Spring Training Day Three News & Notes

Mark Teixeira and his wrist have arrived in Spring Training camp and soaking up most of the attention this morning. Teix gave multiple interviews and gave everyone a status update on his wrist and his expectations for both the spring and this coming season. Nothing really news worthy, nothing we haven't already heard before. On to a few news and notes for this slow Sunday morning.

David Robertson, Shawn Kelley, and Matt Thornton took their turn in their first bullpen sessions of the spring. Matt Daley will also be there but he is unlikely to make the team out of the spring unless he really gets some help and pitches his butt off.

Live batting practice starts tomorrow for most, David Phelps and Adam Warren are already throwing to hitters, with Vidal Nuno, Dellin Betances, and Chase Whitley scheduled to throw to batters. No word on whether it will be the catchers that will take turn hitting or if it will be someone else but either way live batting practice is something.

Speaking of Dellin, Betances was in the Dominican Republic in January working out for three weeks getting ready for the season with the same "pitching guru" that helped out with Joel Peralta and a few others. Betances has been down in Tampa since the beginning of February getting ready for the 2014 season.
