The home run came off of Orioles starter Chris Tillman, who entered tonight allowing just four home runs on the season. Judge’s Yankee teammates Didi Gregorius and Starlin Castro each connected on bombs as well, running up Tillman’s season total to seven home runs on the year.

Clemens wanted $25,000 to sign with the Mets. They offered $10,000. They probably should have given him the extra $15,000. They had another chance to get Clemens; they had three first-round picks in the 1983 draft (fourth overall, 20th and 27th), but they chose Eddie Williams with the fourth overall pick and then the Red Sox took Clemens with the 19th overall pick. So close, but so very far away.

Only two players the Mariners picked in their first-ever draft made big impacts in the major leagues. Dave Henderson, who was the club’s first pick (No. 26 in the opening round) had a solid 14-year career for six clubs, primarily the Mariners and A’s. Phillips was the other guy, compiling a career WAR of 50.8 over his 18 seasons in the bigs. Problem was, he didn’t sign with Seattle, and was drafted in the first round of the 1978 draft by the Expos. We should point out that Henderson and Phillips eventually made an impact together; both were starters for the 1989 A’s, a club that won the World Series.

In 2005, his fourth season in the big leagues, Lee finished fourth in the AL Cy Young voting. Getting to that point was quite the trip. See, in 1997 Lee was drafted out of high school in Arkansas by the Marlins, but he didn’t sign. Then in 1998, he was drafted by the Orioles in the 20th round out of a Mississippi community college, but didn’t sign.
