Aaron Boone used the expression "real soon" when asked about Gleyber Torres coming off the COVID IL. When asked if anyone who previously tested positive had recently tested negative, Boone said yes but did not name the individual. The MLB/MLBPA joint committee is able to clear players to come off the 10-day IL earlier IF they are completely asymptomatic and have multiple negative laboratory PCR tests.

Aaron Hicks had an MRI in his left wrist, which revealed that he tore "the sheath that holds the tendon in place," per manager Aaron Boone. Hicks is currently taking medication, and it is something that could resolve in the next couple of days or he may need surgery.

Giancarlo Stanton on handling Rich Hill's slow breaking pitches: "You gotta sit back. The ball is going to be traveling for a while, so especially if you're gonna drop down, you gotta wait for it to come back into the zone. Sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it crosses in. The push-pull game he was playing, it's able to work."

Randy Arozarena has 7 HR against the Yankees since making his Rays debut August 20, 2020. Only two players have as many homers against a single opponent in that stretch, Kyle Tucker (7 vs. Angels) and Ronald Acuña Jr. (8 vs. Nationals). It was Arozarena's first HR in 16 games after hitting 3 homers in his first 18. Including the postseason, Arozarena is now hitting .295 with 7 HR and 13 RBI vs. NYY.


Hill strikes out 9, Rays beat COVID-19 impacted Yankees 9-1

— Rich Hill joined Cy Young and Nolan Ryan as the only pitchers to strike out nine against the Yankees at age 41 or older, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat coronavirus-impacted New York 9-0 Thursday night to avoid getting swept in a three-game series.

GM Brian Cashman said the Yankees' COVID outbreak should be evidence of the overall importance of vaccination: “When you read the fine print, they tell you that you still could get the COVID, and the vaccine is to protect you from the symptoms. It's not full protection, but the one thing I take from this is I believe the vaccine is working… We believe it has protected us from obviously something severe or something much more difficult to be handling than we currently are.”

Torres is Yankees' 8th confirmed COVID-19 case

The Yankees placed Gleyber Torres on the COVID-19 injured list after the shortstop tested positive for the coronavirus for the second time in less than a year.

Boone: Torres' positive test was unexpected (2:02)

Aaron Boone said that the Yankees have "very few" members of their traveling party that are not fully vaccinated: "We do not have many people in that boat."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

The Yankees confirm that Gleyber Torres has received a positive COVID-19 diagnosis: "He was fully vaccinated and previously had COVID-19 during the most recent baseball offseason. Torres has been placed on the COVID-19 injured list, and the Yankees have recalled Miguel Andújar from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre."

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky: “With regard to the Yankees, we obviously need to learn more about that situation. My understanding is that six of the seven infections were indeed asymptomatic infections and we will look to more data from that report to understand what happened there. All of the real world data we've seen that's been in the published literature, large studies, in many different settings have demonstrated that those vaccines have a high effectiveness against disease.”

Gerrit Cole has pitched 7 innings tonight as the Yankees take a 1-0 lead into the 8th. Coming into tonight, Cole had allowed 2ER-or-fewer in each of his last 11 regular season starts (since 9/5/20), the longest stretch by a Yankees starting pitcher (excluding openers) since Whitey Ford's 12-start streak from 8/10-9/28/63.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Gerrit Cole gets through the 5th* inning at the Trop on 70 pitches. Game is still scoreless. Cole (who has not allowed a BB tonight) has not allowed a walk and has tossed at least 6 innings in each of his last four starts (since 4/18), tied for the third-longest such stretch in Yankees history. Trails only David Wells' six-game stretch from 9/6/02-4/10/03 and Fritz Peterson's five-game streak from 4/25-5/18/71.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Aaron Boone said Gleyber Torres did not have a positive test, and explained why he is not in the lineup tonight: "No, he's fine. We just have so many of these tests. The joint committee's got to get all these back. And just with all that's going on, they want us to hold him out. But Gleyber is one of those guys, he actually had the virus in in December; has the antibodies, has the vaccination. We do expect that final ruling or whatever, potentially, by tonight."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Jameson Taillon: "If I've learned one thing in the past year, year-and-a-half, it's just you have to be ready to roll with the punches. Nothing is guaranteed anymore. So we'll mask back up, we'll keep our distance, we'll do whatever we have to do to get this season in. We were willing to make big adjustments to the year last year, and we'll do whatever it takes now to keep this thing going.”
