It’s Day 2 of Spring Training and today marks the first day of pitchers and catchers workouts. The players are going to keep it pretty simple today.
CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, Masahiro Tanaka and Ivan Nova are slated to throw full bullpen sessions. And if you’re hoping on an update on Manny Banuelos, I have one. Banuelos is scheduled to throw to live hitters on Wednesday. He threw in simulated games last September in Tampa and had a pretty normal offseason. He feels nothing in his elbow, which is good news for the Yankees. I believe Banuelos is the one every Yankee fan should have their eyes on as camp continues.
A little tidbit
– I forgot to mention this yesterday and I found it quite interesting: Joe Girardi jumped off his roof on Thursday. No, it wasn’t because he heard Derek Jeter‘s retirement news; it was because he had a snowed in balcony. He was in one piece when he arrived in Tampa yesterday so I’m guessing it went well.
