With a Neil Walker's seventh-inning home run Tuesday, the Yankees have now tied the single-season MLB record for players with double-digit home runs. They are the fifth team in big-league history (and first since the 2017 Astros) to have 11 players with at least 10 homers in a year. That number doesn't include Andrew McCutchen, who has 19 total homers between his time with the Yankees and Giants. Luke Voit still has time to make it 12 players in double digits, as he has seven homers.

Jets injury report: LB Josh Martin and TE Neal Sterling have been ruled out. Coach Todd Bowles refused to rule out S Marcus Maye even though he's not expected to play. Bowles said Maye has been dealing with an issue on the bottom of his foot, although he declined to be specific. Asked if Maye's injury could require surgery, Bowles said, "It shouldn't, no. He'll be ready when he's ready."

Maybe we can credit Mother Nature for Aaron Judge's return to the Yankees' lineup tonight. Aaron Boone did not come to the ballpark this morning before the scheduled afternoon game thinking he'd start Judge. But after Judge's sim game that came after rains blew through, his name went into the order.

Jets practice report (early version): S Marcus Maye (foot) isn't practicing, meaning he probably will miss his third straight game. LB Josh Martin, who suffered a concussion in the third preseason game, participated during the open portion of practice — an encouraging sign.

Browns coach Hue Jackson, on a conference call with the New York media, dodged a question on why they picked Baker Mayfield over Sam Darnold: "I don't think at this point that really matters. More than anything, what Sam is doing is he's proving he can play in this league as a starter right now for the New York Jets. We have a very young, talented player that we feel real good about who, at some point in time, will get an opportunity to showcase his talent and ability."
