  • Kendrys Morales: Announces retirement

    Morales announced his retirement from baseball Friday, Marly Rivera of ESPN reports.

    Morales calls it quits after failing to stick with the Athletics or Yankees last season. The 36-year-old spent parts of 13 seasons in the big leagues, appearing for the aforementioned teams in addition to the Angels, Mariners, Twins, Royals and Blue Jays. He'll finish with 213 homers, 740 RBI, 1,289 hits and a .265/.327/.453 slash line. He won a World Series with the Royals in 2015.

  • Kendrys Morales: Released by Yanks

    Morales was officially released by the Yankees on Tuesday.

    Morales returned from the injured list last week and was immediately designated for assignment, and now his time as a Yankee officially comes to an end. The veteran slugger's move from Oakland in May did nothing to improve his numbers as he slashed .177/.320/.242 over 19 games with New York.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Healthy but cast off roster

    Morales (calf) was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and promptly designated for assignment.

    Morales did very little during his time in New York, hitting .177/.320/.242 over 19 games. Anything he could have done for the Yankees can be done much better by Edwin Encarnacion, whom the team acquired while Morales was out injured. Whether or not Morales can find another big-league job remains to be seen.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Making progress

    Morales (calf) fielded grounders Wednesday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Morales, who resumed hitting earlier in the week, continues to make steady progress in his return from a strained left calf. While the veteran slugger isn't expected to remain sidelined for much longer, he'll likely be designated for assignment once healthy following the Yankees' acquisition of Edwin Encarnacion, per Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Lands on IL

    Morales was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left calf strain.

    The severity of the injury is not yet known, but Morales will be out of commission until at least June 22 following this move. With Aaron Judge (oblique) and Giancarlo Stanton (shoulder) somewhat close to returning from injuries of their own, Morales may not have a role to which he'd return. Nestor Cortes was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take his place on the roster.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Brief IL stint expected

    Morales (calf) is not expected to spend significantly more than 10 days on the injured list, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

    Morales landed on the injured list Thursday with a left calf strain, but it doesn't sound like his stay on the shelf will be an extended one. The veteran slugger is eligible to return June 22; Giancarlo Stanton (shoulder) may be back before then, however, which would push Morales to a bench role upon his return.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Collects three hits

    Morales went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Yankees defeated the Mets 12-5 in the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday.

    Serving as the first baseman, Morales had just his second multi-hit day since being acquired by the Yankees on May 14. He had been only 8-for-57 with New York coming into Tuesday's game, and even with the big day, still has just a .194 batting average for the season.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Sits for Game 2

    Morales is not in the lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.

    Morales sits despite going 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in the first game of the day. Gary Sanchez will serve as the designated hitter in his absence.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Sitting again Monday

    Morales is not starting Monday against the Mets.

    Morales sits for the second straight game, with Clint Frazier again serving as the designated hitter. Didi Gregorius' return from Tommy John surgery has crowded the Yankees' roster, and Morales could be the one to lose out the most. It's hard to argue that he deserves more playing time, as he owns a .182/.306/.236 slash line in 2019 with just two home runs.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Bound for bench

    Morales is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

    Clint Frazier will step in as the Yankees' designated hitter after Morales started each of the previous four games. Though he continues to receive fairly steady action, Morales has yet to get going at the dish since being acquired from the Athletics on May 14. Through his first 70 plate appearances with the Yankees, Morales has slashed .140/.300/.193.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Sitting again Tuesday

    Morales isn't in Tuesday's starting lineup against the Blue Jays, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

    Morales also took a seat for Sunday's series finale, so this is already his second day off in June. Clint Frazier will slot in as the designated hitter and bat sixth with Morales on the bench.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Benched in series finale

    Morales is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    The Yankees wanted to give backstop Gary Sanchez a night off behind the dish while still keeping his bat in the lineup, so he'll serve as the team's designated hitter while Morales heads to the bench. New York has a slew of high-profile hitters currently rehabbing from injuries, with Didi Gregorius (elbow) likely the closest of the lot to returning. Once Gregorius is back from the IL, Morales could be the player most at risk of losing out on everyday at-bats.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Not in lineup

    Morales is not starting Monday against the Padres.

    Morales has hit just .196/.313/.261 in 42 games with the Athletics and Yankees this season. Gary Sanchez will rest his legs as a designated hitter in his absence, with Austin Romine getting the start behind the plate.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Sits in Game 1

    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.

  • Yankees' Kendrys Morales: Sits Tuesday

    Morales is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
