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 short-term future looks bleak for Yankees slugger Miguel Andujar, who faces potential season-ending surgery, but the Bombers have found themselves another bat. 

The Yankees acquired switch-hitting first baseman/DH Kendrys Morales from the Oakland A's in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. 

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees transferred Jonathan Loaisiga to the 60-day IL.

Brian Cashman has been a real "pain in the a--" for other GMs around baseball, at least according to Oakland Athletics executive vice president Billy Beane. 

Beane told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic on Monday that he used to tease Cashman that the Yankees GM wanted to run the Bronx Bombers like a small-market team. Now, through the first 40 games of the 2019 season, it certainly feels like Cashman has gotten that chance. 

Despite opening the season with a $203 million payroll, the Yankees have weathered the storm of an incredible amount of injuries to star players to a 24-16 record, sitting just a half-game out of the AL East lead.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV  Twitter | About Me | Archives: The Yankees lost to the Mariners, 10-1, at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Six takeaways from Wednesday's game…

1) Are the Yankees asking too much of Jonathan Loaisiga? In four innings, the 24-year-old right-hander coughed up four runs on six hits (including a home run) and two walks, while striking out three batters. Here's the thing: Loaisiga has more innings in the big leagues than he does at any professional level besides his one season in the Dominican Summer League back in 2013. Loaisiga is a talented pitcher, but he's far from polished and asking him to do that in the majors might not be fair.

The Yankees didn't flex their financial muscles in the most obvious way last winter, passing on Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, but they nevertheless bought themselves a luxury item that few other teams in baseball can afford:

A $27 million sixth-inning reliever.

And a $39 million seventh-inning reliever, oh by the way.

Five takeaways from Monday's game

1) It seems each time Brett Gardner gets into a bit of a rut, he comes through with a home run. The Yankees veteran outfielder homered and tripled in three at-bats, helping to boost his average to .223. Gardner would be better served playing less, but the Yankees are not living with luxury right now.

Looking for some consistency and maybe even a spark from a vacant position on the diamond, the Yankees took a low-risk chance on Luke Voit in 2018 and the summer trade - basically another experiment - paid significant dividends.

There might have been some uncertainty at the outset of the 2019 season as to Voit's future, but once again he is carrying the club. Voit's amazing run to end the 2018 regular season was a surprise that came at the right time for the squad. Now, much more so than last season, Voit is being relied on to carry the load and he's not disappointing.

There has been no slowing down Luke Voit out on the West Coast. 

The Yankees first baseman has been on a tear over the last week and was recognized for it on Monday when he was named the American League Player of the Week. 

Since the Yankees began their West Coast trip last week against the Angels, Voit is 13-for-30 with a .433/.528/.867 slash line. He has four home runs, 10 RBI, five walks, a double and 10 runs scored with four multi-hit games in his last seven games.

The Yankees beat the Giants 11-5 on Sunday, finishing off a sweep at Oracle Park. >> Box score

Six takeaways from Sunday's game

1) Domingo German's final line -- 6 IP, 5H, 4R, 1 BB and 4 K -- doesn't really tell how good he was for the most of this game. German cruised through his first five innings, allowing no runs on just one hit. German might have tired some in the sixth, as he was tagged for four runs on four hits. German (5-1) still got the win behind the Yankees' offense and continues to uphold his part in the team's rotation.

The Yankees will sign veteran first baseman Logan Morrison to a minor-league deal, according to Mass Live's Chris Cotillo.

The 31-year-old Morrison, who slashed .186/.276/.368 with 15 home runs and 39 RBIs in 95 games with the Twins last season, gives the Yankees depth at first base after they placed Greg Bird on the injured list earlier this week. 

Morrison has a July 1 opt-out date and will earn $1 million if he makes the MLB roster, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan.

With Greg Bird heading to the IL due to a plantar fascia tear, the Yankees have called up slugging lefty-hitting first baseman Mike Ford from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Here are three things to know about him...

He was crushing it in Triple-A, but is an 'old' prospect

Ford was hitting .410/.467/.897 with five homers and four doubles in 10 games (45 plate appearances) this season in Triple-A. And while those numbers are incredibly impressive Ford -- at 26 years old -- is an "old" prospect.

His 2019 performance is also an aberration compared to how he's performed during his minor league career. In seven minor league seasons, Ford has hit .271/.372/.442 with 71 homers in 561 games.

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:

Five takeaways from Wednesday's game…

1 ) The Yankees need James Paxton to be a stopper. He couldn't quell the bleeding tonight. Paxton's ERA on the season rose to 6.00 after allowing five runs on eight hits (including two home runs to Jose Altuve) and three walks. He labored through 95 pitches in just four innings of work. Simply put, Paxton has to better. He was brought in to sit atop the rotation and carry the club to the postseason. So far, Paxton has failed to live up to expectations.

