Previewing the American League.
A team-by-team look at the American League entering spring training, including key players each club acquired and lost, and dates of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, and the full squad:
The Seattle Mariners agreed to trade right-hander Michael Pineda to the New York Yankees for catcher Jesus Montero on Friday, a swap involving two of baseball's top young talents.
Joe Maddon went to bed thinking CC Sabathia would start the opener of Wednesday's day-night doubleheader against the New York Yankees because of Phil Hughes' back spasm.
As the final out fell into Curtis Granderson's glove, the Yankees walked calmly to the mound to congratulate Mariano Rivera.
Short on relief pitching for their series opener against the Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees recalled right-hander Hector Noesi from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre of the International League.
