The Yankees will have to face the Red Sox Saturday afternoon without Starlin Castro. Castro was out of the Bombers’ lineup after needing to have an emergency trip to the dentist on Saturday morning.

Yankees offense again gives Sonny Gray no help in solid start

Maybe Sonny Gray should’ve been better on this night, but he would’ve had to pitch a shutout to come out a winner. Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge led off with back-to-back doubles against Doug Fister, but the Yankees went 2-for-29 with a walk the rest of the way in their lifeless 4-1 loss to the Red Sox on Friday at ...

Eduardo Nunez hits go-ahead home run as Yankees fall to Red Sox

Red Sox shortstop Eduardo Nunez didn’t attempt a bunt Friday night, unlike in the series opener between the Yankees and Red Sox Thursday, when his bunt off CC Sabathia sparked the big lefty’s ire. Instead, Nunez did far more damage to his old team, blasting a Sonny Gray offering into the left field stands in the third inning to give ...

Yankees offense silenced by Corey Kluber in loss to Indians

Joe Girardi made a bold move taking slumping Aaron Judge out of the lineup Monday. The Yankees could have used a few Judge blasts as the Indians beat Luis Severino, 6-2, at the Stadium. The Bombers mustered just three hits off Indians ace Corey Kluber. “I’ll sleep on it. Probably again (Tuesday) for sure, and then I’ll go from there,” ...

Yankees make right call by benching Aaron Judge

The time finally has arrived for Aaron Judge. “All Rise” has turned into “Take a seat,” and this is the right verdict even if it comes at the wrong time for the Yankees. The skidding rookie was out of the lineup for Monday’s series opener against Cleveland, and Joe Girardi indicated that he plans to keep Judge on the bench ...

Yankees season will be a failure if they somehow miss playoffs

There truly is no excuse for the Yankees, whose roster is essentially whole again for the first time in months, not to reach the playoffs this season. As Hal Steinbrenner put it earlier this month, such a shortcoming has to be considered a failure now, and Sunday’s runaway 10-1 win over sloppy Seattle at the Stadium accentuated that point yet ...

Yankees capitalize on early errors from Mariners in 10-1 victory

The Yankees finally won a rubber game — in large part due to a comedy of errors from the opposition. The Mariners committed five first-inning miscues leading to six Yankee runs, and the Bombers rolled to a 10-1 victory over Seattle on Sunday afternoon at The Stadium. The Yankees, who improved to 37-23 at home, had lost their previous 11 ...

Greg Bird can be just what Yankees offense needs for playoff push

When he was hitting .100 at the start of May, and then had to read in July that an unnamed Yankee source was questioning his desire to play baseball, as ridiculous as that sounded even then, Greg Bird couldn’t help but wonder exactly how the sky had fallen on him. One minute he was crushing everything in sight during spring ...

Yankees Insider: Ellsbury's big day, Judge's slump continues

The Yankees got a burst of power from an unexpected source: Jacoby Ellsbury. The center fielder accounted for four of the six runs the Yankees scored in Saturday’s win over the Mariners, which included a three-run home run in the fourth inning to break a 1-1 tie. “That’s a huge hit,” manager Joe Girardi said. “That rally started with no ...
