Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, Joey Gallo and Josh Donaldson homered to back 6 1/3 strong innings from Gerrit Cole and boost the visiting New York Yankees to a 10-4 rout of the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.

New York secured at least a split of the four-game weekend series with Chicago while winning for the 17th time in 19 games overall. The White Sox fell to 1-9 in their past 10 games against the Yankees, who have outscored Chicago 25-11 in the series thus far.

Stanton, who smacked two home runs Thursday night, connected for a two-run shot against White Sox starter Vince Velasquez with two outs in the first inning.

Aaron Hicks and Donaldson delivered RBI doubles around DJ LeMahieu's run-scoring groundout one inning later to push the New York advantage to 5-0. Judge hit a solo shot in the fourth and Gallo followed suit in the fifth as the surging Yankees teed off on Velasquez (2-3).

After pitching to a 0.84 ERA while winning his past two starts entering Friday, Velasquez allowed seven runs on eight hits in five innings with three walks and four strikeouts.

Cole (3-0) seized the run support en route to defeating the White Sox for the third time in four career starts. He scattered three runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings with one walk and nine strikeouts. Cole has fanned at least nine batters in three of his past four starts.

Chicago drew to within 7-3 on Gavin Sheets' two-run home run in the sixth. Luis Robert reached on an infield single, his second hit of the game, before Sheets launched his third home run in the past four games.

Sheets also had a pair of hits. Robert scored Chicago's first run on a Cole balk in the fourth inning. Reese McGuire capped the scoring with an RBI single in the ninth.

Gleyber Torres and Isiah Kiner-Falefa each had two-hit games for the Yankees along with Judge, Donaldson, Stanton and Gallo. Donaldson had three RBIs.

Chicago White Sox ace right-hander Lucas Giolitio was placed on the COVID-19 list prior to Friday's game against the New York Yankees.

Giolito wasn't slated to face the Yankees this weekend. He last pitched Tuesday when he gave up one run and six hits over seven innings in a victory over the Cleveland Guardians.

The 27-year-old Giolito experienced symptoms earlier this week.

Giolito is 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA in five starts this season. He has struck out 37 in 26 2/3 innings.

Chicago also activated outfielder Andrew Vaughn (bruised right hand) from the 10-day injured list. Vaughn went 2-for-7 with two homers during a two-game rehab stint at Triple-A Charlotte.

Vaughn, 24, is batting .283 with four homers and 12 RBIs in 16 games for the White Sox this season.

White Sox hope Vince Velasquez can shut down Yankees' big bats

Following the Yankees' win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday, New York manager Aaron Boone said his team can win in a number of ways, including scoring often late in games.

After opening their four-game series Thursday against the host Chicago White Sox by scoring eight times in the final two innings, the Yankees seek a fifth straight win when the teams meet again Friday night.

New York is 16-2 in its past 18 games and its 23-8 start is its best since 2003. The Yankees have scored 62 of their 150 runs in the seventh inning or beyond after scoring nine times in their final three innings of a 15-7 win over the White Sox on Thursday.

The late explosion came after Yankees reliever Jonathan Loaisiga gave up a tying three-run homer to Yoan Moncada in the seventh.

"It's something we've been doing all year," New York right fielder Aaron Judge said. "It speaks volumes to the type of guys we have in this clubhouse. It doesn't matter what the score is."

Judge hit his major-league-leading 11th homer in the seventh against Ryan Burr and a two-run, tiebreaking infield single off Joe Kelly in New York's seven-run eighth. Giancarlo Stanton, who has seven homers and 20 RBIs in his past 14 games, hit a pair of two-run homers off Dylan Cease and a two-run single off Tanner Banks in the eighth.

The Yankees scored in six innings, had nine players score runs and drew seven walks.

"It's great," Boone said. "We've talked about winning in different ways and finding ways to win, and tonight was a little bit of different. We gave up some runs and kept pouring on, so just a great job by the offense tonight."

Chicago is 7-3 in its past 10 games overall but also 1-8 in its past nine games against the Yankees. While Moncada homered, Chicago's other big names did little Thursday. Tim Anderson, Jose Abreu and Luis Robert were a combined 1-for-14.

Chicago is coming off its worst pitching performance of the season as it allowed season-high totals of runs and hits (15).

"I mean, you had to see it to believe it," White Sox manager Tony La Russa said. "I still don't believe it.

Gerrit Cole (2-0, 2.67 ERA), who is 2-0 with a 0.47 ERA in his past three outings, will start for the Yankees on Friday. He allowed one run on five hits in 6 1/3 innings and struck out 10 in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Texas Rangers on Sunday. He wound up with a no-decision after allowing Kole Calhoun's tying homer on his final pitch.

Cole is 2-1 with a 3.79 ERA in three career starts against the White Sox. He last faced them May 22, 2021, in New York, when he allowed four hits in seven scoreless innings.

