Chris Carelli, SNY.TV  Twitter | About Me | ArchivesThe Yankees, behind stellar pitching and plenty of offense, beat the Red Sox, 8-0, at Yankee Stadium. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game…

1 ) James Paxton was absolutely electric tonight. It was the first time he went to the mound in pinstripes, and just unleashed on the opponent. Paxton surely wasn't tipping any pitches, throwing 110 on the night, 80 of which were four-seam fastballs. Those fastballs averaged 97 mph with the fastest topping out at 99.2 mph. Paxton's final line - 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 12 K - could not have come at a better time for the Yankees. The Yanks traded for Paxton with this kind of a performance in mind, and hopefully for New York he builds on it.

While Greg Bird became the latest member to join the Yankees' already crowded Injured List on Tuesday, manager Aaron Boone addressed the other players and their progress ahead of tonight's contest with the Red Sox. 

Among the 12 members (including Bird), Miguel Andujar's status (shoulder) is still in question. Boone told reporters that he continues his program, which saw an increase in throwing as well as his normal hitting. While Andujar seems to be responding well to the treatment -- he hasn't had a setback -- it is still too early to make the determination for surgery to repair the shoulder tear or not. 

Other than Andujar, Aaron Hicks and Troy Tulowitzki appear to be progressing nicely. Hicks hit off a tee and soft toss as well as throwing and running before the game. He should be taking part in batting practice on Wednesday or Thursday.

For Aaron Hicks, the good news is that he's resumed limited baseball activities. The bad news is that exactly when he'll return to game action still appears foggy. 

Hicks has begun throwing, running, hitting off a tee and taking soft-tosses. Prior to the Yankees' game against the White Sox on Sunday, he stopped by the clubhouse so the team could see him up close.

He also guessed that he could begin taking on-field batting practice in about a week. Hicks has been out since Spring Training with a back issue that led to a pair of cortisone shots. Beyond the possibility of batting practice, a timetable for Hicks' return remains unknown.

Injured Yankees reliever Dellin Betances (shoulder impingement) isn't expected to return to the team until at least six or seven weeks from now, but he felt relieved on Saturday after receiving a cortisone shot. 

"There's relief just because there's nothing structurally wrong," Betances said, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. "I know with this shot that in three weeks, with rest, I know everything will be right and I'm excited to help the team out and finish this season."

Seven weeks from this point brings us to the early part of June, when the Yankees hope to have many of their other walking wounded back, including Aaron Hicks, Giancarlo Stanton, Gary Sanchez, and Troy Tulowitzki. Miguel Andujar could also be back before then if he is able to avoid season-ending surgery

With news that Gary Sanchez was placed on the 10-day injured list on Friday, the Yankees now have a major-league leading 12 players on the IL. 

The list consists of seven position players and five pitchers, although CC Sabathia will return to the team on Saturday, but it is still half the roster that is sidelined. 

Just how significant are the players missing time with injury?

The Yankees are giving catcher Gary Sanchez as much rest as he needs so he avoids a significant trip to the injured list like last season.

Sanchez, who was a designated hitter on Tuesday and pinch hit Wednesday, has been dealing with tightness in his legs for the past few days. This injury is not related to him taking a foul tip in the groin in Monday's game, however manager Aaron Boone said he would rather play it safe, especially with the Yankees off Thursday.

"With the off day [Thursday] and having a lot of guys down it is probably best to try and grab a couple of days here while we can," Boone said, according to the New York Post's George A. King III. "Just trying to be proactive. I want to make sure we are being smart about this and do all we can to keep him healthy. Making sure this doesn't become an issue."

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez needed 92 at-bats in 21 games last season to hit six home runs.

He needed 60 fewer at-bats this season.

Sanchez hit three home runs in Sunday's 15-3 win over the Orioles to move into a tie with the Dodgers' Cody Bellinger for the MLB lead and take sole possession of the American League lead.

Injured Yankees ace Luis Severino, who is progressing in a deliberate way as he works his way back from rotator cuff inflammation, is still not ready to throw from the mound, manager Aaron Boone said Sunday, according to The Athletic's Lindsey Adler.

Adler noted that the Yankees will let Severino decide when he's ready to progress to throwing from the mound. 

