Spring is here: First Yankees workout today
Yankees pitchers and catchers begin workouts this morning at George M. Steinbrenner Field. The guys will hit the field around 10:30 a.m. after a brief video meeting in the clubhouse.
Since there’s only pitchers and catchers here, the Yankees are generally limited on what they’ll be doing. Pitchers will pitch, catchers will catch, and catchers will hit a little before calling it a day. Rehabbing position players David Adams and Justin Maxwell are also here to do some hitting.
In the main bullpen, here’s who will be throwing early, followed by who’s catching them:
Phil Hughes (Jose Gil), Ivan Nova (Austin Romine), Michael Pineda (Russell Martin), Dave Robertson (Gustavo Molina), CC Sabathia (Francisco Cervelli).
And later today:
Freddy Garcia (J.R. Murphy), Hiroki Kuroda (Cervelli), Boone Logan (Kyle Higashioka), Cory Wade (Gary Sanchez).
Manny Banuelos (Martin), Dellin Betances (Higashioka), Cesar Cabral (Molina), D.J. Mitchell (Gil).
After being delayed for one day by travel troubles, Joe Girardi will meet the media following the workout. Mariano Rivera has arrived in camp, just one day behind schedule.
