One of the Giants practice highlights (sorry, I wasn't filming at the time) was second-round pick Sterling Shepard beating first-rounder Eli Apple deep, but bobbling the ball and Apple intercepting the pass. Coach Ben McAdoo lauded Apple's awareness and ball skills in the recovery.

As if the last place Yankees don't have enough problems, starter CC Sabathia is joining Alex Rodriguez on the disabled list. Sabathia has a strained left groin. Sabathia pitched his best game of the year on Wednesday, throwing seven scoreless innings against the Orioles to snap a six-game Yankee losing streak. Sabathia will likely be replaced by Ivan Nova in the rotation. Reliever Phil Coke is being called up from Triple-A.

Yankees announce that they placed LHP CC Sabathia on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to 5/5) with a left groin strain and signed LHP Phil Coke to a Major League contract and selected him to the 25-man roster from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Giants third-round pick Darian Thompson, praised already by defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo for being vocal at safety during Friday's morning walkthrough, said he focused on learning the playbook ahead of time so he could do just that.

Giants fourth-round linebacker BJ Goodson says of Giants defense, "The history here speaks for itself. When you think of great defense, this is one of the cities you think of."

Giants rookie WR Sterling Shepard said it's a coincidence that the Giants assigned him his late father's uniform No. 87. "I was hoping for something in the teens, but I'll just rock with it."
