Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Gleyber Torres all homered, but Didi Gregorius' fifth-inning grand slam was the big blow to the Dogers in the Yankees' 10-2 victory over Los Angeles on Friday. >> Box Score

Four takeaways from Friday's game

1) With the Yankees leading 2-1 in the fifth, Gregorius came to the plate with the bases loaded and took the first pitch he saw from Hyun-Jin Ryu deep to right field to break the game wide open. Gregorius added a second homer with the game well out of reach, a solo shot in the top of the ninth. The shortstop now has 13 home runs since making his season debut on June 7.

The Yankees (83-46, 8.0 GA in AL East) take on the Los Angeles Dodgers (85-44, 20.5 GA in NL West) at Dodger Stadium Friday at 10:10 p.m. to begin a three-game series with the two-time defending National League champions.

Yankees notes

Gleyber Torres went 4-for-4 with a pair of homers in Thursday's loss to the A's. He now has 31 home runs on the season... Gio Urshela had a rare down night, going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts... Aaron Judge reached base three times on Thursday, going 2-for-3 with a walk, but the three hitters behind him (Didi Gregorius, Urshela and Gary Sanchez) combined to go 1-for-12 behind him.

A big night from Gleyber Torres at the plate was not enough to prevent the sweep, as the A's topped the Yankees, 5-3, on Thursday night in Oakland. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Thursday's game

1) While throwing 109 pitches, Masahiro Tanaka only mustered six innings of work while laboring through a few innings, starting right out of the gate in the first. The A's plated three runs in the opening frame, which was helped by two walks from Tanaka, after he did not walk a single batter over his last two starts. Matt Olson grounded into a force out which scored Marcus Semien for the game's first run, then Mark Canha added a two-run single to left field.

Yankees notes

The Yankees held off the Indians for a 6-5 win Saturday afternoon, fueled by four home runs -- two from SS Gleyber Torres, whose 2-for-4 day at the plate featured two solo shots. In the third and fifth spots, respectively, 1B DJ LeMahieu and DH Didi Gregorious added homers to highlight the Yankees' eight-hit offensive performance.

Five takeaways from Saturday's game...

1) James Paxton struggled on Saturday afternoon, giving up four earned runs on six hits through 5.0 innings. He only struck out four batters, the lowest total he's had in a game since July 2 against the Mets when he struck out just three. Prior to this start, Paxton had been 3-0 in the month of August with a 2.89 ERA.

The 2019 season has been filled with highs for the Yankees, from DJ LeMahieu's spark at the top of the lineup, to the emergence of Gio Urshela, to Gleyber Torres' leap to stardom, among other storylines.

But it's been a frustrating campaign for Giancarlo Stanton, who's had to sit back and watch as the Yankees have slugged their way to the top of the AL East standings.

Stanton has appeared in just nine games this season, hampered by a myriad of injuries. After playing the first three games of the year against Baltimore, Stanton landed on the IL with a biceps injury. While rehabbing, he also had a shoulder issue and a calf injury that sidelined him further.

The Yankees defeated the Orioles 6-5 on Wednesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Wednesday's game...

1) J.A. Happ pitched much better compared to his last start, allowing six hits, striking out six, and allowing just two runs over 5.0 innings. This was a bounce back performance for Happ, who gave up six earned runs during his last outing against the Toronto Blue Jays on Aug. 9. This was his first start since July 19 that he allowed two or less runs.

Gleyber Torres' dominance over the Orioles has been on full display during their current four-game series in the Bronx. During the doubleheader on Monday, three homers left the yard to bring him to 13 on the season against Baltimore. 

But it was on Wednesday afternoon that the young infielder tied a long-time Yankee record. 

After roping a double, Torres became the first Yankee to record 17 extra-base hits against a single opponent since legend Mickey Mantle did it in 1957 against the White Sox. He had 18 extra-base hits that season.

On the verge of surpassing the numbers he notched as a rookie in 2018, Gleyber Torres has avoided anything close to a sophomore slump.

Highlighted by Monday's doubleheader sweep of the Orioles in which his three home runs and seven runs batted in fueled the Yankees' 8-5 and 11-8 wins, Torres continued to tear up Baltimore.

In 16 games against the Orioles, Torres has 13 homers, three doubles and 20 RBI with a slash line of .414/.485/1.138.

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.

