The Yankees placed first baseman Luke Voit on the 10-day injured list prior to the All-Star break and he won't be there much longer, according to manager Aaron Boone.

Voit was injured (abdomen) running out a double against the Boston Red Sox during the team's London series earlier this month. Speaking to WFAN's Mike Francesa on Thursday, Boone said Voit will be returning by Monday at the latest.

"Voit will be sometime in the next couple of days. Probably won't be activated tomorrow. Might have him do one rehab game. We'll talk through that," Boone said. "He'll likely be back at some point this weekend or certainly first of next week."

Life is good for a baseball team that is 57-31, the best record in the American League. But while the Yankees might be favorites to go back to the World Series for the first time in a decade, that doesn't mean the second half of the regular season is just about lining up the playoff rotation.

Yes, even juggernauts have potential trouble areas and question marks. With that in mind, we offer five things to watch while the Yanks try to hold their sizable 6.5-game lead in the AL East over the season's final two and a half months.

It seems hard to believe now, with the Yankees on a pace to win 105 games, that they lost series to the Orioles, Tigers, and White Sox in getting off to a 6-9 start amidst fears that injuries might wreck their season before Memorial Day.

Since then they've gone a mere 51-22 to establish themselves as the best team in the American League, getting unexpected contributions from the Urshelas, Tauchmans and Maybins of the baseball world that have made this more of a feel-good season than seemed possible with such huge expectations.

As such, any midterm review has to start with GM Brian Cashman, who created all this depth and versatility, as well as the most formidable bullpen in baseball, partly by spreading the Yankee money around on the likes of D.J. Lemahieu, Adam Ottavino, Zack Britton and others, rather than going all-in on Bryce Harper or Manny Machado.

The frustration over the Yankees' injuries this season is beginning to mount for Brian Cashman, particularly with ace Luis Severino. 

The Yankees GM provided more updates on Sunday on the 25-year-old right-hander, who was shut down again on Saturday after an MRI discovered his lat strain was only 90 percent healed. 

"Clearly, in hindsight, he never should have started his throwing program," Cashman said. "He passed all his physical testing. He was strong. They made a determination not to do an MRI. And normally they don't do an MRI to follow up after the down period of time. They test him out."

Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge may well be on their way back to the Yankees lineup, but it is the Bombers' starting pitching that is in greater need of a jolt. 

CC Sabathia lasted just 4.2 innings in Friday night's 10-2 loss to the White Sox, allowing six runs -- five earned -- on 10 hits and three walks raising his ERA to 4.42 on the season. Sabathia is 0-3 with a 6.89 ERA with hitters batting .375 against him in his last three starts. 

The Yankees have now lost seven of their last 10 and have fallen out of first place in the AL East but manager Aaron Boone is not ready to sound the alarm bells just yet on his starting rotation.

The Yankees just can't catch a break when it comes to their starting rotation. 

Domingo German, who was surprisingly one of the best rotation arms, hit the IL with a hip flexor strain last week. He was the latest starter to hit the list that has had the likes of James Paxton and CC Sabathia on it. Luis Severino has been a mainstay as well, suffering a lat strain that moved him to the 60-day IL. 

The Yankees know they need to add help to makeup for these losses, and potential ones down the road. Many believed Dallas Keuchel would choose to wear pinstripes this season, but the Braves beat out their bid in the end.

SNY baseball analyst Jim Duquette on Marcus Stroman as a desirable trade target to bolster the Yankees rotation

So Dallas Keuchel ended up in Atlanta instead of the Bronx. It's not the end of the (pitching) world for the Yankees. 
 
If Brian Cashman decides his club needs rotation help, there ought to be plenty available as the MLB calendar flips from the amateur draft to the trading season. 
 
How's this for choices? According to scouts and executives, the following pitchers are already on the market: Madison Bumgarner, Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman. Teams such as Kansas City and Seattle are putting out the word within the industry that they'll listen to offers on many of the players on their rosters, which could add potential inventory.

The Yankees are reportedly a frontrunner for free agent left-hander Dallas Keuchel, according to SNY's Andy Martino. The report doesn't necessarily come as a surprise, as New York has long had a clear need.

Staff ace Luis Severino is out for the foreseeable future, Domingo German will eventually face an innings limit, and the durability of James Paxton and CC Sabathia will be monitored.

