New York Daily News | Justin Tasch: Even though tension between Alex Rodriguez and the front office seems to be building as spring training approaches, manager Joe Girardi says his relationship with A-Rod remains a good one.

New York Post | Mike Puma: Joe Girardi plans to try Rodriguez at designated hitter and third base in spring training to see where he is physically before possibly testing the waters at first base.

ESPN New York | Andrew Marchand: Representing the Yankees on every prospect list in existence, Aaron Judge has positioned himself to possibly join the outfield mix for 2016 with a great deal of upside and personality.

Hartford Courant | Dom Amore: The Yankees have signed 22-year-old former UConn pitcher Anthony Marzi and invited him to spring training. He previously went undrafted his junior and senior years of college.

Newsday | Colin Stephenson: Spring training will mark the first one without Derek Jeter in more than 20 years, and that's just one of the big unknowns Joe Girardi will have to face when the team gathers in Tampa later this month.
