Around the Empire: Yankees news - 8/21/15

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Deadspin | Samer Kalaf: Derek Jeter and Brian Cashman's relationship was strained in the last few years of the shortstop's tenure in New York because the Yankee General Manager told the future Hall of Famer he'd prefer Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop. | Brendan Kuty: CC Sabathia asked old teammate Andy Pettitte to teach him how to throw a cutter when the two got together in Houston earlier this season. Although Sabathia hasn't quite been the CC of old, he has been improved as of late, and the cutter may be a big reason why.

New York Post | Brian Lewis: Luis Severino has just started making an impact on the big league club, but his help with the Yankees' annual Hope Week got him a special thanks from Jennifer Steinbrenner.

New York Post | Phil Mushnick: Families who bought tickets to see the Yankees and Mets play on September 20th are frustrated with the fact that ESPN has chosen to move the 1:10 start time to after 8 pm for Sunday Night Baseball, making it a time no longer suitable for children to enjoy a day at the park.
