American League East

Standard

* – indicates new to team

+ – indicates injury

1. New York Yankees

Armed with the deepest bullpen in baseball, they’ll look to unseat the defending champion Red Sox.

2. Boston Red Sox

Not having an established closer could put a damper on any talk of repeating as World Series champions.

3. Tampa Bay Rays

Their pitching depth knows no bounds, but they essentially hit the reset button on their lineup.

4. Toronto Blue Jays

The rebuild north of the border is in full swing. Lots of intriguing prospects will be making their debuts shortly.

5. Baltimore Orioles

A repeat of last years 115-loss season is all they have to look forward to.
