The New York Yankees are getting healthy.And that makes manager Aaron Boone happy.Shortstop Didi Gregorius was activated off the 10-day disabled list Friday and played for the first time since suffering a left heel contusion in an Aug. 19 collision with Toronto first baseman Kendrys Morales. Article continues below ...Gregorius didn’t start but came on as a defensive substitute in the bottom of the sixth inning and likely will start in Saturday’s game against the host Seattle Mariners.“We’ll ease Didi back in David Dahl Jersey , not having played any rehab games,” Boone said. “The hope will be to get him in at some point (Friday). And if everything goes well, probably start him (Saturday) — not necessarily the whole game — and kind of build him back in that way. With September, we have the bodies that we can get other guys in there and not be up against it.”Boone stressed the importance of having Gregorius back, both offensively and defensively.“He’s a left-handed hitter and being able to hit him in different spots throughout the middle of the order, he balances us out,” Boone said. “He’s so steady for us at shortstop. The intangible things he does as far as leading our infield and always has his eye in the dugout, knows where to be. He’s kind of like a quarterback out there at shortstop.”Just as importantly, outfielder Aaron Judge participated in on-field drills Friday for the first time since suffering a fractured right wrist July 26.Judge hit balls off a tee before taking some underhand tosses from hitting coach Marcus Thomas.“This is what we’ve been waiting for this whole time, for that pain to get out of there http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-bryan-shaw-jersey , for him to be able to really swing,” Boone said. “I think he’s starting to get at least a little bit excited about how he’s feeling when he’s swinging the bat. The ball is coming off real nice. Just positive steps for Aaron.”That next step will be batting practice, then some simulated games. Judge has said he hopes to be playing in games within the next two weeks.“Hopefully, now the progression is one that moves now, now that he’s to this point where he can do everything,” Boone said. “Now it’s just a matter of getting back up to baseball speed, building that stamina and then obviously graduating to live pitching, to seeing an actual pitcher.”Yankees right-hander Lance Lynn (8-10, 5.10 ERA) is scheduled to start Saturday against Mariners right-hander Felix Hernandez (8-13, 5.55). Lynn will be facing Seattle for the first time; Hernandez is 10-7 with a 3.00 ERA in 22 career starts against the Yankees. Hernandez won his only start against New York this season Tyler Anderson Jersey , giving up two runs (one earned) in five innings.The Mariners, who are trying to stay in the American League’s wild-card race behind the Yankees and Oakland, also got some good news on the injury front Friday, as left-hander Marco Gonzales threw 35 pitches off the mound.Mariners manager Scott Servais said Gonzales, who has been on the disabled list with a strained cervical muscle in his neck, will be activated in time to start Tuesday against San Diego.Gonzales was 12-5 before going 0-4 with a 10.35 ERA in four August starts.“I want to see the same guy we saw in June and July,” Servais said. “He was cruising. He does feel fine physically and is throwing all his pitches in the bullpen. He probably won’t go as long. First time out, you’re probably looking at 75 pitches or something like that. Again, we just want to see him healthy, executing pitches and feeling good about things.”Meanwhile the Mariners will try to rebound from getting shut out and being held to three hits in its seventh loss in 11 games. BOSTON (AP) — Mookie Betts doesn’t seem to be badly hurt http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-antonio-senzatela-jersey , so the Red Sox can focus on clinching the AL East at Yankee Stadium for the second time in three seasons.Betts gave Boston a scare when he injured his left side making two throws to home plate during a 4-3 win over the New York Mets on Sunday that cut Boston’s magic number to two for a third straight division title.“It kind of flared back up on the second throw. It’ll be fine. I’ll be ready to play Tuesday,” Betts said. “I was just coming out for precautionary (reasons) just to make sure it didn’t get worse. Everything checked out fine and I’ll be ready to go.”Boston has an 11½-game lead over the second-place Yankees and would clinch with one win during a three-game series that opens Tuesday afternoon.“We’ve been looking at the standings and a lot of people have been talking about it for a month-and-a-half,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “Now, it’s right there. If it happens Tuesday, it’s going to be a fun night.”Betts, hitting .337 with 29 homers and 72 RBIs, caught a fly ball from Jeff McNeil in the sixth inning and threw home as Austin Jackson held at third. Wilmer Flores followed with another drive to right, and Betts unsuccessfully threw home as Jackson scored on the sacrifice fly.Betts went down to one knee, and the three-time All-Star was stretching his left side and back as a team athletic trainer and Cora jogged to the outfield. Betts walked off slowly and was replaced. Cora said Betts will get treatment Monday.Andrew Benintendi hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning off Seth Lugo (3-4) after a matchup of Sale and New York’s Jacob deGrom, both Cy Young Award candidates. Brandon Workman (5-0) pitched a scoreless eighth Chris Rusin Jersey , and Steven Wright got three outs for his first big league save.Sale allowed one hit in three scoreless innings, lowering his AL-best ERA to 1.92 and extending his scoreless streak to 32, the longest in the major leagues this season. He made his second start after a pair of trips to the disabled list caused by mild left shoulder inflammation limited him to one appearance nearly six weeks.“I feel a 100 percent and wouldn’t be going out there if I wasn’t,” Sale said.DeGrom gave up three runs and five hits over seven innings with 12 strikeouts and one walk, his major league-leading ERA rising slightly to 1.78. He has gone a major league record 27 straight starts holding opponent to three or fewer runs, according the Elias Sports Bureau.Boston took a 3-0 lead in the third on Betts’ sacrifice fly and Brock Holt’s two-run homer. New York closed to 3-2 in the sixth on Flores’ sacrifice fly and a double by Michael Conforto that bounced off the glove of Tzu-Wei Lin, who replaced Betts.“I knew I had good stuff,” deGrom said. “I made a couple mistakes that inning, just had to turn the page and go out there and try to keep us in the game. We tied it up and we were in the game the whole way.”Rosario hit a tying single in the seventh against Joe Kelly.MARQUEE MATCUPSale and deGrom became the first starting pitchers to face each other with sub-2.00 ERAs and at least 100 innings since the Mets’ Dwight Gooden (1.74) and the St. Louis Cardinals’ John Tudor (1.95) on Sept. 11, 1985 http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-wade-davis-jersey , according Elias.IF THEY VOTEDCora was impressed with deGrom.“I know voting is tough and all in that,” he said. “He should win the Cy Young in the National League.”Sale said: “He’s the best in the league. You saw it today.”AGAINST THE BESTBoston is 4-0 in games started against NL pitchers entering with ERAs among the league’s top four, also winning in starts by Washington’s Max Scherzer, Philadelphia’s Aaron Nola and Atlanta’s Mike Foltynewicz.TRAINER’S ROOMMets: Jay Bruce was the DH for the second straight day. Callaway said it was a good way to get him off his feet during an injury-plagued season in which Bruce has been limited to 82 games.Red Sox: Cora rested both DH/OF J.D. Martinez and SS Xander Bogaerts. He said that INF Eduardo Nunez (right knee soreness) likely will be back in the starting lineup Tuesday.UP NEXTMets: RHP Zack Wheeler (11-7, 3.23 ERA) is set to start Monday’s opener of a three-game series in Philadelphia.
