The Yankees have been decimated by injuries this year, with roughly a dozen key players going down. Check back here for the latest updates on the walking wounded.
10-day IL: Giancarlo Stanton, Cameron Maybin
60-day IL: Jacoby Ellsbury, Luis Severino, Dellin Betances, Greg Bird, Jordan Montgomery, Miguel Andujar, Jonathan Loaisiga, Troy Tulowitzki
July 14, 9:35 PM:
Yankees LHP Jordan Montgomery threw batting practice earlier this week for the first time since being shut down since an MRI revealed shoulder inflammation on June 20, and manager Aaron Boone said the Yankees are still holding out hope that Montgomery could return by the end of the season, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.
The 26-year-old Montgomery, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, is 11-7 with a 3.84 ERA in 35 career starts since debuting in 2017.
July 14, 11:06 AM:
Boone said on Sunday that both Luis Severino (shoulder/lat) and Dellin Betances (shoulder/lat) have both been cleared by doctors to begin a throwing program on Monday.
July 13, 11:16 AM:
Cameron Maybin (calf strain) ran, threw and took batting practice on Saturday. It was his first time running at 100 percent since his injury, but he has not yet run the bases. He told reporters he hopes to begin a minor-league rehab assignment in about a week.
July 12, 4:52 PM:
Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters on Friday that Luke Voit will be activated off the 10-day IL. Boone said on Thursday that Voit would return by Monday at the latest.
July 12, 12:40 PM:
Luis Severino will be examined again on Saturday with the hope that he will be able to resume his throwing program after, GM Brian Cashman said Friday on MLB Network radio.
According to Cashman, Severino will need "six or more" weeks to get ready once he's cleared. That timetable could put Severino's return around early-September if all goes well.
July 4, 5:27 PM:
Manager Aaron Boone said he didn't have a definitive timetable for when Severino or Dellin Betances would return, saying Severino was "closer" and could resume throwing "maybe by this time next week," according to the New York Daily News' Kristie Ackert.
Boone said Giancarlo Stanton, out with a sprained right PCL, has "made some progress as far as range of motion" and is showing improvement, while Greg Bird, who is dealing with a torn plantar fascia, is "still going slow" in his mission to return.
July 2, 5:40 PM:
Aaron Boone announced on Tuesday that RHP Domingo German will return from the IL on Wednesday and start against the Mets at Citi Field.
June 30, 8:39 AM:
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman admitted on Sunday that in "hindsight" he should have had Severino go for an MRI prior to restarting his throwing program. Severino's sore lat is only 90 percent healthy and has been shut down for the next five to seven days. Cashman expressed optimism that Severino will pitch this season.
"I plan on getting him back, but whenever he does come back, a guy like that, you make room for," he said. "The job is to improve on what we've got regardless. And when he's available we'll certainly easily find a spot for him."
Cashman also said he has no update on Troy Tulowitzki while Jacoby Ellsbury continues to rehab.
June 29, 10:36 AM:
Yankees manager Aaron Boone revealed before Saturday's game that Luis Severino had a setback and was shut down again with soreness in his right lat. Severino underwent an MRI that showed his lat is 90 percent healed and will not throw again until it is 100 percent healed. Boone estimated that it would be another five to seven days before that could happen.
Boone also provided an update on Dellin Betances, who has also not resumed throwing but will likely do so when the Yankees return home from London.
June 26, 5:09 PM:
Giancarlo Stanton just can't catch a break. Aaron Boone said after the Yankees' walk-off win on Wednesday that he is going back on the IL with a PCL strain.
Boone initially said before the game that the tests came back good. However, Stanton will return to the IL after just coming off it last week. He only played in the opening series of the season before spending more than two months on the list.
June 25, 10:22 PM:
Aaron Boone said after Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays that Domingo German (hip) will make a rehab start for Triple-A Scranto/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday. If all goes well, he is expected to rejoin the team after its London trip.
June 25, 11:52 AM:
After activating Kendrys Morales from the 10-day IL on Tuesday, the Yankees desingated him for assignment.
June 21, 3:49 PM:
Aaron Hicks was not in the lineup on Friday for the second straight game and he revealed he has been playing through a right shoulder injury the last week and a half. He said he is on day two of a cortisone shot and expects to be back in the lineup on Saturday, per Coley Harvey of ESPN.
