The Yankees haven't had any bad news in a few minutes, so here you go. 2015 first round pick James Kaprielian has a flexor tendon strain in his right elbow. He has had re-occurring discomfort and will next go see Dr. Neal ElAttrache. There was thought before the injuries that Kaprielian might be able to shoot through the minors to the majors in one year.

More bad news for the Yankees -- and this could be really bad. Carlos Beltran just left the game after singling to left field. Beltran appeared to be favoring his legs,as he went around first base. After being checked out by a trainer and manager Joe Girardi, Beltran was removed from the game. Beltran has been by far the Yankees best hitter this season.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he never considered pinch-hitting Alex Rodriguez in Aaron Hicks' place in the ninth, despite the fact that the tying run was at the plate early Tuesday morning. With a righty on the mound, the amount of hours Rodriguez sat and the short porch in right, Girardi said turning to A-Rod was not a thought. When asked when he could pinch-hit A-Rod in AL parks, Girardi didn't have much of answer instead basically saying wait-and-see. A-Rod is in tonight's lineup, starting against lefty Cole Hamels. A-Rod is 1-for-6 with a homer.

Jeff Hornacek has a 'big supporter' in Carmelo Anthony. Anthony explains why here: "He came to see me work out a couple of times, which was surprising.... That was good feeling just to see the energy and vibe, it was a lot different," Anthony said Monday at the unveiling of the Team USA roster in Harlem. "For him to take that step and want to have that conversation with me, wanting to start off the relationship on the right foot, I accepted that. How we're going to play, we haven't discussed basketball... but I'm a big supporter.''
