Mets rout Cubs 00:01:30
Pete Alonso tied a Mets club record with his 26th HR while Jeff McNeil and Todd Frazier each had 3 RBI as the Mets pounded the Cubs, 10-2

The Mets clubbed three home runs on Saturday to beat the Cubs 10-2 at Wrigley Field. >> Box score

Five things to know from Saturday's game...

1) Pete Alonso's historic rookie season continued as he tied the Mets' rookie home run record of 26 held by Darryl Strawberry in the first inning to give the Mets a 1-0 lead. Alonso also now holds the most home runs by a National League rookie before the All-Star break and is on pace for 54 home runs, which would break Aaron Judge's rookie home run record of 52.

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 Yankees are already active in trade talks with other teams, but have not yet been able to agree on a deal for their top priority, a starting pitcher. It's clear to rivals, though, that Brian Cashman will not move Clint Frazier for a free-agent-to-be like Madison Bumgarner or Zack Wheeler.

As SNY has reported, the Yankees like Wheeler, understanding that his season has been better than some of his statistics suggest. The rumor mill has linked the Yanks to Bumgarner, though the club's actual interest in the San Francisco lefty has been lukewarm so far.

The Yanks are also willing to deal Frazier in the right situation, but will be very careful in doing so. He is an above-average major league hitter with five years of team control remaining before free agency. Simply put, the Yankees will not move years of Frazier for a few months of a Wheeler or Bumgarner, according to multiple major league sources.

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.

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.

"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."

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.

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 (41-26, 0.5 GA in AL East) play their second of four games in Chicago against the White Sox (33-34, 12.0 GB in AL Central) on Friday at 8:10 p.m.

Yankees notes

Brett Gardner has now hit three home runs in his last four games. ...

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 squandered a four-run lead and lost to the White Sox, 5-4, at Guaranteed Rate Field.>> Box score

5 takeaways from Thursday's game...

1) J.A. Happ cruised through the first three innings, ran into trouble in the fourth, but got out of it unscathed. The fifth inning was where it all came undone for Happ as he allowed four runs, highlighted by Tim Anderson's three-run homer. Yankees starters having become completely unreliable and it is adversely affecting the rest of the club by making relievers work harder and the offense press to score more runs than should be necessary to win games.

After some shotty outfield play against the Red Sox, Clint Frazier didn't do himself any justice by avoiding the media that same night. But, while Yankees GM Brian Cashman didn't approve of Frazier's actions, he's liked his answer to the critics on the field. 

Frazier said last week, "I don't owe an apology for not talking," following his ducking of the media. Many criticized that move, noting that it is normally the Yankee way to own up to mistakes and get them out of the way. 

Cashman was on WFAN radio Monday, and discussed the "turbulence" Frazier created for himself. But he wasn't too fazed by it due to his bat staying hot through all the noise...

1) Pete Alonso blasted the Mets into a quick 3-0 lead in the blink of an eye. After Jeff McNeil doubled to start the game, J.D. Davis blooped a single to left, setting up Alonso in a big spot. As he's done all season long, the rookie answered the call, slamming a three-run shot to left-center field. Alonso's 22nd home run of the season gave Jason Vargas three runs to work with before taking the mound.

The Yankees love Zack Wheeler because, well, what team in need of pitching wouldn't? 

His stuff is among the best in the league, and he has finally learned how to be consistent.

The Yanks have soured a bit on Noah Syndergaard, who they pursued over the winter, and toward Wheeler. They would love to pry him from the Mets and dump Clint Frazier -- and none of that changed after Wheeler's dud in Game 1 of Tuesday's Subway doubleheader.

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 were only ever interested in taking a flier on Dallas Keuchel, and their highest bid was a prorated version of the one-year, $17.9 million qualifying offer, according to major league sources.

He signed with the Atlanta Braves for more: one year, $13 million - not prorated - per Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports.

Now, the Yankees are pivoting to the trade market, with Clint Frazier as their most marketable piece. Expect the young outfielder to be mentioned in many discussions over the next several weeks.

Frazier told reporters on Tuesday that he didn't speak because he believes he's been treated unfairly by the media. Frazier also said that he doesn't believe he owes anyone an apology for his actions.

Clint Frazier homered but Masahiro Tanaka could not hold the lead as the Yankees fell to the Blue Jays 4-3 at Rogers Centre on Tuesday. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game

1) Masahiro Tanaka went from a four-inning shutout to allowing four runs in the fifth inning, courtesy of two home run balls. Tanaka's unraveling was exacerbated by an overturned call at second base and then a very poor non-strike call by home plate umpire Angel Hernandez. Tanaka's final line - 6 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 2 BB and 2 K - looks worse than he pitched for most of the night, but sometimes it only takes one bad inning to lose a game.

Frazier 'alienating' teammates 00:01:18
New York Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier avoids the media after bad performances. SNY's Andy Martino says teammates have not been happy.

