ESPN New York | Danny Knobler: The Yankees believe that Masahiro Tanaka will either throw again this year or have offseason Tommy John surgery. | Brendan Kuty: Carlos Beltran will have offseason elbow surgery and it won't affect his 2015 season.

SB Nation | David Roth: The discovery of Ichiro Suzuki's penchants for trash-talking in Spanish is another example of the weird stories surrounding him.

New York Times | Tyler Kepner: Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long feels he has done everything he can to help improve the lineup and it still hasn't been enough.

Pinstriped Prospects | Jed Weisberger: While many consider the Yankees farm system to be "depleted," they actually have a very good crop of prospects.

ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: Brian Cashman is not going to be blamed for this disappointing season even if they don't make the playoffs again. | Brendan Kuty: Ivan Nova has started throwing again since having Tommy John surgery a few months ago.
