LOAISIGA IS COMING BACK! BIG CHANGES ARE COMING TOO!


by: Jeana Bellezza-Ochoa Bleeding Yankee Blue



Great news for the last two series of the regular season....Jonathan Loaisiga and Jameson Taillon could be back as soon as TOMORROW. Maybe. That's not just big, it's huge!


The Yankees have missed Loaisiga, their most reliable bullpen piece since September 3rd, but he has been throwing recently. He threw a bullpen on Friday and another one was planned yesterday so if all goes well we could see him back on the mound shortly, NJ.com has the details HERE. Everyone cross your fingers!


This is some of the best news we could get. The Yankees just won their last series against the Red Sox but are still fighting for a Wild Card and Loaisiga could be the extra spark to help us get there. Losing Loaisiga has been tough and the Yankees have had to get creative without him and honestly it sucked.


So getting Loaisiga back is good news or all of us, but that means changes coming also. The best part about September is expanded rosters, but with regulars returning the Yankees will still need to send people down to the minors or let them go. But who?

The most obvious choice would have to be Andrew Heaney for reasons that don't need a lot of explanation. He's been awful and honestly, I never liked that Brian Cashman got him in the first place. The Yankees hoped he could help get them over the hump but he's been a liability and not a help. He hasn't pitched since September 18th when he gave up three runs in three innings. Heaney is a free agent at the end of the season and he has no minor league options remaining so the Yankees can't just send him down. Not that this should be an option even if he had options...


've been pretty tough on Heaney since he came to the Yankees. The Yankees took a leap of faith and it just didn't work out. There's no real role for Heaney and he hasn't earned one. It just makes sense to cut the cord. The Yankees have better options. 

So no hard feeling, Heaney but this is where you should be released. It's good news to get some reinforcements back but good news for them means bad news for Heaney and I don't feel bad about that because he didn't help the Yankees win before....so it probably won't help down the stretch.

NY Post | Greg Joyce: Aaron Judge got more than his fair share of chances to deliver a big hit in the eighth inning of Sunday night’s game against the Red Sox, and he wound up coming through. There was a bit of a scare in the aftermath of Judge’s two-run double though — he jammed his pinky on the bag sliding into second and dislocated the finger. The training staff had to rush out and help Judge get the bone back in, but he stayed in the game. Hopefully, there won’t be any lasting effects from the brief incident, but even if there are, Judge claims that he doesn’t “really need it to hit,” so ... cool?


ESPN | Marly Rivera: After getting a day off on Saturday with what was described as a hip/groin issue, DJ LeMahieu was back in the lineup on Sunday. He had a strong performance, too — he made several dazzling plays at third base, and had an RBI single to boot. (The only blemish was his dropped popup, which fortunately didn’t end up mattering.) LeMahieu didn’t have much to say about the injury during pre-game interviews, only noting that the team doctors were reviewing his MRI at the moment and that the MRI “showed like nothing there.” LeMahieu clearly isn’t concerned about it, and said that he’d prefer to look at it once the season was over.


NJ.com | Randy Miller: Jameson Taillon has been sidelined this month with a partially torn tendon in his ankle, but he’s finally ready to return at the most critical point of the Yankees’ season. The Yankees plan to activate Taillon for Tuesday’s matchup against the Blue Jays, giving them room to bump back Corey Kluber while keeping Gerrit Cole lined up to be ready for the season finale or the Wild Card Game, depending on circumstances. Jonathan Loáisiga is nearing a return as well, and a decision on his status could be made as early as today.


SNY | Anthony McCarron: The Yankees showed some fight in their victory Sunday, rebounding well from a disastrous fumbling of their lead just an inning prior. It’s a testament to their ability to persevere when they’re on one of their hot streaks — something that goes right out the window when they’re on their subsequent cold streaks — and it’s something that can give them an advantage in the postseason. No team grinds out nail-biting wins like these Yankees, and at the end of the day the win is what matters most of all.

