The New York Yankees have remained healthy within what is possible at the end of August in the MLB, just when they had a 13-win streak.
How are the Yankees doing on the Wild Card?
The Mules have the same number of victories as the Red Sox (77), but remain above due to having 3 fewer losses (56), all because they are not consistent on the schedule.
Aaron Boone hopes to see Andrew Velasquez on the bench with the return of Gleyber Torres.
Boone is not disappointed in what he saw in Andrew Velazquez and does not want him to return to the minor leagues, but instead sees him as a loyal replacement for Torres when they want to give him rest.
Giancarlo Stanton is in “MVP mode” or “Miami Marlins mode.”
Stanton has been hitting a lot in the last 30 games, just since he began playing defense on August 30 against the Miami Marlins in the National League.
In his last 30 games he is hitting .320, with 9 homers, 25 RBIs, 33 hits, 13 BBs and 19 runs scored.
Gerrit Cole made history with the New York Mules
Gerrit cole became the third pitcher in the history of the Yankees with an outing of 15 or more strikeouts with 0 walks. The others are Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda.
Cole leads the MLB in games with 10 or more strikeouts this season, totaling 9 games of the same magnitude. Notably, he resumed the overall strikeout lead again.
Randy Johnson is the game leader with 12 strikeouts without walks in history with a total of 15, however, Gerrit cole It has 12 equal exits and still has a long way to go from the hill.
Cole ended up throwing 7 innings with 15 fans without BB and with one run allowed on 116 pitches and 78 strikes. He now has a 2.73 ERA with 215 strikeouts in 155 innings.

Corey Kluber’s return to the Yankees rotation
Kluber had a bad start, but not super bad after all, he did well until the fourth inning when he allowed a grand slam. He ended up throwing 4 innings with 5 runs and 6 strikeouts, the game was no decision.
Yankees seek a new role for Luis Gil in the majors
According to Aaron Boone, Gil is coming out of the bullpen at Triple-A, looking to adapt to a role where he comes out of the bullpen to make long-term starts.
It’s no secret that being a starter with New York Yankees It’s pretty tough for the rookie, at least these days when they have Jordan Montogomey, Gerrit Cole, Nestor Cortés Jr, Jameson Taillon, Corey Kluber and Andrew Heaney. In addition, a return of Luis Severino and Domingo Germán is approaching.
Zack Britton out for the rest of the season
Britton had to undergo surgery to remove a malignant mass from his left elbow, so he will not pitch more in the regular season.
