Gary Sánchez's (groin) rehab continues, and today, he's back in the cage.

Aaron Boone says Aaron Judge played catch today and could be in a position to take dry swings this afternoon depending upon how he's feeling after earlier work. Also, Gary Sánchez will head to Tampa on Sunday as he continues his recovery, and will have a rehab start soon thereafter. Sánchez likely will play in a lot of rehab games before he gets back to the big-league roster, Boone said. He didn't want to put a new timeline on when we might see Judge.

Aaron Boone on watching other teams in the division at this point in the season: "I pay attention to the sport. I know what's going on. But I'm not thinking about what other teams are ahead, behind. That's just frankly a waste of time. It's, we've got to get after the Blue Jays. That is my focus. That is our teams' focus."

Aaron Boone and Giancarlo Stanton weren't happy Stanton's eighth-inning hit off the yellow stripe on the wall in right was ruled a double. Originally, umpires called it a homer before video replay confirmed it hadn't left the ballpark. They had Stanton go to second base.

J.A. Happ was asked if he's been motivated by being involved in a playoff race since the trade: "It's motivating to pitch in Yankee Stadium; to be on this team, to be in a pennant race."

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

J.A. Happ continues to impress in pinstripes, collecting his third win in as many starts since being traded to New York. His seven-inning one-hitter helped push the Yankees to Tuesday night's 4-1 win over the Rays. Miguel Andujar keeps crushing the ball, picking up two doubles, including one that led to a key insurance run. Aroldis Chapman: 31 saves.

Sabathia says DL decision for knee was easy call

After trying to push through pain in his arthritic right knee a year ago, Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia said Tuesday he didn't want to make the same mistake this year and that's why he went on the 10-day disabled list Monday.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Gary Sánchez says he hasn't really felt pain from his groin injury since the week after he re-aggravated it on July 23. He still hasn't run with 100 percent effort on the field yet, nor has he hit on a field yet. While he says he's feeling good right now, he contends the real tests will come when he's actually in a game situations (i.e., having to beat out a ground ball).

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Of his DL stint, CC Sabathia says he told Aaron Boone he could've pushed through his next start, but he could tell he probably would've been down for the one that came after that. Feels this is good timing. The inflammation in his right knee really flared up in the past two starts, Sabathia said. Today, it feels better and the swelling is down. He'll likely play catch tomorrow.
