The Yankees have officially clinched the AL East title on Thursday night, doing so for the first time since 2012. Now the only thing left to play for is home field advantage throughout the postseason, which the Astros and Bombers are currently locked in to with 100 wins apiece.

As the Yankees ride out the rest of the season, the next phase of their journey to the World Series will be putting together the 25-man postseason roster. 

One big advantage GM Brian Cashman and manager Aaron Boone possess this year is roster depth, something that has gotten them through all the injuries that have plagued the team throughout the season. Players like Gio Urshela, DJ LeMahieu, Cameron Maybin, Mike Tauchman, and others have stepped up when called upon, and that should continue in October.

Reaction to clinching AL East 00:01:43
CC Sabathia, Aaron Judge and Brett Gardner react to clinching the AL East despite the injuries this season. For the vets, it means a lot.

Despite dealing with injuries all season long, the Yankees overcame that adversity and won their 19th AL East title on Thursday night after a 9-1 win over the Angels. It's the team's first division title since 2012, and gives them back-to-back 100-win seasons.

Star players like Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, Luis Severino, Gary Sanchez and many others have all been injured and had to miss games at one point this season.

"Lot of ups and downs this year, lot of guys battling through things," Judge said. "We're just happy to be in here, happy to be in this moment."

Boone feels bad for Betances 00:01:53
New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone feels bad that reliever Dellin Betances tore his Achilles but was impressed by Luis Severino's return.

The Yankees won their first game their final homestand of the season, coming up victorious over the Angels 8-0 Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game...

1) Facing his first major league batter since the 2018 ALDS, Luis Severino came in expecting to throw about 70 pitches (ended up throwing 67)…he used up 12 of those on the leadoff hitter. Brian Goodwin was caught looking on the first pitch, took two balls on the next couple and then proceeded to foul off the next six pitches. Goodwin held Severino to a full count before walking on the 12th pitch. But, Severino managed to escape the inning with no runs scored and just one hit to go with the walk, but used up 19 pitches.

The Yankees (97-52, 9.0 GA in AL East) continue their three-game series with the Blue Jays (58-90, 38.5 GB in AL East) at 3:07 p.m. inside the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

Yankees notes

The lineup shuffles for the Yankees after they suffered their 6-5 loss in 12 innings to the Blue Jays late Friday night. Among the notables, RF Aaron Judge is back in the two spot after he sat out -- until a pinch-hit strikeout in the top of the 12th inning -- as a precautionary move following his collision into the right-field wall during Thursday's doubleheader with the Detroit Tigers. Cameron Maybin, who replaced Judge in Friday's starting lineup, slides back to LF in favor of Clint Frazier after an 0-for-5 night in RF. Without Gary Sanchez until -- likely -- the end of the month as he recovers from his pulled left groin Thursday, the Yankees give C Kyle Higashioka the nod behind the dish after Austin Romine spent all 12 innings as the team's backstop Friday. Didi Gregorius gets the day off, sliding SS Gleyber Torres in the middle infield and giving 2B Thairo Estrada his first start since Aug. 17 before he suffered a calf injury.

James Paxton held the Red Sox off the scoreboard as the Yankees coasted to a 5-0 victory over the Red Sox on Monday night. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Monday's game

1) James Paxton tossed his second consecutive scoreless outing and won his eighth straight start on Monday with another fantastic performance. He allowed just four hits over 6.2 innings, walking three and striking out seven. He hasn't lost a game since July 26, and in the eight starts since has seen his ERA drop from 4.72 to 3.96. His streak of scoreless innings now stands at 15.

The Yankees (92-50, 8.5 GA in AL East) continue their four-game series against the rival Boston Red Sox (76-65, 15.5 GB in AL East, 6.0 GB for second Wild Card) Saturday at 4:05 p.m. at Fenway Park.

