    New York Yankees' Austin Romine says he's good to go after taking foul ball off his mask on Saturday

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone talks about Austin Romine's condition NEW YORK – A day after taking a foul ball flush off his catcher's mask, Austin Romine cleared the first several rounds of concussion protocol. Just as importantly, “I feel great. I feel like I can play today,'' the Yankees catcher said before Sunday's series finale against Toronto at Yankee Stadium. Romine said he “slept great'' on Saturday night. He was slated to get on the exercise bike Sunday before further evaluations to “make sure he's symptom free,'' said manager Aaron Boone. Romine reluctantly left Saturday's game just before the sixth inning of an 11-6 Yankees win. Toronto's Richard Urena's fifth-inning foul ball caused

    Yankees catcher Austin Romine leaves game after taking foul ball off head

    In the middle of what should be a nice easy Saturday win, the Yankees got quite a scare out of their catcher. Austin Romine was taken out after five innings behind the plate after he was nailed in the mask by a foul tip off the bat of Richard Urena: You can see how uneasy Romine was, needing the support of umpire David Rackley to stay even somewhat vertical. What that clip doesn't show is Romine spending a number of minutes on the ground immediately after, being tended to by the training staff. He really didn't look good at all. Kyle Higashioka has taken over catching duties, with Romine pulled in between innings. It's unclear right now what exactly is wrong with Romine, or if this is just precautionary.

    Is Aaron Judge without a bat better than Shane Robinson?

    Aaron Judge's injury has not been a good thing for the Yankees, obviously. For starters, it removed an MVP candidate out of a key spot in the lineup. It also forced Shane Robinson into a starting role. Robinson seemed destined to be an “Oh yeah, him” person that you come across years from now while looking through 2018 stats. He played a few games in April before going to Triple-A, where it appeared he would play out the rest of the season. A couple injures and trades later, and suddenly he had to be recalled and has played way more than he should. While I'm sure Robinson is a perfectly nice human being, he hasn't been great at the plate. Through Thursday, he is hitting .129/.229/.226 in 16 games

    Stanton, Walker homer as Yankees top Blue Jays in 7 innings

    NEW YORK (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton got his 31st home run in just under the wire Friday night. Neil Walker hit a three-run homer, Stanton added a blast over the home bullpen at Yankee Stadium and New York rallied for a rain-shortened 7-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night. Stanton drove a ball into a party deck in right-center during the bottom of the seventh, and a batter later, umpires pulled the teams off the field amid rain at Yankee Stadium. The game was called with one out in the seventh after a delay of 1 hour, 25 minutes, capping a come-from-behind win for New York after totaling six runs over a three-game series against Tampa Bay this week. "The win is really huge for us,"

    Twenty years ago, the '98 Yankees ruled baseball like no one had ever done before ... or since

    "We were out on the West Coast, I was starting my first year and we went 0-and-3 to open the season and The Boss pulled me off the road trip. He ordered me back to New York ASAP," Cashman said earlier this month, referring to then-Yankees owner George Steinbrenner. "He was mad. But I remember Joe Torre after we won our first game, my first win as a general manager, he over-nighted the lineup card to me and it was signed 'Dear Cash, the first of many.' It was signed by Joe and the whole coaching staff.

    Dodgers To Play Yankees At Dodger Stadium During 2019 Season

    Given their rich history on both coasts, it's no surprise that the Los Angeles Dodgers are widely regarded as one of the most popular franchises in not only Major League Baseball, but all of professional sports in general. Before their move to Los Angeles in 1958, the Dodgers held their own in a difficult New York market, competing against the likes of the Yankees and Giants. With help from Hall-of-Famers Roy Campanella, Jackie Robinson and Duke Snider, among others, the Dodgers often challenged the Yankees as New York's top dog. The two teams met up a staggering seven times in the World Series throughout the 1940s and 1950s, with the Yankees claiming victory in all but one. Since their move

    Yankees' Severino tries to get back into groove vs. Jays Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees The Blue Jays have lost six of their last seven to the Yankees, scoring just 2.3 runs per game over that stretch.
