New York Post: In case you missed it, Friday night’s game was rained out, and will be made up as part of a doubleheader today.

CBS Sports | Mike Axisa: With the Yankee rotation going through all the injuries it has so far, it’s not shocking that people consider them a landing spot for some of the marquee pitchers who are or could be available. One of those is Dallas Keuchel, who is still available in the free agent market. Keuchel may not be the type of pitcher the Yankees typically go after, but if the injury troubles keep up, they may have to consider it.

SNY | John Harper: Another one of those pitchers the Yankees may target is Madison Bumgarner. The Giants starter has dealt with some struggles this season, but he’s been better as of late, and may be one for the Yankees to keep an eye on. | Brendan Kuty: James Paxton threw in a simulated game on Friday, and despite being out for a couple weeks now, is still dealing with pain. That doesn’t sound great, but it isn’t worrying Paxton, at least not yet. He’s waiting to see how he feels in the days after taking part in the game. | Pete Caldera: In better injury news, Didi Gregorius could be headed out to play in some rehab games. If everything goes right, the speculation is that he could be back by early to mid-June. That would far exceed most people’s expectations for when the Yankees shortstop would return.
