Yanks blow out Sox 00:00:44
Aaron Boone talks about Luis Severino's stellar performance and the emergence of Luke Voit as a big bat in the Yankees lineup

The Yankees got to Red Sox LHP David Price once again on their way to a 10-1 beatdown in the Bronx on Wednesday night. >> Box score


1) Price kept the Yankees' bats at bay last time he faced their lineup, but his normal struggles against the pinstripes came back again. It was Miguel Andujar who tacked on the first run with a solo shot to right in the second. Then, after an error brought home two runs to make it 3-0, Luke Voit hit the first of two homers to right field in the fourth. A two-run shot came later in the sixth that knocked Price out of the game. 

2) Speaking of Voit, he had his first career four-game tonight. Also with multiple-hit games were Aaron Hicks and Andujar. Hicks tied Voit with a team-high three RBI night.

The Yankees will leave Minnesota with a sour taste in their mouths after getting two-hit by the Twins in a 3-1 loss Wednesday night. >> Box score


1) The Yankees' offense was ice cold against Jake Odorizzi, who carried a no-hit bid through 7.1 innings. Greg Bird finally broke the no-no with an RBI double that amounted to the Yanks' only offense of the night. Miguel Andujar singled in the top of the ninth for the second hit of the game, but otherwise, the Yankees just couldn't get anything going in this series finale. 

2) Luis Severino didn't go long (5.2 innings), but he only allowed one run in the sixth inning as the only hiccup of his start. He also struck out five batters in what was a good turnaround performance following his shortest outing of the season against the A's last time out.

1) Betances surrendered a leadoff walk to Mitch Haniger, who stole second base. Haniger advanced to third on a sacrifice and scored on Robinson Cano's fielder's choice to shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria.

2) The Yankees scored on Miguel Andujar's RBI double in the first inning and a bases-loaded walk by Andrew McCutchen in the fourth, but went 2-for-15 with runners in scoring position and left nine runners on base.

The Blue Jays brought it down to the wire, but struck a deal with the Indians to trade for 3B Josh Donaldson. But there were other teams talking to Toronto before the trade was ultimately set in stone. 

One of those teams were the Yankees, according to FanCred Sports' Jon Heyman. The Cardinals and Braves were also looking into a potential trade scenario. 

The Yankees didn't necessarily need Donaldson, especially with Miguel Andujar owning a hot bat at the moment. But Donaldson does have first base experience, and with Greg Bird struggling, it may have sparked interest in the former All-Star.

Did Boone rally the troops? 00:03:40
The BNNY panel discusses whether or not Aaron Boone's ejection in the fifth inning against the Tigers got the Yankees' offense going Friday.

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

Yankees manager Aaron Boone thought home plate umpire Nic Lentz wasn't calling a good game behind the plate. So, he decided to show him instead of just saying it.

Lentz ejected Boone, who was chirping from the dugout about balls and strikes, and the Yankee skipper ran out to home plate to give him more. In doing so, Boone crouched behind home and showed Lentz what is a ball and strike.

After such a tumultuous weekend up in Boston, would it be safe to say the Red Sox have taken the AL East title following their four-game sweep of the Yankees?

Manager Aaron Boone won't let up. 

"We will not. We're too good," Boone told ESPN's Coley Harvey when asked if the sweep defines the Yankees' season. "This is a test we're going through right now, there's no question."

Things to know about tonight's game

1) Porcello needed only 86 pitches to get through the entire Yankees offense. Miguel Andujar was the only Yankee to get a hit -- a solo homer in the top of the third inning. Porcello came into this game with a 5.10 ERA at Fenway Park, but that number certainly diminished after this masterpiece.

Matthew Cerrone (Twitter | Instagram | About Me): As expected, the Mets did not trade Jacob deGrom or Noah Syndergaard before the trade deadline, despite both pitchers being capable of bringing back a collection of top prospects.

The lack of action could mean the Mets did not see an offer worth accepting. Or, after doing their due diligence, they decided to keep their best two pitchers because they can have them through the 2020 season, sign them to long-term extensions, or look to trade them this winter with more teams involved in the bidding.

During the past few weeks, the Dodgers, Yankees, Padres, Phillies, and Braves were all reportedly looking for an elite starting pitcher under team control. More importantly, all five of the above teams had the necessary prospects required by the Mets. None of them landed a top pitcher, but the Pirates came out of nowhere to trade for No. 2 type starter Chris Archer with about 30 minutes to go before the deadline.

