ball well. That's all you can really ask for after missing that many weeks. So I'm excited with the start, we got the win and just got to keep that rolling."

Judge took 11 live at-bats against RHP A.J. Cole, RHP Chance Adams, and LHP Phillip Diehl during his game, while Chapman threw 22 pitches against INF Tyler Wade and C Kyle Higashioka

Judge and Chapman both finished their sessions without any issues coming up, which makes this another successful step toward returning to the club. On Judge specifically, manager Aaron Boone noted Sunday that there is a chance he could be a full participant for the Yankees' upcoming series with the Red Sox.

Yankees OF Aaron Judge made a cameo appearance in the outfield since coming off the 10-day DL, but he has yet to make one at home plate. However, manager Aaron Boone said that could change during their next series with the Red Sox. 

Speaking before the series finale against the Blue Jays, Boone noted the "possibility" of Judge being fully active for a crucial series with Boston. 

"I would say it's a possibility," Boone told MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "I don't think we're there. That's potentially in the timeline, but I wouldn't say we're there to make that call yet. I'd say around that time, he could be close. I would think by some point on this homestand, assuming everything continues to progress, he should be active."

Immediately before Aaron Boone met the media on Friday afternoon, Yankees media relations VP Jason Zillo dropped a stunner on reporters, announcing that the team would activate Aaron Judge before the game.

This move, of which there had been no prior warning, initially seemed like great news for the Yanks, who have desperately missed their superstar. But almost immediately, Boone added another surprise, explaining that the team was activating a player who could not yet hit.

Yankees OF Aaron Judge will be activated before Friday night's game but is not ready to be used as a hitter, manager Aaron Boone said.

"If there's a spot to get him in somewhere to run the bases," the Yankees will do it, Boone added, noting he could also be available to play defense.

Judge took batting practice and threw to home plate and third base from right field on Tuesday, with that BP session marking the second time in as many days that he hit on the field.

The Yankees have the third-best record in the majors, but for a franchise with 27 rings and World Series expectations nearly every year, that's not good enough for Mike Francesa.

Sure, New York sits 10 1/2 games back of the Red Sox in the AL East race, but the WFAN host took his criticism of the Yankees another step further on Thursday.

The Yankees are likely on their way to playing in the wild card game, and creating a roster for the winner-take-all contest is at the forefront of their front office duties. The Yankees will have to cover all the bases in a game that now has the potential to be played on the road against the surging Athletics.

Here are five questions the Yankees will have to answer when creating its wild card roster... 

Who is the starting pitcher?

The Yankees look to be getting their flamethrowing closer back. 

Manager Aaron Boone told reporters on Wednesday that LHP Aroldis Chapman will re-join the team this weekend, and there is a possibility that he will come off the DL "sometime next week," according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. 

The latest update on Chapman came this past weekend, where he was having catch from 90 feet. He has been out due to knee tendinitis that has been a recurring issue all season long...

Yankees OF Aaron Judge took batting practice and threw to home plate and third base from right field on Tuesday ahead of the team's game against the Twins at Target Field, per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.

Judge's BP session marked the second time in as many days that he hit on the field. 

The 26-year-old Judge, who has been sidelined since July with a fractured wrist, is expected to take batting practice at Yankee Stadium toward the end of the week, according to manager Aaron Boone.

Aaron Judge took batting practice on the field on Monday in Minnesota before the Yankees' game against the Twins -- hitting that goal earlier than manager Aaron Boone had predicted.

Boone said on Sunday that the hope was that Boone -- who has been out since July 26 due to a fractured wrist -- would take BP toward the end of this week at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees hope outfielder Aaron Judge can take batting practice toward the end of this week when the team returns home to Yankee Stadium, manager Aaron Boone said prior to Sunday's game.

Judge has continued to hit in the batting cages and field fly balls in the outfield over the past few days as he looks to return from a fractured wrist that has kept him out since late July.

"I think that's possible, that he will get out on the field one of those days," Boone said, according to the New York Daily News' Kristie Ackert. "I gotta look at the schedule with (team trainer) and him, but I think that's the next progression. He's hit in the cage, think there is a chance might get to the field in Minnesota, but I've gotta look."

Yankees OF Aaron Judge hit in the batting cage and fielded fly balls in the outfield on Saturday, reports Bryan Hoch of MLB.com

"We're still continuing on," manager Aaron Boone said of Judge one day after he hit outside for the first time since landing on the DL with a chip fracture in his right wrist.

On Friday, Judge hit off a tee and also participated in three rounds of soft toss from 25 feet with hitting coach Marcus Thames, according to The Post's George A. King III.

