The Yankees played .667 baseball through their first 81 games of the season. But after going into the All-Star break having lost six of their last 14 games, they remain hungry for more.

"Ultimately we have to be better if we want to win the division and get to where we want to be, which is to win the World Series," Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner said, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch, after Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians. I'm pleased with the way that we played in the first half, but I'm not pleased that we're not in first place in the division."

Since outslugging the Red Sox 11-1 in their series finale on July 1, the Yankees have gone 8-6. Boston, meanwhile, won 12 of its last 13 games heading into the All-Star break, as the Yankees moved from a first-place tie to 4 1/2 games back. The defending champion Astros, since July 1, have gone 9-4 and own the second-best record in baseball.

That said, Yankees manager Aaron Boone isn't focused on the standings in July.

German mediocre vs. Cleveland 00:05:00
The Baseball Night in New York panel debates which starter the Yankees should pursue after Domingo German struggled again against Cleveland.

The Yankees almost battled back from a four-run deficit, but they came up short in a 6-5 loss to the Indians on the road Friday night. >> Box score

Things to know about Thursday's game

1) This has been the story for Domingo German all season long. He has shown spurts like his last start where he can be dominant over a long stretch of a game. But then there's games like tonight, where he can't find the zone early and hits start to flurry accordingly. The Indians only collected five hits, but it resulted in six runs allowed by German due to his walks. Overall, he allowed four walks while striking out six over four innings of work.

Yanks lineup picks up Severino 00:02:45
The Yankees were able to get several key hits off of Cleveland's ace, Corey Kluber, and went on to earn a 7-4 win on Thursday night.

With Luis Severnio performing under his Cy Young-standards, the Yankees' bats were able to produce enough runs off Corey Kluber to defeat the Indians 7-4. >> Box score

Things to know about Thursday's game

1) Severino lasted just five innings, giving up four runs on nine hits with one strikeout against Kluber and the Indians. Giving Cleveland's ace a four-run cushion should have meant a loss for the Yankees, but, the bats and bullpen were able to carry the team to a win.

2) Cessa (1-1) struck out four batters in six innings, allowing three hits and three walks. Though he never retired the side in order in any inning, he kept the Orioles off the board as they went 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position off him.

The Yankees are usually known for what they can do at the plate, but Brett Gardner and Giancarlo Stanton broke that stigma in back-to-back plays Wednesday night. 

In the bottom of the third, Carlos Santana roped an opposite field fly ball that looked to be extra bases. But Gardner tracked it all the way to the wall, and leaped to make a fantastic catch before crashing into the padding.

The Yankees have made it clear they will be on the prowl for another rotation piece before the trade deadline strikes. The prospects they will part with to acquire their new arm, though, is still up in the air. 

One of the top prospects that will entice teams will likely be OF Clint Frazier, who has been the odd man out among a stacked Yankees outfield that includes veterans like Brett Gardner and Aaron Hicks along with Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge

Though Frazier's name will likely be presented to GM Brian Cashman in proposed deals, he doesn't want to see him out of pinstripes anytime soon.

Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner said while he isn't focused on free agency just yet, he hopes he can remain in New York.

Gardner, in the final year of a four-year, $52 million deal, can hit free agency in the offseason if the Yankees decline his $12.5 million team option for 2019. And the longest-tenured Yankee hopes he can remain in pinstripes beyond the 2018 season.

"I love it here," Gardner said, according to Newsday's Steven Marcus. "I've never been shy about saying that. Hopefully, I'll play for a few more years and hopefully that'll be here.''

Even when Brett Gardner makes his return from a minor knee issue, the Yankees may keep Clint Frazier on the 25-man roster.

"I think there's an avenue for that," manager Aaron Boone said, according to NJ.com's Randy Miller. "We're kind of just day by day right now based on different guys and our needs in the pitching and how many (relievers) we want to keep, (but) he's taking advantage of opportunities."

