Around the Empire: Yankees news - 2/9/16

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

SB Nation | Grant Brisbee: Bryce Harper won't be a free agent for another three years, which is more than enough time for teams other than the Yankees and Dodgers to become potential suitors for him. | Bryan Hoch: The Yankees are going to need Jacoby Ellsbury, Mark Teixeira, Starlin Castro, Chase Headley, among others, to rebound after disappointing 2015 seasons.

Beyond the Box Score | Joe Vasile: Thanks to his new splitter, Nathan Eovaldi having a good year might be the key to a strong Yankees rotation during the 2016 season.

Sports Illustrated | Cliff Corcoran: Joe DiMaggio, Mike Mussina, and Andy Pettitte all had great final career games for the Yankees, which rank among some of the best in Major League Baseball history.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: The Yankees have a much stronger and younger bench than last year with Aaron Hicks, Dustin Ackley, Gary Sanchez, and others.
