Chase Headley back on Yankees' bench against Orioles

Chase Headley back on Yankees' bench against Orioles

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said moving CC Sabathia to Tuesday against the Twins is created to keep the lefty's right knee from taking the pounding of the Rogers Centre's turf later in the week. The Yankees beat the Orioles, 9-3, on Saturday afternoon.

Girardi added that Sonny Gray would start in place for Sabathia on Sunday.

The Yankees are three games behind AL East-leading Boston. Now, his next turn will be Friday at Toronto. From there the Yankees could start him September 27 and have him on five days rest for the wild-card tilt.

"They're a really good team", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Baltimore. Yes, is his [right] knee OK? Yes. "It won't change his amount of starts, but it will keep him off the turf".

Ynoa lasted 4 1/3 innings and was charged with three runs (two earned) on five hits.

Girardi said if he felt a need to make a change for the Twins series he could.

Girardi said that concern about Sabathia's troublesome, arthritic right knee on Toronto's artificial was exclusively the reason for the switch.

Rediscovering his stroke after a prolonged second-half slump, Judge had his second multihomer game in less than a week and is hitting.462 with 11 homers and 24 RBIs against the Orioles this season. The Yankees own an 11-6 advantage in the season series and it's because of an offense that has produced 141 runs so far.

David Tyree, Antonio Pierce, Jeff Feagles and Shaun O'Hara threw and kicked footballs as ceremonial first pitches as part of the Yankees honoring the Giants' 2007 Super Bowl XLII team before the game. Headley is hitting.364 (20-for-55) during the streak. NY recalled IF Miguel Andujar and RHP Jonathan Holder from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Further Pressure May Provoke 'Unpredictable' Response From North Korea
But the North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) had said the ballistic missile did not pose a threat to North America. At the White House, McMaster called on nations to aggressively enforce recent U.N. sanctions to increase economic pressure.

On June 28, Andujar appeared in one game for the Yanks and went 3-for-4 with a walk and four RBI in his major-league debut - a 12-3 road win over the White Sox - before he was sent back to the minors.

Miguel Andujar finally is getting a chance to build on the fantastic first impression he made.

"It's a attractive stadium".

They've allowed 31 homers in nine games in The Bronx - that's more than three a game - the most at any opposing ballpark this season by 22 homers. "There's a whole process in between, so that is what's hard is dealing with the ups and downs of injuries, really, but I feel like it makes you a better player and person".

It was the type of performance the Yankees have expected out of Luis Severino this season.

Francisco Lindor and Jay Bruce both played large roles in helping the Indians earn their 22nd straight win.

Girardi is in his 10th season and without a contract for next season.

Girardi said the Yankees hope to use Andujar at third base, and though there has been some concern that he could be a defensive liability, the Yankees believe he's made progress. I have been extremely fortunate to be here for this long and to have this opportunity from the Steinbrenner family and [general manager Brian] Cashman.
