New York already has a deep bullpen. But it might get any deeper.

The Yankees acquired Aroldis Chapman, which pushes Andrew Miller into a setup role while giving the club depth.

Although the bullpen appears to be set, the Yankees are still considering adding a veteran reliever.

More from around the American League East:

  • There are plenty of big name Red Sox prospects. However, Trey Ball and Travis Lakins are among the ones who need to have big 2016 campaigns for Boston.
  • Will Boston and New York matchup well with each other this season? There is certainly a good chance, Over the Monster's Joon Lee suggests.
  • Tampa Bay's lineup, for the most part, is set. But there is still some uncertainty with regard to the catching position.
  • Baltimore is among the clubs considering trading for James Shields.
  • Dexter Fowler could have earned $23 million more by accepting Baltimore's offer, according to MLB Network Insider Jon Heyman.
  • Ivan Nova and CC Sabathia are battling for the final spot in the Yankees' rotation, according to ESPN's Andrew Marchand.
