Why ‘run line’ could be important when it comes to the Yankees It’s becoming clear that Yankees backers are going to be looking at the “run line” on almost a daily basis through the rest of the 2019 season.

How Yankees have become one of deepest teams in MLB Aaron Boone sat Gary Sanchez and Gleyber Torres on Saturday, though the duo had become the first in franchise history to homer in three straight games together.

This was the CC Sabathia the Yankees needed to see CC Sabathia’s troubled right knee was no issue in his first start in 11 days.

Yankees have Diamondbacks starter on their radar While the Yankees are clearly looking to upgrade their rotation, there’s no guarantee they’ll add anyone — let alone a significant piece like San Francisco’s Madison Bumgarner or Cleveland’s Trevor Bauer, which is why they could also be interested in Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray.
