Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees now have more time to find a compromise on their disagreement over his bonus, Masahiro Tanaka might get an extra day of rest, and taking a deep dive on recent call-up Jose De Paula.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: The deadline for Alex Rodriguez to file a grievance against the Yankees for failing to pay him his $6 million bonus has been put on hold, meaning the Yankees and Rodriguez will be able to continue negotiating.  From the looks of it, a donation to various charities in Rodriguez's name just might be the outcome here, which has long seemed like a logical, and fair, compromise.

ESPN New York | Andrew Marchand: The Yankees would be wise to give Masahiro Tanaka an extra day of rest, which means his next start could come Sunday against Detroit.  In his place, Nathan Eovaldi could go on short rest after throwing so few pitches on Tuesday, or perhaps Bryan Mitchell could get a shot.

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: The Yankees will need to re-think their rotation, especially when Ivan Nova returns, if they want to stop their extremely streaky and inconsistent season.

ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: Could Nathan Eovaldi's awful outing open the door for Adam Warren to sneak back into the rotation? | Maria Guardado: What you need to know about the Yankees most recent call-up, reliever Jose De Paula.
