The Yankees jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, taking down the Tigers on their home field, 10-4, in Game 1 of the team's doubleheader. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Thursday's Game 1...

1) J.A. Happ was looking to continue his hot streak on the mound lately, and though it wasn't the scoreless innings he posted in his last two outings, it was a decent start for the lefty. Over 4.2 innings, Happ allowed two runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six. He also let up one homer in his 99-pitch start.

The Yankees (95-51, 8.5 GA in AL East) jumped out to a six-run lead before a back-and-forth game ensued, ultimately suffering a 12-11 loss to the Tigers (43-100, 45.5 GB in AL Central, 40.5 GB for second Wild Card) Tuesday at Comerica Park in Detroit. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game

1) Pitching ultimately failed the Yankees. LHP Nestor Cortes Jr. (5-0, 5.23 ERA) initially came out strong as the Yankees' opener, pitching a pair of scoreless innings in his first career start before he went back out for the third frame and ran into trouble. The Tigers caught up and tagged Cortes, who struckout two and walked one, for four runs (two earned) on six hits before manager Aaron Boone made the move to remove the southpaw with one out in the third inning and the Yankees leading 6-2.

After more than two months in the minor leagues, Clint Frazier appears ready for his return to the big leagues.

The 24-year-old outfielder received the call back up to the Yankees following the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre Railriders' game Saturday night, according to Conor Foley of The Times-Tribune in Scranton.

"Honestly feels like the first time I got called up all over again," Frazier told Foley.

The Yankees top prospect, RHP Deivi Garcia will move to the bullpen for the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders for the rest of the season according to Conor Foley of The Times-Tribune in Scranton.

Foley noted that the Yankees have made similar moves like this last season with RHP Chance Adams and LHP Justus Sheffield. This was in preparation for the end of season roles that each player was going to have with the team. Adams pitched in three games last season, going 0-1 with a 7.04 ERA. While Sheffield also pitched in three games, throwing just 2.2 innings and allowing three earned runs on four hits.

Garcia, the No. 64 prospect in the MLB, has struggled in his two most recent starts. He failed to make it through the fifth inning in either game, and allowed two runs in both match-ups. He struck out a total of nine batters and walked four over 8.1 combined innings of work.

Paxton honest after early exit 00:01:03
James Paxton and Aaron Boone commented on the starter's disappointing outing against the Mets in a 10-4 loss. Boone thinks Paxton was tired.

The Yankees were unable to complete the doubleheader sweep, falling the in second game to the Mets on Tuesday 10-4. >> Box score

5 takeaways from Tuesday's game...

1) James Paxton did not pitch well for the second consecutive start. He has yet to pitch more than five innings since coming off the IL on May 29 (albeit he was on a strict pitch count his first start back) and this time he could not even make it out of the third, lasting just 2.2 innings and allowing six earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out just one. His ERA has skyrocketed to 4.04.

Florial returned from the IL after recuperating from a non-displaced right wrist fracture that he sustained crashing into the outfield wall toward the end of spring training. Florial got off to a very nice start, going 6-for-20 with two doubles and a home run in six games. He has already swiped three bases, too.

The Yankees appear to be getting two critical pieces of their rotation back this week. 

LHP James Paxton was activated off the IL on Tuesday, with RHP Joe Harvey being optioned to Triple-A, and will start on Wednesday against the Padres while LHP CC Sabathia appears to be on the horizon as well, with the potential to pitch on Sunday against the Red Sox. 

While the Yankees have not announced their rotation beyond Wednesday, here is how it would likely play out with the Red Sox coming to town for a four-game set:

The Yankees beat the Royals, 6-5, to earn a sweep in today's split doubleheader at Kauffman Stadium. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Saturday's game...

1) After Chad Green allowed a first inning run as the Yankees opener, the team turned to Chance Adams, the club's 26th man for the doubleheader. Adams pitched well, despite his line as his defense was atrocious behind him and the official scorer handed out some gift hits to the Royals that probably should have been ruled errors. Regardless, anyone watching had to like how Adams got the ball back each time his defense failed him, threw strikes and worked at a very good pace. He earned his first career MLB win.

The Yankees need rotation depth, and the time is fast approaching when they'll have to make a decision as to the route they'll take to secure it.

The Yankees lost another rotation member Tuesday, when the club placed CC Sabathia on the 10-day injured list due to pain in his surgically repaired right knee. The Yankees are already down staff ace Luis Severino. And while James Paxton is close to returning from an injury of his own, he's not exactly the poster child for health.

Loaisiga was placed on the injured list (now shifted to the 60-day list) with a strained right shoulder. Loaisiga, who has a significant injury history, has thrown 14 innings with the Yankees to the tune of a 4.50 ERA and another 10 innings for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre recording an ERA of 7.20.

The Yankees announced Monday afternoon that Luis Cessa will start Monday night's series opener against the Orioles instead of Jonathan Loaisiga.

