Since July 1, Astros DH Chris Carter is the only player in the majors with more home runs than Yankees Brett Gardner.
Oh the blessings of good health and playing half your games in the Little League park they call Yankee Stadium. Gardner has belted eight home runs while hitting .278 (27-for-97) since July 1, including Sunday's 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, one walk and one run scored performance as the Yankees defeated the Red Sox on Sunday night baseball.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
