News: Carpenter finished the spring with a 4.50 ERA and seven strikeouts in eight innings of work.
Impact: Carpenter figures to slot into a middle-relief role with the Yankees, though with the emergence of Adam Warren as the team's fifth starter, it's possible the right-hander will get some higher leverage opportunities later in games. The 29-year-old has posted solid numbers over the last two seasons, including a 10.1 K/9 in 2013 and 9.9 K/9 in 2014. He may be a reliable source of holds while Warren remains in the rotation, but he's unlikely to receive many -- if any -- save opportunities.