If the team does sign the 31-year-old after the amatuer draft, they won't need to give up a compensatory pick. This is an important factor of potentially signing Keuchel, as any team interested will likely be more willing to add a large one-year deal, the kind he's been seeking...

The Yankees, one of the hottest teams in baseball, will host the archrival Red Sox for four games beginning Thursday evening in the Bronx.

Here's a high-level preview of the series.

The Yankees might sign Dallas Keuchel next week, and that would not preclude them from pivoting toward a trade for a high-end starting pitcher, according to major league sources.

As SNY has reported previously, the Yanks are targeting rotation help at the trade deadline above all other needs. With Domingo German facing possible innings restrictions, Luis Severino out for a long time, and CC Sabathia and James Paxton in various states of knee pain (Paxton returns Wednesday), the rotation is the team's clearest need.

The Yanks are not specifically viewing Keuchel as an alternative to sacrificing trade chips for a Marcus Stroman, Trevor Bauer or Zack Wheeler, all of whom would likely interest them. Teams are not yet talking in earnest about these trades, and typically wait until after the draft to do so.

Mark your calendars or set up a smartphone alert, baseball fans - the first leg of the Subway Series is speeding toward us.

But before the Yankees and Mets meet for the first time this season June 10-11 in the Bronx, both clubs have work to do, particularly the Mets. Both have to get healthier, too, because we want to watch the likes of Didi Gregorius and Jeff McNeil when the teams meet.

That way, you can have a fuller picture of your favorite team when you begin smack-talking relatives from Brooklyn to Bergen County to Battery Park.

With the MLB Draft less than a week away, it would be stunning if free agents Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel don't wait until after then to sign. And there is one team that has "real interest" in both.

The Braves, who are in second place in the NL East, had GM Alex Anthopoulos make it "clear" while speaking with Jim Bowden of The Athletic that they have interest in both players -- who will no longer be attached to draft pick compensation once the draft passes.

The Yankees, who have been scouting Keuchel and are currently without James Paxton, Luis Severino, and CC Sabathia, might also have some competition from the Rays, who have been staying in touch with Keuchel.

The Yankees continued their scouting of free-agent LHP Dallas Keuchel by attending his rain-shortened simulated game on Sunday, according to Newsday's Erik Boland.

Keuchel, the top free-agent starting pitcher, has been throwing simulated games around every five days in Newport Beach, California, and the Yankees sent one of their top evaluators, according to Boland.

The Yankees could wait until after next week's MLB draft to more heavily pursue Keuchel as to not forfeit a draft pick or international bonus pool money after he rejected the Astros' $17.9 million qualifying offer last offseason.

The Yankees could face some competition in bidding for free agent pitcher Dallas Keuchel from a division rival, but this time it does not appear to be the Boston Red Sox.  

Instead, the Tampa Bay Rays have been staying in touch with Keuchel, as well as closer Craig Kimbrel, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. 

The Yankees have been closely linked to Keuchel, who is expected to sign somewhere by June 3 when teams would no longer be subjected to draft-pick compensation.

Let the Madison Bumgarner sweepstakes begin in earnest after the Giants' lefty delivered the most compelling reason this season to believe that he can still be an October difference-maker for any number of teams, the Yankees obviously being one of them. 

More than ever the belief around baseball is the Giants are going to trade Bumgarner come July to kick off a needed rebuild. The question for weeks has been how much teams would be willing to give up as his stuff seemed diminished by age and two injury-plagued seasons.

Against the Braves on Thursday afternoon, however, Bumgarner's fastball, cutter, and curveball were crisp enough to produce 17 swings-and-misses, his highest such total since September of 2016, when he was a few weeks away from slamming the door shut on the Mets' postseason with a four-hit shutout in the wild-card game.

The Yankees need rotation depth, and the time is fast approaching when they'll have to make a decision as to the route they'll take to secure it.

The Yankees lost another rotation member Tuesday, when the club placed CC Sabathia on the 10-day injured list due to pain in his surgically repaired right knee. The Yankees are already down staff ace Luis Severino. And while James Paxton is close to returning from an injury of his own, he's not exactly the poster child for health.

Despite being completely decimated by injuries, the Yankees have managed to get contributions from everyone who has been asked to fill a void as they now find themselves atop the AL East. And it's all been a pleasure for owner Hal Steinbrenner to watch.

