The Yankees just can’t catch a break.

They’ve got another injured player as James Paxton left Friday’s game in the Bronx after just three innings with soreness in his left knee. He allowed one unearned run on two hits and three walks while throwing 64 pitches. He’s scheduled for an MRI on Saturday.

Jonathan Holder came in to replace Paxton for the fourth inning.

If Paxton is out for a significant period of time, it would be a huge blow to a starting rotation already missing Luis Severino, and it would come at a time when the Yankees werestarting to get some good newson a few of their many injured stars.

Paxton was the Yankees’ prized offseason acquisition, getting him in a trade with Seattle while giving up a package that included top pitching prospectJustus Shieffield

The southpaw was supposed to help fortify the Yankees’ rotation and provide a strong one-two punch with Severino. But Severino was diagnosed with rotator cuff inflammation in spring training and then a lat injury which will keep him out until the summer.

The Yanks have CC SabathiaMasahiro TanakaJ.A. Happ and Domingo German in their rotation. They’ll have to find a way to patch things together without Paxton, whose absence would be a huge concern.

The Yankees kicked off their homestand on the right foot, as they collected a 6-3 win over the Twins on Friday night in the Bronx.>>Box score

Five takeaways from Friday’s game…

1) James Paxton had been coming along for the Yankees in his previous starts, but now New York will hope they didn’t lose him to the injury bug. After three innings, Paxton walked right down into the tunnel with what was revealed to be left knee soreness. He left to get an MRI on the knee to see the damage. He allowed one run on two hits with three walks and one strikeout.

It looks like the Yankees have a reinforcement coming off the IL, as Miguel Andujar toldSNY’s Andy Martinothat he will “probably” come off the list tomorrow. 

Andujar has been out since the opening series with the Orioles due to a partially torn labrum in his right shoulder. He has been rehabbing it in hopes that he wouldn’t have to undergo surgery, which would keep him out longer. His throwing and hitting programs were responding well, and he was able to play in a couple rehab games without experiencing any setbacks. 

However, that doesn’t mean surgery is entirely off the table. He told Martino that he’s not sure if it’s been ruled out, but manager Aaron Boone said he is “optimistic” the tear won’t need it. Andujar’s tests have all been positive.

The Yankees look to snap their two-game skid when they open a three-game series against the AL Central-leading Twins at 7:05 p.m. on Friday.

Yankees notes

The Yankees return to the Bronx after a successful nine-game road trip. They may not like the result of their short two-game stint in Arizona that led to two straight losses, but they ultimately come back to Yankee Stadium winning six of their nine games. 

But the challenge has only begun for the pinstripes. 

It was an easy schedule throughout April, as the Yankees played teams like the Orioles, Tigers, and White Sox who are not expected to compete for a playoff spot in September. But New York will now have to face three formidable teams over their next 10 games.

Dallas Keuchel still remains on the free agent market, and that could be the case throughout May as well. 

With Keuchel rejecting his $17.9 million qualifying offer with the Astros, he is now tied to draft compensation. Teams who are interested in signing the lefty starter would have to give up their highest draft pick after their first-rounder (if a team has more than one first-round pick, the top pick is exempt). 

According toMLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the Yankees are among those teams interested in Keuchel, but only following that Draft. He spoke on his radio.com podcast “Big Time Baseball” with Josh Lewin to explain what he has heard.

Six takeaways from Wednesday’s game…

1 )Masahiro Tanakalimited the scoring damage, but he was far from sharp in this game, lasting just four innings. Tanaka continually left off-speed pitches up in the zone and he was tagged as a consequence. His final line – 4 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 BB and 6 K – marks the third start in his last four in which he failed to generate a quality start. Tanaka’s ERA jumped to 3.92 after today’s performance.

Looking for some consistency and maybe even a spark from a vacant position on the diamond, the Yankees took a low-risk chance onLuke Voitin 2018 and the summer trade – basically another experiment – paid significant dividends.

There might have been some uncertainty at the outset of the 2019 season as to Voit’s future, but once again he is carrying the club. Voit’s amazing run to end the 2018 regular season was a surprise that came at the right time for the squad. Now, much more so than last season, Voit is beingreliedon to carry the load and he’s not disappointing.

CC Sabathia gets 3,000th K
00:01:06

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is the 17th player to reach 3,000 strikeouts. SNY’s Sweeny Murti believes this makes him a HOF lock.

Anthony McCarron, SNY.tv|Twitter|

Now thatCC Sabathiahas notched his 3,000th strikeout, it’ll be tempting to boil that milestone down to what it says about his Hall of Fame credentials. It’s a terrific boost, obviously, but Sabathia authored a marvelous, entertaining career long before he fannedJohn Ryan Murphy Wednesday night to hit that magic number.

