Player Notes:

ORIOLES:

Hanser Alberto had a career night in the loss. He had a career-best four hits and finished a triple short of the cycle.

Mark Trumbo could return to the field sooner than expected. He's expected to start some extended spring training games soon, with rehab starts to soon follow after that.

YANKEES:

Gleyber Torres hit his eighth home run of the season against Baltimore. It's still May.

Gary Sanchez completed the comeback for the Yankees, putting them ahead for good with a three-run home run in the ninth. He finished with four RBIs.

Miguel Andujar underwent successful surgery on his labrum on Monday. While he won't play again this season, he should be ready for spring training next season.

For the first time in his career, Troy Tulowitzki could play a position other than shortstop. He recently approached the Yankees brass and told them he'd be open to playing another position when he returns from injury, as Didi Gregorius is expected to return soon.
