The devastating Dellin/Miller duo, Chris Young vs. Chris Young, and more.

ESPN | Jerry Crasnick: An in-depth look on Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances, who Crasnick calls the Yankees' "twin terminators." I love it.

New York Times | Billy Witz: It would have been awesome to see the Yankees' Chris Young face the Royals' Chris Young, but the former kinda sucks against the latter. There are more interesting stories about them than just the same name though.

MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: CC Sabathia will try to win back-to-back games for the first time since April 17th & 24th of last year while trying to end the Yankees' own much more important four-game losing streak.

ESPN | Douglas Tucker: After hiding his elbow injury from the Yankees, Chase Whitley now seems destined for Tommy John surgery. Nice job, hero.

The Trentonian | Nick Peruffo: The Yankees' series of moves to replace Whitley ended up well for resurgent relief prospect Mark Montgomery, who was promoted back to Triple-A Scranton for the first time since his demotion from there last June. He had a 2.08 ERA and 2.67 FIP early on for Double-A Trenton with decent control, so hopefully he can keep it up. Starter Caleb Cotham also earned the bump up.
