I hope to do this for every spring training game, or at least once every couple of days to track the progress of players through camp.
1) Brett Gardner- He showed some power, homering in the first at bat of the spring. If he can reach base at a decent clip and hit a few doubles, he will likely win the CF job. He got off to a nice start.
2) Alex Rodriguez- He has an immense amount of pressure on his shoulders, and hitting a home run in the first game was a nice sign that he is just going to just shut everything out and hit.
3) Brett Tomko- 2 innings, 1 hit is a rousing start for a guy who has a slim chance to win the long reliever slot. Dan Giese and Al Aceves are not locks for the roster, and more performances like this by Tomko will at worst put his name into the conversation.
1) Jose Veras- Jose was very wild, allowing the lone run of the day while walking two in the process. Being that the Yankees have plenty of options for the bullpen, Veras needs to show that the second half of last season was a fluke.
2) Shelley Duncan- Shelley entered last spring with a roster spot almost guaranteed. it seems that he is back to being a 4A player, and 0-3 with 2 K’s will not help his case.
3) Kevin Russo- Russo is probably going to be the first infielder called up should Cody Ransom falter. However, he did not help his stock by going 0-2 with a K and an error.
