Why Yankees made a decision to give struggling Aaron Hicks a day off

DJ LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 89 hits and 48 RBI while Gleyber Torres and Luke Voit have combined for 146 hits and 89 RBI.

NY sits atop the AL East after a three-game sweep of second-place Tampa Bay, helped by solid performances from a cast of unlikely fill-ins, including Cameron Maybin.

The already potent Yankees lineup will get a massive boost with the return of Aaron Judge. After their first rough patch since the opening weeks of the season, the Yankees have scored 39 runs in their past five games, and they head into the weekend after extending their homer streak to 22 games on Wednesday in beating the second-place Tampa Bay Rays.

After missing over 50 games for the Yankees, it seems like Aaron Judge is headed back to the Bronx and will hopefully be in the lineup tonight or at some point this weekend.

Paxton is also looking to redeem himself after enduring one of his worst starts with the Yankees at Houston on April 10, giving up five runs and eight hits - two of them home runs - in four innings of an 8-6 defeat. "But feel like he's physically in a really good spot, and he has been now for a while, and feels ready to go, and I know he'll impact us in a big way". Five of his 11 starts he has allowed one earned run or less. After that series, they'll host the Toronto Blue Jays for a three-game series to close out the homestand. "We're in the major leagues", Judge said Thursday night.

However, recently, Prince Harry and Markle chose to create a new charity and focus on it. The brothers and Kate were fine until Meghan. "Very sad, indeed", one netizen wrote.

As for Boone? He plans to take Judge's return slowly - beyond the batting leadoff thing, mind you - and wants to make sure they add him back into the mix in a smart way. He walked two and struck out eight.

Following the Yankees' 10-6 win over the Astros on Thursday, left-handed reliever Nestor Cortes Jr. was optioned to Triple-A in the corresponding roster move to clear space for Judge.

Coupled with their current losing streak is the fact that the Astros are just 1-5 in their last six games played at Yankee Stadium.

Cortes is 2-0 with a 4.09 ERA in seven appearances for NY this year. Valdez will be opposing the Yankees for the first time.
