Facing Las Vegas in his second start since a demotion from the Diamondbacks, Shelby Miller allowed four runs (three earned) on nine hits and one walk in five innings on Sunday for Reno. Brandon Nimmo had a fifth-inning solo homer against Miller.

The Yankees are 36-3 when leading after six innings this year. They were 66-3 last year, according to ESPN's Stats and Info's Megan O'Donnell. In other words, Aroldis Chapman has put on a show in the 9th, but he hasn't really made the Yankees better.

Teixeira goes yard early

Mark Teixeira drove a 425-foot home run to straight-away center field at Yankee Stadium during the second inning against the Giants on Sunday. The homer was his longest since almost a year ago -- July 30, 2015.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Gleyber Torres is a 19-year-old shortstop in the Cubs' system. He is hitting .275 with 9 homers and 47 RBIs at Single-A. He has a .791 OPS. Colleague Buster Olney reported the Yankees are high on him, making him a possible target in an Aroldis Chapman trade. If the Yankees were to make a deal for Torres, it would demonstrate their commitment to adding overall talent to the organization instead of just looking for certain positions since shortstop is a franchise strength led by Didi Gregorius.
