David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports | Danny Wild: Aaron Judge and Greg Bird were among the names listed on the Yankees' Organizational All-Star team this year, and director of amateur scouting Damon Oppenheimer offered his thoughts on this up-and-coming talent.

ESPN New York | Andrew Marchand: The seven-year, $217 million deal that the Red Sox gave David Price was a move straight out of the 2000s Yankees' textbook. So how are the Yankees affected by the decision to not even pursue him?

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Price signing with Boston was the big news from yesterday, but some old Yankees farmhands found homes too, including Melky Mesa and Ronnier Mustelier.

Yahoo Sports | Chris Cwik: Among the former Yankees to find a home was Joba Chamberlain, who accepted a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training from the Indians. They also apologized to him on Twitter for the infamous "midges game" in 2007, and the Yankees' Twitter account rolled its figurative eyes.

USA Today | Bob Nightengale: The Yankees were smacked with a $26 million luxury tax bill for their payroll, which was the second-highest luxury tax paid in the game after the Dodgers' $43.7 million penalty. The other two teams charged were the Red Sox and the Giants.
