Andrew Miller shut the Royals down in order in the ninth inning, picking up his 14th save as the Yankees won 4-1 on Wednesday.

Miller got consecutive ground outs from Omar Infante and Paulo Orlando before getting Alcides Escobar to line out to end the contest. The lefty is still perfect in 14 save opportunities with a 0.84 ERA and a 34/9 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings.

Michael Pineda pitched well in a win on Wednesday, limiting the Royals to one run in 6 2/3 innings of work.

The only run came in the first inning on a Mike Moustakas solo home run. Pineda allowed only six hits total along with a walk and eight strikeouts. The right-hander moves to 6-2 on the year with a 3.36 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP, and a 67/5 K/BB ratio in 64 1/3 innings. Pineda will face his former team in the Mariners at Safeco Field in his next outing.
May 27 - 4:11 PM

Brian McCann homered and walked twice in four plate appearances on Wednesday as the Yankees topped the Royals.

McCann tied the game at one apiece with a second-inning home run off of Chris Young. The catcher has homered in back-to-back games and now has six on the season along with 29 RBI and a .239/.310/.428 triple-slash line.

Alex Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, leading the Yankees past the Royals on Wednesday.

Rodriguez broke a 1-1 tie with a three-run home run to left field off of Chris Young. The 39-year-old now has 665 home runs in his career and is five RBI shy of 2,000. For the season, Rodriguez is hitting .276/.374/.566 with 11 home runs and 26 RBI.

Yankees pitching prospect Luis Severino tied a career-high with nine strikeouts Tuesday in a win for Double-A Trenton.

Severino allowed three hits, two walks and two runs over five innings. The victory was his first since April 19, ending a five-start winless streak. Severino is now third in the Eastern League in strikeouts (48) and ninth in WHIP (1.11). With only 14 Double-A starts on his resume, the 21-year-old could use a little more seasoning before his next promotion.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that he expects Ivan Nova (elbow) to begin a rehab assignment "pretty soon."

Nova is expected to throw about 70 pitches Wednesday or Thursday in an extended spring training game. His rehab assignment would figure to be pretty lengthy, so Nova is still multiple weeks away from a return. Still, the Yanks will be happy to have him as a rotation option relatively soon.

Adam Warren evened his record at 3-3 after holding the Royals to one run in 6 1/3 innings on Tuesday.

Warren now has three consecutive quality starts following Tuesday's outing. The lone run scored on a Paulo Orlando home run in the sixth inning, accounting for one of the mere two hits he surrendered on the evening. He also struck out five without issuing a walk. The right-hander has a 3.91 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 32/18 K/BB ratio over 50 2/3 innings. Warren will take on the Athletics in a road start next.
May 26 - 9:48 PM

Mark Teixeira went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a two-run double in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

Teixeira got the party started early, driving a two-run home run in the first inning off of Jason Vargas. He tacked on a two-run double in the fifth and later scored as the Yankees went up 5-0. Teixeira has shown no signs of slowing down as May nears its end. He's batting .243/.365/.588 with 14 home runs and 35 RBI.
May 26 - 9:45 PM

Carlos Beltran (flu) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Royals.

Beltran missed back-to-back games with the flu, but he's feeling better. He'll bat sixth against left-hander Jason Vargas.
May 26 - 3:33 PM

Brian McCann is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Royals.

McCann homered in his return from a foot/calf cramp on Monday, so he's likely just getting a routine day off. John Ryan Murphy will fill in behind the plate and catch Adam Warren.
May 26 - 3:32 PM

Brian McCann (foot) blasted a three-run homer, drew two walks, and scored twice in Monday's blowout win over the Royals.

McCann left Sunday's game with cramping in his right foot and calf, but it was never a major concern. The 31-year-old backstop has driven in seven runs over his last four games and is now batting .235/.299/.404 with five home runs and 28 RBI on the year.
May 26 - 8:16 AM

Chase Headley went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI as the Yankees torched the Royals 14-1 on Memorial Day.

Headley kicked off the rout with a two-run homer in the top of the first inning, then Brian McCann and Brett Gardner both followed with three-run shots in what became an eight-run opening frame. Stephen Drew added another three-run homer in the bottom of the second, finally driving Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie from the game. Headley also had an infield single and an RBI double. He's batting .255/.309/.416 with six home runs and 21 RBI in 44 games this season.
May 25 - 4:47 PM

Nathan Eovaldi delivered seven innings of one-run ball Monday in the Yankees' rout of the Royals.

Eovaldi was staked to an eight-run lead after the bottom of the first and an 11-run lead after the bottom of the second, so he went into cruise control against the visiting Royals. Kansas City racked up eight hits, but Eovaldi walked just one and limited the Royals' scoring to a Jarrod Dyson RBI single in the top of the fifth. Eovaldi is now 4-1 with a 4.27 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 40/14 K/BB ratio in 52 2/3 innings this season for New York. The hard-throwing 25-year-old right-hander carries some breakout potential.
May 25 - 4:42 PM

Carlos Beltran is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Monday due to illness.

Beltran also sat out Sunday's series finale against the Rangers. Garrett Jones is starting in right field for the Yankees in Monday's series opener versus the Royals.
May 25 - 11:07 AM

Brian McCann (foot) is in the Yankees' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Royals.

McCann made an early exit from Sunday's game with a foot cramp. It obviously wasn't a serious issue.
