It was a picturesque day in the Bronx for the Yankees classic Old Timer's Day. And this one was extra special due to it being Mariano Rivera's first ever Old Timer's Day game. 

While some of the best Yankees in years past were announced before the game took place, the day was dedicated to Rivera with each Old Timer wearing his No. 42 on the back of their jerseys. Rivera is coming off a Hall of Fame vote that made him the first unanimous inductee in history. 

All eyes were on Rivera when he took the mound in the first inning, and of course, Enter Sandman was played over the speakers...

Rivera also got his shot at the plate, and though he never recorded a hit in his Major League career, he roped an inside-the-park home run to right-center field.  

The first of hopefully many was a success for Mo.

Deivi Garcia's Triple-A debut on Sunday caught the attention of many, including Yankees skipper Aaron Boone.

Prior to Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay, Boone was asked about Garcia's debut, when the 20-year-old right-hander allowed three earned runs over five innings, striking out six Columbus Clippers along the way.

"Good first Triple-A start," said Boone. "[He] had a presence. I actually watched probably a little over an inning of it, just to watch his stuff. Wasn't as dominant as we've seen in some of his outings, but I think a very good first showing in Triple-A. 

"One of the reports said he had really good presence. He flashed all the pitches that have made him really special so far this year, so a good first outing for him to go get a win and throw strikes and rack up some punch outs too."

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."

Dellin Betances and Luis Severino have been waiting very patiently in the dugout and clubhouse to finally pick up their gloves again. And Monday was finally that time to hit the field for some catch.

"I greeted them with 'happy throwing day,'" manager Aaron Boone told The Athletic's Lindsey Adler

Both pitchers, who have been on the IL since the start of the season, were seen in right field throwing a baseball for the first time since being activated over the weekend. It was just to get the blood flowing again, with 25 throws from 60 feet.

Travis d'Arnaud nearly missed the team bus to Yankee Stadium on Monday, and the Yankees probably wish he had. 

The Tampa Bay Rays catcher has suddenly emerged as a new Yankee-killer in the past month. D'Arnaud has four home runs in his last eight at-bats against the Yankees, which include a walk-off home run and a ninth inning, three-run go-ahead shot on Monday night that doomed the Bombers in a 5-4 loss. 

D'Arnaud was responsible for driving in all five of Tampa Bay's runs, with two solo home runs off James Paxton, finishing the night 3-for-3 with a walk. He became the first catcher to hit three home runs in a game out of the leadoff spot, per Elias Sports Bureau.

For the first time all season, the Yankees lost a game with a lead after eight innings, falling to the Rays, 5-4, Monday night at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Monday's game

1) Aroldis Chapman blew the save for the Yankees as the closer allowed back-to-back singles to start the inning, before striking out the next to batters, before bringing up Travis d'Arnaud. The Rays catcher had already homered twice and after falling behind in the count, d'Arnaud lifted a 3-2 slider into right field to give the Rays a 5-4 lead.

With Mets talent evaluator Omar Minaya on hand, Yankees pitching prospect Deivi Garcia made his Triple-A debut Monday against the Columbus Clippers.

The right-hander tossed five innings, yielding three runs and six hits while walking one and striking out six, and earned the win, a 6-4 victory.

After allowing back-to-back singles and a sac fly to begin the game, Garcia escaped further trouble after striking out Brandon Barnes to begin a "strike 'em out, throw 'em out" double play.

As the July 31 trade deadline approaches, Yankees top prospect Estevan Florial's name is sure to come up. 

The 21-year-old outfielder is hitting .229/.282/.359 with four home runs and 17 RBI in 34 games this season with High-A Tampa. 

While the numbers do not quite jump off the stat sheet, it is just the 34 games played this season -- and just 84 last season -- that really seems to stick out to evaluators.

The Mets are sending their most trusted evaluator, former GM Omar Minaya, to scout the Triple-A debut of Yankees pitching prospect Deivi Garcia on Monday night, according to major league sources.

The Yankees promoted Garcia, their top pitching prospect, after he started the Futures Game in Cleveland last week. At 20 years old, Garcia is the youngest player in Triple-A.

The Mets and Yankees have had many discussions about Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler, stretching back to last winter. The Yankees will not trade Garcia for a rental player like Wheeler, who will be a free agent after this season.