Clint Frazier upset his Yankees teammates and the organization by not fielding questions after misplaying three balls in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Red Sox, according to SNY's Andy Martino.

"What he's doing there by not talking -- and trust me on this -- he's alienating teammates who already roll their eyes at this guy for a number of reasons," Martino said on Monday, a day after Frazier committed one error and misjudged two more fly balls that all led to run-scoring plays.

Frazier, who is tied for the MLB lead with three errors among right fielders, let an Eduardo Nunez single roll under his glove and to the wall, allowing Michael Chavis to score from first and Nunez to reach third.

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.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone attributed Clint Frazier's lapses on defense to putting too much pressure on himself after the outfielder misplayed three balls in right field in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Red Sox.

Though Frazier went 2-for-4 to improve his batting line to .272/.319/.517, he committed one fielding error and misplayed two more line drives that led to run-scoring plays.

"Maybe pressing a little bit out there," Boone said, according to the New York Times' James Wagner. "He's working his tail off. He's making strides out there but there's been some mistakes along the way, too. That's part of continuing to develop a young player."

The Mets' Dominic Smith and Yankees' Clint Frazier are both finally starting to play up to their potential. The only problem is that there does not seem to be enough room on either roster to move the players. 

Smith, who has been used more as a pinch-hitter, is hitting .345/466/.500 with a home run and six RBI in 58 plate appearances this year. 

Frazier, on the other hand, is in a starting role now and hitting .284/.324/.552 with 10 home runs and 28 RBI but could be resorted to the fifth outfielder on the team once Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton return from their injuries.

Stop me if you've heard this one before -- a young Yankees player with an electric offensive profile but leaves much to be desired in the field, causing fans concern and giving his manager no choice but to pull him from games late.

Ring a bell?

It sure sounds a lot like Miguel Andujar in 2018. Though he was a top hitter on the team, his defense cost the team some runs and led to him being pulled from games. History is repeating itself this year.

The Yankees beat the Royals, 7-3, in Game 1 of a day/night doubleheader at Kauffman Stadium. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Saturday's game...

1) J.A. Happ was electric (he retired 15 straight batters at one point) through one-out into the sixth inning, but ran into a three-hitter rut, which ended on a game-tying three-run home run off the bat of Whit Merrifield. Happ recorded 19 swinging strikes (14 with his four-seam fastball, spotted all over the zone), which is by far the best he's accomplished this season. Happ finished with a solid enough line of 6 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 0 BB and 10 K and recorded his fourth win of the season.

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 Yankees (30-17, 2.0 GA in AL East) set out to continue their dominance against the Baltimore Orioles (15-33, 15.5 GB) on Wednesday at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Yankees notes

Gary Sanchez has feasted on Orioles' pitching in 2019, slamming eight home runs against Baltimore, six of which have come at Camden Yards. ... Clint Frazier bounced out of a 6-40 slump with two home runs against the Orioles on Tuesday, his seventh and eighth long balls of the season. ... DJ LeMahieu remains an absolute hitting machine for the Bronx Bombers, as his three hits last night now give him an AL-best 18 multi-hit games on the season.

The Yankees came back to beat the Orioles 10-7 in a messy game Monday at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. >> Box score

Five takeaway's from Monday's game

1) The Yankees, down 6-1 at one point, scored seven unanswered runs from the sixth inning onward, scoring five of those runs off of Orioles closer Mychal Givens. The big blow was Gary Sanchez's two-out, three-run home run that gave the Yankees the lead. For Sanchez, it was his 13th home run of the season; he now has 26 RBIs on the season.

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?"

With the division lead on the line, the Yankees couldn't take down the Rays for the second straight night, losing 7-2 at Tropicana Field. >> Box score

Five Takeaways from Saturday's game...

1) CC Sabathia got the start in this one, and it was the long ball that did him in. Luckily, it was only two solo shots that were hit off the big lefty that totaled his earned runs on the night. Overall, his line read five innings, three hits, two earned, four walks, and two strikeouts.

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.

So Gio Gonzalez is a Milwaukee Brewer, finally, and it appears that Dallas Keuchel's asking price would still have to drop considerably for either the Yankees or Mets to consider signing him.

Yet it's a good bet that both local teams will be in the market for another starting pitcher come the July 31 trade deadline.

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 look to sweep their four-game series at the Angels Thursday night at 9:07 p.m.

Yankees notes

The Yankees erased a five-run deficit Wednesday night to earn their sixth straight win, an impressive run considering the number of injuries they've been dealing with. That number grew Wednesday as Clint Frazier hurt his ankle and landed on the injured list. ... DJ LeMahieu had a badly needed big night at the plate, going 2-for-4 with three RBI, driving in the go-ahead run in the ninth with a single. LeMahieu was just 3-for-37 over his last nine appearances.

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.
