Good morning everyone, hope that you’re all doing well. Spring training keeps rolling on, as the Yankees head up to Clearwater to face off against their former skipper Joe Girardi and the Philadelphia Phillies. We’re going to get our first look — assuming some folks post video on Twitter or something, since this game isn’t being televised locally — at Deivi García today, with the young pitcher vying for a spot in the starting rotation.

While you’re waiting for the game to start, consider browsing through the articles we’ll have up for you today. Dan continues his breakdown of the Yankees organizational depth with a look into the third basemen in the system, and Erica provides a season preview on Brett Gardner. John has a discussion on where Derek Dietrich can make sense as a member of the main roster, and Andrés will recap the action we get from the Yanks-Phillies matchup.

Fun Questions

1. Is Gary Sánchez’s early success a positive sign or much ado about nothing?

2. Which NRI do you think has a better shot of cracking the roster: Jay Bruce or Derek Dietrich?