 The Yankees suffer a second straight late-inning loss to the Astros, 6-3, at Minute Maid Ballpark.

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game…

1) Rookie right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga looked great in the first inning, striking out the Astros in order. From there it was a bit of a different story, but not all of Loaisiga's doing as his defense didn't make things any easier. Loaisiga tossed just three innings, allowing two runs on four hits, two walks while striking out five batters. This was likely Loaisiga's final start with the big league club for a while with CC Sabathia due back from the injured list by the time the spot comes back through the rotation.

The Yankees go for a three-game sweep of the Orioles on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. 

Yankees Notes

In an American League where many expected contenders are struggling (the Red Sox are 2-8, the Astros are 4-5), the Yankees' +6 run differential is the fourth-best. ... The Yanks enter the day 1.5 games behind the Rays for first place in the AL East.

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.

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.

After dropping their opening series to the lowly Orioles, the Yankees are in danger of losing another three-game set as they host the Tigers in the rubber game Wednesday at 4:05 p.m.

Yankees notes

DJ LeMahieu is making his third straight start at third base in place of the injured Miguel Andujar, and with Brett Gardner getting a day off, LeMahieu moves up into the leadoff spot. ... Jonathan Loaisiga was officially called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre as CC Sabathia was reinstated from suspension and placed on the 10-day injured list as he works back from cardiac surgery. ... Gary SanchezGreg Bird and Troy Tulowitzki are all back in the lineup. Luke Voit is the DH and Mike Tauchman shifts to center.

Injury scare for the Yankees 00:01:15
The Yankees had a scare when Luke Voit was hit by a pitch against the Tigers. The team has a long list of injuries already.

The Yankees lost their game against the Tigers on Tuesday, 3-1, and they almost lost another key player to the Injured List in Luke Voit

In the bottom of the eighth, Voit took a Joe Jimenez fastball off his hand. But the big man took the trip down to first base, and stayed in the game. After the loss, Voit reassured the media that his X-rays came back negative, but he still wasn't particularly happy about that inning.

It wasn't just Jimenez hitting him that made him "pissed," but Voit also took exception to what the righty did in the next at-bat. Gleyber Torres hit a line drive right back to Jimenez, and he proceeded to jump on first base to double up Voit. The Yankees first baseman thought Jimenez was trying to show him up.

After Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Orioles dropped the Yankees to 1-2, manager Aaron Boone isn't pressing the panic button. 

Far from it.

"I'm not in the projection business, first of all," Boone said, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey. "I reject that all the way."

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.

It wasn't supposed to happen, but the Yankees traveled to the Bronx from Tampa with both Luke Voit and Greg Bird on the roster. It would've been manager Aaron Boone's hardest decision if he had to choose one over the other.

Luckily, he didn't have to as both Voit and Bird found their way on to the Yankees' Opening Day lineup. And they didn't disappoint.

In his first at-bat with two runners on, Voit cranked a three-run homer to Monument Park to make the Yankee Stadium crowd go berserk, and put the Bombers on the board first. Voit also worked two walks.

The debate as to who will get the start at first base for the Yankees on Opening Day finally comes to an end, as manager Aaron Boone told the media Greg Bird is getting the nod.

But this move doesn't mean Luke Voit isn't taking a seat on the bench. He will serve as the designated hitter for the Yankees against the Orioles, while Boone sees him getting the start on Friday. 

Boone also unveiled the rest of the starters for Opening Day, though he wouldn't reveal where they will hit in the lineup. Here are the other starters...

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.

Greg Bird was all set to return to the Yankees' lineup on Saturday, but Aaron Boone didn't want to risk it.

After taking batting practice, Bird -- who was hit on his right elbow by a pitch on Wednesday -- was scratched before the Yanks' 7-3 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday. Bird was also scratched on Thursday and sent for X-rays and a CT scan because of swelling; both tests were negative.

Yankees first baseman Greg Bird was scratched from Thursday's lineup so he could undergo X-rays on his elbow after he was hit by a pitch in Wednesday's game, according to The Athletic's Lindsey Adler. Luckily, it looks like Bird will be just fine. 

According to Newsday's David Lennon, manager Aaron Boone said the X-rays and CT scan that Bird received in Tampa came back negative. The Yankees, then, will have Bird rest to allow the swelling to subside. 

Manager Aaron Boone said he thought Bird could have played today, but sent him back for precautionary measures, adding he was worried that Bird playing through soreness could affect his mechanics, according to Adler. Yankees GM Brian Cashman expects Bird to be day-to-day, telling Adler the X-rays are "routine."
