Put the Champagne back on ice. The Yankees could clinch their first division title in seven years this week and they have their ace, Luis Severino, making his season debut Tuesday night. The Bombers may even get one of their top sluggers back from the injured list, as Giancarlo Stanton is expected...

The regular season ends in two weeks, and there’s light at the end of the tunnel. For one thing, several Yankees who missed all or most of the season with injuries have returned or will return soon. If there was ever a time for Luis Severino and Dellin Betances to get healthy, right before October is definitely it. Giancarlo Stanton is another player expected to return shortly. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt: What is the best-case...

New York Yankees: Is Luis Severino the missing piece?

Yankees former ace Luis Severino will be returning on Tuesday to start vs the Angels but is he the final piece of the puzzle to a World Series?

Yankees Injury Update: Sanchez, Encarnacion, Happ leave Detroit with injuries

Photo by Leon Halip/ The Yankees had another unreal day in terms of injuries. For the past couple weeks, the Yankees’ injury news mostly seemed to be coming back positive. Giancarlo Stanton has ramped up baseball activities. Dellin Betances and Luis Severino each have made multiple rehab appearances, with the latter apparently ready to join the big club. Jordan Montgomery has completed his recovery from Tommy John surgery, and could pitch in the majors this weekend for the first time since May 2018. Hopefully, you didn’t get too used to the bright outlook. Today’s doubleheader...

Giancarlo Stanton will make the Yankees so much better

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports The slugger’s importance in the team is often overlooked Statcast certainly loves Giancarlo Stanton. Since the ball-tracking technology came to prominence in 2015, the outfielder has been considered a true Statcast darling, hitting tape-measure home runs with alarmingly high exit velocities. After missing the majority of the season up to this point with an assortment of injuries, he is expected to return to the Yankees’ lineup at the perfect time. Stanton’s arrival will be help offset the long-term losses of fellow outfielders Mike Tauchman and Aaron...

Giancarlo Stanton and the Yankees need each other now

DETROIT — Giancarlo Stanton could rewrite the narrative on his start with the Yankees. Despite hitting 38 homers, driving in 100 RBIs and playing in 152 games last season, Stanton’s first season in pinstripes was more likely remembered for him coming up short in October. But now, with the injury...

Mike Tauchman’s baseball luck has swung in the other direction

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports After a month of finding every possible hole in the outfield, the baseball gods have been stricter with Tauchman’s balls in play of late. What a season it’s been for Mike Tauchman. With extended injuries to Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Aaron Hicks, the Yankees’ seemingly minor preseason acquisition has paid immediate dividends. The outfielder has posted a 122 wRC+, played solid defense, and helped the Yanks sit atop the AL East for most of the season. The question surrounding Tauchman, and many other out-of-nowhere players for the Bombers, is if...

The Yankees once again have a top prospect in their bullpen

Photo by Harry How/ Jonathan Loaisiga may be the Yankees’ next great reliever Soon enough, the Yankees will welcome back a veritable All-Star team from the injured list. The returns of Luis Severino, Dellin Betances, and Giancarlo Stanton will capture the headlines, and rightfully so. One return, however, seems to have gone overlooked. Jonathan Loaisiga, who currently ranks as the Yankees’ sixth-best prospect by MLB Pipeline, rejoined the team on August 13. Understandably, Loaisiga isn’t as seasoned as the other returning players mentioned, and he did get reassigned into the...
