At the plate, the Yankees only had four hits on the day: a double by Chris Parmelee and singles by Aaron Hicks, Carlos Beltran, and Austin Romine. Jonathan Diaz drew the game’s only walk. Ronald Torreyes drove in the team’s only a run with a ground out to shortstop. Exciting stuff. Here’s the box score, here are the video highlights, and here are the day’s notes from Tampa:
- I’m not sure where or how this rumor started, but Severino is not hurt. There was chatter he left today’s game with the trainer and stuff like that. He’s fine though. No problems whatsoever. Step away from the ledge.
- Dustin Ackley, however, is hurt. He was scratched from today’s road trip with a tight quad. Hopefully it’s nothing serious and he returns in a few days. Ackley is the backup first and second baseman, so if he’s not ready for the start of the season, the Yankees would have to figure some things out. [Bryan Hoch]
- Both CC Sabathia and Michael Pineda will pitch in tomorrow afternoon’s game against the Phillies. That one will air on YES.
This is today’s open thread. This afternoon’s game will be replayed on MLB Network at 8pm ET, if you’re interested. There’s going to be several live Cactus League games on MLB.tv later tonight as well. The (hockey) Rangers are playing right now, the Devils play later tonight, and there’s a whole lotta college hoops on the schedule too. Have at it.
