3/22 Camp Notes: Phelps, Warren, Pettitte

And the drum beats on: Michael Pineda, velocity, and AAA
ST Game Thread: Fenway South

The Yankees are playing the Red Sox in brand spankin’ new JetBlue Park tonight, so we’ll have a game thread a little later on. Here are the day’s camp notes for the time being…

  • Adam Warren will start against the Sox tonight instead of David Phelps, who is away from the team because his wife is giving birth. Congrats to them. Phelps is scheduled to go on the road to face the Phillies tomorrow, but he probably won’t make the trip. [Chad Jennings & Bryan Hoch]
  • As expected, Andy Pettitte‘s legs were a bit sluggish yesterday following his 50-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday. He had to back off his regular workouts a bit but is still scheduled to throw live batting practice tomorrow. The hope is that he’ll appear in one of the final two Spring Training games. [Kevin Kernan, Dan Martin & Erik Boland]
  • Nick Swisher (groin) said he feels “pretty decent” but won’t play for a few days. Derek Jeter (calf) is on track to play tomorrow but still must go through a full set of on-field workouts. Freddy Garcia (hand) will start Saturday after getting hit by a comebacker last week. He’s scheduled for 50-65 pitches. [Jennings]
  • Rather than face the division rival tonight, CC Sabathia started against a bunch of Yankees’ Double-A players on a side field today. He allowed one run in six innings. [Jennings & YankeesPR]
And the drum beats on: Michael Pineda, velocity, and AAA

    Sure am glad they hid Sabathia from the sox today. Now they’ll never expect it when he whips out the gyroball against them in the regular season.

  • your mom

    WTH? CC gave up a run to AA hitters? What’s wrong with our pitchers? First, Pineda comes to camp fat and throwing high 80’s heat, then Nova gets shelled, somehow Robertson injuries his foot, prior to all this we trade our ace AJ, Joba had TJS, now Phelps misses significant time because his wife decides to give birth and of course Feliciano may not pitch at all this year. For shame!!!!!

    • Dale Mohorcic

      Somehow that sounds exactly like Wallace Matthews.

      Your sarcasm is lame. Its all good in Yankee land
