Yankees' Caleb Smith: Returns to New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith, a 2016 Rule 5 draft selection, did not make the Cubs' Opening Day roster and will be returned to the Yankees.

Per the guidelines of the Rule 5 draft, Smith had to make the Cubs' active roster in order to remain in their organization. The defending World Series champions decided to cut ties with the 25-year-old, so he will begin the 2017 campaign as a Yankees minor-leaguer. The left-hander posted a 3.96 ERA over 63.2 innings at Double-A Trenton in 2016.

Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Expected to bat fifth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that he is "leaning toward" batting Ellsbury fifth, the Associated Press reports.

Ellsbury has been in the two-hole throughout the spring, but he's batting fifth Tuesday and Girardi suggested that is where Ellsbury will be on Opening Day. The Yankees wanted to break up Brett Gardner and Ellsbury (both lefties) at the top of the order, so the new plan is to go with Gary Sanchez in the No. 2 spot followed by Greg Bird, Matt Holliday and Ellsbury. Ellsbury has never started a regular season game in the No. 5 spot.

Yankees' Greg Bird: Expected to bat third
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that he is "leaning toward" batting Bird third in the order, the Associated Press reports.

In the new-look Yankees batting order, Jacoby Ellsbury would bat fifth behind Brett Gardner, Gary Sanchez, Bird and Matt Holliday. By breaking up Gardner and Ellsbury (both lefties) at the top, Girardi feels "it makes it harder to navigate" through the lineup. Bird has been on an absolute tear this spring, smacking 15 extra-base hits (seven homers) in 55 plate appearances, solidifying his grip on the starting role at first base.

Yankees' Jon Niese: Re-signs with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niese is returning to the Yankees on a minor league contract, George A. King III of the New York Post reports.

Niese was released by the Yankees on Sunday, but as expected, the 30-year-old decided to return to the team with the knowledge that he'd be starting the year out in the minors. He'll likely serve as organizational depth at Triple-A.

Yankees' Gary Sanchez: Expected to bat second
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that he is "learning toward" batting Sanchez second in the order, the Associated Press reports.

Most of Girardi's spring lineups have had Sanchez in the three-hole behind Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury, but the skipper offered a new look Tuesday. Wanting to break up Gardner and Ellsbury (both lefties), Girardi slotted Sanchez into the No. 2 spot followed by Greg Bird, Matt Holliday and Ellsbury, and he suggested he will stick with that order on Opening Day. Sanchez went 15-for-44 with four homers and 13 RBI in his first 16 spring games.
