Yankees continue to be impressed by Estevan Florial

Published

on

BOSTON — Estevan Florial still might be a part of the Yankees’ long-term future.

At this point, though, they need him to produce right now, and the 23-year-old delivered a key hit in the stunning, 4-3 win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Saturday.

His leadoff double off Nathan Eovaldi in the top of the eighth sparked a four-run rally.

“Every time I’m with [Florial] personally, whether it’s spring training or getting called up, he always seems to be doing something,” manager Aaron Boone said. “It shows why we’re excited about him. … It’s a tough environment to play in, and he acquitted himself well.”

The long-time prospect called his performance at the plate “so-so” and acknowledged that he isn’t sure if he’s here to stay.

“I’ve been able to come up here and help the team,’’ Florial said. “Right now, it’s not about me. There’s gonna be a time for the Yankees to make a decision. … I trust the Yankees.”

The Yankees are slowly getting whole again after their COVID-19 outbreak.

Gio Urshela could be in the lineup on Sunday against the Red Sox depending on how he feels and Aaron Judge and Kyle Higashioka are expected to arrive in Boston on Sunday and to travel with the team to Tampa on Monday.

Judge and Higashioka will go through further testing to make sure they are ready to go, according to Boone, and will then workout at the team’s minor league complex in Tampa on Monday’s off-day.

Asked if Judge could potentially return for Tuesday’s opener against the Rays, Boone pointed more toward later in the series.

“I know Monday is a big day for he and [Higashioka],’’ Boone said.

He added the hard artificial turf at Tropicana Field would not play a role in whether Judge plays, though it has taken a toll on his legs in the past.


Chris Gittens left the game after tripping over his bat on a comebacker during an at-bat in the top of the eighth. He was getting X-rays on his ankle after the game and his status for Sunday unknown. Luke Voit is already on the IL with left knee inflammation. DJ LeMahieu moved from third base to first, with Tyler Wade, who’d pinch-run for Giancarlo Stanton earlier, played third.


The Stanton experiment in left field hadn’t taken place, but Boone said he was “leaning” toward playing him there for the series finale against the Red Sox on Sunday at Fenway Park.

It’s unclear why Sunday would be the best day for Stanton to take the field for the first time since 2019, since the Yankees barely have enough competent hitters to field a competitive lineup, even with Stanton at DH.

The initial thought was that Stanton in left would free up the DH spot for someone else, but Judge and Urshela remain out with COVID-19. Asked if Gary Sanchez could get a DH day Sunday if his back is healthy enough, Boone said that was not in the plans.

Still, Boone said Stanton could “potentially” be in left field Sunday.

“We’ve had a lot of stuff happen as a team with us the last week or two,’’ Boone said of what will go into the decision on Sunday. “He is an option right now. … There’s a good chance [Stanton] is out there [Sunday].”


Luis Severino threw to live hitters again Saturday, and it went well, according to Boone and pitching coach Matt Blake.

Coming back from a strained groin suffered during his second rehab start in his return from February 2020 Tommy John surgery, Severino faced Urshela and Tyler Wade in the two-inning, 38-pitch session.

They’ll wait to see how the right-hander bounces back before determining his next step, which would likely be either a three-inning live BP or a rehab start in Tampa.

Boone said Corey Kluber felt good following his first bullpen session since being sidelined with a shoulder strain in May.

“That’s encouraging,’’ Boone said. “He’s in line for another bullpen.”

Kluber isn’t expected to rejoin the rotation before September.


Asher Wojciechowski elected free agency rather than accepting an assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Wojciechowski was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Thursday to make room for Sal Romano a day after starting the Yankees’ win over the Phillies.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.
