Carlos Beltran (hamstring) is considered day-to-day after Tuesday's MRI came back clean.

The 39-year-old outfielder was forced to leave Tuesday's game after his first at-bat due to tightness in his right hamstring, the Yankees appeared to have dodged a bullet here though. He may sit out on Wednesday as a precautionary measure, but expect the hot-hitting Beltran back in the lineup by the weekend.

CC Sabathia was charged with six runs over seven innings of work in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Sabathia started the eighth inning having allowed just two runs. He exited the frame after yielding three hits and hitting a batter and all four came around to score. Sabathia has now been charged with 11 runs over his last two starts, although we might be inclined to put an asterisk next to this one since he was good for seven frames. He'll get the Padres on Sunday.

Yankees prospect right-hander James Kaprielian was diagnosed with a flexor tendon strain in his right elbow.

That certainly isn't encouraging news for one of the top prospects in the Yankees' system. He'll now visit Dr. Neal ElAttrache who will determine the next course of action. Kaprielian was the 16th overall selection by the Yankees in the 2015 draft.

Carlos Beltran was removed from Tuesday's game against the Rangers with a tight right hamstring.

He'll head for a precautionary MRI to determine the extent of the damage. The Yankees can't afford to have his bat out of the lineup long, as the veteran slugger is hitting .297/.336/.570 with 19 homers and 53 RBI in a resurgent season.

Carlos Beltran was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Rangers in the second inning with an apparent leg injury.

Beltran singled in his first at-bat and then pulled up lame instead of going to second base. Team trainers and Joe Girardi came out immediately to look at Beltran who was quickly yanked. Look for the club to provide an update on the status of the hot-hitting outfielder shortly.

Yankees recall RHP Conor Mullee from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The 28-year-old hurler has only appeared in one game with the Yankees this season, walking three batters in his lone inning of work. At Triple-A, he sported a ridiculous 0.52 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 45/10 K/BB ratio across 34 1/3 innings. He'll function in middle relief.

Yankees optioned RHP Kirby Yates to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The 29-year-old hurler has had a rough go of it out of the Yankees bullpen this season, compiling a 5.72 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 35/13 K/BB ratio over 28 1/3 innings. He'll try to right the ship in the minor leagues before returning later in the season.
Jun 28 - 4:49 PM

Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Tuesday.

It's simply a routine day of rest for Gardner as the Yankees square off against a difficult southpaw. Aaron Hicks will start in his place in left field and bat eighth for the Yankees.
Jun 28 - 4:06 PM

Yankees RHP prospect Domingo Acevedo hurled seven shutout innings Monday in a win for High-A Tampa.

He struck out six and didn't allow a walk. The seven-inning effort was Acevedo's longest start since April 27 when he logged eight innings in a win over Lakewood. Monday was only Acevedo's third start since his promotion earlier this month. So far he's 4-2 this year with 62 strikeouts and a 2.12 ERA over 59 1/3 innings between Tampa and Low-A Charleston.

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Rangers.

He'll get a breather against tough opposing southpaw Cole Hamels. Austin Romine will start in his place behind the dish and bat ninth for the Bombers on Tuesday.
Jun 28 - 4:04 PM

Ivan Nova was charged with four runs over five innings of work in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

He yielded six hits and walked three, settling for a no-decision in the rain-lengthened game. Nova has given up at least four runs in six out of his last seven starts and might not be long for the rotation. He's slated to face the Padres this weekend.
Jun 28 - 2:52 AM

Mark Teixeira went 3-for-5 with a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

Teixeira's dinger off of Luke Jackson in the seventh inning looked like it would prove to be the winning run, but the Rangers came back with four runs in the top of the ninth in the rain-delayed marathon. The Yankees' first baseman has gone deep in two of three games since returning from the disabled list.
Jun 28 - 2:46 AM

Yankees sent 1B Ike Davis outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Davis passed through waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend. He has expressed a willingness to stick around as depth in the minors, but it's unclear if he's made an official decision.
Jun 27 - 4:03 PM

Alex Rodriguez is not in the Yankees' lineup Monday against the Rangers.

Manager Joe Girardi hinted Sunday that he might only start Rodriguez against lefties going forward, so he'll take a seat with right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez throwing for the Rangers on Monday. Carlos Beltran will grab another start at DH. Left-hander Cole Hamels is scheduled to start Tuesday's game, so Rodriguez should be back in the lineup tomorrow.

Three Cubs scouts attended the Yankees' series against Minnesota this past weekend.

They were scouting the dominant bullpen trio of Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances. The Cubs have been linked to Chapman and Miller for a while so their presence in New York this weekend shouldn't come as much of a surprise. The Yankees have incentive to trade both, especially with Chapman headed for free agency this winter. With that said, the Yankees probably won't pull the trigger unless they're completely out of the AL East race. Right now they trail first-place Baltimore by 7.5 games and are 2.5 games behind Toronto for the final Wild Card spot.
