Daily News | Mike Lupica: Aaron Judge is already beloved in New York for his mammoth home runs and larger-than-life persona, but it’s time for Judge to become the biggest star in the biggest city, but if he wants to do that, he’ll have to stay healthy. But then again, Mickey Mantle was the star of the city and he got hurt a lot, so yeah.

NY Post | Ken Davidoff: Gary Sanchez is an All-Star and a crucial piece to the Yankees’ championship puzzle. But when his offense is top-tier, he seems to lag defensively. If there is a season, it would be important for Sanchez to thrive both at the plate and behind it, and bring it all together for a monster season.

CBS Sports | R.J. Anderson: Will the Yankees play baseball in New York this season? Governor Cuomo would like to think so, saying there is little risk with a lot of reward to have the Yanks in the Big Apple in 2020. First, there has to be baseball of course.
