BOSTON — The harshest penalties from Wednesday’s benches-clearing incident between the Red Sox and Yankees were handed to Joe Kelly and Tyler Austin, but the interaction between New York third-base coach Phil Nevin and Boston manager Alex Cora remained a hot topic on Thursday afternoon.

At one point Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap , Cora appeared to tell Nevin, “Get back in your box,” moving his index fingers in the shape of the third-base coaching area. Nevin was among those ejected from the game, along with Kelly, Austin and Yankees reliever Tommy Kahnle.

“When I was on the field, I did say something to him, absolutely,” Nevin said. “Right to his face. To a couple of their coaches, I think. Just let them know how I felt about what happened with Austin and that was it. At the time, there was zero response. In fact, maybe a little backpedal, if you will.”

Cora said on Thursday that he believed Nevin was out of line.

“After the whole thing, he was screaming at our dugout,” Cora said. “I don’t know if he was screaming specifically at me, and I took exception. I don’t want to say I overreacted, but that’s not me. I think for 10 games or whatever I’ve managed, you guys have seen me very calm over there.

“There’s something about chain of command. If we’re going to let everybody be screaming in situations like that, it wasn’t a good situation in the beginning, and it can be worse.”

When a reporter relayed Cora’s comment about his violation of the “chain of command,” Nevin balked.

“I saw a gesture made to me. Maybe I saw it wrong,” Nevin said. “I guess those things happen, too. But that’s what set me off. I saw something directed at me when I was going back to third. But if you want to talk about chain of command, then [don’t] tell somebody to get back into their box. Everybody saw that, that’s pretty unprofessional.”

Cora said that he would not want anyone in a Red Sox uniform to behave as Nevin did.

“I don’t want any of my coaches to be screaming at Aaron Boone or any of their players,” Cora said. “I took exception. I made a signal. I know Men’s 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey  everybody saw it. Out of character for me, but I still didn’t like the fact that he was pointing at me and screaming at me.”

Nevin, who played against Cora for many years and said he congratulated him this spring on his managerial hire, said that there would be no need for the rivals to hash out their difference of opinion.

“No, I don’t need to talk to him,” Nevin said. “It’s not how the Red Sox [and] Yankees do things, right? I’m still learning.”

Giancarlo Stanton misplays popup into RBI 2 Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey B

BOSTON — Giancarlo Stanton joined the ranks of the many outfielders who have experienced difficulty patrolling left field at Fenway Park, misjudging a Jackie Bradley Jr. fly ball that fell for a ground-rule RBI double in the Yankees’ 6-3 loss to the Red Sox on Thursday evening.

The play occurred in the third inning, when Bradley lifted a pop fly off Sonny Gray. Stanton crossed the foul line in pursuit, skidding to a halt as he placed his right hand on the wall, then appeared surprised to see the ball drop several feet behind him and bounce into the grandstand.

BOSTON — Gi Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey ancarlo Stanton joined the ranks of the many outfielders who have experienced difficulty patrolling left field at Fenway Park, misjudging a Jackie Bradley Jr. fly ball that fell for a ground-rule RBI double in the Yankees’ 6-3 loss to the Red Sox on Thursday evening.

“I had it as three or four r Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap ows in the seats,” Stanton said. “I was about ready to jump over the fence. It just kicked back on me.”

The game marked Stanton’s eighth career game in left field, all of which have come this season, and his third consecutive start playing the position at Fenway.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said that the play was made more difficult by the conditions, with rain falling steadily through the first few innings. At first pitch, the wind was blowing out to left field at 15 mph.

“You’re dealing with the wall over there, where the rain is starting to go sideways and you’ve got a lot of wind,” Boone said. “It’s just a challenging play where you’re kind of dealing with the wall. With that wall being right next to the foul line, it’s just a tricky kind of a play. It’s just one of those things that’s going to happen now and then on a difficult night.”

Stanton refused to use the weather as an excuse for the play, which allowed Eduardo Nunez to score Boston’s fifth run. Bradley later came home after a wild pitch and a groundout.

