Yanks win streak hits 7 00:01:36
Boone, Torres, Paxton and Judge on the potent Yankees lineup and Judge's return

Cameron Maybin stayed on the Yankees' roster when Aaron Judge was activated, but his stay hit a road bump on Friday.

Starting the game in left field, Maybin left the game against the Astros after the third inning. He had singled earlier in the frame and came around to score on a Gary Sanchez home run.

The Yankees later announced that the veteran left the game with a strained left calf and was going for an MRI.

The Yankees made it official on Tuesday, activating Giancarlo Stanton to join the team for the first time since the opening days of the 2019 season. And the corresponding move for his arrival was OF Mike Tauchman being sent back down to Triple-A, which was made last night following the win over the Rays. 

So two roster moves have been made for the Yankees, which includes Clint Frazier being sent down in correspondence with Edwin Encarnacion joining the team via trade. Now the final puzzle piece will be put into place when Aaron Judge is finally activated after rehabbing his oblique injury. 

But who will be purged to allow him room on the 25-man roster?

The Yankees' lineup is on the verge of returning to full health. Let that sink in for a second, as you simultaneously look at their 43-27, AL East-leading record that shows how well they've persevered through the plethora of injuries that have plagued them all season. 

Giancarlo Stanton will be the latest Yankee to return on Tuesday, with Aaron Judge targeting a comeback at some point during this week's homestand. 

And if those power bats weren't enough, GM Brian Cashman added another slugger to the group in Edwin Encarnacion, the AL leader in homers (21) that the Mariners traded away during their sell-off.

With four days left in The Primaries for 2019 MLB All-Star Game voting, the Yankees are still represented very well. 

Gary Sanchez and Luke Voit are sitting in first for their respective positions. Sanchez is a lock for the final catcher vote with 1,357,340 votes, and James McCann -- his closest competition -- second with 580,394 votes. Voit is at the top with 696,164 votes compared to C.J. Cron's 586,303 votes in second place.

Just like the last update, Gio Urshela and DJ LeMahieu are also at the top of the list. Urshela, who many would view as a surprising vote, is second in third base voting behind Alex Bregman. The Astros' third baseman is well in the lead with 1.3 million votes compared to Urshela's 502,614 votes.

The Yankees optioned outfielder Clint Frazier to the minors to make room for Edwin Encarnacion.

Frazier, 24, was slashing .283/.330/.513 with 11 home runs and 34 RBIs, taking on a starting role after the Yankees dealt with injuries to Aaron JudgeGiancarlo Stanton and Aaron Hicks in the first month of the season.

"It's a tough pill to swallow," Frazier told reporters after Sunday's game. "It's never fun, especially with how much I've felt like I've felt like I've contributed to this team."

For the first time this season, the Yankees are inching towards full health. With the impending returns of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, the Yankees' lineup will finally be maximized at full strength.

However, because Judge and Stanton are obviously everyday players, that means that a roster shakeup is in order. How will the Yankees manage their roster with their two All-Stars returning to the lineup?

The Yankees (40-24, T-1st in AL East) take on the Mets (32-33, 5.0 GB in NL East) in the first game of a two-game Subway Series on Monday at 7:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees notes

Over his last 13 games, Gleyber Torres is hitting just .196 with two home runs and seven RBI. ... Luke Voit, currently the leading vote-getter among American League first basemen for the All-Star game, is slashing .308/.400/.538 with two home runs and four RBIs over his last 10 games. ... The Yankees' bullpen has the third-worst ERA (6.59) in June, while the Mets' 8.05 bullpen ERA is the highest in that span.

With the 2019 MLB All-Star Game voting underway, the primary results for the American League have been released, and there are a few Yankees that have made the list. However, some may come as a bit of a surprise. 

First, let's look at two players that don't come as much of a surprise for the Yanks in Gary Sanchez and Luke Voit. Sanchez is having a bounce-back season, and his 737,107 votes thus far show the fans recognizing that. He leads all AL catchers by a longshot, with James McCann behind him with 289,475 votes. 