Yankees notes

After the Red Sox roughed up RHP Domingo German (17-4, 4.21 ERA) for five runs on three hits and four walks to five strikeouts in Friday's 6-1 loss, the Yankees try to bounce back with a better sense of urgency -- on the mound and at the plate. The Red Sox held the Yankees to three hits, with the only run coming on CF Brett Gardner's fifth-inning solo shot. Eight of the 10 Yankees to make plate appearances went hitless. SS Didi Gregorious (1 for 4 with a double) and Gardner (2 for 3) were the exceptions.

The Yankees (92-49, 9.5 GA in AL East) hit the road for 10 games as they start their trip with Friday's four-game series against the rival Boston Red Sox (75-65, 16.5 GB in AL East, 6.5 GB for second Wild Card) at 7:10 p.m. at Fenway Park.

Yankees notes

Winners in eight of their past 10 games, the Yankees hit the road through next weekend after they won three-game series against the Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers. In each of those sets, the Yankees dropped the opener before they bounced back and took their final two contests. The successful six-game homestand followed the Yankees' road series victories vs. the Dodgers and Mariners, taking two out of three against Los Angeles and sweeping Seattle.

Boone happy with Rosa's debut 00:00:47
New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone was thrilled with rookie Adonis Rosa's debut and relief appearance against the Baltimore Orioles.

The Yankees defeated the Orioles 8-3 on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game...

1) Domingo German was tremendous for the Yankees, cruising to his 16th win of the season. The right-hander went 7.0 innings for the Yanks, allowing just two earned runs on five hits. Both of German's earned runs came on solo home runs, but he did a good job of keeping runners off base.

Most teams are content with at least one quality catching option. It's a position where power isn't expected, but certainly welcome if one provides it. Good defense, as well as the ability to work well with pitchers, are pivotal to the positions success.

The Yankees have this in Gary Sanchez, the slugging 26-year-old whose defense has made improvements after disastrous showings in previous seasons. Behind him, both Austin Romine and Kyle Higashioka have proved their worth for different reasons.

But it's likely that only one of them will remain with New York beyond this season. While the assumption is that the organization re-signs Romine, drafted by the team in 2007, the decision may not be as simple.

The Yankees hit five more home runs, crushing the Orioles 14-2 to sweep the series. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Wednesday's game

1) The Yankees set a Major League record on Wednesday night. With three more home runs, the Yankees have now hit 52 home runs against the Orioles, the most home runs that one team has ever hit in a single season against a single opponent. The previous record was held by the 1956 Yankees with 48 home runs against the Kansas City A's. The Yankees have now hit 5+ home runs in three straight games.

Depth in Major League Baseball is hardly a constant. One of the more unpredictable aspects of the sport, teams' depth shifts almost daily, while roster overhauls occur in the offseasons. Two things are difficult to achieve - consistent production from backups and helping other teams' castoffs realize their potential.

Enter, the 2019 Yankees, who have pulled off both despite injuries and an influx of new faces.

In the ever evolving analytics-driven game, New York has clearly been in the upper tier of searching for and acquiring depth options.

The Yankees blasted six home runs on their way to a 9-4 win over the Orioles on Tuesday. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game

1) Mike Tauchman had a big night for the Yankees at the plate and in the field. The lefty started the scoring for the Bombers with a solo shot in the top of the third inning. His 10th homer of the season game the Yankees a 1-0 lead. He finished the night 2-4 with two RBI. Later in the game, Tauchman made an unbelievable catch to rob Pedro Severino of a home run.

The Yankees continued to flex their muscles at Camden Yards on Monday with five more home runs in a record-setting day en route to a 9-6 victory over the Orioles. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Monday's game

1) The Yankees have 32 home runs in eight games at Camden Yards this season -- a new MLB record for road home runs against a single team. The biggest home run was Mike Ford's go-ahead blast in the eighth to put the Yankees up 7-6.

The Yankees did nothing at the trade deadline after GM Brian Cashman said he "knocked on all doors." And they're perfectly OK with that. 

Manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday that "nothing changes here" in that the team's goals of a World Series haven't diminished because the suspected rotation help didn't come their way. In fact, as Boone looked around his clubhouse following a come-from-behind win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday afternoon, he knew he has the group he already needs to win a title. 

"Just in there celebrating a win with those guys, and looking around the room and knowing we got everything we need to be a championship club. We're ready to roll and move forward now," he said.

The Yankees salvaged a win in the final game of their four-game series against the Red Sox, winning Sunday's game at Fenway Park by a score of 9-6. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Sunday's game

1) Finally, a Yankees starter settled things down long enough for the offense to find a bit of its lost magic. Domingo German struck out nine batters in 5.1 innings, while allowing three runs on four hits and one walk. German, who was crushed by the Twins in his last outing, was great for much of the night, with Andrew Benintendi's home run being the lone mistake of the night.

The Red Sox jumped all over Yankees' pitching on Thursday, cruising to a 19-3 win. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Thursday's game...

1) Masahiro Tanaka had the worst start in his Major League career on Thursday night. The Red Sox jumped all over him right out of the gates, as Xander Bogaerts slammed a three-run home run in the first inning, followed by a pair of two-run doubles from Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Bets. After that seven-run first, Tanaka was tagged again for five more runs in the fourth, including a Rafael Devers homer. Tanaka allowed a career-worst 12 earned runs on 12 hits in just 3.1 innings, causing his ERA to jump from 4.00 to 4.79.

The only Yankees pitcher to allow more earned runs in an outing is Carl Mays, who allowed 13 earned against the Indians on July 17, 1923.

2) Stephen Tarpley was tasked with trying to keep things from getting any worse after Tanaka was pulled, but the lefty also had a rough night on the mound. Tarpley allowing four earned runs on five hits in just 1.2 innings, raising his season ERA to 8.22.

It hasn't been a good last month for Gary Sanchez, and now it just got worse. 

The All-Star catcher is headed to the IL with a left groin strain, the Yankees announced. His injury came in Tuesday night's thrilling win against the Twins after trying to beat out a groundball to shortstop. He was set to have an MRI on Wednesday.

The injury initially looked like an ankle ailment, as replay showed Sanchez turn his right ankle. However, Boone said it was a groin injury and the IL stint was possible.

The Yankees rallied on three separate occasions to beat the Twins, 14-12, at Target Field. >> Box score

Seven takeaways from Tuesday's game...

1) On a 3-0 count with one out in the 10th inning, Gleyber Torres smoothly roped a single to right field scoring Didi Gregorius to give the Yankees the lead for the third time in three innings. Austin Romine scored an insurance run on a wild pitch. The Yanks would keep this lead only because of a miraculous catch to end the game by Aaron Hicks.

Mariano Rivera is headed into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday for the work he did on the field, from his postseason brilliance to his record 652 saves to that devastating cut fastball that turned bats into shards of wood. 

But it's also remarkable how many of the folks who played or worked with Rivera touch on personal stories when asked to recount their favorite Mo memory. Turns out, Rivera wasn't just a Cooperstown-worthy pitcher; he was a Hall of Fame teammate, too.

Sure, DJ LeMahieu may be considered the Yankees' MVP given his clutch hitting and the fact he leads the American League in hitting.

But third baseman Gio Urshela has been such a revelation that he, too, has garnered high praise.

"We wouldn't be in first place without him," outfielder Aaron Judge said, according to the New York Times' James Wagner, after the 27-year-old drove in two runs and scored the go-ahead run in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium.

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.

During the 1951 season, New York Giants coach Herman Franks set up a military field scope in the home clubhouse at the Polo Grounds, which was in center field. From that spot, Franks ran a sign-stealing operation that likely enabled one of the most famous home runs in baseball history.

In a playoff game against Brooklyn on October 3 of that year, Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca threw a fastball to Bobby Thomson.

