Pitching around Giancarlo Stanton, Stroman lost the Yankees slugger to a walk then surrendered a double to Didi Gregorius, a single to Neil Walker and a hanging slider two-run homer to Brandon Drury. They were the first runs Olson has allowed with Cleveland - past year he threw 20 scoreless innings in 30 appearances for the Indians. Tampa Bay closed out a four game series at home with the Red Sox Sunday afternoon: they dropped the final three games of the series after a 2-1 defeat. Tanaka racked up eight strikeouts over six innings, while only allowing one run to score off a solo home run by Randal Grichuk in the second.
And then the New York Yankees happened. The Bombers announced Friday via Twitter that OF Aaron Hicks has been placed on the 10-day DL with a right intercostal muscle strain.
Whoever the Yankees pick to play some outfield in the even that McKinney has to miss time Yankees fans should be happy that none of these injuries are season enders.
Just like that a modest lead turned into a 4-1 deficit. Sabathia managed to strike out four Blue Jays over five innings, before receiving a no-decision in Saturday's game.
Robertson got behind Smoak, 2-0, before battling back to get it to 2-2.
Hicks now will take three days off before resuming baseball activity with the goal of getting back in the lineup seven days after that. They say it's not just for the money they make from the extra traffic. It was also considering Donaldson was playing with what the Blue Jays were calling a dead arm - which showed on several of his throws to third base Saturday. This was a result of Hicks' injury and Boone's attempt to rest Brett Gardner for a day on the Rogers Center turf.
DeJong hit.285 with 25 home runs and 65 RBIs as a rookie last year, earning a $26 million, six-year contract.
Austin had tied the game an inning earlier, sending a first-pitch offering from Estrada into the second deck in centre field. McKinney was attempting to make a leaping catch to rob a Josh Donaldson double. Warren's X-rays were negative, and he has been diagnosed with a right ankle contusion. Third baseman Miguel Andujar was recalled to fill the open roster spot.
Ticket exchanges can be made at Yankee Stadium's ticket window until 5 p.m. Monday, and beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday, or during regular ticket-window hours during the season. Austin went into the game as a career.184/.228/.333 (45 wRC+) hitter with 41.3% strikeouts in fairly limited time against big league righties.
