NY Post: Giancarlo Stanton has another setback in Yankees rehab
First it was the biceps, then shoulder. Now, Giancarlo Stanton has had a calf setback.
The Yankees announced the star outfielder has been "returned" from his rehab assignment with left calf tightness. Stanton was hit in the leg a few days ago, Aaron Boone said Monday, and was held out of the High-A Tampa lineup Tuesday as a precaution. He was expected to play Wednesday before the Yankees announced the pause.
"The knee tightened up a bit, the knee/calf-ish area," Boone said Monday.
Elite Sports NY: New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius goes 1-for-3 in extended spring training game
The New York Yankees are one of the best teams in baseball despite missing many key contributors. Didi Gregorius underwent Tommy John surgery in the offseason, but he could make his return faster than anyone expected.
According to Newsday's Erik Boland, Gregorius finished Wednesday's extended spring training game going 1-for-3 with a walk. This comes just one day after Gregorius was pulled from the lineup due to dehydration.
"What happened Monday? Dehydrated," Gregorius told the AP. "Just got headaches. Nothing too crazy. Felt good yesterday and today was really good.

Pinstripe Alley: Improved infield defense has helped the Yankees' pitching staff
The Yankees are somehow on top of the AL East, claiming two series from the Rays in a matter of two weeks despite a painfully long list of injuries. The team has taken on an endearing "next man up" mentality, though in reality, the offense has been a middle-of-the-pack team in terms of scoring runs this season. For a club that scored the second-most runs in baseball last season, this is a significant drop-off.
The Bombers are in a success position, however, because the pitching staff has weathered injuries to arguably its two best pitchers in Luis Severino and James Paxton.
Bronx Pinstripes: Gary Sanchez
is not the same player as last year. I want to raise my metaphorical glass and give him a cheers. *Cheers Gary.* I also want to personally toast all of us who believed Gary would tear the league up this year. *A toast to all of us who were right and should rub it in.*
There were a lot of people who took the easy route and dumped on Gary Sanchez because of 2018. They called him a fluke, fat, lazy, a slob, and whatever other way you can insult a guy.

Elite Sports NY: New York Yankees: Ranking the best of the 2019 comeback wins
Heading into the sixth inning and the New York Yankees are losing. How many times have we heard this statement this year?
Now, how many times has that statement been flipped upside down by the incredible magic of this Bronx team?
Thirteen times, to be exact!
This season hasn't didn't seem to be going in the favor of the Bronx Bombers from the get-go. With numerous IL stints and disappointing offensive performances, the New York Yankees picked it up when their back-ups filled in.
And so far this season, the Yankees have shown just how resilient and dominant they can be.
NY Post: Aaron Judge starting to 'ramp up a little' in Yankees rehab
BALTIMORE -- Aaron Judge didn't swing a bat against a pitcher. Nor did he run the bases. Or make throws from right field to third base and home plate.
Yet, Judge's rehab program was on full display Tuesday at Camden Yards, where he took dry swings in the bullpen, played catch with outfield coach Reggie Willits and tracked Masahiro Tanaka's bullpen pitches with bat in hand and helmet on head.
"He has done that a couple of times in the past,'' Tanaka said of Judge tracking his pitches. "I think he was at his best this time.
Replacement Level Yankees Weblog: Yankees.com: Frazier fuels Yanks' 10th straight win at Camden
Disclaimer: If you think this is the official website of the New York Yankees, you're an idiot. Go away.
Clint Frazier busted his slump with a two-homer performance, Gary Sanchez cracked a three-run blast, and Domingo German became the Majors' first nine-game winner as the Yankees trounced the Orioles on Tuesday night, 11-4, logging their 10th consecutive victory at Camden Yards.
Entering with six hits in 40 at-bats (.150) since being activated from the injured list on May 6, Frazier mashed a two-run homer in the third inning and added a three-run shot in the fifth inning as the Yankees tattooed David Hess for nine runs over five innings, coasting to their 23rd win in 31 games.
CBS: Frazier Leads Another Home Run Barrage In Baltimore, Yankees Win 11-4
BALTIMORE (CBSNewYork/AP) -- The New York Yankees have climbed into first place in the AL East in spite of a myriad of injuries and partially because the front end of their schedule is loaded with games against the Baltimore Orioles.
Clint Frazier homered twice and had a career-high five RBI, Gary Sanchez contributed a three-run drive and the Yankees kept up their assault on Baltimore pitching in an 11-4 rout Tuesday night.
Nearly a fifth of New York's 47 games thus far have been against the Orioles, who are 6-17 at home and 15-33 overall, the worst record in the AL.
NY Post: Yankees had no choice but to pummel MLB's laughingstock
BALTIMORE -- When it comes to Yankees-Orioles, the former is in a very tough spot because the latter is not a big-league team, never mind just a bad big-league outfit.
If the Yankees lose, they get ridiculed for falling to a bad team. Beat the Orioles and that's what is supposed to happen, even if the Yankees are missing several of their biggest stars.
On Tuesday night at Camden Yards, the Yankees didn't have to be concerned with being laughed at because they pummeled the laughingstocks of baseball, 11-4, in front of an announced crowd of 17,389.

Pinstripe Alley: New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles: Domingo German vs. David Hess
What started as a "the Yankees need to get going before I turn on Netflix-game" turned into one of the most entertaining nights of the season. The Yankees scored all ten of their runs in the sixth inning or later. Gary Sanchez continued his comeback season with the go-ahead homer in the ninth. Gleyber Torres had his fifth multi-homer game of his career, making him the youngest player ever to have five multi-homer games. But most importantly, the Yankees increased their AL East lead to a full game over the Rays, who had a day off on Monday.