So 3K strikeouts ought to be recognized as an occasion to appreciate what Sabathia has done in his 19 seasons, too, especially because he’s retiring at the end of the year. There will be debate about whether he belongs in Cooperstown, but there’s no denying that the ride has been something special.

With his 3,000th strikeout on Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks in Arizona, Sabathia became just the 17th pitcher ever to reach that level.

Sabathia struck out three batters in the second inning, although he allowed a home run and a single, but reached the milestone by getting former Yankee John Ryan Murphy to end the inning.

A month of the 2019 season has passed and free agentsDallas KeuchelandCraig Kimbrelare still on the market. And the longer this plays out, the more it could make sense for one or both of them to wait until after June 5 to sign.

Here’s why…

As free agents who rejected the $17.9 million qualifying offer from their respective teams, Keuchel (Red Sox) and Kimbrel (Astros) are both tied to draft pick compensation (a team’s highest first-round pick is exempt) in this year’s MLB Draft, which runs from June 3 to June 5.

SoGio Gonzalezis a Milwaukee Brewer, finally, and it appears thatDallas Keuchel‘s asking price would still have to drop considerably for either the Yankees or Mets to consider signing him.

Yet it’s a good bet that both local teams will be in the market for another starting pitcher come the July 31 trade deadline.

Six takeaways from Sunday’s game

1) Domingo German‘s final line — 6 IP, 5H, 4R, 1 BB and 4 K — doesn’t really tell how good he was for the most of this game. German cruised through his first five innings, allowing no runs on just one hit. German might have tired some in the sixth, as he was tagged for four runs on four hits. German (5-1) still got the win behind the Yankees’ offense and continues to uphold his part in the team’s rotation.

The Yankees have been putting Andujar throwing and hitting program with the hope that he didn’t need to undergo surgery on his partially torn labrum. He has been responding well to both programs, which is a good sign.

The Yankees got good news on Wednesday when it was revelaed thatGiancarlo Stanton‘s strained biceps had healed. But that good news was canceled out by the bad news that Stanton was dealing with a new shoulder injury.

According to SNY’s Andy Martino, the new shoulder injury is only expected to cost Stanton an additional week. 

Stanton, who received a cortisone shot in his shoulder and is resting for a few days, said on Wednesday that his return would be delayed due to feeling some “residual stuff” in his left shoulder, according to the New York Times’ James Wagner

The Yankees acquired outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Cleveland Indians on Thursday for cash considerations after they placed their fifth outfielder on the injured list.

The 32-year-old Maybin, whom the Yankees pursued at the trade deadline last year but lost out to the Mariners, is slashing .229/.397/.292 with no home runs and five RBIs in 13 games with Cleveland’s Triple-A affiliate this season. Last year, Maybin hit .249/.326/.336 with four home runs and 28 RBIs in 129 games with the Marlins and Mariners.

The Yankees officially placed outfielder Clint Frazier on the injured list with a partial tear in his left ankle, as he becomes the fifth Yankees outfielder to be placed on the IL through the first four weeks of the regular season.

Frazier suffered the injury when he rolled his ankle on a pickoff attempt in the 12th inning of Monday’s 14-inning win over the Los Angeles Angels. He stayed in the game but did not play on Tuesday or Wednesday. An MRI revealed the extent of the injury, which is expected to keep Frazier sidelined for 10-14 days, according to manager Aaron Boone.

The Yankees recalled RHP Joe Harvey to take his place on the active roster. They also optioned RHP Jonathan Loaisiga, who pitched three scoreless innings in Wednesday’s 6-5 win, to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. They have not announced a second corresponding move as of Thursday morning.

Another Yankee bites the dust, as Clint Frazier is headed to the Injured List with a partial tear in his left ankle, Aaron Boone announced after Wednesday’s game.

Frazier sat out the past two games after rolling his ankle in the series opener against the Angels. Boone initially said it was simply precautionary that he sat out Tuesday night, and that the team didn’t believe is was anything “too serious.”

Well, that isn’t the case now after Frazier got an MRI on his ankle on Wednesday. With the partial tear in the ankle, Boone says the team believes him to be out 10-14 days.

The Yankees were down from the start, but they battled their way back to a 6-5 win to beat the Angels and keep their win streak alive.>>Box score

Six takeaways from Wednesday’s game…

1) DJ LeMahieu came into this game going 2-for-his-last-32 at the plate. Make that 2-for-33 after a strikeout in his first at-bat on the night. But that all went away when he put the Yanks on the board in the top of the sixth with an RBI double. The next inning, he hit a clutch sac fly to make it a one-run game. But his biggest hit came in the top of the ninth when he fought off a fastball to right field to score Tyler Wade to give the Yankees the lead and eventual win.

The Yankees continue their West Coast tilt against the Angels on Wednesday in Anaheim at 10:07 p.m.

