Spring Training can be a interesting time. Young guys looking to make a name for themselves. Older guys looking to revive a career. Players looking to get their work in as they prepare for a new season and work on their craft.
For the five Yankees I’m going to talk about in this slideshow, spring training this year is important to them for different reasons. Some are looking to regain their form. Some need to work on their craft. Some need to prove they are healthy and can play again.
The Yankees will need production from all five of these players one way or the other in order to compete this season. Whether it’s the role we expect them to be in, or a new role they’ve never had before they are going to need to produce.
