The stars, literally and figuratively, have lined up for the Yankees to make a splash this winter.

The burden of heavy league taxes has been removed and a robust free-agent market is before them. The Yankees worked for years to diminish payroll expenditures with an eye toward the 2019 season.

The Yankees officially announced they have promoted left-handed pitchers Justus Sheffield and Domingo German. Clint Frazier was also transferred to the 60-day DL.

Sheffield last pitched on Sept. 2, when he tossed 2 1/3 innings of scoreless relief. The Yankees moved Sheffield to the bullpen at the tail end of the minor league season and he made four consecutive relief appearances. He also appeared in relief on June 27, pitching six innings.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives: Talk of Sheffield's potential promotion began in July and the fact that it took this long is either related to the Yankees' belief that the young lefty was not effective enough to be a factor for the big league club or they mismanaged the chances to determine his potential impact...

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...

There is no hiding the Yankees are banged up, given two of their sluggers -- Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge -- are both out due to injury. Judge said earlier Friday that he still hasn't been able to pick up a bat, and there is going to be discomfort in his fractured right hand for awhile.

As for Sanchez, though, manager Aaron Boone gave some promising news before the Yankees' matchup with the Rangers. He has been in Tampa rehabbing a right groin strain.

"I think he'll probably be on the ground running there this weekend and he'll fly here Sunday night to join us starting Monday," Boone told the YES Network before the game. "And I would say Monday we'll really ramp up as far as the hitting, starting to do catching things, and then the normal conditioning as well. But he's progressing well, feeling good."

In addition to Aaron Judge's fractured right wrist, the Yankees provided updates on several other players who are dealing with injuries.

Outfielder Clint Frazier, who is dealing with migraines and concussion-like symptoms, is traveling to Tampa, Florida, to "get to a point where he's symptom free," manager Aaron Boone said, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey. The team doesn't have a timetable for his return.

Frazier, who was hitting .265 with one RBI in 15 MLB games but .311 with 10 home runs and 21 RBIs in 48 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, left a RailRiders game on July 19 after feeling lightheaded. He said he has been feeling better, according to NJ.com's Brendan Kuty, but the Yankees don't want to take any chances.

There is little doubt the Yankees needed to upgrade their rotation, and the addition of J.A. Happ fit the bill. However, is the rest of the Yankees rotation strong enough to make a charge to catch the Red Sox with 61 games left on the schedule?

Happ is a certain upgrade over current No. 4 starter Sonny Gray, as well as the two pitchers -- Luis Cessa and Domingo German -- the Yankees had been interchanging of late in the No. 5 spot. However, Happ had been in a slump before his most recent start (five innings, one run), pitching to a 9.75 ERA over three starts.

Before the skid, Happ had tossed 97 innings to the tune of a 3.62 ERA with 107 strikeouts and just 27 walks. Happ's production was enough to get him named to the American League All-Star team, and the Yankees hope a chance to pitch in the postseason gets Happ back on track.

The Yankees have seen enough of Domingo German.

After another bad outing on Friday night in the Bronx, the Yankees announced they optioned German back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and announced Luis Cessa will replace him in the rotation. 

German has shown spurts of great pitching, but mostly it has been struggles surrounding the 25-year-old rookie. Before the All-Star break, German threw a dud against the Indians, allowing six earned runs on five hits and four walks over four innings.

It is no secret the Yankees need starting pitching to get a second-half push toward the top of the AL East. For now, though, they will have to try and get good outings from the middle-to-back rotation starters. 

Unfortunately, they didn't get that from one of those back-end arms as Domingo German continued to struggle on Friday against the Mets. 

German threw another dud first inning to start off his outing. After walking Brandon Nimmo to lead off the game, Asdrubal Cabrera laced a double down the right field line to bring Nimmo all the way home for the first run of the game.

Brian Cashman has a problem: While his need for starting pitching is obvious, neither the choices nor the prices are appealing right now.

Not only that, but an alternative plan stalled when the San Diego Padres asked for Miguel Andujar for lefty reliever Brad Hand, according to major league sources. The Yankees said no thanks, and Hand went to Cleveland.

The Mets lost two of three games to the Yankees in their Subway Series in early June at Citi Field. They look for revenge coming out of the All-Star break in the Bronx.

Though the Mets have the second-worst record in the National League and face the Yankees, who have the second-best record in baseball, whoever wins this weekend's series will be the toast of the town, at least for the weekend.

