Now for some news + notes…

– Surprise! Alex Rodriguez has been suspended. However, as you can tell, he will appeal and likely play out the remainder of the season, should he stay healthy. The best us Yankees fans can do is just hope he plays well and isn’t too much of a circus after tonight.

– Word just broke that Derek Jeter is going back on the disabled list with a Grade 1 calf strain. This will be his third DL stint of 2013, as yesterday Jeter himself called this season “a nightmare”. Ironically, activating A-Rod will be the corresponding roster move.

– To a somewhat random degree, Brent Lillibridge has been designated for assignment, and David Adams has been called up.

– And finally, the Chicago Cubs claimed Thomas Neal off waivers from the Yankees today. He had two stints with the team this year for a grand total of four games, picking up 2 hits in 13 plate appearances. Happy trails.
