As most people that watch baseball have suspected, the Yankees' success will come down to the play of their bullpen. Luckily for them, they've got one of the best in the league.

Luis Severino started for the Yankees and gave them a solid, scoreless four innings before Aaron Boone decided it was time to unload his relievers on the Twins.

From the fifth inning till the final pitch of the game, Boone put out five pitchers: Tommy Kahnle, Adam Ottavino, Chad Green, Zack Britton and Aroldis Chapman.

When to lift your starter?

Analytics-driven game planning calls for managers to remove starting pitchers before they start to struggle. This is a major change from the traditional approach, when you waited for the guy to labor before taking him out.

Bullpen decisions

Aaron Boone and pitching coach Larry Rothschild spent the past several days communicating to their relievers how they would be deployed, and that planning was evident in the explanations for moves that at first seemed surprising.

"He told me exactly how I was going to be used," Zack Britton said of his manager.

As the Yankees get set to open up the postseason against the Twins Friday, undoubtedly one of their biggest strengths lies in the power arms they have waiting to come into the game out of the bullpen. 

But according to John Smoltz, those weapons are going to put a lot of pressure on the man tasked with the decision on when to utilize them, Yankee manager Aaron Boone

Smoltz appeared on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio on Wednesday and said the pressure Boone faces in October could be immense because "what's looming in the 'pen and the temptation to get there is going to be great."

Yankees decision on roster 00:00:56
Sweeny Murti breaks down what the Yankees will need to look at when making their 25-man roster. Does CC Sabathia come out of the bullpen?

While the Yankees have yet to finalize their playoff roster, intrigue around how the team will deploy their pitching staff in the ALDS against the Twins continues to rise.

One player in particular who could have a different role in the playoffs is lefty J.A. Happ, who didn't have a stellar campaign in his first full season as a Yankee. The lefty finished the year with a 12-8 record, pitching to a 5.22 ERA and 1.295 WHIP.

Despite those iffy regular season numbers, the veteran is anxiously awaiting what the postseason has in store for the Bombers.

Only two days remain before the Yankees begin their quest for a 28th World Series title. A few hours before they take on the Twins at Yankee Stadium on Friday night, though, they have some tough decisions to make regarding their ALDS roster.

For a team that has won 103 games in the regular season, putting together a powerhouse roster should seem like a piece of cake. But for manager Aaron Boone and GM Brian Cashman, they want it to be perfect, and that includes making some tough decisions on certain players on the roster.

So, as the Yankees gear up for October baseball, here's what they must decide with their roster by Friday….

Job one for the Yankees on Sunday was to get out of the regular-season finale with no injuries, but with the way this IL-fest of a year has gone, forget that.

The Yankees lost to the Rangers, 6-1, in the last game ever at Globe Life Park, but the pinstriped headline was Gio Urshela leaving in the fourth inning with what the team is calling a mild left ankle sprain.

The Yankees told reporters in Texas that doctors examined Urshela at the ballpark and there were no further tests planned. The Yankees don't play again until Friday when they open the AL Division Series against the Twins at Yankee Stadium, so Urshela has time to heal.

The Yankees (103-58, 7.0 GA in AL East) wrap up the regular season with a matchup against the Rangers (77-84, 29.0 GB in AL West), in Arlington on Sunday at 3:05 p.m.

Yankees notes

With 305 home runs, the Yankees enter the final day of the regular season one ahead of the Twins for the Major League lead.... Luis Severino was shaky on Saturday for the first time since returning from the injured list, walking four over three innings pitched, allowing two runs. It remains to be seen how he'll be used in October... Both have demolished the previous all-time record for homers in a season. Didi Gregorius was a bright spot in Saturday's content, contributing a three-run double late in the loss.

St. Petersburg, Fla. -- The script when you use an opener, as the Yankees did on Wednesday and will likely do at least once in the division series, is supposed to flow like this: The opener blazes through a dominant one or two innings, then a starting pitcher -- the "bulk guy"  -- enters to more favorable matchups down the lineup.

