- Not surprisingly, various Yankees didn’t have much to say about the Machado deal. “San Diego signed a really good player,” Aaron Boone said, which is way more than I expected seeing how Machado’s contract is not official yet. [Bryan Hoch]
- Aaron Judge held a standard start-of-spring press conference today and said his fractured right wrist is completely healed. “It’s 100%. It feels like it never even happened,” he said. He added he hasn’t heard anything about a possible contract extension. “I’m focused on the season,” he said. That doesn’t mean his agent isn’t focused on an extension, of course.

- Zack Britton was the only projected big league pitcher to throw live batting practice today. Trevor Stephan faced hitters as well and Clint Frazier took him deep. Here’s the video. Make sure you listen with your speakers up to hear that crack of the bat. [Bryan Hoch]
- If you’re curious, Brendan Kuty has the day’s batting practice groups. Don’t read anything into the groups. They don’t tell you who has a leg up on a roster spot or anything like that.
We’ve reached the dog days of Spring Training. Position players have arrived and full squad workouts are underway, but the first Grapefruit League game is still four days away. Ugh. Anyway, the first four spring games will be televised.
