Top stories from last week:
- The west coast trip continued last week with a visit to Oakland, which Bartolo Colon started with a complete game shutout. A blowout win followed the next day, and Nick Swisher helped finish off the sweep on Wednesday.
- An off day on Thursday was followed by a loss to the Angels on Friday, though CC Sabathia righted the ship with a win the next day. The road trip came to an end with a win yesterday
- Injury News: Phil Hughes started throwing off a mound last week, first throwing a bullpen session then live batting practice. The next step could be a trip to Extended Spring Training to get stretched out. Carlos Silva has a stiff shoulder and Austin Romine has a sore back and neck following a collision at the plate.
- Silva’s minor league contract, by the way, does not have an opt-out clause.
- Top prospect Gary Sanchez was sent to ExST because of “attitude problems.”