These innovations, pioneered by the brilliant Tampa Bay Rays last season and since imitated by other clubs, have helped teams maximize their pitchers' strengths and steal wins from what would have been back-of-the-rotation slogs. The opener is a fascinating hack of the game, and will only become more widespread.

But what happens when the strategy goes sideways, as it did for the Yanks and Jonathan Loaisiga on Wednesday?

Sabathia a good bullpen piece 00:00:46
SNY Insider Andy Martino explains why New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia could be a force out of the bullpen after Tampa Bay outing.

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter |

St. Petersburg, Fla. -- From the front office down to manager Aaron Boone, the Yankees have been loath in recent weeks to discuss specifics of their playoff pitching plans.

But with internal discussions intensifying and the regular season drawing to a close, the team is finally beginning to tip its thought process. There's no way to audition pitchers for new roles without showing the public, and the Yanks need to peek at CC Sabathia and J.A. Happ during this two-game series at Tropicana Field.

The Yankees fell to the Rays, 2-1, in 12 innings on Tuesday night at Tropicana Field. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game...

1) Jordan Montgomery started as the Yankees' opener, and he pitched well. Over his two innings of work, the lefty allowed three hits, but he didn't give up any runs, while striking out three Rays. The way the Yankees deploy their pitching over their final handful of games will be very interesting to watch as the playoffs approach. On Wednesday, the Bombers had planned to use Chad Green as an opener before turning the ball over to J.A. Happ, but Green pitched out of the bullpen on Tuesday in extras.

Jordan Montgomery will start for the Yankees on Tuesday night against the Rays in Tampa, becoming the latest pitcher to take on that role for them this season.

Chad Green (14 times), Nestor Cortes Jr. (once), and Jonathan Holder (once) have also served as openers this season for the Yanks.

Montgomery recently returned from Tommy John surgery and has made one appearance so far this season, allowing three runs in 2.0 innings against the Blue Jays on Sept. 15.

First things first: you can't help but feel for Dellin Betances, one of the good guys in baseball, who tore his Achilles tendon in a freakish manner Sunday on the very day he finally pitched in a game for the first time this season.

That's as cruel as it is painful, all the more so considering that he is a couple months away from becoming a free agent.

Yet the cold truth is that if the Yankees can have only one of the two star pitchers for whom they've waited all season, they would much prefer it to be Luis Severino.

The Yankees dropped the final game of their three-game series with Blue Jays on Sunday, losing by a final score of 6-4. >> Box Score

Four takeaways from Sunday's game...

1) The Yankee pitching staff struggled early on Sunday, as four pitchers combined to give up six runs over the first five innings. Chad Green was effective as the opener, but Jordan Montgomery's 2019 debut was a battle, as the left-hander allowed three runs on four hits over two innings. Dellin Betances also made his first appearance of the season and he was excellent, striking out both batters he faced. But Betances gave way to Nestor Cortes Jr., who allowed a three-run homer to Randal Grichuk, the outfielder's second home run of the game.

After Game 1 of last year's division series loss to Boston, Aaron Boone had some cleaning up to do with his starting pitcher.

J.A. Happ, who had been removed with no outs in the third inning, was in Boone's office, and he was angry. He felt he should have had the chance to turn his performance around and save the bullpen.

But as Happ sat in a chair in the tiny room at Fenway, Boone and pitching coach Larry Rothschild calmly explained their rationale: They had a strong relief corps, were unwilling to let the game get away from them, and preferred other matchups in that inning. Happ left the office satisfied, and appreciative of the open exchange.

Wednesday night was a reminder to Yankees fans why manager Aaron Boone might opt to use an opener this postseason. 

Bullpen arm Chad Green, who has been used in this spot 13 times this season, took the mound for only the first two innings where he allowed just two hits and didn't let up a run before passing things off to Luis Cessa for the next three. 

It's performances like this from Green that makes this a real conversation between Boone and GM Brian Cashman when it's time to put together a postseason strategy.

The Yankees' top three rotation options -- James Paxton, Masahiro Tanaka, and Domingo German -- could be a solid group. But with Tanaka's inconsistency of late and German's postseason inexperience mixed with his potential innings limit, an opener could be an option to fill the gap.

