Yankees' Clayton Beeter: Dominant finish at Triple-A
Beeter logged a 1.69 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 27 strikeouts in 16 innings over his final three starts for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
The best Triple-A hitters have mostly been promoted to the majors at this stage of the season, but it was still an excellent way for Beeter to close his age-24 season. Beeter's 93-mph fastball (touches 97 mph) and sweeping slider have been an excellent bat-missing duo -- he also sparingly throws quality third and fourth pitches in his curveball and changeup -- but his command and control have held him back at times. At the very least, it would seem Beeter could help a big-league bullpen at some point next season, and he will need to be added to the 40-man roster this offseason if the Yankees want to protect him from the Rule 5 draft....

Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Goes deep Monday
Peraza went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, an additional RBI and a walk Monday in a 6-4 victory versus the Diamondbacks.
Peraza came through with a big blast in the seventh inning, tying the score 3-3 with a 443-foot shot to left-center field. Arizona retook the lead in the following frame, but New York tied the game in the bottom of the eighth when Peraza walked with the bases loaded. The performance broke a seven-game stretch without an RBI for Peraza, who slashed .154/.214/.192 with a 39.3 percent strikeout rate over the cold stretch.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Austin Wells: Belts second big-league homer
Wells went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run in Monday's 6-4 win against Arizona.
Wells tied the score in the fourth inning with a two-run shot to center field. He added a single in the eighth frame and subsequently crossed the plate with the go-ahead run. The long ball was his second as a pro, both of which have come over his past four games. He's gone 5-for-15 over that span after batting 5-for-39 to begin his major-league career.... See More ...

Yankees' Clay Holmes: Pounds strike zone during 22nd save
Holmes earned a save against the Diamondbacks on Monday, striking out two batters in a perfect inning.
Holmes threw 13 of his 15 pitches for a strike in the outing, retiring all three batters he faced to preserve a two-run advantage. The right-hander has converted all six of his save chances in September, giving up only one earned run over 10 innings. That's a marked improvement over August, when Holmes posted a 7.84 ERA and 1.84 WHIP across 10.1 frames. Overall, he's converted 22 of 25 save opportunities while registering a 2.95 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 69:23 K:B across 61 innings.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Goes just four innings Monday
Schmidt allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out three batters over four innings in a no-decision against Arizona on Monday.
The only runs Schmidt allowed came on an Alek Thomas double in the first inning. However, after a clean second frame, the right-handed hurler labored in the third and fourth, allowing a pair of runners in each inning. He didn't return for the fifth after having thrown 79 pitches. This was Schmidt's shortest outing since Aug. 14, when he gave up eight runs over 2.1 frames against Atlanta. He figures to have one more start remaining this season, which lines up to come against the Royals over the weekend.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Keiner Delgado: More walks than K's in FCL
Delgado slashed .293/.414/.485 with eight home runs, 36 steals on 43 attempts and more walks (36) than strikeouts (31) across 49 games in the Florida Complex League.
Listed at 5-foot-7, 145 pounds, Delgado gets the most out of his physical abilities and gets high marks for his makeup. The 19-year-old switch hitter fits best long term at second base and is at least an above-average runner. Delgado was a year older than the typical high-end FCL prospect, but he is clearly very skilled and may not get significantly challenged until he gets to Double-A or Triple-A.... See More ...

Yankees' Jose Trevino: Will start hitting soon
Trevino (wrist) said Sunday he plans to start hitting in a couple weeks and expects to be ready for spring training next year, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.
Trevino underwent right wrist surgery in late July, putting an end to his 2023 campaign. He appears to be on track in his recovery, which should allow him to have a normal offseason. Trevino thus seems likely to enter spring training fully healthy, though it's not certain he'll open as the Yankees' primary catcher given Austin Wells' strong minor-league campaign and late-season call-up to the big-league squad....

