LoHud | Chad Jennings: Given that only the Yankees currently really only have three totally reliable bullpen arms, the team is going to have to try to sort through many options who have yet to prove themselves in the big leagues. | Joe Giglio: Prior to signing with the Mets for three years/$75 million, there was a rumor floating around that Cespedes' agent contacted the Yankees and expressed Cespedes' desire to remain in NY, even if it wasn't with the Mets.

USA Today | Bob Nightengale: Manfred's 2nd year as the Commissioner of MLB has a lot in store for him, including how he plans to punish players such as Aroldis Chapman under the sport's new domestic violence policy.

Minor League Ball | John Sickels: A list of 35 players in the Yankee minor league system that can be considered "prospects," because of their major-league readiness, high ceilings, and/or ability to play an important role for the Yankees in the future.
