Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Could be back for World Series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Brian Cashman confirmed last week that Tauchman (calf) is fully healthy and viewed as a roster option for the World Series, should the Yankees advance, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Tauchman has been on the shelf since Sept. 9 with a left calf strain, but Cashman said the organization is comfortable with where he stands on the health front after the outfielder was able to complete full baseball activities at the Yankees' spring training facility in Tampa. With Giancarlo Stanton (quadriceps) nursing an injury that inhibits him on the bases and in the field, the Yankees could view Tauchman as a more viable reserve outfield option during the Fall Classic.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman (calf) played catch Wednesday, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

A calf strain has sidelined Tauchman since early September. He's not expected to have a chance to return this year unless the Yankees make the World Series, and even then, he'd only have a small chance to do so.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Could return for World Series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman (calf) has a "small chance" of returning to action if the Yankees make the World Series, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Tauchman has not played since Sept. 8 and has yet to resume baseball activities, though he has reported improvement in his strained left calf. He had a productive season at the plate, batting .277 with 13 homers and 47 RBI in 87 games, so he would be an enticing option should New York advance to the World Series. However, with limited time left to rehab and no clear recovery timeline established, the odds of Tauchman playing again this season are clearly long.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Has not resumed baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman (calf) indicated that he is improving but has not yet resumed baseball activities, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Though Tauchman's lack of participation in baseball activities further emphasizes the unlikelihood of a return in the regular season, his improvement bodes well for potential activation should the Yankees advance in the playoffs. The 28-year-old was slashing a productive .277/.361/.504 with 13 homers and 47 RBI in 296 plate appearances before going down with a strained left calf Sept. 8.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a Grade 2 left calf strain.

The diagnosis and accompanying 6-to-8 week recovery timetable take Tauchman out for the rest of the regular season and likely the postseason as well, though a return can't be completely ruled out if the Yankees make it deep into October. Tauchman's 128 wRC+ ranks 52nd among all players with at least 250 plate appearances this season, but on this team, he won't be assured anything for 2020.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman was diagnosed with a Grade 2 calf strain and will miss 6-to-8 weeks, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Tauchman exited Sunday's game against the Red Sox with a left calf injury, and a subsequent MRI revealed the outfielder is dealing with a partial tear. This is a tough break for the 28-year-old, who was slashing .277/.361/.504 with 13 home runs and six stolen bases across 87 games before suffering the injury. He'll miss the remainder of the regular season and likely all of the playoffs as a result. Cameron Maybin -- who is starting in left field Monday -- and Clint Frazier are candidates to see time in the outfield in place of Tauchman.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman (calf) is not starting Monday against the Red Sox.

His absence is expected, as he's reportedly traveling back to New York for an MRI on his tight left calf. His return timeline should become clearer once the results of the test are known. Cameron Maybin returns from a wrist injury to start in left field.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Headed for MRI on calf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman was removed from Sunday's game against the Red Sox with a tight left calf and will return to New York on Monday to undergo an MRI, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

He went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, two runs and two RBI prior to exiting after injuring himself in the outfield. The Yankees are on a road trip that runs through Sept. 15, so the fact that he has left the team suggests he is a little worse than day-to-day. Clint Frazier and Cameron Maybin should see extra playing time in Tauchman's absence.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Exits with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman left Sunday's game against the Red Sox with an apparent leg injury, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

He suffered the injury while fielding a ball in left field and was seen favoring his left leg. Cameron Maybin replaced him in left field.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Production waning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored Sunday in the Yankees' 5-4 win over the Athletics.

With only two hits in 27 at-bats over his last eight games, Tauchman is in the midst of one of his few rough patches in an otherwise impressive season. He'll remain in the lineup Monday against the Rangers as the Yankees' No. 7 hitter, but Tauchman could lose out on steady work once Aaron Hicks (elbow) is back from the 10-day injured list, perhaps around mid-September.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Plates two runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 2-for-2 with a walk and two RBI in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Athletics.

Tauchman put the Yankees on the board with a run-scoring single in the second inning and drove in his second run on a flyout to left field in the sixth. The outfielder hasn't homered or nabbed a stolen base in his last 10 games, but he's still provided some value to fantasy managers with a .290 average over that span.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Sitting out second game of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman is out of the lineup for the second game of Monday's doubleheader with the Orioles, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

He'll cede his spot in left field to Cameron Maybin as the Yankees go with an extra right-handed bat to counter Orioles southpaw Ty Blach, who gets the starting nod for the nightcap. Tauchman started and went hitless across four at-bats in the Yankees' 8-5 win in the afternoon affair.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Homers again in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to Toronto.

Tauchman plated the first run of the game for the Yankees with a blast to right field in the eighth inning. The 28-year-old has now homered in four of his last five games and is slashing .429/.484/1.000 with five long balls, 14 RBI and three steals in August.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Continues torrid stretch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in a blowout victory over Toronto on Thursday.

Tauchman plated a pair of runs on a homer to right field in the third inning and later capped the scoring with a two-run single in the ninth. The 28-year-old has been on an incredible run since the start of July, hitting .421 (32-for-76) with seven homers and 26 RBI in 23 games over that stretch.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Fills stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 2-for-4 with a double, home run, two RBI and a stolen base in a 9-4 victory against the Orioles on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old is a power source for owners all of a sudden. He has three homers in the last two games and has posted nine RBI since Aug. 3. In six of his past 11 games, Tauchman has also recorded multiple hits. He is batting .299 with 10 home runs, 36 RBI, 36 runs and four steals in 174 at-bats this season.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Goes deep twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI and three runs scored Monday night against Baltimore.

Tauchman clubbed a solo homer to left in the sixth inning and gave his club a three-run cushion with a two-run blast in the eighth. The 28-year-old has come through for a battered Yankees squad of late, registering three home runs and nine RBI over his team's last five matchups.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Everyday job reopens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman will start in left field and bat seventh Sunday against the Red Sox, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

Cameron Maybin recently appeared to have won out over Tauchman for an everyday spot in the New York outfield, but there should be opportunities for both to see regular action after center fielder Aaron Hicks (elbow) was moved to the 10-day injured list Sunday. Brett Gardner will act as the main replacement for Hicks in center, while Tauchman, Maybin and Aaron Judge are expected to fill the two corner-outfield and DH spots in some combination in most games. Despite his playing time being somewhat sporadic, Tauchman has been a well-above-average hitter this season, putting together a .284/.363/.506 slash line (128 wRC+) across 182 plate appearances.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Clubs two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run home run and two runs scored overall in Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Diamondbacks.

Tauchman provided the Yankees their lone runs off starter Zack Greinke, but the rain delay ended his outing after five frames and the offense came alive against the bullpen. The 28-year-old had an impressive July with a .423/.474/.750 slash line, six doubles and three home runs in 16 games.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Singles three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 8-6 loss to Minnesota.

Tauchman continues fighting for playing time in a crowded Yankees lineup but collected a pair of three-hit games over the last four days is a good way to earn it. He's gone 12-for-23 (.522) with nine runs scored in July.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Big night versus former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base and a run in an 8-2 win over the Rockies on Friday.

With the Yankees kicking off a series against his former team, Tauchman was awarded a rare start and made the most of it. On the strength of his three-hit performance, Tauchman now maintains a respectable .781 OPS for the season, but the 28-year-old nonetheless looks bound to stick in a fourth-outfielder role while all of Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks and Aaron Judge are healthy. Tauchman will be out of the lineup for Saturday's contest, per Erik Boland of Newsday.
