LaMaheiu was held out of the lineup for rest Saturday.

The Yankees, who on Thursday clinched their first AL East title since 2012, have fought through injury after injury this season but can ill afford to enter the postseason starting October 4 without Torres, who is slashing.284/.343/.546 with 38 homers and 90 RBIs while anchoring the middle of New York's batting order. Torres was not in the lineup for the 7-2 win and also won't play Sunday, but he said he feels good.

"The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that New York Yankees pitcher Domingo Germán has been placed on Administrative Leave under the Joint MLB-MLBPA Domestic Violence Policy". Under the policy, a player can remain on leave for up to seven days unless the league and the players' union agree to an extension.

"We want to do this a couple times (before the regular season ends) and he's certainly onboard with it and wants to do it", Boone said. "But still, once you kind of get that news, because you know MRIs are going to find things, so the fact it came back clean kind of confirmed what we had hoped".

Torres slipped after backhanding a grounder Friday night, prompting an audible gasp from the crowd at Yankee Stadium.

West tossed Boone from third base, and Rehak - a recent call-up from Triple-A - ejected Yankees hitting coach Marcus Thames.

Torres, 22, is batting.284 and has a team-leading 38 home runs to go with 90 RBIs. The plan, Boone said, is for Sabathia to be used as a reliever once in each series. Boone is "confident" Sánchez will be ready for the playoff opener.
