As he did at the All-Star Game, the closer said that no decisions about his future have

Now pitching for the Seattle Mariners, No. 42, Mariano Rivera. It’s difficult to imagine, but that unfathomable scenario was close to becoming a reality. MLB.com’s Full Account takes a deep dive into Mariano Rivera’s life, including that time the Yankees nearly traded him to Seattle -- a move that would

Didi's slam makes Judge's '2nd' HR stand up

@BryanHoch
12:27 AM EDT

NEW YORK -- Aaron Judge tracked the flight of his eighth-inning drive as it spun toward the 314-foot marker in right field, expecting that it would tail to the right of the foul pole. Indeed, the masses on hand at Yankee Stadium groaned when the ball arced a few seats

CC-Avisail tiff clears benches, bullpens in Bronx

@BryanHoch
12:39 AM EDT

NEW YORK -- Didi Gregorius jogged across the infield and spotted CC Sabathia near the first-base line, jawing toward the Rays' Avisaíl García. The Yankees’ shortstop attempted to save his heated teammate from an ejection, then realized he was going to have to flex some muscle to do so. "It

NEW YORK -- Luis Severino and Dellin Betances have watched from the sidelines as their Yankees teammates compiled the best record in the American League, and as the right-handers work toward re-joining the active roster, both believe they can contribute to the postseason push.

LeMahieu earns 'Hustle' award for all-out style

@BryanHoch
July 16, 2019

NEW YORK -- DJ LeMahieu's blue-collar approach has earned the first-year Yankees infielder numerous plaudits, and perhaps none of those accolades is more warranted than his selection as the team's 2019 recipient of the Heart and Hustle Award. Bestowed by the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association, the Heart and

One too many Aroldis sliders erases Edwin HRs

@BryanHoch
July 16, 2019

NEW YORK -- The air-raid sirens and digitized flames that accompany each of Aroldis Chapman's Yankee Stadium entrances continue to celebrate the closer's hard-throwing reputation, but unlike in years past, hitters are learning to remain on guard for a hearty diet of sliders. Chapman snapped several good ones to get

Unheralded to indispensable: Gio's journey

@BryanHoch
July 14, 2019

NEW YORK -- Gio Urshela's emergence has provided some of the Yankees' most delightful surprises, and the quick-thinking infielder continued his dream season with a pivotal hook slide on Sunday afternoon that provided the go-ahead run in yet another series victory. Dashing toward home plate on a fifth-inning wild pitch,

Yankees avoid shutout but fall short of victory

July 13, 2019

NEW YORK -- 171. That’s how many consecutive games the Yankees had managed to score at least one run. That’s how many times -- since June 30 of last season -- that they hadn’t been shut out. For much of Saturday’s game against the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium, it

NEW YORK -- Brian Cashman tossed and turned in his London hotel room last week, the Yankees' increasing hunger for starting pitching keeping him from a restful evening.

@BryanHoch
July 13, 2019

@BryanHoch
July 12, 2019

NEW YORK -- The Yankees returned from the All-Star break understanding that their impressive first half has them in position to enjoy a special season, but with nothing secured yet. As the decision-makers upstairs continue to search for upgrades, Domingo Germán’s electric right arm is easing the urgency to tweak

Encarnacion delivers first big Bronx moment

Slugger belts bases-clearing double off wall against former club
July 13, 2019

NEW YORK -- When the Yankees traded for Edwin Encarnacion on June 16, they knew what to expect. This was a guy they were all too familiar with. It was in the American League East, after all, where Encarnacion made his name as one of the game’s most feared power

Yankees Magazine: Excelsior

The injury that delayed the start of Sir Didi’s season could not deter his never-ending quest to be the best
July 12, 2019

Aaron Boone just walked away, the winner by default. The Yankees’ manager controls the lineup card, and as such, he gets the last word. Or, in the case of this Cleveland evening, the last silent power move. It’s fun but perhaps clichéd to discuss all that Didi Gregorius can do.

@MikeLupica
July 11, 2019

The way things have gone for the Yankees this season, Brian Cashman probably expected CC Sabathia to pull something when he walked out to the mound to visit teammate Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning of Tuesday night's All-Star Game. “Let’s just say,” Cashman said on Thursday morning, “that I

@feinsand
July 10, 2019

Injuries and their cost easily could have been the story of the Yankees’ first half. Instead, the running theme for 2019 has been New York’s ability to overcome a multitude of health issues and thrive in the face of adversity. Had someone told Aaron Boone that his club would not
