Giants-Mariners game postponed due to Seattle air quality

Published

on

Tuesday night’s scheduled game between the San Francisco Giants and Seattle Mariners has been postponed due to air quality issues in Seattle.

The game is expected to be played in San Francisco at a later date.

Per Airnow.Gov, the air quality in Seattle as of 4 p.m. ET Tuesday was 241, which is deemed “very unhealthy.” The air quality in San Francisco was 68, which is deemed moderate.

The question going forward is how the West Coast fires will affect MLB down the stretch, particularly with the American League division series and championship series scheduled to be held in California. While no plan is set in stone, the Phoenix area has emerged as the primary backup option if MLB needs to move any of its postseason games on account of air-quality problems, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The decision on Tuesday night’s game comes a night after the Oakland Athletics and Mariners played a doubleheader under a haze of smoke.

Giancarlo Stanton activated by Yankees after missing 32 games with strained calf

Published

on

NEW YORK — Giancarlo Stanton was activated by the New York Yankees on Tuesday after the designated hitter missed 32 games because of a strained left hamstring.

New York made the move before a series opener against Toronto. The Yankees also activated third baseman Gio Urshela, who has recovered from a bone spur in his right elbow, and right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga, who was sidelined with a medical condition the team did not specify.

Stanton hit cleanup against Toronto, ending Clint Frazier’s 16 straight games as New York’s No. 4 hitter, and Urshela hit fifth.

Right fielder Aaron Judge, limited to one game since Aug. 11 because of a strained right calf, is expected to be activated later this week.

Stanton hit .293 with three homers and seven RBIs in 14 games before he got hurt.
