Ivan Nova is hard to move; Rob Refsnyder unaffected by Castro trade; Brian McCann likes the rotation's potential; Yankees want to help improve fan experience; Taking a look at the team's AAA depth

New York Post | George A King III: To a certain extent, the Yankees have a surplus of potential rotation options even though most of come with question marks. Because of these uncertainties, the team is still on the market for starting pitching help that could help stabilize a questionable rotation. To help make space the team has made Ivan Nova available, though it seems nobody wants him.

New York Post | George A King III: Rob Refsnyder said the Starlin Castro trade would not affect how he prepares for the season. | Ryan Hatch: Brian McCann "loves" the Yankees' rotation as it stands currently and what it can potentially bring. The Yankees catcher believes flamethrower Nathan Eovaldi could be an ace if he lives up to his potential.

Deadspin | Kevin Draper: While the team continues to try and improve off the field, it also is trying to improve the field. Including hiring a third party to survey Yankee fans about their thoughts on the team and the stadium. Even gathering their opinions on potential fire-pits in the stadium.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Taking a look at the Yankees AAA depth and the potential injury replacements as they currently stand. Certain positions like the outfield, bullpen, and middle infield (by virtue of the Starlin Castro trade) seem to be okay, while the rotation, third base and catcher could use more depth.
