Spring Training News And Notes: 2/21/14

(Courtesy of the AP)

- The top 4 in the rotation all threw live BP yesterday and once again Masahiro Tanaka was the talk of the town, both by Austin Romine (who couldn't hit his splitter) and Brian McCann (who caught it).

- Joe announced that he won't  hold Tanaka out against AL East opponents once ST games start, and he also said he'd announce the early spring game starters tomorrow.

- Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury both worked on their bunting with Rob Thomson.  Romine made some waves with an impressive BP session.

- Slade Heathcott won't play in any early spring games and he may not be ready at any point in ST as he works his way back from knee surgery.

- Bullpens of the day: David Herndon, Yoshinori Tateyama, Jose Campos.
