SNY | Danny Abriano: The Yankees released their 60-man player pool for the 2020 season. It included some top prospects such as Deivi Garcia, Clarke Schmidt, Estevan Florial, and a few others. Which one of them could have the biggest impact?

CBS Sports | Mike Axisa: We are a few days from the start of “summer camp,” and there are still questions that need answers. Here, you’ll see a projected lineup, rotation, and bullpen for the Bombers, as well as injury concerns and much more! | Brendan Kuty: In case you missed it, the Yankees signed Matt Duffy to a minor league deal, which was announced on Sunday. The infielder has played 452 games between the Giants and the Rays since entering the league five years ago. Find out why this signing could be an important one for New York.

NY Post | Greg Joyce: Early in the offseason, Aroldis Chapman amended his contract to a three-year, $48 million deal. Well, he’s putting that money to use. The closer purchased a $150,000 Jeep with a red interior, including Chapman’s “The Cuban Missile” logo. The craziest part about it might not be the price; it might be that it has six wheels!
