History within reach for three Yanks

All eyes will be on Alex Rodriguez this season, as the slugger is 13 homers away from 700 in his career and 28 away from passing Babe Ruth for third place on the all-time list. Also, Mark Teixeira (394 career HRs) and Carlos Beltran (392) should each get to 400. Simon: Milestones to watch in 2016

Splitter could be a weapon for Eovaldi

Nathan Eovaldi is known for his 100 mph fastball, but his splitter might be the key to his success. Increased use of the pitch last year led to stronger strikeout numbers, suggesting Eovaldi could be poised for a breakout with the right pitch mix. Sarris: Hidden aces (Insider)

Juan Uribe a good fit for the Yankees?

With Greg Bird expected to miss the 2016 season, Uribe could be an interesting name for New York to consider. The veteran's flexibility in the infield is particularly appealing. MLB rumors roundup

Alvarez an option for the Yankees?

Now that Greg Bird is expected to miss the 2016 season with a shoulder injury, is free-agent slugger Pedro Alvarez on New York's radar? The team pursuing the 28-year-old appears highly unlikely. MLB rumors roundup?

Greg Bird will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a right shoulder labrum tear and will miss the 2016 season. Bird had a shoulder injury in May of 2015. This is a serious blow to the Yankees now and in the future. Bird was expected to replace Mark Teixeira as the Yankees' starting first baseman in 2017, while he was due to be insurance for the team at Triple-A in case of injuries to Teixeira or DH Alex Rodriguez this season.

Is Alex Rodriguez truly a changed man?

Last year was Alex Rodriguez's redemption tour. Was his outreach campaign for real, or will he revert to keeping fans and media at arm's length?

Stark: What's fueling baseball's Bullpen Mania?

Thanks to the Royals' success, loading up on relievers has become all the rage. But teams trying to copy their formula should beware: Bulking up your bullpen is not as easy as it looks.

The Yankees agreed on a one-year, $4.1 million contract with Ivan Nova, avoiding arbitration. Nova, who is eligible for free agency after this season, will enter camp in a couple weeks, trying to win a spot in the starting rotation. The Yankees currently have six starters and, if there are no injuries, Nova and CC Sabathia would likely be the ones battling for the fifth spot. The last unsigned Yankee, who is arbitration eligible, is Aroldis Champman. Chapman is slated to be the Yankees closer, but he might be suspended under the new domestic violence policy.

The view of Alex Rodriguez is a lot different now than at this time last year. Off the field, he has gone from pariah to almost beloved. On the field, he went from a "who knows" to a guy the Yankees will rely on to contend in the AL East. He will turn 41 in July and, judging by his active Twitter account, he is training hard for another standout season.

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

Every indication is that the Yankees won't sign one major-league free agent this winter. In 40 years of free agency, has that ever happened?
