Chad Green made his first start of the spring and allowed a solo homer to Russell Martin in 1.2 innings before hitting his pitch limit. David Hale (two runs in one inning), J.P. Feyereisen (two runs in one inning), and Josh Rogers (two runs in 1.1 innings) all had trouble on the mound. I’ll set the over/under on their combined innings total for the Yankees this season at 9.5. Here is the box score and here are the rest of the day’s notes from Tampa:
- The upcoming rotation: Luis Cessa (Wednesday), CC Sabathia (Thursday), and Masahiro Tanaka (Friday). Luis Severino will make his first spring start in the coming days as well. Sabathia, Dillon Tate, and Jordan Montgomery threw bullpen sessions today. [Brendan Kuty]
- Aaron Judge is still scheduled to make his spring debut tomorrow. “(It’s) just about trusting (the shoulder) and trusting how it feels, and making sure I continue to build up my strength. It’s about making sure it’s pain-free when I wake up each morning,” he said. Judge will DH tomorrow, rest Thursday, then play right field Friday. [Coley Harvey, Erik Boland]
- Without being asked, Russell Wilson gave a speech at camp yesterday. “He just talked about some of his principles, his leadership things that he talks about,” said Boone. Brian Cashman said he’s not opposed to giving Wilson an at-bat at some point, though they’ll talk it over with Seahawks first. [Kuty, Randy Miller, Pete Caldera]
Here is tonight’s open thread. MLB Network is replaying a spring game tonight and both the Devils and Nets are playing. Talk about those games or anything else here, as long as it’s not religion or politics.