Since being recalled from the minors earlier this week in favor of infielder Ronald Torreyes, Frazier is 4-for-11 in four games (three starts), including a 2-for-4 day in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Seattle Mariners.

Yankees OF Brett Gardner could find himself back in the lineup for Wednesday night's contest in the Bronx. 

It will all depend on the treatment Gardner received on his inflamed knee on Tuesday. He hit in the batting cage before Tuesday night's 7-2 win over the Mariners. And from what manager Aaron Boone has seen from his veteran outfielder, he is very optimistic Gardern is close to returning. 

"We will see. I think it's realistic," Boone told The Post's George A. King III. about Gardner returning to lineup. "I actually believe he might be an option [Tuesday night]."

Yankees OF Clint Frazier will tell it how it is: It's frustrating being down in Triple-A. 

Frazier was called up again to the big leagues, and this time around, it isn't just to be the 26th man. He is here to stay, but how long is the question. He is with the team due to Brett Gardner nursing a sore knee, and he will likely be sent back down once that pain is alleviated.

The 23-year-old is raking in Triple-A this season with a .312/.389/.558 slash line with seven homers and 11 RBI over 38 games. He could certainly be making contributions at the major league level with those types of numbers, but with the Yankees boasting a stacked outfield, Frazier has been the odd man out.

Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner said he hopes to return to the lineup for Monday's games against the Washington Nationals after sitting Sunday's series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays with a sore knee, according to YES Network's Meredith Marakovits.

Gardner, who has played in 59 of New York's 67 games, underwent an MRI on Sunday morning that revealed some minor inflammation, but nothing more. He also did not play in Thursday's series-opener.

"It's not really something I've had an issue with in the past," he said, according to NJ.com's Brendan Kuty. "A little alarmed by it not really feeling like it should. Got an MRI this morning. Everything looked pretty good on that. ... It wasn't necessarily any one injury or any one thing. Just kind of an over-time thing, I guess."

GEICO SportsNite: Mets injuries 00:02:21
Andy Martino joins the show to discuss the Mets' injury woes this season and the hamstring injury Masahiro Tanaka suffered Friday night.

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter | : Opening night of the 2018 Subway Series began in Metsian fashion, with injury announcements regarding two key pitchers -- Noah Syndergaard and Jeurys Familia.

By the middle of the evening, the plague had spread to the other team, when Masahiro Tanaka left after five innings with soreness in two hamstrings. Yes, you read that correctly. The hamstrings in both legs.

Before the night was over, the Yankees' trainer would visit Aroldis Chapman, and Jacob deGrom would have his heart broken yet again. It was not a good night to be a pitcher in New York.

Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner extended his hitting streak to seven games by going 3-for-4 in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels at Yankee Stadium.

Gardner was not a factor in the Yankees' three-run third inning -- the Yankees scored on Aaron Hicks' bases-loaded walk, Greg Bird's bases-loaded HBP and a Miguel Andujar fielder's choice -- but Gardner had three of New York's five hits.

"I feel good at the plate," Gardner told reporters after the game. "I'm seeing the ball well and just trying to put at-bats together to get on base for the guys behind me."

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter | It hasn't been easy to find ways to write about the Yankees lately, at least without looking ridiculous. There's only so many holes an analyst can poke in a 30-13 team. Yeah, they need rotation help, but we've said that already.

What's left to write? "The Yankees continue to be awesome" is hardly news. So we were pleased to find, following the team's weekend romp in Kansas City, an actual problem. Are you ready for it? The Yankees have … way too many good players. They are facing a roster crunch that almost never happens in baseball.

This is not an issue relatable to the Mets, who somehow scratched out a win Sunday with a lineup that felt more appropriate for a spring training road game. And while the Yankees are pleased that their problems are of the first-world variety, they face difficult decisions on talented players...

He came into the game hitting .198 with only three doubles and a single home run over the first 32 games of the season. But in a game with the AL East lead on the line, Brett Gardner finally broke out.