Voit, on the other hand, is neck and neck with C.J. Cron -- another player looking for his first All-Star Game bid. Voit leads with 393,356 votes compared to Cron's 302,586 total. The slugging first baseman won the job out of spring training, and has proven all season that last year's hot streak wasn't a fluke.

The Yankees lost to the Indians, 5-2, at Progressive Field on Friday night. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Friday's game

1) Domingo German is trying to develop while pitching in the big leagues. It was working for his first several starts, but of late he's been missing spots and major league batters are making him pay. German allowed just two home runs in his first seven starts, but in his last six outings he's given up 10 homers. With German likely on an innings limit for the season, it is plausible that the Yankees could shift him to the bullpen once the club pulls off an expected trade for starting pitching.

Let's play, "Name that Yankee!"

Can you name the Yankee who has played all but four games this year and is top-five on the team in home runs, hits and extra-base hits while leading the team in steals?

Could it be Gleyber Torres? Aaron Hicks might've been a good guess. Maybe even Clint Frazier.

The Yankees beat to the Blue Jays, 6-2, at Rogers Centre. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Thursday's game

1) J.A. Happ has been incredibly and disappointingly inconsistent this season, but he stepped up as the stopper for the Yankees Thursday helping to end a three-game losing. Happ went seven innings (102 pitches, 69 strikes), allowing just one run on four hits to pick up his sixth win of the season. Happ now owns a 4.48 ERA.

The Yankees could let Didi Gregorius get more minor-league at-bats before activating him from the injured list for Friday's game in Cleveland, but they feel he's ready to go.

Gregorius, who has not played yet this season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in October, is just 3-for-25 over six games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after going 2-for-7 with High-A Tampa.

"Because Didi has had a ton of at-bats if you go back to his extended spring training where he was able to rack up live at-bats," Aaron Boone said, per NJ.com. "Now obviously between playing A-ball and Triple-A, he's essentially had a spring training and then some of at-bats.

Yankees notes

Despite not making himself available to reporters after misplaying three balls in right field in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Red Sox, Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier owned up to his mistakes and said he is continuing to work on his defensive skills.

"It's tough to cost the team runs and a potential win, especially when playing at home against Boston," Frazier told ESPN's Coley Harvey.

Frazier committed one fielding error and misjudged two more balls, each leading to run-scoring plays, in right field on Sunday.

LeMahieu roped an RBI-double off the wall in the third inning and then a solo home run in the fifth inning. LeMahieu, who also made another stellar play at second base, is hitting a fabulous .317 on the season.

As everyone around baseball knows, the story of the New York Yankees season has been injuries. As of Wednesday, there are 14 players occupying the Injured List. Nevertheless, the team sits at 36-19 atop the AL East, and they've gotten to this point thanks to a handful of smart roster moves.

Signing DJ LeMahieu

Many thought that LeMahieu, a career .299 hitter, would see a dip in production in a full-time role away from the hitter-friendly Coors Field. He's quickly dispelled that notion en route to becoming one of the Yankees most important players.

Fresh off of a four-game sweep of the Orioles in Baltimore, Yankees manager Aaron Boone lauded his team's ability to find different ways to win.

"Anytime you can get four games, that doesn't happen very often," Boone told YES Network after the Yankees' 6-5 win on Thursday. "We won in a lot of different ways in this four-game series, so it was good to see, but the guys played until the end each and every day, and [it's] a good way to get on the plane."

Boone's starting lineup on Thursday didn't include Gleyber Torres or Gary Sanchez, the two players who have absolutely scorched Baltimore pitching this year. Still though, both players managed to play a big role in the win. In a 5-5 tie in the ninth inning, Torres drew a pinch-hit walk, and Sanchez followed it up with a pinch hit single. Torres would eventually score the game's winning run on a walk by Aaron Hicks.

Five Takeaway's from Sunday's game...

1) The Yankees blew open a 5-5 game in the sixth inning with seven runs. The Rays walked five in the inning and Thairo Estrada had the big hit, a three-run double.

