Open Thread: March 14th Camp Notes

Hicks, Romine and the rest of the part-timers [2017 Season Preview]
Plate discipline is Dustin Fowler's biggest weakness, and he's working on it this spring

The Yankees were back in action this afternoon and they lost to the Rays. Bummer. The good news: Gary Sanchez homered, Greg Bird had a double and a triple, and Gleyber Torres had a double and a home run. They are good at baseball. Also, Mason Williams started in center field and went 0-for-2. It was his Grapefruit League debut. He’d be shelved by patella inflammation the last few weeks.

Luis Severino started and allowed one run on two hits and a walk in three innings. He fanned four and allowed a solo homer to Rickie Weeks, who is still playing, apparently. Johnny Barbato and Dietrich Enns let the game get out of hand in the middle innings. They combined to allow eight runs while recording four outs. Here are the box score and video highlights, and here are the notes from Tampa:

This is the open thread for tonight. MLB Network will have live WBC games at 9pm ET (Dominican Republic vs. Puerto Rico), 12am ET (Netherlands vs. Cuba), and 6am ET (Israel vs. Japan). The Knicks, Nets, and Islanders are all playing too. You know how these things work by now, so have at it.