Loaisiga was placed on the injured list, retroactive to May 10, with a right rotator cuff strain and will be shut down for four weeks before he can begin throwing. RHP Chance Adams was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take his roster spot. Loaisiga had a rough start last Wednesday against the Mariners, allowing four runs in four innings on six hits and two walks while striking out three.

Albert Abreu, RHP, Double-A Trenton (No. 3) -- ETA 2020

Abreu followed up a six-inning scoreless outing with a one-run effort, but he lasted just 4.2 innings. The right-hander continued to allow too many baserunners (1.91 WHIP in 26 innings), which is preventing him from pitching deep into games. Abreu did lower his ERA to 4.73 on the season.

Greg Bird did his best to gain ground on Luke Voit in the competition for first base, hitting a three-run home run in the first inning of the Yankees' rain-shortened 10-4 loss Wednesday against the Tigers in Lakeland. The game was called after six innings.

Things to know about Wednesday's game

1. Bird was the DH while Voit played first base. Bird drove in Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres with his homer while finishing 1-for-2. Voit, who homered and had four RBI on Sunday, went 0-for-1 with a walk Wednesday. Voit is 2-for-4 this spring while Bird is 3-for-5.

After being rained out on Tuesday, the Yankees (2-1) hit the road to face the Tigers (2-2) in Lakeland.

Yankees Notes...

Gleyber Torres is set for his first start at shortstop this spring after playing twice at second base. He would be the next man up at short should new signing Troy Tulowitzki get hurt as Didi Gregorius continues to recover from Tommy John surgery. Both Luke Voit and Greg Bird are in the lineup as they compete for the first-base job.

With September upon us, the MLB allows all teams to activate anyone on their 40-man roster to join the big club throughout the month. While teams normally don't activate all of those players on the roster, bringing in some reinforcements to give players a break is usually taken advantage of. 

The Yankees will definitely expand their roster, especially being slated for a playoff spot come October. Here are a few players that fans can expect to see in pinstripes this month...

Yankees fall to Marlins 00:03:21
The Baseball Night in New York panel discusses the New York Yankees' struggles at the plate in the team's 9-3 loss to the Miami Marlins.

The Yankees had the early lead, but the Marlins' bats got red hot late in the game to split the two-game series in a 9-3 loss for the Bombers. >> Box score 


1) The sixth inning is where everything went south for the Yanks. Lance Lynn was rolling through the Marlins' lineup through the first five innings, and the Yankees had managed to put two runs across the board. However, Lynn gave up back-to-back singles to start the sixth, and it would lead to one run coming across on an infield single by Austin Dean. The big blow was Miguel Rojas, though, who belted a three-run homer to take a 4-2 lead. Tommy Kahnle, then, let up a double to score another run. 

2) Chance Adams, who was recalled from Triple-A in place of Aroldis Chapman, had an outing he probably would like to forget. He allowed four runs, three earned on four hits and three walks over 1.2 innings. He also allowed a homer to JT Riddle as well. He isn't making a good first impression in the Bigs with a 8.10 ERA.

After making his major league debut this past weekend, the Yankees sent RHP Chance Adams back down to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after Wednesday night's win over the White Sox. 

Adams, who is the Yankees' No. 13 ranked prospect according to MLB.com, made a spot start in place of J.A. Happ. The righty lasted five innings, allowing three runs on three hits including two homers while striking out two and walking one. 

In Triple-A this season, Adams owns a 4.50 ERA over 21 starts (98 innings).

Before the season, Yankees RHP Chance Adams was ranked among the top 100 prospects by Baseball America, MLB.com and Baseball Prospectus.

But despite a disappointing season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Adams is likely to make his MLB debut Saturday when the Yankees, whose rotation is in flux, face the Red Sox in the third game of a crucial four-game series.

So what does Adams bring to the table?

After the Yankees burned Luis Cessa, who was slated to start Saturday after they placed J.A. Happ on the disabled list, in Thursday's 15-7 loss, there's a chance (no pun intended) that Chance Adams could make his MLB debut this weekend against the Red Sox.

Given Cessa threw 51 pitches and allowed five runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings, manager Aaron Boone told reporters he didn't think the Yankees' starting pitcher on Saturday was on the current 25-man roster.

And since Justus Sheffield pitched Thursday, that makes Adams, New York's No. 12 prospect who is currently scheduled to pitch this weekend for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, a likely option.

The reports that the Yankees were unwilling to trade any of their top 10 prospects in a Manny Machado deal have quickly turned false. 

New York is still in the running for Machado, and though The Post reported a top-10 prospects wouldn't be in any deal, they learned otherwise on Sunday. Another source said the Yankees are willing to deal away one of their prized youngsters, with OF Estevan Florial, RHP Albert Abreu, RHP Chance Adams, and SS/2B Thairo Estrada all on that list.

