As he celebrates his 26th birthday today, here's an interesting stat about Aaron Judge from the Yankees. Only three Yankees in the past 50 years have hit more homers than Judge's 63 before their 26th bdays: Don Mattingly (94), Bobby Murcer (77), Derek Jeter (70). Remember, Judge made his MLB debut at 24. Mattingly made his at 21, Murcer at 19 and Jeter at 20. One of Judge's 63 homers actually came on his birthday. He hit a homer in a 3-1 win over Boston last April 26.

RB Paul Perkins not participating in Giants minicamp because of a pectoral injury. It occurred before the offseason program and he had a procedure. The Giants are short on running backs right now. Hmmmmmm.

Jets daily draft nugget: Finally, it's draft day! They have six picks, but they're hoping to acquire more through trades. The six: Round 1 (3 overall), Round 3 (72), Round 4 (103), Round 5 (148), Round 6 (165) and Round 7 (209). They like the running-back depth and could go for a back in the third round. Defensive end and cornerback also are big needs. Player to watch: Troubled WR Antonio Callaway, who has a list of off-the-field issues. The Jets had him in for a top-30 visit. He'd be a highly controversial selection.

Aaron Judge was discussing after the game what the Yankees need to do to stay hot. "The biggest thing is to just get some runners on when Didi's hitting. That's the only thing we need to do," he said, smiling. Nothing that Gregorius is doing right now surprises him. Added Judge: "It's pretty cool to just see that as a teammate. All the hard work he's put in over the years ... I'm excited for the rest of the year for him."

How bad did the fog get at Yankee Stadium tonight? Aaron Judge said it got tough to track anything that went as high as the upper deck. Weren't the most favorable conditions by the end of the game.
