ESPN: In case you missed it, Yankees co-owner Hank Steinbrenner passed away at the age of 63 on Tuesday. While his brother Hal seemingly handles most of the day to day operations, Hank was still an executive and was counseled on major moves made by the team.

New York Post | George A. King III: Former Yankees’ manager and current Phillies boss Joe Girardi shared his memories of Hank Steinbrenner after the news of his passing was announced. Girardi was apparently well liked by the Yankees’ co-owner during their shared time in the Bronx.

New York Post | Dan Martin: In on the field-related matters, Aaron Hicks continues to progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. He has begun swinging both regular and fungo bats, while also throwing and doing physical therapy. However, even with a delayed start to the season, Hicks might not be ready to get right back into the action.
