New York Yankees set to acquire Joey Gallo from Texas Rangers for six minor leaguers

The New York Yankees are concluding a deal to acquire outfielder Joey Gallo from the Texas Rangers, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Wednesday night. The deal is pending a medical review. The Rangers will get right-handers Glenn Otto and Randy Vasquez, second baseman Ezequiel Duran, shortstop Josh Smith, second baseman/outfielder Trevor Hauver and outfielder Everson Pereira from New York, sources told Passan. Gallo was a late scratch from the Rangers’ lineup ahead of Wednesday night’s game versus the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks, with speculation that a trade was in the works. That proved to be the case, with the Yankees swooping in and acquiring arguably the […]

Judge, Sánchez drive Yanks to blowout win over Royals

Yankees hitters have clawed out of an early season slump with a string of clutch, late-game hits. The Bronx Bombers needed no such fireworks in this one — a start-to-finish shellacking that’s inspiring confidence ahead of a weekend series in Boston. “It’s good to see these guys starting to get a little bit of that swagger,” manager Aaron Boone said. Aaron Judge homered for the first of his three hits, Gary Sánchez connected for the second consecutive game and New York got its first blowout triumph in a month, defeating the Kansas City Royals 8-1 Thursday. Judge got the Yankees started with a solo […]

Frazier’s 11th-inning HR lifts slumping Yankees over Rays

Clint Frazier hit a game-ending, two-run homer with two outs in the 11th inning after making a game-saving catch in the eighth, and the slumping New York Yankees defeat the rival Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 Tuesday night. The righty-hitting Frazier turned on a slider from right-hander Andrew Kittredge (5-1) and stood at the plate to admire the drive, capping a tight finish in which both teams came up short on potential rallies. One of those stalled efforts came in the eighth, when Frazier dove and needed every inch of his mitt to catch Joey Wendle’s soft-hit liner to strand two. New York ended a four-game slide and […]

Manoah dominates to win debut, Blue Jays split DH with Yanks

A poised and confident Alek Manoah dominated the Yankees with six innings of two-hit ball to win his major league debut, and the Toronto Blue Jays defeated New York 2-0 on Thursday in a doubleheader opener. New York rebounded to win the second game 5-3 behind Aaron Judge’s tying, two-run homer in the third inning off Robbie Ray and Gary Sánchez’s go-ahead solo drive in the fourth. Marcus Semien and Bo Bichette hit back-to-back homers in the third inning off Domingo Germán (4-3) in the makeup of Wednesday night’s rainout. Bichette provided a 3-1 lead in the second match with a three-run homer, but New York beat Toronto for […]

Gerrit Cole gives New York Yankees best starters’ stretch since 1932

Gerrit Cole shook off rare control problems to pitch four-hit ball over seven innings and give the Yankees their most dominant stretch of starting pitching in 89 years, leading New York over the Chicago White Sox 7-0 Saturday for a five-game winning streak. Cole (6-2) allowed four singles in seven innings, struck out seven and walked as many as three for the first time since Aug. 31. Rebounding from his worst outing this campaign, he lowered his ERA to 1.81 and ended the day with a 100.8 mph fastball that Andrew Vaughn took for a called third strike, Cole’s fastest pitch this season and the fourth fastest of […]

Yanks rally past Nats 4-3 in 10th, Scherzer strikes out 14

The smallest of hits decided a huge pitching matchup. Max Scherzer overwhelmed batters to dominate a Cy Young Award-winning duel with Corey Kluber, reaching double-digit strikeouts for the 100th time. After striking out three times versus Scherzer, Gleyber Torres blooped a tying single in the ninth inning and won the game with a 50-foot single into a five-man infield in the 11th that gave the New York Yankees a thrilling 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals on Saturday. “Especially with the five-man infield, you don’t usually expect to see an infield single like that to win a ballgame,” Aaron Judge said. “But Gleyber’s been hitting the ball — he’ll hit it right at […]

Kluber gets win, Yankees hit 3 HR in 5-1 win over Orioles

Corey Kluber has his best start in two years to gain his first victory for the Yankees, Kyle Higashioka homered again as he gains playing time from Gary Sánchez and New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 Tuesday night. Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton also homered — the Yankees are 9-0 when they go deep in the same game, including the playoffs. New York stopped a four-game skid at Camden Yards and at 10-13 moved into a tie with the Orioles for last in the AL East. Kluber (1-2), who signed an $11 million, one-year contract as a free agent, permitted one run and six hits with five […]

Ryu sharp as Blue Jays top Yankees

Hyun Jin Ryu cruised into the seventh inning, Marcus Semien and Rowdy Tellez homered, and the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the New York Yankees 7-3 on Tuesday night. Ryu (1-1) permitted only an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings, striking out seven and limiting the Yankees to four hits and a walk. The Blue Jays ace retired 12 in a row after DJ LeMahieu had a leadoff infield single in the first. “Vintage Ryu,” Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said. “When he takes the mound, we know we have a good chance to win. Ryu threw 68 of 95 pitches for strikes. “The way it plays during the game, I see which […]

New York Yankees put Corey Kluber second behind Gerrit Cole in rotation

Corey Kluber will follow ace Gerrit Cole in the New York Yankees’ rotation, and Jameson Taillon will be skipped the first time through as the team builds him up slowly in his return following Tommy John surgery. Cole will start Thursday’s opener against Toronto at Yankee Stadium and Kluber, returning from two injury-filled seasons, will start Saturday against the Blue Jays. “When he’s at his best, he’s kind of masterful and precise,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “We’ve seen all that flash this spring.” A 34-year-old righty, Kluber signed an $11 million, one-year contract with the Yankees, his third team in three years, The two-time Cy […]

Yanks star Stanton off to strong start after smashing finish

Giancarlo Stanton is picking up where he finished the postseason last year. Healthy and hard hitting. The New York Yankees slugger homered in each of his first five playoff matches in 2020, a stretch that brought flashbacks of his spectacular 2017 NL MVP season and hopes that several injury-impacted years were behind him. Stanton ended with six homers and 13 RBI in seven postseason games, including a tough five-game Division Series loss to the AL champion Tampa Bay Rays. Stanton is 7 for 21 during spring training with two doubles and a homer that had an exit velocity of 115 mph. He also hit […]
