Update: With Masahiro Tanaka moving closer to a return, the Yankees are considering going with a six-man rotation at some point in September and could do it for the entire 2015 season

Yunel Escobar left Monday's game with hamstring tightness.
Dan Uggla replaced Escobar in this contest and Escobar should be considered day-to-day moving forward. Escobar was 1-for-2 before exiting the game and Dan Uggla would be in a position to receive extra playing time if Escobar were to miss any extended period of time. Monitor this situation moving forward, seeing as Escobar has become a valuable fantast asset in 2015. Analysis: Colby Conway
Mo Williams has agreed to a two-year, $4.3 million deal with the Cavaliers.
Williams averaged 14.2 points and 6.2 assists in 29.1 minutes for the Timberwolves and Hornets last season. Williams will be able to get some open threes alongside LeBron James, but will be expected to score off the bench. The Cavaliers are attempting to stack this roster to bring a title to Cleveland next season, under the tutelage of King James and a little bit of coach David Blatt. Analysis: Colby Conway
