NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees got one of their best players back from the disabled list just as the Toronto Blue Jays put one of theirs on the DL. CC Sabathia returned with one of his best outings of the season, pitching six innings of shutout ball in the Yankees' 6-1 win Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. While the Blue Jays absorbed their second straight loss to the AL East leaders, they were heartened to know their latest injury in a season full of them was not as bad as they thought. Jose Bautista was placed on the 15-day disabled list with what the club called inflammation in his left wrist, but the team said there was no structural damage found.

Yankees' backup left fielders keep coming through

Brett Gardner has appeared in just nine games for the Yankees this season, and none since injuring his right (non-throwing) elbow attempting a diving catch on April 17.

Andruw Jones- Hitter of Homeruns

Since 2009 Andruw Jones has hit 61 homeruns.  Not very impressive.  However, consider he is no longer a full-time player and that 30% of his hits have been of the round-trip variety, and suddenly that's not too shabby. Over the past 4 seasons, Jones has played for the Rangers, White Sox, and Yankees (all hitter's parks).  He's collected 203 hits, while clubbing 61...
