The New York Yankees remain a team in flux, heading into spring training with a roster that could contend—or fall short of the playoffs for the fourth time in the past five years.

Veterans like Brian McCann (traded) and Mark Teixeira (retired) are gone, replaced by youngsters who are big on upside—but light on experience. That could lead to some growing pains in 2017, but it's a pain that general manager Brian Cashman believes fans are ready to endure.

"(The fans are) willing to walk through that (the ups and downs) with you as long as they have some legitimate players they can really grow with," he recently told Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News. "We're really now in a better position to provide a group of talent where hopefully some will really be part of the next championship core."

Some of those players will be competing for a spot on the 25-man roster this spring. Others still need more minor league seasoning before they can officially join the fray. How will things shake out when it's said and done?

Let's take a look.
