Miguel Andujar went 2-for-4 and smacked a solo home run in a win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

He jacked the bomb off starter David Price in the second inning. That got the ball rolling for the Yankees, who scored 10 runs in the contest. Andujar also doubled in the ballgame. He has a .298 batting average with 25 home runs and 84 RBI in 139 games. The 23-year-old third baseman is a favorite to win the AL Rookie of the Year award.

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-5 and drove in three runs during a win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

He tripled to score Andrew McCutchen and Aaron Judge in the sixth inning, then added an RBI-single that plated Gleyber Torres in the eighth. Hicks has been stuck in a slog in recent weeks, so maybe this mini-outburst will get him rolling again. He doesn't have studly rate stats, although hitting in the middle of the high-scoring Yankee lineup has led to some nice run production numbers. He is slashing .244/.364/.452 with 24 home runs, 72 RBI and 83 runs scored in 551 plate appearances. He needs two more stolen bases to match the career high of 13 he set back in 2015.

Luke Voit went 4-for-4 and clubbed a pair of home runs as the Yankees trounced the Red Sox 10-1 on Wednesday.

Both dingers came off left-hander David Price. The first was a solo shot in the fourth inning and the second came with a runner aboard in the sixth. The young first baseman has thrived in a part-time role since joining the Yankees. He is being used mostly as a lefty-killer. He has a superlative .308/.390/.615 slash line with 10 home runs and 23 RBI in 118 plate appearances. The first 13 of those plate appearances came with the Cardinals earlier this year.

Luis Severino gave up just one run through seven innings and was rewarded with a win against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

He shut down the highest-scoring offense in the majors without much difficulty. He struck out six batters, walked one and surrendered six knocks. The only run came on an RBI-single by catcher Sandy Leon in the fifth inning. Severino burned 109 pitches in this game and might be used lightly in his last start of the season if the Yankees have clinched the wild card by then. The young right-hander is 18-8 with a 3.38 ERA in 31 starts this year. It is unclear right now if he will get one or two more starts as he makes a run at 20 wins.

Austin Romine was unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox with a neck injury.

Romine reportedly woke up with a stiff neck, so he was unavailable in the win over the Red Sox on Tuesday. He's reportedly available off the bench on Wednesday, but the Yankees won't use him unless there's an emergency. He's hitting .248/.302/.430 with 10 homers in 74 games with the Yankees in 2018.

Yankees activated LHP Aroldis Chapman from the 10-day disabled list.

Chapman will be available out of the Yankees' bullpen for the second of three games against the rival Red Sox on Wednesday after missing nearly four weeks of action with tendinitis in his left knee. Given that the DL stint did not involve any sort of arm injury, it seems possible that manager Aaron Boone might throw Chapman right back in as the team's primary ninth-inning man.
Sep 19 - 11:15 AM

J.A. Happ held the Red Sox to just one unearned run over six innings Tuesday, taking a no-decision in the Yankees' 3-2 win.

Happ and catcher Gary Sanchez often weren’t on the same page in this one. The left-hander walked three after walking no more than one in seven of his first eight starts as a Yankee, and the lone run that scored while he was in there did so following a Sanchez passed ball. Still, it was another terrific outing from Happ, who was let off the hook after the Yankees rallied late. He now boasts a 2.39 ERA over nine starts in pinstripes. The southpaw gets the Orioles at home Sunday.
Sep 18 - 10:46 PM

Zach Britton gave up an unearned run but hung on to notch a save Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Britton issued a one-out walk and that runner then scored following back-to-back errors, including one by the pitcher himself. He was able to strand the tying run at second base, though, by getting Ian Kinsler to ground into a game-ending double play. It's Britton's second save as a Yankee, as he has rebounded this month after a rough August. Aroldis Chapman's (knee) return is imminent, but Britton, Dellin Betances or David Robertson could see another save chance or two as the closer eases back into things.
Sep 18 - 10:44 PM

Neil Walker slugged a go-ahead three-run home run in the seventh inning of the Yankees' comeback victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Nathan Eovaldi held the Bombers in check for six innings, but Brandon Workman and Ryan Brasier coughed up the lead an inning later, with the latter serving up the longball to Walker. It was a no-doubter that reached the second deck in right field at Yankee Stadium. The home run was the first this month for Walker, who was making just his second start in over a week.
Sep 18 - 10:38 PM

Aaron Judge went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his return from the disabled list Tuesday.

Judge hit a screamer right at right fielder J.D. Martinez in the first inning in his first plate appearance in nearly two months. He later grounded into a double play, flew out and struck out. Judge reportedly looked good in batting practice and simulated game, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he shows some rust following a long layoff.
Sep 18 - 10:33 PM

Aroldis Chapman (knee) is expecting to be activated from the disabled list in the next day or so.

Chapman told reporters Tuesday that both his arm and left knee felt good following a 22-pitch simulated workout on Monday. The left-handed closer landed on the disabled list on August 22 with left knee tendinitis. He may be eased back in, but Chapman figures to serve as the Yankees' primary closer over the final week of the regular season and into the postseason. Dellin Betances and David Robertson have been filling in.

Aaron Judge (wrist) has returned to the Yankees' starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

Huge news for the Yankees. Judge participated in a simulated game for the second straight day on Tuesday, but the assumption was that it would likely be another day or two before he would return to the lineup. So it's a nice surprise for Yankees fans and fantasy owners. Judge is slated to hit second and play right field in his first start since suffering a fracture in his right wrist back on July 26.
Sep 18 - 3:23 PM

Aaron Judge (wrist) took swings in a simulated game for the second straight day on Tuesday.

Facing minor league right-hander Adonis Rosa, Judge slugged an opposite field homer and put three other plays in play. He also swung and missed at several pitches. Still, it's a good sign for his wrist that he was able to take some swings against live pitching on back-to-back days. It's possible that Judge could return at some point during this week's series against the Red Sox. Judge has been out since late July with a chip fracture in his right wrist.
Sep 18 - 1:20 PM

Yankees transferred OF Clint Frazier from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Justus Sheffield on the 40-man roster. Frazier recently had a setback with concussion symptoms and can now officially be ruled out for the remainder of the season. He'll hope for better luck on the health front in 2019.
Sep 18 - 10:17 AM

Yankees purchased the contract of LHP Justus Sheffield from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Sheffield, 22, has finally arrived in the big leagues after compiling a 2.48 ERA and 123/50 K/BB ratio in 116 innings between Double- and Triple-A this season. The top prospect will join the Yankees' bullpen for now, but he should prepare as a starter next spring. It should be a fun sneak preview, at the very least.