New York Yankees: 4 takeaways from “Who’s your daddy” sweep of the Red Sox


by: William Parlee Empire Sports Media


The New York Yankees, last night game at Fenway Park, looking to sweep the rival Red Sox as they looked for the home-field


The New York Yankees, entered last night’s game at Fenway Park, looking to sweep the rival Red Sox as they looked for the home-field advantage in the wild-card race. The age-old rivalry was in full force as they looked to shame their rivals with a sweep this late in the season and knock them out of the number one spot in the wild card. In that effort, they sent Jordan Montgomery to the mound at Fenway to face the supposed ace, Eduardo Rodriguez. At the end of the night, the Yankees had achieved their goal. The Yankees won 6-3.


“Monty’ did what he needed to do


Yankee pitcher Jordan Montgomery who has suffered from a lack of run support all season, continued that trend last night. He didn’t have the luxury that Cortes Jr. had Thursday night when the Yankees scored three runs in the first inning. He got no run support through his first four innings of work. Finally, he got some in the fifth. Nevertheless, Montgomery did his job holding the Red Sox to just one run.


Following Montgomery, the amazing Clay Holmes came in and pitched a clean sixth, striking out the side in order. Joely Rodriguez fumbled in his outing, being completely wild and giving up two runs. Chad Green pitched 1.2 scoreless innings. Aroldis Chapman closed out the game with this not-so-familiar dominance.


Stanton/Judge led the Yankees to sweep


Last night in the top of the eighth inning Aaron Judge hit a double that put the Yankees ahead of the Red Sox. After the Yankees’ best defenders dropped two balls and Tyler Wade was caught stealing, LeMahieu walked. Anthony Rizzo doubled for the Yankees extra-base hit, with LeMahieu moving to third. Aaron Judge faced the new Red Sox pitcher Adam Ottavino with two on and one out and doubled, scoring two runs for the Yankees, taking the lead once again.


Giancarlo Stanton crushed another home run over the green monster in the eighth, driving in Judge for another two runs in another highlight of the night. Stanton joined Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, and Micky Mantle as the only Yankees to hit 3 home runs in one three-game series at Fenway Park. For Stanton, that was joining baseball Royalty. Stanton has been white-hot since August 3rd with a .289 average and hitting 18 home runs.


Red Sox shamed by Yankees late-season run


The Boston Red Sox must have been scratching their heads at the end of last night’s shame game outcome. The Yankees shamed the Red Sox in their last meeting at their own home field. The Yankees pulled out an eighth-inning win in the final game of the series for the sweep. However, the Red Sox still has the bragging rights for taking the season from the Yankees.


To add to the humiliation, In this three-game series, Giancarlo Stanton acted like a one-person team as he drove in 11 Yankee runs all by himself. The Red Sox in the three-game series only scored 9 runs total.


Yankees own the #1 wild card berth


With the win, last night the New York Yankees now own the number one berth in the wild card race knocking the Red Sox out by one run in the loss column. But the fact of the matter is that the Yankees can’t over celebrate that feat; they have a lot of work to do to hold on to it. The Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays, who are just one game behind, have an elementary schedule in the last week of the season; the Yankee have the most challenging schedule.

Yankees activate Jameson Taillon, option Albert Abreu


by: Andrew Mearns SB Nation: Pinstripe Alley


The righty starter is set to return on Tuesday in Toronto.


Fresh off a sweep of the Red Sox at Fenway Park that extended their winning streak to six games, the Wild-Card leading Yankees are enjoying their final off-day of the regular season today. There were still some behind-the-scenes logistics to work out ahead of the upcoming series against the Blue Jays though, and they took care of that shortly after noon on Monday.


Jameson Taillon is activated and now back with the Yankees. The 29-year-old right-hander has been on the injured list since September 9th with a partial tear of a tendon in his right ankle. Apparently, the injury sounded a lot worse than it actually was because Taillon was able to recover in time to make a rehab start at Triple-A Scranton on September 22nd, and now, he’s set to take the mound for the opener of the key three-game set in Toronto. To make room on the roster, reliever Albert Abreu was optioned to Triple-A; the availability of superior relievers had diminished his playing time and he also pitched poorly during his last time out against Cleveland on September 18th.


