|TORONTO — The New York Yankees will open an 11-game road trip in Toronto on Friday Cheap Tarvarius Moore 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 (56-2 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 Paul Goldschmidt Jersey , 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.
The 28-year-old is 4-3 with a 2.71 ERA in 11 career starts against Toronto. As a Yankee, he is 1-1 with a 2.96 ERA in five starts against the Blue Jays, and he is 0-0 with a 3.52 ERA in three starts this 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 Cheap Jalyn Holmes Jersey ,” 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.
MILWAUKEE — With just two regular-season games left, the Milwaukee Bucks are assured of a spot when the postseason gets underway next week.
Where the Bucks will be seeded and who they’ll face in the opening round Oren Burks Color Rush Jersey , however, is still up in the air, leaving plenty to play for Monday night when they host the Orlando Magic at the Bradley Center.
They’ll take the court Monday sitting seventh in the Eastern Conference field with Miami, which earns the sixth seed based on a tiebreaker, and a game ahead of eighth-place Washington.
Moving up would be welcomed but the Bucks would be happy to finish seventh. Not only would that allow them to avoid top-seeded Toronto as the eighth seed, a seventh-place finish sets up a first-round series against Boston, which lost point guard Kyrie Irving for the remainder of the season.
The Bucks kept pace Saturday, knocking off the Knicks 115-102 despite playing without Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was resting a sore ankle. He’s expected to return Monday as is point guard Malcolm Brodgdon Jason Kipnis Jersey , who’s missed the last two months with a torn left quadriceps tendon.
“I can’t wait, man, I can’t wait to have him back,” point guard Eric Bledsoe said. “At the same, I think we did a great job of playing together since him and (Matthew Dellavedova) went down. Those are key pieces of our backcourt, him and Delly. Glad to have Malcolm back.”
Brogdon expects to get enough work in these final two games for him to be ready for the postseason.
“Absolutely,” Brogdon said. “I’ll definitely be able to get back into a rhythm, but it’s mandatory that I play at least a game or two before I get back to the playoffs.”
The Magic is not heading to the postseason and comes to Milwaukee having dropped two in a row — including a 112-101 decision at Toronto Sunday — and eight of its last 11 since posting a 126-117 victory over the Bucks March 14 in Orlando.
While the Bucks sort out their postseason plans, Magic head coach Frank Vogel could be running out the string on his time with the franchise.
He’s 53-109 since taking over ahead of the 2016-17 season but when Jeff Weltman took over as general manager and brought in John Hammond as his assistant — a reversal of the roles they held with the Bucks — both made it clear that they would evaluate the Magic’s coaching situation at the end of the season.
His roster was devastated by injuries this season and Orlando will have the fifth-worst record in the league at gametime Monday.
Still Authentic Trenton Cannon Jersey , his players appreciate Vogel’s leadership.
“Coach Vogel, he wants to see everybody on this team do good, especially the young guys,” forward Wes Iwundu said. “In games like this, it starts by building good habits. He don’t want to see no bad habits out there on the court.”
Along with the playoff implications, Monday’s game also marks the end of an era for the Bucks. It will be the final regular-season contest played at the Bradley Center, the Bucks’ home since 1988.
Milwaukee will move to a new, $500 million facility under construction just to the north of its current home next season.