June 21, 12:01 PM:
The Yankees reinstated outfielder Aaron Judge off the injured list after he had missed the past two months due to an oblique strain.
Judge, 27, had been out since April 20, slashing .288/.404/.521 with five home runs and 11 RBIs before going on the IL.
In five rehab games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Judge went 2-for-16 with one home run and two RBIs.
June 18, 8:43 PM:
Aaron Judge said earlier in the day that he felt 100 percent, and he put his words into action on Tuesday night.
Judge blasted a home run to right center field in the fifth inning for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. After Giancarlo Stanton made his return to the Yankees' lineup on Tuesday, it appears that Judge isn't too far behind.
June 18, 6:00 PM:
Aaron Judge was in Scranton on Tuesday to resume his rehab assignment and said the plan is for him to play two nine-inning games in the field before he returns to the Yankees. Judge also added that he is "100 percent."
"I wouldn't be in games if I wasn't ready to go," he said. "Just about getting the reps after two months off."
June 18, 3:44 PM:
Per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com, Luis Severino's throwing program is up to 105 feet and he expects to throw off a mound on June 25 or 26. Domingo German also played catch on flat ground Monday and felt no hip discomfort. He will play catch again on Tuesday and added he is feeling better, per ESPN's Coley Harvey.
Dellin Betances told reporters that he is still dealing with discomfort from his lat strain and hopes to return to the team in the second half of the season.
Aaron Boone also said that LHP Jordan Montgomery "walked off" with discomfort after his bullpen session in Tampa on Tuesday.
June 17, 11:11 PM:
Giancarlo Stanton has been given a path to return from the IL as the Yankees optioned OF Mike Tauchman to Triple-A Scranton. Stanton is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday for the first time since March 31.
June 14, 8:03 PM:
Giancarlo Stanton's power display continued on Friday night. Making his debut with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Stanton hit a monstrous three-run home run.
Aaron Judge was also in the RailRiders' lineup as the DH, but he did not record a hit in four at-bats, striking out three times.
June 14, 12:36 PM:
Aaron Judge is nearing his return. The Yankees slugger will begin his rehab assignment Friday night with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Joining Judge in Scranton is Giancarlo Stanton, whose rehab assignment is being transferred there from Single-A Tampa, signaling he could soon be on his way back, too.
June 13, 6:10 PM:
Giancarlo Stanton could be back in the Yankees' lineup early next week. According to Aaron Boone, Stanton will spend the next three days with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and if all goes well, he could be activated on Tuesday when the Yankees are at home against the Rays.
June 12, 7:26 PM:
Giancarlo Stanton continues to rake during his rehab assignment in Tampa. The outfielder slugged his third and fourth home runs in three games for the Tarpons on Wednesday night.
B-3rd: HE DID IT AGAIN!- Tampa Tarpons (@TampaTarpons) June 12, 2019
HOME RUN, GIANCARLO STANTON!!!!
A blast off the batter's eye puts us back in front - his 3rd HR in 3 games with the #Tarpons!
End- 3rd: Tampa 2, Fort Myers 1 pic.twitter.com/anhc6phire
Yankees manager Aaron Boone has said that there's a chance Stanton could be sent up to Triple-A by this Friday.
June 11, 6:27 PM:
Appearing on The Michael Kay Show, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said that Aaron Judge could be back in the Yankees' lineup by the team's next homestand, when the Yankees start a 10-game stretch in the Bronx with a Monday matchup against Tampa Bay.
According to Boone, there's a chance that both Judge and Giancarlo Stanton could be playing in Triple-A this weekend. On Tuesday night, Stanton went deep with an opposite field home run for the Tampa Tarpons.
June 11, 4:43 PM:
Yankees GM Brian Cashman said on Monday that the team had their "fingers crossed" that Dellin Betances' setback in Tampa was nothing serious, but Aaron Boone announced to reporters on Tuesday that the right-hander has a "low-grade lat strain" and the team will shut him down for "a couple weeks."
Betances threw 25 pitches on May 30th, but after feeling pain in his shoulder/lat area, the 31-year-old traveled to New York on Monday for further evaluation.
