The Yankees' offseason is off to a rocky start.

As if the Yankees weren't dealing with enough disappointment being eliminated from the postseason Tuesday, the club announced Friday that star shortstop, Didi Gregorius, was set to undergo Tommy John surgery. Gregorius reportedly suffered the injury during the American League Division Series, and an MRI after the loss revealed a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing arm.

Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius will undergo Tommy John surgery after he injured his elbow during the ALDS, but manager Aaron Boone is hopeful Gregorius will be with the team for most of the 2019 season.

Gregorius, according to manager Aaron Boone, felt pain in his throwing elbow on a throw at Fenway Park, and an MRI revealed he had a torn right UCL.

"We're optimistic that he'll be back at some point during the season," Boone said Friday. "I don't want to speculate too much on when. It's obviously different than a pitcher ... so we think there's a real chance he plays the bulk of the season."

Yankees talk Game 4 loss 00:01:04
CC Sabathia, Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez talk about the Yankees loss to the Red Sox in Game 4 of the ALDS.

It was too little, too late for the Yankees. A ninth inning rally gave the Yankees a chance to win the game but Craig Kimbrel righted the ship and got Gleyber Torres to ground out with two runners on to end the game and the Yankees' season. >> Box score


1) The Red Sox bullpen shut down the Yankees until Kimbrel came in and struggled with the strike zone. He allowed two runs on one hit, two walks and a hit batsman but ultimately settled down to finish the job. The final out was decided after a replay review, putting the Red Sox celebration at a momentary halt.

The Yankees took advantage of a favorable matchup and cashed in with a 6-2 win to tie the ALDS at one apiece in Boston Saturday night...

Gardner the grinder

Aaron Hicks is obviously a much more productive player than Brett Gardner in 2018, but Gardner's entry into the lineup Saturday, courtesy of Hicks' hamstring injury, was at least well-timed. For one, Gardner has better career numbers (.269 to .212 batting average) versus starter David Price.

Aaron Boone talks Game 2 victory 00:02:30
Yankees manager Aaron Boone talks about how Brett Gardner, Gary Sanchez, and Masahiro Tanaka contributed to a win in Game 2 of the ALDS.

David Price was knocked out early, Gary Sanchez hit two home runs, and the Yankees bounced back from a series-opening loss to beat the Red Sox on Saturday night, 6-2, in Game 2 of the ALDS. >> Box score


1) David Price hasn't had the edge over the Yankees since coming over to Boston, and that proved true again tonight. He lasted just 1.2 innings after allowing three runs on three hits, including two solo shots from Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez. Price owns a 7.95 ERA in 12 starts against the Yankees this season.

It may not necessarily be a "must-win" game for the Yankees, but they face a pivotal Game 2 matchup with the Red Sox in the ALDS, and will have to do it without a key player in Aaron Hicks.

With manager Aaron Boone watching closely, Hicks participated in a running workout at Fenway Park to see if he was healthy enough to play. But, with Brett Gardner batting ninth and starting in center field tonight, it was clear that Hicks isn't ready to step back on the field.

The veteran outfielder received an MRI earlier Saturday, and to the Yankees' relief, it came back clean. Boone told reporters he can come off the bench tonight if needed, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.

The Yankees' comeback fell short as they lost to the Red Sox, 5-4, in Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday night in Boston...

The game turned on what seemed like a questionable decision

This Red Sox took their lead in the first inning, when the Yankees appeared to decide they would rather have J.A. Happ pitch to J.D. Martinez than Steve Pearce.

Yankees talk Game 1 loss 00:01:02
Aaron Boone, J.A. Happ, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton explain what went wrong in the Yankees Game 1 loss in the ALDS.

The Yankees were knocking on the door, but the Red Sox shut them out in a 5-4 thriller in Game 1 of the ALDS at Fenway Park >> Box score


1) J.A. Happ was entrusted to take care of the Sox to kick off this series, but his stuff just wasn't there. After allowing a single to Andre Benintendi and walking Steve Pearce, J.D. Martinez got the best of a 2-0 fastball and sent it over the Green Monster for a three-run homer. Then, in the bottom of the third, Happ was pulled after allowing runners on the corners to start. Chad Green didn't help allowing both runners across. Overall, Happ allowed five runs on four hits while striking out two and walking one over just two innings and 44 pitches. 

2) The Yankees began chipping away at the Red Sox' bullpen in the sixth inning after Chris Sale came out with two runners on. Luke Voit singled home Brett Gardner, while Didi Gregorius avoided a double play to bring home Giancarlo Stanton. But they missed a huge opportunity with bases loaded when Gleyber Torres struck out to end the inning.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives: On Wednesday night, the Yankees will host the Athletics in the American League Wild Card Game with a trip to the ALDS against Boston on the line. The winner-moves-on affair will be hotly contested between two extremely talented, yet different clubs.

