Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius could be placed on the disabled list following a collision with Blue Jays first baseman Kendrys Morales, manager Aaron Boone told reporters after the game.

Gregorius suffered "a pretty bad bruise on his heel" after colliding with Morales while beating out a grounder for an infield single. He left the game following the second inning and was replaced by Ronald Torreyes.

"Not great there, but we'll just kind of see where we are tomorrow," Boone said, according to NJ Advance Media's Brendan Kuty, of Gregorius, who was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital for tests.

Yankees LHP CC Sabathia spent six seasons as Derek Jeter's teammate and the last four as Didi Gregorius'.

For as much of an icon Jeter was in New York, he commended Gregorius' ability to take on the role of being the franchise shortstop.

"If he wouldn't have come in and did what he did the last three or four years," Sabathia said of Gregorius, according to NJ Advance Media's Brendan Kuty, "we'd still be talking about Jeet and how we need leadership and all that stuff. ... But he's erased it. You've got to give him credit for that."

Manny Machado may not be giving his preference in where he wants the Orioles to trade him, but his nephew does. 

During an interview with MLB Network at the Home Run Derby in Washington D.C., analyst Pedro Martinez asked Machado's nephew where he wants to see his uncle play when the trade frenzy settles around MLB's biggest trade chip.

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.

Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius is having quite an interesting year, and as such, his future with the club is becoming cloudy.

Gregorius, 28, shot out of the gate with an amazing April in which he hit .327 with a .421 on-base percentage and .735 slugging percentage. That was good for a whopping 216 OPS+. Gregorius also slammed 10 home runs and drove in 30 runs.

After posting a career-best season in 2017, it seemed that Gregorius was establishing himself as one of the premier shortstops in the game...

The thought of Manny Machado donning the pinstripes sounds amazing. The 25-year-old is posting career highs with his .309/.379/.555 slash line, and is on pace to break his home run mark as well with 21 dingers on the year already.

But would the payout be worth it for a player the Yankees could simply be renting for three months?

The price is bound to be steep for Machado, but New York should be able to match it considering their deep trove of prospects. SNY's Andy Martino noted a package that includes top pitching prospect LHP Justus Sheffield and INF Brandon Drury could be in the works if the Yankees are serious...

Things to know about Monday's game

1) Sabathia (6-4) had thrown five solid innings before he came out for the sixth inning and promptly walked Mark Trumbo and allowed a double to Jonathan Schoop. Valencia then knocked Sabathia out of the game by hitting a 1-1 slider over the center-field fence to turn a 4-2 Yankees lead into a 5-4 deficit.

2) The Yankees had the tying runner in scoring position in the ninth inning when Miguel Andujar hit a pinch-hit single and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Brandon Drury moved him over to third with a groundout, but Kyle Higashioka struck out and Brett Gardner grounded out to first to end the game.

Martino on Bird's struggles 00:00:53
Andy Martino questions how long the Yankees can stay patient with Greg Bird as he continues to slump during a tight divisional race.

David Robertson allowed a tiebreaking two-run home run to Ronald Acuña Jr. in the top of the 11th inning and the Yankees struggled with runners in scoring position as they lost to the Atlanta Braves 5-3 on Monday at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Things to know about Monday's game

1) The Yankees went 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position and left 11 runners on base. Greg Bird and Austin Romine both struck out with the bases loaded in the 10th inning, while Neil Walker struck out with runners on the corners to end the eighth.

2) In the top of the 11th, Nick Markakis reached on a Gleyber Torres error to give Atlanta a baserunner. After a fielder's choice, Acuña hit Robertson's 1-2 curveball over Aaron Judge's outstretched glove for a two-run home run that broke a 3-3 tie. The Yankees went down in order in the bottom of the inning.

With just three days left to vote for the 2018 All-Star Game, Yankees OF Aaron Judge is the only pinstriped player slated to start for the American League. 

This latest update on the ballot isn't a surprise as Judge was the third-best outfielder in voting last week as well. He remains in that slot this week with 2,021,348 votes, and Mookie Betts and Mike Trout ahead of him. 

Gleyber Torres, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gary Sanchez also remain in second place for their respective positions, while Miguel Andujar fell to third in third bas voting as Astros' Alex Bregman took the runner-up position. Didi Gregorius also fell from third to fourth in the shortstop list.

Rookie second baseman Gleyber Torres hit two home runs while Aaron Judge hit his 12th homer of the season as the Yankees beat the Texas Rangers 10-5 on Monday at Globe Life Park in Arlington. >> Box score


Torres, at 21 years, 159 days, became the youngest Yankee since Mickey Mantle (20 years, 296 days) to have a multi-homer game. His second-inning homer off Bartolo Colon gave the Yankees a 3-0 lead, and he added another one in the sixth inning to make it 6-4.

Neil Walker went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs and Aaron Hicks also homered as the Yankees became the first team since the 1961 Milwaukee Brewers, according to The Athletic's Katie Sharp, to hit at least four home runs in three straight road games on the same road trip. New York also became the fourth team in modern MLB history to total at least eight extra-base hits in three straight games.