"Considering the adversity we've faced in the first two months of the season, it's phenomenal the job these guys have done," Steinbrenner told the Associated Press Friday at a Yankees extended spring training game before the big-league club came back in the ninth to defeat the Rays, 4-3, and wrest control of the division.

When Domingo German stepped on the mound as a Yankee in 2018, the talent and the hint of potential success in the big leagues was evident. However, German failed to consistently deliver positive results and eventually fell out of favor down the stretch.

None of that matters to the Yankees now because it is clear that German gained valuable experience from all those major-league reps.

Yankees search for pitching 00:00:44
Andy Martino gives an update for what's next for the Yankees and their search for a starters, is Bumgarner or Kecuhel more plausible.

The Yankees' starting rotation took another hit on Monday when they placed Jonathan Loaisiga on the 10-day IL with a right rotator cuff strain. 

Loaisiga will but shut down for four weeks with no throwing and joins left-hander James Paxton, whom he was replacing in the rotation, as well as ace Luis Severino among the Yankees starters on the IL. 

Paxton is making progress and will throw a bullpen session on Tuesday and the Yankees have suggested he would not spend more than three weeks on the IL.

If the Yankees plan on adding a pitcher this summer, a trade for Madison Bumgarner may not be so easy. 

Aside from building an enticing package to offer the San Francisco Giants, the 29-year-old left-hander submitted a no-trade list comprising of eight teams, one of which is the Yankees, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. 

Bumgarner, who is eligible to become a free agent in the offseason, has been rumored as a possible trade deadline chip as the Giants sit in last place 8.5 games out of the NL West lead.

While the Yankees may wait until after the MLB draft to pursue free-agent starting pticher Dallas Keuchel, there reportedly appears to be mutual interest.

The Yankees, Fancred's Jon Heyman said on WFAN on Thursday, are considered one of the favorites to sign Keuchel, who is still a free agent after rejecting the Astros' $17.9 million qualifying offer last offseason.

"I think the Yankees will be there for Keuchel," Heyman told WFAN's "Joe and Evan." "I think at this point, there's not a bad chance that the Yankees end up with Keuchel. Keuchel, from what I understand, would love to be in a big market, and the suitors for the most part to this point have not been of that ilk. ... If I had to pick one team out of the 30 right now, I would go with the Yankees."

Yankees trade deadline strategy 00:01:16
New York Yankees have had bad luck with injuries to starting pitching. SNY's Andy Martino says Yankees will target starters at the deadline

Injuries have decimated the Yankees at almost every position this season, but the front office expects to focus on acquiring starting pitching before the July 31 trade deadline, according to major league sources.

With Luis Severino and James Paxton on the injured list and Masahiro Tanaka's partially torn elbow ligament always on the team's mind, the Yankees view rotation help as the most pressing need. After the amateur draft ends on June 5, the team will turn its focus to that pursuit.

An acquisition could come either in the form of a trade or of a signing of free agent Dallas Keuchel. The Yankees are not willing to sign Keuchel before the draft, which would mean sacrificing a pick. But once the draft passes, they will view the former Cy Young winner as a viable short-term upgrade.

The Yankees beat the Twins, 4-1, in a rain-shortened affair at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Sunday's game

1) After coughing up four runs in his last start, Domingo German coasted to a one-run performance across 6 2/3 innings. German threw 108 pitches on his way to scattering four hits and three walks, while striking out seven batters. German has been fantastic filling in for Luis Severino, to the point that it's hard to suggest the club would have received better from its injured ace.

2) Mike Tauchman is by no means lighting the world on fire with his bat, but he has had some success at Yankee Stadium where seven of his eight hits have gone for extra bases, including today's two-run home run.

Dallas Keuchel still remains on the free agent market, and that could be the case throughout May as well. 

With Keuchel rejecting his $17.9 million qualifying offer with the Astros, he is now tied to draft compensation. Teams who are interested in signing the lefty starter would have to give up their highest draft pick after their first-rounder (if a team has more than one first-round pick, the top pick is exempt). 

According to MLB Network's Jon Heyman, the Yankees are among those teams interested in Keuchel, but only following that Draft. He spoke on his radio.com podcast "Big Time Baseball" with Josh Lewin to explain what he has heard.

So Gio Gonzalez is a Milwaukee Brewer, finally, and it appears that Dallas Keuchel's asking price would still have to drop considerably for either the Yankees or Mets to consider signing him.