Yankees regulars vs. Athletics regulars

The Yankees come at opposing pitchers with a strong right-handed leaning lineup. They pounded 267 home runs this season, but not a single player hit over 40 alone, and Aaron Judge played in just 111 games. Instead, the Yankees distributed their homers across 19 players, with 12 players reaching double digits (an MLB record). Each of their presumed starting nine managed at least 14 homers. And despite a much higher payroll than the A's, the Yanks maintain a young offensive core, with eight players no older than 28.

The Yankees broke the single-season home run record during their 8-5 win over the Red Sox in Boston on Saturday. >> Box score


1. Gleyber Torres' two-run homer into the Red Sox bullpen in the top of the fourth inning set an MLB record for homers in a season (265). Giancarlo Stanton, who reached 100 RBI, then went deep in the seventh to left to push it to No. 266.

2. Miguel Andujar hit his 45th double to set a Yankee rookie record. Joe DiMaggio had 44 in 1936.

Lance Lynn allowed two runs in six innings, Andrew McCutchen and Austin Romine homered and Dellin Betances worked a hair-raising ninth as the Yankees held off the Mariners, 4-2, on Saturday night in Seattle. >> Box score


What you need to know about Saturday's game

1) Lynn was solid, earning the win after allowing just two runs on three hits and walking no one in six innings. The veteran right-hander struck out two.

2) McCutchen's homer led off the ballgame. It was his second home run as a Yankee and his second in as many days.

3) Romine went deep in the seventh to break a 2-2 tie. With his career-high 10th home run, the catcher become the 10th Yankee to reach double-digit homers this season.

The Yankees activated shortstop Didi Gregorius off the 10-day disabled list prior to Friday's game against the Seattle Mariners, the team announced.

The 28-year-old Gregorius missed 16 games dating back to mid-August after he suffered a bruised heel on a collision while running to first base on Aug. 19 against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Yankees went 9-7 in Gregorius' absence, having Gleyber Torres fill in occasionally at shortstop and acquiring Adeiny Hechavarria to play shortstop as well.

Key questions for the Yankees 00:04:34
The BNNY crew tackles some burning questions for the Yankees: who wins Rookie of the Year, who should close and more.

Gleyber Torres hit a two-run homer, Masahiro Tanaka limited the Tigers to just one run, and the Yankees held on for a 2-1 victory on Saturday. >> Box score


1) The Yankees only had two hits in the entire game, but made the most of one of them in the fifth inning when Torres put the Yankees in front with one swing. His two-run homer put the Yankees on the board and provided the only offense of the day for the Yankees.

The Yankees didn't blow this 7-5 lead Friday night, as their late rally ended up in a win over the Tigers. >> Box score


1) The Yankees were down 5-4 heading into the eighth, but had a bases loaded opportunity with two outs. Gleyber Torres came through and made it 6-5 with a two RBI single to left. But that wasn't all New York could get. Austin Romine added some insurance with an infield single up the middle that scored Luke Voit

The good news one of Yankees SS Gleyber Torres' close calls on Wednesday night in the Bronx didn't result in an injury. The bad news is the other killed a rally.

In the top of the seventh, Yolmer Sanchez tried stealing second base, but Austin Romine put a beautiful throw on the bag and Torres tagged him out. However, Torres immediately grabbed his glove hand in pain as Sanchez' metal spikes caught him the wrong way.

Luckily, Torres said he was perfectly fine...

Yankees fall to White Sox 00:04:12
The BNNY panel discusses Masahiro Tanaka's start in the Yankees' loss to the White Sox on Monday night.

The Yankees' four-game winning streak ended with a 6-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Monday at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score


1) Masahiro Tanaka (9-5) allowed four runs and 10 hits in seven innings, escaping a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the fourth inning but giving up three runs in the sixth that turned a 2-0 Yankees lead into a 3-2 deficit.

2) Gleyber Torres hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning that broke a scoreless tie, but the rest of the Yankees combined to go 2-for-27.

Voit's power propels Yankees 00:03:38

Gleyber Torres tied the game in the eighth and Neil Walker put New York in front for good in extra innings to lead the Yankees to a 7-5 win over the Orioles on Friday night. >> Box score 


1) Chris Davis hit a two-run single against CC Sabathia in the first inning, but the veteran left-hander recovered to pitch five scoreless innings thereafter. He finished the night with eight strikeouts. 

2) Voit hit his first home run in the fourth inning, a two-run shot, and added another two-run blast in the 10th after Neil Walker's solo home run. Walker and Voit each finished with three hits on the night, while Miguel Andujar went 2-for-5. Giancarlo Stanton went 0-for-2 but walked three times.