Gardner led the game off with a double off Rick Porcello to right center field that almost cleared the fence for a leadoff homer. He would rope another double in his next at-bat, this time splitting the gap in left center. Mitch Moreland robbed him off his third extra-base hit on the night with a nice play in the fourth. 

But it was Gardner's third extra-base hit of the night that meant the most.

The comparisons are beginning to percolate between the 2018 New York Yankees squad, and the 1998 team that graced us with one of the best seasons ever turned in by a baseball team in MLB history.

The obvious similarity is the record each possessed after 34 games -- the 1998 team was 26-8, while the Yankees of today sit at 24-10. The '98 club got off to a rocky start (1-4), but turned the corner rather quickly and fiercely, winning 25 of their next 29 games. The current Yanks are on a 15-1 run after failing to find anything, but a middle ground for the team's first 18 games.

After his first 20-homer, 20-steal season at the age of 33, traction developed considering the Yankees picking up Brett Gardner's 2019 club option. However, over the Yankees' first 30 games this season, Gardner's lackluster production is giving pause to the possibility.

We're not debating whether Gardner should be traded (that ship has sailed). Rather, we're questioning whether or not he can do enough this season to persuade the Yankees to fork over $12.5 million for another go-around with the club (there is a $2 million buyout) in 2019. The game is in the midst of a transforming mindset where players in their mid-30s are tagged as "over the hill," and the Yankees have fully bought into a youth movement throughout the major league roster.

The Bronx Bombers swept the Angels on Sunday night with a close 2-1 win as they continue to heat up heading into May. They outscored the Angels 17-5 in the series, and this is a team that was 16-9 -- almost the same record as New York (15-9) -- heading into the series.

The Yankees have placed OF Aaron Hicks on the 10-day DL due to a Grade 1 right intercostal muscle strain and recalled OF Billy McKinney from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, GM Brian Cashman said Friday.

Hicks started in center field yesterday, playing the entire game while going 2-for-4 with two strikeouts. Cashman told reporters that Hicks felt the injury between his third and fourth at-bats.

The 23-year-old McKinney, who will be making his big league debut, hit .277/.338/.483 with 16 HR in 124 games while splitting last season between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A.

With two gargantuan outfielders on the roster, it can be easy for Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner to become hidden from view. However, Gardner's stature on the field and in the clubhouse is always front and center.

The Yankees tout one of the more powerful offenses in the game, and it will be sparked, or it could fizzle out, depending on Gardner's contributions at the top of the lineup. Gardner, while subject to losing time in the field to his larger counterparts, remains one of the best defensive left fielders in baseball.

It may have been a great catch, but Clint Frazier's leap and fall at the wall on Saturday gave the Yankees' outfielder a concussion, per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.

Manager Aaron Boone said that though the concussion will see Frazier riding the bench for a few days, he is "pretty optimistic" he will be back in the lineup soon. 

Frazier is battling to be on the 25-man roster this Spring Training, as there is an overhaul of outfielders in the running. Among centerfielders, Aaron Hicks and Jacoby Ellsbury look to be ahead of him on the depth chart. Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge are also expected to see time in right for when Brett Gardner needs a break.

The Yankees have many tasks to complete down in Tampa before the season starts, and maybe none takes precedent over how to split time with the dynamic duo of Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge.

The idea to rotate them behind right field and designated hitter isn't a simple solution as the Yankees would like to get them more playing time in the field. That is why new first-base coach and outfield instructor Reggie Willits will work with both players in left field to see if that would be an option new manager Aaron Boone could use. 

"It's going to be exciting," Willits told MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "Everybody asks that question like it's a problem. It's not a problme at all. It's a pretty big blessing."

The New York Yankees are firmly and legitimately back in win-now mode.

