Love Hicks but we have enough evidence that he is an injury prone player. Still plenty of time for him to make good on his contract but yea, not very reliable thus far in his Yankees career.

So, reports are that Stanton and Severino will rejoin the team early next week with Severino starting Tuesday.

My predictions for the Montgomery/Betances 40 man moves tomorrow are Tauchman and Holder to the 60 day IL, officially ending their seasons. Holder is because we have not heard word one about him in weeks and they need the spot.

Then on Tuesday, Hicks to the 60 day and Dull DFA for Severino and Stanton. They really should add Mike King too and let him get his toes wet in the bigs before adding him after the season, that could be Lyons or even Gearrin’s spot IMO.

"Edwin Encarnacion said that his oblique is “feeling better every day.” He believes that he will return to play before the end of the regular season and will be ready for the playoffs."

"Tauchman says he’s improving, no baseball activities yet. Just treatment."

Breyvic Valera DFAd for the 40 man spot with Severino back.

A bit surprising, he was just a midseason waiver pickup but he hit quite well in AAA (although he cooled off after a hot start), he's a switch-hitter, and he plays a ton of positions, but NY has a ton of middle infielder depth (Wade, Thairo, Kyle Holder) and maybe they're hoping no one claims him and they can re-sign him. I have to think someone will grab him though...

Toronto did grab Valera.

8 days left in the regular season, I will take a shot at the postseason roster. I am going to assume for the purposes of this that Encarnacion and Sanchez are back, German is suspended, and no one else gets hurt (please!).

Starting lineup:

LeMahieu 1B
Judge RF
Torres 2B
Stanton LF
Encarnacion DH
Sanchez C
Gregorius SS
Urshela 3B
Gardner CF

Bench: Romine, Voit, Wade, Maybin

SP: Paxton, Tanaka, Severino, Happ
RP: CC, Cessa, Loaisiga, Green, Ottavino, Kahnle, Britton, Chapman

Betances and German and Hicks and Tauchman all out makes this easier, don't think there's anyone deserving left off.

A very well put together team.

The bench has everything, power, speed and IF/OF defense.