3) David Robertson allowed two unearned runs, while Dellin Betances and Chad Green each pitched scoreless innings. Zach Britton allowed a run in the 10th inning but went on to earn the save.

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.

The Yankees normally do much better when 2B Gleyber Torres is in the lineup. But the rookie hasn't shown that himself since coming off the DL. 

Torres was out for about three weeks with a right groin strain, and since his return on July 25, he has been mired in a pretty bad slump. 

How bad? Over 18 games since his return, Torres is 10-for-65 (.154) with a .308 slugging percentage and .263 on-base percentage. He also has three homers and 10 RBI over that span.

Lynn's first start for the Yanks 00:03:26
The Baseball Night in New York panel discusses Lance Lynn's first start as a Yankee, dealing 7 1/3 scoreless innings and securing the win.

Gleyber Torres and Neil Walker both homered while Lance Lynn took a shutout into the eighth inning as the Yankees snapped a five-game losing streak with a 7-0 win against the Chicago White Sox on Monday at Guaranteed Rate Field. >> Box score


1) Torres and Walker both had two htis and two RBIs. Torres hit a solo homer off Thyago Vieira in the eighth inning that gave the Yankees a 5-0 lead, and Walker added a two-run homer later in the inning. 

2) Making his first start with the Yankees after pitching 4 1/3 innings of relief last Wednesday, Lynn (8-8) allowed two hits in 7 1/3 scoreless innings, retiring 19 batters in a row between Daniel Palka's first-inning infield single and Nicky Delmonico's single to right field in the eighth.

Yankees missing Judge, Sanchez 00:04:59
The BNNY panel discusses the New York Yankees' offensive ineptitude with sluggers Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez missing from the lineup.

Aroldis Chapman blew a 4-1 lead in the ninth inning and Jonathan Holder allowed a walk-off single to Andrew Benintendi in the 10th inning as the Yankees' losing streak reached five games with a 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday at Fenway Park. >> Box score


1) Holder (1-3) allowed a two-out single to Sandy Leon in the 10th inning and then threw a wild pitch to move him to second. After intentionally walking Mookie Betts, Benintendi singled up the middle to drive in pinch runner Tony Renda for their 28th win in their last 35 games.

2) Chapman allowed three runs (two earned) on one hit, three walks and one error in the bottom of the ninth to snap a stretch of 22 straight saves converted. After walking the bases loaded, he allowed a two-run single to J.D. Martinez that turned a 4-1 lead into a one-run advantage. Chapman then got Xander Bogaerts to ground to third, but Miguel Andujar's throw fell short of Greg Bird's stretched glove and allowed Betts to score the tying run.

3) The Yankees, who scored all four of their runs in the seventh inning, have lost five games in a row for the first time since they lost seven straight from June 13-20 last season. They fell to 9 1/2 games back of first place.

1) It's the same story over and over again with Gray. After tossing a great outing in his last start, he took the Yankee Stadium mound on Wednesday and threw a dud. He allowed seven runs on eight hits over 2.2 innings against an Orioles offense he dominated just a few weeks back. As fans booed him off the mound, you got to wonder what the Yankees are thinking of doing with Gray down the road.

The Yankees' start to the second half hasn't been so smooth. But then again neither was their last few games into the All-Star break. 

Though there are various reasons why this is the case, one of them is the absence of rookie Gleyber Torres. The second baseman has been sidelined with a right hip issue since July 5, and in turn, the Yankees have gone 7-7 over that span. 

But, rest assured, Torres could be back in the Yankees' lineup on Wednesday as he approaches the final step in his rehab process. The 21-year-old will DH for the Class-A Tampa Tarpons on Tuesday, with the Yankees wanting to make sure that hip doesn't bother him in back-to-back games.

A tentative return date for Yankees 2B Gleyber Torres has been set: Wednesday against the Rays.

Torres is slated to play in a rehab game in Tampa on Saturday with the hopes of returning on Wednesday, according to Aaron Boone, via The Athletic's Lindsey Adler.

Torres suffered a hip strain on July 4, and has been out of the lineup since. He recently said he feels ready to play right now, but the Yankees want to be 100 percent sure he is before sending him back on the field.

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...

Former Yankees great Bernie Williams played on New York's best team -- and arguably one of the best teams to play the game -- in 1998. He has a few championship rings from his 1990s playing days to show for it too.

But, when asked if this year's Yankee team deserves comparison to his squad, Bernie couldn't agree more. 

"It's very exciting to watch," he told Newsday's Sal Cacciatore at the Double-A All-Star Game in Trenton, NJ on Wednesday night. Williams played the National Anthem with his guitar before the game kicked off.

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 outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is on the final vote for the American League All-Star Game roster.

Stanton, Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi, Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons, Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario and Mariners shortstop Jean Segura are under consideration for the 32nd roster spot.

