The Yankees are not concerned with Aaron Judge's post-injured list slump.

Though Judge is 0-for-10 with four strikeouts in three games since returning from an oblique strain that sidelined him for two months, manager Aaron Boone knows what Judge is capable of.

"Judge is about the last guy I worry about," Boone told reporters after Sunday's loss to the Astros. "It's truly a matter of time. When he locks it in real good, you know it's gonna be on base and power for days."

Yanks win streak ends at 8 00:01:12
Boone and Happ talk about Happ's struggles and possibly meeting the Astros in the post-season

The Yankees won their eighth game in a row, beating the Astros 7-5 on Saturday night at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score


Five takeaways from Saturday's game

1) Giancarlo Stanton came up clutch in a pair of huge spots for the Yankees on Saturday. After the Astros tied the game at two on a Josh Reddick two-run homer in the top of the sixth, Stanton grounded a two-run single off Yuli Gurriel's glove to give the Yankees the lead. Later in the game, with the score tied at five in the seventh, Stanton hit an almost identical ball, scoring two again and putting the Yankees up 7-5.

2) With a 4-2 lead in the seventh inning, Aaron Boone turned the ball over to Jonathan Holder, and the reliever couldn't keep the lead. With two on and two outs, Astros rookie Yordan Alvarez blasted a three-run home run to right to give Houston the lead. The Yankees bounced right back, though, as Austin Romine lined an opposite field home run to tie the game.

The Yankees (49-27, 5.5 GA in AL East) can collect a sweep against the Astros (48-30, 6.5 GA in AL West) on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium at 2:20 p.m.

Yankees notes

Old Timer's Day took place before this one, where Mariano Rivera played in his very first one. He had an inside-the-park home run during his at-bat. ...The Yankees would push their win streak to nine games if they can defeat Houston today. ...Gleyber Torres and Gary Sanchez have homered in three consecutive games when they play. They got the day off yesterday, and Gio Urshela and Austin Romine -- their replacements -- both homered. ...Giancarlo Stanton had four, clutch RBI yesterday, including the game-winning hit -- a two-run single to left.

The Yankees have placed OF Cameron Maybin on the 10-day Injured List with a Grade 2 left calf strain, the team announced on Sunday. The move is retroactive to June 22. 

Manager Aaron Boone said after the game Friday night that Maybin had to leave early that the veteran outfielder "felt a pot" in his calf as he rounded the bases following a Gary Sanchez home run. As he made his way to the dugout, he was visibly limping. 

This is a tough blow for Maybin, who has been wonderful for the Yankees since coming on mid-season. He is slashing .314/.391/.500 with five homers, 14 RBI and seven doubles over 42 games this season. He played a vital role in providing quality outfield depth when Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton were all on the IL.

The return of Aaron Judge to the Yankees' lineup on Friday night marked the final piece to complete the Bronx Bombers' claim as the most powerful lineup in the majors. 

It also meant getting the Yankees' biggest star back, too, but Judge believes that claim belongs to Gleyber Torres. 

The Yankees' 22-year-old infielder homered in his third consecutive game on Friday -- along with Gary Sanchez -- giving him 18 on the season. Torres is hitting .287/.347/.544 on the season and is on pace for 39 home runs this year.

The Yankees win their seventh-straight game, beating the Astros 4-1, at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score


Five takeaways from Friday's game

1) James Paxton generated 17 swings and misses, but he couldn't get through the sixth inning. Paxton finished with seven strikeouts, however he walked three batters and was never fully in command of the strike zone. Though he allowed just one run in this one, some of Paxton's efforts simply feel like there is something missing.

It's no secret that the AL East-leading Yankees will be looking to upgrade their roster prior to the trade deadline on July 31. It was clear before the Edwin Encarnacion trade, but the team's primary focus will be starting pitching. 

We know that the organization will make a move, but when and for whom remain to be seen. The real question is, what type of move(s) can be expected from GM Brian Cashman? 

Each summer, big names are tossed through the rumor mill, and 2019 has been no different. The biggest names circulated thus far range from Madison Bumgarner, Trevor Bauer and potentially Max Scherzer. While the flash and attention of elite names always creates intrigue, it's worth taking a look at similar past opportunities and what the Yankees have done in those situations.

The "primary" season is over for the All-Star Game voting and six Yankees have advanced to final round. 

The entire Yankees infield -- Luke Voit, DJ LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres and Gio Urshela have all finished within the top-three voting at their positions to advance. Gary Sanchez also advanced to the final round among AL catchers while Aaron Judge, despite being injured most of the season, is in the final round of nine outfielders. 

Next will be a special "Election Day," where fans will have 28 hours to vote for one of the three finalists at each position (nine for outfield) as the starters on the All-Star Game.

The public obsession with adding an elite starting pitcher isn't going away until a deal gets done at some point, but it shouldn't overshadow the magnificence of what the Yankees are doing these days, playing at a remarkably high level in all areas of the game. 

