Brendan Kuty | I know, most of these news roundups are about yet another injury to the Yankees, but not this time! The Yanks could see three of their battered Bombers return this weekend, including Miguel Andujar, DJ LeMahieu and Clint Frazier. With the 18-10 Twins up next, that would be a welcomed return.

James Wagner | NY Times: The Yankees head home after a successful west coast trip, but after a pair of losses to the Diamondbacks, the Bombers are now 0-5 this year against teams above .500. With series against the Twins, Mariners and Rays coming up, the Yanks will have to change that course if they are to stay afloat with their band of replacements.

Randy Miller | Remember those security guards in Arizona that came into the Yankees’ locker room asking CC Sabathia and Gleyber Torres for an autograph? Well, they won’t be doing that anymore, as they’ve been banned from working Diamondbacks games.

Kristie Ackert | Daily News: Gio Urshela has been a savior at the hot corner for the Yanks, providing a steady glove and a surprisingly productive bat in the lineup. With Andujar almost off the IL, the Yanks will have to make a decision on how to use Urshela, though it’s not necessarily a bad problem to have.