The Orioles are reportedly looking for young pitching, and the biggest hold up on a Machado-to-Yankees deal is New York's unwillingness to deal their top pitching prospect, LHP Justus Sheffield. Because of this, the Dodgers and Phillies are the strongest suitors to land MLB's biggest trade chip by the July 31 deadline.

Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner knows what the rest of us do about the Yankees: They need starting pitching. 

The rotation was a question to begin the year, and it certainly didn't help when the injury bug found its way to it. Jordan Montgomery had to undergo Tommy John surgery last week, and most recently, Masahiro Tanaka was lost to injured hamstrings after tagging up on a fly ball during the series with the Mets this past weekend.

There needs to be more depth in the rotation, and Steinbrenner admitted Wednesday that the team has money to go out and get someone by the trade deadline.

The Yankees entered spring camp with at least 80 percent of the rotation set in stone with the fifth piece fairly certain. Once Yankees skipper Aaron Boone wasted no time in naming Jordan Montgomery his fifth starter, it became apparent the Yankees knew all along they would begin the season with the same starting five they ended 2017.

The question becomes: Were the Yankees wise to abstain from what became a severely inexpensive pitching market for proven middle of the rotation starters? For example, Lance Lynn signed for just one year at $12 million, while Alex Cobb remains unsigned.

The Yankees have recently been reported to be both not interested and interested in Cobb, so who knows what's going on there? At the beginning of the offseason, I was of the mindset that it was OK to avoid spending big money on either pitcher, but since the market came down to one-year deals, it forces revisiting.

The Yankees have reportedly expressed interest in free agent RHP Alex Cobb, formerly of the Rays, reports Newsday. With starting pitchers Jake Arrieta and Lance Lynn now off the market, the 30-year-old Cobb is the best remaining option who has yet to sign.

Two potential obstacles could get in the way of a deal from the Yankees' perspective. New York is adamant about staying under the luxury-tax threshold, so as in the case of the recently-signed Neil Walker, the price would have to be right. Cobb also rejected the Rays' $17.4 million qualifying offer, meaning whichever team signs him will forfeit at least one draft pick.

The Yankees' rotation currently includes RHPs Luis SeverinoMasahiro Tanaka and Sonny Gray and LHPs CC Sabathia and Jordan Montgomery

When the Yankees pulled off Tuesday's trade for infielder Brandon Drury, it did more than solidify the team's current roster construction. It provides the team significant advantages with how it molds the organization's structure going forward.

Drury is to be paid at a pre-arbitration rate for the 2018 season (he made $553,900 in 2017, so a fair guess is $600,000 this season), which leaves the Yankees practically all of the $15 million it has been reported they would be willing to take on before the season begins. That value provides a cushion of approximately $5 million for the club to utilize during the season, and would keep the team under the competitive balance tax threshold.

Opening Day may still be six weeks away, but a trio of Yankees hurlers are armed and ready to showcase their talents at the Major League level right now.

RHP Chance AdamsDillon Tate and LHP Justus Sheffield may not be able to find room in the Yankees rotation at the start of the season, but that doesn't mean they aren't ready for what the big leagues has to offer.

"We really do feed off each other," said Sheffield, 22, who posted a 3.12 ERA in 19 minor league starts in 2017. "That's going to push us."

As the Yankees have fully embraced the youth movement, it should be no shock that the club will rely on rookies in its effort to return to the postseason. We'll cover five rookies -- including a couple of sleepers -- that may make significant impacts for the Yankees this season.

Pitching prospects Justus Sheffield and Chance Adams are among 20 non-roster players the Yankees will invite to spring training.

Sheffield, 21, was ranked the No. 16 overall prospect by ESPN's Keith Law and No. 41 prospect by Baseball America entering the season. Last year, he went 7-6 with a 3.18 ERA in 17 starts with Double-A Trenton.

Adams, whom Baseball America ranked No. 81 in its top 100 list, could compete for a spot in New York's rotation after going 15-5 with a 2.45 ERA across two levels last year. He went 4-0 with a 1.03 ERA in four starts with Trenton before he was promoted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he went 11-5 with a 2.89 ERA and 103 strikeouts in 115 1/3 innings.

The Yankees and Pirates are reportedly "nowhere" near a deal that would be centered around RHP Gerrit Cole, according to reporter Bob Klapisch.

New York and Pittsburgh have been engaged in trade talks for weeks, and the Yankees have been interested in acquiring Cole since last year's trade deadline, however while both sides had previously expressed confidence a deal could be completed, according to Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan, talks have cooled.

The Pirates had reportedly asked the Yankees about top infield prospect Gleyber Torres, however the Yankees had reportedly preferred 23-year-old outfielder Clint Frazier being the centerpiece of the trade. New York likely would have needed to trade another prospect as well in a deal, whether it be third baseman Miguel Andujar or RHP Chance Adams.
