NEW YORK (AP) — Gleyber Torres had a tough time at the plate in his first major league game.The prized prospect went 0 for 4 and stranded six runners during his highly anticipated debut for the New York Yankees, who nonetheless cruised to a 5-1 victory Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays."I feel good. Super excited," Torres said afterward.The 21-year-old infielder played second base and batted eighth in a Yankees lineup that didn't include a player 30 or older for the first time since Sept. 29, 1989, according to STATS.Rated among the top five or six prospects in baseball, Torres became the youngest position player to appear in a game for the Yankees since 20-year-old Melky Cabrera in 2005. Atlanta second baseman Ozzie Albies, also 21, is the only major leaguer younger than Torres to play in a game this season."We just feel like he's ready," New York manager Aaron Boone said.

Thu Apr 1917:38Yanks make anti-bullying video, invite bullied girl to Bronx
NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees have a message for a bullied fourth-grader in Pennsylvania: "You are not alone."The Yankees created an anti-bullying video and posted it to the team's Twitter account Wednesday in response to a video created by 10-year-old Cassidy Warner. The young girl from Scranton, Pennsylvania, has gone viral for a Facebook video in which she holds note cards recounting bullying she's received in elementary school.Yankees director of media relations Jason Zillo discovered Warner's story during a pair of rainouts in Detroit last weekend. The Yankees created a video featuring 24 players and manager Aaron Boone holding note cards telling Warner "we care about you" and inviting her to hang with the team at Yankee Stadium."Count the New York Yankees among your friends!" reads a card held by Judge.The Yankees' video had over 200,000 views by Thursday before the team's game against the Toronto Blue Jays."All our guys were really excited to be a part o...

Wed Apr 1805:00Big fish struggling to catch on: Stanton slumping in Bronx
NEW YORK (AP) — Coming up empty against his former team was hardly what Giancarlo Stanton had in mind.Same is true of the poor first impression he's made in Yankees pinstripes so far.Last year's NL MVP is off to a miserable start with New York — especially at home — and the hulking slugger is hearing it from impatient fans in the Bronx. After going 0 for 4 with two more strikeouts in a 9-1 loss to the last-place Miami Marlins on Tuesday night, the slumping Stanton is 3 for 35 (.086) with 20 strikeouts at Yankee Stadium this season."Obviously, he's frustrated. You want to go out there and perform, especially when you're an MVP, and obviously he expects a lot of himself," rookie manager Aaron Boone said. "But I think his focus is tremendous and I'm really confident that the work he's putting in — and he's a worker, he gets after it — and I'm confident that once he gets rolling it'll be a juggernaut. I want him to, just for peace of mind, to get going a little bit and kind of se... [More]

Sun Apr 1518:19No Game Today: Wintry weather, plenty of MLB postponements
CHICAGO (AP) — April showers — and snow, sleet and wind — are wreaking havoc on major league baseball.No Ohtani in Kansas City. No Judge in Detroit. One less off day for a couple more teams this summer.Six more games were wiped out Sunday, running baseball's total number of postponements to 21 just 2 1/2 weeks into the season. It's baseball's highest number through the end of April since it had 26 in 2007, and there are still a couple weeks to go this month.The last time six games were wiped out in a single day was Sept. 12, 2008, and that situation was partly caused by Hurricane Ike battering the Gulf Coast. There was more dicey weather in the forecast for Monday, and Boston postponed its annual Patriots' Day game for the first time since 1984."If it was up to me, no one would play north of Atlanta or east of Colorado in the first few weeks, but that's not going to happen," Braves reliever Peter Moylan said.Angels sensation Shohei Ohtani was slated to pitch for the third time be...

Sat Apr 1413:54Tigers, Yankees rained out, will try for doubleheader Sunday
DETROIT (AP) — It may take a while for the New York Yankees to finish their three games in Detroit this season.The Yankees and Tigers were rained out Saturday, with bad weather threatening to wash away most of New York's only scheduled visit to the Motor City this year. The Yankees beat the Tigers 8-6 on Friday night, and the teams will try to play a split doubleheader Sunday to finish this three-game series — but the weather then might not be any better."It doesn't look very good, but we'll just try and have a good day of rest today," New York manager Aaron Boone said. "Some guys getting a little bit of work in now, and prepare ourselves like we are getting ready to go tomorrow, and then we'll see what Mother Nature has for us."The Tigers would send left-handers Francisco Liriano (1-1) and Matthew Boyd (0-1) to the mound Sunday against New York right-handers Luis Severino (2-1) and Luis Cessa (0-0).

BOSTON (AP) — New York Yankees designated hitter Tyler Austin rushed the mound after being hit by a pitch from Boston Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly, and both players began punching away in a bench-clearing brawl Wednesday night at Fenway Park.The bitter rivals tangled in the seventh inning, adding another chapter to a long history that has included some memorable brawls.The benches cleared briefly in the third after Austin's spikes clipped Brock Holt's leg on a slide into second base.
