- The Yanks won their ST opener 8-3 against Jameis Winston and Florida State yesterday. Highlights included 2 scoreless innings with 3 K from Vidal Nuno, a 2-2 day for John Ryan Murphy with 2 doubles, and a 2-2 day with a homer from Ramon Flores.
- Ivan Nova starts today's game, which will feature Brian McCann, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Carlos Beltran in the starting lineup. 3 Yankee debuts in 1 game. Nice.
- The rest of the team got a full morning workout in before the game. Shawn Kelley and David Robertson threw BP and Alfonso Soriano took some hacks. He should be back to full, regular activity today.
- Joe announced that CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, and Masahiro Tanaka would all be making their ST debuts in Saturday's game. Sabathia will start, Hirok and Tanaka will come out of the 'pen, all will start innings to simulate a real game situation. Eventually this will work into their regular ST rotation when the extra rest days kick in.