Yankees' Aaron Judge: Playing time in final week TBD
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Monday that he will have discussions with Judge each day this week about the slugger's playing time the rest of the way, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.
Boone indicated Sunday that there were no plans to shut Judge down for the rest of the season, but he seemed less definitive about the possibility when asked again a day later. Judge is making a 22nd consecutive start Monday and has received just three days off since returning from a toe injury in late August. The toe isn't 100 percent healed, though, and with the Yankees officially eliminated from playoff contention it's possible the team and Judge will eventually decide it's best for him to be shut down. Judge isn't expected to require surgery on the toe.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Works in long relief
Vasquez struck out two and was charged with two earned runs on three hits and two walks over 2.1 innings out of the bullpen in Sunday's 7-1 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Vasquez entered the rotation Sept. 12 to make a 3.2-inning start in Game 1 of a doubleheader in Boston, but he's made his subsequent two appearances out of the bullpen. The Yankees appear to have settled on Luke Weaver as their No. 5 starter over Vasquez and Jhony Brito, both of whom will likely continue to work in relief for the final week of the season....

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Shelved with shoulder inflammation
The Yankees placed Kahnle on the 15-day injured list Monday with right shoulder inflammation.
Kahnle will be shut down for the final week of the regular season, but provided that his injury doesn't prove to be more significant that his current diagnosis of shoulder inflammation, he should be in store for a fairly normal offseason. The veteran righty finishes the 2023 campaign with one win, two saves and 14 holds to go with a 2.66 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 48:19 K:BB across 40.2 innings out of the New York bullpen.... See More ...

Yankees' Matt Bowman: Returns to big-league bullpen
The Yankees recalled Bowman from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.
Bowman had been optioned back to Triple-A on Sept. 14, but he'll be eligible to rejoin the Yankees ahead of their series finale versus the Diamondbacks after fellow reliever Tommy Kahnle (shoulder) was moved to the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. Assuming Bowman sticks with the Yankees throughout the final week of the regular season, he'll likely be relegated to a middle-relief role.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Oswaldo Cabrera: Nabs 12th straight start
Cabrera will start in right field and bat sixth in Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Cabrera will be making his 12th consecutive start Monday, with the 24-year-old having bounced between both corner-outfield spots during that time. Most of those starts have come while Everson Pereira was nursing a hamstring injury, but Cabrera will end up replacing a resting Giancarlo Stanton in the lineup Monday while Pereira returns to the lineup for his first start since Sept. 14. Dating back to Sept. 10, Cabrera is slashing .295/.367/.432 over a stretch of 12 games, so look for the Yankees to find ways to keep his hot bat in the lineup over the final week of the season....

Yankees' Frankie Montas: Could return after all
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that "it's possible" Montas (shoulder) will return from the 60-day injured list before the end of the season, Max Goodman of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
The Yankees had essentially ruled out Montas from pitching for the big club this season back in August, but the right-hander is on the radar again after making two rehab appearances with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Montas tossed two scoreless innings in his last appearance Saturday, so he could be ready to throw at least a couple frames for the Yankees as soon as Thursday. Coming back from right shoulder surgery, Montas making a positive late-season impression could be big for him as he enters free agency this winter.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Out of lineup again
Stanton is out of the lineup for Monday's contest against the Diamondbacks.
Stanton will take seat for the second straight game and the third time in four contests while he battles through a slump at the dish. With Stanton out of the lineup, Aaron Judge will serve as the Yankees' designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Everson Pereira: Back in lineup Monday
Pereira (hamstring) will start in left field and bat ninth Monday against the Diamondbacks.
Pereira will be making his first start since Sept. 14 after missing the past week and a half with a nagging hamstring injury. With rain in the forecast for New York on Monday, Pereira could be at risk of being scratched from the contest, but for now, the 22-year-old looks like he'll stick in the lineup. The rookie is batting just .143 with no home runs and four stolen bases in 21 games since being called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Aug. 22.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Carlos Rodon: Falls to Arizona
Rodon (3-7) took the loss Sunday, allowing five runs on five hits and a walk over 6.1 innings against the Diamondbacks. He struck out four.
The Diamondbacks got to Rodon twice in the opening inning, putting the Yankees in an early 2-0 hole. The left-hander would then deliver five shutout innings before Arizona scored three more runs in the seventh. Rodon's been inconsistent of late, pitching to a 6.65 ERA over his last four starts (21.2 innings). Overall, it's been a tough first season with the Yankees for Rodon -- he'll carry a 5.74 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP and 64 strikeouts into his final start of the year, currently scheduled for late next week in Kansas City....
