Andrew Mearns | Pinstripe Alley: The good news from Zack Britton’s MRI results was that he didn’t have UCL damage and won’t need Tommy John. The bad news is that he still needs to have surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow. Britton won’t be available to return for at least a month, and the Yankees don’t have a definite timetable on his return.

Daniel Russell | DRays Bay: The Rays have narrowed their new ballpark plans down to four proposals. Daniel Russell has the rundown on the possible future homes of the team because who doesn’t love a good ballpark rendering?

Rob Mains | Baseball Prospectus $: Rob Mains continues his research into the Times Through the Order penalty. We knew that pitchers fare worse the third time through the order, but this effect was understated because we were including pitchers who weren’t good enough to make it through a second time.
