Around the Empire: Yankees news - 4/3/16

NY Daily News | John Healy: Former third base prospects Eric Duncan and Drew Henson reminisce about their time in the Yankees organization. Things could have turned out differently for them if the Yankees hadn't traded for Alex Rodriguez.

NJ.com | Ryan Hatch: The Yankees have traded Carlos Corporan to the Rays in exchange for cash. He failed to make the team as the backup catcher, and the team didn't really have any use for him. Remarkably though, it's only the second trade ever between the two teams.

ESPN New York | Associated Press: Andrew Miller made his first game appearance since being hit in the wrist and didn't report any issues. He has been cleared to wear a brace on his non-throwing hand, so the Yankees will look into that.

NJ.com | Ryan Hatch: It looks like Aroldis Chapman will be staying in Tampa until his suspension is over. He is not allowed to be at the ballpark after gates open to fans, or pitch in minor league games where admission is charged, so he'll spend the next five weeks doing extended spring training and throwing simulation games.
