Yanks rained out, DH on 7/4; Minor league games affected also.

For the second straight day, the Yankees were rained out, this time against the Mets. The game will be made up on Sunday, the 4th of July. A split DH, first game at 2:05 PM, second game ESPN game, 7:08 PM. Since DH, both 7 inning games.

The weather forecast for today, Saturday July 3, isn’t good. Don’t be surprised if there is a delay or (gasp!) another postponement. Both teams have off on Monday, which could be a makeup day, but it would have to be an afternoon game since the Yankees then fly out to Seattle.

The Yanks (41-39, 4th in AL East) did lose more ground. Boston won last night so the Yanks are 9 1/2 back. They are 5 games out of a wild card spot, and would have to surpass four teams to even get that. They have a lot of work to do.

The Yanks put Clint Frazier (vertigo) on the IL. Just acquired Tim Locastro takes his place on the roster.

As for the minors:

AAA: SWB rained out.

Game 2: Lost 5-2. C Jason Lopez 2 for 2 w/a walk. RF Isiah Gilliam 2 RBI.

High A: Hudson Valley (32-18) lost 8-2, a nine-inning game, getting just two hits. The second game was rained out.

Low A: Tampa (34-16) split a DH, both 7-inning games.

Game 1: Won 6-0 on a 1-hitter. Completion of suspended game. When the game resumed, Matt Sauer picked up in the second inning and pitched the rest of the way. 6 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 10 K. RF Jake Sanford 3 hits, 5 RBI, a 3-run HR. 2B Jesus Bastidas added a solo HR.

Didi Gregorius will be starting rehab games today (Saturday) with High A Tampa.

James Paxton pitched 4 innings in a simulated game yesterday and did well, but is still feeling something in that knee. How he is today will determine when he returns to the rotation. It may be something he just has to deal with for a while, if it’s tolerable.
