The New York Yankees aren't going to be forced to pay Major League Baseball's luxury tax for the first time ever.According to the Associated Press (h/t ESPN.com) http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , the Bronx Bombers are on pace to finish below the $197 million payroll threshold this season, meaning they won't have to pay the tax for the first time since it was instituted in 2003. They are still spending a significant amount of money with the luxury tax payroll up from $178.8 million at the start of the season to $192.1 million, but it is low enough to avoid the penalty.The AP noted the Boston Red Sox and Washington Nationals are the only teams on pace to pay the tax in 2018.The ability to avoid the luxury tax penalty also has implications for the upcoming offseason, as the report pointed out the Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers will each reset their base tax rates from 50 percent of their total over the threshold to just 20 percent by avoiding it this year.That figures to put both big-market powers in ideal positions to add to their already talented rosters during free agency.New York's big splash this offseason was trading forGiancarloStanton to play alongside Aaron Judge, who has missed significant time with a fractured wrist. It is nine games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East but two games ahead of the Oakland Athletics for the first wild-card spot and a comfortable eight games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays.While the division is essentially out of reach at this point, the Yankees can at least take solace knowing they are headed to the playoffs and won't have to worry about paying the luxury tax.That, in turn, could lead to some marquee additions next offseason with less tax concerns and a threshold that is increasing to $206 million. BALTIMORE — The New York Yankees can complete a four-game sweep of the Baltimore Orioles in a prime-time series finale on Sunday at Camden Yards.Entering the series, the Yankees and Orioles had split their 12 meetings this season. However, New York won three straight against Baltimore this weekend Danny Salazar Jersey , including both games of a Saturday doubleheader. The Yankees (82-47) are a season-high 35 games above .500. Meanwhile, Baltimore (37-93) is jockeying with Kansas City for the top pick in the MLB Draft. Article continues below ...“We’re just trying to do what we do best and score runs,” Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks said.The Yankees are also getting a spark from rookie Miguel Andujar, who homered and had four RBIs in the first game Saturday. He is batting .300 and making a strong case for Rookie of the Year, not that he is thinking about personal accolades.“There are more important things right now,” Andujar said through an interpreter. “It’s very important to win games and we have a bigger goal in mind. That’s the focus right now. At the end of it all, if it happens, it happens. We are trying accomplish something bigger here than individual awards.” The Orioles, who have lost seven straight games, have traded key veterans as they begin a complete rebuild of their franchise. They’re already experiencing growing pains and have endured seven losing streaks of six games or more this season. Right-hander Luis Severino (16-6 http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , 3.28 ERA) will start Sunday for the Yankees. After a dominant first half of the season, he is 2-4 in his last six starts, allowing seven home runs during that stretch.Severino was much better in his last outing against the Blue Jays when he allowed two runs and six hits with eight strikeouts in five innings. “I feel pretty good. Most of the game I was dominating,” Severino said after the game. “I feel good, my body is strong and my confidence is way up.”Severino is 4-1 with a 3.33 ERA in nine appearances (seven starts) against Baltimore. New York is going to need him to maintain his former solid form during the stretch run.The Yankees still trail the Red Sox in the American League East but are in the driver’s seat for one of the two wild-card berths. “We have to find the right adjustments in there to get him back on track,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said of Severino’s recent struggles. Dylan Bundy (7-12, 5.31) is having similar struggles for Baltimore. He has allowed 29 hits and six homers for 22 runs (21 earned) in 14 1/3 innings in his last three starts.Bundy has also struggled to keep the ball in the park, giving up 15 homers in his last eight starts, registering a whopping 9.08 ERA during that stretch. Bundy allowed seven runs and seven hits in just four innings of his last start against the Blue Jays, losing his third straight decision.“It’s tough Edwin Encarnacion Jersey , but we’re all going to have these stretches,” Bundy said after the game. “You just try to limit them. Right now, this one is going on for quite some time. Hopefully, in the future I can figure this out quicker and get better faster.”Bundy is 2-4 with a 6.03 ERA in eight appearances, including six starts, against the Yankees. He took a loss to New York on July 11. Showalter is also trying to find ways to get him back on track. “We’ve given him extra days quite a few times,” Showalter said. “We’ve attacked that and we’ll continue to look at if we need to do it again.”