2) Chad Green was the opener in this one and, much like the rest of his season, the results were not good. Green allowed two base-runners in the first inning and then coughed up two homers in his second frame. As Green's descent continues, it's a wonder where the Yanks will use him going forward.

The Yankees have pulled Clint Frazier three times in the past five games in favor of the team having a stronger defense for the later innings.

And Frazier is more than understanding about it.

"It's the better play, I think," Frazier said, according to NJ Advance Media's Brendan Kuty. "Obviously, I've had some stuff in the past that shouldn't have happened that did. It's not like it's unwarranted, you know?"

Yankees notes

Aaron Hicks, who was set to make his season debut Monday after missing the first 40 games with a back injury, is not in the Game 1 lineup. He'll likely start in center field in Game 2. Brett Gardner is in center while Mike Tauchman, who was called up to be the Yankees' 26th man for the doubleheader, begins Game 1 in left field. ... DJ LeMahieu is on fire as the Yankees' leadoff hitter. Over his last 14 games, he's 23-for-54 (.426) with one homer, four doubles, 11 RBI, five walks, 10 runs and two stolen bases.

Aaron Hicks finally makes his season debut for the Yankees as he was activated from the injured list after missing the first 40 games with a back injury.

The Yanks might be playing a man short if they can't get a replacement for Miguel Andújar before the start of the game. Andújar is likely going back on the IL with lingering labrum issues.

The Yankees are without some of their best hitters like Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Aaron Hicks, but they continue to win games. 

So what's been the secret for this makeshift ballclub that has been without some of their All-Stars? Timely hitting.

It was showcased in the form of Gio Urshela, a player who recently has had the flair for the dramatic, on Friday night in Tampa. In the sixth with the Yanks down by one, he had a clutch, two-out single to take the lead and New York didn't look back from there. There was also DJ LeMahieu's walk-off single against the Mariners earlier this week -- a moment that wouldn't have happened if Urshela didn't go deep to tie the game.

The Yankees return to the Bronx after a successful nine-game road trip. They may not like the result of their short two-game stint in Arizona that led to two straight losses, but they ultimately come back to Yankee Stadium winning six of their nine games. 

But the challenge has only begun for the pinstripes. 

It was an easy schedule throughout April, as the Yankees played teams like the Orioles, Tigers, and White Sox who are not expected to compete for a playoff spot in September. But New York will now have to face three formidable teams over their next 10 games.

A year after the Yankees missed out on the Cameron Maybin sweepstakes, they finally have him. And he's pumped up.

The Yankees acquired Maybin, a 32-year-old outfielder who had played 14 games at the Triple-A level this year, from the Cleveland Indians on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations.

And with five outfielders -- as well as several key infielders and pitchers -- on the injured list, Maybin will make his Yankees debut Friday against Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants.

It was past midnight, Wednesday p.m. into Thursday a.m., and the Yankees hadn't begun their comeback in Anaheim yet that would lift them to a sixth straight victory, as they are defying all odds with a lineup that GM Brian Cashman calls "our 'B' Bombers."

Not as in Baby Bombers, of course, but rather Plan B.

The Yankees acquired outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Cleveland Indians on Thursday for cash considerations after they placed their fifth outfielder on the injured list.

The 32-year-old Maybin, whom the Yankees pursued at the trade deadline last year but lost out to the Mariners, is slashing .229/.397/.292 with no home runs and five RBIs in 13 games with Cleveland's Triple-A affiliate this season. Last year, Maybin hit .249/.326/.336 with four home runs and 28 RBIs in 129 games with the Marlins and Mariners.

The Yankees officially placed outfielder Clint Frazier on the injured list with a partial tear in his left ankle, as he becomes the fifth Yankees outfielder to be placed on the IL through the first four weeks of the regular season.

Frazier suffered the injury when he rolled his ankle on a pickoff attempt in the 12th inning of Monday's 14-inning win over the Los Angeles Angels. He stayed in the game but did not play on Tuesday or Wednesday. An MRI revealed the extent of the injury, which is expected to keep Frazier sidelined for 10-14 days, according to manager Aaron Boone.