Boone said earlier this month that he is optimistic Severino will take the next step soon, with that step being graduating from long-tossing to the next phase of rehab. Severino took his first big step toward a return on March 20, when he threw on flat ground...

The Yankees beat the Orioles, 6-4, at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Saturday night. >> Box score

Five things to know about Saturday's game..

1) Trying to make up for a poor first start of the season, J.A. Happ hurled just 4.1 innings of two-run ball. Happ allowed five hits, walked two and struck out five. He got stronger as the game moved along, only having trouble with Trey Mancini (homer and a double) along the way. Unfortunately, that was enough for Yankees manager Aaron Boone to remove the left-hander when Mancini stepped to the plate for the third time in the fifth inning. Happ is being relied on to log innings and he has failed to do so thus far this season...

Coming into the new year, Yankees C Gary Sanchez has the goal of proving last season was an enigma. So far, things are trending in the right direction for The Kraken. 

Over the first seven games of the season, Sanchez has had his woes like the rest of these Yankees. He already has four throwing errors from behind the plate -- an area of his defensive game that was never a question. But he also made a nice snap throw down to first on Thursday to pick off the over-eager Rio Ruiz after a nice block on a slider. 

Though the glove needs improvement, Yankees fans are more concerned abou Sanchez' showing more production in the batter's box this season. In 2018, he hit a ghastly .186/.291/.406 with 18 homers and 53 RBI in 89 games as he couldn't find his groove all season.

Having played the rebuilding Orioles and Tigers to start the season, the Yankees might have believed to be much better than 3-4 at the moment. Injuries are part of the issue (some of which should have been expected), but performance has not lived up to expectations in some cases.

There are 155 games left in the season, but it's difficult to avoid wondering if the current feeling about the club would be different had they made some different decisions this offseason, including...

A stronger pursuit of Patrick Corbin

As the week dragged on and the carnage mounted, it was easy to look around the field during a Yankees game and lament all the key players who were missing:

Giancarlo Stanton. Aaron Hicks. Miguel Andujar. Luis Severino. Dellin Betances. Not to mention the OG injured Yankee of 2019, Didi Gregorius.

Those stars are missed terribly, and the loss of Troy Tulowitzki so early in his comeback doesn't help, either. But it's also easy to forget that several highly talented players remain on the field and must now step up to save the Yankees season. Last year's rookie sensation Gleyber Torres is not least among them.

With his two home runs sparking a Yankees rally in Thursday's 8-4 win over the OriolesGleyber Torres joined Yankees lore.

Writes ESPN's Coley Harvey, Torres became the youngest player in franchise history to go 4-for-4 or better since Derek Jeter, and became the fourth-youngest player to have four hits and four RBIs in a game since 1920. The only Yankees who were younger: Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and Lou Gehrig.

"Gleyber Day. It was impressive," outfielder Aaron Judge said, according to Harvey. "He came up big in certain situations where we needed someone to come up with a big hit for us. He was the catalyst of this win for us."

The length of Giancarlo Stanton's absence from the Yankees' lineup became clearer Tuesday. 

According to Jon Heyman, the Yankees hope Stanton will be back in three weeks. The team placed him on the 10-day injured list Monday with a Grade 1 left biceps strain.

Stanton suffered the injury Sunday against the Orioles during his third at-bat of the rain-delayed game, he said.

New York Yankees placed Giancarlo Stanton and Miguel Andujar both on the IL. Sweeny Murti explains how they can replace those power bats.

Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar could need season-ending shoulder surgery after he suffered a partially torn right labrum, manager Aaron Boone said after Monday's game.

The Yankees placed Andujar on the 10-day injured list on Monday afternoon, hours after the team announced outfielder Giancarlo Stanton would be shut down for at least 10 days with a biceps injury.

Andujar, 24, injured his shoulder diving back into third base. New York recalled Tyler Wade from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take his place on the 25-man roster.

It wasn't supposed to happen, but the Yankees traveled to the Bronx from Tampa with both Luke Voit and Greg Bird on the roster. It would've been manager Aaron Boone's hardest decision if he had to choose one over the other.

Luckily, he didn't have to as both Voit and Bird found their way on to the Yankees' Opening Day lineup. And they didn't disappoint.

In his first at-bat with two runners on, Voit cranked a three-run homer to Monument Park to make the Yankee Stadium crowd go berserk, and put the Bombers on the board first. Voit also worked two walks.

