Former C Nick Mangold said goodbye to football on Tuesday, signing a one-day contract and retiring a Jet. At a news conference, he told reporters he didn't miss football last season as much as he expected. "That's when I knew I'm in a good spot," said Mangold, who sat out 2017 after being cut by the Jets. Former teammates D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Willie Colon, Brandon Moore and Ryan Fitzpatrick attended. So did John Schmitt, the center on the Super Bowl III team.

A promising sign for the Yankees' outfield this afternoon. OF Billy McKinney, who went on the disabled list April 1, is out taking a few fly balls and ground balls several hours before tonight's game. He suffered a left shoulder sprain when he crashed hard into the outfield wall at Toronto in the season's opening series. Slowly but surely this banged-up Yankees team is getting healthier.

Caps close it out

The good news? The Capitals are on to the next round. The bad news? They'll play the Penguins. Plus, the Leafs and Bruins are headed for a Game 7!

Giants open minicamp today. Expectation is that Odell Beckham Jr. will be there although not practicing as he continues to rehab, per sources. Ereck Flowers ... less optimism.

Jets daily draft nugget: No team has traded up into the top five more than the Jets — four times in the common-draft era (since 1967). None of the three previous picks (Mark Sanchez, Dewayne Robertson and Lam Jones) made a single Pro Bowl. The Jets also are part of another trend. Since 2013, only nine of the 12 first-round quarterbacks were taken with picks acquired via trade. The exceptions: Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota and Blake Bortles.

After pitching the final two innings Monday night, Yankees reliever David Hale was designated for assignment. He's being replaced by now former Nationals righty A.J. Cole, who was traded to New York on Monday in exchange for cash considerations. Cole is being added to the 25-man roster. Hale struck out three and allowed three hits in his solid relief outing.

Stanton credits 1st at-bat for big night (1:17)
Didi adds to rout with grand slam (0:27)

The Bronx Bombers lived up to their nickname Monday night, as every player in the starting lineup reached base. Only Brett Gardner (two walks) failed to get a hit. Aaron Judge launched a deep double. Giancarlo Stanton went 4-for-4 (his first four-hit game as a Yankee) with a long homer. Didi Gregorius hit a grand slam. Tyler Austin homered. So did Miguel Andújar. And 21-year-old 2B Gleyber Torres, playing in just his second major-league game, got his first career hit. That leadoff single kicked off a six-run eighth that helped the Yankees cruise to a 14-1 win over the Twins.

At 10:20 p.m. ET on April 23, 2018, young Yankees 2B Gleyber Torres had his first major-league hit. A single up the middle at the Stadium, he lined a 1-2 slider off Twins reliever Tyler Kinley. As he ran up the first-base line, Torres gave a little fist pump.

Stanton crushes solo HR (0:27)

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

With his fifth-inning homer tonight, Giancarlo Stanton now has his first multi-hit game since he had three hits in the Yankees' win at Boston 12 days ago. This is his fifth multi-hit game of the season.
