Teixeira goes gluten-free, A-Rod begins taking reps at first base, and more

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

NY Post | George A. King III: Didi Gregorius reported to camp a day early on Tuesday, and has already received hitting tips from A-Rod. If there's anyone on the team that's fit to offer hitting advice it's A-Rod, and if there's anyone that could most use his tutelage it's Didi.

NY Daily News | Mark Feinsand: As is the case most years, the DH spot for the Yanks will need to be occupied by a rotating cast of elder statesmen. This is why, as he attempts to prove his value to the team, A-Rod is breaking in a first basemen's glove this spring. To help him with the transition, Mark Teixeira has taken him under his wing.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: Jennings has a series of Yankees notes, none more depressing than the news that Tex won't be doing any new editions of Foul Territory.

ESPN NY | Andrew Marchand: Continuing the parade of Teixeira news, he took up a new, strict diet and workout regimen this offseason, and he's hoping it will not only keep him healthier, but also help him return to producing 30 homers and 100 RBI in 2015.
