The Yankees saw another big blow in the injury department on Saturday, when slugger Aaron Judge went down with a left oblique strain. Judge was grimacing in pain, holding his left side after a swing during the win against the Royals. 

It is unclear how long the Yankees will be losing Judge, as he went to the hospital today to receive an MRI to check on the severity of the injury. But there is no doubt the big man will see a stint on the Injured List, a place where multiple key cogs of the Bombers has landed so far this season. 

Judge will join the likes of Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton as injured outfield pieces. Hicks and Stanton are progressing in their rehab nicely, but they are not expected to join the team any time soon. That leaves only Clint Frazier, Brett Gardner, and Mike Tauchman as the only healthy outfielders on the Yanks.

An All-Star collection of Yankees sit on the club's injured list, which has been one of the main culprits to their 8-10 start to the season. There are six regulars that have already missed significant time in 2019, but who is missed the most?

How does Frazier fit? 00:01:22
SNY's Sweeny Murti discusses Clint Frazier and Brett Gardner, and how they fit the roster once Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton return.

For the moment, Clint Frazier is providing exactly what the Yankees need given the number of key players on the injured list. 

The 24-year-old outfielder, who is not far removed from being considered one of the best prospects in baseball, is healthy after dealing with concussion issues last season and is displaying the "legendary" bat speed GM Brian Cashman has previously praised Frazier for. 

In 13 games entering Thursday, Frazier was slashing .333/.347/.622 with four homers and 12 RBI; he also had 11 strikeouts against two walks.

This comes as Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Hicks are both nursing injuries, so the Yanks have been able to plug Frazier in at either DH or left field with Brett Gardner occupying center, Mike Tauchman seeing some time in left, and of course, Aaron Judge in right field.

Yankees INF Miguel Andujar continues to work his way back toward the team, with the hope he doesn't need surgery to repair the small tear in his labrum. If surgery isn't needed, manager Aaron Boone noted Thursday that the team is considering how to deploy him so he doesn't suffer a setback. 

It was a week ago that SNY's Andy Martino suggested the Yankees use Andujar as primarily a DH, and even at first base in certain situations. Well, that's exactly what the Yankees are discussing right now, according to Boone.

Hitting hasn't been as much an issue as throwing for Andujar during this rehab process, which is why DH would make the most sense. The Yankees, though, have multiple hitters that can fill that role -- some of which are on the IL with Andujar. Giancarlo Stanton is one player that comes to mind, and he's reportedly close to coming back from his biceps strain as well.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV  Twitter | About Me | ArchivesThe Yankees, behind stellar pitching and plenty of offense, beat the Red Sox, 8-0, at Yankee Stadium. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game…

1 ) James Paxton was absolutely electric tonight. It was the first time he went to the mound in pinstripes, and just unleashed on the opponent. Paxton surely wasn't tipping any pitches, throwing 110 on the night, 80 of which were four-seam fastballs. Those fastballs averaged 97 mph with the fastest topping out at 99.2 mph. Paxton's final line - 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 12 K - could not have come at a better time for the Yankees. The Yanks traded for Paxton with this kind of a performance in mind, and hopefully for New York he builds on it.

While Greg Bird became the latest member to join the Yankees' already crowded Injured List on Tuesday, manager Aaron Boone addressed the other players and their progress ahead of tonight's contest with the Red Sox. 

Among the 12 members (including Bird), Miguel Andujar's status (shoulder) is still in question. Boone told reporters that he continues his program, which saw an increase in throwing as well as his normal hitting. While Andujar seems to be responding well to the treatment -- he hasn't had a setback -- it is still too early to make the determination for surgery to repair the shoulder tear or not. 

Other than Andujar, Aaron Hicks and Troy Tulowitzki appear to be progressing nicely. Hicks hit off a tee and soft toss as well as throwing and running before the game. He should be taking part in batting practice on Wednesday or Thursday.

The injury bug has bitten the Yankees once again. 

The team placed Greg Bird on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a left plantar fascia tear. The Yankees called up Mike Ford from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Bird's roster spot. 

