Spring Training News And Notes: 3/15/14

It was day 1 of the 2-day split squad series in Panama yesterday, and it didn't get off to the start the Yanks were hoping for as they lost both games.

- Back in the states, the Yanks fell 2-1 to the Orioles.  Vidal Nuno threw 4 scoreless innings with 3 Ks, allowing just 1 hit and 1 walk.  Brian Roberts went 2-3 against his former team.

- In the Panama nightcap, the Yankees were actually no-hit by the Marlins in a 5-0 loss.  Adam Warren was pretty good (4.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K) but got no help.  The group of MLB regulars in the starting lineup went a combined 0-14 with 6 Ks and 1 BB.

- Larry Rothschild indicated that Masahiro Tanaka may start the 4th game of the regular season as a way to give him an extra day of rest.  Tanaka makes his latest ST start today.

- Eduardo Nunez is fine after getting spiked in Friday's game.  Russ Canzler has been getting treatment for some hip stiffness.