Taillon’s season has been a classic bell curve distribution, as it took him awhile to get going in the first couple months, but he really hit his stride around midseason. He was the AL Pitcher of the Month in July and essentially the de facto ace for a couple weeks in early August while Gerrit Cole and Jordan Montgomery recovered from bouts with COVID-19. Taillon’s last four starts in August were pretty poor though, as he seemed to be running out of gas, though he rebounded with seven innings of three-run ball on September 6th against this same Blue Jays team before hitting the IL.


On the year, Taillon has a 4.41 ERA, 4.49 FIP, and 1.8 fWAR in 27 starts (138.2 innings).


The Yankees’ likely rotation for the remainder of the season now seems to be all but set:


9/28 vs. Toronto: Jameson Taillon
9/29 vs. Toronto: Gerrit Cole
9/30 vs. Toronto: Corey Kluber


10/1 vs. Tampa Bay: Néstor Cortes Jr.
10/2 vs. Tampa Bay: Jordan Montgomery
10/3 vs. Tampa Bay: Jameson Taillon/Gerrit Cole


The only question seems to be Game 162, the regular-season finale. If Taillon looks fine, then he could face the Rays on normal rest. However, if Game 162 turns into a win-or-go-home scenario, then the Yankees are going to be understandably tempted to use his buddy Cole on three days’ rest, much as they did last year in the decisive Game 5 of the ALDS (also against Tampa). It might cost them having Cole available to them in a tiebreaker or the AL Wild Card Game, but, well, they have to get there first and even if Taillon shoves tomorrow night, I still trust Cole more.


Fingers crossed that the best-case scenario comes to pass and the Yankees find a way to clinch a playoff spot before Sunday. It’ll be a tough road against the Blue Jays and Rays, but as this team has proved, when the players are hot, they can beat anyone.

Michael King may have found his niche as a reliever


King’s changes in short relief have been quite beneficial.


Right-handed pitcher Michael King has had an up-and-down season for New York. He made the team out of spring training and his early returns were excellent, as he gave up zero earned runs in April. But in May and June, his ERA was above 5.00, and due to a weird injury, he hit the injured list in early July with a finger contusion. It looked like it could possibly be another lost year for King, especially from a development standpoint.


However, upon returning to the team healthy and exclusively as a reliever on September 10th, King has looked absolutely dominant. Season-long, the splits are stark — as a starter, he’s recorded a 5.47 ERA with 20 strikeouts in 20.4 innings; as a reliever, his ERA is 1.57, with 39 strikeouts in 34.1 innings. His hard-hit ball percentage as a starter was 37.2 percent; as a reliever, it’s 30.4 percent.


King would be far from the first baseball player to come up as a starting pitcher and get moved to the bullpen because his pitches play much better there. In particular, his average fastball and sinker velocity have definitely risen since returning earlier this month, and he’s now hitting 96 and 97 as opposed to 93 and 94. 


The number of quality arms in the ‘pen seems to be expanding, and King could very well be called upon to record some key outs in middle relief. Further, if the right-hander can keep this success up, he could even be yet another late-inning option capable of going multiple innings for manager Aaron Boone.


And while former starters Luis Severino and Domingo Germán are currently with King in that role, both of them are almost certain to return to the starting rotation next season. King, on the other hand, looks like he could potentially be better served by staying in the bullpen.

New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays: Series Preview


by: Matt Ferenchick SB Nation: Pinstripe Alley12m


A massive series with giant implications starts tonight in Toronto.


Over the weekend, the Yankees played maybe the most important series of the season, and it went quite well. They swept the series against the Red Sox thanks to two come from behind wins and two massive home runs from Giancarlo Stanton. Thanks to all that, the Yankees now not only have a lead for a Wild Card spot, but are a game up for the first Wild Card.


Next up is another series that you could easily describe as the most important of the season.


For the first time this year, the Yankees are headed north of the border to play the Blue Jays in Toronto. The Yankees come into this set two up on Toronto and can put one foot in the playoff door with a series win, and could clinch a spot with a sweep and some other results going in their favor. It’s going to be a tough test, though. Just a couple weeks ago, the Yankees were swept at the hands of the Blue Jays, fully dragging them back into the playoff race after the cushion the Yankees’ 13-game win streak created evaporated. The other side of a series win is a series loss that would create an insanely tight race and a very nervy final weekend.


