The Yankees don't have a true backup first baseman if Mark Teixeira were to get hurt, leaving Ike Davis as a very possible, low-cost option.
The New York Yankees may have lost in the Wild Card round last season, but this year they might be able to win it all. Here are five reasons why the Yankees can win the 2016 World Series.
Although he doesn't appear likely to begin the season in the major leagues at this point, Matt Boyd could serve as an important depth piece for the Detroit Tigers in 2016.
The Detroit Tigers improved their roster immensely through the winter, but they won't find it easy to surpass the defending World Series champs in 2016.
The New York Yankees have zero chill.
The New York Yankees still have needs, but for the final bench spot their solution might already be on the 40-man roster in Ronald Torreyes.
The San Francisco Giants have made plenty of moves this offseason, and those maneuvers have earned them a surprising grade thus far.
With Greg Bird missing the 2016 season due to an injury, the New York Yankees may need to get creative with their backup first baseman.
Dustin Ackley will be a capable backup at first base if Mark Teixeira gets hurt, which is almost guaranteed to happen.
Now that Greg Bird is out for the season with a torn labrum, the New York Yankees will have to amend their plans for 2016.
