The Yankees squandered a four-run lead and lost to the White Sox, 5-4, at Guaranteed Rate Field.>> Box score

5 takeaways from Thursday's game...

1) J.A. Happ cruised through the first three innings, ran into trouble in the fourth, but got out of it unscathed. The fifth inning was where it all came undone for Happ as he allowed four runs, highlighted by Tim Anderson's three-run homer. Yankees starters having become completely unreliable and it is adversely affecting the rest of the club by making relievers work harder and the offense press to score more runs than should be necessary to win games.

Both Adam Ottavino and Aroldis Chapman were charged with blown saves in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field. 

New York's bullpen, which had been one of the team's biggest strengths, had faltered during the Yankees' recent slide.

And yet, the pitching staff is confident it can right the ship.

Yankees notes

The Yankees have lost five of their last six games entering today. ...Didi Gregorius belted his first homer of the season last night. He finished the night 2-for-4. ...Domingo German was placed on the 10-day IL with a hip flexor strain. He had been struggling a bit in his last few starts, which could be attributed to the injury. ...DJ LeMahieu might have had his 11-game hit streak snapped on Friday night, but he came back yesterday with a 2-for-4 performance.

The Yankees lost their second straight in Cleveland Saturday, 8-4, and have now lost five of their last six games. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Saturday's game

1) Things started well for CC Sabathia as he began the day with three scoreless innings. But he gave up two runs in the fourth which tied the game, and then surrendered a two-run homer to Oscar Mercado in the fifth, allowing Cleveland to take a 4-2 lead. Sabathia finished the inning and then his day was done. He allowed seven hits and a walk while striking out eight.

Could Troy Tulowitzki's days as a Yankee be numbered?

Aaron Boone told reporters in Cleveland on Saturday that Tulowitzki remains at home and is evaluating his future based on the organization's needs and what's best for him and his family.

Tulowitzki was just transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday when Didi Gregorius was activated off the IL.

The Yankees (39-23, 0.5 GA in AL East) look to bounce back in Cleveland (32-31, 10.5 GB in AL Central) on Saturday at 4:10 p.m.

Yankees notes

Saturday's lineup represents an example of how Aaron Boone will keep DJ LeMahieu in the lineup with a crowded infield now that Didi Gregorius is back. With Gleyber Torres back at second and Gio Urshela at third, LeMahieu is starting at first base for the second time this season. It's his third career start and eighth career appearance at first. ... Luke Voit is getting the day off after taking a golden sombrero (four strikeouts) on Friday. Kendrys Morales will DH. ... Gary Sánchez is also out of the lineup.

The Yankees lost to the Indians, 5-2, at Progressive Field on Friday night. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Friday's game

1) Domingo German is trying to develop while pitching in the big leagues. It was working for his first several starts, but of late he's been missing spots and major league batters are making him pay. German allowed just two home runs in his first seven starts, but in his last six outings he's given up 10 homers. With German likely on an innings limit for the season, it is plausible that the Yankees could shift him to the bullpen once the club pulls off an expected trade for starting pitching.

The Yankees could let Didi Gregorius get more minor-league at-bats before activating him from the injured list for Friday's game in Cleveland, but they feel he's ready to go.

Gregorius, who has not played yet this season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in October, is just 3-for-25 over six games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after going 2-for-7 with High-A Tampa.

"Because Didi has had a ton of at-bats if you go back to his extended spring training where he was able to rack up live at-bats," Aaron Boone said, per NJ.com. "Now obviously between playing A-ball and Triple-A, he's essentially had a spring training and then some of at-bats.

Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu ranks in the top 10 in the American League in batting average (.311). He is tied with Gary Sanchez for the team lead with a 2.0 WAR.

And he has been among the most clutch players in baseball.

Thrust into a starting role upon injuries to Didi GregoriusMiguel Andujar and Troy Tulowitzki, LeMahieu has taken full advantage by becoming one of the most reliable Yankees in the lineup.

