Around the Empire: Yankees News - 3/18/15

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Taking a look at what we've learned so far in spring training, and what still needs to be sorted out.  Two big issues: is there a spot for Jose Pirela with how good his bat has looked this spring, and how might the pre-Betances bullpen pecking order shake out?

NY Post | George King III: Even new hitting coach Jeff Pentland thinks Brian Cashman made a "gutsy move" by bringing him onto the Yankees coaching staff.

NY Daily News | Mark Feinsand: Jacoby Ellsbury will be out at least two days with a mild abdominal strain.  It's not good news, but at this point, it doesn't look serious (knocks on wood). | Ryan Hatch: How'd CC Sabathia look in his first spring training outing?  The results were so-so, but the fact that Sabathia said his knee felt good - and his fastball touched 96 - should give Yankee fans hope that he can at least be productive in 2015.
