New York Times | David Waldstein and Billy Witz: Alex Rodriguez showed up early to camp and, of course, the media pounced all over him.

Newsday | Erik Boland: The Red Sox signed Yoan Moncada to a $31.5 million signing bonus after the Yankees only bid about $25 million. Brian Cashman stated that bidding any higher would have been "uncomfortable" considering the financial constraints of ownership.

New York Post | George A. King III: Masahiro Tanaka threw a 35-pitch bullpen session and felt physically fine after throwing his entire repertoire. Nathan Eovaldi is also starting his bullpen sessions and he's working on developing a splitter, which will hopefully increase the number of whiffs this season. | Ryan Hatch: Going into spring training, Carlos Beltran feels confident in his health. He also offered his comments on A-Rod's return, and feels that he could be an offensive contributor this season.