Bird, who broke camp with the team after a strong Spring Training, had not been making the most of his opportunity in the big leagues. Following a solo homer on Opening Day, which accounted for his lone RBI through 10 games and 35 at-bats, Bird managed five more hits -- all singles.

As the Yankees deal with an injured list as long as a CVS receipt, any shred of good news is welcome.

So there is a glimmer of optimism regarding Giancarlo Stanton, who went on the injured list on April 1 with a biceps strain. After hitting off a tee and soft toss on Saturday for the second time, Stanton said, "I think I'm on track."

"Didn't take 100 percent swings, but I took good progress swings," Stanton said Saturday, according to the Daily News.

Injured Yankees reliever Dellin Betances (shoulder impingement) isn't expected to return to the team until at least six or seven weeks from now, but he felt relieved on Saturday after receiving a cortisone shot. 

"There's relief just because there's nothing structurally wrong," Betances said, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. "I know with this shot that in three weeks, with rest, I know everything will be right and I'm excited to help the team out and finish this season."

Seven weeks from this point brings us to the early part of June, when the Yankees hope to have many of their other walking wounded back, including Aaron Hicks, Giancarlo Stanton, Gary Sanchez, and Troy Tulowitzki. Miguel Andujar could also be back before then if he is able to avoid season-ending surgery

Miguel Andujar swung a bat on Friday for the first time since doctors diagnosed him with a torn labrum earlier this month, and declared himself a fully healthy hitter. The problem with his injured shoulder is that it prevents him from making the throw from third to first base.

Here's a suggestion for the terribly depleted Yankees: Throw a band-aid on this makeshift lineup, and use Andujar as a DH or first baseman in the short term in order to get his bat back.

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?

Pete Alonso seems like he's making history every day.

This time he did it by recording the hardest-hit homer ever by a Met during Thursday's 6-3 win over the Braves. His two-run blast in the seventh inning, which traveled 454 feet, had an exit velocity of 118.3 miles per hour, according to MLB Statcast.

That homer is tied for the 9th-hardest ever recorded by Statcast, and the only two players who have hit harder home runs per Statcast are the Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge.

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...

Coming into the new year, Yankees C Gary Sanchez has the goal of proving last season was an enigma. So far, things are trending in the right direction for The Kraken. 

Over the first seven games of the season, Sanchez has had his woes like the rest of these Yankees. He already has four throwing errors from behind the plate -- an area of his defensive game that was never a question. But he also made a nice snap throw down to first on Thursday to pick off the over-eager Rio Ruiz after a nice block on a slider. 

Though the glove needs improvement, Yankees fans are more concerned abou Sanchez' showing more production in the batter's box this season. In 2018, he hit a ghastly .186/.291/.406 with 18 homers and 53 RBI in 89 games as he couldn't find his groove all season.

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.

With his two home runs sparking a Yankees rally in Thursday's 8-4 win over the OriolesGleyber Torres joined Yankees lore.

Writes ESPN's Coley Harvey, Torres became the youngest player in franchise history to go 4-for-4 or better since Derek Jeter, and became the fourth-youngest player to have four hits and four RBIs in a game since 1920. The only Yankees who were younger: Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and Lou Gehrig.

"Gleyber Day. It was impressive," outfielder Aaron Judge said, according to Harvey. "He came up big in certain situations where we needed someone to come up with a big hit for us. He was the catalyst of this win for us."

Injury bug bites again 00:01:13
Yankees stuck out 18 times today against the Tigers, a new team record. All the injuries definitely aren't helping the situation on offense.

We'd say the Yankees limped out of the Stadium Wednesday evening after their latest sluggish loss, but an injury joke probably hits too close to home for a club that's playing both poorly and losing players seemingly daily.

Troy Tulowitzki is the latest casualty. He left the Yankees' 2-1 loss to the lowly Tigers in the second inning, nursing a Grade 1 left calf strain. Aaron Boone said he didn't have all the details on Tulo's condition, but reckoned the shortstop was heading for the Injured List.