The Yankees (59-32, 6.0 GA in AL East) are hosting division foe Tampa Bay Rays (55-40, 6 GB in AL East) on Monday at 7:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium. 

Yankees notes

Aaron Judge is off to a solid start to the second half.

Sanchez is 5-for-17 with four home runs and seven RBI against the reigning AL Cy Young award winner. ... Brett Gardner has also fared well against Snell, with six hits in 19 at-bats, inlcuding a home run. Gardner enters the game on a seven-game hitting streak.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman's search for starting pitching is set to heat up over the next two and a half weeks.

The Red Sox made the first move ahead of the July 31 deadline, acquiring Orioles starter Andrew Cashner for two low-level prospects. A relatively quiet deal, the trade could be a foreshadowing of what is to come -- an arms race. This years crop of back-end options is shaping up to feature names like Mike Minor and Jason Vargas, while the high profile arm search has focused on Trevor Bauer, Zack Wheeler, Marcus Stroman and Madison Bumgarner.

Bumgarner, who turns 30 on August 1, has frequently been linked to the Yankees and Twins. According to Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic, one scenario the Giants have discussed regarding a potential Bumgarner deal is to acquire "players at roughly the same level as their top prospects at High A - catcher Joey Bart, outfielder Heliot Ramos, etc."

During the All-Star break, the Yankees and Red Sox were both talking to the Mets about Zack Wheeler, setting up a potential race between division rivals to acquire the pitcher.

Then, when the Sox acquired righty starter Andrew Cashner from Baltimore on Saturday, it left rivals to wonder if that took them out of the Wheeler sweepstakes.

That does turn out to be the case: According to major league sources, Boston is out on Wheeler now. With Cashner on board, the Sox expect to now look for bullpen help.

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.

The Boston Red Sox have gotten the wheels spinning for this year's MLB trade deadline.

The team announced on Saturday afternoon that they had acquired starting pitcher Andrew Cashner from the Orioles in exchange for two minor leaguers. Cashner has pitched to a 9-3 record with a 3.83 ERA in 17 starts with the Orioles this season.

This trade may have a ripple effect for both the Mets and Yankees.

It didn't seem like a big deal, a player known for his thoughtfulness sitting at his locker several hours before a game and reading a book. From a distance, the scene could hardly have been more routine.

But when you strolled closer to veteran catcher Chris Stewart that afternoon at Yankee Stadium in 2013, you saw that, whether he knew it or not, he was engaged in an act that would once have been unthinkable: He was a Yankee player openly reading "Ball Four" in the clubhouse.

Former Mets RHP Dwight Gooden was arrested for cocaine possession on June 7 in New Jersey, according to the New York Post.

The 54-year-old was charged with third-degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the Post. He was also charged with being under the influence. 

Gooden has battled substance abuse issues since 1986, when he missed the Mets' World Championship parade due to his drug use. He then missed the start of the 1987 season in order to undergo treatment for cocaine abuse. He was also suspended by MLB in 1994 for violating his drug aftercare program

The Yankees may be able to find some pitching help within their organization this season. 

GM Brian Cashman, who is searching for another starter on the trade market, acknowledged on Jim Duquette's SiriusXM radio show that 20-year-old prospect Deivi García is "pushing himself into the mix" for helping the team this year. 

Cashman also ruled out using García in a trade package for a mere rental. 

"Are we going to give up Deivi García for a rental somewhere? Clear not," he said.

The Yankees placed first baseman Luke Voit on the 10-day injured list prior to the All-Star break and he won't be there much longer, according to manager Aaron Boone.

Voit was injured (abdomen) running out a double against the Boston Red Sox during the team's London series earlier this month. Speaking to WFAN's Mike Francesa on Thursday, Boone said Voit will be returning by Monday at the latest.

"Voit will be sometime in the next couple of days. Probably won't be activated tomorrow. Might have him do one rehab game. We'll talk through that," Boone said. "He'll likely be back at some point this weekend or certainly first of next week."

The Yankees have one prospect listed on Keith Law of ESPN's midseason Top 50 prospects list, and it should come as no surprise that it's Deivi Garcia -- the diminutive strikeout machine who is now just one step away from the majors.

Law writes that Garcia, who is just 5'9", has been featuring a fastball that sits between 90 and 96 MPH but that hitters "cut through his fastball like he's throwing 105 with spin."

