New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: Yankees ownership and the executives responsible for player development thought long and hard about bringing a large group back to Tampa during the fall, when public health experts warned of a second wave. With COVID-19 cases spiking across the country, especially in Florida, the Yankees have decided not to hold instructional camp. The Yankees and Cardinals are the two teams in baseball who are not having a traditional instructional camp. | Matt Monagan: At this point, you’ve probably heard a lot about Jasson Dominguez. If not, he’s the Yankees’ 17-year-old No. 1 prospect. Once you see him, you’ll think he’s a giant among men. | Randy Miller: Michael Kay is no fan of analytically-scripted playoff games. “That game will get me for a long time,” he said regarding Game Two of the ALDS between the Yankees and Rays. Kay also criticized Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts for relying on analytics Sunday night in Game Five of the World Series.
