Judge hits 55th home run, Yanks beat Twins 5-4 in 12 innings
NEW YORK — (AP) — The Yankees threw a team from the 90s at the Minnesota Twins — as in uniform numbers usually limited to spring training. Aaron Judge started the comeback from a three-run deficit with his major league-leading 55th home run and Oswaldo Cabrera capped a two-run 12th inning with a game-ending single. Judge set the Yankees record for right-handed hitters by surpassing the 54 homers hit by Alex Rodriguez in 2007. Varland, a 24-year-old right-hander, gave up three hits and one walk in 5 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts. Gleyber Torres tied it at 3 for the injury-depleted Yankees with a two-run homer in the sixth off Griffin Jax.wftv.com

Two weeks from opening day, MLB teams work to set rosters
Clubs are also still scrambling to fill their rosters through free agency and trades, processes that were frozen during the lockout. The 29-year-old Grichuk hit .241 with 22 homers and 81 RBIs in 149 games last season. He was dealt two days after hitting a grand slam in a spring training game against the Yankees. The cash will offset a little more than half the $18.7 million Grichuk is owed over the final two seasons of his $52 million, five-year contract. The 29-year-old had a 3.79 ERA over his first six MLB seasons with the Milwaukee Brewers and San Diego Padres.wftv.com
Blue Jays trade Grichuk and $9.7M to Rockies for Tapia
The cash will offset a little more than half the $18.7 million Grichuk is owed over the final two seasons of his $52 million, five-year contract. Tapia agreed this week to a $3.95 million, one-year contract and is eligible for free agency after the 2023 season. The Blue Jays signed Grichuk to a long-term deal in 2019 but he wasn't assured of a starting job. A first-round pick of the Los Angeles Angels in 2009, Grichuk got traded to the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013. He was dealt again when the Cards sent him to the Blue Jays in January 2018.wftv.com
