A look at what’s happening around the majors today:
A DAY TO REMEMBER
Ron Guidry, Bernie Williams and Tino Martinez highlight the Yankees grads who will perform ahead of a matchup with the Kansas City Royals at Old-Timers’ Day in the Bronx.
There will be no game reunion this season as New York is canceling the exhibition due to too many of the retired players in attendance recovering from various surgeries. But there will still be a pregame ceremony on the field at Yankee Stadium, also attended by David Cone, Bucky Dent and Aaron Boone, as well as Yankees spouses Joan Ford (wife of Whitey), Jill Martin (wife of Billy) and Diana Munson (wife of Thurman) and Kay Murcer (wife of Bobby).
After that, Aaron Judge is aiming for the fences again after becoming the first major league player this season to hit 40 home runs on Friday night. He wasn’t done yet either. The Star Slugger started a grand slam for No. 41 and even stole a home run in right field as the Yankees rallied for an 11-5 win over the Royals. He finished with six RBIs, which gave him a leading 89 in the major leagues.
A season-ending free agent, Judge has eight home runs and 19 RBIs in nine games since the All-Star hiatus. He is on pace for 66 home runs, which would surpass Roger Maris’ club record of 61 in 1961.
All-star pitcher Luis Castillo is on his way to Seattle from Cincinnati after the Mariners acquired perhaps the top starter in the trade market for four minor-league prospects on Friday night.
Seattle, which holds the second of three AL wildcards, has not been in the playoffs since 2001 — the longest postseason drought in North America’s big four pro sports.
“He’s one of the best pitchers in the game. He’s really established himself as a dominant starter,” said Mariners manager Scott Servais. “This year we have the chance to create something really big here. You have to go out there and take a risk every now and then if you ultimately want to get the reward.”
Castillo last served on Wednesday and is looking to make his Mariners debut at Yankee Stadium next week, where Seattle will play a three-game series starting Monday.
KERSHAW AT COORS
Clayton Kershaw is playing in Colorado, his second appearance since the All-Star Game began for the National League on his home hill at Dodger Stadium.
The 34-year-old left-hander, who is 8-5 with a 2.49 ERA, allowed four runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings at home against rival San Francisco on Sunday. A three-time NL Cy Young Award winner, Kershaw is 2-0 in his last four starts and has a 1.67 ERA.
He is 11-7 with a 4.81 ERA at Coors Field, his highest ERA at any ballpark where he has made more than one start.
Los Angeles is 20-4 this month and 67-32 overall, both the best in the majors.
Kyle Freeland (5-7, 4.64) starts for the Rockies. He has a 3.57 ERA on the road but a 5.66 ERA in hitter-friendly Coors, where he has allowed eight of the 12 home runs he has scored.
All-star pitcher Joe Musgrove (8-3, 2.63 ERA) is winless against Minnesota in five starts before his outing for San Diego. Since winning the Chicago Cubs on June 16, he is 0-3 with a 5.34 ERA.
Musgrove and his hometown of Padres are nearing agreement on a five-year, $100 million deal to begin next year. There are still a few days until the deal is finalized.
The right-hander has a salary of $8,625,000 and was on track to qualify for free agency after the World Series.
Sonny Gray (5-3, 3.52) starts for the Twins. He is facing San Diego for the second time, the first since a win in Cincinnati on Aug. 20, 2019, when he conceded one run and four hits in six innings.
Ray’s right-hander Corey Kluber (6-6, 3.91 ERA) is making his second career start against Cleveland – the team he won AL Cy Young Awards for in 2014 and 2017. He pitched six scoreless innings for the New York Yankees against Cleveland most recently on September 17 in a win.
Zach Plesac (2-8, 4.09) goes for the Guardians, who are a game behind first-seeded Minnesota in the AL Central and 1 1/2 behind Tampa Bay for the last AL wildcard.
The rising Toronto Blue Jays are hoping for more good news from top pitcher Alek Manoah, who left the start Friday night against Detroit in the sixth inning after being hit in the right elbow by Jonathan Schoop’s comebacker.
The team said Manoah had a bruise, and X-rays showed no fracture. Manoah then said he felt fine.
“It kind of made my arm clean,” he said. “But after that, realizing it really wasn’t that painful or anything, I tried to fight to stay in. But I think with the number of pitches and the state of the game, knocking me out was a good decision. ”
Manoah is an All-Star for the first time this season and is 11-5 with a 2.43 ERA.
