New York Post | George A. King III: The MLB Draft is finally here! The Yankees will be selecting 28th overall in the first round and have been linked to a right-handed pitcher, and three shortstops, including a pair of high schoolers. Their first selection will be all that more important as the Yankees will not have a second or fifth round selection due to the signing of Gerrit Cole.

ESPN | Jeff Passan: The Major League Baseball Players Association has made a proposal to MLB for a season of 89 games with a full prorated share of salary and expanded playoffs. This proposal would have the season start on July 10 and end on Oct. 11. It also would expand the postseason to 16 teams (eight in each league) for 2020 and 2021. | Mike Rosenstein: If anyone ranked the top-five relievers in Yankees history, we all know who would be at the top of the list, but who would be the next four? Hint: the most recent pitcher on this list last played in 1990.