The Yankees officially placed outfielder Aaron Hicks, starting pitcher Luis Severino and several others on the injured list to start the season.

New York placed six players on the IL, including Dellin Betances (right shoulder impingement), Jacoby Ellsbury (left hip surgery recovery), shortstop Didi Gregorius (Tommy John surgery recovery) and RHP Ben Heller (Tommy John surgery recovery).

Hicks suffered a lower back injury and has not yet started baseball activities. He has been out since March 2, and manager Aaron Boone said he does not have a definitive timetable for Hicks' return.

It may be a little while longer before Aaron Hicks returns. 

The Yankees center fielder, who is battling a sore lower back, has still not started baseball activities, according to manager Aaron Boone. 

"He said he's feeling really good," Boone said on Monday. "Just kind of going through core strengthening stuff right now. So, I don't know what the next couple of days are, but I feel like it's out of there now. Just make sure to go and then baseball activities. But I don't have a day for you on when he's starting that."

Aaron Hicks had a second cortisone shot in his back over the weekend, and he declared himself pain-free Tuesday. 

The next step for the outfielder, who has already ruled himself out for Opening Day next week, told reporters the next step in his rehab process will be to take swings without any pain. 

After Hicks' first cortisone shot, the pain dissipated but returned when he started taking cuts again. This time around, he wants to be sure that same issue won't repeat itself.

Aaron Hicks revealed Sunday his sore back will cause him to miss Opening Day and begin the season on the Injured List. 

But Hicks' injury has left manager Aaron Boone and Yankees management with a conundrum regarding the entire construction of the roster.

Several factors will play into who ultimately sees the bulk of reps in Hicks' absence, including how many pitchers the team decides to roster on Opening Day and whether Clint Frazier and Tyler Wade are worthy of possibly seeing significant playing time in the outfield, according to George A. King III of the New York Post

Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks has officially declared himself out for Opening Day. 

The 29-year-old told ESPN's Coley Harvey that he received a second cortisone shot for his lower back injury on Sunday but expects to return for the Bombers' second series against the Tigers on April 1. 

GM Brian Cashman cast doubt on the possibility of Hicks being ready by Opening Day on Friday, saying that the outfielder would probably need some more at-bats before he can re-join the team by then.

New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman revealed Luis Severino and Aaron Hicks will start the season on the IL. Sweeny Murti analyzes the impact.

The Yankees are going to be without their ace for at least the first month of the season. 

General manager Brian Cashman announced on Friday that the best-case scenario for Luis Severino would be for a May return, confirming what an orthopedic surgeon told SNY earlier this month. 

Severino, 25, is still in the midst of his two-week shutdown period after feeling soreness in his shoulder and would have to start his throwing from scratch once he resumes.

The Yankees will be without Aaron Hicks for at least the opening series of the regular season due to back stiffness that has required two cortisone shots. With back issues, reducing the pain while getting up to game speed is difficult and can often linger well beyond the original diagnosis.

The Yankees will have to make a decision on who will take the newly vacant roster spot and they have two choices: Clint Frazier or Tyler Wade.

Which player makes the most sense?

Dealing with a lingering back issue, Aaron Hicks consulted with doctors Monday and received a cortisone shot

The Yankees outfielder will rest for the next few days before resuming baseball activities. Hicks maintained he is still on track for Opening Day, but the season opens in about two weeks.

Hicks experienced back stiffness last week and has been on the shelf since. How much longer he'll stay inactive remains to be seen, but it appears he won't be in the lineup until this weekend at the earliest.

As spring training inches toward games that count, contract extension season dwindles away.

The Yankees have shown that they are more than willing to offer extensions to their core players, inking Luis Severino to a four-year, $40 million extension and Aaron Hicks to a seven-year, $70 million deal.

The Yankees have reportedly discussed a contract extension with Dellin Betances, and there are clear reasons to view the right-handed reliever as an extension candidate.

As Clint Frazier competes for a spot on the Yankees' Opening Day roster, manager Aaron Boone said he believes the one thing Frazier needs is consistent playing time.

"He needs to play every day,'' Boone said Thursday, according to the New York Daily News' Kristie Ackert. "That doesn't necessarily mean they don't come here. We expect him to impact our club this year."

