At the end of the latter plate appearance, the left-handed hitter delivered a booming blow with a grand slam that glanced off the right-field foul pole. The home run gave the Yankees a 5-0 lead they wouldn’t relinquish in a 9-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

It’s one start, Gray said to reporters. It’s something I told you guys [Tuesday]: I felt good coming into it, I feel even better coming out of it. It’s one start to build on, and hopefully it can continue down this path.

On the heels of two starts in which he failed to get out of the third inning, Gray went six innings in the win over Baltimore, allowing just three hits and striking out eight.

A first-round pick in 2014 from Tennessee, the left-handed starting pitcher has climbed the ranks in the Yankees organization and become a possible piece of the puzzle as New York reportedly tries to land Machado from the O’s.

On Wednesday alone, there were conflicting reports as to whether Sheffield, a Triple-A starter, was part of a trade package the Yankees offered the Orioles in exchange for their superstar shortstop.

Potential trade partners will get an up-close look at Sheffield during Sunday’s Futures Game at Nationals Park.
