New York Yankees - Overview (2024)

  • GerritCole

    NYY Starting Pitcher #45

    Gerrit Cole scattered three hits and a walk across five innings on Sunday in an 8-1 win over the Blue Jays. He allowed one run and struck out six.

    This was the first time this season Cole looked like himself. His fastball velocity was much more consistent than it had been in either of his first two starts and he showed no hesitation in challenging the Blue Jays hitters with it. He also showed better command of his secondaries and the Yankees let him work all the way up to 90 pitches. While not perfect, this was the kind of start we needed to see from Cole.

  • AaronJudge

    NYY Right Fielder #99

    Aaron Judge went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer on Sunday against the Blue Jays.

    31 home runs and 82 RBI before the Fourth of July is inconceivable. It’s even more amazing when you consider Judge had just six home runs and 18 RBI on May 1st. There is no question that he’s the best power hitter in the game right now.

  • Juan Soto (hand) is back in the starting lineup and hitting second while playing right field against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

    Soto was originally not in the lineup, but the 25-year-old is feeling well enough to get back out there after missing Saturday’s contest with a contusion in his hand. It’s most welcome news for fantasy managers who have their superstar back in the lineup. J.D. Davis is back to the bench with Soto returning.

  • PhilBickford

    NYY Relief Pitcher #53

    Yankees designated RHP Phil Bickford for assignment.

    Bickford was with the Yankees for a little over a week, and he was ineffective while allowing five runs in 4 1/3 innings. He’ll now hit the waiver wire, and if he goes unclaimed he will have the option to report back to Triple-A or elect free agency.

  • JoshMaciejewski

    NYY Relief Pitcher #61

    Yankees selected the contract of LHP Josh Maciejewski from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Maciejewski was designated for assignment back in April, but he stayed in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. He’s added back to the 40-man and active roster, and Phil Bickford was designated for assignment in the corresponding move. Maciejewski won’t provide any fantasy relevance as a middle-inning option.

  • JuanSoto

    NYY Left Fielder #22

    Juan Soto (hand) is not in the starting lineup for Sunday’s game against the Blue Jays

    Soto will sit after being scratched from Saturday’s lineup with a contusion in his right hand. The 25-year-old outfielder had his imaging come back clean, but he’ll need at least one more day off before having a chance to return to the starting lineup later in the week. J.D. Davis is in the lineup as Soto’s replacement as the designated hitter while Aaron Judge patrols right field.

  • JuanSoto

    NYY Left Fielder #22

    Yankees’ manager Aaron Boone told reporters after Saturday’s loss to the Blue Jays that X-rays on the injured right hand of superstar outfielder Juan Soto came back negative for any fractures.

    The 25-year-old superstar injured himself while sliding headfirst into home plate during Friday’s battle against the Jays. The team has an off-day on Monday, so it seems very likely that he’ll rest again on Sunday before hopefully being able to return to the Bombers’ lineup for Tuesday’s series opener against the Reds.

  • AaronJudge

    NYY Right Fielder #99

    Aaron Judge went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

    Judge knocked a base hit in the first inning, then drew an intentional walk in the third. With another single in the fifth, Judge drove in the first run of the game for New York. The 32-year-old slugger is slashing an MVP-esque .313/.434/.700 with 30 homers, 64 RBI, and 80 RBI across 365 plate appearances.

  • NestorCortes

    NYY Starting Pitcher #65

    Nestor Cortes allowed three runs with five strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

    The Blue Jays got to Cortes right away as Vladimir Guerrero Jr. took him deep for a two-run homer in the first inning. Alejandro Kirk drove in a third run with a double in the fourth inning. Cortes put runners on the corners with one out in the fifth before his day was done at 87 pitches. He struck out five. The 29-year-old southpaw will take a 3.51 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and a 98/19 K/BB ratio across 105 innings into a start against the Red Sox in New York on Friday.

  • JuanSoto

    NYY Left Fielder #22

    Juan Soto was scratched from Saturday’s lineup due to a right hand contusion.

    Soto is dealing with a bruise on his right hand that he suffered on an awkward fourth-inning slide into home plate during Friday’s eventual 16-5 rout of the division-rival Blue Jays. The 25-year-old impending free agent, who blasted his 20th homer later in the contest following the incident, is headed for some precautionary imaging to rule out anything more serious. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for the moment. There should be an additional update on his status at some point on Saturday evening. Stay tuned.
