Didi Gregorius underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday on his right elbow.

The Yankees announced last week that Gregorius would require the reconstructive elbow procedure, so this isn't breaking news. The hope is the 28-year-old shortstop will be able to return around the middle of the 2019 season, probably just before the All-Star break. He put up a career-high .829 OPS and 27 home runs in 134 games this summer with New York, also adding 86 RBI, 10 stolen bases, and 89 runs scored.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman indicated Friday that trading Sonny Gray this offseason would be best for both parties.

It hasn't worked out for Gray with the Yankees, as he finished with a 4.90 ERA over 30 appearances -- 23 starts -- in pinstripes this season. He's arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter and could make for a good buy-low option for some team. Gray held a 3.55 ERA across 27 starts in 2017.

CC Sabathia had surgery on his right knee Friday.

It's the same procedure that he had last winter as continues to deal with a chronic knee problem. Sabathia should be ready to roll by the time spring training comes around and the 38-year-old has already said that he plans to continue pitching next season. The left-hander would prefer to return to the Yankees but is open to pitching elsewhere.

Didi Gregorius will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow after an MRI revealed a ulnar collateral ligament tear.

Yikes. Gregorius evidently injured his elbow on a throw during Game 1 the ALDS against the Red Sox but gutted through the ailment for the rest of the series. Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Friday that he expects Gregorius to be able to play the "bulk" of next season, but obviously he's facing a long rehab. Gleyber Torres could slide over to shortstop while Gregorius is out, but the Yanks will also weigh options from outside the organization.

When asked Friday whether Luke Voit will be the Yankees' first baseman going into spring training, manager Aaron Boone said, "he grabbed that job, there’s no question about it."

It's what you'd expect him to say at this point after Voit surprised everyone with a .333/.405/.689 batting line and 14 home runs over 39 regular season games for the Bombers. However, while it's certainly possible Voit is the Yankees' Opening Day first baseman in 2019, a lot can happen between now and then and it wouldn't be a surprise to see the club seek an upgrade at the position. At the very least, Voit certainly has a clear edge over Greg Bird at the moment.

Giancarlo Stanton went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the Yankees' ALDS Game 4 loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Stanton represented the tying run with two men on and zero outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, but he flailed at a Craig Kimbrel slider to finish off an ugly at-bat and heard boos from the Yankee Stadium crowd as he walked back to the dugout. The 28-year-old slugger launched a monstrous solo home run in the AL Wild Card Game and he had hits in the first three games of the ALDS, but his first year in the Bronx ultimately came to a disappointing end.
Oct 9 - 11:48 PM

CC Sabathia allowed three earned runs over three innings as the Yankees fell to the Red Sox in Game 4 of the ALDS on Tuesday.

Sabathia successfully navigated through a two-out jam in the first inning and he pitched well in the second, but the wheels fell off for the big left-hander in the top of the third, as he hit Andrew Benintendi with a pitch to open the frame and then served up two singles, a double, and a run-scoring sacrifice fly (not in that exact order). This might have been the final outing in a Yankees uniform for Sabathia, who is due to become a free agent in early November. He turns 39 years old next July.
Oct 9 - 11:39 PM

J.A. Happ will be available out of the Yankees' bullpen in Game 4 of the ALDS on Tuesday against the Red Sox.

It's all-hands-on deck for New York in this potential elimination game. Happ struggled mightily in his Game 1 start in Boston, allowing five earned runs over two-plus innings. He threw just 44 pitches.
Oct 9 - 4:44 PM

Aaron Hicks (hamstring) has returned to the Yankees' lineup for Game 4 of the ALDS against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Hicks missed two straight games after hurting his hamstring in Game 1, but he is back in the leadoff spot with the Yankees facing elimination. Andrew McCutchen is on the bench, with Brett Gardner in left field and batting ninth against right-hander Rick Porcello.
Oct 9 - 3:53 PM

Miguel Andujar is not in the Yankees' lineup for Game 4 of the ALDS on Tuesday night against the Red Sox.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone wants to go with the better defender, Neil Walker, at third base with CC Sabathia on the hill and the team facing elimination. Aaron Hicks is also back in action. The full lineup for New York: Hicks CF, Aaron Judge RF, Didi Gregorius SS, Giancarlo Stanton DH, Luke Voit 1B, Walker 3B, Gary Sanchez C, Gleyber Torres 2B, Brett Gardner LF.
Oct 9 - 3:50 PM

Luis Severino was charged with six runs over just three-plus innings in Monday’s loss to the Red Sox.

Severino didn’t look like himself from the jump in this one, as his velocity was down a tick and the Red Sox had little trouble squaring him up. He surrendered seven hits and two walks and was pulled in the fourth with no outs after yielding a pair of singles and a walk. Lance Lynn replaced him and let all three inherited runners score on a walk and a bases-clearing double by Andrew Benintendi. The Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the hill Tuesday as they try to stave off elimination.
Oct 8 - 11:57 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 0-for-4 at the plate Monday and is now 2-for-17 so far during the postseason.

He wasn't alone in this one, as the Yankees managed just five singles and one run in an embarrassing 16-1 loss to the arch rivals. Perhaps manager Aaron Boone will consider Aaron Hicks (hamstring) at the top of the lineup if he's able to return to action in Game 4 on Tuesday.
Oct 8 - 11:35 PM

Aaron Hicks (hamstring) remained out of the Yankees' lineup for Monday's ALDS Game 3 versus the Red Sox.

Hicks tested out his left hamstring pregame again and isn't quite ready to return to the lineup yet. However, he's available off the bench and manager Aaron Boone said he feels like the outfielder is "in a pretty good spot," so it sounds like there's a good chance he'll be back in there for Game 4. The Yankees' full lineup looks like this: Andrew McCutchen LF, Aaron Judge RF, Luke Voit 1B, Giancarlo Stanton DH, Did Gregorius SS, Gary Sanchez C, Miguel Andujar 3B, Gleyber Torres 2B, Gardner CF.
Oct 8 - 4:16 PM

Aaron Hicks (hamstring) said Sunday that he's ready to return for Game 3 of the ALCS on Monday.

Hicks said out the second game of the series after sustaining a hamstring injury during Game 1. The MRI on his hamstring came back clean though, and it sounds like Hicks will be ready to go Monday's critical Game 3. If he can't, Brett Gardner would likely get another start in center field.
Oct 7 - 5:02 PM

Yankees' manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that he's "pretty locked in" to starting CC Sabathia in Game 4 of the ALDS against the Red Sox.

Luis Severino will get the ball in a critical Game 3 on Monday. The start will be Sabathia's 18th career postseason start for the Yankees and his 23rd postseason start overall. The 38 year-old hurler was 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in three starts against the Red Sox during the regular season.
