  • Luis Severino didn’t last long Sunday as he struggled with his command although Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he thought his pitcher was on the wrong side of some close calls

Jeter played 20 seasons in the Bronx, beginning with his rookie of the year season in 1996. Jeter was the last player to have his name called by legendary public address announcer Bob Sheppard, whose recorded voice was used to introduced Jeter even after Sheppard's death.

In a tribute that's been building since he stepped away from the dirt he roamed at shortstop, Derek Jeter was set to have his No. 2 jersey retired at packed Yankee Stadium on Sunday night. Here is what is being said about Jeter's jersey retirement on social media, followed by exclusive club in Yankees history that he is joining. Expect that Saturday's projected starters, Luis Severino and Mike Fiers, will pitch during one of the games on Sunday.

The Yankees have lost three straight, but remain a half game behind first-place Baltimore in the AL East.

Besides the Yankees, there are connections to Jeter from the Astros. After slugging a two-run homer in the first game of the series, Correa had two hits and an RBI on Friday and is batting.340 with 11 RBIs in 14 career games against NY. "We've got a couple guys that played with him".

The best-selling regular-season Major League Baseball game in StubHub's history was Jeter's final home game in 2014.

"Damn it, Hal. Why do you keep hiring the best and the brightest to work for us", says Levine?

Sunny, warm weather through the end of the week
Scattered showers and an isolated thunderstorm or two are possible. "Around 0.5" to 1.5" of rain is expected during that time. For your latest weather updates throughout the weekend , see the attached Twitter feed for the NWS station in Buffalo.

MIAMI - Tyler Flowers homered and drove in four runs as Atlanta stopped a six-game losing streak. You're not going to hit two and three home runs every game.

OUR PREDICTION: The Astros have won six of their last eight games in NY and have been profitable for bettors when Fiers starts.

J.T. Realmuto, Justin Bour and Derek Dietrich hit home runs for the Marlins, who have lost four straight.

Astros: Joe Musgrove (2-3) starts Monday's series opener at Miami. Tanaka is 5-0 with a 2.78 ERA in his last five starts after allowing three runs and 10 hits over seven innings on Monday.

The 31-year-old gave up five runs and a pair of homers in five innings in his only start at Yankee Stadium and Jacoby Ellsbury has two doubles in three at-bats versus Fiers.
