Around the Empire: Yankees News - 5/11/15

Exploring the Yankees relief options; Yankee pitchers work on batting drills to prepare for interleague play; Is Beltran finally heating up?

Elsa/Getty Images | Brendan Kuty: Now that Chris Martin is on the DL, the Yankees have called up Branden Pinder, but there are several relievers who might be better options.

NY Daily News | Bill Madden & Teri Thompson: Former general counsel of the MLB Players Association, Gene Orza, has had some strong words to say about MLB and the union regarding Alex Rodriguez's home run bonuses.

The Wall Street Journal | Joe Lemire: With interleague games approaching, the Yankees have had pitchers start to work on batting drills. If the Yankees stay on rotation, then Chase Whitley and Adam Warren should get the starts against the Nationals. Warren hasn't swung a bat since he was in high school.

New York Post | Fred Kerber: After a rough April, Carlos Beltran is off to a much better start in May. He hit his first home run of the season yesterday, and it could mean his slump is over.
