Paxton has been out for two weeks with a bruised left elbow and is set to rejoin the Mariners' rotation later this week against the White Sox. He threw back-to-back eight-inning gems before going on the DL. If he continues to perform similarly, he'll no doubt help the M's wild card cause. Crasnick: Injury concerns for contending teams

Aaron Judge and Tyler Austin are back in the lineup for the Yankees, while Aaron Hicks and Mark Teixeira return to the bench in Seattle.

The Mariners' Robinson Cano said if he were Alex Rodriguez, he would try to comeback to hit 4 more homers and get to 700.