Before things get going tonight, let’s take a look at the pitching matchups we’ll see over the next couple days.


Tuesday: Jameson Taillon vs. Hyun Jin Ryu (7:07 pm ET)


The series opener will also mark the return of Taillon, who was activated from the injured list on Monday. Taillon made his last appearance on September 6th, hitting the IL a couple days after that with a partially torn tendon in his right ankle. He made a rehab start in Triple-A back on the 22nd, allowing two runs on four hits in three innings. You would have to imagine that he wouldn’t have the longest leash considering his time off and the fact that this is a massive game for the Yankees.


Ryu hasn’t been remotely as good as his past couple seasons this year, but you wouldn’t know that if you only watched his games against the Yankees. In his four previous starts against them this year, he’s allowed six runs in 24 innings. However, the most recent of those is pretty much the lone shining light in his last month and change. Even including his seven shutout innings in the Bronx on September 6th, his ERA is over 10 since August 26th.


Wednesday: Gerrit Cole vs. José Berríos (7:07 pm ET)


He won’t be going head-to-head against his likely competition for the AL Cy Young, but Cole will get a chance to put down a marker this week. He bounced back from a bad outing against Cleveland with a good, not great, but important outing against the Red Sox.


Berríos has been very solid since going to Toronto at the trade deadline, and that includes 6.2 innings of two-run ball against the Yankees on September 9th. That game makes up part of a stretch since August 29th, during which he has a 2.70 ERA and has struck out 46 batters in 40 innings.


Thursday: Corey Kluber vs. Robbie Ray (7:07 pm ET)


After putting up his best start since returning on the 17th, Kluber was less than stellar against the Texas team he no-hit in May when he faced them on the 22nd. Thanks to Taillon’s return and a general reshuffling as the Yankees head into the final week and potentially the playoffs, he’s going have had basically a week of rest going into this one.


Cole’s opposite in the Cy Young race, Ray, will be going for Toronto in the series finale. As much as the teams play each other, Ray has only faced the Yankees twice this season, and neither start was great. The Yankees got him for a combined six earned runs in 9.2 innings with only eight strikeouts. The second of those came on May 27th, and most of Ray’s Cy case has been made in the months following. Since that second game against the Yankees in 22 starts, Ray has a 2.25 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and is striking out over 12 hitters per nine innings.

Jameson Taillon Capable of Full Workload Upon Return to Yankees


by: Gary Phillips Sports Illustrated: Inside The Pinstripes


Returning from the injured list, Taillon will take the ball in Game 1 of a huge series against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.


Jameson Taillon will not be limited when he returns to the mound on Tuesday.


The Yankees activated the right-hander on Monday, optioning Albert Abreu to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in a corresponding move. Taillon will start New York’s series-opener in Toronto. The 29-year-old has not pitched in the majors since Sept. 6 due to a partially torn tendon in his right ankle.


Aaron Boone said Sunday that he expects Taillon to return without restrictions. The Yankees bullpen will be rested following an off day and Boone doesn’t anticipate Taillon approaching 100 pitches, but “he should be able to get close to a full workload.”


Taillon squeezed one rehab start in before being activated, throwing three innings and 51 pitches for the RailRiders on Sept. 22. He allowed two earned runs and struck out two.


Taillon, who did not pitch in 2020 and for most of 2019 thanks to Tommy John surgery, went through some ups and downs before hurting his ankle. He had a 5.74 ERA through his first 12 starts, a sign of rust after missing so much time over the last two seasons. His next 12 outings were mostly dominant, though. He recorded a 2.57 ERA over that stretch.


Taillon made an additional three starts before the injury, allowing 14 runs over 15.1 innings.


With less than a week left in the regular season, the Yankees hope they’re getting midseason Taillon back with another crucial series about to begin. The Jays are trailing the Red Sox by a game in the AL wild card race, and the Yankees hold a one-game lead on the top wild card spot.


