  • Yankees' JT Brubaker: Shut down for several weeks

    Brubaker (oblique/elbow) will remain shut down from throwing for 3-to-4 weeks, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    The Yankees pulled Brubaker off his rehab assignment Sunday after suffering an oblique strain during his latest minor-league start, and the team confirmed Saturday that it will likely be nearly a month before he restarts his throwing program. He remains without a clear timeline for his return, though a better picture may emerge once he's cleared to throw again.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Collects three RBI in win

    Volpe went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Friday's 6-1 win versus Tampa Bay.

    The New York shortstop cracked a bases-clearing double in the third inning to extend the Yankees' lead to 4-0. This performance marks Volpe's third three-RBI game of the season. Perhaps this game's success will spur the 23-year-old on to a better second half, as he entered the evening hitting a miserable .143 (12-for-84) with eight runs scored and five RBI over his previous 20 games.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Knocks four base hits

    Soto went 4-for-4 with two doubles, three runs scored and a walk in Friday's victory over the Rays.

    The Yankees superstar was the offensive catalyst in the team's 6-1 win over Tampa Bay, reaching base in all five of his plate appearances. With this performance, Soto collected his second four-hit game in New York; the other happened against the White Sox on May 18. The free-agent-to-be is now slashing .303/.433/.569 with 23 homers, 78 runs scored and 66 RBI across 432 plate appearances this season.

  • Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Secures third win

    Cole (3-1) earned the win Friday against Tampa Bay, allowing one run on six hits and one walk over six innings. He struck out eight.

    The New York ace was in fine form, generating an impressive 16 whiffs en route to his eight punchouts, his third straight game with at least seven Ks. The lone blemish on his evening was 384-foot solo shot allowed to Brandon Lowe in the sixth. With this 103-pitch effort, Cole lowered his season ERA to 4.60 from 5.40. The 33-year-old is tentatively slated to make his next start against the Mets at home.

  • Yankees' Jose Trevino: Ahead of schedule

    Trevino (quadriceps) did some running and played catch Thursday, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    Trevino sustained a Grade 2 strain in his left hamstring July 12, but he has been progressing well since. He played catch with manager Aaron Boone on Thursday and has been able to do some light running. Still, Trevino isn't expected to be in action any time soon. Austin Wells should continue to handle most of the Yankees' catching duties.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Getting PRP injection after setback

    Berti will be given a PRP injection after suffering a setback with his left calf strain, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone deemed it a "minor" setback, but Berti won't be ready for rehab games this weekend as originally planned. It will also push back his timetable for a return, although that remains fluid. Berti has been shelved since late May.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Throwing bullpen Saturday

    Schmidt (lat) is expected to throw around 20 pitches off a mound Saturday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Schmidt hasn't thrown off a mound since being placed on the injured list May 30, making Saturday's session a significant step in his recovery from a strained right lat. The 28-year-old will likely need to complete a few more bullpen sessions before being sent out on a rehab assignment. He seems to still be a few weeks away from activation, and with Gerrit Cole back, there may not be a spot in the Yankees' rotation available for Schmidt once he's healthy.

  • Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Running bases Friday

    Stanton (hamstring) ran the bases at Yankee Stadium before Friday's game, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    It would appear to be the first time he has run the bases since going down with a left hamstring strain nearly a month ago. Stanton did not look to be running at 100 percent, but it's nonetheless a big step and signifies that a return to game action could be close. The Yankees have not yet indicated whether Stanton will require a rehab assignment before being activated.

  • Yankees' J.D. Davis: Back from injured list

    The Yankees activated Davis (illness) from the 10-day injured list Friday.

    Davis had battled a stomach bug prior to the All-Star break but is feeling well enough to suit up for the start of the second half. Ben Rice has been great against righties (.887 OPS) but hasn't done much versus lefties (.593 OPS), so the 31-year-old Davis will provide the Yankees with another option at first base against left-handed pitching.

  • Yankees' Thomas Pannone: Joins Bronx Bombers

    Pannone signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Friday, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    The left-hander spent the first half of the season on a minor-league deal with the Cubs but was released earlier this week. Pannone posted an unremarkable 4.37 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 87:32 K:BB over 19 starts for Triple-A Iowa, and he'll now report to the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

  • Yankees' George Lombard: Finding groove at Single-A

    Lombard is slashing .271/.364/.500 with four home runs and 11 steals over his last 25 games for Single-A Tampa.

    He hit .225 with zero home runs over his first 46 games this season and was a bit too passive, but something has clicked of late for the toolsy shortstop. Lombard, the Yankees' first-round pick in 2023, is a plus runner and excellent overall athlete, so if he can continue to get to his above-average raw power in games, he should keep climbing up prospect rankings.

  • Yankees' Ben Rice: Clubs clutch homer Sunday

    Rice went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday.

    Rice was hitless through four at-bats but came through when it mattered most, swatting a three-run homer in the ninth inning off Baltimore closer Craig Kimbrel to give New York a 5-3 lead. That result didn't hold, as the Orioles plated three runs in the bottom of the frame to pull out the victory, but Rice's heroics still stand out. While the rookie is batting just .228 on the campaign, he's shown a flair for the big moment, batting .280 with runners in scoring position and already adding a three-homer game to his big-league resume.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Let down by defense in blown save

    Holmes (1-4) blew a save and was the pitcher of record in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Orioles, allowing three unearned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out one batter over two-thirds of an inning.

    In a roller-coaster ninth inning, New York scored three runs in the top of the frame to take a 5-3 lead. Holmes entered to try to close things out in the bottom of the inning but couldn't get the job done, giving up three runs, the final two of which came on a Cedric Mullins walk-off double. Though he didn't pitch particularly well, it would be unfair to pin the blame entirely on Holmes for the dramatic defeat, as a two-out error by Anthony Volpe allowed a run to score and kept the frame alive for Mullins' double, which had an xBA of .150, per Statcast -- Alex Verdugo took a terrible route to the ball and pinned the blame on himself for the result after the game, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. It was nonetheless a poor end to the first half of the campaign for Holmes, who has blown two of his past four save chances while giving up five runs (two earned) across four frames during that span.

  • Yankees' Greysen Carter: Goes to Yankees in Round 5

    The Yankees have selected Carter with the 152nd overall pick in the 2024 First-Year Player Draft.

    The 6-foot-4, 237-pound Carter is an imposing presence on the mound and fits the mold of a power pitcher, as he sported a fastball that typically sat around 96 to 99 miles per hour this spring and maxed out at 103. However, Carter struggled to maintain his mechanics and command his fastball consistently, and his other offerings didn't play up well enough for him to yield quality results as a starter during his collegiate career at Vanderbilt. He'll likely make the full-time move to the bullpen as he begins his professional career.
