Yankees Highlights: DJ LeMahieu tries and fails to carry team on his back

Yankees Highlights: DJ LeMahieu tries and fails to carry team on his back

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ It took the bats too long to wake up today. The Yankees were forced to settle for a series split with the Indians today. Their pitching did them no favors, and it took too long for the bats to wake up. They attempted to rally in the ninth, but came up just short. We’ll have a full recap up later. Here are the highlights: Winner of the Game The offense wasn’t able to get much going over the first six innings, but DJ LeMahieu finally put the Bombers on the board with a two-run homer in the seventh. He also knocked in another run in the ninth, and was responsible...

Yankees record 15 hits in 8-3 win over Orioles

Yankees record 15 hits in 8-3 win over Orioles

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees struck early and often as they picked up another win over Baltimore. This game did not play out how you might expect. Actually, it played out exactly how you might expect in one sense. The Yankees never trailed, scored a bunch of runs and were never in any real danger. That said, it was a different sort of easy win than we’ve seen in other Orioles games. Home runs have done the most damage for the Yankees in their 15 other wins against Baltimore this season. This game proved different in that the Yankees only hit one of them. DJ LeMahieu went...

The challenge of getting returning Yankees back in game shape

Photo by Michael Owens/ It’s going to be tough to balance playing time for the returning stars and the excellent replacements We’ve spent so much of this season talking about how the Yankees are going to cover for all the injuries they’ve suffered. It’s safe to say we’ve all been thrilled with the way a previous bunch of nobodies has played while covering for guys like Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Giancarlo Stanton and Miguel Andujar. The depth signing, DJ LeMahieu, has been the team’s best player all season, and the scrap heap pickups like Gio Urshela, Cameron Maybin and Mike...

Saturday open thread

Saturday open thread

Photo by Mark Blinch/ Get your weekend open thread here. The Yankees couldn’t quite get their winning streak to ten games, falling for the first time in August last night in a frustrating contest in Toronto. No matter, they dominated thus far this month even without the services of their primary August dominator, Gary Sanchez. They’ll look to start another winning streak today at 3:05 ET. Fun Questions Suppose DJ LeMahieu has been the team’s MVP so far. Who would you put second on the Yankees’ MVP list? Gio Urshela? Gleyber Torres? Mike Tauchman?! Go-to karaoke song?

Yankees’ offense continues dominant run with 12-6 victory over Blue Jays

Yankees’ offense continues dominant run with 12-6 victory over Blue Jays

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports No matter who you put in this lineup lately, there are no easy outs There was a new opponent, a new pitching staff to face, but the result was the same. The Yankees’ bats continued to stay red hot, and the winning streak is now at a season-high nine games. Things unraveled quickly for the Toronto Blue Jays, who sent Thomas Pannone out to attempt to put out the Bombers bats. DJ LeMahieu greeted him with a double, and Gio Urshela followed up with a two-run blast to left-center to get the Yankees on the board immediately. Pannone got around the lineup in...

NYY News: Come Mr DJ, song Pon de Replay

Photo by Elsa/ DJ LeMahieu’s impressive season bucks MLB trends; Betances behind Severino in recovery; Cashman More like Scavangeman; Yankees-Red Sox still the golden goose Bleacher Report | Joe Lemire: It’s hard to argue that DJ LeMahieu hasn’t been the Yankees’ MVP this season, but he’s gone about it in a way that runs against the guys who would otherwise be in that conversation. He hits the ball hard, but makes more contact than Yankee stalwarts like Aaron Judge and company. That contact ability has paid off in spades, and it’s been awful fun to watch, New York Post |...

