Spring Training News And Notes: 3/12/14

The Yanks were back in action yesterday afternoon and played to another tie, this time 7-7 to the Tigers.  Dodged another rainout and got everybody their ABs.  That's all that matters.

- Hiroki Kuroda was yesterday's starter and he was awful.  10 H and 6 ER allowed in 3.2 innings.  He was up in the zone with his stuff all day and got smacked around.  It happens.

- The offensive star was Francisco Cervelli, who hit 2 home runs in his 2 plate appearances.  He's now got 3 for the spring and leads the team in SLG.

- Jose Campos worked around a leadoff double to work a scoreless frame in his first ST appearance.  Fastball was 90-93.  Back at camp, Dellin Betances threw a sim game in the morning.

- Brendan Ryan's oblique is much better according to him, but Joe said he won't return to game action until next week.  Dean Anna apparently has a stiff neck after his collision with McCann on Tuesday.

- Tyler Austin has progressed to hitting soft toss in the cage.  Slade Heathcott, Nik Turley, and Gary Sanchez were all cut and assigned to MiL camp.
