CBS Sports | Jason Butt: Chris Capuano has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 quadriceps strain, and an MRI is still needed to determine the severity of the injury. Nonetheless, Capuano won't be ready by Opening Day.

New York Post | Kevin Kernan: In a nice biographical piece, family members and people within the Yankees organization reflect on the impact Aaron Judge has had already. Reggie Jackson has compared his power to Willie Stargell, and the Giancarlo Stanton comparisons are also abound. His parents also talk of how blessed they are, and they talked a little bit about adopting him.

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Chili Davis' decision to be the Red Sox hitting coach was a tough one, and it really came down to just the Yankees and Red Sox. He would have chosen New York, but because Boston had offered him his first coaching position as the hitting coach of Triple-A Pawtucket, he felt a bit more loyalty toward their organization.

New York Daily News | Mark Feinsand: When asked about re-signing Stephen Drew, Brian Cashman thinks that Drew's 2014 was an "aberration", and that his talent just hasn't fallen off a cliff. Even though he admits it was a gamble to invest $5 million, he does think that he will bounce back this season.
