CC Sabathia - #52 - Pitcher - 6'7" - 285lbs
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sabathia (knee) reported feeling "pretty much back to 100 percent" after undergoing knee surgery in July, MLB.com reports.
Impact: Sabathia began throwing again in September, and has continued working out at Yankee Stadium twice a week. He expects to be good to go for spring training, and is hopeful he'll be able to return to a full workload of over 200 innings in the 2015 season.
Brian Roberts - #14 - Second Base - 5'9" - 175lbs
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Roberts announced his retirement Friday, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Impact: A two-time All-Star, Roberts hit just .237/.300/.360 in 91 games with the Yankees this season, and ultimately decided that he just could no longer play at the level he demanded of himself. Roberts, now 37, was drafted by the Orioles with a supplemental first-round pick in 1999 and was in the major leagues within two years, but injuries limited him to 192 games over his final four seasons in Baltimore.
Alex Rodriguez - #13 - Third Base - 6'3" - 228lbs
Fri. Oct 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Manager Joe Girardi has spoken to Rodriguez about the possibility of playing first base in 2015, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Impact: With Rodriguez having missed the entirety of 2014 and entering the 2015 season at 39 years old, the Yankees are unsure of his ability to be an everyday third baseman. Mark Teixeira is still holding down first, however, so Rodriguez likely wouldn't see a ton of playing time there, but it could be a way to keep his bat in the lineup for a few extra games.
