LoHud | Chad Jennings: Even if Luis Severino is something new for some Yankee fans, teammate Greg Bird says that Severino looks the same way that he did back in the minors. | Ryan Hatch: CC Sabathia was recently snapped in a paparazzi photo of him on his balcony smoking a cigarette. Sabathia offered his comments, saying how it was spooky that the press got the picture.

ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: Didi Gregorius has been red hot as of late, quite the turnaround from his beginning of the season, and the fans have turned around as well. | Bryan Hoch: After fouling a ball off his leg nearly two weeks ago, Mark Teixeira is still dealing with soreness and still can't run. Additional tests will be had to confirm there is not a micro-fracture. | Ryan Hatch: With both the Yankees and himself in a hot-and-cold spell, Alex Rodriguez gives his thoughts on the team, comparing baseball to the stock market.
