Yankees Spring Training: A Look At The Pitchers, Catchers

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.


(40-man roster)

Dellin Betances
Cesar Cabral
Joba Chamberlain
Pedro Feliciano
Freddy Garcia
Phil Hughes
George Kontos
Boone Logan
Brad Meyers
D.J. Mitchell
Ivan Nova
David Phelps
Michael Pineda
Clay Rapada
Mariano Rivera
David Robertson
CC Sabathia
Rafael Soriano
Cory Wade

Non-roster Invitees

Manny Banuelos
Daniel Burawa
Juan Cedeno
Matt Daley
Manny Delcarmen
Brett Marshall
Adam Miller
Mike O'Connor
Ryan Pope
Graham Stoneburner
Adam Warren
Chase Whitley

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?


(40-man roster)

Francisco Cervelli
Russell Martin
Austin Romine

(Non-roster Invitees)

Jose Gil
Kyle Higashioka
Gustavo Molina
J.R. Murphy
Gary Sanchez

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.
