Bats slowing down in the Bronx

After a strong start to the season, Aaron Judge & Co. have seen their batting averages plummet. The Yankees have dropped to a .248 BA as a team since the All-Star break, compared to their .264 mark beforehand.

Updating the Jets' QB competition: Presumptive starter Josh McCown got the bulk of the reps in practice. It was a solid day for McCown (37 reps), who completed 18 of 28 passes, with two touchdowns. He threw an interception on the final play of practice (Marcus Maye), a desperation throw with time running out. Christian Hackenberg (28 reps) was 10-for-19, with a touchdown and an interception. Bryce Petty (13 reps) was 7-for-11, with a touchdown. Bottom line: Not a whole lot has changed. We're almost three weeks into camp, and it's still McCown's job.

Jets play of the day: Enjoying his best day of training camp, WR Robby Anderson made a leaping, one-handed grab on a deep sideline pass by Bryce Petty. Later, Anderson scored twice in a red-zone period. Clearly, he's their No. 1 receiver, and it's not even close. Early in practice, Charone Peake and Jalin Marshall had bad drops. Marshall's drop came on a perfectly thrown deep ball by Christian Hackenberg. This receiving group is young and inconsistent.

Jets injury report: RB Matt Forte remained out of team drills, nursing a hamstring injury. Don't expect him to play Saturday night against the Lions. RB Bilal Powell practiced fully for the second straight day after a neck injury, and was more involved in the offense. WR Marquess Wilson (hip) sat out for the second straight day.

Jets WR/PR Lucky Whitehead will have surgery to repair his broken foot, per Todd Bowles. No word on the timetable, he said, but it doesn't appear to be a season-ending injury.

Mets GM Sandy Alderson was not happy with Robert Gsellman, who had told a reporter "I don't really care" when told of Alderson's comment of "he needs to pitch better" on Tuesday. But Alderson did say "I'm going to give him a pass" since Gsellman was pitching Wednesday, his first start since June 27. Gsellman has a 6.16 ERA in 76 IP in 2017. "I hope he reflects on the implications of that statement and the potential consequences of that statement and gives a better response the next time out," Alderson said.

Judge, Stanton heading in different directions

Aaron Judge was leading the home run pack before the All-Star break, but Giancarlo Stanton has gone above and beyond since then, tripling the amount of homers the rookie has hit since the Home Run Derby.

Judge's struggles in perspective

Aaron Judge struck out for the 32nd consecutive game on Tuesday night, moving him into a tie with Adam Dunn (2012) for the longest single-season streak by a non-pitcher in MLB history. However, his funk has been statistically worse than Dunn's.

Here's a case of one former Jets quarterback (Ryan Fitzpatrick) tweaking another (Mark Sanchez): On last night's episode of "Hard Knocks," Bucs QBs Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston are chatting in the locker room at halftime. Fitzpatrick tells him to grab a hot dog. "I've never seen a hot dog in here," Winston says. Fitzpatrick tells him they're in the back room, adding, "Just don't do a 'Sanchez' and eat one on the sideline." Winston: "He had one on the sideline?" Fitz: "Respect the game."
