Yankees update

The Orioles and Yankees met two weeks ago, splitting four games in New York. Since then, the Yankees have signed OF/DH Darryl Strawberry, who was brought up from Triple-A before the All-Star break for one game, in which he went 0-for-4. Three Yankees made the All-Star team: 3B Wade Boggs is among the AL's batting leaders at .331; Pettitte leads the AL with 13 wins; and closer John Wetteland has 20 saves in his past 20 appearances, breaking Lee Smith's mark of 19 set with the Orioles in 1993. Many people thought Bernie Williams' first-half production was worthy of All-Star recognition, too. Williams leads the Yankees with 16 home runs and is second in hitting (.326) and RBIs (56). SS Derek Jeter has played more games than any other rookie in the league (82) and is holding up well at the plate with a .277 average and 38 RBIs.