While Law is somewhat bearish on the ceiling of Garcia due to his small stature, he still heaps high praise on the 20-year-old.

Life is good for a baseball team that is 57-31, the best record in the American League. But while the Yankees might be favorites to go back to the World Series for the first time in a decade, that doesn't mean the second half of the regular season is just about lining up the playoff rotation.

Yes, even juggernauts have potential trouble areas and question marks. With that in mind, we offer five things to watch while the Yanks try to hold their sizable 6.5-game lead in the AL East over the season's final two and a half months.

Everyone knows that the Yankees need to acquire a starting pitcher. Guys like Madison Bumgarner, Marcus Stroman, Trevor Bauer and Zack Wheeler have all been linked to the Yanks, who may be another quality starting pitcher away from a championship. If you're a bettor, hammer the "over" on the Yankees acquiring one.

However, there's another way they can improve their pitching staff for the stretch run. Risky as it may be, the Yankees could try to catch lightning in a bottle by calling up 20-year-old phenom Deivi Garcia.

It sounds ridiculous, right? Throwing a 20-year-old rookie into the pressure of a pennant race in New York City? The kid isn't even old enough to drink the celebratory champagne that would be flowing in the clubhouse!

Former Yankees pitcher and author of the critically acclaimed book "Ball Four" Jim Bouton has passed away at the age of 80 after battling brain disease that had been linked to dementia.

Bouton pitched seven of his 10 big league seasons in Yankees pinstripes from 1962-68, winning 21 games and earning an All-Star nod in 1963. He won 55 games overall with the Yankees, posting a 3.36 ERA, and was a part of the 1962 World Series championship group.

Despite a lengthy career as pitcher, Bouton is more widely known for being the author of "Ball Four", one of the most acclaimed sports books ever written.

It has been a question to all pitchers so far this season: Does the baseball feel different? 

Well, you can add Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka to the group that feels something is off.

"Probably the right word to say is, it just doesn't feel right," Tanaka told NJ.com's Brendan Kuty through a translator.

With just over two weeks left till the MLB Trade Deadline is upon us, expect the hot stove to catch fire. Brian Cashman and the Yankees will once again be at the forefront of discussions in the days leading up to July 31.

The target? Starting pitching.

Last season brought J.A. Happ, while Sonny Gray served as 2017's big acquisition. This summer has the chance to be very different, though, as the Yankees aim to acquire an ace -- or close to it. In many ways, it could be the right summer to make the deal for an impact starter that the team has long sought.

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.

Marcus Stroman does not really "like" the Yankees, or at least any tweets suggesting he could play for them. 

The Blue Jays pitcher, who is a potential trade chip before the July 31 deadline, was on the defensive Tuesday before the MLB All-Star Game after he was caught "liking" a tweet from a Yankees blog that read, "Marcus Stroman might be the next #Yankees or #Twins ace."

"I think people read into likes a little too much," he told Brendan Kuty of NJ.com. "I just read the article. My likes in my Twitter are articles I can go back to and articles I can reference and I happened to read the article and it was praising me. It was saying a bunch of good things. ... not necessarily because it said I was coming to the Yankees. It said the Twins, too."

CC reflects on special moment 00:02:00
CC Sabathia had a special few days in Cleveland from throwing out the first pitch to a mound visit in the 9th. CC shared what it all means.

CC Sabathia may be retiring at the end of the season, but the left-hander does not plan to leave the Yankees any time soon. 

The 38-year-old, who was in Cleveland to be honored at the MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday, told reporters that he wants a front office job with the Yankees as soon as possible after his retirement. 

Sabathia said he is fully committed to retiring, but wants to stick around the stadium and continue to be around the team and has said he has been in GM Brian Cashman's ear about it, suggesting a special assistant role.

New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom, first baseman Pete Alonso and Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia take in the sights from the red carpet.

It was a perfect day in Cleveland as the red carpet was rolled out for the 2019 MLB All-Stars to walk and talk with the fans and media waiting for them. 

Among them was CC Sabathia and Aroldis Chapman, two Yankees hurlers that were accompanied by their family as they made their rounds. Sabathia had on his superhero threads with that went perfect with his Doernbecher Jordan 4s on his feet.

Chapman, on the other hand, had a nice white suit on with a glistening Cuban link chain to go with it...

