Blue Jays reinstate Morales from DL, recall prospect Gurriel Jr

The New York Yankees are playing host to their divisional rival Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium.

First pitch is set for 7:05 ET on the YES Network and can be heard on WFAN 660/101.9FM.

Montgomery has been very good against Toronto and while it's a limited sample size, it's enough to make you look New York's way, especially with how Stroman has struggled on the road against NY. The two-run shot tied the game 2-2. Toronto has still won seven of its last nine and is 12-6 on the season and 5-3 on the road.

DETROIT - Leonys Martin hit his first big league grand slam, Jeimer Candelario had four hits and three RBIs, and the Detroit Tigers beat Baltimore 13-8 Thursday to extend the Orioles' losing streak to six.

With a 2-0 lead intact, CC Sabathia, making his first start off the 10-Day DL, allowed back-to-back singles to Luke Maile and Devon Travis to start the 3rd.

NY games have an 11-4-1 over/under record so far in 2018.

Giancarlo Stanton and Tyler Austin hit two-run homers for the Yankees (9-9), who are back at.500 for the seventh time this season. Estrada is 1-1 with a 4.24 ERA and 14 strikeouts. Furthermore, Stroman is due for a strong start, and he does feature a strong 3.45 career ERA against the Yankees, plus the Yankees lineup is only hitting a combined.218 against him. Though his record is 1-1 following this no-decision, his ERA has swelled to 8.27.

Even as its online focused sub-brand Honor was actively launching smartphones in India, while Huawei took the backseat. The P20 Lite, on the other hand, is available in Europe for around Euro 350, which converts to roughly Rs.29,250.

After Sonny Gray lasted only 3 1/3 innings Friday, the Yankees hope to get some length from Saturday's starter, Jordan Montgomery, who is pitching on seven days' rest. The 24-year old hit.229/.268/.339 with five home runs and three stolen bases between Dunedin and New Hampshire last season.

The fifth homer of the season for Judge gave the Yankees a 4-2 lead.

Judge performed well against righties at home past year, slashing.318/.424/.771 across 257 such plate appearances (his total season line was.284/.422/.627).

Yankees: LHP Jordan Montgomery (1-0, 4.70) is unbeaten in his last eight starts and has lost once in his previous 12 starts dating back to August 5, 2017. That homer had remained his most recent home run for 11 games. Freeman missed seven weeks in 2017 after fracturing his left wrist when hit by a pitch at about the same spot. Over 238 such plate appearances, he maintained a slash line of.234/.353/.542 (compared to his overall season line of.212/.323/.450). On the other hand, the Yankees have lost 4.8 units and are 4-6 ATS when facing a right-handed starting pitcher. Kris Bryant had two RBIs, and Anthony Rizzo had three hits and an RBI.

The Yankees bullpen wasn't much better allowing three runs in the middle innings.

This meeting was planned last week, and, boy, do the Yankees need it, as they have just four error-free games thus far. none in their last five and just one in their last 10.
