Hope you are all enjoying the start of your holiday weekend. Here are the highlights from yesterday’s slate of games.
Gleyber Torres has been on a torrid pace for the Yankees of late. In fact, he became the fourth youngest player in MLB history (well, the Modern Era anyways) to homer in four straight games.
While Gleyber brought the bat, Aaron Judge brought the leather (well....at the very least he brought his arm). Judge had two outfield assists in the game, here is the second one which he makes looks way too easy.
In other news, Mike Trout is still really good at baseball. This is Mike going to the extreme opposite field for a second-deck home run.

Brandon Nimmo has been a bright spot for the Mets this season, but mostly due to his ability to get on base at a high clip. Yesterday, he showed off the glove with a catch that Statcast had as only having an 18% chance of being caught.
In case you missed that Brandon Nimmo catch earlier, here it is. Nimmo had just an 18-percent probability of making the grab, based on its Statcast batted-ball metrics. #Mets pic.twitter.com/ndQxqhG4J9— Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) May 26, 2018
Finally, we have Francisco Lindor being awesome at shortstop for the Indians. He makes a great grab and throw to nab the speedy Jose Altuve.
