Daily News | Wayne Coffey:  Ivan Nova isn't sure when he'll see his first real action since his Tommy John surgery last April, but he's feeling optimistic, both about his health and the outlook of the team.

Yahoo! Sports | Jeff Passan: Major League Baseball has made a change to its foreign policy, removing the requirement for Cuban players to obtain a license before signing with an MLB team. This opens the doors for Yoan Moncada to free agency.

CBS New York | Sweeney Murti: In the lead-up to spring training and Opening Day, it's inevitable that every Yankee player will be asked to give their opinion on A-Rod's return. On Tuesday, Dellin Betances gave his by saying the team will welcome Rodriguez back "with open arms."

The Buffalo News | Tim Graham: Derek Jeter has made it no secret that he has interest in owning a pro team; we just assumed it would be a baseball team. News out of Buffalo suggests that Jeter previously expressed some level of interest in the purchase of the Bills.
