MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Detroit Tigers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Bleacher Report | Adam Wells: Gerrit Cole has found his new home. The new Yankee ace and his wife Amy have bought a ridiculously nice mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut for roughly $5.6 million. The house sits on two acres, has five bedrooms and 9,000 square feet. It’s also a short 30-minute drive to Yankee Stadium, depending on traffic of course. | Randy Miller: The MLB draft, with its shortened format, is coming up in a couple short months (potentially), and the Yanks have some options for their first-round pick. Among the candidates are college pitchers like Louisville’s Bobby Miller, Auburn’s Tanner Burns and Georgia’s Cole Wilcox.

Newsday | Erik Boland: Whenever the 2020 season starts, if it in fact does, DJ LeMahieu will likely be in a regular role at second base, with Gleyber Torres taking over shortstop, Gio Urshela and Miguel Andujar battling for the hot corner and Luke Voit handling first base. In this look at second base in the Yankees’ organization, LeMahieu should feel back at home at his natural position in what could be his last season in pinstripes.