Consider that while winning six straight games they've outscored their opponents by a whopping 47-17, with the last four of those games against the Rays and the Astros. 

And to think, Giancarlo Stanton has barely been a factor yet since returning earlier this week, and now Aaron Judge is back as well, beginning Friday night. That plus newly-acquired Edwin Encarnacion riding shotgun for the big boys and, oh by the way, Gary Sanchez slugging at an MVP-level once again.

Cameron Maybin lives to see another day in pinstripes. 

The Yankees announced that Nestor Cortes Jr. was optioned to Triple-A Scranton after Thursday's 10-6 win over the Astros as they open up a roster spot to welcome Aaron Judge back from the IL on Friday. 

By keeping Maybin, the Yankees will carry four bench players and 12 pitchers, which includes two extra outfielders.

The Yankees use four homers to beat the Astros, 10-6, Yankee Stadium. >> Box score


Six takeaways from Thursday's game

1) The Yankees tandem of Chad Green as opener and Nestor Cortes Jr. as follower can only be derailed by a rain delay at this point. Green tossed two scoreless innings to start the game and Cortes followed with two scoreless of his own. After the delay, Cortes came back out for the fifth inning and got two quick outs. The scoreless string ended there as the left-hander allowed back to back home runs before retiring the final batter of the inning. The duo has been terrific for the Yankees, making it realistic to believe the club will stick with them until the wheels fall off.

Aaron Judge is set to return to the Yankees' lineup on Friday, and the 27-year-old is more than ready to return.

Coming off of his rehab assignment, Judge was back in the Yankees' clubhouse on Thursday.

"It's about time," Judge told reporters on Thursday.

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' trade for Edwin Encarnacion was certainly a surprise, but what may have been a bigger surprise was the demotion of Clint Frazier to Triple-A. 

Frazier vocalized his disappointment on Sunday, saying it was a "tough pill to swallow," and it raised many eyebrows as a possible precursor of a trade involving the 24-year-old outfielder. 

Yankees GM Brian Cashman explained the rationale of demoting Frazier instead of Mike Tauchman or waiving Cameron Maybin in a conversation with Joel Sherman of The Post.

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.

Doesn't look like Clint Frazier is taking his demotion very well. 

With Edwin Encarnacion joining the Yankees, the corresponding move was sending Frazier back down to Triple-A. Frazier admitted after the team's win that the demotion came as a surprise. 

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

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.

The Yankees beat the White Sox 10-3 on Sunday to split the four-game series at Guaranteed Rate Field.

5 takeaways from Sunday's game

1) Yankees backup catcher Austin Romine drove in four runs with a two-run double and a two-run single, raising his season total to 15. Romine is now a career .290 hitter with runners in scoring position in 224 at-bats in such situations.

The Yankees are finally getting Giancarlo Stanton back in the lineup. 

Aaron Boone told reporters before their game against the White Sox on Sunday that Stanton will be activated on Tuesday. 

Stanton has had a whirlwind start to his 2019 season, with multiple injuries plaguing him. It started with a biceps strain on April 1 that put him on the IL to begin with, and during his rehab, a shoulder strain came about as well.

The Yankees (42-27, 0.5 game lead over Rays in AL East) try to make it two in a row in Chicago against the White Sox (34-35, 13.0 GB in AL Central) on Sunday at 2:10 p.m. 

Yankees notes

Mike Tauchman is playing for the third time in four days. He has one hit in five at-bats since rejoining the club Thursday. ... With the looming returns of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton from the injured list, along with the acquisition of Edwin Encarnacion on Saturday, Tauchman's days are numbered. It may also mean Clint Frazier and Brett Gardner will receive less playing time going forward, but both are in the starting lineup Sunday. ... Gleyber Torres has three multi-hit efforts in his last four games and has increased his slash line to .288/.340/.527 on the season.

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter |

The first blush reaction to the Yankees' trade for slugger Edwin Encarnacion was that if felt like the first move in a trade to upgrade the rotation by moving Clint Frazier - but that is not the case, according to major league sources.

With this deal, the Yanks simply saw an opportunity to upgrade their offense, courtesy of Seattle's sell-off. They traded for Encarnacion without having any other deals lined up. It was simply an isolated opportunity that arose, and they seized.

The Yankees were already set to get a boost to the lineup when Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge return, and now the lineup will be even more potent.

The Yankees have acquired Edwin Encarnacion in a trade with the Seattle Mariners, sources confirmed to SNY Insider Andy Martino Saturday night before the Yankees announced the deal early Sunday.

Martino has also noted that this move makes it easier for the Yankees to now trade Clint Frazier for a starting pitcher, and that the team has been looking at Trevor Bauer and Marcus Stroman.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Yes, it's harder to land a sure thing toward the end of the first round, which is where the Yankees pick Monday on the opening day of the MLB Draft.

