Yankees Scout Cueto, Headley is Injured, Miller and Ellbury Back and so much more

Here is a quick little "catch me up" type post for you to get caught up on all the latest Yankees news before tonight's game, assuming Mother Nature allows it.

  • The 2015 Home Run Derby Field is set and Mark Teixeira is not participating thankfully.

  • The New York Yankees have been following around the Cincinnati Reds and have been scouting almost every Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake start. The Orioles were also in attendance to watch Cueto's start last night so this could get interesting fast. 

  • New York made their first signing of the new International signing period and his name is Luis Medina. Medina signed for $280K and a scholarship to go to school worth $120K. The Dominican born RHP is the first the Yankees signed with their new spending restrictions after blowing past their allocated budget in the last signing period.

  • Jacoby Ellsbury and Andrew Miller are both activated for tonight's game with the Oakland Athletics. To no one's surprise the Yankees optioned RHP Nick Rumbelow to accommodate Miller and OF Ramon Flores for Ellsbury. 

  • Brett Gardner is fourth among the five finalists in the All-Star Game Final Vote. See below for the official standings and which hashtag you can use to vote for Gardner starting Friday.
