New York Post | George A. King III: In a season full of never-ending injury misery, it’s perhaps unsurprising that Aaron Hicks is dealing with some lingering shoulder issues. However, Hicks reports that he’s feeling much better after receiving a cortisone shot. Perhaps that’s just a short-term solution, and we’ll have to see if Hicks can hold up as the season rolls along.
CBS Sports | R.J. Anderson: The clear highlight of yesterday’s Old-Timers’ Day festivities was Mariano Rivera’s performance. Fresh off his unanimous induction into the Hall of Fame, Rivera made his first appearance at Old-Timers’ Day, and induced a double play from Paul O’Neill and rocking an inside-the-park home run. Seeing Rivera back on the field in pinstripes truly was a delight.
NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Cameron Maybin’s calf injury profiles as one of the more unfortunate injuries the Yankees have suffered lately (and there have been quite a few), as Maybin had made for a heck of a story. The Yankees put a six-week timeframe on Maybin’s recovery, but Maybin himself indicated that timeframe felt a little cautious to him, and he hopes to be back sooner. Hopefully Maybin returns quickly, though we all just saw in the NBA Finals what can happen when a calf strain isn’t given enough time to heal.
NJ.com | Randy Miller: After a scalding stretch of eight straight wins, Miller asked the Yankees themselves for their takes on what the key to their success was. Their answers are mostly platitudes, but it’s still good to hear what the actual players are feeling when they get on a streak.