Yankees’ depth shines in 9-4 win over Orioles

Photo by Mark Goldman/Icon Sportswire via Big games from Austin Romine, Mike Tauchman and the bullpen led the Yankees to victory. The days of the B-Team Bombers were supposed to be long over, but the Yankees’ “next men up” did most of the grunt work in a gritty 9-4 win over the Orioles. It was the Yankees’ ninth win at Camden Yards this year. The Yankees lit up the scoreboard in the top of the third inning. Mike Tauchman, who came into the day hitting .443 with an .820 SLG since July 5, smoked a solo shot to kick off the scoring. Then, his former Rockies teammate DJ LeMahieu...

Yankees news: No plans to call up Clint Frazier anytime soon

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports Yankees don’t plan to call up Clint Frazier anytime soon; DJ LeMahieu to man first base while everyone is injured; Aaron Hicks avoided worst-case scenario injury; Brian Cashman talks real reason trade with Mets didn’t happen New York Post | Howie Kussoy: Don’t plan on seeing Clint Frazier in the Bronx anytime soon. When asked if the Yankees had considered calling him up after the recent injuries, Aaron Boone said “no.” The manager went on to say that it is not true that he has fallen out of favor with the Yankees, however, and that if the right spot...

Yankees Highlights: Bombers bury Red Sox on Gleyber Day

Photo by Elsa/ It’s a doubleheader sweep! Aside from the injury to Edwin Encarnacion, it was a good Yankees baseball day! It doesn’t get much better than sweeping a doubleheader against Boston. A full recap will follow shortly. Here are the highlights: Winner(s) of the Game In the first game of the doubleheader, DJ LeMahieu hit two home runs. Not to be outdone, Yankees shortstop Gleyber Torres launched two dingers of his own tonight. He almost had a third one too! He had to settle for a leadoff double off the top of the right field wall instead, missing a home run in the seventh by...

NYY vs. BOS: Chad Green vs. Brian Jonhson

Photo by Mike Stobe/ The rivalry continues for the second time today. So far so good, as the Yankees have now taken back the two games they gave up over their last series against the Boston Red Sox. Chad Green will be tasked with continuing the trend of strong performances by the rotation, even though he is the opener. Green has not opened a games since July 18th, but hopefully he keeps his first-inning magic rolling. DJ LeMahieu has looked amazing since his return, hitting two homes runs off ace Chris Sale in game one. Brett Gardner and his three hits are promising as well. Edwin...

DJ LeMahieu, Domingo German lead Yankees to victory over Red Sox

DJ LeMahieu, Domingo German lead Yankees to victory over Red Sox

Photo by Elsa/ Two home runs from LeMahieu and a quality start from German paced the Yankees in a comfortable win. After a relatively low-scoring 4-2 win on Friday night, Saturday’s Yankees-Red Sox game went a little bit more like how last week’s Yankees-Red Sox series went. One team came out and scored runs early while pitching effectively, winning an easy game. This time, the Yankees flipped the script from last week’s results, pounding out 14 hits in a 9-2 victory over the Red Sox. Both teams traded home runs early. DJ LeMahieu led off the bottom of the first with a long...

Yankees Highlights: DJ LeMahieu tees off against Chris Sale

Photo by Elsa/ The offense was firing on all cylinders during the first game of this doubleheader. We’re halfway through this four-game set against the Red Sox, and so far the series is going much better than last weekend’s. The Yankees easily took the first game of today’s doubleheader, giving them a 2-0 lead in the series. We’ll have a full recap up shortly, but here are the highlights in the meantime. Winner of the Game It was a heck of a game for DJ LeMahieu. The infielder got the Yankees on the board early with a solo shot off Chris Sale in the first inning. The Bombers...

NYY: What’s the deal, Cashman?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Cashman may have to break from “discipline” for starter; Robbie Ray in house and in sights at the deadline; DJ LeMahieu nearing return; Ruocco’s run nearing end for now NY Post | Joel Sherman: Trade deadline day has arrived. So far, the Yankees have remained in the “listening but not engaging” party when it comes to improving on their main weakness, starting pitching. That may soon change, and if it does, it may be because Brian Cashman ends up adjusting the philosophy he’s employed to this point. The Yankees have been clearly focused with...