Thomson took a comfortable hack, lined the pitch over the left field wall, and announcer Russ Hodges made the iconic call, "The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant!"

The Yankees beat the Royals, 6-5, to earn a sweep in today's split doubleheader at Kauffman Stadium. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Saturday's game...

1) After Chad Green allowed a first inning run as the Yankees opener, the team turned to Chance Adams, the club's 26th man for the doubleheader. Adams pitched well, despite his line as his defense was atrocious behind him and the official scorer handed out some gift hits to the Royals that probably should have been ruled errors. Regardless, anyone watching had to like how Adams got the ball back each time his defense failed him, threw strikes and worked at a very good pace. He earned his first career MLB win.

Masahiro Tanaka threw seven dominant innings in the Yankees' 7-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday at Tropicana Field, striking out seven batters and allowing just one run.

"I think looking back a couple of games, I think today was one of the best [starts] I threw," Tanaka said through an interpreter, according to MLB.com's Dawn Klemish.

Tanaka threw just 73 pitches, but he was effective. He needed just nine pitches to get through the fourth inning, seven in the fifth and four in the seventh. He retired 12 batters in a row between the second and sixth innings before Austin Meadows' solo home run ended Tanaka's shutout.

CC Sabathia gets 3,000th K 00:01:06
New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is the 17th player to reach 3,000 strikeouts. SNY's Sweeny Murti believes this makes him a HOF lock.

Anthony McCarron, SNY.tv | Twitter |

Now that CC Sabathia has notched his 3,000th strikeout, it'll be tempting to boil that milestone down to what it says about his Hall of Fame credentials. It's a terrific boost, obviously, but Sabathia authored a marvelous, entertaining career long before he fanned John Ryan Murphy Wednesday night to hit that magic number.

So 3K strikeouts ought to be recognized as an occasion to appreciate what Sabathia has done in his 19 seasons, too, especially because he's retiring at the end of the year. There will be debate about whether he belongs in Cooperstown, but there's no denying that the ride has been something special.

Seven takeaways from Sunday's game

1) Austin Romine has been mostly quiet since taking over the full-time role with Gary Sanchez on the injured list. But, he had the game-tying single in the eighth inning and the walk-off single in the 10th to give the Yanks the walk-off win, part of a three-hit day.

This might isn't a good sign regarding the status of Gary Sanchez.

The Yankees are calling up catcher Kyle Higashioka from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Scranton manager Jay Bell said Thursday night, according to the Times-Tribune's Conor Foley.

Sanchez was the designated hitter on Tuesday and did not start on Wednesday because of tightness in both legs. Sanchez pinch-hit in the eighth inning Wednesday and struck out.

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.

The Yankees go for a three-game sweep of the Orioles on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. 

Yankees Notes

In an American League where many expected contenders are struggling (the Red Sox are 2-8, the Astros are 4-5), the Yankees' +6 run differential is the fourth-best. ... The Yanks enter the day 1.5 games behind the Rays for first place in the AL East.

When we think of a club's overall success, it typically and rightfully relies upon the performance of the starters. However, the production from the bench players is of great importance understanding there will be injuries and performance issues along the way.

The Yankees have a couple of players considered locks to make the Opening Day roster as bench options, a handful of potential choices for the final spot on the bench and a long shot to be among the reserves late in the season.

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.

The Yankees couldn't match the Cardinals' offense Wednesday afternoon, falling on their home field, 9-5, in Tampa.

Five things to know about Wednesday's game

1) The only offense produced until a last-minute attempt at a comeback in the ninth came from an Austin Romine three-run jack in the bottom of the second. That was the only time the Yankees collected a hit with runners in scoring position, finishing 1-for-10 on the day.

It was reported earlier Tuesday the Yankees may be in on the J.T. Realmuto trade talks, but GM Brian Cashman killed that idea right away during his media availabilty.

According to multiple reports, Cashman isn't pursuing a starting catcher, and is committed to Gary Sanchez staying in the position for the 2019 season. 

