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."

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.

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).

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.

Five observations from Tuesday's Jets-Redskins practice: 1.) Sam Darnold was sharp. Consider: He threw only six incompletions in 19 attempts, and that includes three drops. 2.) RB Thomas Rawls, battling for a roster spot, had one of his better practices. He got off to a slow start in camp, then got banged up. Now he's healthy and contributing as a runner and receiver. Rawls, who sat out the opener, will get a lot of work on Thursday. 3.) S Marcus Maye (ankle) continued to work his way back slowly, getting limited reps. If he plays in the game, it won't be much. 4.) Lot of rotating at linebacker, but it looks like the third-down rushers this week will be Brandon Copeland and rookie Frankie Luvu. 5.) WR Chad Hansen, having a quiet camp, flashed with a nice catch in team drills.
