The New York Yankees have some important roster choices to make by today's deadline to make changes to their 40-man roster before December's Rule 5 Draft, with any prospect added to the roster protected from potential selection. 

The Yankees have a slew of players to consider this season, some of whom are considered among their top-30 prospects.

As of Friday, the Yankees' 40-man roster stands at 39, so if they add more than one player, they'll need to determine which players they will let go in order to make room for any more additions. Some of these decisions should be easy for the organization.

After finishing the season with an 84-78 record, good for fourth place in the American League East, the New York Yankees can look at their pitching staff as a facet that excelled at various points in the season, but had holes throughout.RotationMasahiro Tanaka earns ace money, and in 2016 he pitched like he deserved it. The 27-year-old right-hander hurled a career-high 199 2/3 innings, generating a 3.07 earned run average (3.51 FIP). The ERA was good for third-best in the American League. Tanaka went 14-4 for the Yankees, and the team was 23-8 in his starts. He stopped losing streaks and kept winning streaks going. Tanaka is the unquestioned ace of this staff.
