New York Yankees Spring Training News & Notes 3/12

Brendan Ryan took some light swings after suffering an oblique injury last week and feels no ill effects from the activity. Ryan says the injury is more in his lower back than his oblique so maybe this will not be a lingering kind of injury.

Tyler Austin is hitting flips in the batting cage, which is basically a modified version of tee and toss. His right wrist feels good and has no lingering soreness.

Jose Campos made his spring debut for the Yankees today pitching in the 7-7 tie.

Dellin Betances threw a simulated game today to Peter O'Brien and faced Jose Pirela and Francisco Arcia.

Francisco Cervelli hit two more home runs today and is batting an even .500 for the spring while leading the team in slugging percentage. Cervelli is being scouted by other teams and is said to be readily available for the right price.

Dean Anna has a stiff neck, not great news for him. Dino needs to be in every game and every inning he can if he wants to win a spot on the team and cannot afford to miss any time. Anna is still expected to make the trip to Panama though so that's great news.

Another day and another hit for Yangervis Solarte, he also walked once in the game as well. Pretty soon we have to stop reminding you that it's early in spring and start recognizing that this guy is killing the ball.
