Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees Photo by Adam Hunger/Getty Images | Randy Miller: Having entered spring training as a backup plan, Domingo German has emerged as the ace of a starting rotation riddled with injury. After being seen as competition with Jonathan Loaisiga to fill in for CC Sabathia when the season began, German has turned in one of the best starts in the American League so far this season.

New York Post | Dan Martin: Aaron Hicks has returned to the Yankees after missing the first quarter of the season, but Hicks has felt fine for quite awhile. Boone talks about how the team wanted to give Hicks time to build his strength back up and be ready to contribute for the rest of the season, but his back has been feeling good and has been “past the injury for quite a while now.” | Randy Miller: Chance Adams may be with the Yankees for a temporary stay while James Paxton recovers from an injured knee, but the former highly-touted prospect believes he has returned to the form that made him so well regarded in the first place. Given how Adams has pitched over his last few starts in Triple-A, he seems to have his confidence back.

Also, in cased you missed the news, the Yankees are slated to play a single-admission doubleheader with the Orioles today starting at 3:05 EST after the first two games of the series were rained out. The second rainout will be made up on August 12th as part of a split doubleheader.
