Alex Rodriguez homered, doubled and drove home four runs as the Yankees were outlasted by the Red Sox on Sunday night in Boston.

A-Rod blasted a two-run homer off David Price in the third inning then added on a two-run double his next time up in the fifth. The 40-year-old slugger has really picked up his offense in the past few weeks, and is now slashing .203/.286/.464 with five homers and 12 RBI on the season.

Nathan Eovaldi struggled in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Sunday night, surrendering six runs on 10 hits in just five innings of work.

Eovaldi also issued three free passes while striking out three on the evening. The Red Sox scratched out a run in the first inning, rallied for three in the third and added on with a two-run homer from Travis Shaw in the fifth. The 26-year-old hurler has struggled mightily through his first five starts, compiling a 5.46 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 31/8 K/BB ratio across 29 2/3 innings. He'll look to put this one behind him and get back on track in a rematch against these Red Sox at home on Saturday.
May 1 - 11:38 PM

Didi Gregorius is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday's matchup against the Red Sox.

Gregorius once again will take a seat against a tough opposing left-hander as manager Joe Girardi opts to play the matchups. Ronald Torreyes will start at shortstop for the Yankees and bat eighth on Sunday.
May 1 - 5:32 PM

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

He'll take a seat in favor of Austin Romine, who will bat nine for the Bombers on Sunday night. McCann is off to a solid start at the plate this season, slashing .262/.351/.415 with three homers and seven RBI in his first 19 games.
May 1 - 5:30 PM

Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday night's showdown against the Red Sox.

It's just a routine day of rest for the 39-year-old. Aaron Hicks will draw the start in his place and bat seventh against opposing left-hander David Price.
May 1 - 5:27 PM

Aaron Hicks (shoulder) grounded out as a pinch-hitter and remained in the game in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

It was Hicks' first plate appearance since April 22, as he's been battling bursitis in his left shoulder. The shoulder issue probably isn't behind him, but Hicks could start seeing starts against lefties again.
May 1 - 8:09 AM

Michael Pineda couldn't go more than five innings in Saturday's loss against the rival Red Sox, but kept his squad in the game with only two runs allowed on five hits.

Pineda continues to be immensely hittable on the mound, now with 35 hits in 27 innings, but the inefficiency and lack of strikeouts really stood out on Saturday. He needed 106 pitches to span five innings, and although he entered the game with an attractive 27:5 K:BB, he both walked and struck out three. The 27-year-old had quality advanced metrics heading into the 2016 season, but it hasn’t worked out in his favor thus far, showing that strikeout-to-walk ratios are not always perfect indicators of future success. Being around the zone too much can have negative consequences. Pineda has a 6.33 ERA on the year and will get a rematch against the Red Sox in his next outing on Friday, May 6.
Apr 30 - 10:51 PM

Masahiro Tanaka was charged with two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday.

Tanaka allowed just three hits while shutting down the Red Sox over the first six innings, but he unraveled in the seventh by giving up three hits, including a game-tying double to Jackie Bradley, Jr. He struck out five and walked none. Tanaka only has one win to his credit thus far, but he owns a 2.87 ERA through his first five starts and has allowed exactly two earned runs in all of them. He’ll face the Orioles on the road next time out.
Apr 29 - 10:13 PM

Alex Rodriguez socked a solo homer Friday against the Red Sox.

He’s up to four home runs on the season and 691 for his career. Rodriguez has five hits (including two doubles and two home runs) over his last three games, so at least he’s showing some signs of life. The 40-year-old is batting .194/.286/.419 overall.
Apr 29 - 10:12 PM

Yankees LHP prospect Dietrich Enns took a no-hitter into the sixth inning Wednesday in a win for Double-A Trenton.

New Hampshire's Ian Parmley broke it up with a bunt single in the sixth, ending a string of 14 batters retired in a row. It was New Hampshire's first hit in 15 innings after getting no-hit on Tuesday night. Enns has taken a no-hitter into the sixth inning in each of his last two starts and has yet to allow a run this season. Opponents have hit .120 against Enns with 25 strikeouts in 75 at-bats. The 24-year-old is quickly outgrowing Double-A.

Aaron Hicks (shoulder) served as a pinch-runner on Wednesday versus the Rangers.

Hicks took over at first base for Alex Rodriguez after A-Rod smacked a one-out single to right off Rangers closer Shawn Tolleson, but Brian McCann and Starlin Castro both promptly hit into groundouts. Hicks has been absent from the Yankees' starting lineup for close to a week now due to traumatic bursitis in his left shoulder. He is still considered day-to-day.
Apr 28 - 7:52 AM

Alex Rodriguez finished 3-for-3 with a walk and a homer in Wednesday night's loss to the Rangers.

A-Rod sat out the first two games of this series because of oblique stiffness, but he looked to be moving free and easy on Wednesday as he walked in the second, homered in the fourth, doubled in the sixth, and singled in the ninth. The veteran designated hitter raised his season slash line from .145/.242/.273 to .190/.288/.379 in one busy night.
Apr 27 - 11:14 PM

CC Sabathia took a loss Wednesday after allowing three earned runs in six innings against the Rangers.

Sabathia walked three and gave up five hits in yet another so-so outing. He has allowed three earned runs in each of his four starts this season for an ERA of 5.06. A road date with the dangerous Orioles is next.
Apr 27 - 11:06 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated that Aaron Hicks (shoulder) will be available to pinch-hit against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Hicks hurt his left shoulder on an attempted catch during Friday's game against the Rays. A subsequent MRI revealed traumatic bursitis, which sounds frightening enough. It appears he has avoided a stint on the disabled list for the time being, though.
Apr 27 - 7:29 PM

Alex Rodriguez (oblique) is in the lineup for Wednesday's contest with the Rangers.

Rodriguez was forced out of Sunday's game against the Rays due to oblique stiffness. He missed the first two games of the Bombers' series against the Rangers, but is back in the lineup and hitting fifth on Wednesday. The veteran slugger has struggled through the first month of the season and is slashing just .145/.242/.273 with two homers and six RBI over 55 at-bats.
