MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: As the training in the spring inches closer and closer to being a thing, the rosters are pretty much all set. There’s always the potential for trades, late signings, and injuries to occur. Let us hope the latter is not the case, as health will be a big factor this year. Here is a look at the Yankees’ roster going into the spring.
New York Daily News | Mike Mazzeo: The Yankees will soon be training in Tampa for the 2017 regular season. There will be questions when they arrive. There will be questions when they leave.

MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: Unless you didn’t watch or hear anything about it, the Cubs were the winners of the 2016 World Series. One member of that team is on the Yankees.