“It doesn’t matter what was the factor,” Stanton said. “What matters is, it gave them Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap  more runs and docked Sonny’s ERA. It doesn’t help the squad either way.”

BOSTON — There was no noticeable carryover from the hubbub of one day prior, a spirited affair during which members of the Red Sox and Yankees exchanged punches across the infield turf. Rick Porcello‘s sparkling effort Thursday seemed to take some of that fight out of the visitors early on.

“To come in here and get this one after last night and after getting beat up in game one would have been nice, but we’ll turn the page,” manager Aaron Boone said. “We have to turn the page, and these guys will.”

Video: NYY@BOS: Judge breaks up no-no with a double in 7th

Porcello permitted two hits over seven frames, striking out six without a walk as Boston opened a season 10-2 for the first time since 1952. The right-hander retired the first 11 batters on 49 pitches before drilling Giancarlo Stanton‘s elbow guard for a hit-by-pitch. Porcello then set down the next four hitters, leading into a 45-minute rain delay prior to the sixth inning.

“He was attacking us,” Sanchez said through an interpreter. “He was getting ahead early and I think that made the difference. He had a great night tonight.”

New York starter Sonny Gray watched most of that action from the clubhouse. Gray turned in a clunker, charged with six runs and seven hits over three-plus innings. Boston assembled a four-run second inning against the right-hander, with Sandy Leon, Mookie Betts and Mitch Moreland driving home runs.

Video: NYY@BOS: Moreland smacks an RBI single to left field

Gray did not have much help from his defense. Second baseman Tyler Wade made a wild throw home in the second inning that allowed a run to score, and Sanchez seemed to have difficulty syncing thoughts with his pitcher. Gray shook off signs repeatedly, tying a career high by uncorking three wild pitches in his 68-pitch outing.

Video: NYY@BOS: Benintendi plates Leon on a fielder’s choice

“Sometimes throughout the course of a game and throughout the course of certain innings, you kind of have an idea,” Gray said. “Depending on what happened earlier in the inning, where runners are and whatnot, it can change. I just didn’t execute very w Men’s Authentic Custom Stitched Los Angeles Angels Road Gray Baseball Jersey Sale ell. It made it hard all the way around.”

Jackie Bradley Jr. added a third-inning ground-rule double that eluded Stanton in left field, and Betts knocked home another run with a fielder’s choice. That wrapped the scoring on Gray, who has lost three of four career starts at Fenway Park and is 0-3 against the Red Sox since joining the Yankees last July.

“Sonny has a lot of ideas about how he wants to attack certain things,” Boone said. “It could have been [Gray and Sanchez] just struggling to get on that same page together. It’s something that’s got to happen, and we feel like will happen.”

Domingo German pitched three scoreless innings of one-hit ball in relief for the Yankees, who dropped a game below .500 at 6-7.

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
The Yankees avoided being shut out in the nint Custom Angels Jersey h inning, loading the bases via two walks and a double error charged to third baseman Rafael Devers. Sanchez cleared the bags, scorching a rocket double to center field that came off his bat at 114.2 mph. That prompted Red Sox manager Alex Cora to call upon closer Craig Kimbrel, who retired the next three hitters to log his fourth save.

“You know how baseball is,” Sanchez said. “Until they make three outs in the ninth, we’re still in the game. Once we scored those three runs, I thought we had a chance to at least tie the game.”

SOUND SMART
Sanchez’s 32 RBIs against the Red Sox are his most against any club, and pace the Majors against Boston since the beginning of 2016. He is a .291 (21-for-71) hitter with 18 RBIs over 16 games at Fenway Park, his most RBIs at any ballpark other than Yankee Stadium.

HE SAID IT
“I had it as three or four rows in the seats. I was about ready to jump over the fence. It just kicked back on me. … It doesn’t matter what was the factor. What matters is, it gave them more runs and docked Sonny’s ERA. It doesn’t help the squad, either way.” — Stanton, on Bradley’s ground-rule double

UP NEXT
Sanchez and the Yankees return to Comerica Park for the first time since their benches-clearing incident last August, opening a four-game series against the Tigers on Friday at 7:10 p.m. ET. Coming off an effort in which he allowed a career-high 10 hits to the Orioles, left-hander Jordan Montgomery is scheduled to face right-hander Mike Fiers.

Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey Gleyber Torres could be ready to help Yankees

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has wondered how the 2017 season would have been altered had Gleyber Torres not attempted a headfirst slide into home plate. The top prospect‘s promotion seemed to be inevitable, and his presence may have removed the need for a July trade that delivered veteran infielder Todd Frazier to The Bronx.

In Cashman’s estimation, Torres had “conquered” the Eastern League and was beginning to do the same in the International League when his season ended abruptly on the afternoon of June 17, when he attempted to score from second base on a hit to right field. With Torres ag Custom Angels Baseball Jersey ain raking for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, could he provide the spark that the Yankees need?

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has wondered how the 2017 season would have been altered had Gleyber Torres not attempted a headfirst slide into home plate. The top prospect‘s promotion seemed to be inevitable, and his presence may have removed the need for a July trade that delivered veteran infielder Todd Frazier to The Bronx.

In Cashman’s estimation, Torres had “conquered” the Eastern League and was beginning to do the same in the International League when his season ended abruptly on the afternoon of June 17, when he attempted to score from second base on a hit to right field. With Torres again raking for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, could he provide the spark that the Yankees need?

According to MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal, if Torres remains in the Minors until Wednesday, he would have spent 20 days in the Minors. As a member of the 40-man roster, that would delay Torres’ free agency an additional year until the offseason of 2024-25, crediting the Yanks with six-plus years of control (the rest of this season plus six more) rather than just six.

Anything less than 20 day Men’s Authentic Custom Stitched Los Angeles Angels Road Gray Baseball Jersey Sale s in the Minors would not count as an optional assignment, which would credit the player with retroactive service time. Regardless, Cashman has repeatedly stated that the service time consideration is “not part of my evaluation process.”

“We’re trying to win ga Men’s Authentic Personalized Any Name Any Number Los Angeles Angels Home White Jersey mes,” Cashman said. “Every win for us is valuable.”

Rated as the No. 5 prospect in baseball by MLB Pipeline, the 21-year-old Torres has hit well through seven games at Triple-A, prompting speculation that he could supplant Tyler Wade in the Yankees’ infield.

Torres has batted .370/.379/.556, stroking 10 hits in 27 at-bats with a triple, homer and six RBIs. He went 2-for-3 in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s 11-1 victory at Charlotte on Thursday, and he’s played shortstop (three games), third base (three games) and second base (one game).

“I think if they called him up, he could definitely compete up there now,” RailRiders manager Bobby Mitchell told the Scranton Times-Tribune. “There’s just certain things for him to become the player he needs to become and can become. Things that he needs to refine and get better at. But it’s not just about hitting when you go up there.

“It’s about every aspect of the game that you need to master. And he’s trying and he’s doing a great job and he’s moving right along. I mean, he’s not far, obviously. I think if they called him up, I think he’d be fine. He’d probably learn on the fly.”

After winning a roster spot with a strong spring, Wade has struggled, batting .097 (3-for-3 Personalized Angels Baseball Jersey 1) with two doubles and three RBIs in 10 games. Wade also committed a throwing error in Thursday’s 6-3 loss to the Red Sox, after which manager Aaron Boone said that he is considering giving more playing time to utility man Ronald Torreyes.

Torres came into Spring Training vying for the starting second-base job, but Cashman and Boone sensed signs of rust after his nine-month layoff. He was optioned to Triple-A on March 13, and the Yanks believed that their infield would be set with Brandon Drury, Wade and Neil Walker.

“[Boone and Cashman told me] just to stay focused,” Torres said then. ‘They told me I need more at-bats and more games and be ready for another opportunity.”

That chance could be coming sooner than Torres — and the Yankees — might have anticipated.

Aaron Boone has no timetable for Brandon Dr Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey ury

DETROIT — Yankees manager Aaron Boone isn’t willing to speculate as to when third baseman Brandon Drury will rejoin his team.

But Boone made it clear on Friday that Drury, who continues to battle severe migraines and blurry vision, sounds like a completely different person since exiting last Friday’s game.

