Around the Empire: Yankees News - 5/18/15

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports | Ryan Hatch: X-Rays on Mark Teixeira's toe came back negative, but the Yankees' first baseman admits that it isn't feeling good right now. Joe Girardi said Alex Rodriguez could play first if Teixeira needs to miss time while in an NL ballpark.

New York Daily News | Mark Feinsand: Masahiro Tanaka will throw a final bullpen session in Washington today before heading out on a rehab assignment. The right-hander would need at least two starts in the minors before he is ready to come off the DL.

New York Post | George King III: Chase Headley's defensive woes have him leading the team in errors with eight. Fielding hasn't been the issue, though. Six of his eight errors have come on throwing miscues.

NBC News | Dan Mangan: The Yankees' salaries account for 2.5% of the total salary for the Bronx. That propelled the Bronx ahead of all but Manhattan in terms of wages.
