Three batters after Bryce Harper was called on a strikes on a pitch above the belt, Gabe Kapler storms out of the dugout to have some strong words with home plate umpire Mark Carlson and then Bryce Harper rushes out and Kapler has to push him away form Carlson. Harper has apparently been ejected.

Bryce Harper makes a sliding/half-diving catch to take away a potential base hit from Juan Lagares in the second inning. Not that difficult of a play, but the slide/dive was kind of a big deal: Last year, Harper dove just one time and slid four times. He and Nicholas Castellanos were the only regular outfielders not to dive more than once.

Steven Matz retires the first batter of the game and thus won't become the 13th starter since 1908 to fail to get an out in back-to-back startsh. The last was Scott McGregor of the Orioles in 1982, who faced five batters in the first start and three in the second.

Jacob deGrom threw a bullpen session on Monday at Citi Field without any issues. He'll throw another one on Wednesday and if all goes well he'll come off the injured list and start on Friday against the Brewers.

The Yankees formally released Gio Gonzalez from his minor-league contract, and did not add him to the active roster today. With him having already opted out over the weekend, this formality means he's back in free agency.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Yankees announce that they have released Gio Gonzalez from his minor league contract. He will not be added to the Yankees' 25-man roster, thus making him a free agent.
