The New York Yankees have been pretty busy so far this offseason, and the moves they've made have resulted in new roles for several players on the roster.
Not every player will be benefiting from these new roles, however.
Spring training will bring clarity to a few of these situations, but that's a long time to wait before knowing the definitive roles of these players. Of course, they could be resolved with corresponding moves later this offseason.
For that, we'll just have to sit and wait.
The Yankees seem determined to make the big moves this offseason to get back to the playoffs, and that will leave several role players displaced. Because general manager Brian Cashman is committed to making improvements, expect middling reserves to have different responsibilities in 2014.
