Are the Yankees now sellers?

Flipping Aroldis Chapman for a top prospect is a smart move by the Yankees. And it might just be the only move they want, or need, to make. Waving the white flag?

Alex Rodriguez said he is encouraged by a talk he had with the Yankees' sabermatricians, who told A-Rod his advance analytics are encouraging. When manager Joe Girardi was asked how A-Rod gets another chance when he isn't playing against lefties, righties and doesn't play defense, the manager said, "His time is going to come. He is going to get more chances." Maybe, but it doesn't sound like many. A-Rod is hitting .206 with nine homers and 29 RBIs. He turns 41 on Wednesday.

The second act of the benching of Alex Rodriguez has commenced -- and there is not much end in sight. A-Rod is not starting against lefty Dallas Keuchel tonight, because manager Joe Girardi plans on starting Carlos Beltran at DH the next three nights. The Yankees are next in Tampa, which has turf that Girardi may not want to play Beltran in the outfield much on. The Rays may have two lefties starting, which could be a plus for A-Rod. After that, the Yankees are at the Mets, where there is no DH.

They play 15 of their next 20 games at Citi Field, with 10 home games against the Rockies, Padres and Diamondbacks. Those three teams are a combined 33 games under .500. "This is when good teams take off," said Mets manager Terry Collins. We need to take off."

Former Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski, who reflected back on last year's deadline, when he unloaded Yoenis Cespedes, David Price and Joakim Soria: "In my heart, we weren't good enough to win it at that time. And that's what I ended up expressing." Dombrowski acquired key assets for Detroit-- namely, Michael Fulmer, Daniel Norris, Matt about and JaCoby Jones -- even though he knew his days with the organization were numbered. Asked if he knew he wasn't going to return as GM, Dombrowski said: "Pretty much."

In discussing reliever Koji Uehara's strained right pectoral muscle, Dave Dombrowski referenced Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez, who dealt with the unusual injury for a pitcher in 2014. Sanchez missed seven weeks that season.
