Newsday | Steven Marcus: Just in time to face the Yankees, the Toronto Blue Jays are calling up Marcus Stroman.  Stroman, if you don't remember, was expected to be one of the team's best pitchers before an ACL tear threw a wrench into his season.  However, his stunning return makes the Blue Jays even more formidable as one of the biggest series of the year looms.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: Gary Sanchez has been activated and placed back on the Triple-A roster.  Don't be too surprised if he ends up in the Bronx before September is out. | Extra Mustard: The Yankees took some time off today to play a NYC edition of Family Feud, trying to name local attractions, as well as items players bring with them on the road.

Fangraphs | Chris Mitchell: Take a look at some videos of new Yankee James Kaprelian in action!  Kaprelian pitched for the Staten Island Yankees yesterday and showed quite a bit of promise - even dialing his heater up to 96.  There's some great stuff here, so for everyone interested in Yankee prospects, this is a must read. | Brendan Kuty: Greg Bird is experiencing some growing pains, but not necessarily at the plate.  Instead, he's getting used to playing first base in the majors, and he's making some mistakes.  While they aren't unexpected, it's too bad they come in the heat of a pennant race.
