Around the Internet

  • Star-Ledger | Andy McCullough: As Phil Hughes' Yankee career comes to a close, here's a look into everything that went wrong.
  • NoMaas | SJK: The Yankees once had great depth behind the plate, but now that is gone and Gary Sanchez might not be the future.
  • RotoGraphs | Nathaniel Stoltz: Jose Campos is a bit of a confusing prospect; he was once thought to be a top pitching prospect, but not looks more like an innings eater, only if he can remain healthy.
  • Fangraphs | Dave Cameron: Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson both deserve a qualifying offer.
  • SB Nation | Noah Jarosh: The Yankees might just let Phil Hughes walk in free agency, rather than give a qualifying offer and chance him accepting.
  • Fangraphs | Mark Smith: In a case study of slap hitters, Brett Gardner is on full display.
