Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Playing time trending down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.

The Yankees have welcomed back the likes of Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Gio Urshela back from the injured list over the last two days, and Gleyber Torres' eventual return from a quadriceps injury will put New York's star-studded lineup back at full strength. All of those returns spell bad news for Tauchman, who finds himself out of the lineup for the fourth time in five games. All of Judge, Aaron Hicks, Clint Frazier and Brett Gardner appear to be ahead of him for starts in the outfield.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman is not in Sunday's lineup against the Orioles.

Tauchman is 4-for-18 with zero homers and one steal this month, and three of those four hits came in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against Baltimore. Clint Frazier will get the start in right field while Gary Sanchez starts at designated hitter.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Collects three hits in matinee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 3-for-3 with a run, an RBI and a stolen base in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader sweep over the Orioles.

Tauchman did not play in the nightcap, but he got the start and swatted three singles in the opener. He plated the Yankees' final run in the seven-inning win with a base hit to center field. The three-hit game helped Tauchman snap a 12-game slump in which he had collected only two base knocks in 29 at-bats, though he did draw eight walks over that span. The outfielder is slashing .265/.367/.325 on the season.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Sitting Thursday amid slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman is not in Thursday's lineup against the Mets.

He is hitting just .129 with zero extra-base hits and one steal in 31 at-bats over his last 10 games. Mike Ford will start at first base, shifting Luke Voit to designated hitter and Clint Frazier to right field.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Garners seventh straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman will start in right field and bat sixth Wednesday against the Rays.

Aaron Judge's (calf) recent return to the injured list has reopened a clear path to playing time for Tauchman, who will pick up a seventh straight start in the outfield. He went 2-for-18 over the previous six contests, but Tauchman owns a much more palatable .264/.354/.333 slash line on the season to go with a 5-for-5 success rate on stolen-base attempts.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Logs two hits, stolen base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 2-for-5 with two singles, a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Tauchman's pair of singles raised his batting average to .333 on the campaign. The outfielder has also made noise on the base paths, with the stolen base marking his fifth on the season.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Draws third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman will start in right field and bat third Sunday against the Red Sox.

Clint Frazier and Mike Ford had been the main beneficiaries since Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) landed on the injured list last weekend, but with two more lineup mainstays (Aaron Judge and DJ LeMahieu) having been shut down with injuries over the past two days, Tauchman's window for playing time seems to have opened back up. He'll be picking up his third start in a row Sunday after going 4-for-8 with two doubles, a walk, five runs and four RBI in the first two games of the series.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Tallies three hits Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 3-for-5 with a double, four RBI, two runs and a strikeout in Friday's win against the Red Sox.

Tauchman has seen his playing time drop in recent games, but he led the team in RBI during the Yankees' win against the Red Sox. He did so with only one extra-base hit as New York's offense continuously chipped away at Boston's pitching staff. The 29-year-old is hitting .343 with four doubles, seven RBI and four stolen bases over 14 games this season.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Starting streak ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

Though Tauchman is sitting out the series finale, he should have a good chance at handling a near-everyday role moving forward after Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) was moved to the 10-day injured list Sunday. Tauchman had started each of the Yankees' previous six games, going 7-for-23 with three doubles, five RBI and a stolen base.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Swipes fourth bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 1-for-4 with a double, a stolen base, a run scored and three strikeouts in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.

Tauchman whiffed in his first three at-bats, but he started the seventh inning with a double, subsequently stole third base, and came around to score on a sacrifice fly. Tauchman started the second game of the twinbill as well, going 0-for-3 with another strikeout. The 29-year-old has been receiving a healthy amount of playing time lately and could continue to start with Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) going on the injured list Sunday.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Notches another steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman recorded a stolen base, a run scored and a walk in Sunday's 9-7 win over the Red Sox.

Tauchman entered the contest in the seventh inning as a defensive replacement for Miguel Andujar. In Tauchman's lone plate appearance, he drew a walk, stole second base, and scored the tying run on a DJ LeMahieu single. The 29-year-old Tauchman has three steals and two runs scored across 10 plate appearances this year.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Racks up three hits, two steals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman went 3-for-4 with a pair of stolen bases and a run in Saturday's win over Boston.

Tauchman got the start in left field and responded with his first three hits (all singles) of the season. He also swiped his first two bases of the campaign and scored a run on Gio Urshela's grand slam. The performance offers a glimpse at Tauchman's skill set -- he's a career .303 hitter with 115 stolen bases in the minors, but he has yet to log 300 plate appearances in a major-league season.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: In OF/DH mix to begin season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman figures to be in the outfield/DH mix at the start of the campaign as the Yankees are likely to take a careful approach with players returning from injury, Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media reports.

Tauchman was expected to take on a near-everyday role to begin the season before play was suspended, but those plans have changed with Aaron Hicks (elbow), Aaron Judge (rib) and Giancarlo Stanton (calf) all expected to be ready to go by the new Opening Day. Still, all three players are working their way back from injury, so the Yankees are unlikely to overwork them during the beginning phase of the season. That opens the door for players like Tauchman, Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar, each of whom has been squeezed out of a starting role but has made valuable contributions to the team in prior seasons.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Should open season as regular
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman is expected to begin the season in an everyday role in the outfield after general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that Aaron Judge (pectoral) and Giancarlo Stanton (ankle) are both likely to be sidelined for Opening Day, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Cashman didn't offer a definitive timeline for when either injured slugger might be ready to make his season debut, but their absences will at least temporarily spare Tauchman from having to compete with the likes of Miguel Andujar and Clint Frazier for regular at-bats in the outfield. Tauchman probably already had a leg up in any job battle after posting an .865 OPS in 2019 while providing value in the field (7.1 UZR) and on the bases (6-for-6 on steal attempts). So long as he's able to avoid an early-season slump, Tauchman should be in good position to maintain a near-everyday role once the Yankees get healthier, though the eventual returns of Stanton and Judge figure to push him further down the batting order.

Yankees' Mike Tauchman: Could start Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tauchman (calf) has a chance to start in the outfield on Opening Day, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Tauchman, who finished the 2019 season on the injured list with a calf strain, is healthy again and will get reps at all three outfield spots during spring training. His role for the start of the upcoming campaign will likely be dependent partly on whether Giancarlo Stanton begins the season in the field or at designated hitter. The Yankees are also trying out Miguel Andujar in the outfield, per Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record, so Tauchman will likely begin some games on the bench despite a solid 2019 campaign during which he drove in 47 runs in 296 plate appearances.
