Around the Empire: New York Yankees News - 2/8/15

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: Former Yankee prospect Peter O'Brien, whom the Yankees dealt to Arizona last season in the Martin Prado trade, might find a big opportunity in Arizona, and could conceivably find himself in the majors on Opening Day. | Brendan Kuty: Brian Cashman won't officially say that the Yankees are out on James Shields, but his latest quotes strongly hint that the Yankees are done shelling out the cash for this offseason.

New York Daily News | Wayne Coffey: Learn a lot more about Rob Refsnyder's personality in this deep dive on the potential second baseman of the future. | Ryan Hatch: Alex Rodriguez has at least one fan out there - former Yankee David Cone.  Cone predicts that A-Rod will hit 15 to 20 homers next season, citing his work ethic and his hitting approach as reasons why we shouldn't count out the old slugger just yet.