The Yanks are 6-10 against Toronto this season, and the Jays swept the Yankees over four games in the Bronx at the start of the month. The Blue Jays were the last team Taillon faced; he threw seven innings of three-run ball.


Now he’ll battle the Jays again with postseason implications hanging in the balance.


“I feel ready for it. I was able to throw some really aggressive bullpens. I got a lot out of the rehab start,” Taillon said. “The whole time I’ve been rehabbing, I’ve had these dates targeted and I understood that every game, no matter who it was against, down the stretch was gonna be huge. So I’ve already kind of had that on my mind for the past couple of weeks.”

Boston.com | Hayden Bird: During Sunday’s 6-3 Yankees win over the Red Sox, home plate umpire Joe West made a call that later became a pivotal moment of the game. With Aaron Judge at the plate in a 1-2 count, Judge foul-tipped the ball into Red Sox catcher Christian Vázquez’s mitt. Then, while transferring the ball from his glove to his throwing hand, Vázquez dropped the ball. West’s determination that Red Sox catcher Christian Vázquez had dropped the foul tip allowed Aaron Judge to extend his at-bat, and Judge took advantage of his luck by knocking in a pair of runs.


Vázquez later said he wanted his team to challenge the call, but MLB rules don’t consider foul tips and catch/no-catch situations to be reviewable. West’s controversial call, in turn, had a huge impact on the outcome of the game.


SI.com | Gary Phillips: It may have taken a few years, but Yankees fans are finally warming up to Giancarlo Stanton, and Stanton’s teammates are thrilled that the guy is getting his due. Stanton was booed in his first home game in pinstripes and there have been some moments of jeering at Yankee Stadium this year, too. Now, fans have embraced the slugger. His teammates have enjoyed watching him come through in high-leverage situations and his confident style when talking to the media has been praised, as well.


NJ Advance Media | Randy Miller: Right-hander Jameson Taillon was activated from the injured list during Monday’s off day and will start on the mound for the Yankees tonight in Toronto. Taillon skipped his last three starts due to a partially torn ankle tendon. He’s faced the Blue Jays twice this season and was the losing pitcher in both starts.


Taillon’s performance tonight will be telling, as he has had an up-and-down year, but had been thriving most recently before his injury. To make room for Taillon on the 28-man roster, the Yankees optioned reliever Albert Abreu to Triple-A Scranton. The move surprised those who thought reliever Andrew Heaney, and not Abreu, would be bumped off the roster (though another roster move likely soon awaits with the eventual return of Jonathan Loáisiga).


New York Post | Greg Joyce: Giancarlo Stanton played a little too rough with Gleyber Torres on Sunday night. In the eighth inning, Torres took a break from his at-bat to have his neck examined by a trainer, and it turned out that his discomfort was caused by Stanton celebrating his two-run home run by smacking Gleyber on the helmet. Torres then felt his neck flare up on a swing-and-miss a few minutes later. It seems like it was a false alarm, as Gleyber seemed OK to play the rest of the game.

Yankees feel like different team for critical Blue Jays rematch


by: Dan Martin New York Post


The first part of the Yankees’ agenda heading into their critical nine-game stretch that will define their season was to deal with the Red Sox.


TORONTO — The first part of the Yankees’ agenda heading into their critical nine-game stretch that will define their season was to deal with the Red Sox.


Now, fresh off their sweep at Fenway Park, they’ll head to Rogers Centre for the first time in more than two years to try to do the same to the Blue Jays as the teams battle — along with the Red Sox — for the two AL wild-card spots. After being on the outside looking in at times last week, the Yankees will enter Tuesday’s game against the Blue Jays — the Yankees’ first in Toronto since September 2019 due to COVID restrictions that limited travel to Canada — with a one-game lead over the Red Sox atop the AL wild-card standings and two games up on the Blue Jays.


“I think it’s gonna be another playoff atmosphere,’’ Aaron Judge said. “They took it to us back in New York and are fighting just like us for that playoff spot.”


Judge was putting it mildly when describing what the Blue Jays did to the Yankees this month in The Bronx.


Toronto clobbered the Yankees in four straight games, outscoring the Yankees 25-8 and never trailing for even a single inning.