At long last, the cavalry is returning for the Yankees. Ironically enough, the first major player to return from the injured list is probably the one that most fans thought would come back last.

Shortstop Didi Gregorius is expected to return to the Yankees' roster Friday, giving the Yankees back one of their best overall players. It's been a long time coming for Gregorius, who will return ahead of schedule after October 2018 Tommy John surgery that threatened to sideline him until Independence Day.

Now that Gregorius's return is imminent, the Yankees have some questions to answer. They have to clear a roster spot and find time in the lineup for him without disrupting the chemistry that has fueled the Yankees to an AL East lead in his absence.

The Yankees have held their own without several players that were set to be key components to the 2019 season. One of those players, Didi Gregorius, is getting very close to returning to action just over seven months after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Despite the Yankees infielders' early season success, Gregorius' absence was felt in numerous ways.

The Yankees don't have Aaron JudgeGiancarlo StantonMiguel Andujar or Didi Gregorius, a group that combined for 119 home runs last year.

And still, they're finding ways to win ... win a lot.

"These guys, the focus each and every day is on the game and playing winning baseball, and everyone kind of pulling their weight, and the mantra of come in and do your job," manager Aaron Boone said, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey. "They've really taken to that, and a lot of them really well."

The 2019 Yankees offense isn't your father's Yankees offense.

This year's squad ranks seventh league-wide in both runs and home runs - not bad, but not quite what the team was expecting coming into the year. After injuries to sluggers Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Didi Gregorius and Miguel Andujar, among others, it's understandable that the Yankees' offense would see a decline in the power department.

Has that stopped them? Not one bit.

Gio Urshela, the surprise star of this season, may personify the success of the next-man-up Yankees, but even with all of his big hits, he's not the team MVP to this point. D.J. LeMahieu owns that unofficial title, so clutch and consistent that his play prompts an intriguing question:

Could a non-slugger win the AL MVP Award in this launch-angle era when the only way most hitters even consider beating the infield shift is by going over it -- way over it?

Heading into the offseason after their ALDS loss to the Red Sox, the Yankees had offseason goals to fortify their roster so that result didn't occur yet again. Starting pitching was an obvious top-of-the-list priority, but there was also the prospect of adding All-Star Manny Machado to an already-stacked lineup that touted the likes of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton

But the Yankees never made that giant splash many expected GM Brian Cashman to make. He did trade with the Mariners for lefty James Paxton to be the team's hopeful ace (he's finally trending in that direction after his last two starts), but the Machado signing never came to fruition. In fact, the Yankees didn't have too much interest in the young infielder. 

Instead, Cashman took a flyer on Troy Tulowitzki to fill in at shortstop while Didi Gregorius rehabbed his way back from Tommy John surgery. And even before that signing, the Yankees brought free agent DJ LeMahieu on board to be their versatile infielder through the season.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman went on Mike Francesa's WFAN show Monday afternoon and gave updates on the team's laundry list of injuries. Here's a look at the latest on the injured Yankees stars:

Aaron Judge

The Yankees' injury woes got worse when Judge suffered an oblique strain over the weekend. Cashman said the strain is "significant" and it doesn't seem as if he'll be back anytime soon. "We're just gonna have to repackage and plug and play with what we've got," Cashman said. "Our job is to find a way regardless of what circumstances (are.)"

With news that Gary Sanchez was placed on the 10-day injured list on Friday, the Yankees now have a major-league leading 12 players on the IL. 

The list consists of seven position players and five pitchers, although CC Sabathia will return to the team on Saturday, but it is still half the roster that is sidelined. 

Just how significant are the players missing time with injury?

The Yankees are giving catcher Gary Sanchez as much rest as he needs so he avoids a significant trip to the injured list like last season.

Sanchez, who was a designated hitter on Tuesday and pinch hit Wednesday, has been dealing with tightness in his legs for the past few days. This injury is not related to him taking a foul tip in the groin in Monday's game, however manager Aaron Boone said he would rather play it safe, especially with the Yankees off Thursday.

