Around the Empire: Yankees news - 4/17/16

More concerns about A-Rod; Tyler Olson sent down, Branden Pinder called up; a look at the deal that preceded the construction the new Yankee Stadium

New York Daily News | John Harper: Alex Rodriguez is not off to the best of starts this month and it is a topic of much discussion. It's possible that this is all just in his head and A-Rod is just pressing a bit too hard right now.

Newsday | David Lennon: While A-Rod's struggles continue, it might be wise for Joe Girardi to have someone else hit third in the lineup. The currently hot hitting Carlos Beltran might be the best candidate at this point.

New York Daily News | Anthony McCarron: All aboard the shuttle to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The Yankees are in need of a fresh bullpen arm, so Tyler Olson will be sent back to the Railriders after only being here for a day. Taking his place will be Branden Pinder. Surely, this will be the only time this happens this year.

The New York Times | Michael Powell: Sometimes it's pretty sad to read about all the wheeling and dealing that went into the new Yankee Stadium.
