- Joe Girardi said all of the expected regulars will be in tomorrow’s lineup except Jacoby Ellsbury, who reported to camp late because his wife gave birth to their second child. I assume “expected regulars” means Greg Bird at first and Aaron Judge in right? We’ll see. [Bryan Hoch]
- Bryan Hoch has the day’s pitching assignments, hitting groups, and fielding groups. Masahiro Tanaka, Dellin Betances, and Chad Green were among those to throw simulated games. Tanaka threw 74 total pitches. That seems like a lot for February 23rd, but who knows. [AP]
- Like Derek Jeter earlier this week, Alex Rodriguez is taking a bunch of prospects out to dinner tonight. He’s extending his first stint as a guest instructor and could remain with the team through Saturday. [Brendan Kuty, David Lennon]
Here is tonight’s open thread. The Knicks, Rangers, and Islanders are all playing tonight, and there are some college basketball games on as well. Talk about those games or anything else here, as long as it’s not politics or religion. Thanks.
