NY Daily News | Justin Tasch: The man who caught A-Rod's home run ball has a weird history of catching baseballs at stadiums, and he has no intention of giving the ball back.

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: There's been bad blood between the Yankees and Alex Rodriguez, but the Steinbrenner family congratulated him after his 3,000th hit. Does that mean they're on better terms now?

LoHud Yankees Blog | Josh Thomson: More postgame stuff about Rodriguez, but also an update on Mason Williams whose shoulder apparently popped out of place diving back to first base last night. This is an issue he's dealt with in both shoulders previously, but he's hopeful he'll be able to return after resting a couple games.

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Just a few days ago, the Yankees indicated that Jacoby Ellsbury wasn't where they wanted him to be to start a rehab assignment or stay behind in Tampa, but prior to yesterday's game he took full batting practice in cleats and Joe Girardi said that his running had improved.

MLB.com | Adam Berry & Paul Casella: Some facts and trivia regarding A-Rod's 3,000th hit.

NJ.com | Ryan Hatch: Ivan Nova made another rehab start in Scranton last night and he got lit up, giving up five runs in five innings.
