ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: Every hitting coach candidate the Yankees interviewed had a #2 in mind or felt like the game had evolved to a point that an assistant coach was needed. Brian Cashman said new hitting coach Jeff Pentland and assistant hitting coach Alan Cockrell share the same hitting philosophy. | Brendan Kuty: Here are five facts that you need to know about the newest Yankee, Chris Martin. One of the most interesting facts involve Martin working at Lowe's after he tore his labrum and nearly missed his chance at playing professional baseball even though he'd already been drafted twice.

New York Post | Dan Martin: The Yankees were in attendance for Johan Santana's Venezuelan Winter League outing that marks the beginning of his attempt to try and come back to MLB. | Anthony Castrovince: An offseason in which the Yankees aren't going after the Max Scherzers and James Shieldses on the market feels strange, but that restraint could really pay off in the short term future. The club seems to be relying on a strong bullpen and improved defense to better themselves from last season. | Kevin Manahan: How many beers could Wade Boggs consume on a cross-country flight? Apparently nearly double the rumored amount, according to Charlie Day. What a ridiculous man.
