New York Yankees

The Yankees didn't look like a playoff-ready team against the Blue Jays

Not only will they be hosting their final regular-season homestand of the season, but the front-office, pro scouts, coaches and Aaron Boone will be meeting to make some decisions.

The Bombers are closing in on their first American League East division title in seven years, but they will head into October with so many questions.

Instead of a playoff team fighting for the best record in baseball, with their closer still in the bullpen, the Yankees fell to the Blue Jays 6-5 in the bottom of the 12th inning on Bo Bichette’s walk-off home run off Tyler Lyons.

The Yankees still have a magic number of five to eliminate the Rays from the AL East competition, but the Dodgers and Astros gained ground on them.

As he did Tuesday night in Detroit, by leaving Chapman in the pen and using Luis Cessa and Lyons in those high-leverage late innings on Friday, Boone clearly is erring on the side of being healthy.

DJ LeMahieu struggled on scoops at first base, Gleyber Torres made a shaky throw to first, both earning errors.
