GM Brian Cashman: Yankees plan to keep Alex Rodriguez on roster
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Yankees have no intentions of parting ways with Alex Rodriguez prior to opening day, general manager Brian Cashman told reporters on Thursday, per NJ.com.

"He's on the team. He's got a three-year contract," Cashman said.

Rodriguez missed all of last season while serving a suspension for using performance enhancing drugs. He is owed $61 million in the final three seasons of his 10-year, $275 million contract. He is expected to work as DH and may see occasional time as a corner infielder this season. Rodriguez hit .244/.348/.423 over 156 at-bats back in 2013.

Report: A's could get priced out of signing Cuban 2B Hector Olivera
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With the competition heating up to sign Cuban second baseman Hector Olivera, it appears the chances of the Athletics signing him are dwindling, per InsideBayArea.com.

“It seems like the A’s are going to get priced out of the competition,’’ a source said. “There are teams out there that can simply outbid Oakland.’’

The Dodgers, Padres, Red Sox and Yankees all have interest in Olivera, according to the report. Olivera hit .323 with a .407 on-base percentage, .505 slugging percentage and .912 OPS over 10 seasons in Cuba.

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka felt he threw with 'more force' Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka threw 40 pitches during a bullpen session Thursday and received rave reviews from pitching coach Larry Rothschild.

“He threw great,” Rothschild said, per The Journal News. “Everything is progressing the way we like, so we’ll just keep going. … No (restrictions). We’re just bringing him along at a pace that he’s more accustomed to. A little different schedule as far as not trying to put a lot of pitches on him in a three- or four-day period, but still get him built up and get the stamina built up. That’s pretty much what we’re doing.”

Tanaka said he felt more arm strength Thursday than in his previous bullpen sessions, and he also felt he was throwing the ball harder.

“I think I was throwing with more force than the last bullpen,” Tanaka said. “As far as hitting the spots, the location goes, I think it was better than the last bullpen as well. … I feel that I’m on the right track. Going through the workouts and going through the bullpen today also, it does give me confidence that I’m moving in the right direction.”

Yankees' Brendan Ryan hoping for more playing time
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Yankees infielder Brendan Ryan is hoping for more playing time in 2015, according to MLB.com.

Ryan hit just .167 last season, but said numbers can be deceiving. "My average was terrible, but I felt like I hit the ball way better than my average showed," Ryan said. "I just didn't have much love. When you don't have a whole lot of love with few at-bats, things get blown out of proportion."

Ryan said he wants to win games, and hopes that he can earn more playing time if he's looking better at the plate, particularly against left-handers. "If I'm getting it done and helping us win, hopefully I'll get to play a little more," he said. 

Ryan hit .167 over 114 at-bats last year.

Girardi: Yankees' Alex Rodriguez is open to playing some 1B
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

When asked if Alex Rodriguez has issued him an apology, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said "that sort of thing I'll keep between us, but we had a good conversation, and he's ready to go to work," according to Daniel Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal.

Rodriguez released a hand-written apology for the mistakes he made that lead to his season-long suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal on Feb. 17.

Outside of a possible apology, Girardi indicated that he's talked to Rodriguez about playing some first base this season and that the embattled infielder open to contributing at first.

Said Rodriguez on Girardi, per NJ.com: "I would go through a wall for Joe."

The 39-year-old completed batting practice on Wednesday alingside Yankees prospect Michael O'Neil. New York's first officiall full-squad workpit is on Thursday. Rodriguez is expected to open the year as the team's designated hitter. He hit .244/.348/.423 over 156 at-bats back in 2013.
