Andy Pettitte officially reported to Spring Training today and will meet with the media at 6pm ET to talk about whatever. The Yankees have a televised night game tonight, so here are the day’s camp notes a little early…

  • “That’s as good of a bullpen as I’ve caught all spring, from anyone,” said Russell Martin after catching Pettitte. He said he couldn’t tell that Pettitte had taken a year off, noting that his command and intensity were impressive. [Bryan Hoch & Erik Boland]
  • Freddy Garcia was among the pitchers scheduled to throw a bullpen session this afternoon. It’s his first time back on the mound since getting hit in the right hand by that comebacker last week. [Chad Jennings]
  • Derek Jeter (calf) is not in tonight’s lineup, meaning he’s unlikely to play until Friday. The Yankees have long road trips on Wednesday and Thursday, so he’ll rest until the next home game on Friday. Robinson Cano (hand), Nick Swisher (groin), and Martin (groin) are all playing tonight. [Jennings]
  • The Yankees optioned four to Triple-A earlier this afternoon.

    If really true probably more scary about the rest of the rotation than a positive on Andy
