Today's Yankees game against the Atlanta Braves has been rained out, so this is a perfect time to take an updated look at the position battles this spring.

The pitching continues to be a big focus, as Joba Chamberlain has struggled in his two appearances so far. Nick Johnson has come back from a brief injury and is performing well— as is Curtis Granderson. See their battle and the others at Double G Sports.

  1. Fifth starter battle: Chamberlain struggling big time, Hughes has been OK, but Aceves performing the best so far.
  2. No. 2 hitter battle: Johnson and Granderson battling it out.
  3. Bullpen: Robertson struggled a bit and Albaladejo has been nothing short of terrible.
