Top stories from last week:
- As the season draws closer, more and more players are being assigned to minor league camp. This week’s casualties: Jesus Montero, Austin Romine, Colin Curtis, Reid Gorecki, Dustin Moseley, Jason Hirsh, Romulo Sanchez, Ryan Pope, Ivan Nova, and Hector Noesi. The only moves left are small personnel shifts.
- The Yankees’ brass met yesterday to discuss the fifth starter situation after both Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain pitched well earlier this week. There’s a chance they’ll trade either Chad Gaudin or Sergio Mitre before Opening Day, and right now Mitre appears to be winning that battle. We’re not sure if he can succeed out of the bullpen, either.
- Damaso Marte took a line drive to the back, but he’s not expected to miss much time.
- The Yanks tried to acquire Denard Span last July, but to no avail. They offered Cuban shortstop Adeiny Hechevarria $8.5M before he signed with Toronto, and some think that Derek Jeter‘s presence cost them the 20-year-old.
- Single game tickets are now on sale.