Chicago will send Vince Velasquez (2-2, 3.97 ERA) to the mound. In his past two starts, Velasquez went 2-0 with a 0.84 ERA while limiting opponents to a .189 average (7-for-37). He last pitched on May 6 in Boston, where he allowed one run on three hits in five innings.

Velasquez is 0-1 with a 3.26 ERA in four career appearances (three starts) against the Yankees. He last faced them on June 12, 2021, in Philadelphia, when he allowed two runs in five innings.

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees

Yankees GM offers vague update on Aaron Judge extension talks

The New York Yankees and their star slugger, Aaron Judge, both are enjoying strong starts to the 2022 season, but there is no guarantee the relationship will survive beyond this year.

On Wednesday, general manager Brian Cashman talked about Judge's contract situation by saying he wouldn't be talking about it through the media.

"We're not going to talk about it now going forward," Cashman said before the Yankees hosted the Toronto Blue Jays. "Whether that means we're not going to talk, I'm not saying that, but we're not going to talk about it (publicly). But he's been great. But that's no surprise, because he is great."

Judge, 30, turned down a reported $230.5 million deal to keep him under contract for eight seasons. He is hitting .290 with a .356 on-base percentage through 28 games entering Wednesday and was on top of the home run list in the majors with 10.

The Yankees defeated the Blue Jays 6-5 on Tuesday on Judge's first career walk-off home run.

The sides could still agree on an extension this season, preventing Judge from entering free agency.

As his Opening Day deadline for an extension arrived, Judge expressed displeasure at the contract terms being made public, but Cashman downplayed that issue on Wednesday.

"I'm not aware of any of that," Cashman said. "His camp knew all about it, so I assume he knew all about it. It certainly doesn't feel like (he's upset) when I've interacted with him since."

Judge, who played in career game No. 600 on Tuesday, is in his seventh season -- all with the Yankees. He had 168 home runs, 388 RBIs, 26 stolen bases and a career average of .277 entering Wednesday's game.

A 2013 first-round pick of the Yankees out of Fresno State, Judge was the American League Rookie of the Year in 2017 and is a three-time All-Star and two-time Silver Slugger award winner.

Blue Jays RHP Yimi Garcia, pitching coach ejected over hit batter

Toronto Blue Jays reliever Yimi Garcia, pitching coach Pete Walker and manager Charlie Montoyo were ejected from Tuesday's game against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium after Garcia hit New York third baseman Josh Donaldson with a pitch in the sixth inning.

Donaldson, a former Blue Jay, was hit in the back by a 94 mph fastball two pitches after Garcia allowed a tying home run to Giancarlo Stanton.

The umpires briefly conferred and did not issue a warning but ejected Garcia. Montoyo argued demonstratively and appeared to get tossed, but instead Walker was ejected by crew chief and first base umpire Alfonso Marquez.

In the seventh, New York reliever Jonathan Loaisiga threw a 96 mph fastball up and in at Bo Bichette. Montoyo promptly started yelling from the dugout and was ejected by plate umpire Lance Barrett.

The sequence began about 15 minutes after DJ LeMahieu doubled to end a no-hit bid by starter Yusei Kikuchi. Kikuchi was lifted after retiring Anthony Rizzo on a fly ball to the warning track in center field.

David Phelps entered for Garcia, who did not record an out, and completed the inning for the Blue Jays.

Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson's one-game suspension for an obscene gesture was reduced to a fine, ESPN reported Tuesday.

Major League Baseball announced the one-game ban on April 22, two days after Anderson flashed a middle finger toward fans during a 2-1 loss to the Guardians in Cleveland.

Anderson appealed the suspension and won, per the report. The amount of the fine was not disclosed.

Entering Tuesday, Anderson is batting .330 with four homers and 10 RBIs in 24 games this season.

Anderson, 28, was a first-time All-Star in 2021, when he batted .309 with 17 home runs and 61 RBIs. He won the American League batting title with a .335 average in 2019.

Earlier this season, Anderson served out a two-game suspension to start the year following a 2021 end-of-season incident in which he made contact with an umpire during a Sept. 27 game with the Detroit Tigers.

The Chicago White Sox on Monday activated third baseman Yoan Moncada (oblique) and right-hander Joe Kelly (right biceps nerve issue) from the injured list.

Neither has played yet this season. Moncada is expected to make his debut Monday night against the Cleveland Guardians.

In corresponding moves, the White Sox placed LHP Aaron Bummer on the 15-day injured list (retroactive to May 7) with a right knee strain and optioned INF Jake Burger to Triple-A Charlotte.

Moncada hasn't played since Chicago's American League Division Series loss to Houston last year. He suffered a right oblique strain on the last day of spring training and landed on the injured list before excelling during a six-game rehab stint at Charlotte.

Moncada went 7-for-22 and hit two home runs for the Knights.

