Around the Empire: Yankees News - 4/2/15

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

New York Daily News | Anthony McCarron: Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez thinks that Masahiro Tanaka isn't healthy and won't make it through the year without his elbow falling apart. As much as Pedro's opinion on pitching should be respected, he isn't a doctor. People with medical degrees that have examined Tanaka suggested this course of action. | Brendan Kuty: Another former Red Sox pitcher decided to weigh in on another Yankee pitcher - Curt Schilling thinks fans shouldn't be worried about Dellin Betances' rough spring. He says throwing at a lower velocity in spring training is perfectly understandable.

New York Daily News | Mark Feinsand: Didi Gregorius is feeling better after spraining his wrist over the weekend just as his backup has been knocked out of commission for at least a month. He believes he could have played on Wednesday if he had been allowed to.

CBS Sports | Matt Snyder: The Yankees are, unsurprisingly, the most popular team liked by Facebook users. The team claims at least one county in 24 different states. Hilariously, neither the Mets nor the Athletics managed to claim a single county. Why even bother existing?

New York Times | Billy Witz: Masahiro Tanaka is relieved that he was able to make it through spring training healthy after missing a large chunk of time last season. There will be questions and doubts about the health of his elbow every time he struggles, probably from now on, but only Tanaka himself really knows how he's feeling, and he says he's good to go.
