New York Post | George King: Although the Yankees are gradually getting healthy, the injury luck has not carried over to the pitching staff. Dellin Betances suffered a setback on Friday and will be sent back to New York for reexamining. He reportedly felt fine after throwing on Wednesday, but did not feel right this weekend. While the Yankees’ bullpen has been quite good this year, the team sure could use Betances to complete their relief corps.

Bergen Record | Pete Caldera: Giancarlo Stanton could be on his way back to New York in a little over a week. He will go a minor-league rehab assignment early next week, but will take the full week to get up to speed. He has suffered biceps, shoulder and calf injuries this year, so the Yankees will let Stanton take as much time as he needs to get fully healthy.

SNY: Troy Tulowitzki got to live out a dream by playing shortstop for the New York Yankees this year, but his time with the Bombers may be ending soon. He has recovered from his calf injury, but has been at home mulling his future based on the Yankees’ infield situation and his own health. If this is it for Tulowitzki’s great MLB career, it was cool that he got to have a cup of coffee in New York.

New York Times | James Wagner: CC Sabathia is almost as synonymous with Cleveland as he is with New York. The big left-hander started his career in Cleveland and won a Cy Young there, and returned to the city this weekend for what is likely his last trip there as a player. This piece took an in-depth look at the effect Cleveland has had on CC’s life, from his on-field memories to a stop at his favorite sandwich shop.
