Mike Tauchman from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for left-hander Phillip Diehl.The 28-year-old Tauchman made his major league debut in 2017 and hit just .153 in 59 at-bats in 52 career games with Colorado. Tauchman spent the majority of the 2018 season with Triple-A Albuquerque and hit .323 with 20 homers and 81 RBIs in 112 games.Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tauchman is an option to make the opening day roster.“Can play multiple positions out in the outfield Dave Dravecky Jersey ,” Boone said. “A guy that does have options, so we’ll kind of talk through it and see which way we want to go.”The 24-year-old Diehl, a 27th-round pick by the Yankees in 2016, attended spring training as a non-roster invitee and posted a 4.50 ERA with 17 strikeouts in nine relief appearances.“A lot of emotions going through my mind,” Diehl said. “Got another opportunity to potentially pitch in the big leagues with the Rockies and I’m looking forward to it.”To make room on the 40-man roster Saturday, the Yankees placed left-hander Jordan Montgomery on the 60-day injured list.New York also re-assigned left-hander Nestor Cortes Jr., outfielder Estevan Florial and right-hander David Hale to the minor league camp. The National League regular season has been extended by a day, and baseball fans could not be more excited by the development.Fans will be treated to two tiebreaaker games because the National League Central and West Division titles have not been decided after the 162-game championship season.The Milwaukee Brewers (95-67) and Chicago Cubs (95-67) will meet Monday at 1 p.m. ET to decide the Central Division crown. The Cubs will host the game at Wrigley Field and will be televised by ESPN. Jhoulys Chacin is the likely starter for the bullpen-dependent Brewers, while Jose Quintana gets the start for the Cubs.The Colorado Rockies (91-71) and Los Angeles Dodgers (91-71) will play at Dodger Stadium and that game will also be televised by ESPN at 4 p.m. German Marquez will start for the Rockies and Walker Buehler will get the ball for the Dodgers."Our goal is to win the division," said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "With Walker rested, having an extra day鈥攔ight now, he's our best. To win this game, to win the division鈥攊t's in our hands."All four teams recorded sizable victories on Sunday to force the double-tiebreaker scenario. The winner of the Brewers-Cubs showdown will earn the No. 1 seed in the National League playoffs, while the winner of the Rockies-Dodgers tiebreaker will have the No. 2 seed and have homefield advantage over the NL East champion Atlanta Braves in the Division series.The two losers of Monday's showdown games will meet in the NL wild-card game Tuesday, and the NL Central representative will host their opponent from the NL West in that one-game playoff.The winner of that wild-card game will face the NL Central winner in the other divisional series.Postseason ScheduleNational League TiebreakersMonday, October 1, Brewers at Cubs, 1:05 ET, ESPNMonday, October 1, Rockies at Dodgers, 4:09 p.m. ET, ESPNWild-Card GamesTuesday, October 2, NL West loser at NL Central loser, 8 p.m. ET, ESPNWednesday, October 3, A's at Yankees, 8 p.m. ET, TBSDivision SeriesNLDSThursday, October 4, NLDS A, Game 1, FS1 or MLBNThursday, October 4, NLDS B, Game 1, FS1 or MLBNFriday, October 5 NLDS A, Game 2, FS1 or MLBNFriday, October 5, NLDS B, Game 2 http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , FS1 or MLBNSunday, October 7, NLDS A, Game 3, FS1 or MLBNSunday, October 7, NLDS B, Game 3, FS1 or MLBNMonday, October 8, NLDS A, Game 4*, FS1Monday, October 8, NLDS B, Game 4*, FS,1Wednesday, October 10, NLDS A, Game 5*, FS1Wednesday, October 10, NLDS B, Game 5*, FS1*If necessaryALDSFriday, October 5, Yankees/A's at Red Sox, Game 1, TBSFriday, October 5, Indians at Astros, Game 1, TBSSaturday, October 6 Yankees/A's at Red Sox, Game 2, TBSSaturday, October 6, Indians at Astros, Game 2, TBSMonday, October 8, Red Sox at Yankees/A's, Game 3, TBSMonday Brandon Belt Jersey , October 8, Astros at Indians, Game 3, TBSTuesday, October 9, Red Sox at Yankees/A's, Game 4*, TBSTuesday, October 9, Astros at Indians, Game 4*, TBSThursday, October 11, Yankees/A's at Red Sox, Game 5*, TBSThursday, October 11, Indians at Astros, Game 5*, TBS*If necessaryLeague Championship SeriesNLCSFriday, October 12, Game 1, FOX or FS1Saturday, October 13, Game 2, FOX or FS1Monday, October 15, Game 3, FOX or FS1Tuesday, October 16, Game 4, FOX or FS1Wednesday, October 17, Game 5*, FOX or FS1Friday, October 19, Game 6*, FOX or FS1Saturday, October 20, Game 7*, FOX or FS1*If necessaryALCSSaturday, October 13, Game 1, TBSSunday, October 14 http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , Game 2, TBSTuesday, October 16, Game 3, TBSWednesday, October 17, Game 4, TBSThursday, October 18, Game 5*, TBSSaturday, October 20, Game 6*, TBSSunday, October 21, Game 7*, TBS*If necessaryWORLD SERIESTuesday, October 23, Game 1, FOXWednesday, October 24, Game 2, FOXFriday, October 26, Game 3 , FOXSaturday, October 27, Game 4, FOXSunday, October 28, Game 5*, FOXTuesday, October 30 Game 6*, FOXWednesday, October 31 Game 7*, FOXThe two tiebreakers and all postseason games can be live-streamed at MLB.TV.The American League did not have any of the end-of-season drama that took place in the NL.Even though the New York Yankees won 100 games, they finished a distant second to the Boston Red Sox in the American League East and they will host the American League wild-card game against the Oakland A's Wednesday night.
