  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Tracking toward return next week

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that LeMahieu (foot) could be activated for the team's April 29-May 2 series in Baltimore, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    LeMahieu will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Somerset on Tuesday and is slated to play four games before being activated if all goes well. The veteran infielder is coming back from a bone bruise and non-displaced fracture in his right foot. He should become the Yankees' primary third baseman upon his return, with Oswaldo Cabrera shifting back to a utility role.

  • Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Could throw off mound next week

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Cole (elbow) could begin throwing off a mound sometime next week, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.

    Cole extended his flat-ground throwing to 120 feet on Tuesday, which is typically the farthest distance from which a pitcher plays catch before he gets on a mound. While nothing definitive has been decided in regards to a bullpen session, it sounds like one could be coming within the next week or so. Cole is working his way back from nerve irritation and edema in his right elbow.

  • Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Extends throwing to 120 feet

    Cole (elbow) extended his flat-ground throwing to 120 feet Tuesday, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.

    It's usually the farthest distance a pitcher plays catch from before progressing to mound work, but Cole said Tuesday that he's not sure when he will throw a bullpen session. He will have a day of rest in his throwing program Wednesday before the next step is revealed. Cole isn't eligible to return until late May and when he'll ultimately be activated is still up in the air.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Rehab assignment will be brief

    LeMahieu (foot) has said he expects to play "less than five" rehab games before being activated, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    LeMahieu is beginning a rehab assignment with Double-A Somerset on Tuesday. Assuming the Yankees concur with the infielder's assessment of how many rehab games he will require, it sounds like he could be back as soon as the weekend series in Milwaukee. LeMahieu has been out all season with a bone bruise and non-displaced fracture in his right foot. Oswaldo Cabrera's production has slowed since a hot start, so LeMahieu should quickly regain his role as the primary third baseman.

  • Yankees' Jorbit Vivas: Activated from Triple-A IL

    Vivas (eye) has been activated from the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Vivas suffered an orbital fracture late in spring training but is now ready for game action. The 23-year-old utility player is on the 40-man roster and could eventually push for his first big-league promotion this season.

  • Yankees' Carlos Rodon: No-decision despite seven scoreless

    Rodon did not factor into the decision, allowing one hit and two walks over seven scoreless innings during Monday's 2-0 loss to the Athletics. He struck out four.

    Rodon was mired in a pitcher's duel with Oakland's JP Sears and neither blinked, leaving each with a tough luck no-decision. Rodon managed seven innings with 92 pitches, though he threw first-pitch strikes to only nine of the 25 batters he faced. The continued control issues that resulted in his fifth consecutive start with multiple walks was the only negative in what served as a rebound for Rodon, who lasted only four innings during his last start against Toronto. The 31-year-old lefty will carry a 2.70 ERA and 1.35 WHIP into his next start, tentatively slated to take place over the weekend in Milwaukee.

  • Yankees' Austin Wells: Gives way to Trevino behind plate

    Wells is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Athletics, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

    Wells will head to the bench for the fifth time in eight games, with four of those absences coming with the opposition bringing left-handed pitchers to the hill. Though the Yankees seem to be opting for a platoon at catcher between the lefty-hitting Wells and the righty-hitting Jose Trevino, it's possible that Wells moves into a pure backup role or is optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre if he's unable to get going at the plate anytime soon. Wells has mustered a lowly .347 OPS through his first 13 games of the season.

  • Yankees' Alex Verdugo: Collects trio of hits

    Verdugo went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored during Sunday's 5-4 win over Tampa Bay.

    Verdugo played a key role in the Yankees' four-run fifth inning, plating Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton with a bases-loaded single before eventually coming around to score. Verdugo's runs batted in were his first since April 9 (10 games) despite him batting .306 with eight runs scored since.

  • Yankees' Victor Gonzalez: Fills in for save

    Gonzalez earned the save Sunday, allowing one walk and no hits with a strikeout over a scoreless inning.

    Gonzalez drew the save opportunity due to Clay Holmes getting a day off, and the former converted for his second save of the campaign. Gonzalez has been a reliable arm for the Yankees thus far, yielding a run in just one of his nine appearances this season (8.1 innings).

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Excellent for first win

    Gil (1-1) picked up the win Sunday, allowing two hits and three walks with nine strikeouts over 5.2 scoreless innings against the Rays.

    Although Gil's walk issues persisted -- he's allowed at least three walks in each of his four starts this season -- he turned in his first scoreless start of the campaign and set a season high in strikeouts. He's yet to allow more than three hits in a game and hasn't been tagged for a homer in 19.2 innings. Gil is tentatively scheduled for a start against the Brewers on Friday.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Beginning rehab stint Tuesday

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that LeMahieu (foot) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment Tuesday, Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran infielder was originally expected to begin the rehab stint Friday, but it was pushed back after an MRI showed less healing than expected. LeMahieu has been cleared for game action just a couple days later, however, so it's apparently not a significant issue. He'll likely require at least a handful of games in the minors before joining the Yankees, as he's been sidelined just over a month.

  • Yankees' Austin Wells: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Wells is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    Wells and Jose Trevino have alternated starts behind the plate over the past eight games, and that trend will continue Sunday after Wells went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout Saturday. Wells is hitless in his past 19 at-bats.