Around this time two summers ago, the Yankees landed Sonny Gray. The trade with the A's was supposed to be the deal that landed them an ace. Gray's tenure in New York was ultimately a forgettable one, at points looking like he'd never return to the blossoming arm he was in Oakland.

Now with the Cincinnati Reds, Gray is an All-Star.

"I wouldn't change the ups and downs that I had experienced on a personal level and on the baseball field level," Gray said to Ken Davidoff of the New York Post. "Because coming back to an All-Star Game, it's just kind of, I can't describe the feeling. It's very special."

As baseballs fly out of ballparks at eye-popping, record-breaking levels and players openly accuse MLB of juicing the balls, commissioner Rob Manfred vehemently denied on Tuesday that the league had purposely altered the baseballs.

"Baseball has done nothing, given no direction, for an alteration of the baseball," Manfred said, noting that the league is still trying to figure out why the balls -- made by Rawlings -- are different this season.

"The flaw in logic is that baseball wants more home runs," Manfred explained. "If you sat in owners meetings and listen to people on how the game is played, that is not a sentiment of owners for whom I work. There's no desire among ownership to increase homers in the game -- to the contrary they are concerned about how many we have."

Question for Yankee Fans: Could you have believed DJ LeMahieu would be the starting second baseman for the AL All-Star team before the season started? 

His former Rockies teammates did.

The team has been keeping up with LeMahieu's amazing inaugural season with the pinstripes, and it doesn't surprise them that the super utility infielder is producing the way he has.

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.

CLEVELAND -- Zack Wheeler has become a pitcher in high demand, and the Mets have now begun trade talks, according to major league sources. Among the teams who have been in contact are the Yankees and Red Sox, both of whom are interested in Wheeler.

The Braves and Cubs are two other possibilities for Wheeler. According to one source, there is significant interest in Wheeler. A trade is not believed to be close with any one suitor, but the Mets have shifted into a more aggressive sell mode.

Jason Vargas and Todd Frazier are also available. Noah Syndergaard isn't a total lock to stay, but it is far more likely that the Mets explore trading him again this winter, per sources.

Yankees pitching prospect Deivi Garcia is climbing the minor league ranks and the minor league rankings.

A day after the franchise announced his promotion to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Garcia landed on Baseball Prospectus' midseason top 50 prospect list, coming in at No. 25.

The 20-year-old Garcia, who started the MLB Futures Game on Sunday and recorded a strikeout, is 4-5 with a 3.01 ERA in 14 minor-league starts this year with 114 strikeouts in 68 2/3 innings with High-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton.

CC honored at All-Star Game 00:01:16
CC Sabathia was invited back to Cleveland to get honored for his career, and talks to SNY about the success of the Yankees this season.

On April 8, 2001, a 20-year-old CC Sabathia made his Major League debut at the then-named Jacobs Field. As he got into Cleveland for the All-Star Game festivities on Monday, he admitted that moment and others crossed his mind. 

It's hard not to reminisce if you're Sabathia, especially considering why he's back where it all started in the first place. The MLB decided it was right to honor Sabathia, who is in his final MLB season, and he couldn't be anymore grateful.

"This is an incredible experience," Sabathia told reporters. "When Alex [Cora] called me and just had me considered to be able to come here, I was just honored. I never thought about myself in this light, I guess, and to have the MLB want to recognize me and bring me here to the All-Star Game is incredible and awesome for my family. We're all excited to be back where it all started.

Every Monday, we'll be taking a look at how the Yankees' top prospects (their MLB.com Yankees Top-30 rankings are in parenthesis) are faring.


Estevan Florial, OF, High-A Tampa (No. 1, MLB No. 47) -- ETA 2021

Florial had a modestly better week than he had turned in of late, going 5-for-22 in his last five games, which including his second home run of the season. Florial has struck out 30 times among his 81 at-bats.

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.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman & Co. are on the hunt for a starting pitcher to add at the trade deadline, though things have been mum lately on that end. 

But that doesn't mean the pinstripes aren't working behind the scenes. 

According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, Yankees VP of baseball operations in Tim Naehring was seen in Cincinnati on Sunday to watch Indians hurler Trevor Bauer start against the Reds. SNY's Andy Martino added on to Rosenthal's reporting, saying "Trevor Bauer definitely one to watch for Yankees."