Luis Severino is the obvious choice to start the Wild Card Game for the Yankees. He has the most talent, best stuff, and is the only member of the rotation who can legitimately be labeled an ace.

The only problem? You can't start him in the wild card game -- not after last night.

Yankees SS Didi Gregorius has treated his nagging left heel injury, and is expected to return to the team on Friday for their series opener against the Mariners, reports The Post's George A. King III.

Gregorius worked out before Wednesday's series finale against the A's in Oakland, and it was enough to convince manager Aaron Boone that he was ready for game action. 

"He had a good day and we are looking at probably activating him Friday," Boone said.

Yankes outfielder Aaron Judge hit off a tee Monday in Oakland, marking it the first time since he suffered a fractured wrist in July in which he has done so, however the team doesn't have a timeframe for his return.

Judge, who has been out since July 27 when he took a Jakob Junis fastball to the wrist, took 50 swings at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum -- 25 dry swings without a baseball and 25 off a tee with a ball.

"I was feeling good," Judge said, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey. "I tried to just do my normal routine. I didn't want to take anything at 50 percent. It felt great. I took some quality hacks. We'll see how it feels in the morning."

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | TwitterThe Yankees made a nice move in acquiring Andrew McCutchen, upgrading their depleted outfield with a talented, if declining player.

So why does the trade seem like such a bummer? Two words: Aaron Judge. It wasn't so long ago that the Yankees were cruising, playing like a team bound for the World Series. Judge was the key to their offense, an irreplaceable star. When Judge injured his wrist in July, the Yankees erred in estimating that he would return in approximately three weeks.

Now, with Judge still waiting for the pain to become more manageable, it is fair to wonder if he has enough time to return and be an impact hitter this year. Whatever the Yankees say in public about their level of concern, the McCutchen trade speaks loudly about the team's confidence in Judge's recovery.

Yankees OF Aaron Judge is still not swinging and is feeling soreness when he is in motion, reports Lindsey Adler of The Athletic.

Judge said his pain has decreased, but not enough to ramp up baseball activities at this point. Judge has been out since July 26 with a chip fracture in his right wrist stemming from when he was hit by a Jakob Junis fastball against the Royals. 

"I think it usually takes about four to six weeks for stuff like that to heal, so, wait for those six weeks,'' Judge said, according to the North Jersey Record's Pete Caldera.

The Yankees have gained some ground in the AL East race, but they are still without three of their regular starters in Didi Gregorius, Aaron Judge, and Gary Sanchez

But some good news came on Sunday when Gregorius said he felt good swinging a bat for the first time since his heel injury. 

"It went good, wait and see what happens, he told The Post's George A. King III. Whatever they tell me to do, I do. It's one step at a time."

The Yankees have won four games in a row after an extra-inning win against the Marlins on Tuesday night. And though they have been slicing off a couple games in the AL East race with the Red Sox losing three straight, some don't see that competitive fire from the Bombers. 

In particular, former MLB pitcher and current MLB Network analyst, Pedro Martinez, doesn't see any real hustle or drive from the Yankees.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives: The Yankees have endured their share of injuries to key players this season, but the latest to Didi Gregorius could throw the team over the edge in terms of testing depth and the impact it will have on the club's ability to maintain their position as the league's top wild card team.

Gregorius was diagnosed with a deep bruise on his left heel after a collision at first base Sunday, with the team placing him on the 10-day DL on Tuesday. With Gregorius out, Gleyber Torres will likely take over shortstop responsibilities while Neil Walker heads back to a much more familiar spot at second base.

Removing Gregorius, who is hitting .270 with a .333 OBP and .482 slugging percentage along with 22 home runs and 74 RBI, from the lineup will have an adverse affect on a squad already missing Aaron Judge (with Giancarlo Stanton hobbled enough to keep him from playing right field) and Gary Sanchez. Gregorius is also the glue that keeps this team together in the infield, and his absence from the game will have as much of an impact as Judge's in terms of cohesiveness of the group...

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez and outfielder Aaron Judge made progress from their various injuries prior to Friday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Sanchez, who has only appeared in three games since June 24 due to a strained groin, ran the bases and took squats behind home plate as he looks to begin a rehab assignment as early as next week.

"Gary had a really good day," manager Aaron Boone said, according to Newsday's Erik Boland. "I didn't see him run but the report was that he ran really well. I was out there for his defensive work, where he was throwing to bases and he looked really good."

It has been three weeks since Aaron Judge was placed on the disabled list with a chip fracture in his right wrist, and he is still, in his words, "frustrated" that he's not in the Yankees lineup.

"I'm not frustrated with the pace, I'm frustrated with being out," Judge said, according to NJ Advance Media's Brendan Kuty. "But the pace, you never know. I got a broken bone, it's still fractured. So [I] got to give it time to heal and I got to make sure I'm 100 percent before I go back out there, because I don't want to have a setback when I come back."