For the second straight game, Didi Gregorius found himself on the bench instead of his more familiar spot at shortstop. The Yankees were facing another lefty in Eric Skoglund, and with his slump still in full form, manager Aaron Boone found it best to sit him. 

Gregorius didn't complain. Instead, he understood exactly why his manager made the move. 

"I am not the one who makes the lineup, I can't be disappointed," Gregorius told The Post's George A. King III. "I do want to play, but there is not much we can do about it. We talked about it [Saturday]."

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...

Baseball is rife with streaks and slumps as outlooks change seemingly in an instant. Didi Gregorius' batting average is currently feeling the effects of the nature of the game.

Gregorius started the season on fire, winning AL Player of the Month. But, his form hasn't followed the calendar turn as he's enduring a wicked 1-45 slump. 

During that time, Gregorius' batting average has slipped from .372 all the way down to .248. A precipitous drop of 124-points...

Yankees SS Didi Gregorius was on top of the world in April. He was named the AL Player of the Month after hitting .327 while leading the league in extra base hits (19) and RBI (30). 

But the "April showers bring May flowers" phrase is reversed in Gregorius' case. Tbrough his first 12 games in May, Gregorius has plummeted back down to Earth and then some, as his slump continues to haunt him. 

Gregorius is stuck in the depths of a 1-for-41 slump, with his longest hitless streak at 30 at-bats. Overall, he has notched six hits over 51 at-bats in May.

Riding high on a nine-game win streak, the Yankees are currently the hottest team in baseball.

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. 

But, before the Yankees can return home, they will make a stop in a stadium that saw them freezing cold the last time they stepped on its diamond...

Orioles star Manny Machado will be a free agent at the end of the season, and has been a rumored target of the Yankees for quite some time. But there are a few issues.

With the franchise's youngest lineup in 48 years, the Yankees improved to 4-2 on their 10-game homestand with a 5-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

Luis Severino, 24, struck out six batters in seven strong innings, while 23-year-old Miguel Andujar went 4-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI as the Yankees' starting lineup featured no players over the age of 30 for the first time since 1989.

"We've worked really hard -- long before I got here -- at building this organization from the ground up," manager Aaron Boone said, according to Newsday's Erik Boland. "Feel like we're in position not only to be a really good team in the short term but in the long term, and I think that's a result of that."

The Yankees found themselves on the losing end of a 14-inning bout with the Orioles, 7-3, in the Bronx on Friday. >> Box score


It wasn't the Bronx opener that CC Sabathia had envisioned, as he left the game with right hip soreness after four innings. The 37-year-old veteran threw allowed just four hits, but three were solo homers -- two to Manny Machado and the third to Chris Davis in the fourth. Sabathia will receive an MRI later tonight.

BNNY: Machado and Gregorius 00:06:08
The Baseball Night in New York panel discusses whether Manny Machado will sign with the Yankees and if he can coexist with Didi Gregorius.

Coveted 2019 free-agent-to-be Manny Machado moved back to shortstop from third base this season and isn't planning on going anywhere next season. In the infield, that is: he hasn't pledged allegiance to staying in Baltimore. 

The Yankees are expected to be at the front of the line for Machado's suitors. But, of course, already are set at shortstop with Didi Gregorius, who is under contract through 2019. If Machado won't budge on his position, the Yankees won't have room to accommodate him.

"I moved over there for a reason," Machado said of shortstop, via Anthony Rieber of Newsday. "I made a commitment to it and I'm going to stick to it..."

When the Yankees traded for Brandon Drury, short-term and long-term questions immediately arose.

The future of Yankees' prospect Miguel Andujar, who was expected to be the favorite to break camp at third base before the trade, became a concern for those excited about the soon-to-be 23-year-old's offensive potential. The Yankees claim that Andujar is still considered the future at the hot corner, but they believe he would benefit from honing his defensive proficiency while in the minor leagues rather the majors.

Vegas has the Yankees tied with the defending World Series-champion Astros for the best odds to win the American League pennant, per Bovada.

New York and Houston both have 11/4 odds to win the pennant, while the Indians (13/4) and Red Sox (6/1) are behind them.

The Yankees were a game short of the World Series last season, where the Astros eventually finished them off in their own Minute Maid Park on their way to their first World Series title in franchise history.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives: Didi Gregorius, who will play 2018 in his age-28 season, has improved his performance year after year since coming to New York from Arizona. Not only is Gregorius demonstrating All-Star ability on the field, he has become one of the key members in the clubhouse.

In 2017, Gregorius set career highs with a .287 batting average, .478 slugging percentage, .796 OPS, 106 OPS+, 25 home runs, and 87 RBI. The impressive part to the improving counting stats is that Gregorius reached the measures in 17 fewer games and 27 fewer plate appearances than 2016. Due in part to extenuating circumstances with the rest of the lineup, Gregorius often hit cleanup in 2017.

In the field, Gregorius improved in the area of advanced defensive metrics, posting a +1 in defensive runs saved, which was much improved from his -9 mark in 2016. He has decent enough range, but whether of his own choosing or his coaches, he was often placed out of position, which prevented him from getting to some ground balls hit in his vicinity. Regardless, Gregorius continues to possess one of the stronger arms in the game from the shortstop position...
