Around the Empire: Yankees news - 4/11/18

Judge demolishes HR off Sale; Robinson called up, Peterson DFA’d; Coleman sent to Mets for L.J. Mazzilli

How the Yankees make me feel
Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images | Bryan Hoch: Yesterday’s game sucked. Plain and simple. I watched none of it, but I’m mad at myself for even checking the store about four or five times. The lone bright spot, if you want to call it that, was Aaron Judge demolishing a Chris Sale pitch 444 feet. It was his third hit of the night against Sale and tonight was the first night Judge even got a hit off Sale after going hitless in 12 chances before tonight.

New York Post | Dan Martin: In order to help their depleted outfield depth, the Yankees called Shane Robinson up before yesterday’s game. In order to make room for Robinson, the Yankees designated Jace Peterson for assignment. The team apparently wanted to call up Robinson when they first needed outfield help, but Robinson was sick. Robinson probably won’t stick around for long though as Aaron Hicks started his rehab assignment and is expected to rejoin the team Friday against the Tigers. | Oliver Macklin: The Yankees made a big splash yesterday. Bigger than getting Giancarlo Stanton, who is a Yankee. The Yankees sent Kendall Coleman to the Mets and got L.J. Mazzilli in return. L.J. is short for Lee Junior, as in he’s Lee Mazzilli’s son. The younger Mazzilli is 27 and has never made it to the majors. Coleman is a career .207 hitter in the minors. My thoughts on this trade are “they traded who for who?” In other words: Championship: acquired.