Moncada, 26, played in 144 games last season for Chicago, hitting .263 with a .375 on-base percentage, 14 home runs and 61 RBIs.

Kelly, 33, appeared in 48 games last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He went 2-0 and struck out 50 in 44 innings and posted a 2.86 ERA.

Bummer, 28, is 0-1 with a 4.91 ERA in 12 appearances this season.

Burger, 26, is batting .239 with two home runs and seven RBI over 21 games this season.

Chicago White Sox outfielder Andrew Vaughn continues to experience pain in his right hand as a result of being hit by a pitch and was placed on the injured list Thursday, retroactive to May 2.

Vaughn, the team leader in RBIs (12), was injured April 29 when he was hit on the right hand by a pitch from Los Angeles right-hander Mike Mayers. He was diagnosed with a bruise and hasn't played since the injury occurred.

"If you think about how long ago it was, it shows you that the bruise is deep and it's a tough spot to handle it," White Sox manager Tony La Russa said.

Vaughn, 24, is hitting .283 (15-for-53) with three doubles, four home runs and five runs scored in 16 games this season. Vaughn is tied for the team lead in homers.

Infielder Danny Mendick, 28, was recalled from Class AAA Charlotte. He has played 10 games with the White Sox this season.

Third baseman Jake Burger was held out of Wednesday's game against the Cubs with soreness from colliding with the wall in foul ground Tuesday.

Injuries piled up on the White Sox in the first month of the season. Third baseman Yoan Moncada (oblique), right-handed reliever Joe Kelly (biceps), outfielder Eloy Jimenez (hamstring) and right-hander Lance Lynn (knee) are all currently on the injured list.

Jimenez had surgery on a torn hamstring tendon last month. Moncada could be back next week, La Russa said.

The Chicago White Sox, who snapped an eight-game losing streak on Wednesday, provided additional good news when they announced third baseman Yoan Moncada (strained oblique) and right-handed reliever Joe Kelly (right biceps nerve issue) are set for rehab assignments beginning on Friday.

Moncada and Kelly will report to Triple-A Charlotte, according to White Sox manager Tony La Russa.

"I'm excited," Moncada said Wednesday, via interpreter Billy Russo. "I'm excited to be able to start playing again. I was wishing for that for several weeks.

"For me personally, it's been very, very difficult not being able to be on the field and helping the team, especially this month."

Moncada, 26, played in 144 games last season for Chicago, hitting .263 with a .375 on-base percentage, 14 home runs and 61 RBIs.


"He's been swinging really well here, so he may come out there and just ... 15 at-bats and look like he's ready," La Russa said. "But it may take him 25, no way to predict it. It's always a mistake to bring a guy up to the big leagues before he's ready because he's going to struggle, and then he's got to get out of the struggle. It's better to come in here ready to play."

Kelly, 33, appeared in 48 games last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He went 2-0 and struck out 50 hitters in 44 innings and posted a 2.86 ERA.

Report: ‘Yankee Letter’ reveals use of replay room to decode signs

April 26, 2022, 8:30 PM

The New York Yankees were fined $100,000 for using their video replay room to decode signs and passing them on to runners at second base in 2016 and 2017, the infamous "Yankee Letter" obtained by SNY revealed Tuesday.

The letter from MLB commissioner Rob Manfred to Yankees general manager Brian Cashman dated Sept. 14, 2017, which the Yankees fought the release of, revealed the Yankees' sins didn't come close to those of the Houston Astros' sign-stealing scandal that roiled Major League Baseball.

In fact, the Yankees were doing what many other teams were thought to be doing at the time.

The Yankees used the system in 2015 and 2016 but apparently ceased the illegal operation in 2017 and, more importantly, did not do it after Manfred banned electronic sign stealing in September 2017, per SNY.

"The Yankees' use of the dugout phone to relay information about an opposing Club's signs during the 2015 season, and part of the 2016 season, constitutes a material violation of the Replay Review Regulations," Manfred wrote to Cashman. "By using the phone in the video review room to instantaneously transmit information regarding signs to the dugout in violation of the Regulations, the Yankees were able to provide real-time information to their players regarding an opposing Club's sign sequence -- the same objective of the Red Sox's scheme that was the subject of the Yankees' complaint."

The letter also cleared the Yankees of using YES Network cameras to steal signs, something the Boston Red Sox alleged.

"My office has thoroughly investigated the Red Sox's claims in this regard and has concluded they are without merit," Manfred wrote.

The Red Sox were fined an undisclosed amount for real-time electronic sign-stealing using Apple Watches. The Red Sox relayed sign sequences to runners on second base. The Astros did it in real time without the use of runners on second, banging on garbage cans to relay pitches to batters in real time.

The fines assessed to both the Yankees and Red Sox went to Hurricane Irma relief as a part of Major League Baseball Charities.

The letter will be released later by MLB later this week, according to SNY.
