3/8 – Yankees vs. Phillies; Yankees at Pirates

Split squad today, and that goes for too. While Bryan is at home doing his taxes, I’ll be at Steinbrenner Field following the Yankees and Phillies, so feel free to follow along on Twitter @AnthonyDiComo.

Half the club is down in Bradenton taking on the Pirates, but there’s plenty of news here in Tampa. For starters, Mariano Rivera threw some live BP today and called the session “delicious.” Joe Girardi says he’ll make his Grapefruit League debut March 17 against the Phillies — but that game’s on the road, and no one here is even sure if Rivera owns a pair of road gray pants. “We’ll figure it out,” Rivera said when asked.

Francisco Cervelli is heading to see a neurologist today, after reporting no symptoms from his concussion yesterday. “All good so far,” was how GM Brian Cashman put it, though the Yankees may remain cautious with Cervelli going forward.

Finally, Chan Ho Park was scratched from his live BP session due to some tightness in his glute. He should be good to go tomorrow.
