Around the Empire: Yankees news - 6/21/18

Yankees hitting a historic number of home runs; Yankees approve of Clint Frazier; Gary Sanchez will never hit a triple

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN | Coley Harvey: The Yankees are hitting so many home runs this year that they might actually be on pace to hit the most dingers ever. After their home run barrage on Tuesday night, it’s all anyone will talk about.

New York Post | Dan Martin: Billy Connors, who served as a pitching coach with the Yankees and as an executive in the organization for years, passed away at the age of 76. He had stints with the team in the early ‘90s until he left in 2012. | Brendan Kuty: The Yankees are apparently impressed with how Clint Frazier has been handling being stuck in the minors this season. It is kind of ridiculous that we have to be policing this kid’s personality, even if he has done everything the Yankees have ever asked of him.

Off the Bench | Daniel R. Epstein: Gary Sanchez is actually the best player in baseball history who has never hit a triple in his career (yet). This is mostly just for fun, because no triples doesn’t mean he’s bad.
