The New York Yankees entered the 2014 spring training schedule with several important tasks.

First, they needed to introduce several new players to the Yankees culture.

Helping injured players return to form and shake off some rust would also be important.

But what is of the utmost importance is seeing which players can win the remaining position battles and which young players can earn a spot on the Opening Day roster while turning heads.

Through a little over a week into camp, the Yankees are 5-4. Despite the average record, they have had a successful start in player development.

Several players have overachieved early on, and many have played as expected, even if those expectations were extremely high.

With less than a month until the start of the regular season, these are the guys that are turning heads so far.
