2016 Previews: The American League East in a nutshell

Associated Press

For the past few weeks we’ve been previewing the 2016 season. Here, in handy one-stop-shopping form, is our package of previews from the American League East.

The Sox have a ton of young horses and a new ace, the Jays have the big boppers, the Yankees have a killer bullpen, the Orioles have guys who will hit A LOT of homers but strikeout a ton too and the Rays, while talented, have another year of trying to do the most with less. None of these teams stink. The A.L. East may be the toughest division in baseball.

Here are our previews for each of the combatants in this Thunderdome of a division:
