Francona ... points to Tomlin in rotation for ALDS

Francona: Clevinger going to bullpen “to be a weapon.” Indians leaning toward 4-man rotation for ALDS.

Francona didn’t name the 4th starter, but sure points to Tomlin in rotation for ALDS, if Game 4 needed. Team still weighing Salazar’s role.

Aaron Judge More Than Halfway To Rookie HR Record

All Rise!

Aaron Judge is halfway to 50 home runs. This marks the 11th time that a New York Yankees player hit 25 home runs within the team’s first 70 games of the season. Babe Ruth had five of the other 10. Roger Maris had two such years (including 1961, when he broke Ruth’s record by hitting 61 home runs). Alex Rodriguez, Mickey Mantle and Lou Gehrig had one each.
.  .  .
Twenty-five home runs in 70 team games is at a season’s pace of 57 homers, which would shatter Mark McGwire’s major league rookie record of 49 HRs for the 1987 Oakland Athletics. That 57 would rank fourth in Yankees history for any player, behind Maris’ 61, Ruth’s 60 in 1927 (Ruth had 25 through the Yankees’ first 70 games, as well) and Ruth’s 59 in 1921. Judge also is on pace for 131 RBIs and 145 runs scored.

Verdict pending.
