Spring Training News And Notes: 2/19/14

The remaining position players who hadn't showed up yet were scheduled to report to camp yesterday.  First full-team workout will be today.  Here's yesterday's highlights:

- Manny Banuelos threw live BP at the MiL complex.  First time he's pitched to live hitters since some sim games late last season.

- Eduardo Nunez took a bunch of grounders from Mick Kelleher at short and third.

- The big news of the day obviously happened off the field, when Derek Jeter talked to the media about his decision to make the 2014 season his final one.  Had the deets on that earlier.

- Another positive injury update- Tyler Austin told reporters his right wrist is back to 100%.  He's been working mostly in right field but has also taken some grounders at third.

- The day's bullpen sessions: David Robertson, Matt Thornton, David Phelps, Jose Campos, Chris Leroux, and Yoshinori Tateyama.  Guess his visa issues are resolved.
