Pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training for the New York Yankees on Sunday. The first workout in Tampa, Fla. is scheduled for Monday. Here is a look at the pitchers and catchers who will be in camp for the defending American League East champions.
Players To Watch: Pineda and Kuroda are the new additions to the starting rotation ... It looks as if Hughes and Garcia will fight for the fifth starter role ... The progress of Banuelos and Betances, the most highly-regarded pitching prospects in the organization, will be worth watching ... Chamberlain is coming back from Tommy John surgery ... Can the just-signed Rapada make the team as a lefty specialist?
Players To Watch: Does Romine have any shot at unseating Cervelli for the backup catcher role? He is the most major-league ready of all of the Yankees catching prospects, and might have a chance here ... Speaking of those catching prospects both Sanchez and Murphy are highly-regarded, particularly Sanchez at this time. Let's see if either can make an impression during the early part of camp.
