Yankees' CC Sabathia begins playing catch
It was the second time he was able to play catch after landing on the disabled list with right knee inflammation. He will wear a knee brace whenever he returns to the mound.

White Sox may rest Carlos Rodon in September
"There might be a spot where you can skip him and get him into that better line of where you would like to see him end up," Ventura said. "I also like to see him getting the repetition of being out there every five days."
Rodon is 6-5 with a 4.15 ERA over 19 starts this season.

Yankees unsure when Mark Teixeira will return
"No testing it, we knew that it made it a little angry," Teixeira said.
Teixeira has not started the last three games because of the injury and manager Joe Girardi was unsure when Teixeira would be able to return.
"I hope it's Boston [on Monday], but I can't really tell you because we all felt he would be playing by now," Girardi said. "Obviously it's not healing as quickly as we thought. It's really a guess for me, so we just wait and see."
Yankees closer Andrew Miller turns lights out on Braves
His victim was Atlanta, which Miller disposed of quickly in the ninth. He fanned Pedro Ciriaco and Nick Markakis along the way to raise his save total to 28.
Miller has not allowed a run over his last six appearances.
Braves SP Matt Wisler denied run support in Saturday loss
Wisler yielded two runs on four hits in six innings with four walks and four strikeouts. That was two runs too many as his team got blanked during his stint in the game.
The lone runs against him scored on a wild pitch in the first and RBI double by Didi Gregorius in the seventh.
Wisler bounced back quite well from a horrible performance last Sunday, when he allowed seven runs in 2 2/3 innings against the Cubs.
Some pitchers you should know better than to sit in Fantasy Baseball, but the playoffs have a way of clouding our judgment. Scott White reminds you who you have to start and why.
Trea Turner might have been one of the best hitters left in the minors, but it's hard to see how he'll translate that to Fantasy value, Chris Towers says.
It's Sale vs. Hernandez but neither is our top pitcher.
At what point does matchup overrule talent? Thursday is a great test.
Would you rather have red-hot Corey Kluber or the consistency of Dallas Keuchel at home?
