Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Hits walkoff single
Torres went 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI in Saturday's win over Washington.
Both of Torres' hits were huge for the Yankees. He tied the game in the bottom of the ninth with an RBI single, then won it with a walkoff single in the bottom of the 11th, a perfectly placed mishit that didn't get past pitcher Tanner Rainey but was enough to get the run home....

Yankees' Corey Kluber: One out shy of quality start
Kluber threw 5.2 innings Saturday against the Nationals, giving up two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six. He did not factor into the decision.
Kluber allowed one run on a bases-loaded walk to Juan Soto in the third inning. He was pulled with two outs in the sixth after allowing the go-ahead run on an RBI single by Starlin Castro on his 101st pitch. The veteran was spared a loss when the Yankees tied the game in the bottom of the ninth and went on to win in extras. Kluber failed to finish the fifth inning in each of his first four starts of the year but has averaged 6.8 innings over his last three starts and now owns a 3.06 ERA on the season.... See More ...

Yankees' Luke Voit: Nearing return
Manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Voit (knee) is expected to be reinstated from the injured list early next week, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Voit began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday and has gone 4-for-9 with a home run, a double, two RBI, two runs and two walks in three games. The 30-year-old could play a few more games at the Triple-A level but will likely be able to make his season debut during the Yankees' upcoming series in Tampa Bay.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Zack Britton: Sim game on tap
Manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Britton (elbow) is scheduled to throw in a simulated game next week, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Britton resumed mound work last week, and he's slated to take another step in his recovery next week. The left-hander will likely begin a rehab assignment following his simulated game, but he isn't eligible to return to the major-league bullpen until the end of May.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Not starting Saturday
Hicks isn't starting Saturday's game against Washington.
Hicks had gone 5-for-10 with a double, three runs and two RBI in the last three games. Brett Gardner will take over in center field and bat fifth.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Remains out of lineup
Urshela (knee) isn't starting Saturday against the Nationals.
Urshela suffered a knee injury Thursday and underwent an MRI that came back clean. He's considered day-to-day but will be excluded from the lineup for a second straight game. Urshela is feeling better Saturday, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return to the lineup Sunday, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports. DJ LeMahieu will shift to third base while Tyler Wade starts at the keystone.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Gary Sanchez: Swats third home run
Sanchez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and a strikeout in Friday's 11-4 loss to the Nationals.
Sanchez has lost his grip on the primary catching job recently, but he flashed his power with his third home run of the season in the second inning Friday. The 28-year-old has started in just four of the last 10 games and will need to perform on a more consistent basis if he hopes to carve out more playing time.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Blasts two home runs in loss
LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and a strikeout in Friday's 11-4 loss to the Nationals.
LeMahieu led off the bottom of the first inning with a home run, and he smacked a game-tying shot with no outs in the sixth frame. The Yankees were unable to pick up the win, but LeMahieu is now hitting .283 with three homers, 21 runs and nine RBI this season.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Charged with loss Friday
Loaisiga (3-2) allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits and no walks while striking out one in one-third of an inning to take the loss against the Nationals on Friday.
Loaisiga hadn't allowed more than one run in any of his first 14 relief appearances this year, but he was hit hard in the eighth inning Friday and was charged with his second loss of the season. The right-hander has now posted a 2.89 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 18.2 innings in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Jameson Taillon: Settles for no-decision
Taillon allowed three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out five in 6.1 innings in Friday's loss to the Nationals. He didn't factor into the decision.
Taillon picked up his first win of the season in his last outing, but he allowed three runs on a pair of homers in the top of the second inning Friday. The Yankees tied the game in the bottom of the sixth, and Taillon was forced to settle for a no-decision. The right-hander now has a 5.02 ERA and 34:6 K:BB in 28.2 innings across his first six starts of the season. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Tampa Bay on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Sitting Friday
Higashioka is not in the lineup Friday against the Nationals.
Higashioka will take a seat for the second time in the past three games while mired in a 1-for-16 slump. Gary Sanchez will start behind the plate and bat sixth Friday for New York.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Good to go Friday
Hicks (leg) is starting in center field and batting fifth Friday against Washington.
The 31-year-old played through some leg cramping Thursday, and the issue won't affect his availability for Friday's contest. Hicks is 9-for-20 with a homer, two doubles, three walks, four RBI and five runs over his past six games.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Gio Urshela: Out of Friday's lineup
Urshela (knee) is not in the lineup Friday against the Nationals.
The 29-year-old was pulled from Thursday's contest with a knee injury and is considered day-to-day after his MRI results came back clean, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. The Yankees called up Miguel Andujar earlier in the day but optioned Albert Abreu to clear a spot, so Urshela doesn't appear to be heading to the injured list at this point. Andujar will play first base and take Urshela's spot in the lineup, shifting DJ LeMahieu to the hot corner.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Chad Green: Shelled by Houston
Green (0-3) took the loss and suffered a blown save against the Astros on Thursday as a result of allowing three runs on two hits and a walk. His only out came by way of strikeout.
Green entered the contest with a shiny 1.02 ERA through 14 appearances, but that number shot all the way up to 2.50 after the rough outing. The big blow was a three-run home run off the bat of Jose Altuve that pushed Houston into a two-run lead. Green has an overall 19:3 K:BB across 18 innings this season, so he should remain a trusted part of New York's bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Albert Abreu: Returns to Triple-A
Abreu was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.
The 25-year-old was promoted Wednesday but didn't pitch during his brief time in the majors. Abreu gave up one run over two innings during his previous stint with the big-league club this season.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Miguel Andujar: Called up by Yanks
Andujar was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.
The 26-year-old will join the Yankees just after the start of the minor-league season with Luke Voit (knee) and Rougned Odor (knee) on the injured list while Gio Urshela (knee) and Aaron Hicks (leg) battle more minor injuries. Andujar was set to get reps at first base, third base and left field in the minors, and he could see some playing time early on with the team banged up.... See More ... See Less
