Around the Empire: Yankees news - 1/6/16

Castro thanks Chicago; new minor league staff; shopping Andrew Miller; Yankees not a fit for Lee

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

The Players' Tribune | Starlin Castro: The new Yankees second baseman reflects on his time in Chicago, and looks ahead to his career in New York. One of his mentors was in fact Alfonso Soriano, who helped Castro adjust to a big league lifestyle. | Ryan Hatch: The Yankees have named Bobby Mitchell as their Double-A manager, Justin Tordi as the Double-A defensive coach, and Al Pedrique will manage the Triple-A Scranton RailRiders.

Latin Post | Paolo David: The Yankees could still be shopping Andrew Miller in exchange for a young starter, but he would obviously he a huge help to the club in the event he stays, especially with the uncertainty over whether Aroldis Chapman plays a full season due to his possible suspension.

YES Network | AJ Herrmann: Cliff Lee is looking for the "perfect fit" as he looks to come back from injury as a free agent, and the Yankees are probably not that perfect fit. Even though they've been connected in the past, Lee opted not to come to New York, and he included the team on his no-trade clause when he was on the Phillies.
