The Yankees have activated SS Didi Gregorius from the disabled list and designated INF Pete Kozma for assignment, the team announced Friday.

Gregorius had been playing rehab games with High-A Tampa.

He had been rehabbing a right shoulder strain suffered during the World Baseball Classic, could come off the disabled list Friday night to face the Orioles at Yankee Stadium.

With Gregorius back, Ronald Torreyes will go back to his role as the team's utility infielder...

Bird, who entered the game with a .038 batting average, was a triple shy of the cycle, hitting a two-run home run in the bottom of the second inning after Aaron Judge's home run was overturned on replay to break a 1-1 tie.

Judge went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple. He hit a ball to deep right field off Adam Wainwright (0-3) that deflected off a fan's glove and back onto the field. Umpires reviewed the play and ruled fan interference, resulting in a triple.

In the second part of our Yankees 2017 season preview, we cover the offense and provide a prediction for the team's finish in the standings...

Positional starters

Gary Sanchez burst onto the scene last August, delivering a 20-homer performance and shattering records in the process. Sanchez, 24, entered spring training with numerous doubters, but he demonstrated that he is ready to build on his rookie production. Behind the plate, Sanchez has improved his receiving and has one of the best catcher's arms in the game.

At first base, Greg Bird assumes the role he seemed set to after a blistering rookie performance in 2015. Unfortunately, Bird suffered a season-ending shoulder injury before spring training last season. Bird, 24, benefitted from not pushing the rehab process as he came to camp strong and looks poised for a big season after launching seven home runs this spring. He should provide solid defense at first base.

The Yankees have a number of highly touted prospects, but what makes the organization's farm system one of the best in the game is its depth. With that in mind, let's discuss some second-tier prospects who might see some time with the big league club this season...

Chance Adams

The Yankees have conducted a five-player competition this spring to find the team's No. 4 and No. 5 starters. Adams was not part of the competition, but he did enough last season and during the spring while in MLB camp to be considered an option down the road.

Adams, the Yankees' No. 8 prospect according to MLB Pipeline, recorded a 2.33 ERA across 127 1/3 innings at High-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton in 2016, to go along with a 0.90 WHIP, 10.2 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9. This spring, Adams tossed four innings and had a 2.25 ERA in big league camp. It would not be surprising if he continues to climb the rotation ladder as the season progresses, making him a potential call-up in case of injuries within the MLB rotation.

With the loss of starting shortstop Didi Gregorius, the Yankees are showing interest in the Reds' Zack Cozart, the Tigers' Jose Iglesias and the Diamondbacks Nick Ahmed as potential replacements, NJ.com's Brendan Kuty reports.

Gregorius injured his shoulder while playing for the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic and could miss all of April.

While the Yankees spoke with the Reds and Tigers about Cozart and Iglesias respectively, they said they weren't prepared to trade for either, reports George A. King III of the NY Post.

Spring training is just a couple of weeks old, so managers are tinkering around with many lineup variations to see if certain iterations work better than others. Let's discuss some lineup options - based on handedness and substitutions - that Yankees manager Joe Girardi might consider for this season.

Versus right-handed pitcher

There are plenty of other variations that Girardi can go to, however, these two show what I envision he'll explore the most. Keep in mind, the Yankees do not expect to have any left-handed hitting bench options other than Aaron Hicks (a switch-hitter) if he loses the right field job.

The Yankees made infielder Starlin Castro available in trade talks this offseason, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

"Meanwhile, the Yankees have been unable to deal Brett GardnerChase Headley or Starlin Castro, who they let some clubs know was available," wrote Sherman. "To date, that has kept them from pushing for a pricey reliever."

The 26-year-old was acquired by New York last offseason in the deal that sent RHP Adam Warren to the Cubs.

The New York Yankees 2016 season was a disappointment as they missed the postseason for the third time in the last four years. The club's position players turned in uneven offensive performances, which was a major letdown and factored heavily in the team's 84-78 record. On the field, the Yankees turned in a slightly above-average effort as a whole.

