Mon May 1320:26Hicks back, but Yankees put Andújar and Loaisiga on IL
NEW YORK (AP) — No sooner do the injury-ravaged Yankees finally get a player back than two more go down.On the same day New York activated center fielder Aaron Hicks for the first time this season, third baseman Miguel Andújar and right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga were placed on the 10-day injured list.The moves Monday left the Yankees with 13 players on the IL. They've put 17 on the list for 18 total stints this year — Andújar now twice because of a small labrum tear in his right shoulder. Loaisiga, the rotation replacement for injured James Paxton, has a strained rotator cuff and will be shut down for four weeks.Despite all the missing firepower, New York (24-16) has received outstanding contributions from several unheralded fill-ins and began the day just a half-game behind first-place Tampa Bay in the AL East.Runner-up for 2018 AL Rookie of the Year, Andújar initially was sidelined from April 1 to May 3. He is 3 for 34 since returning and is batting .128 overall (6 for 47) with... [More]

Sun Apr 2120:15Judge has 'pretty significant strain,' will be out a while
NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge won't be back with the New York Yankees anytime soon, a further blow to an injury-decimated team with a mediocre record 3½ weeks into the season.New York's biggest offensive threat and the heart of its clubhouse went on the injured list for the third time in four seasons Sunday, a day after straining the oblique muscle on the left side of his abdomen while hitting a sixth-inning single against Kansas City."Especially tough times like this, when a lot of guys are beat up, I wanted to be out there in the trenches with the guys every single day," Judge said after Sunday's 7-6, 10-inning win over Kansas City .Manager Aaron Boone called it a "pretty significant strain in there" and would not estimate a return date. Judge broke his right wrist when hit by a pitch by the Royals' Jakob Junis last July 26, and while Boone originally projected a return in three weeks, Judge did not rejoin the Yankees until Sept. 14."There's no need to put a time, a clock on it, bec...

Thu Apr 1800:59Anderson spikes bat, gets drilled; Royals top Chisox in 10
CHICAGO (AP) — Fiercely energetic Tim Anderson spiked his bat to celebrate a home run and Kansas City's Brad Keller responded by drilling him with a fastball, setting off a benches-clearing fracas in the Royals' 4-3, 10-inning victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.Anderson tossed his bat toward the White Sox dugout following his two-run drive in the fourth inning. Keller hit him in the buttocks with his first pitch leading off the sixth.Anderson, the AL's leading hitter, was restrained by Royals catcher Martin Maldonado but kept jawing with Keller on the way to first base.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria and Royals bench coach Dale Sveum shoved each other, and the usually mild-mannered Renteria was particularly animated.There were four ejections — Anderson, Keller, Renteria and Sveum.Hunter Dozier led off the 10th with a tiebreaking homer against Nate Jones (0-1).

NEW YORK (AP) — Adam Ottavino took the mound, wearing a flannel uniform and a glove half the size of his regular leather.Up to the plate stepped the Babe Ruth, the Sultan of Swat himself. The Bambino hit five thunderous drives as the pitcher turned his head to watch the balls soar.Hey, Babe: Facing baseball's most famous hitter was not quite the breeze Ottavino envisioned."What a nightmare," the pitcher says, popping up in bed and breathing hard.Back in December, Ottavino told the MLB.com's Statcast podcast: "I would strike Babe Ruth out every time."A month later, the native New Yorker signed with a $27 million, three-year contract with the Yankees, who view Ruth as a deity. Within days, the team approached Ottavino about making a commercial in which he pitches to Ruth with catastrophic consequences."I thought it was a good idea, just to show that I can make fun of myself," the 33-year-old right-hander said.Brian Spector, senior executive producer of Yankees productions, developed th...

Tue Apr 219:38Yankees 3B Andujar optimistic he can return without surgery
NEW YORK (AP) — Miguel Andujar is hopeful he can avoid surgery and return to the New York Yankees' lineup this year.The third baseman has a small labrum tear in his right shoulder that landed him on the 10-day injured list Monday along with fellow slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who strained his left biceps. They joined a long list of Yankees regulars already sidelined just a few games into the season, and Andujar's status is perhaps the most uncertain."We're in the very early stages, so I think it's just got to play out over the next few days and then as he starts ramping back up, I think it'll become clear," manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday.The team will try treating Andujar's injury with physical therapy and a rehab program. If that doesn't work, he could require surgery that would "compromise his season," Boone acknowledged Monday night."It's tough," Andujar said through a translator. "But at the same time I'm optimistic because my shoulder is strong. The physical tests on my shoulder... [More]