View Full Game Coverage


“It sounded like he was upbeat and in a good place,” Boone said prior to the Yankees’ series opener in Detroit. “Like, maybe there’s starting to be some answers to something that’s been an issue for him for several years.”

Acquired in a trade from the D-backs early in Spring Training, Drury left the 14-inning loss to the Orioles in the sixth inning due to impaired vision and a migraine. A day later he was placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Although Drury’s early exit didn’t seem serious at the time, the 25-year-old infielder acknowledged that it’s an issue he’s been dealing with for roughly six years.

“When I spoke with him today, compar Men’s Authentic Personalized Any Name Any Number Los Angeles Angels Home White Jersey ed to where he was when we left on the road trip, he sounded much, much better,” Boone said. “Like a different guy.”

Drury, who was prescribed anti-inflammatories to address his neck and head issues, underwent a series of tests at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medic Men’s Authentic Custom Stitched Los Angeles Angels Road Gray Baseball Jersey Sale al Center on Monday. The team is awaiting results of several exams, and Drury is expected to visit an ophthalmologist for a followup exam next week, Boone said.

“I felt like he was at least starting to scratch the surface on some answers, hopefully,” Boone said. And hopefully, we’ll continue to find out more in the coming days and he’ll be ready to join us at some point soon.”

As to exactly when Drury — who is hitting .217 with one homer and four RBIs in eight games — is expected to rejoin the team, Boone declined to offer a timeline.

“I don’t feel like we have all the information yet,” he said. “Hopefully the next couple days, it’ll produce the answers or a plan that we want to put in place for him going forward, and how to treat certain things. If that’s the case, and we get some results, then maybe it’s on the shorter side. But at this point it’s just speculation.”

CC expected to start on Tuesday

Barring a setback after his bullpen session on Saturday, CC Sabathia will likely rejoin the rotation on Tuesday — the first day he’s eligible to come off the 10-day disabled list.

Sabathia, who was forced to exit his previous start last Friday due to a hip flexor st Custom Angels Baseball Jersey rai Custom Angels Jersey n, threw a 57-pitch bullpen session on Thursday a Personalized Angels Baseball Jersey nd didn’t experience any discomfort.

“All is going well,” Boone said. “I’m excited to get the big fella back in our rotation.”

Sabathia, who was placed on the DL last Saturday, didn’t show signs of trouble with the hip early in his start on Friday, but he said he started feeling the soreness as he finished his warmup pitches in the third inning.

Other than an ankle injury that sidelined him briefly, the 37-year-old Sabathia avoided any health scares during Spring Training. Last season he spent time on the DL with a strained left hamstring and inflammation in his right knee.

If Sabathia is activated on Tuesday, he’ll likely square off against Marlins left-hander Jarlin Garcia. Luis Cessa — who will be making a spot start on Saturday — will likely remain in the rotation for another turn if Sabathia remains sidelined.

Cortes back from Baltimore

The Orioles have returned Rule 5 selection Nestor Cortes Jr. to the Yankees, the team confirmed late Friday.

The left-hander has been assigned to Double-A Trenton.

Cortes, who claimed a spot on Baltimore’s Opening Day roster, was designated for assignment on Tuesday, one day after he yielded a second grand slam within a week.

Cortes cleared waivers, and the Orioles received $50,000 in compensation from the Yankees to take back the rights to Cortes, who was not added to their 40-man roster.

Cortes, 23, compiled a 2.06 ERA with 105 strikeouts spanning 104 2/3 innings pitched over three Minor League systems last season.

Aaron Hi Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey cks hits inside-the-park HR in win

DETROIT — Aaron Hicks had to motor around the bases for his first home run of the season on Friday night. He was able to take his time when he hit his second a few innings later.

“Yeah, I liked the first [homer better]. It was a lot more exciting,” Hicks said. “Once you’re rounding that third bag there, it’s kinda fun to see if you can make it or not.”

Hicks did make it, uncontested, sliding headfirst into home plate. It was his first inside-t Men’s Authentic Custom Stitched Los Angeles Angels Road Gray Baseball Jersey Sale he-park home run at any level of professional ball.

