New York Teams

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Masahiro Tanaka is not only trying to help pitch the Yankees into the playoffs, he is trying to make his opt-out decision difficult. Tanaka will start tonight after the Yankees took him off the DL following his recovery from inflammation in his right shoulder. At the end of the season, he can opt out of the final three years and $68 million of his contract. Right now, it is hard to see him doing that with an 8-10 record and a 4.92 ERA.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Plan is for Odell Beckham to undergo further tests on his ankle in a bit. There remains reason for optimism.
