Top stories from last week:
- The Yankees insist there is an open competition for the fifth starter’s spot. We’ll see. Ivan Nova, who is competing for that job, is using a slightly new delivery this spring.
- Injury Updates: Jacoby Ellsbury (wrist) was hit by a pitch and will miss at least a few days. X-rays and a CT scan came back negative. Brett Gardner (wrist) has started playing in games. Brian McCann (knee) missed a few days after being hit by a foul tip, but he’s returned to the lineup. Aaron Hicks (stye) missed only a day. That’s all.
- Ben Gamel and Vicente Campos were among the most recent round of roster cuts. There are still 45 players in big league spring training.
- The Braves returned Rule 5 Draft pick Evan Rutckyj. The Yankees have no plans to put Cito Culver on the mound.
