Yankees Spring Training News & Notes For 2/21

The New York Yankees held their first full team workout today in spring training a day after all positional players joined the pitchers and catchers for Spring Training camps.

Adam Warren and Vidal Nuno threw live batting practice down at the Yankees minor league complex while Michael Pineda threw an early bullpen session.  Warren threw to catcher Jose Gil while Nuno threw to Francisco Arcia. Pineda threw to young Yankees catcher Peter O'Brien.

Corban Joseph took live batting practice today for the first time since a shoulder injury robbed him of his 2013 season. Joseph has been in Tampa since January finishing his rehab after playing through that shoulder pain for quite some time, maybe even before last season.

Derek Jeter took ground balls today with Brian Roberts. That could, if healthy, be a great middle of the infield and double play duo we have.

Alfonso Soriano is the first Yankee to miss time this season, it was just flu like symptoms though so don't worry. Soriano did not dress today but is expected to be back with the team tomorrow.
