CBS Sports | Matt Snyder: Mark Teixeira has said that he wants to reach 500 career home runs and play four or five more years. He has 394 home runs now, so it's a feasible goal if he can find a way to stay healthy.

NJ.com | Ryan Hatch: Spring training games have been underway for a week and a half, but Brett Gardner has yet to make his debut. He's been nursing a bone bruise in his left wrist since October and the Yankees finally feel comfortable putting him in a game. Gardner is set to make his spring debut next Wednesday, March 16th.

Newsday | Associated Press: Derek Jeter is headed to Cuba in a few weeks to be part of MLB's delegation there as the Rays play an exhibition game. The last time an MLB team played an exhibition game in Cuba was in 1999 (the Orioles).

New York Post | George A. King III: Goose Gossage said a lot of things on Thursday. He is currently a guest instructor in the Yankees' camp, so Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi took the opportunity to sit him down for a conversation about it on Friday.