But the Yanks took Aaron Judge No. 32 overall six years ago, so they know they can hit a home run -- yeah, pun intended -- late in the first round. Perhaps they can do it again this year when they choose No. 30 overall. Or maybe they'll hit it big at No. 38, the pick they got when Sonny Gray signed with Cincinnati.

Pete Alonso is already taking the MLB by storm, but he has made it clear he wants to perform on one of the biggest stages in the game: The 2019 Home Run Derby. 

Alonso's natural power bat would be a perfect fit for the competition, but should he be scared of the Derby curse? Some players don't participate in it due to their swings potentially getting messed up from trying to put the ball over the fence. 

Well, a player that was in Alonso's exact shoes two years ago in Yankees OF Aaron Judge doesn't believe Alonso should think that way. He wants to see him at the Progressive Field plate come All-Star weekend participating in the Derby...

Aaron Judge has been out since April 20 with a left oblique strain, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been making an impact for the Yankees. 

Sometimes, players decide to stay in their home city to focus solely on their rehab process. But the Yankees gave Judge the option of that, or joining the team wherever they went. 

Being the team player that he is, Judge chose the latter.

The Yankees have held their own without several players that were set to be key components to the 2019 season. One of those players, Didi Gregorius, is getting very close to returning to action just over seven months after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Despite the Yankees infielders' early season success, Gregorius' absence was felt in numerous ways.

The Yankees have been racking up wins despite missing several key stars, and nobody could blame the Yanks if they've been wondering just how good they could be when they're healthy.

One of those stars, Aaron Judge, is making progress in his recovery from the left oblique strain that has sidelined him for about six weeks. Before Thursday's Yankees-Red Sox game was rained out, Judge made strong throws from right field to the infield and declared himself pain-free.

"I felt I haven't missed a day. It feels like April (20),'' Judge said, according to Newsday. "There is no pain and no problem. I am letting it go. The last couple of days, getting back to normal routine and getting the rhythm down again."

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.

The Yankees have had a rich history with the MLB All-Star Game. The team has sent at least three players to the Midsummer Classic in 24 of the last 25 years, and at least one player has started in 22 of those years. Two Yankees have won the All-Star Game MVP Award, which has helped the American League win 18 of the last 25 contests.

The Yankees will likely continue the legacy by sending at least four players to Cleveland this year. With fan voting having opened on Tuesday, let's take a look at who has the best case to represent the Yankees...

Gary Sanchez

Even with Aaron Judge, who has started the last two All-Star Games, likely missing this year's event due to injury, the Yankees still look poised to have a player in the starting lineup. No catcher has even come close to matching Sanchez's production this season, as the Yankees' backstop will likely make his first All-Star start in his second selection to the game.

Mark your calendars or set up a smartphone alert, baseball fans - the first leg of the Subway Series is speeding toward us.

But before the Yankees and Mets meet for the first time this season June 10-11 in the Bronx, both clubs have work to do, particularly the Mets. Both have to get healthier, too, because we want to watch the likes of Didi Gregorius and Jeff McNeil when the teams meet.

That way, you can have a fuller picture of your favorite team when you begin smack-talking relatives from Brooklyn to Bergen County to Battery Park.

The Yankees don't have Aaron JudgeGiancarlo StantonMiguel Andujar or Didi Gregorius, a group that combined for 119 home runs last year.

And still, they're finding ways to win ... win a lot.

"These guys, the focus each and every day is on the game and playing winning baseball, and everyone kind of pulling their weight, and the mantra of come in and do your job," manager Aaron Boone said, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey. "They've really taken to that, and a lot of them really well."

The Yankees need rotation depth, and the time is fast approaching when they'll have to make a decision as to the route they'll take to secure it.

The Yankees lost another rotation member Tuesday, when the club placed CC Sabathia on the 10-day injured list due to pain in his surgically repaired right knee. The Yankees are already down staff ace Luis Severino. And while James Paxton is close to returning from an injury of his own, he's not exactly the poster child for health.

The 2019 Yankees offense isn't your father's Yankees offense.

This year's squad ranks seventh league-wide in both runs and home runs - not bad, but not quite what the team was expecting coming into the year. After injuries to sluggers Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Didi Gregorius and Miguel Andujar, among others, it's understandable that the Yankees' offense would see a decline in the power department.

Has that stopped them? Not one bit.

Despite being completely decimated by injuries, the Yankees have managed to get contributions from everyone who has been asked to fill a void as they now find themselves atop the AL East. And it's all been a pleasure for owner Hal Steinbrenner to watch.

"Considering the adversity we've faced in the first two months of the season, it's phenomenal the job these guys have done," Steinbrenner told the Associated Press Friday at a Yankees extended spring training game before the big-league club came back in the ninth to defeat the Rays, 4-3, and wrest control of the division.

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?"

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.