The Yankees strung together four runs to back Masahiro Tanaka's complete game shutout in a 4-0 victory over the Rays on Tuesday at Tropicana Field. >> Box score

Things to know about tonight's game

1) Tanaka only needed 105 pitches to get through nine innings and struck out nine batters in the process. He allowed just three hits and walked one batter against a Rays lineup that went 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position.

2) Didi Gregorius drove in the Yankees' first run in the first inning, while Tyler Wade came around to score on Austin Romine's groundout in the fifth. The Yankees scored a third run in the seventh when Romine hit a sacrifice fly to right. Neil Walker tacked on an RBI single in the ninth inning.

3) Miguel Andujar and Greg Bird each had two hits for the Yankees, who totaled eight hits on the night and still managed to win despite going 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

The Yankees are expressing serious interest in Baltimore closer Zach Britton, and the Orioles want to trade him as soon as possible, according to major league sources.

Five or six teams are trying to trade for Britton, and it's too early to say where he will land. But the Yankees are making a strong play for him.

The Yankees are also looking for a starting pitcher, but are underwhelmed by the options. They checked in on San Diego reliever Brad Hand, but were unwilling to trade Miguel Andujar, and Hand went to Cleveland.

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.

German mediocre vs. Cleveland 00:05:00
The Baseball Night in New York panel debates which starter the Yankees should pursue after Domingo German struggled again against Cleveland.

The Yankees almost battled back from a four-run deficit, but they came up short in a 6-5 loss to the Indians on the road Friday night. >> Box score

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.

Yankees 3B Miguel Andujar has been a regular in the lineup since Brandon Drury hit the DL with his migraine and blurry vision issues. He provides an above-average bat that has brought about the Rookie of the Year conversations this season. 

But could the Yankees simply be pumping up this young talent to entice other teams to trade for him by July 31? 

According to The Post's Joel Sherman, multiple MLB executives believe Andujar being the Yankees' everyday hot corner starter isn't going to last long. This claim is made based off his bad defensive stats at the position as well as his swing-happy mindset at the dish...

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...

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.

Going up against the best team in the MLB -- let alone a heated rival -- the Yankees needed all of their offensive weapons on point heading into their three-game series with Boston on Friday night. 

One of those power bats includes Greg Bird, who has struggled since his return to the Yankee lineup. Well, he may have finally found his stroke after a strong performance to help lift the Yankees in Game 1. 

Bird delivered not one, but two solo shots against the Sox, and he did so by going to both sides of the field. His first came after Miguel Andujar belted a two-run homer to left, and Bird hit a screamer to left field himself off Eduardo Rodriguez to make it a 4-0 game.

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.

After another week of voting, Yankees OF Aaron Judge is still the only player slated to start for the American League All-Star team.

There are other Yankees on the ballot, however, they sit behind others. Gleyber Torres (797,817) is sitting behind the top-voted player in Jose Altuve (2,460,967) for second base, while Miguel Andujar (764,032) is behind Jose Ramirez (1,319,651) for third base.

While the Yankees have loads of MLB-ready depth in their lineup sitting in the minors, they will be forced to test that with their rotation.

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.

Things to know about Sunday's game

1) Down 2-0 in the eighth inning, the Yankees had runners on first and second thanks to Miguel Andujar's single and Aaron Judge reaching on two Jose Reyes errors on a neighborhood play on a potential double-play ball, but Gleyber Torres fouled out and Brett Gardner flied out to end the threat.

Trade deGrom or Syndergaard? 00:00:47
On Daily News Live, the panel debates whether or not the Mets should be open to trading Jacob deGrom or Noah Syndergaard.

Danny Abriano, SNY.tv | Twitter | The 27-32 Mets are not considering a rebuild at this point, though that could change, GM Sandy Alderson said earlier this week. However, Alderson called the possibility "remote" -- meaning dealing Jacob deGrom and/or Noah Syndergaard at this point should also be viewed as remote. 

Still, the narrative that the Mets should trade one or both of them will not die. Nor will the idea that the Yankees are a perfect fit if the Mets do decide to trade one or both of them. And as much as this makes most Mets fans want to vomit, the Yankees really would be a perfect fit.

