As with most professional baseball teams, the Yankees roster is going to be different heading into the 2013 season.
Contracts, age and opt-out clauses are generally the main culprits of changing the make up of any roster.
In New York, this offseason could be one of major change.
Numerous players were in the final year of their contracts, including Ichiro Suzuki, Nick Swisher and Hiroki Kuroda, most notably.
With the rumor mill working constantly to spread the latest news and possible moves, what Brian Cashman and the New York front office will do this winter isn’t exactly clear.
What you can be sure of though is not seeing these players in pinstripes next season.
