Around the Empire: Yankees news - 8/6/15

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports | Brendan Kuty: The short, strange trip of Garrett Jones, who - after having been DFA'd last Friday - is now back with the team after Dustin Ackley hit the disabled list.

LoHud Yankees News | Chad Jennings: Yankees catcher Brian McCann has a hurt MCL, but he remains the back up catcher, at least for now, in case the Yankees need him. Hopefully he'll be back in a couple days, as any long DL stint for McCann would seriously hurt the Yankees down the stretch.

New York Times | Tyler Kepner: After failing to trade for a starter and following Michael Pineda's injury, Luis Severino is carrying the weight of the Yankees pitching staff upon his young shoulders.

New York Daily News | Anthony McCarron: Taking a look back at five other highly touted Yankee relievers, including our old friend Phil Hughes and fan favorite Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez.  Ah, that leg kick brings back memories.

Newsday | Erik Bacharach: Masahiro Tanaka admits that, while he has won a lot of his recent starts, he still hasn't been pitching nearly as well as he expects himself to.
