Notes and notes and notes and notes:
- Big news: SS Jorge Mateo has been suspended two weeks for violating team policy, the Yankees announced. He won’t participate in the Futures Game this weekend. George King says Mateo complained to team executives that he had not yet been promoted to Triple-A. Yep, that’ll do it.
- RHP Brady Lail (oblique) will throw a simulated game Friday, reports Shane Hennigan. He’s been out for a little less than a month now.
- RHP Jonathan Holder has been added to the Double-A Eastern League All-Star Game, the team announced. He’s replacing LHP Dietrich Enns on the roster. Enns has since been bumped up to Triple-A. LHP Jordan Montgomery, SS Tyler Wade, OF Dustin Fowler, and C Kyle Higashioka are the team’s other Double-A All-Stars.
- OF Aaron Judge, who was a bust back in May, was named to Baseball America’s All-Prospect Team for June. He hit nine homers with a 245 OPS+ last month. That’ll play.
