Marchand: Not Too Concerned With Pineda
The New York Yankees are in Tampa for Spring Training and they arrive there with a lot of questions. Can they take back the AL East after faltering down the stretch in 2015?
Can the pitching staff hold up? How are the elbows of Masahiro Tanaka and Nathan Eovaldi? Can Luis Severino pitch a full major league season?
How will CC Sabathia come back after knee issues and a stint in alcohol rehab? But perhaps the most pressing question of all? How does Michael Pineda really look at camp after appearing to show up overweight and out of shape?
On the field, will the Yankees be without Aroldis Chapman for a period of time? The recently acquired closer could face that reality stemming from his alleged domestic violence incident this offseason.
To answer all those questions and more, we brought in Yankees insider Andrew Marchand.
