Shane Greene surrendered four runs in 5 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Rangers.

In a way, the outing was kind of impressive: Greene pitched around three of his own errors, plus one from Brian Roberts. The Yankees committed five errors in all in the game, without ever allowing an unearned run. Greene gave up five hits, walked one and struck out five in his first loss in three major league starts.

Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-4 and hit his eighth homer Monday versus the Rangers.

This is more along the lines of what Ellsbury owners were hoping for; he's hit .304 with four homers, 12 RBI and five steals in 16 games this month.

Mark Teixeira will be sidelined for the next 3-4 days because of a mild lower lat strain.

The Yankees are optimistic that the first baseman will not require a disabled list stint. Teixeira has tallied 17 home runs and 48 RBI in 76 games this season but has struggled to stay healthy for extended periods.

Michael Pineda (shoulder) is scheduled to throw two live sessions of batting practice this week.

If those go well, he will be cleared for simulated action. And then comes a minor league rehab assignment. The right-hander could be an option for the Yankees' rotation by mid-August if all continues to go well. Pineda has been sidelined since April with a shoulder issue.

Brian McCann hit a walkoff RBI single in the Yankees' 3-2 win over the Reds on Sunday afternoon.

It was a pop-up behind first base that the Cincinnati defense let drop. McCann was 2-for-5 on the day. He's still batting just .242/.294/.377 in his first season with the Yankees, but there have been signs of life lately. The Yankees swept the Reds in three games.
Jul 20 - 4:53 PM

Hiroki Kuroda held the Reds to one (unearned) run over 6 2/3 innings Sunday in a Yankees victory.

Kuroda was left with a no-decision because the Yankees didn't win it until the bottom of the ninth inning. He struck out six and surrendered only three hits. The veteran right-hander will carry a 3.88 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into his next start at home versus the Blue Jays.

Yankees outfield prospect Aaron Judge went 2-for-4 for High-A Tampa on Saturday.

After hitting .333/.428/.530 with Low-A Charleston, Judge has hit .303/.425/.495 in his first 28 games with High-A Tampa. Judge has been even hotter as of late, hitting .395/.452/.500 with hits in nine of his last 10 games. Judge has a short stroke for someone his size (6'7", 230 lbs), and could turn into a slugging right fielder for the Yankees who comes up in early-2016.
Jul 20 - 12:35 PM

Brandon McCarthy struck out nine batters over six innings of one-run ball in a 7-1 win over the Reds on Saturday.

Making his home debut in pinstripes, McCarthy was in control all afternoon, scattering six hits while walking none. The only run scored on a solo homer from Chris Heisey in the fifth inning. At the cost of Vidal Nuno, the 31-year-old was a solid addition to patch the injury-riddled rotation in New York, but he's a fringe option in mixed leagues now that he's calling the AL East home.
Jul 19 - 4:12 PM

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Reds.

Beltran now has back-to-back multi-hit games since returning from the All-Star break and the 7-day concussion disabled list. He has three home runs over his last 10 games dating back to late June, which is a good sign for the condition of his elbow.
Jul 19 - 4:10 PM

Brett Gardner drove in three runs in a win over the Reds on Saturday.

Gardner had a pair of sacrifice flies and an RBI single. The 30-year-old is now up to 40 RBI on the season. At this rate, he's going to destroy his career high of 52 RBI, which he had last year.
Jul 19 - 4:10 PM

Brian Roberts went 2-for-4 with three runs scored Saturday against the Reds.

Both hits were singles. Roberts came into Saturday's action with just two hits in 23 at-bats over his last six games. The 36-year-old has managed to remain healthy this season and plays half of his games in one of the most hitter-friendly ballparks in the majors, but he's not doing much with the opportunity. He's batting just .241/.305/.372 over 84 games.
Jul 19 - 4:09 PM

David Phelps yielded three runs (two earned) over 6 1/3 innings Friday in a 4-3 win over the Reds.

Two of the three runs scored on solo homers from Brayan Pena. Otherwise, Phelps was very effective, allowing six hits and one walk while notching seven strikeouts. He now has a 3.87 ERA over 14 starts this season and should continue to have appeal as a matchup play as long as he sticks in the rotation.
Jul 18 - 10:01 PM

David Robertson tossed a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Reds for his 24th save of the season.

Robertson worked around a two-out single from Chris Heisey to lock down the victory. He has now converted 12 consecutive save opportunities and has a dominant 2.67 ERA and 59/10 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings.
Jul 18 - 10:00 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead two-run homer and a stolen base in Friday's win over the Reds.

Ellsbury's fifth inning blast off Mike Leake broke a 2-2 tie and stood up as the difference in the ballgame. It was his seventh home run of the season and his third this month alone. The high-priced outfielder is batting .284/.348/.409 with seven home runs, 44 RBI, 25 stolen bases, and 45 runs scored through 92 games this season, so he remains a highly valuable five-category contributor in fantasy leagues.
Jul 18 - 9:59 PM

Derek Jeter went 2-for-4 with two runs scored Friday against the Reds.

Jeter singled to lead off the bottom of the fifth inning before Jacoby Ellsbury put the Yankees ahead with a two-run home run. The Captain hasn't had the smoothest ride in his swan song, but he has four multi-hit games in his last six. He's batting .275/.326/.325 over 84 games.
