Yesterday, after throwing his first bullpen session of the spring, Mariano Rivera, a timeless fixture in the Yankees bullpen, discussed a topic which he rarely needs to address—his own fragility. The 40-year old Rivera underwent surgery prior to the 2009 season in order to remove a bothersome calcification from his right shoulder. When asked [...]
According to the Star-Ledger‘s Marc Carig, right-hander, A.J. Burnett, is refining his changeup this spring and hopes to overcome a fear he has of getting beat by the pitch in order to employ it more often in 2010. “I think it’s a big key,” noted Burnett when discussing the pitch, which he used [...]
Today in Tampa, Derek Jeter met with the media to discuss the new year and, of course, his looming free agency was the dominant topic of conversation. As was expected, Jeter brushed the issue off as a possible distraction and affirmed his desire to be a Yankee for the duration of his already [...]
Not sure if this was reported as a standalone item anywhere, but Erik Boland of Newsday informs us that manager, Joe Girardi, has announced that Jorge Posada will catch A.J. Burnett this season.

In the last few weeks, the Yankees have been connected to a lot of outfielders. They signed one, Randy Winn, to a Major League deal and he will be the team’s fourth outfielder. Right now, Rule V Draft pick Jamie Hoffmann is the fifth outfielder the Yankees are going to give him at least Spring [...]
CC Sabathia struggled today, lasting only 1.2 innings against the Tigers, giving up 5 runs and 6 hits (one of those was a big fly to former Yankee, Gary Sheffield). CC attributed the rough day to a “lack of feel” for his cut fastball, as he had trouble locating it during the outing. [...]
The Yankees sent Kanekoa Teixeira, J.B. Cox, and George Kontos to their minor league camp today, and exercised their option on Andrew Brackman by sending him to Single-A Charleston. This is the first round of many cuts that the Yankees will make this spring. You’d like to see Cox, Teixeira, and Kontos stick around for [...]
Here’s a quick rundown of some notable news items:
1. The Yankee offense clicked today, plating 11 runs against Cincinnati pitching. Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez all had big days, yet somehow, the Yankees still managed to lose the game by 2 runs.
