Around the Empire: Yankees News - 6/7/15

The possibility of a six-starter rotation; Cashman on various team topics; the extraordinarily good back-end duo of Betances & Miller; the not extraordinarily good Esmil Rogers

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports | Lou DiPetro: The Yankees have another long spell of games coming up; 20 straight from mid-June through to the first week of July.  Ivan Nova might come back in time to make a start in that period, which may persuade the Yankees to keep it at a six-man rotation at least for a turn or two. This is only a topic of discussion if everyone stays healthy, so do that, guys.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: Quickfire six as Brian Cashman covers Jacoby Ellsbury's health, skipping Michael Pineda, Alex Rodriguez, an update on Nova, the known cause of Brian McCann's foot injury and not worrying about Masahiro Tanaka. Lot of positive stuff, except maybe Ellsbury who doesn't have a public timeline yet.

Newsday | Jim Baumbach: Esmil Rogers was bad on Friday night. He's been bad for a while, really. He has yet to receive the David Carpenter treatment. | Brandon Kuty: Mark Teixeira says the Dellin Betances & Andrew Miller pairing is as good as any duo he's seen finish games. High praise coming from someone who had a close-up view of David Robertson & Mariano Rivera close out late innings.