“I was exhausted,” he said with a smirk. “It’s something you don’t do every day. You don’t run around all four.”

And you generally don’t hit an over-the-fence home run four innings later, either. But he did that, too.

Weird coincidences surrounded Hicks’ night at the plate

“He’s incredible. He’s got power from both sides of the plate. Gold Glover. Center fielder. It’s incredible. He’s an igniter,” outfielder Aaron Judge said. “He keeps us going, wherever he’s at in the lineup — he ignites. We saw that tonight.”

It was the fourth career multihomer game for Hicks, who was playing in just his second game since returning from the disabled list after dealing with a Grade 1 strain of his intercostal muscle. He went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his return on Thursday, but he wasn’t discouraged by his at-bats.

He showed why on Friday night.

“I talked to him, actually, before the game, and even though he didn’t get any hits in Boston, I thought all of his at-bats were quality,” manager Aaron Boone said. “You can tell he’s seeing the ball pretty well. So it was really encouraging seeing him swing the bat like that.”

His three RBIs and some key insurance runs proved to be enough support for starter Jordan Montgomery, who picked up his first win of the season.

On the heels of a rough start in which he lasted 4 1/3 innings, Montgomery worked six-plus innings of three-run ball, allowing five hits and striking out four.

“I thought his fastball and changeup were really strong,” Boone said. “To be able to get into the seventh inning … [It was] a strong effort, and one we needed.”

Tigers catcher James McCann put Detroit on the board with a fifth-inning solo shot, his first of the season. He added a sac fly in the seventh to cut New York’s lead to 6-3, and an RBI single in the eighth.

The Tigers (4-9) pieced together a three-run rally in the eighth and brought the potential go-ahead run to the plate with two outs, but reliever Chad Green, a former Tigers prospect, froze Dixon Machado on a 95-mph fastball for a called third strike to end the late-inning threat.

“I see [Green] in so many roles,” Boone said. “We feel like he can wear a lot of hats for us, and tonight was a good example of that.”

Aroldis Chapman worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning, striking out the side, to pick up his second save.

Video: NYY@DET: Chapman K’s the side to earn the save

It was an all-around slugfest for the Yankees, who combined for 11 hits, including an RBI single off the bat of Judge that extended his season-high hitting streak to 11 games. It’s the longest hitting streak by a Yankee this season, and tied for the third-longest active streak in the Majors.

“His at-bats have been so good. I mean, he can really wear down a pitcher,” Boone said. “Whatever he does, it seems like he’s in and winning so many pitches in the course of the game. He makes it really hard on an opposing pitcher. He’s in a really good place.”

Video: NYY@DET: Judge lines RBI single to right

SOUND SMART
Hicks’ was the first inside-the-park homer by a Yankees player since Curtis Granderson hit one on Aug. 21, 2011, in Minnesota. Hicks went home-to-home in 15.89 seconds. It is the Yankees’ fastest home run time since Statcast™ started tracking in 2015, and the second quickest this season. Boston’s Eduardo Nunez edged Hicks by .02 seconds with an inside-the-park home run on Opening Day.

It was also the first time a Yankee hit both an inside-the-park home run and an over-the-fence homer since Hank Bauer on May 30, 1956.

Video: Must C Curtis: Curtis legs out an inside-the-parker

With Hicks’ two-homer outing, the Yankees became the first team in Major League history to have five players record Personalized Angels Baseball Jersey  a multihomer game in the first 14 games of a season. Hicks joins Tyler Austin, Gary Sanchez, Giancarlo Stanton and Didi Gregorius.

• Of the 17 pitches Chapman threw, eight (47 percent) were sliders, the second-highest rate of his career in an appearance of at least 10 pitches. This season, 33.1 percent of Chapman’s total pitches have been sliders, compared with 19.1 percent in 2017.

