The Yankees have DFA'd RHP Nick Goody to make room on the 40-man roster for re-signed LHP Aroldis Chapman, the team announced.

The Yankees and Chapman recently agreed to a five-year, $86 million deal.

"I love the (Yankees) organization," Chapman told ESPN's Marly Rivera. "They welcomed me with open arms and that's why I decided to go back. I was hoping I had a chance to go back and it happened."

The New York Yankees have some important roster choices to make by today's deadline to make changes to their 40-man roster before December's Rule 5 Draft, with any prospect added to the roster protected from potential selection. 

The Yankees have a slew of players to consider this season, some of whom are considered among their top-30 prospects.

As of Friday, the Yankees' 40-man roster stands at 39, so if they add more than one player, they'll need to determine which players they will let go in order to make room for any more additions. Some of these decisions should be easy for the organization.

Starlin Castro and Didi Gregorius combined to go 4 for 7 with four RBIs, and three New York Yankees pitchers shut down the Baltimore Orioles in a 7-1 win on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium.

Castro hit a two-run home run in the second inning that gave New York a 2-0 lead and hit a two-run double in the sixth inning that made it 5-1, as the Yankees won their third straight game and climbed above .500.

"It's big for us," Castro said, according to the New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand, on getting above .500. "I think that's the way that we're looking to be at that point. I think we are a great team. We just keep positive and keep fighting, I think that we're going to be good."

Sweeny Murti breaks down all the Yankees' action in their 8-4 loss tonight to the Colorado Rockies.

New York Yankees RHP Ivan Nova allowed six runs (five earned) and eight hits in four-plus innings as the Yankees lost to the Colorado Rockies, 8-4, Tuesday at Yankee Stadium. >> Read more


  • Nova (5-5) allowed three runs in the first inning and left the game after allowing a double and walk to lead off the fifth inning. Over his last six starts, Nova is 2-4 with a 6.88 ERA and has given up at least four runs in five of them.
  • Nick Goody allowed a two-run home run to Nolan Arenado in the sixth inning that gave the Rockies an 8-3 lead.
  • Charlie Blackmon hit two home runs as the Rockies' 1-4 hitters combined to go 11 for 18 with six RBIs.
  • Brett Gardner, Carlos Beltran, Didi Gregorius and Rob Refsnyder each had two hits for the Yankees, who lost their second straight game overall and third straight to Colorado after getting swept on the road last week.

The Yankees need to think long and hard about allowing Nova to make another start. As has been the case throughout his career, Nova teased fans with a short string of quality efforts only to fall apart and regress to the less than mediocre pitcher that he is.

The New York Yankees have an intimidating trio at the backend of their bullpen coined "No Runs DMC," but the remaining four relievers - whomever they have been - have failed to do their part and it is beginning to cost the club.

This is not exactly how the Yankees drew things up during the offseason and the spring. The club figured to have right-hander Bryan Mitchell and left-hander Chasen Shreve among the relievers, but the former is out for the season, and the latter is recuperating from a shoulder sprain.

The Yankees planned on Ivan Nova filling a long-man role when the season began, but Luis Severino's poor start in the rotation and an injury have him back in Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre trying to figure things out. That would have left one space for the traveling relief crew. The shuttle has to carry more members and it is simply not working.

Luis Severino allowed seven runs in 2 2/3 innings before leaving the game with an elbow injury and the New York Yankees managed just one run against Chris Sale in a 7-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Friday.

  • Severino (0-6) threw 81 pitches before leaving the game with soreness in the back of his right elbow. He will undergo an MRI after the game.
  • Severino allowed three runs in the second inning and four in the third inning. Jose Abreu hit a two-run single in the second that made it 3-0. Adam Eaton hit a two-run double, and Jimmy Rollins followed with a two-run home run.
  • Sale (8-0) lowered his ERA to 1.67 and has won every one of his starts this season. In his second complete game of the year, Sale allowed six hits and struck out six batters.
  • The Yankees had won four of their last five games prior to Friday's loss.
  • Chase Headley hit his second home run in as many nights after not recording an extra-base hit in his first 91 at-bats of the season.
  • Gary Sanchez, who was called up on Friday, went 0 for 4.
  • Nick GoodyChasen Shreve and Kirby Yates combined for 6 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing just two hits.

The loss tonight is not all that surprising considering the Yankees were facing arguably the best pitcher in the American League at the moment. At the same, the Yankees hoped Severino was making headway after his last start and could stick with Sale. Now, the Yankees will shift their concern to the health of their young promising starter.

The Yankees have placed RHP Branden Pinder on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain, the team said.

To replace Pinder on the roster, the Yankees recalled RHP Nick Goody from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Pinder appeared in one game for New York, allowing two eared runs on three hits and a walk.

At Triple-A, Goody has posted a 4.76 ERA over 5 2/3 innings.

The New York Yankees reassigned pitchers Branden Pinder, Nick Goody and Tyler Olson to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Pinder, 27, recorded a 2.93 ERA in 27 2/3 innings in 25 games for the Yankees last season, while Goody had a 4.76 ERA in seven appearances. Olson recorded a 5.40 ERA in 11 appearances for the Seattle Mariners last year.

Manager Joe Girardi already said Bryan Mitchell has earned a spot on the Yankees' 25-man roster out of camp.

Yes, the New York Yankees have compiled one of the best backend of the bullpen combinations in all of baseball. But, in doing so, have the Yankees neglected to pay enough attention to how the club will reach the dominant combination of Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman?

We touched on the fact that the starting rotation held some of the responsibility some weeks back, mentioning the importance of each member's ability to pitch deeper into games if they wanted to be considered an ace. Even if this improves across the line, the backend of the bullpen cannot pitch daily.

This makes the relievers charged with providing middle relief innings, as well as aiding the backend of the bullpen when rest is needed, quite important. To that end, the Yankees have decided to take a pretty big chance on relatively inexperienced relievers.
