Giants open minicamp today. Expectation is that Odell Beckham Jr. will be there although not practicing as he continues to rehab, per sources. Ereck Flowers ... less optimism.

Jets daily draft nugget: No team has traded up into the top five more than the Jets — four times in the common-draft era (since 1967). None of the three previous picks (Mark Sanchez, Dewayne Robertson and Lam Jones) made a single Pro Bowl. The Jets also are part of another trend. Since 2013, only nine of the 12 first-round quarterbacks were taken with picks acquired via trade. The exceptions: Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota and Blake Bortles.

After pitching the final two innings Monday night, Yankees reliever David Hale was designated for assignment. He's being replaced by now former Nationals righty A.J. Cole, who was traded to New York on Monday in exchange for cash considerations. Cole is being added to the 25-man roster. Hale struck out three and allowed three hits in his solid relief outing.

The Bronx Bombers lived up to their nickname Monday night, as every player in the starting lineup reached base. Only Brett Gardner (two walks) failed to get a hit. Aaron Judge launched a deep double. Giancarlo Stanton went 4-for-4 (his first four-hit game as a Yankee) with a long homer. Didi Gregorius hit a grand slam. Tyler Austin homered. So did Miguel Andújar. And 21-year-old 2B Gleyber Torres, playing in just his second major-league game, got his first career hit. That leadoff single kicked off a six-run eighth that helped the Yankees cruise to a 14-1 win over the Twins.

At 10:20 p.m. ET on April 23, 2018, young Yankees 2B Gleyber Torres had his first major-league hit. A single up the middle at the Stadium, he lined a 1-2 slider off Twins reliever Tyler Kinley. As he ran up the first-base line, Torres gave a little fist pump.

With his fifth-inning homer tonight, Giancarlo Stanton now has his first multi-hit game since he had three hits in the Yankees' win at Boston 12 days ago. This is his fifth multi-hit game of the season.

Throwing out the first pitch tonight in the Bronx: David Wells (on David Wells bobble head day)

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan was more tight lipped than usual today in his pre-draft session with reporters. He wouldn't confirm the obvious (they will draft a quarterback) and he wouldn't give any details on how they evaluate the quarterbacks. He wouldn't even comment on the importance of hand size when evaluating quarterbacks, saying it could tip their ... well, hand. Chances are, it'll be a Baker Mayfield-Josh Rosen decision. Some key people in the organization prefer Mayfield, but Rosen has some support as well.

Clint Frazier finally feels like he's "through it" in terms of the concussion, Aaron Boone says. The Yankees OF played today in an extended spring training game. He played five innings, had a hit and a stolen base and although he played in the outfield, he got no action there. He'll play another extended spring game tomorrow, and will be with Single-A Tampa in a game Thursday.

Yankees 3B Brandon Drury (blurred vision) saw his specialist this morning, and they had a few firmer answers for him. Doctors believe the vision problem was the result of a tendon in his neck that's been blocked. They'll treat it using stimuli and some acupuncture-like treatments. Drury will be playing in a rehab game Wednesday in Scranton. As for getting Drury back as Miguel Andújar remains hot at third, Aaron Boone said, "I like having the problem" of figuring out how to get both playing time.

If 23-year-old Miguel Andújar has an extra-base hit in his next game, he'll be entering some rarified Yankees air. He's had an extra-base hit now in six straight games. According to Elias, the only Yankees with longer such streaks before their 24th birthdays were Mickey Mantle (seven games in May 1955) and Joe DiMaggio (seven in June 1937). Andújar will turn 24 next March.
