FOX Sports | Ken Rosenthal: Yankees president Randy Levine is not happy with the amount of money the team pays in revenue sharing compared to the Mets. He is hopeful that this issue will be addressed at the next labor sharing agreement.

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Rob Refsnyder has had a rough couple of days on the field. On Friday, he misplayed a grounder and the ball smacked him in the mouth. Yesterday, a ball took a bad hop and hit him in the cheek. He's also made three errors over the past two days.

New York Post | George A. King III: After struggling at the plate throughout spring training, Mark Teixeira has said that something in the timing of his swing is off. He will spend the next week trying to get that straightened out.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: The Yankees needed one of the Triple-A pitchers to step up during spring training, and Bryan Mitchell has pitched well so far. Now the Yankees have to decide if they want him to take over Adam Warren's old role on the team, or if they would rather have him in Triple-A as an emergency starter who is stretched out and ready to go.
