New York Post | George King: Cashman's acquisition of Starlin Castro for Adam Warren was seen as a victory, unlike his trade of Justin Wilson for two pitching prospects. Will the Yankees upgrade their bullpen internally, or have to resort to one of the expensive deals on the market?

LoHud | Chad Jennings: One of the pitchers in the Wilson deal, Luis Cessa, was ranked 18th in the Yankees' system by MLB Pipeline. Chad Green did not rank in the top 30. Jake Cave made the top 30 with his new team after being selected by the Reds in the Rule 5 draft. Evan Rutckyj did not crack the top 30 with the Braves.

Pinstriped Prospects | Jed Weisberger: Despite the love he gets from fans, the Yankees are probably better off trading Rob Refsnyder now that they have found a solution to the second base vacancy with Starlin Castro. | Ryan Hatch: A rare Mickey Mantle rookie card sold at auction last week for $525,800, the most ever paid for a Mantle rookie card.
