Here's the latest out of the American League East..
- Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com ran down his likes and dislikes on the Yankees this season. Heyman likes that the Bombers have kept their strong rotation in tact and believes that even though they acted like a small-market team this winter, they will go out and spend in July if they need to. Meanwhile, Heyman is concerned about the club's age and lack of depth in the minors.
- Pedro Martinez believes that Rubby De La Rosa, one of the key pieces of the Red Sox's blockbuster trade with the Dodgers, has a chance to be "someone special", writes Rob Bradford of WEEI.com. De La Rosa is rebounding from Tommy John surgery and will see his innings capped in 2013.
- Steve Melewski of MASNsports.com wonders if quality is more important than quantity when it comes to a team's farm system. The Orioles had just two players ranked in the Baseball America top 100 prospects list this year, with Dylan Bundy at No. 2 and Kevin Gausman at No. 26. Manny Machado also would have been towards the very top of the list had he qualified for rookie status.
- Orioles reliever Darren O'Day told the local press, including CSNBaltimore.com (video link) that he is especially happy to have a contract extension with the club given the way that he has bounced around in the past. O'Day inked a two-year extension with a club option for 2015.
