Tuesday's longest home runs

Gary Sanchez outpaced the competition by nearly 40 feet, as his 493-foot blast -- his first of two homers on the day -- slots in behind Aaron Judge's 495-footer for the longest home runs this season. Yangervis Solarte's 455-footer highlights a career-high six-RBI night, while the homers by Nick Williams and Marcell Ozuna were only two of 14 hit by the Phillies and Marlins between both ends of their doubleheader.

Jets RB Matt Forte, who returned after missing three weeks of practice with a pulled hamstring, explains the importance of getting preseason action. He hopes to play Saturday and says there's "no doubt" he will be ready for Week 1. His son, Matt, has a reporter's tape recorder as he listens to dad.

Like all MLB teams, the Yankees will wear alternative jerseys this weekend, meaning they will have names on their backs and no pinstripes. Commissioner Rob Manfred, who grew up a Yankee fan, said, "Modern civilization is going to probably survive."

Two weeks after ripping former Jets teammate Brandon Marshall, Sheldon Richardson was a man of few words today when asked about facing Marshall on Saturday in the annual Jets-Giants game. No doubt, he was instructed to avoid commenting on Marshall, who has a shoulder injury.

Jets injury update: RB Matt Forte (hamstring) participated in team drills for the first time since July 31, albeit on a limited basis. He said he hopes to play Saturday and he's confident he'll be ready for Week 1. This isn't as severe as last summer's hamstring injury, which he said involved a tear and required an injection. CB Morris Claiborne (shoulder), TE Jordan Leggett (foot) and LB Darron Lee (illness) sat out, but the injuries aren't believed to be serious. DL Anthony Johnson (stinger) also didn't practice.

If you arrived from outer space and landed at today's Jets practice, you'd draw this conclusion about their quarterback situation: They have no clue as to who will start. Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty split the first-team reps, with presumptive starter Josh McCown barely getting on the field. This looks like a Hackenberg vs. Petty day. Enough experimenting; it's time to settle on a lineup.