Yankees notes

The Yankees continue to stay hot despite their injury battles. They have now won five games straight after their 7-5 victory Tuesday night. …Luke Voit has been red hot at the plate with two home runs last night. He now has three in back-to-back games. …Mike Ford launched his first homer of his career, a bomb to right center field. …Chad Green was sent down to Triple-A before tonight’s game after putting up a four spot in his relief appearance on Tuesday. With Green’s ERA over 16 this season, the Yankees want him to figure things out in their farm system before returning. Stephen Tarpley was recalled.

The Yankees found some good and bad news in regards to the injured Giancarlo Stanton that manager Aaron Boone divulged to the media on Wednesday. 

The good news first is that Stanton’s left bicep that was strained has healed. But the bad news is that he won’t be returning after feeling some “residual stuff” in his left shoulder, according toNew York Times’ James Wagner

Supposedly, Stanton has dealt with shoulder “stuff” in the past, as Boone put it. In turn, the slugger received a cortisone shot in his shoulder and will continue to rest for a few days before the team assesses the situation.

The Yankees optioned struggling reliever Chad Green to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old right-hander, who excelled in 2017 and 2018 after transitioning from a starting role to the bullpen, has a 16.43 ERA in 7.2 inning so far this season.

He nearly cost the Yankees the game Tuesday night when he allowed four runs. In his previous outing he allowed three runs without recording an out.

The Yankees have been forced to make several call-ups this season, due to the 13 players currently on the IL. While the injured Yanks represent a virtual All-Star team, the team that is taking the field on a daily basis is made up of players not expected to be an integral part of the club.

Let’s rank some of those players based on their ability to continue delivering “next man up” production (potentially in increased roles) throughout the rest of the season…

No. 6 – Jonathan Loaisiga

Six takeaways from Monday’s game

1) Luke Voit continues to rake, especially in the first inning. For the second straight game and fourth time this season Voit homered in the first inning to give the Yankees a quick 1-0 lead. He homered again in the eighth inning to cap a 2-for-4 day at the plate and extend his hitting streak to 10 games and on-base streak to 35 games.

Heading into the offseason after their ALDS loss to the Red Sox, the Yankees had offseason goals to fortify their roster so that result didn’t occur yet again. Starting pitching was an obvious top-of-the-list priority, but there was also the prospect of adding All-Star Manny Machado to an already-stacked lineup that touted the likes of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton

But the Yankees never made that giant splash many expected GM Brian Cashman to make. He did trade with the Mariners for lefty James Paxton to be the team’s hopeful ace (he’s finally trending in that direction after his last two starts), but the Machado signing never came to fruition. In fact, the Yankees didn’t have too much interest in the young infielder. 

Instead, Cashman took a flyer on Troy Tulowitzki to fill in at shortstop while Didi Gregorius rehabbed his way back from Tommy John surgery. And even before that signing, the Yankees brought free agent DJ LeMahieu on board to be their versatile infielder through the season.

Red flags were raised after seeing Clint Frazier not in the lineup against the Angels on Tuesday night, but manager Aaron Boone assured the media that there was nothing “too serious,” perThe Athletic’s Lindsey Adler.

Frazier tweaked his left ankle last night in the Yankees’ 14-inning win in Anaheim, but he stayed in the game. Yankees fans will certainly hold their breath because they’ve heard the team sitting players for “precautionary” reasons. 

Boone, though, said he wouldn’t mind putting Frazier in if he needed to. He claimed he “wouldn’t hesitate” if he needed to come off the bench to pinch hit in a big spot.

Yankees notes

The Yankees enter Tuesday night winning six of their last seven games and are just 2.5 games behind the AL East-leading Rays. …Luke Voithas reached base in 33 consecutive games dating back to last year and is in the midst of a nine-game hitting streak, blasting his fifth home run on Monday night. … Thairo Estrada starts at second base in his first career MLB game. He had his first MLB at-bat on Sunday but is still seeking his first hit.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman went on Mike Francesa’s WFAN show Monday afternoon and gave updates on the team’s laundry list of injuries. Here’s a look at the latest on the injured Yankees stars:

Aaron Judge

The Yankees’ injury woes got worse when Judge suffered an oblique strain over the weekend. Cashman said the strain is “significant” and it doesn’t seem as if he’ll be back anytime soon. “We’re just gonna have to repackage and plug and play with what we’ve got,” Cashman said. “Our job is to find a way regardless of what circumstances (are.)”

The Yankees continue to bring in more reinforcements. 

The organization signed utility infielderBrad Milleron Monday to a minor-league contract, the team announced. 

Miller, 29, can play all four positions in the infield, as well as some outfield, as the injury-plagued Yankees try to stock up their minor-league depth, having called up every position player on the 40-man roster.
