ESPN: Due to expected inclement weather, the Yankees’ game against the Phillies on Tuesday night has been postponed to Wednesday, when the two teams will play a double header in Philadelphia. It will be the first time the Yankees play a home game away from Yankee Stadium since April of 1998.

Newsday | Erik Boland: The Yankees’ offense has been flat-out ridiculous lately, and that continued on Monday night with home runs by DJ LeMahieu, Gio Urshela and Brett Gardner. But the real catalyst has been Aaron Judge, who is swatting dingers like it’s 2017 and leading what looks like the most dangerous offense in the league.

New York Post | Andrew Marchand: John Sterling has missed the past few games due to a blood infection, but the great news is that the voice of the Yankees should be back in the booth on Wednesday. It will be great to have Sterling back for his legendary home run calls, considering he’s missed out on a bunch the past few nights.

The Ringer | Ben Lindbergh: If you’ve felt that a large number of pitchers have gone down early in this short season, you’re not wrong. Lindbergh details the rash of injuries that have befallen hurlers across the league, as the rapid ramp-up that was summer camp appears to have put pitchers in a position where they weren’t quite ready to all out.