The Yankees beat the Blue Jays 1-0 on Sunday afternoon at Rogers Centre behind Masahiro Tanaka's strong performance. >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Sunday's game...

1) Masahiro Tanaka got his eighth win of the season after allowing three hits and striking out four over 8.0 innings. The Yankees have now won 10 out of the last 11 games that Tanaka starts, dating back to June 11 of this season. Tanaka bounced back in a big way after giving up five earned runs and 10 hits in 5.1 innings of work in his last start on August 5 against the Orioles.

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.

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter |

In the first half of the 2009 season, Phillies left fielder Raul Ibanez was an MVP candidate, batting .312 in his first 285 plate appearances, with 22 home runs and a .968 OPS. Then he suffered a core injury that ended up being a sports hernia.

After a stint on the disabled list, Ibanez batted .232 in 285 plate appearances, with a .771 OPS and 12 home runs. He underwent offseason surgery, began swinging a bat again in January, and continued his slow recovery into the following season. Ibanez batted .243 in the first half of 2010, with a .723 OPS.

All of this is to say that the Yankees should be worried about Luke Voit (sports hernia) and to some extent Gleyber Torres (unspecified core issue). Even when players push through core injuries, as Torres did last night while going hitless in five at-bats and striking out twice, the discomfort can severely limit production.

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.

Gleyber Torres is the clean-up role for the Yankees on Monday against the Baltimore Orioles, one day after being hospitalized with a core issue. 

Torres was sent to New York-Presbyterian Hospital after leaving the Yankees' 7-4 win over the Boston Red Sox in the eighth inning on Sunday. Torres' father gave an indication later that evening that everything checked out OK, as he took to Twitter to give the positive update. 

Having the tweet translated, it read: "After the scare tonight, GT is leaving the hospital and everything is fine, the bus waits for him and they go straight to Baltimore."

What injuries? 

Those two words could serve as the Yankees' mantra season thus far. 

The list goes on and on when you look at the key components featured in this powerhouse lineup that have hit the IL. Currently, players like Edwin Encarnacion, Aaron Hicks, CC Sabathia, Giancarlo Stanton, Luke Voit and Gary Sanchez sit on the 10-day IL, while the likes of Miguel Andujar, Greg Bird, Dellin Betances, and Luis Severino are on the 60-day list.

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 (71-39, 7.5 GA in AL East) go for a four-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox (59-54, 13.5 GB in AL East) on Sunday at 7:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees notes

With two homers in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader, Gleyber Torres joined just Joe DiMaggio as the only Yankees to deliver five multi-home run games in one season before their 23rd birthday. His five multi-homer games are tied for the league lead, as well... Mike Tauchman added two RBI and is slashing a gaudy .417/.472/.750 over his last 15 games. He'll bat ninth in Sunday's lineup... Mike Ford rejoins the Yankees to replace the injued Edwin Encarnacion, batting seventh and playing first base.

Gleyber Torres' latest performance against the Red Sox on Saturday night was a simple reminder: He owns AL East opponents this season. 

The numbers don't lie when analyzing what Torres has contributed to the Yankees during their division games. Last night, his two-home run outing gave him his fifth multi-homer game of the season -- all of which have came against the AL East. 

It helps that the Orioles have been basically batting practice for Torres when you look at his splits. He's slashing .465/.540/1.233 with 10 homers and 13 RBI thus far. But overall, Torres' AL East stats come out to .321/.414/.654 with 16 home runs and 29 RBI...

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.

Yankees notes

Gleyber Torres provided all the offense the Yankees needed yesterday, lining a first-inning grand slam over the left field wall. It was his the second grand slam of his career... DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-4 to remain atop the Major League leaderboard with a .334 batting average... Brett Gardner returned to the lineup following a 10-game absence and went 0-for-3 with a walk... Aroldis Chapman had his first scoreless outing in three tries, tossing a 1-2-3 ninth to earn the save.

Aaron Boone and James Paxton comment on Paxton's strong outing in the Yankees 4-2 win over Boston

The Yankees received a quality start from James Paxton and some power from Gleyber Torres to beat the Red Sox 4-2 on Friday night. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Friday's game

1) Gleyber Torres turned the Yankees' two-run deficit to a two run lead in one swing. After a DJ LeMahieu single and a pair of walks, Torres launched a grand slam into the seats in left field. Torres' 21st homer of the season gave the Yankees the lead after one.

