The Yankees (83-44, 10.0 GA in AL East) continue their nine-game road trip on the West Coast in Oakland against the Athletics (72-53, 8.0 GB in AL West, 0.0 GB in Wild Card) on Wednesday at 10:07 p.m.

Yankees notes

After Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the A's, the Yankees aim to end their two-game skid, which includes Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians. They notched 11 hits but managed only two runs, both coming on solo shots by DH Gary Sanchez and RF Aaron Judge in the top of the first and eighth innings, respectively. Despite Tuesday's loss, the Yankees remained 10 games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East and maintained a tie with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the MLB's best record at 83-44.

Late Wednesday afternoon I was talking to an executive from an American League team about the Yankees and their potential pitching plan for October, when he suggested I take a look at the box score of the Red Sox-Indians game that had been over for about an hour. 

"Boston used seven pitchers and won the game 5-1," the exec said. "Seven pitchers, one run. That's taking the 'opener' strategy to an extreme, but I wouldn't be surprised at all to see the Yankees try a formula like that in the postseason.

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.

Yankees notes

The Yankees brought Thairo Estrada up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and he's getting action right away in the ninth hole today while playing second base. ...Aaron Boone gave some positive injury updates, with CC Sabathia the best one. He'll return to the rotation on Sunday after dealing with right knee inflammation. ...Giancarlo Stanton also continues to progress, as he's close to running off the anti-gravity treadmill for the first time. ...Luke Voit was also seen taking grounders and hitting in the cage today. He could move on to Tampa or Scranton soon to continue his rehab.

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.

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 Tuesday's game

1) J.A. Happ gave up three runs on eight hits through 6.0 innings of work. The left-hander struck out only two batters Tuesday night, and gave up a solo homerun to Christian Walker. The loss makes Happ's record now 8-6 on the season.

The Yankees (67-38, 8.5 GA in AL East) start up their two-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks (53-54, 15.5 GB in NL West) Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees notes

After losing three straight games, the Yankees bounced back to beat the Boston Red Sox 9-6 on Sunday night thanks to a strong pitching performance by Domingo German. The RHP struck out nine batters in 5.1 innings, while allowing just three runs. Didi Gregorious continued his strong July by hitting his fourth homerun of the month, giving him a total of seven on the season. Aaron Judge will look to find his groove again, after going 1-for-19 in the four-game series.

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 (65-35, 9.5 GA in AL East) finish their three-game series against the Twins (61-39, 3 GA in AL Central) Wednesday at 8:10 p.m. at Target Field.

Yankees notes

In Tuesday's 14-12 win, Didi Gregorius joined just Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio as the only players with multiple four-hit, 7 RBI games with Yankees... Despite being credited with the win Tuesday, Aroldis Chapman walked three and blew the save. In his last seven appearances, he's allowed six runs and walked seven over 6.2 innings... With Brett Gardner still ailing, Mike Tauchman will be back in the lineup boasting a robust .410/.489/.641 slash line in his last 15 games (39 at-bats).

Six takeaways from Friday's game

1) The Yankees trailed early after the Rockies jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, but Edwin Encarnacion strode to the plate in the third with the bases loaded and quickly put the Yankees on top. Encarnacion was behind in the count 1-2 and got a good changeup from Kyle Freeland located down and away, but the right-handed hitter muscled it just over the wall in left for his 12th career grand slam. Only Albert Pujols, with 14 grand slams, has more among active players.

The Yankees (62-33, 8 GA in AL East) are hosting the Colorado Rockies (46-50, 16.5 GB in NL West) on Friday at 7:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.  

Yankees notes

Gio Urshela continues to make an impact in the Yankee lineup. His 3-for-4, three-RBI performance in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader was the catalyst for a Yankee win... Luke Voit supplied the power in Game 2, as the slugging first baseman launched his 18th homer of the season off of Rays pitcher Charlie Morton. Voit has already surpassed his previous career highs in home runs, RBIs and doubles... DJ LeMahieu will face the Rockies for the first time since joining the Yankees this season. The infielder, who spent seven seasons with Colorado, was a two-time All-Star, a three-time Gold Glove Award-winner and won the batting title in 2016. Aaron Boone will not be in the dugout tonight while he serves a one-game suspension following his ejection in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader.

Just about a half hour before first pitch was scheduled between the Yankees and Rays, Wednesday's game was officially postponed due to rain in the forecast.

The Yankees and Rays will hold a doubleheader on Thursday, starting at 3:00 p.m. The Yankees were scheduled to pitch Domingo German on Wednesday night, with J.A. Happ set to go on Thursday. Aaron Boone said on Wednesday night that German is scheduled to pitch the first game on Thursday, while the second game starter is still up in the air, and could be an opener.

The Yankees rallied in the ninth to avoid a shutout, but it was not enough as they fell to the Blue Jays, 2-1, on Saturday at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Saturday's game

1) The Yankees would certainly like to see more of this J.A. Happ. The left-hander, who entered the game with a 6.29 ERA at home this season, tossed 5.1 innings, allowing just two runs on five hits and striking out five. Happ left the game with two runners on in the sixth inning and the two runs came when Adam Ottavino allowed a two-out bloop single to Randall Grichuk to break a scoreless tie.

Since June 9, Gardner is hitting .329/.421/.671 with seven home runs and 20 RBI. ... Edwin Encarnación is coming off his best game with the Yankees, going 2-for-4 with three RBI, including a bases loaded double against his former team in a 4-0 win.

