Yankees starter Sonny Gray spent part of this week working on a small mechanical tweak that was intended to help prevent him from overthinking between pitches. It seemed to work in an efficient, 10-pitch first inning. But it didn't work much beyond that Friday. He was pulled in the fourth after having thrown 73 pitches. Gray finished the night having allowed five runs and walking four. He induced just two whiffs on 25 swings. It was the second-fewest swing-and-miss total of his career. He also didn't strikeout a batter for the second time in his career.

Giancarlo Stanton has been slowly putting it together at Yankee Stadium this week. After going hitless in the two-game series vs. Miami early this week, he now has two hits in two games against Toronto this week. His third-inning two-run homer Friday was the surest sign that he's easing out of his home slump. The blast with a 110-mph exit velocity went out to right field. When Stanton headed back out to play in RF the next half inning, he got a loud ovation from the fans out there.

About the passed ball that led to one of the two unearned runs CC Sabathia allowed, the pitcher took the blame. "My fault, my mistake, we got crossed up." He said he saw the sign he wanted to see instead of what Gary Sanchez actually put down.

On CC Sabathia's 71-pitch outing, in which he didn't allow an earned run, Aaron Boone said: "He gave us what we needed." The Yankees weren't going to work him much beyond 70 or 80 pitches tonight, Boone added.

A late Aaron Judge insurance home run proved necessary for the Yankees. It came a half inning before the Blue Jays threatened with a rally in the eighth. After limiting Toronto to one run in that inning, the Yankees opened the series with a 4-3 win Thursday night in the Bronx. Aroldis Chapman was lights out in the ninth, striking out the side. Giancarlo Stanton, who had been struggling at home, snapped a 0-for-15 hitting slump when he reached on an infield single. He also avoided striking out for the first time in four games. It's the second strikeout-free game he's had at home this season.

The Yankees announced today their new "Honor Row" initiative, a project that will honor various community groups monthly throughout the season by allowing them to sit in the Judge's Chambers in right. A group of Bronx public school students and teachers will be the first 18 Honor Row honorees next Thursday when the Yankees host the Twins in a day game.

Clint Frazier (concussion) continues progressing, according to Aaron Boone. The Yankees OF is "working out full bore" with the Yankees' affiliate in Tampa on Thursday night, per Boone. He'll be taking batting practice and doing some defensive work. Perhaps "in the very near future" he'll appear in games, Boone said. He also said Greg Bird (ankle) and Brandon Drury (blurred vision are taking positive steps getting on-field work, too. "So hopefully guys are starting to tread in the right way, and obviously looking forward to getting a lot of those guys back in the mix."

Aaron Boone said today the MRI that right-handed reliever Tommy Kahnle had this week revealed bicep tendinitis and some shoulder tendinitis. The team doesn't believe the injury is serious, but Kahnle will be shut down the next 10 days or so. Said Boone: "It could be something that's a few weeks before he's back." Kahnle's velocity had been going down slightly in recent appearances. The Yankees hope when he returns, his pitch speed will, too.

The Yankees have officially moved CC Sabathia off the disabled list ahead of his start tonight. As he comes off, though, another player goes on it. Pitcher Luis Cessa was sent today to the 10-day DL, retroactive to Wednesday, due to a left oblique injury he received Tuesday night.

Yankees 1B Tyler Austin says he had his appeal hearing today with MLB officials, regarding his role in last week's brawl with the Red Sox. He was told he may not hear anything more on his appeal until next week.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

It happened. Giancarlo Stanton won't be batting third tonight versus the Blue Jays. As Aaron Boone hinted he may do, he's moved the DH in the order: Gardner CF Judge RF Gregorius SS Stanton DH Sanchez C Hicks CF Walker 1B Wade 2B Torreyes 3B Sabathia SP
