Why the Yankees were without their setup man BALTIMORE — Because Zack Britton didn’t pitch Tuesday and the Yankees had a two-run lead at the start of the eighth inning in the Yankees’ 7-5 win over the Orioles on Wednesday night, it was unusual to see Chad Green come out of the bullpen in what would typically be Britton’s spot. “A little beat.....

Yankees add to Red Sox misery in the best way The fact the Yankees are in firm command of the AL East this far into the season isn’t exactly a surprise. How they got here, though, certainly is.

Yankees need Tanaka, Paxton to be much better than this As splits go, this was half bad for the Yankees. Because their rotation continued to go round with limited merit.

Why ‘run line’ could be important when it comes to the Yankees It’s becoming clear that Yankees backers are going to be looking at the “run line” on almost a daily basis through the rest of the 2019 season.

Clint Frazier once again could soon be Yankees’ odd man out Clint Frazier was scheduled to sit against Chris Sale in the Yankees’ series-opener with the Red Sox before Thursday’s game was rained out in The Bronx, with Aaron Boone saying the outfielder was due for a day off.

Travis d’Arnaud destroys Yankees all by himself If the Mets had regrets about cutting Travis d’Arnaud loose earlier this year, the Yankees no doubt wish he was still in Queens, as well, after the ex-Met dominated them Monday, finishing them off with a go-ahead, three-run homer off Aroldis Chapman in the top of the ninth. The home run, d’Arnaud’s ...

DJ LeMahieu returning to where Yankees need him most defensively On Feb. 20, the Yankees had Luke Voit and Greg Bird to play first base and DJ LeMahieu was viewed as a very good player signed to a two-year deal for $24 million who would move between second and third base.

Yankees’ hunt for ace is energy better spent elsewhere Hal Steinbrenner calls Brian Cashman.

Marcus Stroman shows Yankees all they need to see Doing nothing can’t be an option. No option ranks as a slam-dunk, can’t-miss, blame-the-baseball-gods-if-it-doesn’t-work situation.

Gio Urshela’s acrobatic play still has Yankees in awe As Aaron Judge came to the plate in the bottom of the fifth with DJ LeMahieu and Gio Urshela on the corners, a wild pitch from Toronto pitcher Marcus Stroman sent Urshela racing toward home plate.

James Paxton is brilliant but brief in another Yankees win The widespread belief throughout the industry is that the Yankees will be heavily involved in the trade market for a starting pitcher because nobody can predict when Luis Severino rejoins the rotation from the injured list.

Aaron Judge’s value to Yankees is so much more than homers SEATTLE — This is a Yankees truth: When Aaron Judge is going well, everything seems better around the team. The mood is brighter. There is more of a sense of ferocity to the lineup. Just a lot more smiles around the ballclub. There is a special energy Judge brings, everything from the postgame music...

Chad Green gives Yankees plenty to think about The Yankees’ use of a reliever starting a game has been a little different than other teams who use the “opener’’ strategy.

Yankees’ James Paxton keeps getting wrecked in the first Yankees manager Aaron Boone often says James Paxton’s horrible numbers in first innings are due in part to bad luck.

Yankees’ Brett Gardner has to end his bat antics There is a reason the Yankees keep bending and twisting their roster year to year to keep Brett Gardner on the team, even if he’s only 85 percent the player he used to be.