The Yankees wound up losing seven of eight to put their postseason hopes in jeopardy, but they’ve since rebounded — while Toronto has cooled off.


Giancarlo Stanton believes the Yankees are battle-tested and ready for this stretch run.


“We’ve had a lot of crushing losses and we’ve been through a lot of what we need to to overcome times like these,’’ Stanton said. “[The season] is very much a learning curve. We can use it to our advantage, even the bad parts. Now we need to keep rolling the next two series. … We know we’ve underperformed at times and not played to capabilities at times. There’s not much time left to have that roller-coaster [ride]. It’s go-time.”


It’s been go-time for a while for the Yankees, who helped themselves by sweeping Boston to extend their winning streak to six games. They also got some assistance from Minnesota, which split a four-game series with Toronto over the weekend.


The Yankees, though, would be wise to build up their lead even more, since they finish the regular season against the first-place Rays in The Bronx.


Even with the Rays having already clinched the division, they’re always a dangerous matchup for the Yankees.


And Toronto finishes up against the cellar-dwelling Orioles.



As for the Red Sox, they also have a series with Baltimore, followed by one with the Nationals — and the Yankees can’t count on getting assistance from either of those also-rans.


But the Yankees have insisted throughout this final run that they aren’t looking for help and remain confident they can take care of business on their own.


They proved to be up to the task in Boston, with a convincing win on Friday and consecutive comeback wins on Saturday and Sunday to put themselves in position to not just make the wild-card game, but to host it.


They can further cement that this week in Toronto, where the Blue Jays are expected to play in front of their largest crowds of the season because of eased COVID restrictions that will allow for increased capacity at Rogers Centre.


“It’s going to be rocking,’’ Brett Gardner said.

About Last Night: Yankees 7, Blue Jays 2


by: Derek McAdam Start Spreading the News


The Yankees picked up their 7th straight win last night against Toronto. Here’s what happened in case you missed it.


About Last Night: The Yankees won their 7th game in a row after defeating the Toronto Blue Jays last night by a score of 7-2. They improved to 90-67 with their victory in hopes of sealing a Wild Card spot.


Quick Stats: Aaron Judge- 2-for-2, 2 BB, 2. RBI. Bullpen: 6.2 innings, 2 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K


Big Story: The Blue Jays did not take long to get onto the board, as Bo Bichette singled in George Springer to take a 1-0 lead. Judge tied the game in the top of the 3rd with a solo home run, his 37th of the season. In his first game off the IL, Jameson Taillon managed to only get seven outs before being taken out of the game with an injury to his already-injured ankle. The Blue Jays would regain the lead in the 4th with a Corey Dickerson RBI double to make the score 2-1. In the top of the 5th, Anthony Rizzo’s RBI single tied the game at 2-2, which was followed by Judge’s sacrifice fly to give the Yankees a 3-2 lead. Giancarlo Stanton would blow the game open with a three-run home run in the 7th to give New York a 6-2 lead, his 35th home run of the season. Gio Urshela added an extra insurance run in the 9th with his 14th home run of the season, extending the Yankees’ lead to 7-2.


Player of the Game: Judge reached base four times with two walks and two hits, but had five very productive at-bats. He takes home the crown.


Notable Performances: Stanton delivered with a big home run in the 7th, which gives him the honorable mention. The bullpen also managed to allow only one run over 6.2 innings of work.


Better to Forget: Joey Gallo went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts. It was not a great night for him, whatsoever.


My Take: Well, the Yankees continue to play good ball. There is no question that they need to win these games since they are in full control of whether or not they make the playoffs. But they also continue to get help from Judge and Stanton, who both seem to be unstoppable at this point. When both get hot, the Yankees seem unstoppable, and there isn’t another pair of Yankees that can say the same. The best thing that the Yankees can do is continue to win. They need to rely on their own play and not other Wild Card contenders for a good spot.


What’s Next: The Yankees will take on the Blue Jays tonight at 7:07 p.m. EST at Rogers Centre for the second game of the series. Jose Berrios is set to start for the Blue Jays while it is not yet determined if Gerrit Cole or Corey Kluber will start for the Yankees.