The length of Giancarlo Stanton's absence from the Yankees' lineup became clearer Tuesday. 

According to Jon Heyman, the Yankees hope Stanton will be back in three weeks. The team placed him on the 10-day injured list Monday with a Grade 1 left biceps strain.

Stanton suffered the injury Sunday against the Orioles during his third at-bat of the rain-delayed game, he said.

Yankees hit with injury bug 00:01:11
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.

After the Yankees called up Clint Frazier on Monday as they put Giancarlo Stanton on the 10-day injured list with a biceps strain, manager Aaron Boone says Frazier will be getting plenty of playing time, although the 24-year-old outfielder isn't starting Monday against the Tigers after arriving from Scranton.

"He'll play a lot," Boone said. "Obviously not in there tonight, but I plan on him playing quite a bit. He'll get in there, and kind of the way we're set up right now with our rotation of guys, he'll certainly I think play a lot."

Major League Baseball's schedule makers threw the Yankees a bone for opening weekend of the 2019 season, but the team essentially choked on it.

The Yankees are among a quartet of American League teams heavily favored to gain a spot in the 2019 postseason and New York's roster is strong enough win the World Series. The Baltimore Orioles are in the very beginning stages of a full-blown rebuild, fresh off a 115-loss season. Yet, it was the Orioles that came out of New York with two wins in the three-game series.

An interesting outcome beyond the scoreboard results, which have the standings turned upside down, are the somewhat diverging messages coming from the Yankees' best player and its manager.

First, let's state the obvious: You can't drop a series to the 2019 Orioles. Throw away all your cliches about how it's a long season with many ups and downs, and any major league team can beat another on any given day, blah blah blah.

Those justifications don't apply here because the Orioles are truly not a major league team. Last year, they lost 115 games, and that was with contributions from Manny Machado, Zack Britton and Adam Jones. All of those players are gone, as is iconic manager Buck Showalter.

The Yankees' rough start to the season continued on Monday when the team announced that Giancarlo Stanton was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left biceps strain. 

Replacing Stanton will be Clint Frazier, who was recalled from Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre. 

Stanton was 2-for-8 with seven walks and four strikeouts in the Yankees' first series against the Orioles, in which they lost two of three games.

Just two games into the season, Aaron Judge thinks the Yankees need to have a sense of urgency.

After a loss to the lowly Orioles on Saturday in the second game of the season, Judge said the club needs to think like it did during the 2017 MLB playoffs when they trailed in the ALDS and ALCS.

"We've gotta have that mindset that our backs are against the wall, every single game," Judge told reporters after the Yankees' 5-3 loss to Baltimore. "In the playoffs, especially in '17, going down to Cleveland and Houston, our backs were against the wall and we came out and played our butts off. That's got to be our mindset. Our backs are against the wall. You can't take anybody lightly and we gotta capitalize on situations when they come up."

If you're looking for Opening Day omens, how's this: At the same time Luke Voit smashed a ball into Monument Park to show that, perhaps, his big splash last year was no fluke, Mariano Rivera was sitting with reporters, recapping his ceremonial first pitch and saying how it was about time for the Yankees to win another championship.

Maybe that was nothing more than a cute juxtaposition, well-timed for Opening Day. But the way the Yanks handled the rest of Thursday afternoon, an easy 7-2 victory over the woeful Orioles, certainly trumpets the idea that they might be destined for big things this season.

As the new season rolls around, Yankees legend Tino Martinez will find himself at yet another World Series reunion. It was 20 years ago the Yankees swept the Braves to capture the third championship of the four they collected in five years, as the dynasty was in full form.

Martinez, along with his former teammates, had a reunion last season for their '98 title. And as one would expect, they never get old...

Difference makers for Yankees 00:01:05
New York Yankees fell short of their World Series hopes in 2018. Sweeny Murti believe these 3 players will be difference makers in 2019.

The Yankees are opening up their 2019 regular season with high expectations. A "World Series or bust" mindset surrounds this team, and to make it come true, SNY's Sweeny Murti has three players who will make all the difference. 

