Around the Empire

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Joe Girardi believes Carlos Beltran should be elected into the Hall of Fame when he eventually calls it a career. After hitting his 400th career home run on Sunday, Beltran's numbers may be hard to ignore.

New York Post | Dan Martin: Chase Headley has returned to the land of the living, and with his hot hitting he's been helping the Yankees out. If his early season struggles prove to be simply similar to 2015, then his contract may not be the dead weight it seemed not too long ago.

Newsday | Anthony Rieber: The Yankees have shuffled their rotation ahead of tonight's game against the Diamondbacks. Chad Green will start tonight and make his MLB debut with Michael Pineda and Nathan Eovaldi following him. Barring a setback, CC Sabathia is slated to start on Friday.

Chicago Tribune | Colleen KaneAfter spending six seasons with the Cubs and being a three-time All-Star, Starlin Castro is finally giving Yankees fans that familiar feeling of having a second baseman to root for. Castro has taken the challenge of playing in New York and owned it. He also credits the veterans on the team for being around to help guide younger players like him.

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: After going 7-3 on this recent home stand the Yankees must keep their hot streak alive on the road. Beating and taking advantage of the underwhelming Diamondbacks and A's would be a good place to start as they try and get themselves over .500.
