Via ESPN Stats & Information, this is what has happened when Sonny Gray has pitched to Gary Sánchez and Austin Romine. Asked if Gray liked pitching to Romine because Romine seemed more proficient at catching balls in the dirt, Yankees manager Aaron Boone today said: "No. I don't think it's that. When he came over here they kind of connected and got on the same page. I think it's a comfort level and hopefully this is one thing that'll be the start of Sonny starting to turn the corner, because obviously he's important."

According to the Yankees, Giancarlo Stanton and Masahiro Tanaka were the beneficiaries of a couple of calls MLB just changed. Stanton's reach-on-error in April 12's loss at Boston was changed to an infield single. It means his average will rise from .213 to .225 entering Wednesday's game. Tanaka also will lose a hit and earned run that came in the April 17 loss to Miami. Cameron Maybin originally had reached on a hit plus an error. The hit has been removed, and the play changed to a two-base error.

Jets daily draft nugget: Does hand size matter for a quarterback? A lot of NFL people think it does, especially in cold-weather cities. GM Mike Maccagnan declined this week to say how much value he puts on hand size, saying he doesn't want to tip his intentions. If he picks Baker Mayfield (9 1/4 inches), we'll know it doesn't matter much in his opinion. Sam Darnold (9 3/8), Josh Rosen (9 7/8) and Josh Allen (10 1/8) have bigger hands than Mayfield.

Seven times this season a Yankees player has had a multi-homer game (Gary Sanchez had two HRs tonight after having another two-homer game earlier this season). That's the most individual multi-homer games in major league history for a team through its first 22 games.

Didi Gregorius drew some high praise from CC Sabathia after tonight's win:"What he's done in taking over for arguably one of the best shortstops to ever play — and we don't even bring him (Derek Jeter) up anymore because Didi has been that good — you've got to give him credit in what he's been able to do taking over in that spot. He's the anchor of our team."
