Yankees Drop Giancarlo Stanton To Fourth In Batting Order

Updates with new lead.

Stanton's home run in the third inning stopped a 50 at-bat homerless streak.

"That guy Robertson? He's not going to melt", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.

The Toronto Blue Jays will play their divisional rival New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

"Well, no one imagines that", said Gurriel in Spanish. "It's hard not to notice that they're running through the league pretty well right now".

The Toronto Blue Jays will look to stay hoot after winning 13 of their last 17 games following a game two 8-5 victory over NY on Friday.

Toronto (+135) is entering this game as the underdog to NY (-145) and Vegas has the Over/Under for this afternoon game at 9 runs (-120 for the over and +100 for the under).

The New York Yankees announced prior to Thursday's game that they have activated LHP CC Sabathia off the 10-day disabled list, and placed RHP Luis Cessa on the 10-day DL (retroactive to Wednesday) with a left oblique strain. "Remember how you were back when you were a kid and you got out there and prepare and let what happen happens". In 14 games during spring training, Gurriel Jr. hit.292/.320/.375.

The Blue Jays inked the Cuban native to a 7-year/$22 million dollar pact in the winter of 2016. I've said from the beginning that I am not flawless.

And yet the Yankees still came away with a victory. "We've got to be a part of getting him right and back on track, but this was tough tonight".

Gray has made three starts on the season. Roberto Osuna pitched the ninth for his sixth save in as many chances. The homer extended the lead to 4-2 and proved paramount an inning later, when the Blue Jays cut into the deficit. Solarte is hitting.283/.413/.583 with five home runs, 10 RBIs and 13 runs scored, while Granderson is slashing.319/.439/.532 with two homers, nine RBIs and 10 runs scored. Although it is early, NY needs to begin making some changes if they want to be in the hunt by the All-Star break. Then he simply unraveled.

"We were seeing a lot of 90-91 (mph) with the fastball". Ronald Torreyes went 3 for 4 with a double, while Aaron Hicks added a pair of base hits and Aaron Judge and Didi Gregorius each chipped in a base hit as well in the loss.

Tyler Austin hit a two-run in the second off Estrada.

The team also optioned southpaw reliever Tim Mayza and infielder Gift Ngoepe to triple-A Buffalo. He was a career.277 hitter in 305 games in Cuba while also playing with his brother Yuli Gurriel who is now with the Houston Astros.

"I think he's in a good place", Boone said. "Me and Gary just got crossed up". The 31-year old first baseman has not been productive since that series, and he is now hitting.235 with two homers and 12 RBI's on the season.

Toronto was eyeing a big inning for a second straight game.

"I had to do something", he said.

Through Thursday, the Yankees had an American League-high 18 errors (in 17 games) and a Major League-worst.971 fielding percentage. They've made six fielding miscues the last five games.

Anyway, this feel-good story of the Yankees All-Star catcher making strides at becoming a more complete player in his third season perhaps has hit a roadblock this week. He allowed five runs on five hits, walking four and striking out none. Perhaps moving out of the 3-hole will take some pressure off and help him get back to mashing the ball.
