Well, then, there's this: Even with third baseman Miguel Andujar suffering a potentially season-ending injury before the season reached April, the Yankees will be better off in the long term having allowed the third baseman Machado to move to Ron Burgundy's hometown.

It was announced after Monday's 3-1 win over the Tigers that Andujar his a small labrum tear in his shoulder and that he will basically be shut down for two weeks.

Andujar finished second in A.L. Rookie of the Year race last season after hitting.297/.328/.527 with 27 homers and 92 RBI in 149 games.

While the Yankees intend to use DJ LeMahieu at third base going forward, Wade should be ready to make an impact in any way he can. If that doesn't work, he could require surgery that would "compromise his season", Boone acknowledged Monday night.

Stanton went 2 for 8 with seven walks as the Yankees lost two of three in their opening series. Tyler Wade will now get some playing time in the infield after being called up from the minor leagues.

The right-hander last faced the Tigers on September 1 in NY when he allowed one run on seven hits over seven innings in a 2-1 victory.

Stanton and Andujar joined Didi Gregorius, Jacoby Ellsbury, Aaron Hicks, Dellin Betances and Luis Severino, among others, on the IL.

Clint Frazier was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Stanton's place on the roster.

Not exactly the power-packed lineup the Bronx Bombers envisioned this season after setting a major league record with 267 home runs previous year. Boone had told him near the end of the exhibition season not to push it. Be sure to tune in Tuesday at 6:35 p.m. ET for another game against Detroit.

Pitcher, Domingo German exceeded expectations and pitched five scoreless innings.
