Around the Empire: Yankees news - 2/27/16

Domingo German was sent for an MRI after experiencing elbow pain; Aaron Judge looked impressive during batting practice; Alex Rodriguez to mentor Starlin Castro.

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports | Brendan Kuty: Domingo German experienced pain in his elbow while throwing a bullpen session yesterday morning and was sent for an MRI. He is recovering from Tommy John surgery.

New York Daily News | Erin Durkin: The New York City Health Department is trying to get legislation passed that would ban smokeless tobacco from all sports arenas, including Yankee Stadium and Citi Field.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: Aaron Judge took batting practice against Tony Pena yesterday and put his power on display, leaving some Yankees impressed.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: When the Yankees traded Adam Warren, they lost one of last year's best middle relievers. It will be difficult to replace him, and the Yankees really need Ivan Nova or Bryan Mitchell to step up into the role of spot starter/long reliever.

Newsday | Erik Boland: Starlin Castro is getting reps at third base during spring training, and Alex Rodriguez is going to be a mentor to him; Michael Pineda is said to be off to a strong start early on.
