3/13 Camp Notes: Nunez, Pitching, BernieBy
The Yankees and Red Sox are playing a nationally televised night game in a little while, so we’ll have a regular game thread up when the time comes. Until then, here are the day’s notes from Tampa…
- Eduardo Nunez was originally in tonight’s lineup, but he felt pain in his right hand during batting practice and has been scratched. He hasn’t played since getting hit by a pitch last Monday. Bill Hall’s chances of making the team get that much better. [Mark Feinsand]
- Michael Pineda, Phil Hughes, CC Sabathia, and some minor leaguers/non-roster guys threw their scheduled side sessions while George Kontos threw live batting practice. It was his first time facing hitters in camp after being shelved by an oblique problem for a few weeks. [Chad Jennings]
- Bernie Williams arrived in camp and will hang around as a guest instructor for a few days. [Pete Caldera]
And finally, the Yankees have announced that the Mastercard pre-sale of individual game tickets will be from March 22nd-25th. General sale begins the 27th.
