NBC SportsJose Trevino is dealing with a Grade 2 strain of his left quad.

Trevino has received a PRP injection and is expected to miss extended time. Carlos Narvaez was called up when Trevino landed on the IL, though Austin Wells should handle the bulk of the starts for now. Now that Trevino is facing an extended absence, it's unclear if the Yankees would consider giving Ben Rice time behind the plate. If not, they could look to the trade market this month.

NBC SportsGrayson Rodriguez gave up six runs in five innings in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

He struck out seven while issuing one walk. The problem for Rodriguez was the long ball, as he gave up a three-run homer in the first to Austin Wells, and two more solo shots to Aaron Judge and Juan Soto in the fifth. It's a disappointing end to what has been a pretty strong first half for the 24-year-old in his first full year of action with a 3.88 ERA and 112/31 K/BB over his 17 starts and 99 2/3 innings.

NBC SportsAustin Wells hit a three-run homer in a win for the Yankees over the Orioles on Saturday.

Wells walloped a three-run blast off of Grayson Rodriguez -- one of three homers Rodriguez allowed in his loss -- to extend New York's lead to 4-0. The 25-year-old has done a nice job behind the plate for New York, and there have been some decent offensive moments with a slash of .220/.311/.385 showing that they haven't come on a consistent basis.

NBC SportsGleyber Torres went 3-for-4 with an RBI against the Orioles on Saturday.

Torres singled twice and doubled. The 27-year-old infielder got the scoring started with an RBI single in the first, and he came around to score on Austin Wells' three-run homer later in the inning. Even with the three knocks, Torres has disappointed in 2024 with a slash of just .230/.307/.347. It's reasonable to expect him to be a more consistent contributor after the All-Star break.