"With the off day [Thursday] and having a lot of guys down it is probably best to try and grab a couple of days here while we can," Boone said, according to the New York Post's George A. King III. "Just trying to be proactive. I want to make sure we are being smart about this and do all we can to keep him healthy. Making sure this doesn't become an issue."

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez needed 92 at-bats in 21 games last season to hit six home runs.

He needed 60 fewer at-bats this season.

Sanchez hit three home runs in Sunday's 15-3 win over the Orioles to move into a tie with the Dodgers' Cody Bellinger for the MLB lead and take sole possession of the American League lead.

Injured Yankees ace Luis Severino, who is progressing in a deliberate way as he works his way back from rotator cuff inflammation, is still not ready to throw from the mound, manager Aaron Boone said Sunday, according to The Athletic's Lindsey Adler.

Adler noted that the Yankees will let Severino decide when he's ready to progress to throwing from the mound. 

Boone said earlier this month that he is optimistic Severino will take the next step soon, with that step being graduating from long-tossing to the next phase of rehab. Severino took his first big step toward a return on March 20, when he threw on flat ground...

The Yankees, desperate for depth, signed utility infielder Cliff Pennington to a minor-league deal on Thursday, the team announced on Friday. 

Pennington, 34, spent a full Spring Training with the Oakland A's but was cut after they opened the season in Tokyo.

The 11-year veteran is primarily a shortstop but can play second and third base, too, and also has some experience in the outfield. He played just 16 games last year with the Cincinnati Reds.

Having played the rebuilding Orioles and Tigers to start the season, the Yankees might have believed to be much better than 3-4 at the moment. Injuries are part of the issue (some of which should have been expected), but performance has not lived up to expectations in some cases.

There are 155 games left in the season, but it's difficult to avoid wondering if the current feeling about the club would be different had they made some different decisions this offseason, including...

A stronger pursuit of Patrick Corbin

As the week dragged on and the carnage mounted, it was easy to look around the field during a Yankees game and lament all the key players who were missing:

Giancarlo Stanton. Aaron Hicks. Miguel Andujar. Luis Severino. Dellin Betances. Not to mention the OG injured Yankee of 2019, Didi Gregorius.

Those stars are missed terribly, and the loss of Troy Tulowitzki so early in his comeback doesn't help, either. But it's also easy to forget that several highly talented players remain on the field and must now step up to save the Yankees season. Last year's rookie sensation Gleyber Torres is not least among them.

New York Yankees placed Giancarlo Stanton and Miguel Andujar both on the IL. Sweeny Murti explains how they can replace those power bats.

Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar could need season-ending shoulder surgery after he suffered a partially torn right labrum, manager Aaron Boone said after Monday's game.

The Yankees placed Andujar on the 10-day injured list on Monday afternoon, hours after the team announced outfielder Giancarlo Stanton would be shut down for at least 10 days with a biceps injury.

Andujar, 24, injured his shoulder diving back into third base. New York recalled Tyler Wade from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take his place on the 25-man roster.

Here's how Clint Frazier can make a difference during this absurd spate of Yankee injuries, a bleak streak that claimed both Giancarlo Stanton and Miguel Andujar on Monday:

Yankees shortstop Troy Tulowitzki said he felt his return to an MLB diamond for a regular-season game was special.

Tulowitzki went 1-for-4 with a double in his first regular-season game since July 2017, more than a year and a half after undergoing double heel surgery, in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

"People doubted me that I'd get back to this point, so it definitely had some extra meaning to get back out there and play," Tulowitzki said, according to the New York Post's Peter Botte. "I liked my chances of what I felt in spring, and I'm just happy to go out there and help us win a game."

The Yankees officially placed outfielder Aaron Hicks, starting pitcher Luis Severino and several others on the injured list to start the season.