June 11, 11:39 AM:
Luis Severino, whose return could be around the All-Star break, was throwing at 60 feet on the grass at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday morning, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. Severino is basically re-doing his Spring Training after suffering a setback earlier this season while rehabbing.
June 9, 5:39 PM:
Aaron Judge, who has been out since mid-April due to a right oblique strain, could appear in some minor-league rehab games as early as this weekend, manager Aaron Boone told reporters before Monday's Yankees-Mets game.
Meanwhile, Giancarlo Stanton, who had put his rehab on hold due to left calf tightness, will play rehab games with High-A Tampa on Tuesday and Wednesday, then move on to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.
GM Brian Cashman had differing viewpoints on the injuries to Domingo German and Dellin Betances when he spoke on WFAN on Monday afternoon.
Though the Yankees placed German on the IL on Sunday with a left hip flexor strain, Cashman said the MRI looked "good" and that "it doesn't really look like there's anything of concern there."
However, Cashman sounded worried for Betances, who suffered a setback over the weekend when he felt soreness in his right shoulder. "Fingers crossed, we're holding our breath to make sure it's nothing serious," Cashman said of Betances, who is set to visit another team doctor.
June 8, 2:15 PM:
Dellin Betances will head from Tampa to New York to visit Dr. Chris Ahmad on Monday. He didn't throw a scheduled side session in Tampa on Friday because of soreness in his shoulder/lat.
Meanwhile, Giancarlo Stanton could begin a rehab assignment on Monday or Tuesday, Aaron Boone told reporters in Cleveland.
June 7, 12:37 PM:
Didi Gregorius officially returned to the Yankees' 25-man roster on Friday. To make room for Gregorius, they optioned infielder Thairo Estrada to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The Yankees have also transferred Troy Tulowitzki from the 10-day IL to the 60-day IL as he continues to recover from a calf injury.
June 6, 3:27 PM:
Aaron Judge took on-field batting practice on Thursday for the first time since suffering a strained left oblique on April 20. Aaron Boone said Wednesday that Judge could be back with the Yankees for their London series against Boston on June 29-30.
"I'm taking it day to day," Judge told the Associated Press in Tampa. "The minute I start thinking about when I'm going to come back, when I'm going to do that, then my hopes might either go up or down if I get pushed back or some thing like that. So I'm just focused on getting better every day."
Judge is pain-free but isn't going to rush back, especially with the Yankees performing well despite a rash of injuries.
"Now it's just going through the protocols so I can finally get out there," Judge said. "They haven't been needing me the past couple weeks, so I'm going to take my time and make sure I get healthy and get ready so I can help them down the road."
June 5, 5:21 PM:
Aaron Judge could make his return to the Yankees' lineup in time for the Yankees-Red Sox two-game series in London on June 29 and 30, per Aaron Boone.
Also, Boone said that Troy Tulowitzki was given a few days off by the Yankees to go home and rest his calf injury. Boone has said on Sunday that Tulowitzki was 'pretty much over his injury.'
June 4, 3:25 PM:
Giancarlo Stanton had nine plate appearances in a simulated game in Tampa on Tuesday and also went through running drills as he works his way back from left calf tightness. The slugger took at-bats against Danny Farquhar and Ben Heller before running the arc behind the infield on the grass, a sign rehab games could be next.
June 2, 4:45 PM:
Aaron Judge continues to take the next step in his rehab and hit in the indoor cages at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. He'll head to Tampa as he ramps up his baseball activities and nears participating in rehab games.
Joining Judge in Tampa will be right-hander Dellin Betances and first baseman Greg Bird. Per The Athletic's Lindsey Adler, Bird is still feeling pain in his injured foot but has running on an anti-gravity treadmill and hitting off a tee.
Additionally, manager Aaron Boone said Troy Tulowitzki is "pretty much over his injury" and discussions are being held regarding when he will begin a rehab assignment.
June 1, 4:42 PM:
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said on Saturday that there is a "real chance" Didi Gregorius joins the Yankees on their road trip when the team heads to Cleveland later in the week.
Boone said that Gregorius will play nine innings at shortstop for Scranton on Saturday, DH Sunday, off Monday, and play Tuesday and Wednesday with the hopes of rejoining the Yankees lineup by Thursday against the Indians.
