After 2 losses on Saturday, the Yankees bounced back to win both their split squad games on Sunday.
- Masahiro Tanaka got the start in Tampa and he was very good again. Went 4.1 innings, gave up a single run on 3 hits and his first 2 ST walks, and struck out 6. Reports make it sound like he was throwing his offspeed stuff more than his fastball.
- In Panama, CC Sabathia was stellar in his 5 innings of work against the Marlins. No runs, no hits, no walks, 5 Ks. The big guy's velocity was still 88-89 tops, but his command was much better and he was hitting his spots.
- Ivan Nova, David Phelps, and Michael Pineda all threw bullpens.
- Tyler Austin took live BP and is on track to get into a game this week. Brendan Ryan took swings and fielded grounders. Still no exact timetable for his return to game action.
- Manny Banuelos was the latest roster cut, and he could start lower than Triple-A to spend more time shaking the rust off. 58 players left in camp.