Yet it's a good bet that both local teams will be in the market for another starting pitcher come the July 31 trade deadline.

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.)"

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.

Of all the Yankees currently sitting out on the Injured List, Luis Severino may be the most mind-boggling of them all. 

Severino's injury started with shoulder inflammation, an injury that usually needs rest to heal. But, after feeling more pain during his throwing program, Severino returned to New York to be reevaluated. Well, that evaluation included an MRI that revealed a lat strain, which has shut down the righty with July being his potential comeback.

But how can shoulder inflammation turn into a lat strain? Severino, who was at Yankee Stadium during the Yankees' win over the Red Sox on Wednesday night, believes that the strain actually occurred when he initially suffered an injury back on March 5.

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.

Gio Gonzalez has a decision to make this week.

There is an April 20 opt-out in the minor deal deal Gonzalez signed with the Yankees last month, giving him the chance to return to free agency if he hasn't been called up to the majors by Saturday.

"Right now, I'm not even thinking 30 teams," Gonzalez recently told the New York Post. "If it's not good enough for this team that I'm with right now, that's all that matters. I want to perform for the team that has me in their minors right now. Hopefully something happens."

If any Yankee fans were looking for Aaron Boone to call out his team or turn over a food table after the Houston Astros completed their sweep on Wednesday, they were once again disappointed by the even-tempered manager.

And as unsatisfying as it might be for a bloodthirsty public, Boone was exactly right, both in style and substance, when he said the following:

Brian Cashman has been talking up Domingo German, Jonathan Loaisiga, and Luis Cessa collectively as the under-the-radar cure for everything that ails the Yankees pitching plans. Well, now we'll find out whether he really believes that.

Or is the Yankee GM already plotting a way to trade for Madison Bumgarner?

Luis Severino has injured lat 00:01:18
New York Yankees were dealt another blow with Luis Severino diagnosed with a strained lat muscle. Sweeny Murti goes through their options.

The Yankees received bad news on RHP Luis Severino, as an MRI revealed a Grade 2 lat strain, according to multiple reports. Severino will be shut down for six weeks.

Severino was sent to New York on Monday after feeling some discomfort in his shoulder, manager Aaron Boone told reporters on Monday. The 25-year-old was out of the Yankees' rotation due to rotator cuff inflammation that occurred down in Spring Training. However, this is a new injury.

This is not what the Yankees wanted to see, especially coming from a starter who signed a $40 million extension back in February. Boone noted earlier this month that he was optimistic Severino would be able to move forward with his recovery to make it back into the rotation. Now, it's unknown exactly when that is going to happen again...

The Yankees gave a troubling update on injured ace Luis Severino on Monday, with manager Aaron Boone saying Severino didn't feel right while long-tossing and has been sent back to New York for a second MRI.

Severino, whose first MRI revealed right rotator cuff inflammation but no structural damage, was not expected to return until May. Now, that timeline will almost certainly be pushed back.

If the Yankees get good news after the MRI, Severino will likely be cleared to resume his throwing program. If they get bad news, it'll be a different story. Either way, it's fair to believe the Yankees should be looking to bolster their rotation with the uncertainty surrounding Severino. Here are five options, though only one might be available immediately...

Luis Severino suffers setback 00:01:34
New York Yankees Luis Severino is headed to NY to get a new MRI on his injured shoulder, this is a big blow to a depleted Yankees rotation.

Yankees RHP Luis Severino will undergo an MRI on his shoulder after feeling discomfort, manager Aaron Boone told reporters on Monday.

Severino, who has yet to pitch this season due to rotator cuff inflammation, has been dealing with the injury sice March 5. GM Brian Cashman said last month that Severino would return some time in May as a best-case scenario.

Yankees RHP Domingo German threw six strong innings, taking a no-hitter into the sixth inning in Sunday's 15-3 victory over the Orioles at Camden Yards.

"The key today was to mix my pitches and be unpredictable out there, try to use my changeup in a way that they weren't expecting it," German said, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "That's something I worked on in between starts. It worked out very well for me today."

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...

Yet, compared to the Red Sox, they're having the March/April of their dreams.

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.

Anthony McCarron, SNY.tv | Twitter |

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.

Yankees ace Luis Severino continues to progress in his return from rotator cuff inflammation, but the Yankees "want him to feel 100 percent" before he gets back on the mound, manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday, according to Lindsey Adler of The Athletic

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.
