The New York Yankees roster consists of a flurry of stars and a vast collection of bubble players who will need to fight during spring training to crack the final 25-man squad.
With depth in the middle infield, manager Joe Girardi will have to make some tough decisions throughout the spring. Each middle infielder offers similar versatility and skills at the plate, though it might come down to who performs best as camp closes and the regular season begins.
Relief pitching is the area where the most surprising cuts will come. With the retirement of Mariano Rivera and the departure of Boone Logan via free agency, several spots out of the bullpen are up for grabs.
The likes of David Robertson, Matt Thornton, Shawn Kelley and Preston Claiborne will have roles in some capacity. Robertson will be the closer, but the remaining spots have yet to be filled. They'll likely come from in-house candidates.
There will be some very competitive position battles in Tampa in the coming weeks. You're not going to want to miss them. Here are the odds for each Yankees player on the bubble of making the roster.