Stanton, in his first year as a Yankee, has hit .267 with 21 home runs and 51 RBIs in 86 games. Though he won the Home Run Derby in 2016 and competed in it last year, he will not compete in it this season even if he makes the All-Star Game.

Outfielder Aaron Judge is among four Yankees who were named to the All-Star Game on Sunday.

Judge, whose 25 home runs have him in a tie for second for the major-league lead, was voted into his second straight All-Star Game and will start alongside the Angels' Mike Trout and Boston's Mookie Betts for the American League by finishing among the top three vote-getters among AL outfielders.

Rookie second baseman Gleyber Torres is the only other Yankees position player to make the roster, while starting pitcher Luis Severino and reliever Aroldis Chapman were also selected.

The Yankees will be without rookie sensation Gleyber Torres for at least 10 days as the 21-year-old recuperates from a hip injury. The void instantly creates a crossroads for the club where it concerns who should gain playing time as a result.

For the Yankees, a trial period of sorts develops where they can choose to test the value of Neil Walker or Brandon Drury. Walker has been used in a very limited part-time role and Drury is finally back with the big league club after battling through migraine and blurred vision issues, which effectively lost him the starting job at third base.

When measuring overall value, Walker and his lousy .518 OPS (187 plate appearances) is completely expendable with multiple middle infield options available in the farm system including Ronald Torreyes, who could be the roster addition to replace Torres. The Yankees need to stop prioritizing Walker's playing time.

Drury, a controllable asset for the next three seasons, is significantly more useful to the Yankees whether as part of the organization going forward or as a player to use as a trade piece this summer. As such, Drury would be my primary choice to play second base while Torres recuperates.

The Yankees have placed Gleyber Torres on the 10-day disabled list with a right hip strain.

The infielder was removed from Wednesday's game against the Braves after striking out in the bottom of the fourth inning. A subsequent MRI revealed the strain.

The Yankees need starting pitching, and owner Hal Steinbrenner has made that clear recently. But just how far will he go to push his team to the top of the contenders list in October?

Staying under the $197 million luxury tax threshold has been the Yankees' mission this season, and it has worked. And Steinbrenner added that there is some spending money if the Yankees need to use it on an asset by the trade deadline. 

"I would have to see where we are, who the person is, how badly that position needs help, so to speak, but I will say,d we have a considerable amount of money to spend and I'm not adverse to spending it," Steinbrenner told YES Network's Meredith Marakovits. "A considerable amount even staying under (the threshold). We've got some options there, flexibility."

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.

When players of any sport travel on the road, they hear tons of chants from fans designed to get them off their game. They can be harsh, vile, and downright degrading. 

And what Red Sox LHP David Price heard from Yankees fans on Sunday night during his dreadful start was the worst of them all. 

Price had arguably his worst start of his career as the Yankees shelled him for eight runs on nine hits including five homers over 3.1 innings. And while Yankees fans enjoyed their team hitting one of the best left-handed pitchers in the game like batting practice, they added insult to injury by chanting, "Who's your daddy," at Price before his early exit.

After a solid month at the plate, Yankees 3B Miguel Andujar was named the AL Rookie of the Month in June. 

Andujar led all rookies in home runs (7) and extra-base hits (13) while also being tied for first in RBI (20) over 25 games in June. He hit .264 over the month as well.

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.

Things to know about Sunday's game

2) Aaron Judge went 3-for-4 with a solo homer in the first inning while Gleyber Torres hit a three-run shot later in the inning as New York jumped out to a 4-0 lead. Kyle Higashioka's first MLB hit was a solo home run down the left-field line in the fourth inning as the Yankees set a franchise record for home runs hit as a team before the All-Star break.

Yankees phenom Gleyber Torres is set to knock out another career-first on Saturday night: batting cleanup.

Torres will hit fourth against Chris Sale and the Red Sox, sandwiched between Giancarlo Stanton and Didi Gregorius. 

The 21-year-old is hitting .289/.344/.549 with 14 HR and 39 RBI this season. Torres is the youngest Yankee to start in the cleanup spot since Micky Mantle in 1953, via Moses Massena.

Yankees on big win over Red Sox 00:01:38
Yankees manager Aaron Boone and his players discuss CC Sabathia's strong seven innings in the club's big 8-1 win over the Red Sox on Friday.

The Yankees made a statement in the series opener against the Red Sox, as their potent offense smashed four homers and plated eight runs to take the first of three games in the Bronx. >> Box score

Things to know about Tuesday's game

1) The Yankees only collected four hits on the night, with Aaron Hicks accounting for two of them. And what was even worse was the fact that only one Yankees base runner reached second base on the night. Zach Eflin, who has done tremendously better in June, was lights out as he kept the Yankees off balance all night. Seranthony Dominguez closed out the game with a six-out save.
