Around the Empire: Yankees news - 8/13/15

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports | Brendan Kuty: Does Jacoby Ellsbury's lack of major production, along with his massive contract, make him a bust already for the New York Yankees?

New York Post | George King III: With Chase Utley clearing waivers, the Yankees seem to have the veteran second baseman on their radar.  Because this team needs more infielders that can't hit.  Right.

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner still thinks the division is the Yankees to lose, and is proud of their performance against the Blue Jays.  He also defends standing pat at the trade deadline, taking a firm stance against giving up any top prospects for rentals.

New York Daily News | Mark Feinsand: Luis Severino had a rough beginning Tuesday night, but his ability to improve as the game went on gives Joe Girardi a lot of hope for him down the stretch this season.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: With Michael Pineda's return in sight, the Yankees have a few options to keep Severino and Sabathia in the rotation, as well as a few creative possibilities to bolster their bullpen.  Just please don't put Severino in the pen - he's too exciting!
