Around the Empire: Yankees News 5/30/15

Masahiro Tanaka returning on Wednesday, double-checking player production, and more.

SB Nation | Grant Brisbee: Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira are two of six stars from 2009 who have since fallen by the wayside but seem to have bounced back in a big way this year. Are they for real?

BP Bronx | Kenny Ducey: A-Rod's approach at the plate has been stellar, and Ducey delves into what's made him so successful with a .277/.372/.561 triple slash early on.

Bombers Beat | Bryan Hoch: Masahiro Tanaka will return to the Yankees on Wednesday, as he takes on the Mariners in Seattle. He'll slide into Chris Capuano's spot and after another lackluster performance by the lefty, one can only hope that Adam Warren doesn't lose his job in the rotation in favor of Capuano.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Speaking of injured players' returns, Jennings offered his own thoughts on who should stay and who should go when Tanaka, Chris Martin, and Jacoby Ellsbury come back.

Baseball America: Double-A Trenton third baseman Eric Jagielo and Low-A Charleston shortstop Jorge Mateo both make appearances on BA's weekly prospect hot sheet. What did the BA staff have to say about them?

FanGraphs | Chris King: More prospects ahoy! King saw High-A Tampa infielders Tyler Wade and Abiatal Avelino together, and its worth reading more about a couple prospects not quite as a popular as the main crop.
