- The Yanks won an unbroadcasted night game 3-2 last night behind 2.2 innings of 1-hit, shutout ball from Hiroki Kuroda. He also struck out 5. Derek Jeter went 2-2 with a BB and Carlos Beltran hit his 2nd HR of the spring.
- The real story was Michael Pineda, who made his first game appearance since ST 2012. He pitched 2 innings, gave up 1 hit, no runs or walks, and struck out 4, including Miguel Cabrera. His fastball was sitting low 90s and his slider was really sharp according to Brian McCann. About as good a first appearance as you could ask for.
- Brendan Ryan has an oblique injury and is going to be shut down for about a week. Jose Ramirez is still recovering from his with no timetable for his return.
- In happier injury news, Slade Heathcott is scheduled to take live BP today for the first time.
- Yesterday's notable pitching sessions: Adam Warren and Matt Daley (bullpens), Vidal Nuno and Bryan Mitchell (BP).
