Happy Wednesday. It’s an especially happy Wednesday because we get to see Deivi García on the mound! Thank the maker.
Today on the site, Andrés will ponder who actually deserves the final spots on the Opening Day bench, and Joe will follow with a season preview post on the man trying to fend Jay Bruce off for the same role, Mike Tauchman. Kunj will make the case that the recent bullpen injuries mean that the Yankees should turn to old friends on the free agent market for help, and John will write about the fascinating similarities between young Gerrit Cole and potential 2021 top draft pick Jack Leiter.