The Yankees used six different pitchers during their 4-1 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday night, and improved to 11-2 on the season when using an opener.

After the game, manager Aaron Boone was asked if the team would consider using an opener in the playoffs based off the team's success with that strategy so far this season.

"That kind of scenario is certainly possible," Boone said.

Four takeaways from Wednesday's game

1) The Yankees jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning, thanks to a two-run blast from Aaron Judge. It was Judge's 20th home run of the season and brought his RBI total to 45 on the year. The team then extended their lead to 3-0 when Gelyber Torres hit his 34th home run of the season in the bottom of the fourth inning.

The Yankees (91-49, 9.5 GA in AL East) wrap up their three-game series with the Rangers (68-72, 22.0 GB in AL West, 12.5 GB for second Wild Card) Wednesday at 6:35 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees notes

The Yankees rebounded from their first shutout in 220 games to beat the Rangers 10-1 on Tuesday night. The team hit a total of five home runs, thanks to two from Gary Sanchez, and one each from Didi Gregorius, Brett Gardner, and Edwin Encarnacion. It was Encarnacion's 31st homer of the year, and his first game since a fractured wrist that had kept him out since Aug. 3. Starting pitcher James Paxton tossed 7.0 shutout innings of one-hit baseball and tied his season-high with 12 strikeouts.

The Yankees (90-49, 9.0 GA in AL East) continue a three-game series with the Texas Rangers (68-71, 22.0 GB in AL West, 12.5 GB for second Wild Card) Tuesday at 6:35 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees notes

The Yankees had their 122-game streak without suffering a shutout snapped Monday when the Rangers held them scoreless, 7-0, in a six-hit performance. The last time they were shutout happened June 30, 2018, in the form of an 11-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox. Against the Rangers, four players went hitless and four others had one hit, while OF Mike Tauchman led the efforts with a 2-for-3 day at the plate. The retun of DH Edwin Encarnacion, whom the Yankees activated from the 10-day IL after a two-game rehab stint in the minor leagues with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, should pack a punch in the lineup.

Five takeaways from Wednesday's game

1) The Yankees let the Mariners back in the game in the fourth inning, allowing two runs, but then buried Seattle with four runs in the fifth. Mike Ford hit a solo home run to right field only a few pitches after knocking one just foul down the same line. Tyler Wade then doubled and scored on a DJ LeMahieu single. The third and fourth runs came via Aaron Judge's two-run home run to left field. LeMahieu had two hits and two RBI while Judge also had a double, three hits in total and another two RBI.

The Yankees have continued to see good progress come from RHP Luis Severino, who is trying to return for the first time this season from a right lat strain. 

His next step, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch, will be a 35-pitch sim game down in Tampa. And if all goes well, the young righty could see his first rehab game on Sunday. 

The Yankees would love to see Severino return to the team before they begin the postseason, but how exactly should they use him? Having him get the ball to start from the jump may not be the best course of action.

The Yankees have had some rocky moments from their pitching staff this season, but manager Aaron Boone thinks the team has plenty in the tank to win it all. 

The Bronx Bombers notably didn't add any arms to the rotation during the recent trade deadline, but speaking to WFAN on Thursday prior to Thursday night's game against the A's, Boone said things are more than fine on the mound for his team. Including players that could return from injury, the Yankees have a World Series worthy staff, according to Boone. 

"Oh yeah, we have enough to be the best team in the world," Boone said.

The Yankees (81-42, 9.5 GA in AL East) look to rebound against the American League Wild Card leading Cleveland Indians (73-49, 0.5 GB in AL Central, 2.0 GA in first Wild Card) on Friday at 7:05 p.m.

Yankees notes

The Yankees struggled on Thursday night, giving up a season-high 19 runs in a loss to the Indians. Chad Green had his worst start of the season, allowing five earned runs in the first inning including two home runs. Jose Ramirez hit a grand slam, and Jason Kipnis followed up with a solo shot, thus ending Green's start after recording just one out. The rest of the bullpen under-performed as well -- with Jonathan Loaisiga giving up four earned runs over 2.2 innings and Chance Adams giving up five earned runs and 10 hits in 3.2 innings of work. First baseman/designated hitter Mike Ford made his pitching debut in the bottom of the eighth inning, going 2.0 innings and allowing five earned runs on six hits... however, he did get one strikeout to end the top of the ninth inning.