May 31, 4:50 PM:
Giancarlo Stanton is "probably close" to restarting a rehab assignment soon, Aaron Boone said on Friday. Stanton has been running sprints in Tampa as he recovers from a mild calf strain he sustained during his previous minor-league rehab assignment.
May 31, 8:51 AM:
Dellin Betances threw 25 pitches on Thursday and is expected to throw another bullpen session on Sunday before he pitches in a simulated game as he looks to return from a right shoulder impingement, manager Aaron Boone told the New York Post's George A. King III.
May 30, 9:05 PM:
Giancarlo Stanton continues to ramp up his workload. Prior to Thursday's Yankees-Red Sox game getting rained out, Aaron Boone told reporters that Stanton ran sprints and hit in the batting cage on Wednesday and was expected to do the same on Thursday.
May 30, 4:47 PM:
Didi Gregorius is still on track to return as early as next week. On Thursday, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Gregorius will return once he plays back-to-back nine inning games at shortstop.
That won't occur this weekend, Boone said, as the Yankees host the Red Sox for a pivotal three-game series. But the hope is that the shortstop will rejoin the team during the upcoming road trip in either Toronto or Cleveland.
May 28, 5:35 PM:
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre manager Jay Bell said that Gregorius is expected to be with the team for the next six days, which would set up a potential return to the Yankees' lineup on June 4 against the Blue Jays. Gregorius will play seven innings at shortstop on Tuesday, DH Wednesday and play nine innings at shortstop on Thursday.
CC Sabathia also appears close to returning with the Yankees having him slated to pitch on Sunday, according to Anthony Rieber of Newsday.
May 28, 4:40 PM:
Aaron Judge's comeback has begun in earnest with light baseball activities. Judge (oblique) hit off a tee Monday in addition to taking dry swings as part of his swinging progression, manager Aaron Boone said.
On Tuesday, Judge was seen taking fly balls and participating in various running drills before the Yankees played the Padres.
May 27, 4:25 PM:
LHP James Paxton was cleared to come off the IL and is likely to return to the Yankees' rotation on Wednesday against the Padres, Aaron Boone announced. Paxton estimated earlier on Monday that he would throw about 75 pitches in the start.
RHP Luis Severino told reporters he expects to throw from 60 feet either Tuesday or Wednesday and added he has not felt pain in his shoulder or lat in about "20 something days." RHP Dellin Betances threw a bullpen consisting of 25 fastballs off the mound on Monday.
Didi Gregorius will be joining Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday and could be one to two weeks away from returning.
May 26, 4:10 PM
Aaron Judge hopes to begin swinging a bat again soon, he told YES Network before the Yankees' game Sunday in Kansas City.
"I'm feeling really good," Judge said. "We're progressing the way we want to, and it's a good sign getting a chance to get on the field again and throw a little bit. It feels good to be back -- sort of.
"That's what the real test is going to be, swinging. If I'm swinging and I feel no pain, then we'll start moving forward and hopefully I can get back here pretty soon."
May 26, 1:27 PM:
James Paxton (knee) was able to throw his side session, long-toss and complete fielding drills without issue, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. Manager Aaron Boone is hopeful the lefty can slide back into the starting rotation in the coming days against the Padres.
Dellin Betances (shoulder) will throw from a mound Monday, per Boone.
Didi Gregorius' rehab will take him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, where he will need "a week or two" to ramp up, according to Boone.
May 25, 10:28 PM:
Didi Gregorius continues to progress as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery. Saturday night, that progression took him to Single-A Tampa, where he began a rehab assignment. Gregorius went 0-for-3 and played seven innings at shortstop, having a hand in three double plays.
May 24, 3:06 PM:
The Yankees are working out Troy Tulowitzki at second base and third base, in addition to shortstop, as he continues to rehab back from a calf strain, according to The Associated Press in Tampa.
Didi Gregorius will also begin an official rehab assignment with Class A Tampa this weekend while James Paxton threw four innings in an extended Spring Training game. Players who begin rehab assignment can spend up to 20 days until being re-activated, which means Gregorius could be back mid-June.
May 24, 12:51 AM:
Didi Gregorius returned to shortstop in extended spring training on Thursday. He missed Tuesday's game because of dehydration and was a DH on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Dellin Betances threw off of flat ground again Thursday and hasn't yet progressed to throwing off a mound. ... James Paxton is set to throw his sim game Friday. If all goes well, he could rejoin the Yankees' rotation next week.
