Machado trade chips dominate Futures Game

Before Manny Machado arrived for the All-Star Game, the Futures Game on Sunday was a who's who of prospects bandied about in trade talks for the Orioles shortstop and others expected to be moved before the July 31 non-waiver deadline.

Mets fans, meet your potential first baseman of the future: Peter Alonso belts a towering fly ball out to left field and stands and watches it for a few moments. Hopefully, this won't turn into an international incident. Alonso has 21 homers between Double-A and Triple-A, but has hit just .190 at Las Vegas in 23 games since his promotion. Still, he may be the power hitter that Dom Smith may never turn into.

Aaron Boone was asked today if he does any scoreboard watching of the Red Sox. He pauses then smiles: "I see they win every day." He adds that he isn't worried about keeping an eye on Boston at this point; as he said, "it's July." "I'm worried about us going out playing our best."

Aaron Boone joked that he watched every TV in the Yankees' clubhouse trying to watch the end of tonight's game. Was also unaware of the colorful language he used before his ejection. He said he did see it appeared the umpires got the call correct. He initially thought the ball hit Giancarlo Stanton's hand and bat, causing the ball to be fouled back on the swing.

An error-filled Little League inside-the-park homer and Aaron Boone's fiery ejection headlined the Yankees' 5-4 win over Cleveland on Saturday. Boone was tossed after arguing a sixth-inning strikeout call on Giancarlo Stanton. An inning later, catcher Austin Romine broke a 4-4 tie and scored the go-ahead run when he blasted a double to right. He advanced to third as the outfielders struggled to get the ball in quickly, and then he scored when the relay throw to third bounced out of play. CC Sabathia got the no-decision, so he's still 12-0 when pitching the day after a Yankees loss since 2017.

Brooklyn now with 14 players (13 guaranteed) under contract after the Shabazz Napier signing. The Nets are right at the cap and can now begin the process of signing Joe Harris (early bird exception) and Ed Davis (room midlevel exception) to exceed the salary cap.

Gary Sánchez is flying this evening from Cleveland to Scranton for a rehab game at Triple-A tomorrow. He'll catch seven innings Sunday and then travel with the RailRiders. The plan is for him to DH one game, get an off day, catch once more and then rejoin the Yankees on Friday for the start of the season's second half, per Aaron Boone. Gleyber Torres will rehab while at the All-Star Game this week, then will fly to Tampa and play in rehab games there next weekend. The hope is he rejoins the Yankees when they visit the Rays the week after.
