Around the Empire: Yankees News - 4/28/15

Yankees bullpen has been as good as expected; Teixeira named AL Player of the Week; Miller has seven saves but still not "official" closer.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

New York Post | Fred Kerber: Going into the regular season, the Yankees' bullpen was projected to be one of the best in baseball, and so far it has lived up to those expectations, touting a 1.86 ERA before last night's game.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: Mark Teixeira is a notoriously slow starter, but he's been tremendous since the season started. He was even named AL Player of the Week. | Ryan Hatch: Despite the fact that he has earned eight saves, Andrew Miller still hasn't been named the Yankees' closer. Joe Girardi wants to wait a bit longer before making it official.

The Wall Street Journal | Jason Gay: Things are going to get weird between the Yankees and Alex Rodriguez after his next home run. That pairs nicely with this list of ways to celebrate A-Rod's 660th.
