Sanchez slugs way to rare Yankees feat

Gary Sanchez hit two home runs, his 24th and 25th of the season, in the Yankees' win over the Tigers on Tuesday. He's the first player to hit 25 homers for the Yankees in a season before turning 25 years old since Don Mattingly blasted 35 home runs as a 24-year-old in 1985. (Elias Sports Bureau)

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.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek was at a gym in Manhattan this week to watch a pickup game featuring Carmelo Anthony and other NBA players, per league sources. It's unclear if Hornacek was there to watch/support Anthony or to watch other players in the game but his presence is worth noting given the current situation between the Knicks and Anthony. The club would like to trade Anthony and Anthony would like to be moved but NYK hasn't found a suitable deal yet. Anthony has been working out with trainer Chris Brickley at the Lifetime Fitness gym in Manhattan this summer and playing pickup with several NBA players, including LeBron James and Kevin Durant, at the gym.

Without including Kristaps Porzingis, the Knicks would have been hard pressed (to say the least) to come up with a package like Boston's for Kyrie‬ Irving. Irving had been telling friends that he was open to playing in New York.

Giants going day by day with OBJ, Marshall

Giants coach Ben McAdoo played it coy in his updates on injured wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) and Brandon Marshall (shoulder), saying both players would be evaluated daily.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Re: Michael Bowie -- The Giants are still working through the details. McAdoo needs more information from the other side of the building before Bowie can return. Bowie was charged with domestic abuse. His agent said after a thorough investigation there was never any physical contact, doesn't understand why district attorney is moving forward with case.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Ben McAdoo: Odell Beckham "has an ankle" injury. They'll see how he does in treatment. Brandon Marshall's X-ray negative.

Stats & Info

OBJ's importance in perspective

Odell Beckham Jr. played 961 of the Giants' 1,018 offensive snaps (94.4 percent) last season, the third-highest percentage for any wide receiver in the league behind DeAndre Hopkins and teammate Sterling Shepard.

Manning loses if OBJ misses time

Odell Beckham Jr. hasn't complained about the hit he took Monday that caused his ankle injury, but some of his teammates have voiced their displeasure. If anyone should be upset, it should be his QB, Eli Manning.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Plan is for Odell Beckham to undergo further tests on his ankle in a bit. There remains reason for optimism.

Impossible to replace Odell Beckham Jr.

OBJ accounted for 33.9 percent of his team's receiving yards last season, the highest percentage in the NFL. He could play an entire season without making a catch and still be the Giants' all-time leader in receiving yards per game, ahead of Homer Jones (66.4).
