Yankees’ Giancarlo Stanton passes first two outfield tests

Published

on

MIAMI — After not playing the field for more than two years, Giancarlo Stanton was back in left field on Saturday for a second straight game.

“He came in feeling good [Saturday] and he looked really good [Friday],” Aaron Boone said before the Yankees’ 4-2 win over the Marlins at loanDepot Park.

Afterward, Stanton said he “felt comfortable” in the outfield, though he’s yet to be challenged.
Boone remained hopeful Stanton could become an option in the outfield, even when the Yankees are playing in American League parks, which would enable them to use other players in the DH spot.

“I was really encouraged,’’ Boone said of what he saw from Stanton defensively on Friday. “Not surprised. He’s always been a very good outfielder.”

If Stanton’s body allows, he could conceivably play the field once or twice a week, according to Boone.

That could wind up being important, especially after the Yankees held onto Luke Voit at Friday’s trade deadline, even after the acquisition of Anthony Rizzo, who is now the regular first baseman.

Voit is still taking swings and regaining his form while on the IL with left knee inflammation.

Boone said he believes Voit can still be a key player on the roster, despite an obvious spot.

“There’s no denying what a good player and hitter Luke Voit is,’’ Boone said. “Situations can change hourly. … We’ll get him at-bats and get him rolling. We know what he can mean and there are avenues to get him out there.”

Boone said they would evaluate those possibilities “day by day and week by week.”
And he’s not worried about the potential role change impacting Voit’s attitude.

“In the end, he’s a pro,’’ Boone said. “He’s gone in and worked his tail off the last couple days to make sure he’s physically ready.”


Gio Urshela and DJ LeMahieu were both held out of the starting lineup again on Saturday.

Urshela is dealing with a tight left hamstring, while LeMahieu is out with a strained right triceps.

LeMahieu underwent an MRI exam Saturday that showed the strain that Boone said “shouldn’t be something that keeps him out too long.”

Urshela pinch-hit and struck out in the Yankees’ win over the Marlins and though Boone said both players were day-to-day, he added Urshela is “doubtful” for Sunday’s series finale and LeMahieu “might not start.”


Domingo German wore a ‘16’ on his hat during his start to pay tribute to Jose Fernandez, the former pitcher that starred with the Marlins before being killed in a boating accident in 2016.

German, who allowed two runs in four innings, spent time in the Marlins’ system and knew Fernandez, who would have turned 29 Saturday.

“He was a really good person,’’ German said of Fernandez through an interpreter. “He made sure we had spikes and sneakers, were doing the right things and was always giving us good advice.”


Joey Gallo was slumping before his trade to the Yankees from Texas and he’s still looking for his first hit with his new team. He walked and was robbed of a single in the ninth by Jazz Chisholm. Gallo is now 2-for-36 with four runs, a homer, three RBIs, three walks and 18 strikeouts in his last 11 games.


Clay Holmes entered with a two-run lead in the seventh and didn’t allow a baserunner. Acquired from Pittsburgh in exchange for minor leaguers Hoy Park and Diego Castillo, Holmes impressed Boone with “electric stuff.”

“It pops off the screen,’’ said Boone, who avoided Zack Britton and Aroldis Chapman because they had pitched in three of four days. “You can’t lean on everyone, every night.”


Left-hander Andrew Heaney, acquired in a trade with the Angels on Friday, was placed on the roster Saturday. Boone said he was scheduled to start Monday in The Bronx, with Cortes going back to a long-relief/spot starter role. To make room on the roster for Heaney, right-hander Sal Romano was designated for assignment. Romano threw 2 ¹/₃ shutout innings in two innings with the Yankees.


Clarke Schmidt had his rehab assignment moved to Low-A Tampa on Saturday. He’s coming back from a strained elbow suffered during spring training.

“We just want to get him going and get his season on track to get built up where he can pitch the final months,’’ Boone said.


It’s becoming less likely that Deivi Garcia will get back to The Bronx anytime soon, as his nightmare season continued Saturday when he allowed four runs — and three homers — in just one inning for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

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.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