HE SAID IT
“I think the whole bench got up and was waiting for him right wh Custom Angels Jersey en he got in. You don’t get to see that play too often, and when you do, it’s a pretty exciting play.” — Judge, on the team’s reaction to Hicks’ inside-the-park home run

UP NEXT
In Saturday’s 1:10 p.m. ET game against the Tigers, the Yankees will turn to Luis Cessa to fill the spot vacated by CC Sabathia, who is expected to rejoin the rotation on Tuesday. Acquired by the Yankees in the deal that sent Justin Wilson to the Tigers in December 2015, Cessa has a career 4.54 ERA in 73 1/3 innings as a big league starter. He was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre earlier this week. Francisco Liriano will be on the hill for Detroit.

It’s the longest hitting streak by a Yankee this season, and tied for the third-longest active streak in the Majors.

“His at-bats have been so good,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “I mean, he can really wear down a pitcher.”

Judge went on to steal second on a missed hit-and-run that saw Giancarlo Stanton go down swinging. He then scored when Dixon Machado airmailed his throw to first base on Didi Gregorius‘ two-out grounder, giving the Yankees a 5-0 lead. Judge, who finished 1-for-4 with a walk, has now scored at least one run in six straight games, and nine of his last 10. He’s also recorded an RBI in seven of his past 10 games.

“I’m just sticking to my plan. That’s all I can do,” Judge said. “Just stick to my approach, and swing at good pitches. That’s about it.”

Judge is batting 16-for-41 with 11 walks during the stre Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey ak, and is now three games shy of matching the longest hitting streak of his career.

Two homers and four RBIs later, it is safe to say that Boone nailed that prediction.

Mired in a 2-for-36 (.056) start and hitless in his last 15 at-bats, Sanchez helped the Yankees to a 10-7 victory over the Red Sox on Wednesday at Fenway Park, cracking a pair of two-run homers and a double.

BOSTON — Having studied Gary Sanchez‘s at-bats over the last week or so, Yankees manager Aaron Boone repeatedly mentioned that his catcher was “re Custom Angels Baseball Jersey ally close” to busting out. Two homers and four RBIs later, it is safe to say that Boone nailed that prediction.

Mired in a 2-for-36 (.056) start and hitless in his last 15 at-bats, Sanchez helped the Yankees to a 10-7 victory over the Red Sox on Wednesday at Fenway Park, cracking a pair of two-run homers and a double.

“I think he’s really close now,” Boone said, with a laugh. “I wasn’t just saying that. I’ve had almost no concern with Gary offensively speaking. I feel like all year he’s been close. You run through a lot of his at-bats and he’s hit a number of balls on the screws right at guys on the infield.

“I feel like he just missed on some pop-ups and maybe was a little over-aggressive trying to get on track a little bit, but that’s real Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey ly all. I feel like he’s been close now for a couple of weeks.”

With a first-inning homer off David Price that cleared the Green Monster, Sanchez fattened his impressive career numbers against the Boston left-hander. He is now 6-for-12 against Price, with five homers.

“Just Custom Angels Jersey  looking for a good pitch and make sure not to miss it in the zone,” Sanchez said through an interpreter. “I had a good game tonight.”

Sanchez said that he has been working with hitting coach Marcus Thames on a variety of drills. General manager Brian Cashman likened the early issues to what Sanchez experienced in the spring of 2016, when his bat went cold while competing to serve as Brian McCann‘s backup.

That job went instead to Austin Romine, though Sanchez erupted onto the big league scene later in the season, bashing 20 homers in 53 games.

“He’s someone that you never typically worry about as a hitter,” Cashman said. “He’s hitting the ball hard, but some of it’s on the ground. … He’s someone who as long as there isn’t anything physical go Personalized Angels Baseball Jersey ing on — and there isn’t — he’ll catch up to where he’s supposed to be sooner than later, I’m sure.”

Sanchez, who was disciplined for his role in last August’s on-field fracas with the Tigers in Detroit, said that he played peacemaker alongside Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton when the benches cleared in the third and seventh innings on Wednesday.

“I wanted to go out there and try to help calm the situation, hold some people and deflate the fight there,” Sanchez said. “You’ve got to learn from your mistakes. Today, what I wanted to do was try to go out there and prevent people from fighting.”

