Masahiro Tanaka (right shin bruise) came to the ballpark feeling better and walking like normal this morning, per Aaron Boone. He was, expectedly, a little sore after taking that 111 mph grounder off his leg yesterday. They'll keep an eye on him the next couple days and will have a better feel for things then.

Dellin Betances made 50 throws today from 90 feet. That's a lot for this stage of rehab. Typically it's been around 25 throws. Said he felt good after today's work, believes he'll stretch out to 110 feet Tuesday. Still hesitant to give a timeline. Says his goal is just to simply feel good at every step. So far, so good.

James Paxton (left knee) had another bullpen session today. He made 20 throws, mixed his pitches, but focused on the inside fastball to righties. He still feels the inflammation, but can tell "we're really close." Thinks he'll need one more bullpen Tuesday to feel good about his knee. Aaron Boone later said that extra side session will happen. Paxton said he felt better after today's bullpen than Friday's. He threw today with a brace on his left leg, and said he liked the feel of it. Could tell it was there, but not as bulky as others he experimented with.
