CC Sabathia, #52

News
Sabathia (2-1) got hammered for seven runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out six over 5,2 innings but escaped with a no-decision in Friday's 14-11 extra-inning win over the Orioles.

The veteran lefty's ERA has almost tripled over his last two starts as the inevitable correction in his stat line occurred. Sabathia's 4.34 ERA and 1.34 WHIP are still useful in deeper AL-only formats, but in shallower leagues there's little reason to continue rostering him. He'll next take the mound Wednesday at home against the Blue Jays.

Castro went 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 14-11 extra-inning win over the Orioles.

His two-run shot off Brad Brach in the ninth inning, Castro's fifth homer of the season, sent the game into extras. The second baseman's blistering start to 2017 continues, and he's now slashing .361/.398/.578 with 16 RBI and 12 runs scored in 21 games.

News
Romine went 2-for-3 with a homer and five RBI Saturday against the Orioles.

Romine cranked out a solo shot in the sixth inning to extend the Yankees lead in an easy victory. He's been an outstanding replacement for fantasy owners who picked him up while Gary Sanchez (biceps) misses time, as he's hit safely in 10 of his last 15 games while blasting a pair of homers.

News
Judge went 2-for-2 with a two-run homer, two walks and four runs in Saturday's victory over the Orioles.

Judge crushed his 10th homer of the season added an exclamation mark in the seventh inning of a lopsided Yankees victory. He's stayed hot for nearly an entire month, and it'd be nearly impossible to find a player in the American League who's crushed his draft value to this extent this young season. Although a slump is likely to occur at some point, he should be given an extremely long leash from fantasy owners when he starts to slow down a bit.

News
Pineda (3-1) allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out eight over 5.1 innings to earn the win Saturday against the Orioles.

Pineda fired five innings of shutout ball before getting into a bit of a jam in the sixth frame, but after throwing 100 pitches, he was removed from the contest. He's now held opponents to two or fewer runs in three of his last four outings while posting at least six strikeouts in every one of his 2017 appearances, and he's emerging as a strong fantasy option. He'll make his next start Friday against the Cubs.

News
Sanchez (biceps) could return in time for next weekend's series against the Cubs, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

He threw to the bases Saturday in full catching gear and will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. It would be a little risky to deploy him next week in hopes of cashing in on a couple starts in that series at Wrigley Field, but it sounds like he could return against the reigning World Series champs.

Gregorius is starting at shortstop and batting sixth Friday against the Orioles.

Gregorius will slot right back into the starting lineup after being activated from the disabled list earlier Friday. He'll continue to serve as the Yankees' everyday shortstop moving forward.

News
Torreyes will likely see a significant decline of playing time when Didi Gregorius (shoulder) returns from the disabled list Friday against the Orioles.

Torreyes had assumed the starting shortstop role while Gregorius was on the DL. But now that he is coming back, as the Bergen Record's Pete Caldera reports, it is almost certain the 24-year-old will return to a bench role, which he was slated to fulfill before Gregorius suffered an injury during the World Baseball Classic. Through 62 at-bats this season, Torreyes has impressed, as he's hit .290 with 13 RBI and one home run.

News
Holliday went 3-for-5 with a walk, a double, three runs scored and a three-run home run in the 10th inning to give the Yankees a 14-11 win over the Orioles on Friday.

The walkoff shot was Holliday's third homer of the season. The 37-year-old is now slashing .263/.411/.474 through 19 games with 13 RBI, and his .885 OPS would be his highest mark since 2011 if he can keep up the pace.

News
Gardner went 2-for-4 with two homers and four RBI Saturday against the Orioles.

Gardner blasted a pair of homers off Ubaldo Jimenez in the first two innings to help the Yankees jump out to a five-run lead on their way to an easy victory. Despite the big game, he came into this contest posting just three extra-base hits without a single RBI in 64 at-bats this month, and until he can show some consistent signs of heating up, his ability to steal a few bases is about the only reason he should be in fantasy lineups.

Luis Severino, #40

News
Severino (2-1) scattered three hits and two walks while striking out six over seven scoreless innings in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Red Sox.

It's the first time this season Severino has avoided serving up a homer in a start, but the two walks actually doubled his total on the year and he now has an eye-popping 33:4 K:BB through 27 innings. He'll look to stay locked in Monday at home against the Blue Jays.

News
Tanaka (3-1) pitched a complete game shutout Friday, allowing just three hits with three strikeouts and no walks in a win over the Red Sox.

Tanaka was extremely economical in this one, as he needed just 97 pitches (72 strikes) to go the distance and outduel Boston ace Chris Sale. His ERA is still inflated at 4.20 after a rocky first few outings, but the 28-year-old has turned it around with a pair of gems his last two times out and has yielded just one run in his last 16 innings. He'll look to keep the hot streak going next time out in a home date against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Bird is not in the lineup Thursday against the Red Sox, Erik Boland of Newsday Sports reports.

After going 1-for-3 with a walk and one RBI Wednesday, Bird will head to the bench as the Red Sox deploy lefty-throwing Chris Sale. Chris Carter will take over at first for the game, though Bird should be back on the lineup card for the series opener against the Orioles on Friday.

News
Betances pitched a perfect inning while striking out two and notching his fourth hold of the season in Wednesday's win over the Red Sox.

After taking the blown save and a loss in his second appearance of the season, Betances has been as good as advertising yet again. The 29-year-old has given up just one run over seven innings, striking out 11 batters in that span for a 14.1 K/9. He'll continue to be a strong source of strikeouts and holds, but he likely won't factor into many decisions.

Ellsbury went 1-for-5 with two runs scored and five RBI in Friday's 14-11 extra-inning win over the Orioles.

The big blow was a seventh-inning grand slam off former Yankee teammate Vidal Nuno, Ellsbury's third homer of the season. The 33-year-old is now slashing .295/.345/.436 through 21 games and is already 6-for-7 in stolen base attempts.

Chapman, who was seen grabbing his elbow after the final pitch in Wednesday's win over the Red Sox, said he felt fine, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports.

Chapman and manager Joe Girardi both dismissed the notion that something was wrong with the 29-year-old's elbow after the game. There was a noticeable dip in Chapman's velocity during his season-high 33-pitch outing -- only cracking 100 mph once after averaging 100 mph through his first seven appearances -- though he did clock in at 98 mph on the final pitch of the game. "I feel fine," Chapman said. "Thank God I feel fine." It doesn't appear to be anything overly serious, but it will definitely be something to monitor in the coming days.
