Gray, the Yankees’ marquee addition at the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline, received the run support that eluded him in his previous two starts en route to his first win in pinstripes.
Ellsbury smashed a two-run home run and Sanchez continued to heat up with a solo shot off Jacob deGrom, the Mets’ ace and the only one of their starters not to land on the disabled list this season.
Seth Lugo, who was originally scheduled to start opposite Garcia, landed on the disabled list on Tuesday with what the Mets called an impingement in his right shoulder.
A recent bullpen session by C. C. Sabathia, who has been out since Aug. 9 with knee inflammation, was encouraging, and he could return from the disabled list when Cessa’s next turn in the rotation comes up this weekend.
Yankees first baseman Greg Bird , who had right ankle surgery in mid-July, told reporters that he was set to begin his minor league rehabilitation assignment on Wednesday with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
