New York Post | Brian Costello: Monday saw the news come out that Miguel Andujar had a small tear in his labrum. While this may lead to season-ending surgery, at least one person is optimistic that it will not: Miguel Andujar. He’s going to do a couple weeks of physical therapy before the surgery decision is made, so we’ll see what happens.

SNY: With his suspension over, the focus on CC Sabathia can shift to when he returns from injury. We now have a little more clarification on that. Sabathia will throw a rehab start on Sunday, and if all goes well, his next start will be in the majors. Hopefully he’ll be up soon, so we can get the party started on his final season.

USA Today | Tom Schad: The Andujar news on Monday came fairly close to the start of that night’s game, so Tyler Wade’s call up was a bit last minute. In order to get to New York from Scranton, where he was getting ready to open the Triple-A season, Wade used the most 2019 method possible: Uber. As a current Scranton area resident, that is quite the hike to make on short notice. Thankfully, the Yankees covered the cost of it. Hopefully, the driver made good use of their unexpected New York trip.

New York Post | Mark W. Sanchez: Some news out of the minors on Tuesday was that prospect Domingo Acevedo will be pitching out of the bullpen in Double-A Trenton now. It’s not completely unexpected news, as despite Acevedo’s stuff being good, he has had a hard time staying healthy in his career.

Sporting News | Joe Rivera: The Sporting News talked to Clint Frazier in a wide-ranging conversation that went over baseball, his bat speed, and tacos. A little something for everyone.
