New York Post | George A. King III: It was a tough second half for Luke Voit last year, but now he says he feels the best he has in a long time, having healed from his abdominal injury and sports hernia, while shedding some weight as well. Voit was told he “tore everything down there” after visiting a specialist, and now that he’s healed, we should expect more mashing from the big slugger in 2020.

NJ.com | Mike Rosenstein: Keith Law released his top 100 prospect rankings over on The Athletic, and his Yankees selections are recapped here. Clarke Schmidt was the highest-rated Yankee, followed by fellow righty Deivi Garcia, and the only position player within the organization to make the list was the martian himself in Jasson Dominguez, just making the cut at 99. Tyler will have more on this later!

New York Daily News | Bradford William Davis: Everyone is offering their opinion on the sign-stealing scandal, so why not The Captain? Derek Jeter spoke at the Marlins’ spring training camp on Monday, and called the entire situation a “black eye for the sport,” and that the Astros have been paying the price for the scandal that has dominated headlines throughout the offseason. So there’s the opinion of a recent Hall of Famer.
