Here are some notable nuggets that happened during the Yankees’ spring training action on Wednesday:
Gleyber Torres and Giancarlo Stanton both hit right field in the Yankees’ 7-1 win over Baltimore at Steinbrenner Field, with Torres hitting a laser in the fourth and Stanton in the fifth. Torres, Stanton and DJ LeMahieu all hit their first Grapefruit League home runs of the season.
A bad hand dealt
Wandy Peralta drilled Baltimore left fielder DJ Stewart on the left hand, forcing Stewart out of the game. To add insult to injury, Stewart was ruled to have swung out of the inning for a third batter and the final.
Joey Gallo struggled at both plate and left field with the Yankees last year, but he made a nice dive catch at left to take fourth place. He also added a couple of hits, including a double.
The schedule for Thursday
The Yankees are expected to visit the Tigers at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, Fla. with Clarke Schmidt on the mound at 1:05 p.m., but the game is in danger of being washed out with a wet forecast predicted for the entire day .
