Spring Training is only eight days away and the Yankees are already preparing for the 2017 season!
Masahiro Tanaka is expected to enter Major League camp on Monday (he’s already at minor league camp in Tampa) and is expected to throw a bullpen on Wednesday for the Yankees.
Tanaka isn’t the only Yankee currently at minor league camp: Adam Warren, Luis Cessa, Tyler Austin, Greg Bird, Michael Pineda, Luis Severino, Tyler Clippard and Tommy Layne have also arrived to camp early.
— Sergio Romo recently signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Now, why would that concern the Yankees? Well, because the Yankees were speaking to Romo’s representatives before he signed with the Dodgers. The Yankees never formally offered him a contract before the Dodgers pursued him, so if they’re looking for a bullpen piece, it’s not going to be Romo.