New York placed six players on the IL, including Dellin Betances (right shoulder impingement), Jacoby Ellsbury (left hip surgery recovery), shortstop Didi Gregorius (Tommy John surgery recovery) and RHP Ben Heller (Tommy John surgery recovery).

Hicks suffered a lower back injury and has not yet started baseball activities. He has been out since March 2, and manager Aaron Boone said he does not have a definitive timetable for Hicks' return.

Yankees saving up for Judge 00:01:19
The Yankees missed out on a chance to sign Mike Trout, but their recent trend of saving their money could signal an Aaron Judge deal.

Mike Trout and Alex Bregman may have been the latest players to secure long-term extensions on Tuesday, but for Didi Gregorius and Dellin Betances, they will have to wait. 

According to Jon Heyman, the Yankees are "nowhere close" to a deal with either player despite interest in extending both of them earlier this spring, as SNY's Andy Martino reported. 

The two players, who are both eligible for free agency after the season, were thought to be next in line for extensions after the Yankees struck team-friendly deals with Luis Severino and Aaron Hicks at the start of Spring Training.

Since he arrived at Yankees camp in Tampa, Didi Gregorius has been very limited in what he can do as his recovery from Tommy John surgery continues. But manager Aaron Boone gave some very good news regarding the veteran shortstop's progress back to the team on Thursday morning. 

Boone told the Daily News' Kristie Ackert that Gregorius should begin hitting for real as soon as next week. Gregorius has been doing a little with fungo bats, but Boone believes he's ready to pick up a real bat. 

"He's doing some dry swinging," Boone said. "He's already started a little bit with the fungo. Real bat? Probably the first of next week. It's kind of graduation there."

The Yankees didn't seriously pursue Manny Machado or Bryce Harper this offseason, but they will have another opportunity next offseason to throw a boatload of money at free agents -- with lots of high-impact players potentially available after the 2019 season, including some aces. Here are some the Yanks should have their eye on...

SS Xander Bogaerts, will be entering age-27 season in 2020

Bogaerts emerged as one of the best players in baseball in 2018 in his age-25 season, and just happens to play a premium position the Yanks could need to fill in 2020 -- with the potential departure of Didi Gregorius after the 2019 season. The Yanks could look to extend Gregorius, but there's question of how he will fare when he returns from Tommy John surgery -- with a targeted return of July or August. Even if Gregorius returns and plays well, the presence of Bogaerts on the market would be a tantalizing one...

Didi Gregorius is continuing to work his way back into the Yankees' lineup, but it won't be anytime soon.

After the shortstop underwent Tommy John surgery on Oct. 17, the Yankees believed they could get Gregorius back as early as June, but that hope is fading. GM Brian Cashman told SiriusXM radio Wednesday that a June return for Gregorius would be "optimistic," and that a July or August return is more likely...

Even if it was just a spring training game, Yankees shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was pumped to hit a home run against the team that cut him this offseason.

"You guys know the story, you know what happened," Tulowitzki said, according to the New York Post's George A. King III, after going 1-for-2 in Monday's 3-0 Grapefruit League win over Toronto. "No doubt about it, it was extra special."

The 34-year-old Tulowitzki, who missed all of the 2018 season while recovering from double heel surgery, signed a one-year minimum deal with the Yankees this offseason after the Blue Jays cut him even though they are still on the hook for the remaining two years and $38 million on his contract.

Big picture for Hicks' extension 00:00:42
The Yankees signed Aaron Hicks to a 7-year extension, Andy Martino takes a look at what the deal means for the Yankees long term.

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter | All through the offseason, as we tracked Bryce Harper and Manny Machado's free agencies, the Yankees' couldn't have been more clear about their current philosophy. It's just that many in the public and fan base didn't want to believe it.

Now, with Aaron Hicks joining Luis Severino as valued members of the core locked into relatively team-friendly extensions, the Yanks are actively executing the plan that they decided months ago to pursue. After years spent building a team of young, affordable players, Brian Cashman and his staff is betting on that group, rather than on big-ticket free agents.

