Now on to the Yankees. As always, the great people at LoHud Blog have information about what happened at training camp today.
Among the things Chad Jennings wrote:
- Hal and George Steinbrenner were seen on separate occasions.
- No plans for postseason catchers this time…
- Who pitched today…
- The plans to keep the primary starters rested as much as possible through camp…
- A Yogi sighting today…
According to multiple media outlets on the Internet and Twitter, the first of which I saw from Tyler Kepner, Johnny Damon has signed an one-year $8 million contract, pending a physical.
Damon had little choice but to accept this offer after the White Sox took their offer off the table and there were basically no suitors left.
Rob Abruzzese at BBD has more.
One story that I enjoyed finding out about Yankee traditions is that Yogi Berra has his golf clubs shipped to Tampa. These clubs were at first stored in Joe Torre’s office. Now they’re in Joe Girardi’s office.
Guess who was at the camp today? None other than Yogi.
The Yanks had a bunch of bullpen sessions. Both Hughes and Chamberlain threw today. The aces of the team — Sabathia, Burnett, Pettitte, and Vazquez are all not pitching for a few days as to preserve their arm for a possible long season ahead of them.
Chad Jennings has photos and a summary of today’s workout. He reports that Pettitte feels good, even though he did the most innings since 2002, and Pettitte says it’s because the team was able to preserve the starters in September for the playoff run.
Enjoy the photos and the summary from Chad!
One of the perks of being a beat writer for the Yankees is that you get to follow the team around and get pretty good access to the players. Here are photos from the LoHud blog of the Yankee pitchers and catchers doing workouts during the first full day of spring training in Tampa.
Here’s a summary of what happened at training camp today, and a inside the clubhouse look, thanks to Chad Jennings at LoHud…
