Baseball America's Top 100, a six-man rotation, Yoan Moncada's second workout, and more.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Baseball America: The prospect rankers at BA released their Top 100 Prospects, led by Cubs slugger Kris Bryant. They placed top Yankees prospects Luis Severino and Aaron Judge 35th and 53rd, respectively. Greg Bird did not make it, but he is still #GregBird and glorious. On the official MLB Network countdown of BA's Top 100, they also said that whenever he signs, Yoan Moncada will rank 10th overall. Do that, Yankees.

FOX Sports | C.J. Nitkowski: Since the Yankees are considering turning to a six-man rotation for the early part of the season, should teams be considering that more often? | Bryan Hoch: Yoan Moncada reportedly had a secret second workout with the Yankees. Are the Yankees closer to signing him than we think?

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Previewing Masahiro Tanaka's 2015 campaign and what the future might hold.

NJ Advance Media | Brandon Kuty: The Yankees will have four catchers from their 40-man roster in spring training. What will they expect from each of them?

Hardball Talk | Craig Calcaterra: The hypothetical idea of swapping the 2009 World Series title for Alex Rodriguez never re-signing to the Yankees is ludicrous. I would never give away that thrill.
