The Cubs and Yankees were rained out yesterday in New York. The teams will play a split doubleheader today at Yankee Stadium. Jason Hammel gets the ball against Masahiro Tanaka for a 12:05 first pitch. The nightcap features Travis Wood against Michael Pineda at 6:05.
The Cubs have hired former outfielder Darnell McDonald as a baseball operations assistant. The 35-year-old will work with minor league players on and off the field. He will also participate in the Instructional League in Arizona this fall as an extra coach.