Here’s a tip

The Yankees reviewed video of Luis Severino‘s start against the Red Sox, checking to see if the right-hander tipped pitches while surrendering five runs over five innings in Tuesday’s 14-1 loss. Manager Aaron Boone indicated that there were aspects of the hurler’s delivery that need to be addressed.

“It’s something we’ve been aware about with Sevy and we address from time to time with him, and try to stay on top of,” Boone said. “We try to be as vigilant as we can. We’re aware of certain things that some of our pitchers may or may not do. It’s something that we’re always mindful of and trying to address, and something that we’re trying to stay on top of so that doesn’t become an issue.”

Kahn-do

Tommy Kahnle‘s fireballing arsenal helped him record a 13.79 K/9.0 IP ratio last season, ranking third in the American League, but a lack of velocity and command have diminished the right-hander’s effectiveness through five appearances this season. Kahnle has struck out seven with seven walks in 6 1/3 innings, allowing five earned runs for a 7.11 ERA.

“He says he is [healthy], but obviously clearly everyone has seen that his velo is not where it typically is,” Cashman said. “That’s a curiosity, so it’s a puzzle that we’re trying to figure out. We don’t have an answer for that.”

Kahnle’s fastball averaged 98.1 mph last season, but it clocked about four mph lower during Tuesday’s appearance. Boone said that Kahnle will be mostly utilized in low to medium leverage situations for the time being.

(Don’t) read all about it

A few months removed from swapping his media credential for a seat on the Men’s Authentic Customized Los Angeles Angels Alternate Red Baseball Jersey Cheap  Yankees’ bench, Boone said that he has been able to tune out the press coverage surrounding his club.

“I don’t read it or pay attention to it much,” Boone said. “Joe Torre once told me when I first came to New York, ‘Don’t read the papers.’ I’m just kind of focused on the day to day; not to say I don’t keep up on what the heck is going on, I’m aware of things that I need to be aware of.”

Injury report

Brandon Drury (severe migraines) has received good news with several of the tests he underwent on Monday in New York. Boone said that he has heard Drury is feeling better, but the Yankees are still waiting on results from other exams.

Jacoby Ellsbury (sore left hip) is aiming to resume baseball activities on Friday at the Yankees’ complex in Tampa, Fla.

Aaron Hicks (right intercostal strain) was scheduled to play nine innings on Wednesday for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and could rejoin the Yankees on Thursday in Boston.

The Yankees’ Top 30 Prospects list is loaded with pitching depth and that talent was certainly on display Wednesday night.

With 22 of the organiza Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey tion’s top 30 prospects residing on the mound, there’s bound  Custom Angels Baseball Jersey to be nights like Wednesday, when starters across the minors combined to give up one earned run over 22 innings.

Chance Adams, the Yankees’ No. 7 prospect, fired five scoreless innings for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Domingo Acevedo (No. 9) gave up two runs, one earned, in five innings with Double-A Trenton, while Trevor Stephan (No. 15) and Glenn Otto (No. 20) each hurled six scoreless for Class A Advanced Tampa and Class Custom Angels Jersey  A Charleston.

Adams was hit hard in his first start, giving up five runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings, and things looked to be a bit rocky again as Lehigh Valley put runners on base in each of the first three innings. However, Adams was able to keep them off the board and eventually settled down, retiring the final eight batters he faced.

Acevedo walked the leadoff man in both the first and second innings and although he  Men’s Authentic Custom Stitched Los Angeles Angels Road Gray Baseball Jersey Sale avoided trouble in the first, he wasn’t quite as lucky in the second as Cavan Biggio — Craig’s son — came around to score. An error would allow a second run to cross the plate and although Acevedo struggled with command — he walked four in five innings — he limited the damage to just the two runs on two hits.

Stephan matched his career-high with seven strikeouts for the second time in as many starts this season. The right-hander, who gave up just three hits, also showed strong control as he didn’t walk a batter and fired 53 of his 85 pitches for strikes.

Otto gave up five runs in 4 1/3 innings in his full-season debut, but his second start went much smoother. The 2017 fifth-round selection did walk four in six innings, but struck out five and yielded just one hit as he strung together zeros on the scoreboard.