Though Frazier, who is 3-for-18 with one RBI through eight Grapefruit League games this spring, said he is healthy from his concussion recovery, a spot on New York's 25-man roster in three weeks is not guaranteed.

Yankees first baseman Greg Bird is slashing .389/.500/.722 with one home run and three RBIs through eight spring training games.

Teammate Luke Voit is hitting .286/.412/.714 with two home runs and five RBIs, and has noticeably improved his defense, through eight Grapefruit League games as well.

Yet manager Aaron Boone isn't ready to declare a favorite in the Yankees' first base competition, for which there is likely only one spot on the 25-man roster.

Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks was out of Tuesday's lineup against the Braves because of back stiffness. Hicks was expected to be in Tuesday's lineup after not playing in either of the Yankees' split-squad games on Sunday. 

According to MLB.com's Brian Hoch, Hicks said Tuesday he won't resume taking batting practice or appearing in games for several more days and is still feeling pain in his lower back, but his MRI revealed no concerns.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives: The Yankees saw something in Aaron Hicks and caught the Twins at the perfect time to swoop in for the mere cost of a player that's hanging in the game as a backup catcher.

With Hicks firmly putting himself on the map last season, he's looking to elevate his game one last level -- to elite status. The Yankees, who signed Hicks to a seven-year, $70 million extension Monday, clearly believe Hicks has the capacity reach that standing among the game's best.

"He has more gas in his tank, he has more mountains to climb," Yankees GM Brian Cashman said. "We're excited by a player who came here that wasn't a finished product and had a lot of upside. We engaged him on a lot of levels about the talent that we thought he possessed."

After being rained out on Tuesday, the Yankees (2-1) hit the road to face the Tigers (2-2) in Lakeland.

Yankees Notes...

Gleyber Torres is set for his first start at shortstop this spring after playing twice at second base. He would be the next man up at short should new signing Troy Tulowitzki get hurt as Didi Gregorius continues to recover from Tommy John surgery. Both Luke Voit and Greg Bird are in the lineup as they compete for the first-base job.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone called center fielder Aaron Hicks "the most underrated player in the game" over the weekend.

Now he and the Yankees hope he can be one of the franchise's cornerstone players into the next decade.

"This is where I want to be," Hicks said on WFAN to Mike Francesa on Monday afternoon, hours after he signed a seven-year, $70 million contract extension that will keep him in pinstripes until at least 2025.

Big picture for Hicks' extension 00:00:42
The Yankees signed Aaron Hicks to a 7-year extension, Andy Martino takes a look at what the deal means for the Yankees long term.

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter | All through the offseason, as we tracked Bryce Harper and Manny Machado's free agencies, the Yankees' couldn't have been more clear about their current philosophy. It's just that many in the public and fan base didn't want to believe it.

Now, with Aaron Hicks joining Luis Severino as valued members of the core locked into relatively team-friendly extensions, the Yanks are actively executing the plan that they decided months ago to pursue. After years spent building a team of young, affordable players, Brian Cashman and his staff is betting on that group, rather than on big-ticket free agents.

And they're not done yet. According to major league sources, the Yankees are also interested in finding common ground with Didi Gregorius and Dellin Betances. The team is not close to an agreement with either player, but sees value in them, both in terms of production and clubhouse presence, and will continue to explore agreements...

The Yankees have signed Aaron Hicks to a seven-year extension, the team announced Monday. The extension is worth $70 million, reports Jack Curry of the YES Network.

The deal replaces the one-year, $6 million deal Hicks agreed to before the season to avoid arbitration, runs through the 2025 season, and contains a club option for the 2026 season, the team said. 

The deal is a well-below market one, which is an enormous coup for the Yankees...

Brett Gardner, the longest-tenured Yankees player, debuted in 2008 and won a World Series in 2009. 

Though he and the Yankees haven't won a World Series since, he's optimistic in their chances in 2019.

"I think we're better this year than we were (in 2018)," Gardner told reporters on Thursday morning. "Obviously the season hasn't started. But at this point, I think we've got a better group of guys in place than we've had -- maybe than I've ever seen."

TAMPA, Fla. -- It was a day of transition for the Yankees at Steinbrenner Field on Saturday, with glimpses of both the past and future -- and questions about whether the Yankees can hold their new core together.

