So let's do an update of where this team stands, current 25 man roster:

================

Sanchez
Voit
Torres
Didi
Urshela
Gardner
Hicks
Maybin
Encarnacion

bench: LeMahieu, Tauchman, Romine

Paxton
Tanaka
Happ
Sabathia

Cortes Jr.
Hale
Cessa
Green
Holder
Kahnle
Ottavino
Britton
Chapman

================

Stanton back on Tuesday will likely bump Tauchman to AAA, then Judge soon after will maybe bump a pitcher (please Cessa please Cessa please Cessa), allowing Maybin who has no options to stick around for now.

I think Cashman has more trades coming soon, he badly needs a reliable SP and needs to move some depth. The AAA team is brimming with guys who deserve big league jobs somewhere (Frazier, Estrada, Mike Ford, Logan Morrison, Tyler Wade has been hot lately).
You have to get LeMathieu in most days, don’t you? The guy’s had an amazing season and been extra hot lately.

Yep, that was a week ago, LeMahieu is the everyday leadoff hitter now even with everyone back, playing 3B mostly but also 2B when Didi or Gleyber sit and 1B occasionally (tonight).

Kendrys Morales, who was on the DL, is DFAd, which frees up a 40 man spot. Holder down, Tarpley up.

Stanton back to the IL with a PCL strain, reevaluated in 10 days. Tauchman replaces him, Estrada also added to the roster as the 26th man they're allowed in London, Higashioka and Adams also coming along as emergency replacements.

Who needs Stanton when DJ is hitting bombs every day?

It's true that they obviously don't think they need more offense currently as witnessed by leaving Clint Frazier and his .843 OPS in AAA in favor of Tauchman's much more reliable defense.

I guess if a London team ever happened teams would need to bring extra players.

Stanton out until August per Cashman. So, basically, just get healthy and ready for a playoff run and closer division race if needed.

Clint played CF last night in AAA, he will get a bunch of games in before NY is back in the US, so I think he has a chance if he plays well to flip with Tauchman after London.

DJ is 15-22 with 3 home runs. Regardless of whether I only know this because of fantasy, that’s scorching.

“Over his last 10 games, DJ LeMahieu is batting .537 (22 for 41) with 16 runs scored and 18 RBIs. LeMahieu is the first Yankees player since Mickey Mantle in May 1955 to have at least a .500 batting average, 15 runs and 15 RBIs over a 10-game span.”

Well, that .537 average is going to drop a little with today’s lackluster 3-6 performance. At least he was able to balance it out with a couple runs and RBI’s.

Who was the last lead off hitter to lead the league in rbis?

I can only see Blackmon has the leadoff rbi record with 103, so I’m guessing it’s never happened.

This assumption is correct, just to verify. If you go to 479th in RBI, it extends into a position for 511th, at 120.

At 103, and excluding the split season of 1981, Blackmon’s mark would only lead the NL as recently as 1920 with Rogers Hornsby, High Pockets Kelly at 94. In the Junior Circuit, the Bobby Veach’s 84 in 1918 was the last league leader under 103.

Of all the non-1981 players to have RBI leading seasons of sub 103, but past 1908 (for BRef game log purposes), none of them so much as batted lead off once in those respective seasons. The closest was Brooklyn’s Hi Myers, who in 1919 batted 2nd 7 times, lead the NL with 73 driven in.

FWIW, 53 of DJL's 61 RBIs are from the leadoff spot. He could maybe make a run at Blackmon's record, but it will be tough.

On the flipside, with EE on the roster and Judge and potentially Stanton back, there should be more opportunities because of the deeper lineup.

Many Yankee fans were shocked/irritated/idiotic when Tauchman got chosen over Clint to come up with Stanton out, Mike Axisa is still inexplicably bitching about it. They didn't care that Tauchman was a way way way better defender and better baserunner, they just saw Clint's admittedly superb bat. So it's interesting to check 2019 OPSs, the one area Clint is supposed to be the better option:

Frazier:

AAA (109 ABs): .853
MLB (191 ABs): .843

Tauchman:

AAA (95 ABs): .891
MLB (138 ABs): .863

This is Tauchman's line in 59 AB in the 9 spot. He doesn't do nearly as well batting 5-7.

.424 .493 .797 1.290

Tulo officially retired today, one less guy on NY's lengthy 60 day IL list.

Gardner to the IL and Tarpley recalled. Do we have a two-man bench?
Yeah, that's got to be a one day thing with Maybin likely back tomorrow. They really need to trade Cessa ASAP so that they have one more back of the bullpen spot to use to bring guys up and down, Cessa's lack of options is really hurting their flexibility.

Voit onto the IL with a sports hernia, they will decide in the next day or two if he needs surgery or not. If he has surgery, he will be out around six weeks.

Let him heal and cross your fingers that our cushion in the division holds up. Stanton, Sanchez, and now Voit. Really need EE and Judge to pick up the team.

Sanchez I think will be back pretty soon, he was running full speed on the bases just now.
