NJ.com | Randy Miller: It’s no secret that most Yankees fans were less than thrilled by the DJ LeMahieu signing over the offseason. He quickly proved us all wrong by being one of the best players on the team. The versatile infielder is only signed through the 2020 season, but revealed that he’d love to stay in New York and is definitely open to a contract...

The Yankees have witnessed Gleyber Torres’ rise to stardom

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports The infielder has improved across the board and the arrow keeps pointing up. The Aroldis Chapman trade has the potential to be one of those rare transactions that radically changes both of the franchises involved for the better. Back in that 2016 season, where the Yankees boldly decided to sell a couple of assets to real contenders, they flipped the hard-throwing reliever to the Cubs in exchange for prospects. The headliner of the deal, for the Yankees, was Venezuelan infielder Gleyber Torres. Flags fly forever, they say, so no matter how significant were...

Red Sox dismiss GM Dave Dombrowski after Yankees beat them 10-5

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ The Yankees’ rivals are now 17.5 back in the division with 19 games left to play. Gleyber Torres stole the show on Sunday night, going 3-for-5 with a home run and 4 RBI as the New York Yankees powered past the Boston Red Sox, 10-5. The Yankees got to the Red Sox’ pitching staff early and often last night. Following an Edwin Encarnacion single in the second, Gleyber Torres mashed his 35th home run of the year, drilling the ball over the Green Monster in left-center field. In the following inning, a ground-rule double by Mike Tauchman began a rally...

Aaron Judges, Gleyber Torres carry Yankees to 4-1 win over the Rangers

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The opener was back, and it worked much better this time. The last time the Yankees used an opener, it didn’t go well. Back on August 15th, Chad Green got the start, but he wouldn’t even last an inning in that role. The right-hander gave up five runs across the six batters he faced as part of that 19-5 loss to the Indians. After CC Sabathia’s return, the Yankees didn’t need to use an opener. With the veteran southpaw back on the IL, however, the Bombers tasked Green with giving it another go. This time, it couldn’t have gone more smoothly. Green and the...

Aaron Judge’s power is extremely back

The Yankees sat three regulars, and didn’t use a starting pitcher Wednesday night against the Rangers. That didn’t matter, as they beat Texas 4-1 behind homers from Gleyber Torres and Aaron Judge. Judge’s love for the short right-field porch at Yankee Stadium continued, as he hit a two-run shot...

Mike Ford and Yankees bullpen down the Mariners, 5-4

Photo by Lindsey Wasson/ Ford had a career game on Monday night. Matt Wisler started this game for the Mariner with a 1-2-3 inning in the first, but once Tommy Milone took to mound in the second, the Yankees got their A-swings on. Gleyber Torres wasted no time starting the the scoring by hitting a home run with an exit velocity of 108.5 mph, traveling 438 feet to center field. After the home run, Mike Tauchman drew a walk and then advanced to second on a groundball by Gio Urshela. Austin Romine quickly singled up the middle to give the Yankees their second run of the game.

New York Yankees news: Controversy in Los Angeles

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees should protest game two; Aaron Boone has his shortstop’s back; Sabathia feeling good after last outing CBS Sports | Mike Axisa Game two of the Yankees and Dodgers series ended with some controversy on Saturday. The Yankees and Gleyber Torres were stripped of the game-tying run when the umpire called time as Torres ran home due to an on-field injury scare at second base. It doesn’t look like the Yankees will formally protest this one, yet Aaron Boone was quoted saying “We’ll certainly inquire with everyone and try to get a good...

Didi Gregorius exits Yankees-Dodgers game with shoulder injury

Didi Gregorius exits Yankees-Dodgers game with shoulder injury

Photo by Victor Decolongon/ The Yankees shortstop is the latest to go down with an injury. Add another name to the Yankees’ ever-growing list of injuries. Didi Gregorius was hit by a pitch from Clayton Kershaw in the first inning of tonight’s series finale between the Yankees and Dodgers. At first, Gregorius remained in the game, but was removed in lieu of pinch-hitter Mike Ford in the bottom of the third. Erik Boland of Newsday reports via Twitter that Gregorius suffered a right shoulder contusion. He will reportedly receive x-rays later tonight. Gleyber Torres shifted over to...

Yankees stage comeback attempt, fall to Dodgers 2-1

Photo by John Cordes/Icon Sportswire via The Dodgers’ pitching kept the Yankees in check Things started off well for CC Sabathia the first time through the order, striking out four and allowing just two hits. Unfortunately for Sabathia, the second hit came against pitcher Tony Gonsolin, an infield single off the veteran pitcher’s leg. Two batters later Justin Turner put an inside cutter over the left-field wall to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead. Things almost got worse after a lined shot from Cody Bellinger went right through the glove of Gleyber Torres, putting Will Smith on third....

Yankees Highlights: Late rally comes up empty as Dodgers narrowly escape

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports The offense lay dormant almost all game, but couldn’t quite cash in when they needed to. Last night’s satisfying victory was followed up by an equally frustrating loss. After pounding the Dodgers pitching yesterday, the Yankee offense fell almost entirely dormant. Their only rally consisted of a series of fortunate groundballs in the ninth inning against Kenley Jensen. Less fortunately, an oddly-timed timeout call prevented Gleyber Torres from scoring the tying run in a bizarre sequence, and the Yankees were left with a 2-1 loss. Winner of the...
