Around the Empire: Yankees News - 3/2/15

Gregorius has flown under the radar at spring training thanks to attention on A-Rod; Yankees have decided who will start first three ST games; Pineda talks season goals; Ellsbury's drop in production last year partially due to luck.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports | Ryan Hatch: One of the perks of Alex Rodriguez's return and all of the media attention that he's getting is that it's allowed Didi Gregorius to fly somewhat under the radar since spring training started.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: The Yankees have set their first three starters of spring training and it will be Adam Warren in the opener, Nathan Eovaldi for game two and Esmil Rogers for game three. Chase Whitley will piggyback one of those starts. | Barry M. Bloom: Michael Pineda threw his first live batting practice of spring training on Sunday without a hitch. Afterwards, he told the media that his goal for the season is to stay healthy.

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: In his first year as a Yankee, Jacoby Ellsbury experienced a drop in production from his 2013 year with the Red Sox, and some of that can be blamed on bad luck.
