Top stories from last week:
- The Yankees swooped in to sign free agent slugger Adam Lind to a minor league contract. That is probably bad news for Tyler Austin. Lind could land on the bench as the backup first baseman.
- Injury Updates: Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) has a mild strain and there is no timetable for his return. Clint Frazier (concussion) remains shut down. David Robertson (illness) will return to the mound in the coming days. Albert Abreu (appendix) has started throwing.
- Ellsbury is going to play some left field this spring, or at least he was before he got hurt. Domingo Acevedo is healthy, though he has yet to appear in a game because the Yankees are trying to build his arm strength.
- The Yankees could use a spot sixth starter early in the season as a way to give their regular starters extra rest. They’ll play 18 games in 18 days starting April 19th.