2) James Paxton entered the game coming off a pair of rough outing, including his last time out against the Red Sox, but he was tremendous on Friday. Over six innings, Paxton allowed a pair of runs on just two hits. The Red Sox scored twice in the first inning on a JD Martinez long ball, but Paxton settled down after that inning, striking out six hitters.

The Mets have fielded calls on many pitchers, including Zack Wheeler, Noah Syndergaard, Seth Lugo and Jason Vargas. But perhaps the biggest trade deadline development is the heavy interest in Edwin Diaz, which has increased the likelihood that he will be moved.

First, a mea culpa. A few days ago I tweeted that Diaz wasn't going anywhere -- which was the sense at the time through sources, but worded too definitively. The widespread interest, which reflects a belief in Diaz's talent over his mixed results this year, has increased the chances that Diaz will, in fact, go somewhere.

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.

The Yankees racked up 15 hits, including three home runs, to beat the Twins 10-7 on Wednesday at Target Field. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Wednesday's game...

1) Didi Gregorius stayed red hot on Wednesday. A night after he notched five hits and drove in seven, Gregorius doubled in Edwin Encarnacion in the second inning, scoring the Yankees' first run, and later followed it up with a triple in the fourth, scoring Aaron Judge and Aaron Hicks, pushing the Yankees' lead to 9-3. He finished the night 3-5 at the plate with 3 RBI.

2) Hicks continues to haunt his former team, slamming his 12th home run of the season in the third inning off of Jake Odorizzi. One night after his game-saving catch, Hicks went 2-5 with two RBI and two runs scored.

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.

Five takeaways from Saturday's game

1) DJ LeMahieu continues to live up to his nickname, posting another Machine-like three-hit performance. LeMahieu also walked, scoring a pair of runs on the afternoon. His batting average on the season is now .334 after singles in the first, third, and seventh innings. He set the table all day long for a Yankees lineup in which every starter reached base and five players recorded multi-hit games. LeMahieu also made a number of sparkling defensive plays.

Yankees first baseman Luke Voit was pulled from Saturday's game with the Colorado Rockies after being hit by a pitch in his mouth/jaw area.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, Voit was hit by a Chad Bettis fastball, as the ball may have skimmed his shoulder before making solid contact with his lip and jaw. Voit stayed in the game initially, coming around to score on a Gleyber Torres single. 

After the inning ended, Voit was replaced in the lineup by Gio Urshela, as DJ LeMahieu moved over to first base.

Five takeaways from Sunday's game

1) The long ball continues to plague Masahiro Tanaka, but the Yankees right-hander kept the damage to a minimum on Sunday. Tanaka allowed two solo home runs in the fifth inning, but other than that he pitched six strong innings, allowing just four hits and striking out five.

It seems hard to believe now, with the Yankees on a pace to win 105 games, that they lost series to the Orioles, Tigers, and White Sox in getting off to a 6-9 start amidst fears that injuries might wreck their season before Memorial Day.

Since then they've gone a mere 51-22 to establish themselves as the best team in the American League, getting unexpected contributions from the Urshelas, Tauchmans and Maybins of the baseball world that have made this more of a feel-good season than seemed possible with such huge expectations.

As such, any midterm review has to start with GM Brian Cashman, who created all this depth and versatility, as well as the most formidable bullpen in baseball, partly by spreading the Yankee money around on the likes of D.J. Lemahieu, Adam Ottavino, Zack Britton and others, rather than going all-in on Bryce Harper or Manny Machado.

The Yankees know a thing or two about winning. Even in the All-Star Game.

Aroldis Chapman, one of five Yankees to make the American League All-Star team, recorded the save as the AL beat the National League 4-3 on Tuesday at Progressive Field.

Chapman, making his sixth All-Star Game, joined teammates Gary SanchezDJ LeMahieuGleyber Torres and Masahiro Tanaka on the AL team, which won its seventh straight Midsummer Classic.

Gleyber Torres has done something that Derek Jeter has never done. Neither Alex Rodriguez. Ditto Nomar Garciaparra, Jose Reyes, Troy Tulowitzki. Not even Cal Ripken Jr. did it.

By starting his career with back-to-back All-Star Game selections, Torres has a leg up on each of those legendary shortstops.
However, Torres' path to the 2019 MLB All-Star Game did not come so easy. 

Although the 22-year-old middle infielder has put up better numbers this year than last, when he made the All-Star team while on the disabled list, Torres did not initially make the cut this season, which elicited an outcry from fans and teammates alike.

