White Sox and Red Sox interested in Adam Ottavino; Machado and Harper prefer Yanks over Phils, but Yankees have also checked on Freddy Galvis; Imagining Noah Syndergaard without his long locks had he been traded to the Yankees.

Danny Abriano | SNY: Although they have yet to make a bullpen move, the Yankees have shown interest in both Adam Ottavino and Zach Britton. The Red Sox and White Sox have both been connected to the former, and there’s also the possibility that the Rockies bring him back. If they want to lock one of these top bullpen arms up, they might want to get a move on it.

Mark Fischer | Daily News: Most publications share our struggles in searching for content during arguably the slowest week of the year for baseball news, so here’s a look at what Noah Syndergaard would have looked like with his hair cut if he had actually been traded to the Yanks. It also serves a good opportunity to revisit the team’s unnecessary hair policy.

Bryan Hoch | MLB.com: Hoch published a mailbag piece, which touches on a number of current Yankee news. For one, Hoch seems to buy the Yanks’ disinterest in signing Harper, and notes the team’s potential interest in Freddy Galvis. There’s plenty of other topics touched on, including the tangible upgrade of Machado over Miguel Andujar, Clint Frazier’s health and what the spring holds for Greg Bird.
