Around the Empire: Yankees News - 5/6/15

Ellsbury and Gardner make quite a duo; Teixeira has been dealing with a lat issue; Pirela should be activated from the disabled list today; Gregorius has been playing better lately

The Wall Street Journal | Daniel Barbarisi: Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner are a dynamic duo both at the top of the lineup and out in the field. | Ryan Hatch: One of the reasons that Mark Teixeira didn't play in Monday's game is because he's been working through a lat injury. He's received treatment for the past few days, and Joe Girardi insists that it isn't serious.

ESPN New York | Andrew Marchand: The Yankees will activate Jose Pirela today, and presumably send Gregorio Petit down. When asked how much playing time he would get, Girardi defended Stephen Drew, saying he thinks he's hit better than his average shows, and that he'll take things on a day-by-day basis.

It's About The Money | Brad Vietrogoski: Slowly, but surely, Didi Gregorius is starting to look better at the plate and defensively.