As one would expect, the Yankees' best player in Aaron Judge will play a major factor in the team's success. Judge looked great down in Tampa, and he brings his hot bat up north to the Bronx to hopefully start the new year on the right foot. 

So who does Murti have second and third among his difference makers...

It's Year 2 for Giancarlo Stanton in pinstripes, and the theme thus far has been comfortability for the 6-foot-6 slugger. Stanton had an up-and-down 2018 season that still saw 38 round-trippers and 100 RBI fall on his stat sheet. 

Stanton's production didn't make it a disappointing season, but it was his .229 average at Yankee Stadium and 5-for-21 performance in his first trip to the postseason that made Yankees fans shake their heads. 

But that was last year, and Stanton has consistently alluded to it as one giant learning experience coming from Miami to New York. He reiterated that point on Wednesday after his final tune-up workout before Opening Day on Thursday.

While the Yankees did not splurge on stars Manny Machado or Bryce Harper as many expected, the club completed a big trade and spread out its wealth for roster additions in free agency in an effort to supplement its incredibly talented young core.

Let's take a look at the 2019 Yankees, a team that sports an Opening Day payroll of approximately $204 million, according to Cot's Baseball Contracts ($226 million-plus for competitive balance tax purposes), as they embark on their yearly quest for a World Series title.

The Yankees are exactly one week away from opening their 2019 season against the Orioles in the Bronx, and the battles to make the 25-man roster when camp breaks are coming down to the wire. Injuries continue to plague this squad, with Greg Bird the latest to receive medical attention after he was hit by a pitch in the elbow. Luckily, that isn't expected to be a big deal, but other Yankees may not be so lucky when the season kicks off.

Here's how we see things shaking out in our 25-man Roster Prediction 3.0...

Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge will earn $684,300 this season.

The Home Run Derby champion, based on the new deal the MLB and MLB Players Association reached, will receive $1 million.

Yet Judge, the 2017 champion who didn't want to defend his crown in 2018, doesn't think the money means he'll compete in it again.

The Yankees will be without Aaron Hicks for at least the opening series of the regular season due to back stiffness that has required two cortisone shots. With back issues, reducing the pain while getting up to game speed is difficult and can often linger well beyond the original diagnosis.

The Yankees will have to make a decision on who will take the newly vacant roster spot and they have two choices: Clint Frazier or Tyler Wade.

Which player makes the most sense?

Bryce Harper's late spring with the Phillies continued on Wednesday against the Yankees, and after an 0-for-2 performance, he clarified that the team never reached out to him during his free agency tour. 

Before Harper even hit free agency, it was expected the Yankees would be at the top of the heap to land the prolific star. However, they made a trade with the Marlins last offseason to land NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton, which all but shut the door on that notion. 

Growing up a Yankees fan or not, Harper admitted GM Brian Cashman never called him.

The Yankees had a chance to walk it off in the bottom of the ninth, but instead their spring game against the Phillies ended in a 5-5 tie on Wednesday night in Tampa. >> Box Score

Five things to know about Wednesday's game...

1) Giancarlo Stanton enjoyed another solid night at the dish, going 2-for-3 with a solo homer for an RBI and run scored. His slugging partner in Aaron Judge didn't though, as he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Entering Spring Training last season, all eyes were peered on Giancarlo Stanton -- the reigning National League MVP -- to see if he could handle the pressure of wearing the pinstripes. The year was full of ups and downs, with Stanton most notably struggling to hit well at Yankee Stadium.

But, with a full Yankees season under his belt, this Spring Training vibe for Stanton is different. It's more calm. Tranquil. And it's because Stanton now realizes what it takes to play on the Big Apple.

"I have a better idea of how to play left field with half a year playing there under my belt," Stanton told The Post's Dan Martin. "Everything is much more comfortable after a season in New York. It helps me, for sure."

When both Aaron Judge and Brett Gardner recently predicted this year's Yankees would break the big-league mark for team home runs set by last year's Yanks, it got us thinking:

Where do these record homer-bashing clubs end up in October? Does owning that prestigious standard all but guarantee a parade that season?
