With the New York Yankees coming off a series where they took two games from Baltimore, here’s the news and notes you need to know.

In Monday, April 30 2017’s edition of New York Yankees Bronx Bomber Buzz, we take a look at an update regarding Gary Sanchez as well as Bryan Mitchell making history on Sunday afternoon.

First off, Yankees superstar catcher Gary Sanchez could be making his long-awaited return to the diamond as early as this weekend against the Chicago Cubs.

Sanchez will begin his rehab assignment tomorrow with the Yankees Triple-A affiliate RailRiders where he will aim to get back in the baseball mode.

It will certainly be a sight to see Sanchez and his aura take over the most historic stadium in all of baseball, Wrigley Field.

Next up, New York Yankees reliever Bryan Mitchell made history on Sunday afternoon when he took control of first base.

When Mitchell was placed at first base during a double switch, he made history by becoming the first Yankee to play a position other than pitcher since Ron Guidry did it way back in 1983.

“It was definitely fun,” Mitchell said. “It was something that was new to me, going from pitching to the field and back to pitching. You never know what to expect. That’s part of the game, so you’ve got to be ready to do whatever.”

The final piece of news comes from the waiver wire being that the Texas Rangers claimed Pete Kozma off waivers from the New York Yankees, an interesting move to say the least.

That is all the top news regarding the New York Yankees today. Don’t forget the Yankees look to begin their series against the Blue Jays with a victory tonight at 7:05 p.m. ET on YES.
