SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Colin Kaepernick says he has received death threats through social media and other avenues since he began to protest during the national anthem last month.Kaepernick said Tuesday he has not alerted San Francisco 49ers team security about the threats and understood that could happen once he began his protest over racial oppression and police brutality in the United States.To me, if something like that were going to happen, youve proved my point, he said. It would be loud and clear for everyone why it happened. That would move this movement forward at a greater speed than what it is even now. Granted, I dont want that to happen. But thats the realization of what could happen.Kaepernicks protest during the anthem became public last month when he sat during the anthem before a preseason game against Green Bay and later explained his reasoning. He has since kneeled before the Niners past three games. The kneeling is meant to show more respect for veterans.Kaepernick has been joined by several other NFL players, U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe and scores of high school and college players who have picked up the cause.It has not received universal support, however, and he said he was the target of racial slurs and other insults before last Sundays game at Carolina.Theres a lot of racism in this country disguised as patriotism and people want to take everything back to the flag but thats not what were talking about, he said. Were talking about racial discrimination, inequalities and injustices that happen across the nation.Kaepernick spoke to one of those cases Tuesday, the shooting of an unarmed black man in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last week. Police video shows 40-year-old Terence Crutcher walking away from the officers and toward his SUV last Friday with his hands in the air. He then approaches the drivers side of his vehicle, where an officer shocks him with a stun gun and another fatally shoots him.Officers had been called to the scene to respond to a report of a stalled vehicle.The officer who shot Crutcher, Betty Shelby, was placed on paid leave.His car was broken down, he was looking for help and he got murdered, Kaepernick said. Thats a perfect example of what this is about. I think it will be very telling what happens with the officers that killed him because everybodys eyes will be on this.Kaepernick also gave more details about his plans to donate $1 million to organizations supporting his cause of racial equality. He said he has people currently vetting potential charities to determine the proper ones to donate to and will launch a website detailing his donations and how the money is spent.He plans to give away $100,000 a month for the next 10 months.I want to make sure that not only am I transparent about what Im doing but these organizations are transparent about where the money is going as well, he said.Game notes LB Ray-Ray Armstrong was placed on injured reserve with a pectoral injury. ...

SEATTLE -- With the New York Yankees facing an uphill climb to the playoffs, CC Sabathia picked a good time to return to form.Jacoby Ellsbury hit a two-run homer and Sabathia pitched seven innings to win for the third time in two months, leading the New York Yankees over the Seattle Mariners 5-1 on Tuesday night.Sabathia (8-10) was 2-6 with a 6.78 ERA in his previous 11 starts. He gave up a run in the third inning on a triple by Leonys Martin and single by Ketel Marte, but allowed just one single and his lone walk over the next four innings.I think its really big, because hes the one guy on in our rotation that has been through this a lot and theres always been a lot put on his shoulders and he could really help, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.Tommy Layne pitched a perfect eighth and Dellin Betances worked around a two-out single to finish the four-hitter.Seattle, which leads the majors with 62 home runs against left-handers, could muster little against Sabathia.The story tonight was our offense got just shut down, Mariners manager Scott Servais said. Thats the first time that has happened in a long time. Got to give credit to Sabathia. He threw the ball really well. Textbook, pitching 101, back and forth, changing speeds, on the edges, pitching inside. He was very effective against us tonight, obviously.After his recent struggles, Sabathia was pleased with his outing.It feels good. Were trying to win every game and to be able to be a part of that, feels good, he said. We were working the ball in and out really good, commanding both sides of the plate and I think that helped us out with two strikes.Taijuan Walker (4-8), recalled earlier in the day from Triple-A Tacoma, allowed four runs -- three earned -- and six hits in 5 2/3 innings, with three walks and five strikeouts.Ellsbury staked New York to a 3-1 lead in the fifth with his sixth home run, a two-run shot to right-center that followed a leadoff double by Ronald Torreyes.The Yankees made it 4-1 in the sixth when Mark Teixeira doubled, took third on Brian McCanns groundout and scored on Aaron Judges sacrifice fly to center.New York added an unearned run in the ninth when Ellsbury reached on a two-base error by left fielder Guillermo Heredia and scored on Didi Gregorrius ground-rule double.ddddddddddddSABATHIA AT HOME AT SAFECOSabathia improved to 9-1 with a 2.09 ERA in 13 career starts at Safeco Field, including 6-0 with a 1.07 ERA in his last seven starts. Overall, he is 13-6 against the Mariners with a 2.64 ERA, his lowest against any AL opponent.TRAINING ROOM:Yankees: RHP Anthony Swarzak, who took the loss after giving up Mike Zuninos go-ahead three-run homer in a 7-5 loss Monday, was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right rotator cuff inflammation. RHP Ben Heller, acquired from Cleveland in the trade for Andrew Miller on July 31, was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Heller also was with the Yankees from Aug. 11-13 but did not pitch.Mariners: RHP Tony Zych was recalled from a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma and activated off the 60-day disable list Tuesday. Zych was 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in 10 early season relief appearances before going on the 15-day DL (right rotator cuff tendinitis) in early May and was transferred to the 60-day DL on June 24. IF/OF Stefen Romero, who was called up Friday, was sent back to Tacoma.MORE MARINERS MOVES: To make room for Walker, the Mariners optioned RHP Cody Martin to Tacoma. Martin was called up Aug. 16, his third stint with Seattle this season. He made two spot starts without a decision, including Mondays 7-5 victory over the Yankees, when he allowed five runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings -- with all the runs coming on four home runs.UP NEXT:Yankees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka (10-4, 3.24 ERA) has won three consecutive starts for the first time since July 9-23 of 2015. He is 4-0 in four career starts against the Mariners, including 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA at Safeco Field. Tanaka will be facing former Japanese teammate Hisashi Iwakuma, with whom he played from 2007-11 with Rakuten. The two also met in April, with Tanaka getting the victory and Iwakuma the loss in a 4-3 Yankees win.Mariners: In a season of injuries, trades and roster shuffling, RHP Iwakuma (14-8, 3.78) has been the most consistent member of the rotation, leading in starts (25), victories and strikeouts. He is 13-4 in his last 17 starts. ' ' '
