Alex Rodriguez may be the only player on the Yankees' roster who is viewed solely as a designated hitter, but that doesn't necessarily mean he can bank on taking all of the at-bats in that role.
After nine seasons riding buses through various Minor League outposts, including three-plus years when it seemed his career had stalled in the Texas League, a set of big league bullpen doors finally swung open for Richard Bleier on Monday evening.
Right-hander Marco Estrada rose to the occasion when the Blue Jays needed him the most, tossing eight scoreless innings in a 4-2 victory over the Yankees on Monday night at Rogers Centre.
The Yankees' bats seemed to be held up in customs until Brian McCann's long ninth-inning home run on Monday, a blast they hope indicates that a snooze plaguing most of their lineup is coming to an end.
On Monday, after finishing his rehab assignment, Luis Severino was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he will attempt to shrug off an underwhelming opening to his 2016 campaign.
It was only a Memorial Day double-header, but enough took place between the Yankees and Red sox on the field at Fenway Park on Friday that it almost seemed like an entire baseball season in itself. And it wasn't a particularly pretty one.
Jake Odorizzi carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, but one swing of the bat from Starlin Castro changed everything.
The beauty of the three-headed monster at the back end of the Yankees' bullpen is that one swing can turn a loss into a win, which is exactly what happened after Starlin Castro connected for their first -- and only -- hit of the afternoon on Sunday.
A-Rod the focus of daughter's homework assignment
Michael Pineda will have at least one more chance to turn his troubled season around. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that no changes have been discussed to the rotation, with Pineda set to take the ball for Thursday's makeup game against the Tigers in Detroit.

Matt Moore pitched 6 2/3 innings of Tampa Bay's 9-5 win over the Yankees on Saturday afternoon at Tropicana Field, allowing three runs.
A look at the top performances from top prospects on Saturday.
Change tends to come slowly for the Yankees, especially with a classic on-field look that has remained largely unaltered for decades. So the debut of the team's new matte-finish helmets sparked conversation among the players, who offered positive reviews.
Nathan Eovaldi can throw as hard as anyone. But it's his secondary pitches, not his electric fastball, that are responsible for his recent success.
Masahiro Tanaka scrambled off the mound and darted directly toward the runner between second and third bases, undeterred by Steve Pearce's desperate dekes as he slapped a tag on the Rays' designated hitter, ripping his execution directly from the fundamental playbook.
Alex Rodriguez's two-run homer backed a solid start by Masahiro Tanaka to lead the Yankees to a 4-1 win over the Rays at Tropicana Field.
Once again, too many of Michael Pineda's pitches wandered toward the middle of home plate on Saturday afternoon, and that recurring trend has the Yankees wondering if he really will be able to fix the problem at the Major League level.
The Yankees' designated-hitter dilemma seems like it became much less of an issue when Alex Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran both hit the ball out of the ballpark.
A-Rod welcomes himself back from DL with HR, bat flip
In the literal sense, this was a loss for CC Sabathia and the Yankees, though the big left-hander could be excused if he had difficulty feigning disappointment with seven innings of two-hit ball and no earned runs against the Blue Jays' stacked lineup.
Edwin Encarnacion drove in a pair of runs with a third-inning single, which proved to be sufficient for J.A. Happ, whose sterling effort helped lift the Blue Jays to a 3-1 victory over the Yankees on Thursday at Yankee Stadium.
The first results from Alex Rodriguez's return to the designated-hitter slot did not wow anyone, but as the Yankees slugger continues to work on his timing, he is happy to be getting those reps at the big league level.
The Yankees made a series of roster moves prior to Thursday's game, highlighted by Alex Rodriguez being activated and Chasen Shreve being placed on the disabled list.
Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-2 with a mammoth two-run home run against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats at ARM & HAMMER Park on Wednesday night in the second game of his rehab stint with Double-A Trenton.

NY Mets

The morning after being ejected for throwing behind Chase Utley, Noah Syndergaard was already making his case for a quick return to the mound.
Steven Matz works fast -- faster than any other starting pitcher in the Major Leagues. The Mets' coaching staff praises him for it. But in New York's 6-4 loss to the White Sox on Tuesday night at Citi Field, he might have gotten ahead of himself.
Despite trailing for the majority of Tuesday's contest, the White Sox claimed a 6-4 victory over the Mets and snapped their seven-game losing streak, thanks to a go-ahead two-run homer from infielder Tyler Saladino in the eighth inning.

David Wright received an injection Tuesday to help alleviate some of the discomfort caused by a herniated disk in his neck. Mets manager Terry Collins said that the shot needs 48 hours to take effect and that the team is still waiting until this weekend's series in Miami to see if the injury could land the third baseman on the disabled list.
After acquiring James Loney from the Padres for cash considerations on Saturday, the Mets officially activated the first baseman on Tuesday. Loney made his first start, manning first base and batting sixth against White Sox starter Mat Latos.
