Around the Empire: New York Yankees News - 3/24/15

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller are involved in one of the few position battles taking place in spring training for the Yankees this year, but neither appear to be all that wrapped up in who gets the title of closer.

New York Post | Dan Martin & George A. King III: The NY Post has a few notes from Tampa, including Nathan Eovaldi's goal to cut down on the number of hits he gives up by improving his slider and splitter, the health status of Jacoby Ellsbury and Jose Pirela, and how Ivan Nova is encouraged by Matt Harvey's comeback from Tommy John surgery. | Ryan Hatch: The pitchers in the running for the fifth starter spot are making the decision a difficult one for Joe Girardi, but the Yankee skipper says he may settle on a name by the end of the week.

New York Daily News | Andy Martino: Scouts are down on what they've seen from Carlos Beltran and Stephen Drew this spring. They think Beltran's aging legs make him a liability in right field and that it could be just a matter of time before Drew is replaced by Jose Pirela or Rob Refsnyder. That's why these scouts get paid the big bucks, folks.