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.

Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge may well be on their way back to the Yankees lineup, but it is the Bombers' starting pitching that is in greater need of a jolt. 

CC Sabathia lasted just 4.2 innings in Friday night's 10-2 loss to the White Sox, allowing six runs -- five earned -- on 10 hits and three walks raising his ERA to 4.42 on the season. Sabathia is 0-3 with a 6.89 ERA with hitters batting .375 against him in his last three starts. 

The Yankees have now lost seven of their last 10 and have fallen out of first place in the AL East but manager Aaron Boone is not ready to sound the alarm bells just yet on his starting rotation.

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.

The Yankees beat to the Blue Jays, 6-2, at Rogers Centre. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Thursday's game

1) J.A. Happ has been incredibly and disappointingly inconsistent this season, but he stepped up as the stopper for the Yankees Thursday helping to end a three-game losing. Happ went seven innings (102 pitches, 69 strikes), allowing just one run on four hits to pick up his sixth win of the season. Happ now owns a 4.48 ERA.

The Yankees (38-22, 1.0 GA in AL East) try to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Blue Jays (23-38, 15.5 GB in AL East) on Thursday at 7:07 p.m. at Rogers Centre.

Yankees notes

Gleyber Torres is not in the starting lineup due to soreness in his left shoulder. According to Aaron Boone, Torres is available off the bench. ... This series against the Blue Jays is the first series the Yankees have lost since they were swept in two games by the Diamondbacks on April 30th-May 1st. ... Before dropping their last three road games, the Yankees had won seven straight away from the Bronx.... Gary Sanchez launched his 19th home run of the season on Wednesday, surpassing his season total from 2018.

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 Red Sox, 4-1, Friday night at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Friday's game...

1)  DJ LeMahieu has been a key component to the Yankees this season and he was a major contributor tonight. LeMahieu roped an RBI-double off the wall in the third inning and then a solo home run in the fifth inning. LeMahieu, who also made another stellar play at second base, is hitting a fabulous .317 on the season.

J.A. Happ isn't having the best start to his 2019 season.

His 5.09 ERA is the second-worst mark of his career, he's allowed the sixth-most home runs in the MLB, and his strikeout rate is at its lowest mark since 2016.

Why, then, do the Yankees have total confidence throwing him out there against the Red Sox in one of the most important games of the season on Friday night? Well, this is what the Yankees acquired Happ to do...

After being rained out on Thursday, the Yankees (36-19, 0.5 GA in AL East) will open a three-game series against the Red Sox (29-26, 7.05 GB in AL East) Friday night at Yankee Stadium at 7:05 p.m. 

Yankees notes

The Yankees enter the series having won nine of their last 11 games and their last eight series'. ... Chris Sale has had great success against the Yankees in his career, but Kendrys Morales will DH tonight, who has a career .268 average with three home runs and seven RBI against Sale in 41 at-bats. ... Aaron Hick also has decent numbers against Sale, hitting .333 with two doubles. ... Gary Sanchez has homered in his last two games and is hitting .288/.352/.650 with nine home runs and 15 RBI in the month of May.

The Yankees are reportedly a frontrunner for free agent left-hander Dallas Keuchel, according to SNY's Andy Martino. The report doesn't necessarily come as a surprise, as New York has long had a clear need.

Staff ace Luis Severino is out for the foreseeable future, Domingo German will eventually face an innings limit, and the durability of James Paxton and CC Sabathia will be monitored.

If the team does sign the 31-year-old after the amatuer draft, they won't need to give up a compensatory pick. This is an important factor of potentially signing Keuchel, as any team interested will likely be more willing to add a large one-year deal, the kind he's been seeking...

The Yankees appear to be getting two critical pieces of their rotation back this week. 

LHP James Paxton was activated off the IL on Tuesday, with RHP Joe Harvey being optioned to Triple-A, and will start on Wednesday against the Padres while LHP CC Sabathia appears to be on the horizon as well, with the potential to pitch on Sunday against the Red Sox. 

While the Yankees have not announced their rotation beyond Wednesday, here is how it would likely play out with the Red Sox coming to town for a four-game set:

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.

Yankees notes

Aaron Hicks, who was set to make his season debut Monday after missing the first 40 games with a back injury, is not in the Game 1 lineup.

Over his last 14 games, he's 23-for-54 (.426) with one homer, four doubles, 11 RBI, five walks, 10 runs and two stolen bases.

When Domingo German stepped on the mound as a Yankee in 2018, the talent and the hint of potential success in the big leagues was evident. However, German failed to consistently deliver positive results and eventually fell out of favor down the stretch.

None of that matters to the Yankees now because it is clear that German gained valuable experience from all those major-league reps.

Another day, another washout for the Yankees. 

Tuesday's game against the Orioles was postponed due to inclement weather, a day after they postponed Monday's game against Baltimore due to unplayable field conditions. 

The team will make up Tuesday's game as part of a day-night doubleheader on Aug. 12, beginning at 1:05 p.m. and will play a single-admission doubleheader on Wednesday to make up Monday night's postponement.

1) Domingo German was cruising through four innings, but once the Rays lineup began its third time to the plate, things fell apart. German had surrendered just two home runs this season coming into the game, but allowed two homers in the fifth inning alone, which was enough to cough up the lead. German, who still got the win and is now 7-1, finished with a line of 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 BB and 5 K.
