- The first day of Spring Training is mostly just showing up and taking physicals, though CC Sabathia, Justus Sheffield, Dillon Tate, and Chance Adams were among those who threw bullpen sessions today. [Erik Boland, Brendan Kuty]
- Aaron Judge is working out alongside pitchers and catchers at George M. Steinbrenner Field. The rest of the position players are stuck working out at the minor league complex until reporting day Sunday. Judge gets to work out on the main field because he is a considered a rehabbing player following shoulder surgery. [Sweeny Murti]
- Ron Guidry, Reggie Jackson, Tino Martinez, Hideki Matsui, Lee Mazzilli, Stump Merrill, Willie Randolph, Alfonso Soriano, Nick Swisher, Mark Teixeira, and Bernie Williams will all be in camp as guest instructors at some point. Goose Gossage will not. The Yankees didn’t invite him because he’s too much of a distraction, as yesterday’s rant shows. [Jack Curry, Murti]
- And finally, if you’re interested in such things, uniform numbers have been posted for 40-man roster players and non-roster invitees. Nos. 13, 21, and 25 still haven’t been reissued.
This is the open thread for the evening. The three local hockey teams are playing, there’s a bunch of college basketball on the schedule, and the Olympics are going on. Talk about those games, the first day of Spring Training, and anything else here as long as it’s not religion or politics. Get that outta here.
