Around the Empire: Yankees news - 9/18/15

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

New York Post | George King III: The Yankees are giving shortstop prospect Jorge Mateo reps at second base in the Instructional League. They haven't given up on him as a shortstop, but they want to see how the promising prospect handles a position with a clearer path to the majors.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: There has been a lot of clamoring for playing Rob Refsnyder with the disappointing play of Stephen Drew and Brendan Ryan, but Jennings breaks down some of the arguments that don't hold up to reality.

ESPN | Gordon Edes: While the Yankees are taking on the Mets this weekend, their biggest ally also happens to be their biggest rival. The Boston Red Sox have a chance to cool off the Blue Jays to help the Yankees in the AL East race.

New York Times | Jay Schreiber: The Mets-Yankees series has lost of a bit of shine in recent seasons, but both teams being in the middle of playoff races gives the latest edition of the Subway Series some added tension and excitement.
