Morning Bits: Adams, Pineda, Cano, Wang, Cervelli, Nova, and Hughes


Position players have reported. Next is spring training games and then the season.

• 2B David Adams not ready to start Spring Training with back injury.

• Michael Pineda, out until June or July, has lost 20 pounds.

• The Yankees and Robinson Cano are far apart on a contract extension.

• The Yankees are keeping tabs on Chien-Ming Wang during the WBC.

Francisco Cervelli will not play in the WBC.

Joe Girardi says that Ivan Nova still has to compete for a rotation spot.

• The Yankees did not talk extension with impending free agent Phil Hughes.

If Hughes and Cano have big years, they very well could price themselves out of the Bronx. A weird thought.
