Around the Empire: Yankees news - 3/5/16

Beltran wants to keep playing after contract with Yankees ends; Yankees selling one percent stake in team; Kaprielian impressive in spring training debut

ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: Although he is going into the last year of his contract with the Yankees, Carlos Beltran has every hope of playing for at least two more years. The Yankees are not likely to bring him back since they already have Alex Rodriguez signed on as the DH.

CBS Sports | Mike Axisa: One of the minority owners of the Yankees is selling a one percent stake in the team. It could be yours for a measly $24 million.

Newsday | Erik Boland: James Kaprielian made his spring training debut yesterday and tossed two perfect innings while striking out Jose Iglesias and Ian Kinsler. A talent evaluator for an opposing team said he wouldn't be surprised if he is called up in 2016.

New York Post | George A. King III: Aroldis Chapman is in the process of becoming a US citizen.
