It’s Tuesday morning and the good news is that the Yankees have been relatively healthy for the past few– you know what? I should know better. Every time I do that something catastrophic happens.
Michael Pineda threw a 35-pitch bullpen session this morning and came out of it alive. Another pitcher coming back from injury is Phil Hughes and he threw a bullpen session yesterday and also came out alive.
CC Sabathia is scheduled to throw a bullpen session today and will throw in his first live game on Friday.
Boone Logan threw a bullpen session this weekend with no issues. He had a balky elbow.
Man, the Yankees really do have a lot of injuries. It’s a little crazy.
Ivan Nova is making the start on the road for the Yankees this afternoon. The weather is a little iffy down in central Florida today but reports are saying that the Yankees and Rays should be able to get the game in.
Here’s today’s lineup:
Eduardo Nunez SS
Jayson Nix 3B
Travis Hafner DH
Juan Rivera 1B
Francisco Cervelli C
Melky Mesa CF
Thomas Neal LF
Zoilo Almonte RF
Corban Joseph 2B
That’s a “the Yankees are playing on the road in the Spring” type of a lineup.
Have a good day, everyone.
