Around the Empire: Yankees News - 3/31/15

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

New York Post | George King III: Tino Martinez has been working as an instructor at the minor league complex at the invitation of Gary Denbo for the last week and he could be in line for a bigger role within the organization.

New York Times | Dave Anderson: Replacing a legend is never easy, and Didi Gregorius has the unenviable task of being the first guy to follow Derek Jeter in the Bronx. Anderson looks at other players who had the task of replacing a legend in New York.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: The bullpen situation basically boils down to four pitchers competing for two open spots. Ten guys are already locked into roles, but Chase Whitley, Chris Martin, Chasen Shreve, and Andrew Bailey must compete for the final spots. There are advantages to each, depending on what the team is looking for.

New York Daily News | Mark Feinsand: Spring training has gone pretty well for Alex Rodriguez after coming into camp as a total unknown. Not only has he played well with the media and in the clubhouse, but he has been one of the most productive hitters on the field.

New York Post | George King III: The Yankees may benefit from the fact that each team in the AL East comes with their fair share of question marks. That could allow a lackluster team to finally make it back to the postseason after a two-year drought.
