  • Yankees' Trent Grisham: Drawing start in series finale

    Grisham will start in center field and bat ninth in Thursday's game against the Royals.

    Grisham's streak of five straight starts in the outfield came to an end Tuesday, but he'll re-enter the lineup Thursday following back-to-back absences while Giancarlo Stanton receives a day off. Now that Juan Soto is back in action after recently missing time with a forearm injury, Grisham should serve as the Yankees' fourth outfielder in most games.

  • Yankees' Jose Trevino: On bench, but getting bulk of work

    Trevino is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals.

    Trevino is on the bench for a day game after a night game, but he seems to have usurped Austin Wells as the Yankees' preferred option at catcher. He's started in three of the previous four games -- all against right-handed pitchers -- while going 4-for-10 with a home run and five RBI to bring his OPS up to .737 for the season. Though Wells has picked up the pace at the plate over the past month, his .620 OPS on the campaign still sits more than 100 points behind Trevino's mark.

  • Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Taking seat Thursday

    Stanton is out of the lineup for Thursday's game in Kansas City.

    Stanton slugged home runs in the second and third games of the series but has bookended the power output with days off in the first and now the fourth games. Aaron Judge will get a day out of the outfield and serve as the Yankees' designated hitter Thursday while Stanton rests.

  • Yankees' Enmanuel Tejeda: Makes return from IL

    Single-A Tampa reinstated Tejeda (shoulder) from its 7-day injured list Tuesday.

    Tejeda made his return to the Tampa lineup in Wednesday's 7-6 win over Clearwater, starting at designated hitter while going 1-for-3 with a walk, two runs and two stolen bases. The 19-year-old had been out of action since early May due to a shoulder injury but was cleared to rejoin Tampa after completing a five-game rehab assignment in the rookie-level Florida Complex League.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Swipes 13th bag

    Volpe went 2-for-5 with a run and a stolen base Wednesday against Kansas City in an 11-5 victory.

    Volpe led off the game with a single and then stole second base before later coming around to score. The theft was his 13th of the campaign, pushing him past the halfway point as he seeks to surpass last season's total of 24 steals. Volpe has reached base at a much higher clip this season -- he's currently posting a .335 OBP compared to last year's .283 mark.

  • Yankees' Jose Trevino: Slugs three-run homer

    Trevino went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in an 11-5 win against the Royals on Wednesday.

    Trevino capped a huge first inning for the Yankees with his three-run blast that made the score 6-0. It was the backstop's first homer since May 18 and ended a stretch of 13 games without any extra-base hits. Trevino has been pretty solid offensively overall this season, though, slashing .272/.321/.416 with six homers, 23 RBI and 17 runs through 138 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Goes deep in rout

    Torres went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, an additional run and a walk Wednesday in an 11-5 victory against Kansas City.

    Torres further busted open the game for the Yankees with a three-run shot off Daniel Lynch in the seventh inning. The long ball was his second in June and his sixth overall this season. Four of the long balls have come over his past 21 contests after Torres went deep just twice over his initial 49 games.

  • Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Homers in second straight game

    Stanton went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run Wednesday in an 11-5 win over the Royals.

    Stanton flexed his power with a 449-foot two-run blast in the fifth inning. It was his second straight game with a home run after an ugly weekend set against the Dodgers during which he went 0-for-14 with seven punchouts. Stanton is up to 17 homers and 40 RBI on the campaign along with a .233/.288/.491 slash line.

  • Yankees' Cody Poteet: Goes 5.1 frames in victory

    Poteet (3-0) earned the win over Kansas City on Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two batters over 5.1 innings.

    Poteet was staked to a 6-0 lead after one inning and cruised through five scoreless frames before the Royals scored their first two runs in the sixth. The right-hander had plenty of cushion at that point and ended up with his third victory across four starts. Poteet has completed six innings just once in those outings, but he's put up a great 2.14 ERA and 1.05 WHIP despite a not-so-great 13:7 K:BB over 21 innings.

  • Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Next rehab start set

    Cole (elbow) will make a third rehab a start Friday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Max Goodman of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    The right-hander threw 57 pitches over 4.2 innings during his second rehab outing Sunday, and he'll move up to the Triple-A level as he continues building up his workload. Manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday, "we'll see" when asked if it will be Cole's final rehab start, so it's possible he's cleared to make his season debut for the Yankees next week.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Yankees transferred Berti (calf) to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Berti was given a recovery timeline of 6-to-8 weeks after he suffered a high-grade left calf strain in late May, so the move to the 60-day IL will move back his minimum absence only a couple weeks. DJ LeMahieu is operating as New York's primary third baseman while Oswaldo Cabrera serves as a reserve infielder.

  • Yankees' Jasson Dominguez: Activated, optioned to Triple-A

    The Yankees reinstated Dominguez (elbow) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday and optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Dominguez has been on the injured list all season while recovering from a Tommy John procedure he underwent in September, and though he now appears to have made a full recovery, he will remain in Triple-A for now. The 21-year-old outfield prospect has played in 20 total games with three of New York's minor-league affiliates, slashing .368/.415/.658 with six home runs and 13 RBI in 82 plate appearances. If he continues at his current pace, a return to the majors is likely to come at some point, though he would have to compete against Alex Verdugo, Aaron Judge and Juan Soto for playing time in the Yankees' outfield. Jon Berti (calf) was transferred to the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Yankees' Austin Wells: Resting Wednesday

    Wells isn't in the Yankees' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.

    Wells will take a seat Wednesday after launching his second home run of the season during Tuesday's win. Jose Trevino will start behind the plate instead and bat eighth.

  • Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Mashes 16th homer

    Stanton went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run and an additional RBI in Tuesday's 10-1 win against Kansas City.

    Stanton produced an RBI on a fielder's choice in the first inning and added a 446-foot solo blast in the seventh. It was a positive bounce-back after the slugger went 0-for-14 with seven strikeouts during the weekend's three-game series versus the Dodgers. Stanton's .229 batting average on the season isn't ideal, but he's tied for ninth in the league with 16 homers and has added 38 RBI along with 29 runs through 245 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Aaron Judge: Stays red-hot

    Judge went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an RBI single during Tuesday's 10-1 win over Kansas City.

    Judge launched his fourth homer of his last three starts, plating Juan Soto on a two-run shot in the seventh inning. The center fielder has also generated multiple hits in four straight games and eight of his last 10 contests. Lost in the mix of his absurd power streak -- which has seen his ISO surpass .400 -- Judge is striking out at a 24.1 percent clip this season, which would be a career low if it stands.

  • Yankees' Austin Wells: Launches first homer since April

    Wells went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run during Tuesday's 10-1 win over the Royals.

    Wells extended the Yankees' advantage to 6-0 in the fourth inning after he tagged Brady Singer for a three-run home run. The long ball was Wells' second of the campaign and his first since April 30. Wells has been splitting catching duties with Jose Trevino this season almost 50/50, though Trevino has been swinging the better bat thus far. Wells is slashing .211/.295/.325 with 14 runs and 10 RBI over 132 plate appearances, while Trevino exceeds him with a .264/.316/.388 line with 16 runs and 20 RBI over 134 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Marcus Stroman: Rebounds with win

    Stroman (6-2) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing four hits and three walks with one strikeout across 5.2 scoreless innings against Kansas City.

    After allowing a season-high five runs in his last start, Stroman blanked the Royals on Tuesday. However, he struggled with command, finding the strike zone on just 54 of his 102 pitches while issuing three walks. The 33-year-old has generated five combined strikeouts in his last three starts, a stretch in which he's walked seven batters and hit two more. On the year, Stroman owns a 2.82 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP across 79.2 innings. He's lined up to face the Red Sox at Fenway on Sunday.