The reason some may have believed the Yankees would want a change at the catching position stems from Sanchez' tumultuous season in 2018. He hit a dreadful .186/.291/.406 with 18 homers and 53 RBI over 89 games, as he battled trips to the DL with groin injuries.

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...

Aaron Boone talks Game 3 defeat 00:03:56
Yankees manager Aaron Boone explains what went wrong for Luis Severino and the Bombers as they got crushed by Boston, 16-1 in ALDS Game 3.

Luis Severino allowed six runs in three-plus innings, including three in a seven-run fourth inning, as the Yankees were pushed to the brink of elimination with a 16-1 loss to the Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score


1) After throwing four scoreless innings in last Wednesday's wild-card game, Severino (0-1) gave up six runs, seven hits and two walks on Monday, getting pulled after he loaded the bases in the fourth. Lance Lynn surrendered a bases-loaded walk to Mookie Betts and a bases-clearing double to Andrew Benintendi that gave the Red Sox a 7-0 lead.

2) Severino's counterpart, Nathan Eovaldi, shut down the Yankees, allowing just one run and five hits in seven innings as the Red Sox took a 2-1 series lead.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives: On Wednesday night, the Yankees will host the Athletics in the American League Wild Card Game with a trip to the ALDS against Boston on the line. The winner-moves-on affair will be hotly contested between two extremely talented, yet different clubs.

Yankees regulars vs. Athletics regulars

The Yankees come at opposing pitchers with a strong right-handed leaning lineup. They pounded 267 home runs this season, but not a single player hit over 40 alone, and Aaron Judge played in just 111 games. Instead, the Yankees distributed their homers across 19 players, with 12 players reaching double digits (an MLB record). Each of their presumed starting nine managed at least 14 homers. And despite a much higher payroll than the A's, the Yanks maintain a young offensive core, with eight players no older than 28.

The Yankees blew out the Rays, 12-1, on Thursday afternoon, but the story of the game was CC Sabathia's retaliation after the Rays threw behind one of his teammates. >> Box score


1) After Andrew Kittredge threw high and behind Austin Romine in the top of the sixth inning, Romine exchanged words with Rays catcher Jesus Sucre. In the bottom of the inning, Sabathia's first pitch to Sucre drilled him in the leg, leading to an immediate ejection. It also cost Sabathia $500,000, since he was two innings away from hitting his innings incentive. Sabathia looked at the Rays dugout on his way off the field, and said "that's for you, b*tch." 

2) Miguel Andujar, Giancarlo Stanton (2), and Luke Voit all homered for the Yankees. 

3) Before his ejection, Sabathia tossed five innings of one-hit ball, walking none and striking out five.

The Yankees will have to cover all the bases in a game that now has the potential to be played on the road against the surging Athletics.

Here are five questions the Yankees will have to answer when creating its wild card roster...

When Austin Romine homered on Saturday, he became the 10th Yankee to hit at least 10 home runs this season -- and if just one more player does the same, the Yankees will tie a major league record.

Romine's 10th home run came in the seventh inning when he hit a solo shot during the Yankees' 4-2 win.

"We've gotten production from a lot of different places, maybe some we didn't even expect coming into the year," manager Aaron Boone said, per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. "Guys have had to play more. Young guys have taken over significant roles. The fact that we've gotten production from everywhere is a big reason we're having a strong year."

Did Boone rally the troops? 00:03:40
The BNNY panel discusses whether or not Aaron Boone's ejection in the fifth inning against the Tigers got the Yankees' offense going Friday.

The Yankees didn't blow this 7-5 lead Friday night, as their late rally ended up in a win over the Tigers. >> Box score


1) The Yankees were down 5-4 heading into the eighth, but had a bases loaded opportunity with two outs. Gleyber Torres came through and made it 6-5 with a two RBI single to left. But that wasn't all New York could get. Austin Romine added some insurance with an infield single up the middle that scored Luke Voit