May 23, 9:10 AM:
The Yankees placed LHP CC Sabathia on the injured list with right knee inflammation after pitching five innings in Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Orioles.
Sabathia started the year on the IL so he could recover from an offseason heart procedure. He returned in mid-April and has gone 3-1 with a 3.48 ERA in eight starts this year.
May 22, 2:47 PM:
Shortstop Didi Gregorius was held out of an extended Spring Training game on Tuesday night due to dehydration. He felt better today, though, as he went 1-for-3 with an opposite-field single and a walk down in Tampa, per Newsday's Erik Boland. The veteran is expected to play again on Thursday.
May 21, 4:30 PM:
Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton could return to the team as soon as this weekend, Aaron Boone said Tuesday. He homered Monday during his first rehab game with High-A Tampa.
Additional updates in the good news department included James Paxton tossing a bullpen in which he felt "next to nothing," according to YES Network's Meredith Marakovits. Meanwhile, Masahiro Tanaka also threw a bullpen session. Aaron Judge stood in the batter's box and tracked pitches for both.
May 20, 8:18 PM:
Stanton homered in his first rehab game with High-A Tampa in his first rehab game on Monday.
Stanton went 1-for-3 and played six innings in right field as he looks to return from a shoulder injury and a biceps strain. Stanton's home run hit off the batter's eye in center field at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
After the game, he said his timing at the plate feels good and that he's "not far" away from returning.
May 20, 5:18 PM:
Outfielder Aaron Judge made some slight progress from a strained oblique that has kept him out since April, playing catch and running on the field before Monday's game, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. Despite the progress, manager Aaron Boone said Judge is not yet ready to swing a bat.
May 20, 2:57 PM:
Didi Gregorius played in his first extended spring training game on Monday, getting two hits in five plate appearances while playing shortstop. Gregorius will play again on Tuesday, when he serves as the DH, according to Erik Boland of Newsday.
May 20. 10:16 AM:
As Aaron Boone noted on Saturday, Giancarlo Stanton will begin his rehab assignment with Single-A Tampa Tarpons on Monday. The Yankees' slugger was placed on the IL with a biceps strain and had a setback with a shoulder strain.
May 19, 12:26 PM:
James Paxton still felt some discomfort in his knee while throwing a bullpen session on Sunday. Because of that discomfort, he will throw another bullpen session on Tuesday instead of jumping back into the rotation, reports Randy Miller of NJAM.
May 19, 11:32 AM:
The Yankees are hopeful that Masahiro Tanaka, who left Saturday's game early after taking a line drive off his shin, will be able to make his next scheduled start, reports Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record.
May 19, 12:21 AM:
James Paxton is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday, and if all goes well he should be cleared to start at some point within the next week. Paxton said he still felt "something" in his left knee during his Friday bullpen, but it's been less and less each time he's thrown.
May 18, 11:27 AM:
Didi Gregorius is scheduled to play shortstop in an extended Spring Training game on Monday, according to Aaron Boone. "It puts a smile on my face," the Yankees manager said. He added that if things continue to progress as is, Gregorius could return to the Yankees sometime in June.
Boone also provided an update on Giancarlo Stanton, who is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Class-A Tampa on Monday.
May 17, 4:24 PM:
After being "pleasantly surprised" that there was no soreness in his injured knee when he woke up Wednesday, James Paxton threw his bullpen on Friday to the liking of manager Aaron Boone. During the session, he would pitch then sit like he would during a game. He did that a couple times, and took some pitching fielding practice, per ESPN's Coley Harvey.
There is hope that if Paxton continues to feel good, he could rejoin the rotation at some point next week.
May 15, 12:43 PM:
James Paxton was "pleasantly surprised" to wake up Wednesday without any soreness or swelling in his injured left knee, and was set to throw a bullpen session on Friday, he told reporters. Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Paxton won't necessarily need a rehab start before returning.
May 14, 5:04 PM:
Giancarlo Stanton's diagnosis has been called a left shoulder strain, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. The Yankees have been pretty vague about what exactly Stanton has been dealing with since his Grad 1 left biceps strain was healed. We did know it was the shoulder that was ailing him, but now we know exactly what it is.
