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.
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.
