Beat-up New York Yankees outpitch Detroit Tigers, 3-1

Yes, it's April Fool's Day, but this is no joke: New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton has been placed on the 10-day disabled list.

"I wasn't sure if it was a cramp or something more significant", Stanton said Monday. Guys will just have to step up and get the job done while some of these guys are down. Left-hander CC Sabathia is expected to join them Wednesday after completing his five-game suspension for hitting a batter with a pitch last September.

According to, Wade had just left the shower at PNC Field, where he played with the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, when he was told he was needed in NY. Aaron Hicks is also on the DL to start the season, as is Didi Gregorius, who will miss at least the first half of the season. The Yankees reportedly discussed a three-way trade with the Miami Marlins and New York Mets that would've sent Noah Syndergaard to the Bronx.

"I stayed last night". Says in the next couple weeks they will ramp up exercises and see how he responds. As the club nurses Andujar's injury, a more definitive answer will emerge about his status for the rest of the season.

"You have a chance to be a pretty good player in this league for a long time, and nothing's changed there", Boone recalled telling him.

Tyler Wade had a strong Spring Training for the Yankees, but hasn't played any Minor League baseball yet, as Scranton begins play on Thursday (4/4).

The Tigers will counter with Jordan Zimmermann, who began his fifth season with Detroit by carrying a flawless game for 6 2/3 innings and getting a no-decision in Thursday's 10-inning win at Toronto.

"I didn't pay for it, thank God", Wade said, "because it would have been a lot". In his 14 starts of the 2018 season, German pitched an 8.36 first-inning ERA.