After Yasiel Puig went down swinging, Jose Ramirez hit a grand slam to center, giving the Indians an early 3-0 lead. After a mound visit, Green allowed another home run to Jason Kipnis, ending Green's night with just one out recorded and five earned runs.

With the Yankees rolling along toward a division title, fans are naturally turning their thoughts to the playoff rotation. This year, it's a particularly hot topic because the general manager declined to add to it at the trade deadline.

The Yankees insist, both publicly and in private, that they haven't begun to think in earnest about the playoff roster and rotation -- though we can report, as we did in June, that the team is eyeing a Chad Green/Luis Severino game, provided the latter is healthy.

Yankees notes

The Yankees are up to a 10-1 overall record this season in extending outings for the bullpen. ...

The Yankees will go with a bullpen outing against the Cleveland Indians on Thursday as Chad Green gets the ball first on the mound.

Green has led the way for the Yanks this season when the bullpen gets the extended nod. He's typically not out there long, his last time in this spot, on Monday against the Baltimore Orioles, Green only tossed 11 pitches in 1.1 innings. 

Green's undoubtedly been effective in this unique role, as has the entire bullpen that has a 10-1 record this season during such games.

The Yankees swept their doubleheader with the Orioles on Monday, thanks to an 11-8 victory in game two. It's the fifth time in six tries that the Bombers have won both games of a twin bill. >> Box Score

Six takeaways from Monday's game two...

1) When Orioles fans fall asleep at night, they're likely to be haunted by nightmares of Gleyber Torres. After going deep in game one, the infielder launched a pair of three-run home runs in game two and now has a staggering 13 home runs against Baltimore this season. Only Lou Gehrig had more against an opponent in one season, when the Iron Horse hit 14 homers against the Indians in 1936. Torres has tortured the Orioles so much that, with his team trailing by five and runners on first and second with two outs in the eighth, manager Brandon Hyde opted to intentionally walk him.

Five takeaways from Saturday's game...

In a scoreless game in the top of the fourth inning, Sanchez stayed back on a Jacob Waguespack slider, slamming a solo home run to left-center. Sanchez's 25th home run of the season put the Yankees on top 1-0. Overall, Sanchez went 1-4 at the plate with a couple of strikeouts.

The Yankees spread the offensive production all around the lineup Sunday, getting hits from eight of nine starters in a 7-4 win over the Red Sox, completing a four-game sweep. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Sunday's game

1) The Yankees blew the game wide open in the third inning, plating six runs and knocking David Price out of the game early. The third started innocently enough, with an Aaron Judge walk sandwiched between a Gleyber Torres strikeout and a flyout from Didi Gregorius. But Gio Urshela powered a two-run homer to left-center and the Yankees were off and running. Urshela's homer was followed by back-to-back doubles from Brett Gardner and Cameron Maybin, giving the Yankees a 4-0 lead. Mike Ford singled in Maybin to make it 5-0, and then Kyle Higashioka got in on the act with an RBI double of his own. When Mike Tauchman's single made it 7-0, the Yankees had collected four straight RBI hits.

The Yankees swept a doubleheader from the Red Sox led by the red-hot Gleyber Torres but lost Edwin Encarnacion and Aaron Hicks to injuries

Gleyber Torres powered the Yankees to a 6-4 win, completing a Saturday doubleheader sweep for the Yankees over the Red Sox. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Saturday's Game Two

1) As injuries have continued to mount for the Yankees, Gleyber Torres has continued to lead the way on the field. On a team with names like Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge, Torres has become perhaps the biggest star on the team. The 22-year-old lifted a pair of home runs for the Yankees on Saturday, the second of which tied the game at 4-4 in the bottom of the 5th. He then hit another ball off the top of the wall in right field, coming within inches of his third home run. Torres has now homered three times in this series with the Red Sox.