They claim year after year to be ready to compete for a championship, but the truth is the last couple of seasons there were more questions than answers. However, courtesy of an extended 2017 postseason run and the addition of Giancarlo Stanton earlier in the offseason, the Yankees are a real threat now. If New York manages to land free agent right-hander Yu Darvish, they will be putting an exclamation point on this offseason, demonstrating they view themselves as a bonafide World Series contender.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | ArchivesFor once, Brett Gardner may be in the midst of a truly relaxing offseason.

There is something different about this winter for the Yankees' left fielder; Gardner's name is not mentioned in virtually every trade the club is rumored to be interested in making. In fact, Gardner trade rumors - an annual offseason tradition - are near non-existent besides intermittent Twitter chatter. The interesting aspect of this change of pace is that Gardner's economically sound contract is tied to a player coming off a solid all-around 2017 season.

At the outset of the 2017 season, Gardner was tasked by former Yankees manager Joe Girardi to be the catalyst for the club, and push aside a rough 2016 season. Girardi told Gardner he had to work to score 100 runs, and if he was able to do so, the Yankees would be a tough team to beat. Gardner narrowly missed the milestone, but Girardi pegged the premise correctly in that Gardner was the spark-plug the Yankees needed at the top of the order.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives: Aaron Boone's first major test as manager may be figuring out how to juggle five outfielders with four full-time positions available.

With Jacoby Ellsbury seemingly steadfast in staying a Yankee -- courtesy of a no-trade clause he does not want to waive -- Boone will have to determine how the 34-year-old slots into the plans for the 2018 season.

Ellsbury is not as terrible as many make him out to be, but he has failed to live up to his astronomical $153 million price tag. And the annual cost certainly doesn't fit the role of bench player. That's the Yankees' fault and it's now haunting them beyond simple performance on the field. There are no two ways about it -- Ellsbury's presence on the roster is going to cause headaches for Boone...

The Yankees rocked the baseball world by acquiring reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton, who will further boost one of the game's prodigious offenses. The additional fire power will be welcomed, but there are several factors improved by Stanton's addition to the roster.

The Yankees have been in contact with the Marlins about OF Giancarlo Stanton, who Miami is hoping to trade this offseason, reports Jon Heyman of FanRag. Heyman notes that the Yankees -- who have been on the fringes of the Stanton market -- are intent on getting under the luxury tax threshold for next season, and suggests that any deal for Stanton would "have to include some combination of Jacoby Ellsbury, Chase Headley, and maybe Brett Gardner" to make that goal attainable.

Stanton, who has a full no-trade clause, has reportedly prioritized going to the west coast. And it was reported Wednesday by Jon Morosi of Fox Sports that the Marlins would likely be willing to trade Stanton to the Giants for INF Joe Panik, RHP Tyler Beede, and OF Chris Shaw if the Giants were willing to absorb at least $250 million of the $295 million owed to Stanton.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | : The Yankees may not have huge holes to fill, but they will be active during the offseason.

They are in the market for a starting pitcher, and would benefit from adding a DH as well, but with some ability for others to occasionally man the role.

Signing Japanese star Shohei Otani could solve the vacancies all alone. A perfect fit rarely sits in front of a team, but Otani seems to be a peg that would slide smoothly into two holes. The kicker - as if the Yankees would need one - is that Otani will come at an incredible bargain as the team strives to stay below the 2018 competitive balance tax.

After a disappointing season at the plate in 2016, the Yankees earned back the nickname Bronx Bombers in 2017. Maybe that should be Baby Bombers.

Here are some Yankees offensive stats with AL and MLB ranks...

GEICO SportsNite: Yankees win 00:01:29
Todd Frazier, Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius talk about the Yankees' offensive outburst in their win in Game 3 of the ALCS.

Aaron Judge and Todd Frazier both hit three-run home runs while CC Sabathia threw six solid innings as the Yankees blew out the Houston Astros 8-1 in Game 3 of the ALCS on Monday at Yankee Stadium. >> Read more


Despite being held to two runs and 10 hits in Games 1 and 2, the Yankees exploded for three runs in the second inning and five runs in the fourth as they remained undefeated at home in the postseason and cut the series deficit to 2-1.

