Around the Empire: Yankees news - 8/23/15

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports | Ryan Hatch: Luis Severino said he felt like, for the first time, that he belonged after his first big league win on Saturday. He's shown himself capable of working out of jams, gaining confidence from Joe Girardi along the way.

New York Times | Tyler Kepner: Jorge Posada's success as the Yankees' catcher was what brought Diana Munson back to baseball after a break from the painful memories of losing her husband. She said she still walks up and hugs people wearing 15 jerseys at the stadium to thank them for their longstanding loyalty to the former captain.

New York Post | Steve Serby: Joe Girardi did a Q&A with the Post, answering some fairly mundane questions about how miserable life has been the last two Octobers without postseason baseball and what it's like to carry the weight of being the manager of the New York Yankees. | Ryan Hatch: Michael Pineda is set to make his return from the disabled list on Wednesday to pitch against the Astros at Yankee Stadium, pushing Masahiro Tanaka and Luis Severino back to the series against the Braves in Atlanta where they will both have to bat. That also means that the Yankees will be moving to a six-man rotation moving forward.