May 14, 11:45 AM:
Giancarlo Stanton's progression from a Grade 1 left biceps strain reached the batter's box Monday. The slugger took live at-bats at extended spring training in Tampa, but there is still no timetable for his return.
May 13, 5:47 PM:
The Yankees placed Miguel Andujar back on the injured list on Monday and are not ruling out surgery from a labrum tear in his right shoulder.
While Andujar missed 28 games from April 1 to May 3, he was 3-for-34 upon his return. Manager Aaron Boone said he thought the injury "is a contributing factor to some of the struggles" in addition to his throwing motion. Surgery would end Andujar's 2019 season.
May 13, 3:57 PM:
James Paxton played catch in the concourse and threw off flat ground in the cage with no issues in his left knee, according to YES Network's Meredith Marakovits. The Yankees will have Paxton throw a bullpen session on Tuesday.
May 13, 3:21 PM:
Just as the Yankees get one player back, another goes down. While the Yankees had Aaron Hicks back in the lineup batting leadoff on Monday against the Orioles, Jonathan Loaisiga was placed on the IL retroactive to Friday with a sore right shoulder after originally being scheduled to start the game. The Yankees recalled right-hander Chance Adams from Triple-A to replace Loaisiga while Luis Cessa gets the start.
Meanwhile, outfielder Mike Tauchman was optioned to Triple-A to make room for Hicks.
May 12, 11:18 AM:
Aaron Hicks will be activated from the IL prior to Monday's game, Yankees manger Aaron Boone said on Sunday.
Hicks got the first hit of his rehab assignment on Saturday by belting a solo home run from the right side in the first inning fo Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Hicks was 0-for-14 on his rehab assignment before the at-bat, but Scranton manager Jay Bell said the night before he could tell Hicks was "close."
May 11, 10:37 PM
Aaron Hicks' rehab stint continued to go poorly on Friday night. The center fielder went 0-for-3 with a walk for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and is now 0-for-14 overall in four rehab games.
The Yankees expect Hicks to return as early as Monday and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre manager Jay Bell believes Hicks is "getting close."
"Certainly, timing wise, he's in the process of getting there," Bell told reporters after the game. "Just seeing balls off the batt and that kind of stuff. He's going to be fine."
May 10, 6:01 PM:
Didi Gregorius (Tommy John surgery) took grounders in Tampa on Friday, and Aaron Boone said the shortstop should begin playing in extended Spring Training games in about 10 days.
May 9, 8:48 PM:
Despite hope that he'd be ready to return for this weekend's series against the Rays in Tampa, Aaron Hicks (back) will play in three more rehab games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this weekend and is scheduled to be activated on Monday, when the Yankees begin a three-game series against the Orioles in the Bronx.
Meanwhile, Aaron Judge (oblique) has yet to take part in baseball activities, but Aaron Boone says he's improving. There are no timetables for Judge or Giancarlo Stanton (shoulder.)
May 8, 3:54 PM:
Aaron Boone gave some good injury update news on Wednesday, as he said the team believes Aaron Hicks could return at some point this weekend. There has been no definitive date set, but there is hope he will be back in the outfield.
Hicks did very well in his extended Spring Training, and though he hasn't gotten a hit in two games with Class A Tampa, the Yankees seem confident he is reaching his benchmarks to come back.
May 6, 10:04 PM:
Giancarlo Stanton, who has been dealing with a shoulder injury ever since he went on the IL with a biceps strain, said he will swing in the batting cage on Tuesday but still doesn't know when he will return.
May 6, 9:36 PM:
Aaron Hicks, who has been out since spring training with a back injury, went 0-for-4 in his first rehab game with High-A Tampa on Monday.

May 6, 3:47 PM:
Dellin Betances began a throwing program on Monday -- making 25 throws from 60 feet -- but said afterwards that he isn't close to returning.
Though he's making progress, Betances told reporters there's "no way" he'll be ready before June.
May 6, 10:46 AM:
The Yankees officially activated Clint Frazier off the 10-day IL on Monday.
The outfielder will rejoin the Yankees after missing two weeks with a left ankle sprain. He was hitting .324/.342/.632 with six home runs and 17 RBI before landing on the IL.
