3B David Adams had a promising start to his career when the Yankees recalled him May 15 but he quickly tailed off and saw his average drop to the low 200s and eventually under .200. He had been playing mostly every day until last Wednesday's acquisition of Luis Cruz, and since he wasn't going to play every day, the Yankees did not see much purpose for keeping him in the majors.

SS Derek Jeter appeared in his third rehab game for Triple-A Scranton Wilkes Barre. He made his second appearance in the field and went 0-for-2 with a walk and scored a run.LHP CC Sabathia will go for his 10th victory Tuesday night against the Royals, and if he gets it, that will mark his 13th straight season in double digits. It also will mark the third time he has done so before the All-Star break. Sabathia is 18-10 with a 3.26 ERA in 35 career starts against the Royals and among active major leaguers, only Mark Buehrle (22) has more victories against them. Sabathia is 6-2 with a 2.95 ERA against the Royals since Sept. 28, 2007 and his last start against them was May 4, 2012 in Kansas City, when he allowed two runs and seven hits in eight innings of a 6-2 victory. Overall, he has won five of his last seven starts since May 31 and Wednesday in Minnesota, he threw 121 pitches while allowing two runs and seven hits over seven innings.
