Class A Tampa Yankees manager Luis Sojo enters play on Wednesday with 414 victories for the Florida State League club. He is four wins shy of tying Luis Dorante (418) for the most in FSL history.
Yankees captain Derek Jeter was given a routine day off on Wednesday. Manager Joe Girardi said he expects Jeter to play Thursday.
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Saturday's game against the White Sox.
On this date in 1936, the Yankees bashed six home runs off St. Louis Browns starter Tommy Thomas. The six homers off one pitcher set a club record and tied a modern Major League record that still stands today, most recently equaled by the Blue Jays against the Rays' James Shields in 2010.
