New York Post | George A. King III: The Yankees had been dropping like flies for a while but they’re finally getting healthy. A bunch of players are on their way back and probably leading to a roster crunch. Brandon Drury continued his rehab with the RailRiders yesterday, while Clint Frazier continued his with the Tarpons. Greg Bird took batting practice on the field and Aaron Boone said they’re going to start planning when he’ll be playing in games. Tommy Kahnle also played catch and Jacoby Ellsbury...well:
Per Boone:— Marc Carig (@MarcCarig) April 29, 2018
Kahnle played catch today, but not Warren. Drury is playing but no decision on when he comes back. Bird hit on the field yesterday for the first time. Ellsbury has not yet progressed to that point.
MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: Part of the reason the Yankees are going to have a roster crunch soon is because of Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres. Thanks to injuries and general ineffectiveness, both were called up (probably) a bit earlier than the Yankees expected. Since coming up though, they’ve done nothing but impress. They’re both showing they belong in the majors, so the Yankees are going to have to make some tough decisions.
New York Post | George A. King III: One potential victim of the upcoming roster crunch? Neil Walker. He and Tyler Wade not playing well is essentially the reason that Gleyber Torres was called up and Torres isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. While he’s played okay filling in for Tyler Austin, I’m not sure it’s been enough to save his job, especially with Austin playing so well before his suspension.
For The Win | Andrew Joseph: Anyone watching yesterday’s game knows Angel Hernandez’s strike zone was....complete garbage. Then again, even if you weren’t watching but knew Hernandez was calling the game, you’d probably know that as well. CC Sabathia ended up pitching a hell of a game yesterday so it didn’t matter, but Sabathia got into a somehwat heated exchange with Hernandez at the end of the third. Sabathia is seen saying “don’t talk to me. Call [bunting] strikes!”
Another day, another record

#startspreadingthenews yankees win great start by going 7strong innings bullpen with the big walk and with the clutch 2 ♂️ homerun ..... And with the Save...— Sir Didi Gregorius (@DidiG18) April 30, 2018
Didi out here challenging the box score, unless he was just that much happier about Giancarlo Stanton’s (who is now a Yankee) walk in the second instead of his double in the fourth that led to Gary Sanchez’s home run.
