New York Yankees Spring Training Notes 2/22

The Yankees have announced that Francisco Cervelli will get the first shot at winning the starting catcher job as he will start in tomorrow's Grapefruit League opener with David Phelps on the mound. Cervelli is expected to catch four or five innings tomorrow.

Phil Hughes said his back is significantly better after resting it the past couple of days. Hughes is expected to do some pool exercises and work tomorrow while trying to get back to camp. We won't know truly how well he is progressing until he gets back on a mound but any progress is good.

Mariano Rivera threw live batting practice today for the first time since his ACL surgery last season and everything seems to have gone great. Apparently he threw cutters and everything so everything seems to be fine for Rivera.
