Yankees’ Tim Locastro tears ACL after making leaping catch

Published

on

The Yankees’ outfield depth took another hit Saturday when Tim Locastro tore his right ACL while making a leaping catch in the Yankees’ 3-1, six-inning win over the Red Sox.

Manager Aaron Boone said the Yankees would discuss how they wanted to handle the loss of yet another outfielder following the win, but they’ll likely have to add someone.

Locastro made the grab on Alex Verdugo’s fly ball in foul territory in left field, banging his right knee against the wall after pulling in the catch.

With a runner on second, Locastro got up and threw the ball into the infield — saving a run, as DJ LeMahieu pointed out.

Locastro initially stayed in the game after a visit from the training staff, but was replaced in the second inning by Tyler Wade, who entered the game in right field, while Greg Allen moved from right to left.

Allen, Trey Amburgey and Hoy Jun Park had been called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre the previous two days as the Yankees dealt with another COVID-19 outbreak.

Estevan Florial and Ryan LaMarre could be options to be promoted from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre as the Yankees churn through outfielders.


Boone said Clint Frazier is working out, running and lifting weights, but is not doing baseball activities as the Yankees try to determine what’s wrong with the sidelined left fielder.

Boone said Frazier is due to see another eye specialist on Monday.

“A lot has been [about] getting a proper diagnosis and proper care,’’ the manager said. “At that point, with baseball activities, we’ll cross that bridge.”

Considering Frazier has been out since July 2, Boone said he would need a rehab assignment whenever he is able to return.

But the Yankees also need to get Frazier right, whenever he is ready to come back.

Anointed the starting left fielder during the offseason, Frazier’s production plummeted before he hit the IL, with his OPS dropping from .905 a year ago to .633 this season.


Jameson Taillon called having six players sidelined with COVID-19 “a little uneasy. At this point, this is our new normal, I guess.”

Taillon has had a rocky first season in The Bronx and heads into his scheduled start on Sunday with a 4.90 ERA, the lowest it has been since his first start of the year.

“I’m happy I still feel healthy and have been able to make all my starts,’’ said Taillon, who is coming off his second Tommy John surgery. “Everything going forward is just pitching-related.”


Luke Voit has fairly consistent in doing two things since the Yankees acquired the first baseman in 2018: hitting homers and getting hurt.

He has done a lot more of the latter this season after leading the majors with 22 homers a year ago.

Along with the COVID-19 outbreak the Yankees are dealing with, they also placed Voit on the 10-day IL with left knee inflammation on Friday — his third IL stint of the season.

Boone said there “are some things we’re considering with Luke moving forward [and] adjustments to keep him healthy moving forward.”

What they’ve done so far hasn’t worked. He also has had IL stints for an abdominal strain and a sports hernia that plagued him throughout the second half of 2019, a torn meniscus in his left knee this spring training and a strained oblique in May.

That doesn’t include the plantar fasciitis he played through a year ago.

“He’s been a great offensive player for us since we got him,’’ Boone said. “You take that cog, an important piece out of the middle of the lineup, it shrinks the lineup.”

Boone said the Yankees are optimistic Voit won’t be out too long with this injury, but he’s already missing a vital stretch of games with the offense hobbled by COVID-19 absences.

This season, even when Voit has been on the field, he hasn’t been productive, with just three homers and a .698 OPS in 122 plate appearances.

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.
