    And Loaisiga is shut down for four weeks with another arm issue, he may never be healthy.

    Cortes Jr is back for Andujar, even I'm confused about who is actually on the roster now. These are just today's moves:

    On the team: Aaron Hicks, Nestor Cortes Jr., Chance Adams

    Off the team: Jonathan Loaisiga, Miguel Andújar, Mike Tauchman

    Current roster:

    C: Sanchez
    1B: Voit
    2B: LeMahieu
    SS; Torres
    3B: Urshela
    LF: Gardner
    CF: Hicks (yay)
    RF: Maybin
    DH: Frazier

    bench: Romine, Estrada

    SP: Tanaka, German, Happ, CC, ???
    RP: Cortes, Cessa, Adams, Harvey, Holder, Green, Kahnle, Ottavino, Britton, Chapman

    Adams or Cortes will likely pitch a bunch tonight and get sent down for Mike Ford, so they can at least get back to 12 position players.

    Sounds like surgery decision on Andujar to be made by tomorrow EOD. Have to figure they’re leaning the surgery route given Urshela’s emergence and Didi’s potential return in the next month or so.

    If Stanton can ever return from the shoulder issue, the DH is probably spoken for.

    It’s amazing how Stanton’s injury was not big news when it happened, and even more amazing how the Yanks have played with both Stanton and Judge sidelined.

    Is there anything to be learned from the 16-6 run the Yankees have been on lately? They took two of three from Boston, Tampa and the Twins. Three contenders.

    Yup. Stanton situation is just weird. Hurt his bicep, healed, and then somehow hurt his shoulder. Hopefully he can return by early June. Yankees have done tremendous job holding it all together. This will be a juggernaut by July when everyone is back other than Severino.

    Houston is rolling and will be getting stud prospect reinforcements at some point in Alvarez and Whitley. Boston appears to be righting the ship. So, basically, we’re back to 2017/2018 and we’ll see who emerges in October.

    Except MIN has possibly bumped CLE, and the likely SPs in any wild card game will probably be far better than Ervin Santana and Liam Hendriks, the two guys NY has faced the last two seasons.

    The Yankees have acquired 1B/DH Kendrys Morales and cash considerations from Oakland in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. To make room on the 40-man roster, RHP Jonathan Loaisiga has been transferred to the 60-day IL.

    That seems to make it clear that even if Andujar doesn't decide to get the surgery, they are not counting on him for anything.

    Morales had lousy numbers for OAK so far this year, but pretty good underlying exit velocity numbers. He's a switch-hitter who hit 101 HRs in the four previous seasons, and this from Olney is interesting:

    "Teammates say Kendrys Morales is a tremendous resource of information on opposing pitchers -- studies film, shares useful stuff w teammates about how they're going to be pitched."

    And Greg Bird, too. But even Bird knows the last injury sealed his fate.

    Also that Loaisiga move takes him out of the rotation picture probably for the season, Severino and Montgomery due back before him as of now. NY is thin after the current 5 (including Paxton) without any of those, maybe Chance Adams or David Hale is next up.

    Disappointing on Loaisiga, he has incredible stuff, but he has never been able to stay healthy, that’s how NY got him in the first place. Maybe a bullpen weapon down the line or a trade chip...

    Had to do it. Yankees will be fine and perhaps even better off once Judge/Stanton return. Defense at 3B more important.

    Paxton probably back within the week (looking like no rehab game), Stanton starting rehab games Monday with Tampa, and Didi scheduled to play SS in an extended spring training game Monday.

    Stanton returns from rehab with an apparent calf injury. Boone says nothing serious, but they're stopping his rehab.
