    • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Sits in Game 1
      By RotoWire Staff

      Morales is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Royals, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. He is hitting .174 with one home run in 27 plate appearances for the Yankees. Clint Frazier gets the start at designated hitter, batting fifth. Look for Morales to get back into the mix in the nightcap with righty Jorge Lopez starting for the Royals.

    • Morales is out of Saturday's lineup against the Rays. He is 2-for-6 with a home run, two walks and one strikeout in his first two games as a Yankee. Gary Sanchez will start at designated hitter while Austin Romine gets the start behind the dish.

    • Morales is starting at DH and hitting fifth in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Morales is set to make his Yankees debut after being acquired by New York earlier in the week. With the amount of injuries the Yankees are currently dealing with, Morales could be in line for semi-regular opportunities in the short term. Prior to be acquired by New York, Morales hit .204/.310/.259 with one homer in 34 games with the A's.

    • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Acquired by Yankees
      By RotoWire Staff

      Morales was acquired by the Yankees from the Athletics on Tuesday. Morales was designated for assignment by Oakland on Monday, and he'll now head to the Yankees in exchange for cash considerations and either a player to be named later or more cash considerations. The 35-year-old veteran had been scuffling at the dish for Oakland, with a .204/.310/.259 slash line and just one homer over 108 at-bats and figures to take on a depth role for New York. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees shifted Jonathan Loaisiga to the 60-day injured list.

    • Manager Bob Melvin told MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Monday that the Athletics have designated Morales for assignment. The writing was on the wall for Morales' removal from the 40-man roster after Khris Davis (hip) made his return to the lineup Sunday against the Indians after a multi-game absence. With Davis and Matt Olson both back to full health and set to occupy the designated-hitter and first-base spots, respectively, on an everyday basis, the Athletics didn't have much use for Morales in a bench role. Oakland will now have up to 10 days to try trading Morales, who will likely hit the free-agent pool rather than accept a minor-league assignment if the A's can't find a suitor for his services.
