New York Post | George A. King III: In case you missed it, Giancarlo Santon was placed back on the injured list yesterday, and is expected to be out until most likely August.

New York Post | Howie Kussoy: In happier “in case you missed it” news, DJ LeMahieu and Gary Sanchez were the two Yankees voted in as All-Star starters for this season’s edition of the midsummer classic. Several other Yankees came close to getting voted in, with Aaron Judge coming up just short. You would imagine a couple of those, plus some pitchers, will end up on the list of reserves for the game, but those have yet to be announced.

New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: For those of us not from the UK or traveling to London, this two game series over there is a bit of a novelty. However, there are baseball and Yankees fans in the UK, and for them this is special. This is a nice reminder that while it’s not quite as global as other sports, there are baseball fans pretty much everywhere.

ESPN | Joon Lee and Coley Harvey: Here we have a players’ perspective from members of the Yankees and Red Sox who will be taking part in this weekend’s games. There are quotes on everything from the weird dimensions (385 to center), Harry Potter, and Brett Gardner’s kids wanting to see a castle.

New York Times | Victor Mather: A couple days ago, the Yankees set the major league record for most consecutive games with a home run. While that is impressive, the home run in general is far from unique, and there’s a chance that record could get broken again in the next couple seasons if they don’t keep it going.