After Starlin Castro and Aaron Hicks both hit two-out singles off Astros starter Charlie Morton in the bottom of the second inning, Frazier lunged to hit a 1-1 fastball over the right-field fence to give New York a 3-0 lead.

In the fourth inning, Chase Headley recorded the first hit by a Yankees designated hitter this postseason by driving in Greg Bird with a two-out single. Morton then hit Brett Gardner to load the bases and was replaced by Will Harris, who threw a wild pitch that scored Frazier and then surrendered a 371-foot home run to Judge that blew the game wide open.

The Yankees have scored just two runs and produced 10 hits in two 2-1 losses to the Astros in the ALCS after finishing second in the MLB in runs scored during the regular season.

While the team's bullpen has been lights out for the majority of the playoffs and Masahiro Tanaka has recorded two quality starts, the Baby Bombers have been quiet in the ALCS. C Gary Sanchez, who had 33 home runs and 90 RBI in 2017, has struck out five times in seven at-bats and doesn't have a single hit. RF Aaron Judge, who hit an AL-leading 52 homers, has just one hit and hasn't driven in a run.

Anthony McCarron, SNY.tv | Twitter | : Yankees-Astros Friday night was really all about Dallas Keuchel, as it usually is when the Astros ace lefty pitches against the Yanks. Keuchel was dominant again in the AL Championship Series opener, throwing seven shutout innings.

Now, with a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series, the Astros will send their ace righty, Justin Verlander, to the mound in Saturday's Game 2. With a loss, the Yanks would face a huge deficit - yes, we know they came back from 0-2 in the first round against Cleveland. But two enormous turnarounds against two 100-plus-win teams in the same October?

Sounds unlikely...

Beginning of a Yankees dynasty? 00:03:59
The Daily News Live crew breaks down the bright future for this young Yankees team and how they could be set up for another dynasty.

Anthony McCarron, SNY.tv | Twitter | : After two games of the AL Division Series, the Yankees seemed primed for a blink-and-you-missed-it October visit. The winter would be devoted to recriminations over Joe Girardi's tactical meltdown in Game 2 threaded around hopeful talk of young players growing after a fine season.

But after coming back from an 0-2 deficit to beat the Indians, the Yankees have crushed anyone's timetable on the arrival of their looming juggernaut, including, probably, their own. Maybe they weren't supposed to be this complete, this fast, but here they are.

Watch out, Astros, beginning in the best-of-seven AL Championship Series, which starts Friday night in Houston. Watch out, the rest of baseball, now and in the coming years.

In order to complete the series reversal and head to the ALCS against Houston, the Yankees must once again get through Indians ace Corey Kluber back in Cleveland. 

No one expected Kluber to be done after three innings in Game 2 as the Yankees plated six runs of the AL Cy Young candidate. CC Sabathia also started in that game, and though he allowed the Indians to get back in it, he thrived when the Yankees stretched the lead. 

This is why OF Brett Gardner is confident in Sabathia to lead to Yankees to victory.

Manager Joe Girardi and pitcher Luis Severino discuss Severino's ability to bounce back in Game 4 of the American League Division Series.

The Yankees scored six runs off four Cleveland Indians errors, while Luis Severino struck out nine batters in seven strong innings as New York forced a Game 5 with a 7-3 win in Game 4 of the ALDS on Monday at Yankee Stadium. >> Read more


The Yankees scored four runs in the second inning after Starlin Castro reached when his line drive deflected off Indians third baseman Giovanny Urshela's leg.

With two outs, Todd Frazier drove in Castro with an RBI double off Trevor Bauer and later scored on Aaron Hicks' RBI single to right center. Two batters later, Aaron Judge recorded a two-run double down the left-field line to make it 4-0.
