Yanks make it two-in-a-row over Rays
Cameron Maybin’s consistent refrain has been that he will not waste energy worrying about things that are out of his control, such as the security of his roster spot.

Yanks escape Toronto with a single win on Thursday night
The Yankees believe that they can find enough playing time for their infielders once Didi Gregorius rejoins the lineup, in part by altering DJ LeMahieu’s job assignment.

The plan makes sense on paper, but... more

Paxton lights out against Padres; DJ, Voit, Urshela, Torres go deep
James Paxton’s return to the Yankees on Wednesday afternoon couldn’t have gone much better than it did, considering the pitch-count limitations that manager Aaron Boone cited before the game.