Judge received a cortisone shot in his right wrist earlier this week, and the team's initial three-week timetable has already passed. GM Brian Cashman said he doesn't think Judge will "hit the ground running" once he returns, whenever that may be.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said OF Aaron Judge could begin swinging a bat as soon as this week as he works his way back from a wrist injury, reports Mandy Bell of MLB.com.

"His range of motion is really good right now, but getting to that end point we got to get that pain out of there," Boone said. "Once that happens, he'll get a bat in his hands. Hopefully it starts to progress from there very quickly."

The Yankees initially gave Judge, who left a Yankees-Royals game July 26 after he was hit by a Jakob Junis fastball in the wrist, a three-week timetable to return.

Judge says he and the rest of the team are not going to give in to that kind of talk.

Stanton provided the big blow in Wednesday night's 7-3 win to complete a sweep over the White Sox, crushing a grand slam in the top of the second. It was his sixth career slam, but more importantly, it was another big hit in the absence of Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez.

"It's good to produce any way, any time," he told The Post's Ken Davidoff. "But this is obviously more important than most times here. Just got to step it up."

Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge has started throwing but has not yet swung a bat after he suffered a fracture in his right wrist a week and a half ago, according to YES Network's Meredith Marakovits.

Judge, who has been out since leaving a Yankees-Royals game July 26 when he was hit by a pitch, has continued to receive treatment, however Judge said he still feels pain and did not stick with the Yankees' initial timeframe of a three-week return, according to NJ Advance Media's Brendan Kuty.

Manager Aaron Boone previously said it would be about three weeks for Judge to swing a bat in a game situation, be it in a rehab assignment or in an MLB game, and called it a "realistic" timeframe

The Yankees are in a bit of a pinch. 

New York lost it's third straight game, and this one was mundane on all sides for the Bombers. Luis Severino struggled once again despite slowly turning things around before his exit. And Red Sox RHP Rick Porcello absolutely dominated with a one-hit masterpiece on Friday night in Fenway Park. 

The Yankees are now 18-18 -- an even .500 -- in their last 36 games. And on top of that, Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez are still out of the lineup with their respective injuries.

Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks went 3-for-3 with his 17th home run of the season in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Kansas City Royals, continuing his success in the cleanup spot in a lineup bitten by injuries.

Hicks, whose 370-foot home run off Burch Smith gave New York a 2-0 lead in a game it wouldn't trail, is 6-for-11 in four games when batting fourth this season. He also hit a double and a single to improve his batting line to .256/.359/.491.

"I just continue to do what I do,'' Hicks said, according to Newsday's Steven Marcus. "I haven't really changed the way that I approach hitting. I'm not going to try to hit like a four-hole hitter. I'm just going to confine to be myself and do what I can to help the team win.''

Do Yankees need another bat? 00:04:33
With Aaron Judge out for at least three weeks with a chip fracture in his wrist, the BNNY panel discusses if the Yankees need another bat.

Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge is remaining positive despite being placed on the disabled list with a fracture in his right wrist. And manager Aaron Boone is also optimistic in Judge and the rest of the Yankees.

Despite the fact the Yankees lost Judge for approximately three weeks while he recovers from a chip fracture from being hit in the wrist Thursday night, Judge and Boone spoke positively.

"We can absolutely go out there and take care of business while he's down," Boone said, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey, "and hopefully when he comes back it'll just be an added bonus."

After the Yankees placed outfielder Aaron Judge on the 10-day disabled list with a chip fracture in his right wrist, manager Aaron Boone told reporters he believes the three-week timeframe for his return is "realistic."

Judge, who fractured his ulnar styloid bone, is not wearing a cast and could take dry swings and tee swings next week after he was hit by a pitch in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Kansas City Royals.

Doctors did not recommend Judge undergo surgery, and the three-week timeframe the team has on Judge could be in a rehab game.

Yankees designated hitter Aaron Judge was hit by a pitch in the first inning of Thursday's 7-2 win over the Royals, and the Yankee Stadium crowd held its collective breath.

When he came up again in the third inning, there was a sense of relief. But when Miguel Andujar pinch hit for him in the fourth inning, that's when tension began to build.

Later in the game, before the team announced Judge would miss at least three weeks with a chip fracture in his right wrist, Yankee fans showed their support in perhaps the most 2018 fashion imaginable: by holding a "candlelight vigil" with their phones.

The 26-year-old Yankees slugger, one of the top three leading vote-getters among American League outfielders, will bat sixth and start in left field for the AL in Tuesday's All-Star Game.