May 5, 8:21 PM:
Outfielder Clint Frazier will return from a two-week stint on the injured list for Monday's game against the Mariners, manager Aaron Boone said after Sunday's rain-shortened win.

- James Paxton will "probably" be out a maximum of three weeks.
- Aaron Hicks could be activated from the IL next weekend.
- Giancarlo Stanton will take batting practice this week.
- Didi Gregorius will complete his throwing program this week.
Cashman also confirmed what was already pretty much known: Luis Severino will not return until after the All-Star break.
Additionally, manager Aaron Boone said Dellin Betances is beginning a throwing program Monday. The expectation is that he can rejoin the team sometime in June.
May 4, 11:07 PM:
The Yankees are still awaiting the results of James Paxton's MRI on his sore left knee, which caused him to leave Friday's game after the third inning. Boone said it is possible they skip his next start.
Greg Bird was in the Yankees clubhouse on Saturday and was no longer wearing a walking boot. Bird, who is on the IL with a left plantar fascia tear, told reporters he has been walking on a treadmill but still no timetable on a possible return. He added that the injury occurred when he felt a pop in his left foot while running.
May 3, 4:30 PM:
Aaron Boone provided some good news on Friday when he revealed Miguel Andujar would be back with the Yankees on Saturday.
He also rattled off updates on the following players:
Clint Frazier: Will play two rehab games with Double-A Trenton this weekend and is expected to be activated off the IL and rejoin the team on Monday.
Aaron Hicks: Taking at-bats. Still needs more at-bats before beginning rehab games. Timetable on Hicks returning to team is about a week to 10 days.
Troy Tulowitzki: Has been shut down for another week after sustaining a mild calf strain. Boone is unsure if it is the same injury getting worse or if this is a new injury.
Giancarlo Stanton: He was at Yankee Stadium for Friday's game but Boone did not have any update to provide.
Aaron Judge: Still no baseball activities but improving in weight room and with range of motion. Boone still not comfortable setting timetable yet.
Didi Gregorius: A few weeks away from beginning any sort of rehab assignment. Boone categorized his progress as "best case scenario" so far.
May 2, 12:35 PM:
Outfielder Aaron Hicks has three hits, including a double and a home run, in an extended spring training game on Thursday, a day after he went 1-for-3 with two walks. Hicks also had an outfield assist as he looks to return from a back injury that has kept him out since spring training.
May 2, 10:18 AM:
Infielder DJ LeMahieu, who left Sunday's game and missed the Yankees' past two games with right knee inflammation, believes he is "really close" to returning and could come back as soon as Friday, according to Newsday's Erik Boland. He was running on the field before Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.
May 1, 7:28 PM:
Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was removed from his rehab game with Class A Tampa Tarpons on Wednesday night after experiencing "tightness" in his left calf, per Boland. Though it was said to be just a "precaution," manager Aaron Boone noted he was hit in the leg by a pitch last night, but finished the game.
Tulowitzki was already down rehabbing a calf strain, so hopefully this isn't a setback on that initial ailment.

Yankees 3B Miguel Andujar is close to returning to the team, but his rehab start with the Tampa Tarpons didn't go that well. He was 0-for-4 with two popouts, a groundout, and fly out over seven innings. He also committed two errors in the field at third base.
That's not what New York wants to see from Andujar, who is working back from a partially torn labrum.

Yankees second baseman DJ LeMahieu is day-to-day after an MRI revealed right knee inflammation. LeMahieu, who suffered a bruised knee on Friday after fouling a ball off his right leg, left Sunday's game in the third inning.
X-rays came back negative on Sunday, and Monday's MRI revealed inflammation. Neither he nor manager Aaron Boone were concerned about LeMahieu joining the crowded injured list, and LeMahieu was hopeful he would play Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

It was revelaed that Stanton's strained biceps had healed. But that good news was canceled out by the bad news that Stanton was dealing with a new shoulder injury.
According to SNY's Andy Martino, the new shoulder injury is only expected to cost Stanton an additional week.
Stanton, who received a cortisone shot in his shoulder and is resting for a few days, said on Wednesday that his return would be delayed due to feeling some "residual stuff" in his left shoulder, according to the New York Times' James Wagner.
