MLB.com | Russell Dorsey: Ninja Cash hits again. Unexpectedly, the Yankees would have acquired batter Edwin Encarnacion from the Mariners in exchange for potential prospect Juan Then. Although this decision is quite confusing given that Stanton and Judge are expected to return next week, it will certainly mean that there will be no more Kendrys Morales. It's a good indisputable thing. In any case, Judge, Stanton, Voit, Sanchez and Encarnacion have a sacred five out of five. Stay tuned to PSA for trade coverage as more details appear.
New York Post | George A. King III: The June Dawn of the Yankees was largely attributed to pitching, but King points out that there are also other factors. Defensive errors exacerbated the Yankees 'poor pitching performance, and Brett Gardner and Aaron Hicks' under-average shots shortened the range. Hoping that the Yankees will be able to clean up their work and start hitting like their skin, because the rotation will need all the help they can.
New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: Lovers of long dongs rejoice; the return of our Lord Giancarlo Stanton is near. Aaron Boone has expressed confidence that the paralyzed player should be able to return soon, but has also denied being brought back anyway. The cautious approach of the Yankees is reassuring given Stanton's multiple setbacks this year. Return to us all repaired, Giancarlo, and do not forget to bring the crazy ones.
NJ.com | Brandon Kuty: As Stanton and the Judge approach their return, the date of Luis Severino is still unclear. The Yankees hope that Severino will soon be able to start throwing a mound, but even if he reaches this milestone, he still has some way to go before he can take action. The wait for Severino is likely to last until early August at the earliest. We can only hope that Cashman will find a way to make the rotation work so far.
