CBS Sports | Dayn Perry & Mike Axisa: Over the weekend, the Yankees announced a shift in their minor league teams. In Double-A, they’re going from Trenton to Somerset. Tampa is dropping from High-A to Low-A, while Hudson Valley is their new High-A affiliate. The Yankees no longer have affiliations in Trenton, Staten Island, and Charleston. The ownership groups in the first two of those three are especially upset at the news and the manner in which the Yankees have handled it. | Jesse Sanchez: Jasson Dominguez is one of the most intriguing prospects the Yankees have had in decades. Despite the hype and the multi-million dollar deal he signed, Dominguez isn’t particularly fazed by any of it, and seems intent on making the most of his immense potential.

New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: Back in September, Aaron Hicks wore a pair of custom cleats to honor Negro League greats, and now they’re on the market for a good cause. Hicks will auction them off, with the profits going to More Than Baseball, an organization that assists minor league players after their playing careers end.

Beyond the Box Score | Devan Fink: Whether or not the Yankees will even offer free agent catcher J.T. Realmuto a contract remains to be seen. What is evident is that his production over the past two seasons has been very impressive.
