New York Yankees Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Kahnle did not record an out Sunday, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk in a loss to the Red Sox.
Impact: Kahnle has been very reliable all season, especially with his new club since being dealt to the Yankees at the trade deadline, but struggles have cropped up recently. In his last two outings, he's allowed four runs on five hits and a pair of walks while recording just two outs. It's likely too early to overreact, but if he continues to struggle, Kahnle could start falling in the pecking order of New York's crowded bullpen.
News: Aroldis Chapman walked one and didn't allow a hit in 1.1 scoreless innings as the New York Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-1 on Sunday. Chapman struck out two, ending the game with a 4.14 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Chapman's first outing since being removed from the closer's role was an encouraging one, especially since he was rocked for seven runs in 4 1/3 innings over his previous four appearances. Though his fantasy value has taken a recent hit, the hard-throwing lefty will remain a good source of strikeouts for a reliever.
News: Sonny Gray fell to 7-8, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the New York Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-1 on Sunday. Gray did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 3.38 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Gray wasn't very efficient in this one, as he labored through 106 pitches in his five-inning stint. The prized in-season acquisition fell to 1-3 in four starts as a Yankee, though he has a respectable 3.13 ERA during that stretch. The former Oakland hurler faces a familiar foe when he gets the Mariners at Yankee Stadium next time out.
News: Tommy Kahnle allowed two runs on two hits and one walk without recording an out as the New York Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-1 on Sunday. Kahnle did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 2.98 ERA and 1.08 WHIP on the season.
Impact:
News: Adam Warren allowed one run on two hits in 0.2 innings as the New York Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-1 on Sunday. Warren did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 2.03 ERA and 0.83 WHIP on the season.
Impact:
News: Aaron Judge went 0 for 4 Sunday as the New York Yankees fell to the Boston Red Sox 5-1. He ended the game with a .282 batting average.
Impact: The positive is that Judge put the ball in play in each of his first three plate appearances before striking out in the last. The negatives are that he's in a 1-for-16 slump, has fanned in an MLB-record 37 consecutive games and is batting .169 (21 for 124) since the All-Star break.
News: Didi Gregorius went 0 for 4 Sunday as the New York Yankees fell to the Boston Red Sox 5-1. He ended the game with a .309 batting average.
Impact:
News: Gary Sanchez went 0 for 3 Sunday as the New York Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-1. He ended the game with a .270 batting average.
Impact: Sanchez entered the series on a tear, but Boston pitchers held him to one hit (a home run) in 12 at-bats over the three games. The All-Star catcher is still 14 for 44 (.318) with six homers and 13 RBIs over his last 12 outings.
News: Brett Gardner went 2 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Sunday as the New York Yankees fell to the Boston Red Sox 5-1. The homer was his 20th of the season. Gardner stole a base. He ended the game with a .256 batting average.
Impact: Gardner took advantage of Fenway Park's short right field to end a 20-game stretch without a home run, capping an excellent series for the veteran outfielder. He went 7 for 14 over the three games.
News: Aaron Hicks went 0 for 4 Sunday as the New York Yankees fell to the Boston Red Sox 5-1. He ended the game with a .265 batting average.
Impact: Hicks had an awful series at the plate, going 1 for 12 with seven strikeouts, and he's mostly struggled since returning from an oblique strain earlier this month. The outfielder is just 7 for 45 (.156) since coming off the DL.
News: Chase Headley went 1 for 3 with a double Sunday as the New York Yankees fell to the Boston Red Sox 5-1. He ended the game with a .276 batting average.
Impact: Though he's knocked in only two runs over his last 12 games, Headley is 7 for 16 with three doubles and four runs scored in his past five to keep up his second-half success. He's now hitting .341 over his last 37 games.
News: Todd Frazier went 0 for 2 Sunday as the New York Yankees fell to the Boston Red Sox 5-1. He ended the game with a .211 batting average.
Impact:
News: Tyler Austin went 0 for 3 Sunday as the New York Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-1. He ended the game with a .250 batting average.
Impact:
News: Ronald Torreyes went 0 for 3 Sunday as the New York Yankees fell to the Boston Red Sox 5-1. He ended the game with a .284 batting average.
