YANKEES: CC Sabathia was placed on the disabled list with a hamstring injury and Ronald Herrea (who gave up a go-ahead home run in his pitching debut) was sent back down to Triple-A.  Luis Cessa was called up and will replace Sabathia in the rotation for now. Domingo German was also recalled.

BILLS: Sal Capaccio of WGR reports that the Buffalo Bills wrapped up a “hyper-competitive” three days of minicamp.  Sal has several notes and observations based on what he saw.

BILLS: Always a good read, WKBW’s Joe Buscaglia offers his own 7 observations from Bills minicamp.  Doesn’t sound good for second year quarterback Cardale Jones’ prospects of making the team if things stay as they stand now.

WWE: Here’s some news on the imminent return of Braun Strowman and it sounds like he may jump right back into where he left off—finishing a feud with Roman Reigns.

MOVIES: 47 Meters Down, a movie I literally never heard of being writing this opens in theaters today.  It stars Mandy Moore and Matthew Modine and is centered around two sisters being trapped in a shark cage on the ocean floor.  Anyway, Variety gives it a decent review, which based on the flick’s description surprises me.

TELEVISION: TV Guide provides some scoops for all the new fall shows.
