Baseball is back! Well, sort of.

New York Yankees pitchers and catchers report to camp down in Tampa today as they get set to prepare for the 2016 MLB season.

This means we can start speculating who will be making the final roster and who we could expect to be called up later in the season. Obviously when it comes to pitchers we are led to wonder about the back end of the Yankees rotation as well as the bridge to their trio of weapons to close out the game.

Can C.C. Sabathia be a decent back-of-the-rotation starter? Can Ivan Nova show any glimpses of hope that he can help this team? Can Jacob Lindgren make the team and be the bridge to the Betances/Miller/Chapman trio? And then the obvious; can Masahiro Tanaka stay healthy and be a consistent top of the rotation starter alongside Luis Severino?

All these questions will be answered eventually as players report today.