Impact:
News: Mitchell was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.
Impact: Mitchell being sent down to the minors was likely done in preparation for Masahiro Tanaka's (shoulder) upcoming activation from the disabled list. Mitchell threw six innings over three games during his latest stint with the big club, during which he allowed four runs on 10 hits and two walks.
News: Gray (7-8) allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks across five innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Red Sox. He did not record a strikeout.
Impact: Gray struggled with the bottom of the lineup in this one, yielding a two-run triple to ninth-place hitter Jackie Bradley in the second inning. He battled out of trouble on several occasions, but that took a toll on his pitch count, with reached 101 by the end of the fifth inning. Though Gray's string of nine consecutive quality starts came to an end, he has still allowed no more than two earned runs in any of his four starts since moving over from Oakland. He will carry a sharp 3.38 ERA into Saturday's start against the Mariners.
News: David Robertson allowed one hit and one walk without giving up a run in 1.1 innings as the New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Saturday. Robertson struck out three, ending the game with a 2.19 ERA and 0.91 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Robertson could be in the mix for saves, though Dellin Betances got the first opportunity to replace the struggling Aroldis Chapman in this one. The veteran right still possesses fantasy appeal if he can keep up his tremendous August, as he's 2-0 and has struck out 16 in 10 scoreless innings over eight appearances this month.
News: Dellin Betances recorded his ninth save, allowing no runs on no hits in 1.0 inning, as the New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Saturday. Betances struck out two, ending the game with a 2.11 ERA and 1.17 WHIP on the season.
Impact: With the closer's role now an open competition in New York, Betances got the first crack and continued the success he's had since the All-Star break. Over his last 19 appearances, the towering right-hander has yielded one run while striking out 30 batters in 19 2/3 innings.
News: Adam Warren allowed one run on one hit in 0.2 innings as the New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Saturday. Warren struck out two, ending the game with a 1.88 ERA and 0.80 WHIP on the season.
Impact:
News: Aaron Judge went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts Saturday as the New York Yankees topped the Boston Red Sox 4-3. He ended the game with a .285 batting average.
Impact: The strikeouts keep piling up for Judge, who's now whiffed 37 times in 70 at-bats while batting .171 over his last 20 games. The young slugger is just 1 for 7 lifetime off Sunday's starter Rick Porcello, though the one hit was a home run.
News: Aaron Hicks went 1 for 4 with a double Saturday as the New York Yankees topped the Boston Red Sox 4-3. He ended the game with a .270 batting average.
Impact:
News: Todd Frazier went 1 for 3 with a home run and an RBI Saturday as the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3. The homer was his 21st of the season. Frazier scored twice. He ended the game with a .212 batting average.
Impact: Frazier entered the series in a 1-for-18 rut, but he's 3 for 6 with a pair of homers and four runs scored through the first two games. The reported Red Sox trade target has now gone deep four times with seven RBIs over his last five visits to Fenway Park.
News: Didi Gregorius went 3 for 4 with a double Saturday as the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3. Gregorius scored once. He ended the game with a .312 batting average.
Impact: The shortstop continues to be a consistent offensive presence, as he's batting .383 (23 for 60) over his last 15 games and .350 with eight homers in 35 contests since the All-Star break. Gregorius has also hit well at Fenway Park, where he's produced a .354 average (17 for 48) over his last 12 visits.
News: Ronald Torreyes went 0 for 3 Saturday as the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3. He ended the game with a .287 batting average.

Impact: Austin opened the scoring with a three-run homer off Chris Sale in the second inning and is 4 for 8 in two starts since being recalled from Triple A. Both starts came against left-handers, and the 25-year-old is now 12 for 32 with four homers off southpaws during his brief big league career.
News: Brett Gardner went 2 for 5 Saturday as the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3. He ended the game with a .253 batting average.
Impact: Gardner broke out of a 4-for-37 slump with three hits in Friday's game, so he appears to be back on track. The veteran outfielder's power has diminished during the dog days, though, as he's now gone 20 games since his last home run.
News: Chase Headley went 0 for 4 Saturday as the New York Yankees topped the Boston Red Sox 4-3. He ended the game with a .276 batting average.
