NBC SportsJose Trevino is dealing with a Grade 2 strain of his left quad.

Trevino has received a PRP injection and is expected to miss extended time. Carlos Narvaez was called up when Trevino landed on the IL, though Austin Wells should handle the bulk of the starts for now. Now that Trevino is facing an extended absence, it's unclear if the Yankees would consider giving Ben Rice time behind the plate. If not, they could look to the trade market this month.

NBC SportsBen Rice socked a go-ahead three-run homer in the top of the ninth inning before the Yankees collapsed against the Orioles on Sunday.

This one was a rollercoaster ride. Craig Kimbrel walked back-to-back batters to begin the ninth and Rice made him pay on a pitch which got a little too much of the plate. The good feelings didn't last long, though, as the Orioles staged a comeback of their own in the bottom of the ninth. As for Rice, he now has six homers through his first 24 major league games and he continues to find himself in some prime real estate in the Yankees' lineup. He's well worth a pickup in leagues where he's still available.

NBC SportsCraig Kimbrel blew a save Sunday against the Yankees after allowing a three-run homer to Ben Rice in the top of the ninth.

Kimbrel found himself in immediate trouble after walking back-to-back batters to begin the frame before serving up the go-ahead blast to Rice. The Yankees would go on to blow the lead in the bottom of the ninth due to a pair of defensive miscues, so Kimbrel actually got the win. Baseball, man. This was Kimbrel's first appearance in a week and he had allowed just one run over his last 21 innings coming into Sunday's action, so fantasy managers shouldn't overact to one bad outing.

NBC SportsTrent Grisham went 3-for-3 with a homer, two RBI, and a walk Sunday against the Orioles.

A rare big day for Grisham with the bat, as he drove in a run with a single in the second inning before depositing a pitch into the right-field seats in the fifth inning. He drew a walk to lead off the ninth and came around to score on Ben Rice's go-ahead homer against Craig Kimbrel. Days like this one have been few and far between for Grisham this season, but he remains valuable in real life due to his outstanding defense.