The Yankees recalled RHP Joe Harvey to take his place on the active roster. They also optioned RHP Jonathan Loaisiga, who pitched three scoreless innings in Wednesday's 6-5 win, to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. They have not announced a second corresponding move as of Thursday morning.

Another Yankee bites the dust, as Clint Frazier is headed to the Injured List with a partial tear in his left ankle, Aaron Boone announced after Wednesday's game.

Frazier sat out the past two games after rolling his ankle in the series opener against the Angels. Boone initially said it was simply precautionary that he sat out Tuesday night, and that the team didn't believe is was anything "too serious."

Well, that isn't the case now after Frazier got an MRI on his ankle on Wednesday. With the partial tear in the ankle, Boone says the team believes him to be out 10-14 days.

The Yankees found some good and bad news in regards to the injured Giancarlo Stanton that manager Aaron Boone divulged to the media on Wednesday. 

The good news first is that Stanton's left bicep that was strained has healed. But the bad news is that he won't be returning after feeling some "residual stuff" in his left shoulder, according to New York Times' James Wagner

Supposedly, Stanton has dealt with shoulder "stuff" in the past, as Boone put it. In turn, the slugger received a cortisone shot in his shoulder and will continue to rest for a few days before the team assesses the situation.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman went on Mike Francesa's WFAN show Monday afternoon and gave updates on the team's laundry list of injuries. Here's a look at the latest on the injured Yankees stars:

Aaron Judge

The Yankees' injury woes got worse when Judge suffered an oblique strain over the weekend. Cashman said the strain is "significant" and it doesn't seem as if he'll be back anytime soon. "We're just gonna have to repackage and plug and play with what we've got," Cashman said. "Our job is to find a way regardless of what circumstances (are.)"

The Yankees saw another big blow in the injury department on Saturday, when slugger Aaron Judge went down with a left oblique strain. Judge was grimacing in pain, holding his left side after a swing during the win against the Royals. 

It is unclear how long the Yankees will be losing Judge, as he went to the hospital today to receive an MRI to check on the severity of the injury. But there is no doubt the big man will see a stint on the Injured List, a place where multiple key cogs of the Bombers has landed so far this season. 

Judge will join the likes of Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton as injured outfield pieces. Hicks and Stanton are progressing in their rehab nicely, but they are not expected to join the team any time soon. That leaves only Clint Frazier, Brett Gardner, and Mike Tauchman as the only healthy outfielders on the Yanks.

An All-Star collection of Yankees sit on the club's injured list, which has been one of the main culprits to their 8-10 start to the season. There are six regulars that have already missed significant time in 2019, but who is missed the most?

How does Frazier fit? 00:01:22
SNY's Sweeny Murti discusses Clint Frazier and Brett Gardner, and how they fit the roster once Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton return.

For the moment, Clint Frazier is providing exactly what the Yankees need given the number of key players on the injured list. 

The 24-year-old outfielder, who is not far removed from being considered one of the best prospects in baseball, is healthy after dealing with concussion issues last season and is displaying the "legendary" bat speed GM Brian Cashman has previously praised Frazier for. 

In 13 games entering Thursday, Frazier was slashing .333/.347/.622 with four homers and 12 RBI; he also had 11 strikeouts against two walks.

This comes as Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Hicks are both nursing injuries, so the Yanks have been able to plug Frazier in at either DH or left field with Brett Gardner occupying center, Mike Tauchman seeing some time in left, and of course, Aaron Judge in right field.

Of all the Yankees currently sitting out on the Injured List, Luis Severino may be the most mind-boggling of them all. 

Severino's injury started with shoulder inflammation, an injury that usually needs rest to heal. But, after feeling more pain during his throwing program, Severino returned to New York to be reevaluated. Well, that evaluation included an MRI that revealed a lat strain, which has shut down the righty with July being his potential comeback.

But how can shoulder inflammation turn into a lat strain? Severino, who was at Yankee Stadium during the Yankees' win over the Red Sox on Wednesday night, believes that the strain actually occurred when he initially suffered an injury back on March 5.

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."
