Stanton has right quad strain; Reactions to Torres’ dazzling game one; Voit takes on the hype man role

MLB: ALDS-New York Yankees at Minnesota Twins Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports | Randy Miller: Giancarlo Stanton suffered a right calf strain during Saturday night’s game, Aaron Boone told members of the media. As a result, the left fielder didn’t make the starting lineup in Game Two of the ALCS. Boone believes it’s a day-to-day issue, and Stanton could play a role later in the series. For now though, the injury bug has reared its head one more time.

Sports Illustrated | Tom Verducci: Gleyber Torres stole the show in Game One against the Astros. He went 3-for-5 with five RBI, further establishing him as one of the game’s great young stars. Verducci’s piece features interviews with the Yankees, none of whom seem too surprised by the 22-year-old’s breakout performance. | Brendan Kuty: When the Yankees announced their ALCS roster, Luke Voit found himself on the outside looking in. The first baseman, while disappointed, has a plan for the series. “I’ve just got to keep a positive mindset, make sure I’m getting my work in every day and be the biggest cheerleader on the bench,” Voit told Kuty. The 28-year-old certainly brings the personality, so they could do a lot worse for a hype man on the bench.
