ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: It is way too early to worry about Alex Rodriguez. Although he joked that it was never too early for the media to start panicking, the Yankees' DH has only had 25 at-bats so far, and one of his three hits was a home run.

MLB.com | Nick Suss: Prior to yesterday's game, the Yankees optioned Luis Cessa to Triple-A and called up lefty Tyler Olson. The Mariners have a lot of left-handed batters on the team, so the Yankees wanted to add another lefty to the bullpen besides Chasen Shreve and Andrew Miller.

New York Post | George A. King III: Brian McCann took a foul tip off of his toe on Tuesday and was back behind the plate on Thursday, saying that his toe doesn't feel great and that adrenaline helped him get through the game. Brett Gardner also hurt himself during the series against the Blue Jays when he fell into the stands to catch a ball. He has some welts after hitting the back of his head on the concrete, but said he is fine.
