Around the Empire: Yankees news - 8/17/15

The key to Beltran's resurgence, Tanaka's thoughts following his complete game, and more.

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports | Brendan Kuty: Since May, Carlos Beltran has been great for the Yankees. What is the key to his recent success?

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Following his stellar complete game in Toronto on Saturday, Masahiro Tanaka offers his thoughts on his outing.

Newsday | Steven Marcus: 15 years after facing each other in the World Series, both the Yankees and Mets sit in first place in their divisions. Could another Subway Series be coming in late October?

New York Post | Kevin Kernan: With Alex Rodriguez's recent struggles, Beltran has really stepped up to pick up the offense. Along with Mark Teixeira, the two switch hitters are going to be key players over the rest of the season.

Newsday | Ari Kramer: In a recent interview, Pete Rose says that he thinks the Yankees could be dangerous, but that they won't win the division. He does, however, think the cross-town rivals will hold their division lead.