So, in a world where the Mets end up putting deGrom and/or Syndergaard on the trading block, what would it take to trade one of them to the Yankees?

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | ArchivesGleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar didn't make the Yankees out of spring camp, but neither one is going to see Scranton/Wilkes-Barre again unless it's a rehab assignment.

Andujar, a talented hitter labeled as an inadequate defensive player, and Torres, another first-year major leaguer touted as one of the best the game has to offer, have settled in nicely with the Yankees. Each player has endured some growing pains, but neither has allowed a mistake to bleed into the next play or next at-bat.

Andujar and Torres, 23 and 21 years old respectively, seem mature beyond their years. No situation has been too big. And like any confident player, they turn the page quickly when a poor at-bat or play in the field occurs, certain they can contribute in a positive way before long. That instance came about for both players in Tuesday's comeback victory over the Astros.

Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner extended his hitting streak to seven games by going 3-for-4 in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels at Yankee Stadium.

Gardner was not a factor in the Yankees' three-run third inning -- the Yankees scored on Aaron Hicks' bases-loaded walk, Greg Bird's bases-loaded HBP and a Miguel Andujar fielder's choice -- but Gardner had three of New York's five hits.

"I feel good at the plate," Gardner told reporters after the game. "I'm seeing the ball well and just trying to put at-bats together to get on base for the guys behind me."

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter | It hasn't been easy to find ways to write about the Yankees lately, at least without looking ridiculous. There's only so many holes an analyst can poke in a 30-13 team. Yeah, they need rotation help, but we've said that already.

What's left to write? "The Yankees continue to be awesome" is hardly news. So we were pleased to find, following the team's weekend romp in Kansas City, an actual problem. Are you ready for it? The Yankees have … way too many good players. They are facing a roster crunch that almost never happens in baseball.

This is not an issue relatable to the Mets, who somehow scratched out a win Sunday with a lineup that felt more appropriate for a spring training road game. And while the Yankees are pleased that their problems are of the first-world variety, they face difficult decisions on talented players...

The comparisons are beginning to percolate between the 2018 New York Yankees squad, and the 1998 team that graced us with one of the best seasons ever turned in by a baseball team in MLB history.

The obvious similarity is the record each possessed after 34 games -- the 1998 team was 26-8, while the Yankees of today sit at 24-10. The '98 club got off to a rocky start (1-4), but turned the corner rather quickly and fiercely, winning 25 of their next 29 games. The current Yanks are on a 15-1 run after failing to find anything, but a middle ground for the team's first 18 games.

The duo of Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar has been lighting it up in the Bronx as the Yankees rookies continue to showcase why they are among the top prospects in baseball.

And it is catching the eye of their general manager, Brian Cashman. 

Torres made headlines on Sunday after his walk-off homer against the Braves capped an 18-game stretch that saw the Yankees go 16-2. His home run made him the youngest ever in the franchise's history to hit a walk-off blast...

Riding high on a nine-game win streak, the Yankees are currently the hottest team in baseball.

The Bronx Bombers swept the Angels on Sunday night with a close 2-1 win as they continue to heat up heading into May. They outscored the Angels 17-5 in the series, and this is a team that was 16-9 -- almost the same record as New York (15-9) -- heading into the series. 

But, before the Yankees can return home, they will make a stop in a stadium that saw them freezing cold the last time they stepped on its diamond...

GEICO SportsNite: Yankees 00:03:36
Anthony McCarron breaks down CC Sabathia's performance in the Yankees' 2-1 win on Sunday night as they extended their win streak to nine.

Yankees LHP CC Sabathia continued his hot start to the season by throwing seven strong innings in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium.

The veteran Sabathia (2-0) struck out four batters and allowed one run and four hits in seven innings as he lowered his ERA to 1.71.

Since allowing three home runs in a no-decision in a 7-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on April 6, Sabathia is 2-0 with a 0.52 ERA, giving up four runs (one earned) and 11 hits in 17 1/3 innings.

Orioles star Manny Machado will be a free agent at the end of the season, and has been a rumored target of the Yankees for quite some time. But there are a few issues.

1. Machado wants to play shortstop, where Didi Gregorius is currently entrenched. 

2. Even if the Yankees convince Machado to play third base, does the presence of Miguel Andujar mean they should have second thoughts about pursuing Machado? The Baseball Night in New York crew discusses...
