Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports | Jesse Sanchez: The Office of Foreign Assets Control reportedly has officially cleared highly-regarded Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada for signing. All that must be done now is for MLB to give him the official OK. So... get it done, Cash.

RotoGraphs | Robert J. Baumann: Whoever the Yankees pick as closer, the two-headed monster called "Dellin Betandrew" is going to be a chore for opposing teams to handle at the end of games.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: These Yankees prospects did not simply rest during the off-season; standout performances in the Arizona Fall League and winter ball should help catch the Yankees' eyes. So which prospects played the best? | Barry M. Bloom: Yankees broadcaster John Sterling has been doing well over the past couple weeks in wake of the Edgewater, NJ fire that destroyed his apartment building and many of his possessions. He's been staying temporarily in the home of a Yankees fan in Upper Saddle River who is away for the winter. Great to hear.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Stephen Drew and Mark Teixeira rank as two of the most underappreciated Yankees at the moment. Even if we're not optimistic about them, they deserve a chance.