In 2015, the Yankees received big comeback performances from veterans they were not expected to rely on; Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira. Rodriguez missed the entire 2014 season due to a yearlong suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. Teixeira suffered through another injury-plagued season in 2014, which diminished expectations for 2015. Both men had resurgent efforts, with Rodriguez hitting 33 home runs and Teixeira going yard 31 times.

The Yankees opened an early 7-0 lead and beat the Rays, 11-5, on Wednesday night in Tampa.

  • RBI singles from Gary Sanchez, Brian McCann, and Ronald Torreyes in the first inning gave the Yankees a 3-0 lead
  • In the second inning, Sanchez hit a three-run homer and Didi Gregorius added a sacrifice fly to extend New York's lead to 7-0.
  • The Rays hit four home runs in the third inning off Masahiro Tanaka -- including back-to-back-to-back shots -- to cut the lead to 7-4.
  • Sanchez hit a solo homer (his 19th of the season) in the sixth inning to make it 8-4, Yankees.
  • Brad Miller's solo homer in the eighth inning cut Tampa's deficit to 8-5.

The Yankees' inability to put away the Red Sox with tack on runs, coupled with Yankees' manager Joe Girardi's ill-advised moves (and non-moves) with his relievers contributed to a devastating series sweep.

When the New York Yankees began trading away their best players before the non-waiver deadline, a postseason berth seemed years away. That sentiment seemed crystal clear when the Yankees handed starting jobs to Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge, two of the teams vaunted prospects.

The moves made (and still make) sense. Carlos Beltran was gone and the Yankees were getting limited production from veteran Brian McCann behind the plate. The Yankees also brought up Tyler Austin to split time with a struggling Mark Teixeira at first base and rookie utility man Ronald Torreyes also began to get more playing time.

In a span of several days in late July, the New York Yankees traded their closer, were swept by the last-place Tampa Bay Rays and then traded their replacement closer and best hitter to that point in the season.

It was the correct approach, but one that typically signals that focus has shifted to next season. A month later, the Yankees might be a serious playoff contender.

Starlin Castro hit a sac fly in the 10th inning off Seth Lugo to drive in Jacoby Ellsbury, and Dellin Betances escaped a 10th-inning jam to give the New York Yankees a 6-5 win over the New York Mets on Monday at Citi Field. >> Read more...

  • The Yankees loaded the bases off Lugo (0-1) with nobody out on a walk, a single and a bunt for a fielder's choice. Ben Gamel laid down a sacrifice bunt, but Lugo's throw to third base was a split second late. Two batters later, Castro hit a deep sac fly to right field to break a 5-5 tie.
  • Betances struck out Curtis Granderson with runners on second and third to end the game to record his first save since Oct. 1, 2015. James Loney led off the 10th inning with a double and advanced to third on a sac bunt. Betances hit Alejandro de Aza, who advanced to second on a groundout. Betances struck out Granderson on three pitches.
  • Adam Warren (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings of relief for the win.
  • Didi Gregorius tied the game with a two-out, two-run single in the top of the eighth inning off Addison Reed. The Yankees had runners on the corners with two outs, but a wild pitch allowed pinch runner Ronald Torreyes to advance to second and score on Gregorius' single.
  • Matt Reynolds hit a three-run home run off CC Sabathia in the sixth inning that turned a 3-2 deficit into a 5-3 Mets lead.
  • Brett Gardner broke a 1-1 tie with an RBI double in the fifth inning, then scored on Ellsbury's RBI single that gave the Yankees a 3-1 lead.
  • Michael Conforto made it 3-2 with an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth.
  • Sabathia allowed five runs, eight hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings. 
  • Logan Verrett gave up three runs, four hits and three walks in five innings.
  • Wilmer Flores homered in the second inning to give the Mets an early 1-0 lead.
  • Ellsbury scored on a Verrett wild pitch that tied the game at 1 in the fourth inning.

A new era may have begun in the Yankees organization, but the 2016 squad still needs to compete. They did just that, battling back to tie the score in the eighth inning, and taking the lead in the 10th inning with the eventual winning run.
