    • General manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday that Sheffield will pitch in some capacity for the Yankees this year, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports. Though Cashman left it open as to whether Sheffield will get an opportunity in the rotation or if he'll serve out of the bullpen, he confidently stated that the southpaw will get a taste of the big leagues in 2018. Look for him to join the club when rosters expand in September. Across 15 appearances (14 starts) with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this year, Sheffield has logged a 2.16 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 8.5 K/9.

    • Sheffield has a 1.71 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 51:18 K:BB in 52.2 innings over his last 10 starts for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He has really turned things on of late, and currently has a streak of six straight starts where he has allowed one run or less. Sheffield still walks a few too many batters, but opposing hitters are hitting just .191 against him this year and he has given up three home runs in 102 innings, which has allowed him to prevent runs at an excellent clip. Had his schedule lined up, Sheffield may have received a callup over Chance Adams for the spot start Aug. 4, but things did not align on that occasion. Lance Lynn has pitched well lately, so there isn't an immediate opening in the big-league rotation. It's possible Sheffield could join the big club in September to work as a multi-inning reliever, but that would require adding him to the 40-man roster.

      Sheffield (shoulder) was taken off the disabled list ahead of Wednesday's start against Triple-A Pawtucket, DJ Eberle of the Times Leader News reports. This move was expected, as Sheffield has returned to health after dealing with a minor shoulder issue. He'll take the hill Wednesday for his third Triple-A start of the 2018 season.

    • Yankees' Justus Sheffield: Will pitch Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sheffield (shoulder) will take the hill against Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, DJ Eberle of the Times Leader reports. Sheffield was placed on the minor-league DL this past weekend due to shoulder tightness. As expected, this minor issue won't sideline Sheffield for longer than one start as he's set to face Pawtucket for the second time this month. Over seven appearances this season, Sheffield has logged a 2.38 ERA and 1.18 WHIP.

    • Sheffield (shoulder) was placed on the 7-day disabled list Saturday, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports. Sheffield was removed from Friday's start with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the middle of the third inning due to shoulder tightness. Though it's a positive sign that he didn't require any further testing following the game, this is still a situation to monitor moving forward, as is the case with any arm issue for a pitcher. Expect an update on his status in the coming days.
