Tanaka is still feeling hamstring pain; Beltran really turned things around after a horrendous April.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: Masahiro Tanaka threw his first bullpen session yesterday, after suffering a hamstring strain while running the bases against the Mets. The bad news is that he's still feeling it in his leg, and hasn't run full speed or taken any fielding drills yet. | Brendan Kuty: For most of the season, Mark Teixeira batted in the cleanup spot in the lineup, right behind Alex Rodriguez. Is it possible that A-Rod's performance has declined since Tex has been injured?

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: Dellin Betances has struggled with his control on the mound over the past few weeks, which is likely due to fatigue and the fact that he is a huge guy.

ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: He had a horrendous start to the season, but Carlos Beltran has been spectacular since May.
