Updates From Yankees Camp, Day 21

The Yankees defeated the Atlanta Braves once again today by the final score of 8-3 today at George Steinbrenner field. Michael Pineda made his second spring start for the Yankees and in his 2.2 IP he allowed one run on four hits and three walks. His velocity was still sitting in the low 90's but it did touch 93 and 94 mph. When asked about it after the game Pineda said that he was not trying to throw hard hence why his velocity is down. He says that he will throw harder and harder every time out there. I wonder if the walks are because he was trying something new, namely with the changeup.

Mark Teixeira and Raul Ibanez both had rbi singles in the first inning off of Jair Jurrjens, who struggled with his control all day with six walks and five hits in 2.1 IP. Alex Rodriguez had an rbi double with two outs in the second inning to extend the Yankees lead that they would never give up.
