New York Post | Joel Sherman: The Yankees are on pace for their greatest winning season in franchise history, but that doesn’t mean their players are on track to break personal best records. That means this team could actually get even better, which is scary to think about. | Randy Miller: Greg Bird is on the verge of returning to the major leagues, but it doesn’t seem to the effecting Neil Walker all that much. He’s starting to hit well and is content to play at whatever position the Yankees need him at, so maybe he’ll stick around after all.

Beyond the Box Score | Matt Provenzano: The 2018 MLB Draft is nearly upon us, but before that it’s time to look five years into the past at the 2013 Draft. Despite the Yankees selecting Aaron Judge that year, it has ultimately proven to be a pretty bad draft class. | Bryan Hoch: Even with Greg Bird due back in a matter of days, it doesn’t look like Tyler Austin will be going anywhere anytime soon. His success against left-handed pitching as made him a good major league option, no matter what.