And they're not done yet. According to major league sources, the Yankees are also interested in finding common ground with Didi Gregorius and Dellin Betances. The team is not close to an agreement with either player, but sees value in them, both in terms of production and clubhouse presence, and will continue to explore agreements...

The Yankees had a wrench thrown into its roster plans for 2019 when Didi Gregorius underwent Tommy John surgery in October. The decisions made to fill the gap remain puzzling (at least for me), including the signing of infielder DJ LeMahieu.

It is not that LeMahieu is a bad player by any means. The 30-year-old is a former batting champion (he hit .348 in 2016 for the Rockies) and one of the best defenders in the game at second base (three Gold Glove awards, including two straight honors). The perplexing aspect of his signing is that he's filling a utility role -- at a hefty price of two years, $24 million -- which won't maximize his potential production as a second baseman.

TAMPA, Fla. -- It was a day of transition for the Yankees at Steinbrenner Field on Saturday, with glimpses of both the past and future -- and questions about whether the Yankees can hold their new core together.

The marquee event was an afternoon news conference in which CC Sabathia announced his plans to retire at the end of the season. Sabathia was a key member of the Yankees' most recent championship team, and a link between the Derek Jeter/Andy Pettitte/Jorge Posada era and the Aaron Judge/Gary Sanchez/Luis Severino group...

The Yankees are comfortable shifting Gleyber Torres to shortstop if immediate plans do not pan out in 2019. But the Yanks should reconsider the move (one that feels almost certain to be required) as a last resort -- not the first response.

Torres enters his sophomore season in the big leagues needing a clearer focus with increased expectations. Despite a very good overall rookie campaign, he did show that he's still a young man learning the game.

The Yankees signed Troy Tulowitzki on a one-year minimum deal this offseason once the Toronto Blue Jays released him, and manager Aaron Boone believes the 34-year-old shortstop can recover from double heel surgery to make a significant impact with New York.

"We feel like he's in a good place and over some of the injuries that really plagued him over the last year and a half, two years,'' Boone said during Wednesday's press conference. "We'll try to be vigilant as far as how his schedule goes and obviously communicating with him. We'll develop a plan that kind of evolves a little bit."

Didi Gregorius has awhile before he can join his teammates again for a game, but he took a big step in the right direction on Monday down in Tampa. 

Gregorius was seen throwing for the first time since he underwent successful Tommy John surgery on Oct. 17. According to NJ.com's Randy Miller, the veteran had "25 tosses" from "60 feet" at the Yankees' minor-league facility, and was also making light throws to first base fielding grounders at short. 

The best result coming from this small workout was Gregorius feeling no pain in his elbow. However, he realizes how long the road ahead of him is...

Didi Gregorius is ready to begin working his way back to the field. 

The Yankees shortstop, who underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow at the end of the 2018 season, was cleared to begin a throwing program, manager Aaron Boone said at the Thurman Munson Dinner at the Grand Hyatt in Midtown on Tuesday. 

"Everything is going well and according to plan," Boone said.

Friday is the deadline for teams to exchange numbers with players who are arbitration-eligible. If a deal is not agreed upon they must schedule a hearing next month in front of a panel of arbitrators to determine that player's salary for the 2019 season. 

Teams that do not reach deals could still negotiate up until the hearing date on a one-year contract or multi-year extension.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives: The Yankees came to an agreement with a Gold Glove infielder Friday afternoon, but it wasn't Manny Machado.

The Yankees appear to have strayed even further away from Machado, agreeing to a two-year, $24 million contract with DJ LeMahieu according to reports and confirmed by SNYtv's Andy Martino.

LeMahieu, 30, is contact hitter who owns a career .298 avereage with a .350 on-base percentage and .406 slugging percentage. LeMahieu does possess home/road splits that favor hitter friendly Coors Field, but his approach at the plate could still translate well in New York.