DJ LeMahieu and Gary Sanchez will both be out in the Progressive Field infield to start the 2019 MLB All-Star Game after being named starters for the American League. And AL manager, Red Sox skipper Alex Cora, announced where they will be hitting in the lineup as well. 

Cora places LeMahieu, the team's starting second baseman, in the No. 2 slot while Sanchez will be hitting further down than normal at No. 7. He also mentioned that Masahiro Tanaka will likely take over on the hill after Justin Verlander gets the start. 

LeMahieu and Sanchez blew out the primary voting for their respective position, as both Yankees are having solid seasons. LeMahieu, in particular, has been the biggest surprise for the pinstripes, hitting a team-high .336/.383/.518 with 12 homers and 63 RBI over 81 games thus far. That average also leads the American League.

Back in March I picked the Yankees to win the World Series against the Nationals, and thanks largely to Max Scherzer's spectacular June, broken nose and all, I've still got a chance to be right on both ends, as the Nats have come storming back from the dead.

In truth, as the season reaches the All-Star break, a Yankees-Dodgers World Series looks more realistic, and that would be great for baseball -- two glamorous franchises renewing October hostilities for the first time since 1981.

Yankees LHP CC Sabathia will make one more trip to Cleveland ... and the All-Star Game.

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred announced Sabathia will be honored during Tuesday's All-Star Game for "his contributions to the game and his longtime service to the community."

Sabathia will not join one of the four Yankees playing in the All-Star game; those are Gary Sanchez, DJ LeMahieu, Aroldis Chapman and Gleyber Torres. However, he will be celebrated given he announced he will retire at the end of the season.

The Yankees (54-29, 5.5 GA in AL East) face the Mets (39-47, 11 GB in NL East, 6 GB in NL wild card) in the final Subway Series game of 2019 on Wednesday at 7:10 p.m. at Citi Field.

Yankees notes

In eight games since being activated off the injured list with an oblique strain, Aaron Judge is hitting .296/.441/.519 with two home runs and six RBIs. ... Gleyber Torres is 9-for-20 with one home run and three RBIs during his six-game hitting streak. ... Tuesday's game was the first time in 31 games that the Yankees did not hit a home run. That streak broke the 2002 Texas Rangers' previous record of 27 games.

Well, it's about time. 

Gleyber Torres has been named to the American League All-Star team to replace Rays' 2B Brandon Lowe, who hit the IL on Wednesday with a right shin contusion. 

Yankees manager Aaron Boone told the media on Wednesday that "it's a joke" he wasn't elected to the team.

Torres not worried with ASG snub 00:01:43
New York Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres believed he was worthy of an All-Star selection but isn't going to cry over being snubbed.

The Yankees rebounded from Tuesday's loss to beat the Mets 5-1 on Wednesday at Citi Field. >> Box score

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.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone has a big problem with the fact Gleyber Torres isn't an All-Star.

The Yankees infielder, who ranks eighth in the American League in OPS and leads all AL second basemen in homers (19), wasn't selected to the AL All-Star roster on Sunday and wasn't among three roster replacements the league announced on Wednesday.

Before Wednesday's game against the Mets, Boone told reporters, "It's a joke he's not on that team. Gleyber Torres not an All-Star? You can kick rocks on that one. ... Doesn't seem right to me he's not on that team."

5 takeaways from Tuesday's game...

1) Adam Ottavino couldn't hold the Yankees 2-1 lead in the eighth inning, due to an infield error and a bullet double to the center field wall by J.D. Davis. Zack Britton came on with the bases loaded and promptly allowed a two-run double to Michael Conforto that gave the Mets a 4-2 lead.

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.

Every year, the MLB All-Star Game fan vote brings an equal amount of excitement and outrage. The story is usually the same from year to year -- players who shouldn't make the team end up making it, while players who appear to be locks, don't.

Such is the case again in 2019. This years crop of notable snubs (Fernando Tatis Jr, Luke Voit, Xander Boegarts) are no different, and it is Gleyber Torres' omission that stands out the most for Yankees fans.

The 22-year-old infielder has quickly cemented his status as one of the games brightest young players, the same group that includes the likes of Ronald Acuna Jr and Juan Soto, among others. His national prominence is somewhat quieted by the sheer starpower and production found throughout the Yankees' lineup, but his numbers speak for themselves.