The Yankees' big-league roster looks exactly the same after the MLB trade deadline as it did when the day started. The team did make a very minor move, adding minor league lefty Alfredo Garcia from the Colorado Rockies, but they did not add any pitching to a rotation that looks dangerously shallow. That doesn't mean that the club can't still improve., though.

Instead, the Yankees will have to improve from inside the organization if they want to win the World Series. Here's how the Yankees can still get better without surrendering any talent in the meantime:

Five takeaways from Thursday's game

1) Early in the game, things almost got away from the Yankees. In a full bullpen outing, Chad Green got the ball to start the game on the mound for New York. Austin Meadows singled to start the game, then the bases were quickly loaded as Tommy Pham walked and Green plunked Nate Lowe with a pitch. The Yanks stuck with Green though, and he delivered. Green sent down the next three batters, including two punch outs, to keep the game scoreless

The Yankees (59-33, 5.0 GA in AL East) are hosting the division foe Tampa Bay Rays (56-40, 5 GB in AL East) on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.  

Yankees notes

Edwin Encarnacion mashed two homers against the Rays on Tuesday. He's hitting just .158 since joining the Yankees on June 17, but has a pair of two-hit, three-RBI games in his three appearances since the All-Star break... Aaron Hicks has gotten hot in July, posting a slash line of .342/.432/.656... Chad Green has also also settled down this month, allowing just one run in 7.1 innings, including two scoreless innings on Monday... Aaron Judge has made his hits against the Rays count this season. Though he's just 2-for-16 against Tampa Bay, both of his hits have been home runs.

The Yankees have been engaged for weeks in the starting pitching market, and would still prefer to land a Zack Wheeler, Trevor Bauer, or one of the other available arms who could help with the rotation. This remains the surest way to bolster their championship chances.

But given the state of the market, the team has been forced to consider other options. According to multiple general managers in search of pitching, the asking prices for Wheeler, Stroman and the like remain very high, and teams are far apart on value.

That's why, according to sources, the Red Sox and A's settled for less exciting acquisitions in Andrew Cashner and Homer Bailey. Those teams essentially looked at the asks for higher-end help and said, "forget it, we'll go with depth."

Pitchers took over the game after early scoring, but the Rays edged out the Yankees 2-1. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Sunday's game

1) James Paxton took a bit to settle in against the Rays. In the first inning, he allowed two runs and started the contest allowing back-to-back doubles to Travis d'Arnaud and Tommy Pham. D'Arnaud scored on Pham's double, and Pham reached home when Avisail Garcia later grounded out. Paxton stopped the bleeding in the frame with two strikeouts to end the inning there, and had a solid outing the rest of the way. In total, Paxton notched 11 strikeouts, including a sixth inning showcase. With runners on first and third with no outs, Paxton struck out the side.

2) While Paxton had the Rays guessing at the plate, his the Yankees were doing the same against Charlie Morton. The Yankees nearly matched the amount of Rays the struck out against the starting pitcher on the day, as Morton fanned 10 batters he faced. The Yankees and Rays were struck out 14 and 13 times, respectively, in game.

Five takeaways from Wednesday's game

1) After about one month on the injured list, Domingo German got off to a rough start, allowing a home run on his first pitch of the ball game. However, the Mets would get nothing more off of German, who looked much like the pitcher he was in the beginning of the season the rest of the way. German finished with 80 pitches (56 strikes) and generated 13 swings and misses (seven from his curveball) en route to six strikeouts and zero walks.

Three days after Luke Voit suffered an abdominal strain, the Yankees have placed him on the IL, retroactive to June 30.

Voit, who left Saturday's game in London against the Red Sox after limping while on the bases, was a recent All Star Game snub along with Gleyber Torres.

Mike Ford was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Voit's spot on the 25-man roster. The Yanks also sent Chad Green to Triple-A and recalled Nestor Cortes Jr.

1) This was the first time in Yankees-Red Sox history where both teams scored six runs in the first inning, which was highlight by Aaron Hicks blasting the first MLB home run in London with a two-run shot off Rick Porcello. It was also just the third time in MLB history where both starting pitchers allowed six-plus runs and were unable to get out of the first inning.

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.

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.
