Around the Empire: Yankees News - 5/23/15

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

CBS Sports | Matt Snyder: When the Yankees honor Bernie Williams on Sunday, the team will wear commemorative patches on their hats.

Forbes | Jesse Lawrence: In reviewing the economic angle of Old Timers' Day, it is shown that this tradition has caused teams from around the country to adopt this practice, and it has led to large spikes in attendance across the league. | Brendan Kuty: The Yankees are interested in Juilo Martinez, and scouts have said he reminded them of a "young Andruw Jones." Martinez will need to be signed under international spending guidelines, but the Yankees can still sign him before July 2nd.

Sports Illustrated | Jay Jaffe: The Yankees are losing Jacoby Ellsbury for at least the next two weeks, and that could be a blow to an offense and team that is struggling. If his stint on the distabled list is short, this won't hurt the team too much, and it will also give a chance for Slade Heathcott to get major league playing time.
