Around the Empire: Yankees News 4/15/15

An update on Brett Gardner, Dellin and his mechanics, a look back at 1966 Joe DiMaggio, and more Yankees news.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Talking with Dellin Betances about his spring training shakiness and mechanical problems early on, Jennings gets the sense that at laest Dellin has more confidence to recover than he did in his days as a wild prospect.

ESPN New York | Andrew Marchand: Joe Girardi is hoping to get Brett Gardner back in the everyday by Friday in Tampa Bay after the left fielder has missed most of the Orioles series due to a wrist injury sustained on a hit by pitch Monday.

New York Times | Billy Witz: The Yankees' long relief roster spot has been a rotating door since the wild 19-inning game in Boston, and Witz took time to chat with the Yankees' coaches and the recently-recalled Joel De La Cruz about manning such unstable roles. On the bright side, it sounds like Esmil Rogers is a cool dude, as he was nice enough to take him out to lunch and buy him a suit to wear on the road, even though it's unclear whether De La Cruz will still be there or not.

BP Bronx | Bryan Kohrs: Considering overreactions and underreactions to the Yankees, Red Sox, and Blue Jays' first week of play, it's always important to keep hasty thoughts in perspective.

Esquire | Gay Talese: Yes, Esquire is an unusual site to link to for Yankees news, but this throwback post from 1966 is an absolutely fascinating look at the then-life of retired Yankee legend Joe DiMaggio. It had been over a decade since his career ended and just a couple years since the love of his life, Marilyn Monroe, passed away.