The Mets have finalized their starting rotation for their Subway Series matchup against the Yankees following the All-Star break.

Noah Syndergaard will get the start on Friday in the series opener against Domingo German, while Steven Matz will pitch on Saturday and Jacob deGrom will be on the mound on Sunday in the series finale. Matz will be opposed by Sonny Gray on Saturday and Masahiro Tanaka will pitch for the Yankees in the series finale. 

Syndergaard will make his second start since returning from the disabled list with a strained ligament in his finger, which forced him to miss more than two months of action.

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.

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...

Yankees RHP Domingo German was looking for some redemption in his last two starts for the Bombers. And he did just that in Toronto on Sunday afternoon. 

German went six strong innings allowing just one run in what was a refreshing start to see from the Yankees' young arm. 

It was smooth sailing for German to start the game as he didn't see any trouble through the first three innings. However, the fourth inning was a different story.

Never be satisfied.

The last three times through the rotation for Domingo German have been quite inspiring, while the Yankees also received an eye-opening MLB debut from Jonathan Loaisiga within the last week. Despite the positive feelings and excitement around two more young players, the Yankees should not be dissuaded from pulling the trigger for a rotation improvement as the trade market comes into focus, and the sooner the better.

Yankees RHP Domingo German allowed just one earned run in seven innings in his team's win over the Mariners on Tuesday night.

The only damage came in his first and last innings of the night. The Mariners scored an unearned run in the first after Didi Gregorius committed an error, then Nelson Cruz hit a solo home run in the seventh inning for Seattle's second run.

German issued no walks and struck out nine batters. He now has fanned 28 batters in his last 19 innings on the mound for New York. He threw 96 pitches, 67 of which were strikes.

San Diego Padres reliever Brad Hand would be a perfect fit for the Yankees, lengthening a bullpen that is already dominant as well as helping to cover for a thin rotation. And if he were to become a member of the Houston Astros or Boston Red Sox, the Yanks' path to the World Series would be much more difficult.

But despite all that, signs point to the Yankees acquiring a starter like Cole Hamels or J.A. Happ instead.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman is already on the prowl for a starting pitcher he could add to his playoff-contending team. But, Yankee fans, don't worry. Gleyber Torres won't be part of that deal. 

After his emergence as one of the top rookies in the MLB this season, Torres has backed up his top ranking among Yankee prospects so far this season. It has only made his trade stock rise higher, and Cashman could certainly use him as the featured player in a blockbuster trade. 

But, being that Torres has already established himself a favorite among the Yankee faithful to go along with his superb play, Cashman knows he wouldn't be seeing any friendly encounters on the streets of New York if he sent him packing...

For Domingo German and the Yankees, Thursday night's game against the Rays couldn't have gotten off to a worse start.

German allowed a home run to Matt Duffy on the first pitch of the contest. But, German would settle in for a quality start by giving up three runs on five hits and two walks in six innings with a career-high 10 strikeouts and two walks to earn his first win in a 4-3 victory.

"It feels great," German said through an interpreter, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "It has been a long battle for me to be able to win my first game in the big leagues. It means a lot. Hopefully I can relax a little more after getting the first one and keep battling."

After New York placed RHP Masahiro Tanaka on the disabled list with a hamstring injury, pitching coach Larry Rothschild said prospect Jonathan Loaisiga and journeyman David Hale could be temporary options as replacements in the rotation.

Meanwhile, the Yankees, who entered Sunday averaging the most runs per game in baseball, have MLB-caliber players like Clint Frazier, who has a .301/.385/.551 batting line with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and Brandon Drury, whom the Yankees acquired in the offseason but was demoted to Triple-A after recovering from migraines following the success of rookie third baseman Miguel Andujar, sitting in the minors.

In 2018's iteration of the Subway Series, the mood surrounding each of New York City's teams couldn't be more different. The second-place Yankees are one of the best teams in baseball, with an embarrassment of riches as far as talent. The likes of Brandon DruryRonald Torreyes and Clint Frazier are in the minors; Neil Walker is a luxury infielder for the team. 

The Mets are mired in a tailspin. Since their 11-1 start, they are 16-31, and have been mired in one of the worst offensive funks in the history of the franchise. They have slipped to fourth place in the NL East, 7.5 games back of the Nationals heading into the weekend.
