Toronto on Friday Ryan Finley Jersey , a journey that will take them to the All-Star break.
But the Yankees received some bad news on what was an otherwise a happy Fourth of July.
After the Yankees defeated the Atlanta Braves 6-2 in the rubber match of a three-game series at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday, it was revealed that their superb rookie second baseman Gleyber Torres had a hip strain that will sideline him until at least mid-July.
Torres will be on the disabled list when the Yankees (56-28) open a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays (40-46) at the Rogers Centre.
The Yankees will start right-hander Sonny Gray (5-6, 5.44 ERA) against Blue Jays right-hander Sam Gaviglio (2-2, 3.97).
Torres was removed from the game Wednesday during the fourth inning and an MRI showed a strain.
“Any time you’re talking about a groin, a hamstring, quads or a hip — once you have a strain in there, you can punch through it or make it a worse strain,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “So, I think the wise thing is to do this now. Gleyber wants to take a couple of days and work through it, but I think he also understands this is the best thing for him and for us.”
Infielder Tyler Wade will be recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for the game on Friday. After going 3-for-35 (.086) in 13 games with New York early in the season, Wade was demoted to the RailRiders and batted .271/.332/.376 with two homers and 18 RBIs.
Torres is batting .294/.350/.555 in 63 games with 15 homers and 42 RBIs for the Yankees since being called up from Triple-A April 22.
The Blue Jays lost their game Wednesday to the New York Mets 6-3 to split the two-game interleague set. They are 3-3 on the homestand and 23-23 overall at home.
Gray has pitched well at the Rogers Centre, going 2-3 with a 1.88 ERA in seven career starts while pitching for the Yankees and the Oakland Athletics, who traded him to New York during last season.
Gray has lost his past two starts, including Saturday against the Boston Red Sox when he went 2 1/3 innings, his shortest of the season, and allowed six earned runs.
“That was embarrassing for me and I think for everybody in here,” Gray said. “I haven’t beat a lot of teams since I’ve been here. I’ve been bad against the Red Sox, I’ve been bad against a lot of teams. I don’t think one particular team you can say has my number or whatever. I’ve been bad against multiple teams.”
“The good thing about Sonny is, he’s got the equipment to get this right,” Boone said. “He’s got the stuff to be the same pitcher he’s been at times in his career. This guy’s still a dude. He’s got to dig his heels in and it’s on all of us to try and help unlock that.”
Gaviglio has faced the Yankees once in his career, pitching seven scoreless innings against them June 6 in a no decision as New York won 3-0 in 13 innings.
In his most recent start, the 28-year-old allowed three runs, four hits and three walks in seven innings Saturday against the Detroit Tigers but did not factor in the decision. Toronto won the game 4-3 on Justin Smoak’s leadoff homer in the bottom of the ninth inning.
This will be Gaviglio’s 11th appearance and ninth start with Toronto after going 0-0 with a 1.86 ERA in five starts with Triple-A Buffalo.
The Blue Jays made two moves before the game Wednesday, designating right-handed reliever Preston Guilmet for assignment and returning left-hander Tim Mayza on option to Buffalo. Right-handers Luis Santos and Rhiner Cruz were called up from Buffalo. Each had a scoreless relief outing against the Mets.
The Yankees lead the season series 7-3.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Jared Goff doesn’t plan to do much during the Los Angeles Rams‘ six-week summer break before training camp begins.When he isn’t working out, he’ll probably be playing video games and simultaneously bonding with his teammates Michael Jordan Jersey , including new center Brian Allen.“We play Fortnite together,” Goff said with a grin. “We’ll play a little Fortnite, talk about protections on the mics.”Goff insists he won’t spend any of this time off worrying about his next contract — not even after Carson Wentz got paid by the Philadelphia Eagles.“You definitely think about it,” Goff said Tuesday after the Rams’ final offseason practice. “But at the same time, I know that none of that is even possible without playing on the field, and being available on the field. I’ll just continue to do what I’ve been doing the last few years, and hopefully it will take care of itself.”Goff was the first choice in the 2016 draft, while Wentz was the No. 2 pick. But while Goff is heading into the fourth season of his rookie contract this fall with no extension yet, Wentz is all set with a $128 million deal through 2024.Given the quarterbacks’ many parallels — they even share the same agent, Ryan Tollner — the Eagles’ surprising decision amplified the spotlight on the Rams’ negotiations with Goff.Yet Goff, coach Sean McVay and the front office all show absolutely no concern about the quarterback’s future with the Rams. Goff and coach Sean McVay both speak about their partnership as a long-term arrangement, with Goff’s next contract merely an expensive formality.“With what Jared has done over the last couple of years, you can’t argue with the production, and how good we feel about him being our quarterback http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-hunter-renfrow-jersey ,” McVay said. “And we intend for that to be for a long time.”For all of his regular-season brilliance, the injury-plagued Wentz has never played in a postseason game, while Goff has led the Rams to two NFC West titles and a Super Bowl over the past two seasons. If Wentz is worth more than $107 million guaranteed, Goff’s number is likely to be similarly staggering.But Goff, who passed for 4,688 yards and 32 touchdowns last season, betrays zero public urgency to get a deal done. When asked for an ideal timeline to get his contract situation resolved, he only said: “whatever is right.”“It’s not for me to worry about,” Goff said. “It’s for the team and my agent to work on, and keep doing what I’ve been doing on the field, and hopefully it will take care of itself.”McVay is aware of the offseason whispers as observers attempt to come up with reasons why the Rams haven’t overwhelmed Goff with a big-money offer. He knows some football people believe Goff’s success is rooted squarely in McVay’s superb offensive schemes, while others wonder whether Goff’s late-season slump in production gave pause to Los Angeles’ interest in a long-term commitment.McVay says it’s all nonsense.“Any of the things or narratives that are out there — Jared Goff, as long as I’m fortunate enough to be in this role, hopefully this guy is stuck with me for a long time Zach Brown Jersey ,” McVay said. “He’s an outstanding leader. People make a deal about this system, (but) he’s the reason why (it works). Our players are the reason why the system is what it is, because (Goff) can do so many different things. … He’s got true ownership, a great ability to communicate with his teammates, and with him leading the way, we feel really good.”NOTES: The Rams’ mandatory minicamp lasted only one day. After several weeks of organized team activities, they’re done with group workouts until they reconvene for the start of training camp at UC Irvine on July 27. … RB Todd Gurley didn’t join offseason practices, but he worked out extensively at the training complex. “I don’t feel like I need to do OTAs,” Gurley said. “I know what I’ve done. I know what I can do.” Gurley insists his left knee is healthy enough to play after his effectiveness and workload were curtailed late last season, but he acknowledges the chatter won’t completely die down until he gets on the field for Los Angeles’ season opener. McVay also said Gurley will participate in practices during training camp. … DT Aaron Donald had permission to skip the Rams’ one-day minicamp because of a commitment back home in Pittsburgh. Donald has been a participant in the Rams’ recent workouts after missing most of the previous two offseason programs while negotiating his new contract.
