Yankees 2B prospect Abiatal Avelino went 5-for-8 with a home run and two stolen bases in Sunday's doubleheader for High-A Tampa.

He scored four times as Tampa split the doubleheader with Bradenton. Avelino has hit .412 during his nine-game hitting streak with three RBI and 17 total bases. The 20-year-old doesn't hit for much power (only four homers in 374 at-bats) but has game-changing speed with 45 steals on 59 attempts this season.

Stephen Drew went 3-for-5 with a double, triple and four RBI in Sunday's 12-3 win over the White Sox.

Drew fell a home run short of the cycle. He doubled in two runs in the fifth inning, then tripled in two more in the seventh. The three-bagger was his first of the season. Despite some nice power numbers, the embattled second baseman is hitting just .199/.268/.390 with 13 homers and 32 RBI. The Mendoza Line is so, so close.

Ivan Nova pitched well in Sunday's win over the White Sox, allowing one run on five hits over six innings.

Nova struck out seven and walked two on the afternoon. Only a Melky Cabrera RBI single in the sixth inning prevented him from posting six shutout frames. Since returning from the disabled list on June 24, he holds a 3.10 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across 40 2/3 innings. He complained of a fatigued arm after his last start, but that didn't appear to be an issue on Sunday. Assuming the arm's good to go, a home start against the high-powered Blue Jays awaits on the schedule.

Yankees recalled RHP Branden Pinder from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He's taking Diego Moreno's spot in the bullpen. Pinder boasts a 2.92 ERA over 11 relief appearances with the big club this season.
Aug 2 - 12:21 PM

Yankees placed RHP Diego Moreno on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

He'll undergo an MRI on Monday to see if there's anything wrong structurally. Moreno was tagged for four runs over three relief innings on Saturday.
Aug 2 - 11:18 AM

Bryan Mitchell didn't fool many hitters in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

Mitchell let up four runs and seven hits before getting the hook from manager Joe Girardi after only four innings of work. It looks like Mitchell is on his way out of the rotation as the Yankees are planning to call up top prospect Luis Severino for Wednesday's start against the Red Sox. Mitchell could be headed back to the minors.
Aug 1 - 11:03 PM

Luis Severino will make his major league debut Wednesday against the Red Sox.

After dominating at every level, the Yankees are finally ready to see what their No. 1 prospect is made of. The 21-year-old was brilliant in his last start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, tallying 10 strikeouts over six one-hit innings. Bryan Mitchell will lose his spot in the starting rotation when Severino arrives.

Yankees recalled RHP Nick Rumbelow from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Rumbelow allowed one run over 3 1/3 innings in a four-game stint with the Bombers earlier this year. He's had an up and down year for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, compiling a mediocre 4.60 ERA in 31 appearances.
Aug 1 - 5:29 PM

Yankees optioned RHP Nick Goody to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Goody posted a 6.75 ERA in his two outings with the big club. New York called up Nick Rumbelow in the corresponding roster move.
Aug 1 - 5:25 PM

Mark Teixeira had a monster night Friday against the Rangers, going 3-for-6 with two home runs, six RBI, and two walks.

Batting right-handed, Teixeira took Carlos Rodon deep for a grand slam in the second inning before connecting for a two-run shot against Matt Albers from the left side in the fourth. It was the 14th time in his career that he homered from both sides of the plate in the same game, setting a new major league record. The veteran slugger has back-to-back multi-homer games and is now batting .269/.375/.585 with 28 home runs and 73 RBI on the year. It's been a remarkable resurgence.
Aug 1 - 1:47 AM

Nathan Eovaldi yielded three runs over 5 2/3 innings in Friday's 13-6 win over the White Sox.

It wasn't the sharpest outing from Eovaldi, as he allowed seven hits (including a two-run homer to Jose Abreu) and three walks while throwing 117 pitches. The Yankees would have liked to see him pitch deeper into the game, but he had the benefit of a ton of run support, so he improved to 11-2 on the year. The hard-throwing right-hander will bring a 4.30 ERA into a start against the Red Sox next week at home.
Aug 1 - 1:46 AM

Alex Rodriguez was 2-for-2 with an RBI single, three walks, and four runs scored against the White Sox on Friday.

Once again, A-Rod and Teixeira got it done in the middle of the Yankees' lineup. The 40-year-old has now hit safely in seven straight games and currently ranks fifth in the AL with a .930 OPS. He's on pace for 38 home runs and 97 RBI to go along with 98 runs scored. Who saw this coming?
Aug 1 - 1:45 AM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday that Luis Severino's next start will come in the majors.

The Yankees weren't able to land a starter at the trade deadline, but part of the reason they felt comfortable passing on deals is surely that they felt good about giving Severino a shot. It's unclear what day the top prospect will debut, but he'll take Michael Pineda's (forearm) spot in the rotation. Severino is worth a shot in all fantasy leagues.
Jul 31 - 5:28 PM

Yankees sent LHP Chris Capuano outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He was removed from the 40-man roster earlier this week. Capuano will stick around for depth.
Jul 31 - 2:26 PM

Yankees activated OF Slade Heathcott from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Heathcott is over his quad injury but is now back in the minors as depth. He's hit .353/.353/.588 in six games for the Yankees this season.
