A three-game showdown against the Braves' inexperienced pitching staff seemed to get the Yankees' bats back on track. The contributions up and down the batting order were so widespread, even Stephen Drew's batting average bubbled above the Mendoza line.
Jacoby Ellsbury, Chase Headley and Stephen Drew each homered to support Nathan Eovaldi's career-high ninth straight win, leading the Yankees to a 20-6 rout of the Braves on Sunday at Turner Field that completed a series sweep.
With Mark Teixeira out of the lineup for an indefinite period of time, the Yankees have asked Alex Rodriguez to resume working out at first base, providing manager Joe Girardi with another option behind rookie Greg Bird.
Luis Severino has only made five turns through the big league rotation, but the Yankees are already impressed by how well the rookie right-hander seems to fit into their clubhouse. To put it simply, they have become convinced that he belongs.
There were no signs of unwanted flinches as Bryan Mitchell returned to a big league mound late on Friday evening, firing 1 1/3 innings in his first appearance after being struck in the face with a line drive. The Yankees right-hander counted that as a victory.
CC Sabathia seems to be garnering increased attention from shutterbugs of late, but the Yankees left-hander said there is nothing incriminating about a photo being circulated that showed him smoking what he said was a cigar from an Atlanta hotel balcony.
Didi Gregorius' seventh-inning double ended Matt Wisler's night and provided sufficient support to Luis Severino, who helped the Yankees claim a 3-1 win over the Braves on Saturday night at Turner Field.
The Yankees knew that they were signing up for an unfinished product when they acquired Didi Gregorius in a three-way trade this past offseason, choosing to bet on his high ceiling. They may not have expected that gamble to pay off so soon.
The reception was warm, the runs were in plentiful supply and Yankees catcher Brian McCann was able to enjoy his happy homecoming on Friday, homering to slap an exclamation point on his first game as a visitor at Turner Field.
Didi Gregorius hit a three-run homer and collected a career-high six RBIs, Brian McCann celebrated his return to Atlanta with a three-run shot of his own and the Yankees rolled to a 15-4 victory over the Braves on Friday night at Turner Field.
In what seemed like it would have been a major upset earlier in the month, Chris Capuano pulled on his pinstriped jersey Tuesday afternoon and took part in the Yankees' team photo at Yankee Stadium, digitally preserved for all time as a member of a roster fighting for its playoff future.
The Yankees are fighting through one of their weakest offensive stretches of the season, and as they sit two games behind the Blue Jays in the American League East, general manager Brian Cashman is hopeful that Thursday's off-day will wake up the snoozing bats.
The Yankees are in a pennant race, and with each passing day, the American League East's top spot becomes more competitive. Returning from the disabled list, Michael Pineda was one of those in the rotation who said he understands the importance of his responsibilities. But after a 6-2 loss to the Astros on Wednesday, Pineda indicated he felt like he didn't do his part.
You could float the case that the Astros showcase some of the best starting pitching that the American League has to offer, but the Yankees didn't play that card to excuse a three-game series in which they were outscored by more than two touchdowns in their own ballpark.
Collin McHugh pitched well into the seventh inning and Evan Gattis homered twice as the Astros defeated the Yankees, 6-2, on Wednesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, taking the rubber contest of a three-game set.

CC Sabathia thinks he can be back in action in September. The left-handed pitcher got a second opinion on his right knee Tuesday at Hospital for Special Surgery, and was relieved when Dr. Answorth Allen didn't have any new updates.
The timing of the deep bone bruise that hobbled Mark Teixeira for a week allowed the Yankees to take a good look at Greg Bird, rated as their No. 4 prospect by MLBPipeline.com, which should have paid dividends for the short term as well as the future.

Sean Gilmartin survived April through August on the active roster, becoming a trusted member of the bullpen. Because rosters expand on Tuesday, he no longer needs to worry about a demotion sending him back to the Twins; even if he doesn't make the playoff roster, Gilmartin will remain Mets property.
Addison Reed stepped into a Mets uniform for the first time on Monday. Bobby Parnell should return from the disabled list on Tuesday. With those two, and with Jeurys Familia and Tyler Clippard in tow, the Mets will spend September with four relievers boasting significant closing experience. If the bullpen was a significant concern for the Mets during the second half of August, manager Terry Collins is convinced it no longer is.
A quartet of familiar faces will be among the Mets' first wave of September callups on Tuesday. The Mets on Sunday informed catcher Kevin Plawecki, infielder Eric Campbell, and outfielders Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Eric Young that they will be recalled as soon as rosters expand Tuesday.
Shoring up the seventh inning lingers as New York's primary focus at the moment. But another average start from Noah Syndergaard suggests that the Mets could have decisions to make regarding the rotation as well, even if they're not ready to make them yet.
Rarely does Jeurys Familia allow emotion to escape him. One of the National League's most effective closers also tends to be one of the quietest. But something stirred within Familia after he unleashed the final pitch of Sunday's 5-4 win over the Red Sox, a 100-mph fastball that fled past Mookie Betts, zoomed through the upper third of the strike zone and popped into Anthony Recker's mitt.
Their brief stumble earlier this weekend squarely in the past, the Mets resumed their march toward a playoff bid with a 5-4 win Sunday over the Red Sox at Citi Field.

With days to spare until the waiver Trade Deadline, the first-place Mets have addressed their most glaring weakness heading into the stretch run.
