Yankees' Bryan Mitchell: Competing for back-end bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mitchell will be one of five pitchers vying for the last two spots in the starting rotation, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Mitchell suffered a toe injury in spring training last year that held him out for the better part of the season, but once healthy he pitched solely as a starter, working to a 3.24 ERA over five starts. With the top three spots seemingly accounted for, the 25-year-old righty will compete with Luis Cessa, Luis Severino, Chad Green, and Adam Warren for one of the remaining spots. Should Mitchell lose out, it's possible the Yankees will send him back down to the minors to stay stretched out as a starter, but he's also had some experience as a reliever and could be deployed in a long-relief role in the big league bullpen.

Yankees' Greg Bird: Favorite to win everyday reps at first
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird is expected to be the team's starting first baseman, Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News reports.

Following the retirement of Mark Teixeira at the conclusion of last season, Bird appeared to have the inside track to take over at first base and it appears he still maintains that edge despite the late offseason signing of Chris Carter. Bird missed all of 2016 with a shoulder injury and though he was only able to participate in the Arizona Fall League as a DH, the 24-year-old is heading into spring training fully healthy and with no restrictions.

Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Arrives at camp Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellsbury made his debut at the Yankees spring facility Tuesday, George A. King of the New York Post reports.

The outfielder was delayed a couple of days while staying with his family for the birth of his second child, but he's since reported to camp and will be a full participant going forward. The 33-year-old has struggled at times to live up to the $153 million deal he inked with New York prior to the 2014 season, but he's still slated to command a spot atop the lineup and man the every day duties in center field in 2017.

Yankees' Ronald Herrera: Hindered with inflamed shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera is experiencing shoulder inflammation and will be out approximately two weeks, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Herrera's spring training will be put on hold as he deals with an inflamed shoulder. Once he's healthy and ready to return, he'll likely finish camp with the big club, then head to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Herrera spent the vast majority of the 2016 season at Double-A Trenton, where he threw for a 3.75 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 23 games, all of which were starts.

Yankees' Jon Niese: Working for bullpen role this spring
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Niese (knee) will compete for a spot in the Yankees' bullpen during spring training, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Although he's spent the vast majority of his career as a starter, the Yankees have multiple younger and higher-upside options for their rotation in 2017, which bumps Niese into a competition for a role as a long reliever. The left-hander got his first extended experience as a reliever last season, and given the relative inexperience of the others vying for a bullpen spot, he has a decent chance to break camp with the major league squad.
