Gary Sanchez Newsbeat

Yankees sign Logan Morrison, who once beefed with Gary Sanchez and called their fans ‘stupid’

The New York Yankees have signed veteran first baseman Logan Morrison to a minor-league deal, the team announced on Friday. He will go to extended spring training before he ends up with the Yankees’ Triple-A affiliate Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. Morrison has an opt-out date of July 1 and will make $1 million if he’s added to the major league roster, reports ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Morrison will have to prove himself before getting the call-up to the big-league lineup, but it’s going to be very interesting if he does end up in the New York clubhouse. When Morrison didn’t get an invite to the 2017 Home Run Derby, he took out his frustration on Gary Sanchez.

“Gary shouldn’t be here,” Morrison said. “Gary’s a great player, but he shouldn’t be in the Home Run Derby. I remember when I had 14 home runs. That was a month and a half ago.”

John Kander and Fred Ebb wrote a great song that explains Mr. Morrison’s change of heart.

Not again: Yankees lose yet another player to injury as Gary Sánchez hits IL

The New York Yankees might want to consider taking the field wearing bubble wrap moving forward. The team was hit by yet another injury Friday, as catcher Gary Sánchez was placed on the injured list.

The 26-year-old Sánchez will miss at least the next 10 days due to a left calf strain. He was hitting .268/.333/.732 with six home runs to open the season.

The move leaves the Yankees with quite a few big names on the IL.

MLB roundup: Sanchez hits 3 of Yanks’ 7 homers in walloping Orioles

Gary Sanchez homered three times while Clint Frazier homered twice as the visiting New York Yankees belted seven homers in defeating the Baltimore Orioles 15-3 Sunday afternoon.

Sanchez finished with six RBIs in his first career three-homer game, while Frazier drove in four runs. The victory completed a sweep of the three-game series. New York also got homers from Gleyber Torres and Austin Romine and finished with 14 overall during this sweep.

The first 18 runs the Yankees scored in this series came via the long ball.

Domingo German (2-0) carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning and gave up two runs on two hits in six innings plus two batters.

If there’s anything that we don’t have a thread on, here’s a good place to discuss it.
