Around the Empire: Yankees news - 4/1/16

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

New York Daily News | John Harper: Andrew Miller insists that he isn't going to let a chip fracture in his non-pitching hand keep him off the roster for Opening Day. It's good to see that Miller wants to help the team at all costs, but playing hurt can really end up doing more harm than good. Hopefully he does what is best for him.

Curbed New York | Amy Plitt: Yankees fans will have a chance to ride a circa-1917 train on Opening Day from Grand Central at 11:30 am. The Mets will also have a vintage train to carry passengers to Queens for their home opener on April 8th.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: The Yankees might have to call on some bullpen reinforcements they previously sent down to minor league camp with the injuries to Bryan Mitchell and Andrew Miller. Which players are most deserving of a spot after their results in spring training?

ESPN | Wallace Matthews: Joe Girardi still hasn't announced whether CC Sabathia or Ivan Nova will be the last member of the team's starting rotation. It's possible that the manager is stalling to see if Brian Cashman can work out something in a trade, or maybe he truly can't decide between the two. Either way, Matthews argues it's unfair to keep the players waiting much longer.

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: The Yankees and Mets have taken different routes to the recipe for pitching success. The Mets have one of the best starting rotations in all of baseball, and the Yankees have assembled one of the best bullpens. Which will prove to be more valuable?
