New York Post | Dan Martin: Masahiro Tanaka arrived to the Yankees' spring training complex yesterday, and said that he was not sure he would be ready to pitch on Opening Day after undergoing surgery to remove a bone spur from his elbow in October. Larry Rothschild said that he thinks Tanaka is in a good place given that it's early in the spring, but the team won't rush him.

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: MLB ranked Brian McCann number six in their top 10 catchers list. He jumped up two spots compared to last year's ranking.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: The Yankees still have a spot on the 25-man roster to fill. What type of player should they fill the spot with?

New York Post | Dan Martin: Ivan Nova looks to be the odd-man out in the Yankees' rotation this year, and he is not very pleased to find himself in the bullpen. He stated that his struggles last year were not related to his Tommy John surgery and that he sees himself as a starter, not a reliever.