The marquee event was an afternoon news conference in which CC Sabathia announced his plans to retire at the end of the season. Sabathia was a key member of the Yankees' most recent championship team, and a link between the Derek Jeter/Andy Pettitte/Jorge Posada era and the Aaron Judge/Gary Sanchez/Luis Severino group...

Aaron Judge wants free agent Bryce Harper to "make the right choice" in selecting a team. But he's willing to make that choice easier by voluntarily opting to change positions for the outfielder. 

With one week to go until pitchers and catchers report for spring training, Harper is still shopping the market for the right team. The Yankees are not totally out of the running for the MVP, but they're not showing signs of landing him either.

So Judge, the implied spokesperson of the Yankees, took matters in his own hands during an interview with TMZ...

All along, attached speculation to the Yankees potential signing of Manny Machado has come with Miguel Andujar enduring the largest impact of the move - a trade out of New York.

However, there is a distinct chance that the Yankees hold onto Andujar - at least in the short term - should they sign Machado and consequently unavoidable fallout to the rest of the roster. The Yankees will not trade Andujar for just anyone. The starting pitchers worth Andujar's talent might not necessarily be available in trade and certain clubs may not be willing to deal with New York.

Keeping Andujar presents some issues (not all necessarily bad) for the Yankees.

"Laying in the weeds" just doesn't cut it when describing the Yankees and any pursuit of the offseason's top free agent prizes.

Instead, this Yankees team -- the Evil Empire -- is positioned in a galaxy far, far away, potentially readying the Death Star to blast into hyper-speed where it concerns the top free agents this winter.

Friday is non-tender deadline day, and like the Mets, the Yankees have nine players who are eligible for salary arbitration.

While Yankees GM Brian Cashman will surely offer arbitration to the majority of the list, there is one who could be looking at free agency: Tommy Kahnle.

The righty reliever is projected to earn $1.5 million after making $1.3 million this past season, according to MLBTradeRumors

Boras, MLB's top agent, took some time at the GM Meetings in Carlsbad, CA to speak to reporters about a variety of subjects from the state of the MLB to his very intriguing 25-year-old All-Star. 

Harper is in the prime of his career, and is expected to see a megadeal with a new team before the season begins. Boras explained why Harper's situation is so rare due to his status as a "generational player."

The Yankees have nine arbitration-eligible players this offseason. Six of them are locks to be offered arbitration, and three of them have a more uncertain Yankees future.

According to MLB Trade Rumors, here's what they're projected to make if offered arbitration, and what the rest of their contract situation is. We'll first tackle the locks to be offered arbitration, followed by the question marks...

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter | As the Yankees wrapped their pro scouting meetings last week and determined a preliminary offseason strategy, a pursuit of free agent outfielder Bryce Harper was not part of the plan, according to major league sources.

As with Manny Machado, who the Yankees will monitor but not likely pursue aggressively, ownership could step in and mandate a Harper signing. The Steinbrenner family just watched the Boston Red Sox win yet another World Series, and might be in the mood to load up on superstars.

But the Yankees' early feeling is that Harper simply doesn't fit. While they could use the lefthanded bat in a righty-heavy lineup, they feel that their outfield and DH spots are spoken for...

The Yankees are on the brink of elimination after an embarrassing 16-1 Red Sox rout in ALDS Game 3 at Yankee Stadium, the most lopsided defeat in their postseason history.

Yankees Notes

The Yankees have their backs against the wall after Boston made Aaron Boone regret sending a struggling (and possibly tardyLuis Severino back on the mound for the fourth inning. The Sox also pummeled reliever Lance Lynn in that seven-run frame, as former Yankee Nathan Eovaldi went on to shut down his former team, while Brock Holt became the first player ever to hit for the cycle in the postseason...

Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks and manager Aaron Boone are both hopeful the 29-year-old outfielder will return to the lineup for Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday after he aggravated a hamstring injury in Game 1.

"I feel good," Hicks told reporters on Sunday. "When I woke up today, things are just going well. When I was walking around, everything felt pretty much normal."

Hicks, who hit .248 with 27 home runs and 79 RBIs in the regular season, left Friday's Game 1 with a hamstring injury and did not play in Game 2. An MRI came back clean, however the Yankees want to be cautious.
