Projecting the New York Yankees Final 25-Man Roster at the Start of Spring Games

The Yankees will take the field March 3 for the first spring game of their 2015 season. 

The team is hoping to rebound from a disappointing 2014 season which saw it finish second in the AL East by a whopping 12 games. To do that, the Yankees will have to deal with a new crop of players, injury concerns and the departure of longtime shortstop and surefire Hall of Famer Derek Jeter, as well as the big dark cloud hanging over Alex Rodriguez.

With Derek Jeter Gone, Yankees' Boom-or-Bust Roster Could Face Turbulence

Alex Rodriguez's 2015 Spring Training Debut with Yankees Announced

Following the 2014 World Series, Alex Rodriguez's season-long suspension came to an end. Now, the controversial star has to convince the New York Yankees that he is healthy enough to be a productive piece for the franchise in 2015 and beyond.

Losing Yoan Moncada Might Not Stop Yankees' International Spending Spree

This is not how things are supposed to go for the New York Yankees.

When it comes to desiring a commodity and having a willingness to spend for it, the Yankees are not supposed to swing and miss. And while the occasional whiff has happened under the Steinbrenner family reign, missing out on the prize they covet, for a myriad of reasons, is becoming more common.
