  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Dominates again in win

    Cortes (12-4) earned the win Saturday, allowing one hit and two walks over 7.1 scoreless innings against the Orioles while striking out 12.

    Cortes put on a clinic on Saturday, striking out seven of the first nine batters he faced while never allowing a runner to reach second base. He generated 20 swinging strikes and dominated Orioles hitters with his four-seamer all afternoon. The left-hander has now pitched 13.1 scoreless innings over his last two starts while allowing just two hits over that stretch. His 12 strikeouts Saturday also matched a career high.

  • Yankees' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Slated to start Sunday

    Gonzalez will be called up by the Yankees to start Sunday's game against the Orioles, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

    The status of Sunday's series finale against Baltimore is somewhat up in the air due to inclement weather predicted for the Bronx, but Gonzalez will draw the start if the game takes place. After making big-league appearances with the Twins and Brewers earlier in the year, the right-hander joined the Yankees on a minor-league deal at the end of August and posted a 3.63 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 22.1 innings over five starts at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

  • Yankees' Oswaldo Cabrera: Accounts for team's only run Friday

    Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to Baltimore.

    The Yankees struggled to produce offense against a trio of Orioles pitchers, finishing with just one run and four hits. Cabrera produced two of the knocks and accounted for the team's lone run with his solo homer to right field in the fifth inning. The rookie has hit five homers for the Yankees this season, all of which have come in his past 16 games. He's slashing .316/.409/.667 with 12 RBI, 15 runs and three stolen bases over that stretch.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Plays catch Saturday

    Montas (shoulder) resumed playing catch Saturday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Montas has spent a week and a half on the injured list with right shoulder inflammation and was cleared to throw off flat ground Saturday. Manager Aaron Boone hasn't officially ruled the right-hander out for the ALDS, but he said Saturday that it's more likely that Montas will be able to join the Yankees' bullpen if the team advances to the ALCS.

  • Yankees' Jacob Barnes: Called up by Yankees

    Barnes' contract was selected from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday.

    Barnes joined the Yankees on a minor-league deal at the end of August, and he posted a 2.57 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in seven innings over nine appearances at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre over the last month. The right-hander will be a late-season addition to the team's big-league bullpen after Zack Britton (shoulder) was placed on the 60-day injured list Saturday.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Heads back to injured list

    Britton was placed on the 60-day injured list with left shoulder fatigue Saturday.

    Britton was removed from Friday's relief appearance due to his shoulder issue, and the injury will force him to miss the remainder of the regular season and the entire postseason. The southpaw made just three major-league appearances in 2022 and allowed a run on a hit and six walks while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning. Jacob Barnes' contract was selected to take Britton's place in the bullpen.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Won't be placed on injured list

    Holmes (shoulder) won't be placed on the injured list since he would then be out for the ALDS, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

    Holmes has been sidelined with a right shoulder strain and is five days into a planned 10-day shutdown from throwing. However, manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that he hopes Holmes will be able to build back up in time to pitch in the ALDS, which begins Oct. 11.

  • Yankees' Jose Trevino: Absent from Saturday's lineup

    Trevino isn't starting Saturday against Baltimore.

    Trevino went 0-for-3 with a strikeout during Friday's loss to the Orioles and will head to the bench for the third time in the last four games. Kyle Higashioka is starting behind the dish and batting eighth.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Retreats to bench

    LeMahieu isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Orioles.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Handed fourth loss

    German (2-4) allowed two runs on three hits and three walks over 5.1 innings Friday, striking out six and taking a loss against the Orioles.

    After allowing a run in the first inning, German kept Baltimore scoreless for the following four frames before he was tagged with another run in the sixth. The 30-year-old is now sporting a 3.31 ERA with a 52:18 K:BB through 68 frames this season. German, who hasn't picked up a win since Aug. 22, is lined up to make his final start of the regular season in Texas next week.

  • Yankees' Zack Britton: Exits with arm fatigue

    Britton left Friday's game against the Orioles with left arm fatigue, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    He came in to relieve Domingo German in the middle of the sixth inning and walked a batter and then left with the injury before recording an out. It's unclear how long Britton will be unavailable.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Out with shoulder strain

    Holmes is out with a right shoulder strain and the Yankees hope to have him ready for the ALDS, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    A recent MRI confirmed the strain and Holmes also had a cortisone shot. Candidates to get the ball in the Yankees' next save opportunity include Scott Effross, Lou Trivino and Aroldis Chapman. It's possible Holmes won't pitch again until 2023.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Takes batting practice Friday

    Carpenter (foot) took batting practice on the field and hit in the cage Friday, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    Carpenter has been working on weight-bearing activities on his fractured foot recently and hasn't had any issues. It's still possible that the 36-year-old rejoins the Yankees for their upcoming series against the Rangers to close out the regular season, but manager Aaron Boone also hinted Friday that Carpenter could ultimately head to Somerset to take live at-bats ahead of postseason play. Regardless of whether Carpenter is back in action during the final series of the regular season, it seems likely that he'll be in the mix for a postseason return.

  • Yankees' Andrew Benintendi: Slated to take dry swings

    Benintendi (wrist) is scheduled to begin taking dry swings Saturday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Benintendi said last week that he doesn't expect to return from the injured list before the playoffs, but it's encouraging that he'll resume swinging over the weekend. It's not yet clear whether the 28-year-old will be available for the start of the postseason, but he seems to be trending in the right direction.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Throws bullpen session

    Peralta (back) threw a bullpen session Thursday, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    Peralta has been on the injured list for a week and a half due to left thoracic spine tightness, but he's resumed mound work and felt good after Thursday's throwing session. The Yankees initially hoped that Peralta would be available for next week's series in Texas, and he'll likely be considered for activation as long as he continues to feel good.

  • Yankees' Tim Locastro: Optioned to Triple-A

    Locastro was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

    With DJ LeMahieu (toe) getting reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Locastro will be the one booted off the major-league roster. Since being promoted at the end of August, Locastro has made just nine plate appearances and recorded a hit during two of them.
