LoHud | Chad Jennings: With Jacoby Ellsbury on the verge of a return, Jennings looks at how the Yankees' lineup has fared with and without the team's regular center fielder.

New York Post | Justin Terranova: CC Sabathia's ineffectiveness puts the Yankees in a tough position as the trade deadline draws near. Sabathia doesn't have the same clout that Derek Jeter did, but the team has been reluctant to admit that the former ace doesn't belong in the rotation anymore.

FOX Sports | Ken Rosenthal: Alex Rodriguez, the Yankees, and the players' union have been discussing an agreement that would send Rodriguez's home run bonus money to the charitable organizations of his and Hal Steinbrenner's choosing.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: The Yankees traded Jimmy Paredes and Mark Melancon to the Astros for Lance Berkman five years ago this month. The two former farmhands have gone on to find success with the Orioles and Pirates, respectively, which could leave some feeling a little disappointed that they were traded away for minimal return.
