Around the Empire: Yankees news - 6/23/19

Yankees improving their trade stock; Maybin still ticketed for the injured list; German could return for Subway Series; Encarnacion can play a solid first base

MLB: New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports | Brendan Kuty: Ahead of the July 31 deadline, several young players have improved their trade value. The list includes Clint Frazier and Thairo Estrada, who spent time up with the Yankees. If the Yankees choose to move any of these players, they will certainly be able to ask for a significant haul in return.

New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: Cameron Maybin exited last night’s game with a Grade 2 calf strain, and Aaron Boone said he would land on the injured list. Yet Maybin remained on the active roster today. Was he feeling better? No, the Yankees just hadn’t completed a roster move. It’s still TBD, but one might be able to read the tea leaves...

Interesting, very interesting. | Pete Caldera: For good news on the injury front, we turn to Domingo German. The right-hander talked about how good he feels, adding that he will start a rehab assignment next week. Getting German back will give the team a boost and help ease the burden of the bullpen. The best case scenario appears to have German returning when the Yankees visit Citi Field in early July.

New York Post | Dan Martin: When the Yankees acquired Edwin Encarnacion, they envisioned him as the team’s designated hitter. He can pick it at first base though, at least enough to spell Luke Voit for a game or two. The 36-year-old showed off his solid glove on Friday night, illustrating that he isn’t a one-dimensional player.
