New York Yankees Spring Training News & Notes 3/18

Brendan Ryan's sore back and Scott Sizemore's tight right quad allowed both players to take outside batting practice. Both could be in a game as early as tomorrow.

David Phelps threw a side session today to get ready for his start on Thursday. CC Sabathia threw a bullpen session getting ready for his start on Friday. Masahiro Tanaka threw a bullpen session also to get ready for his start on Saturday against the Minnesota Twins.

Chase Whitley was cut from Yankees camp today so they could stretch him out in the minor leagues as a starting pitcher. Whitley excelled in the role late last season so it could be helpful for both Whitley and the Yankees.

Jacoby Ellsbury will not make the road trip tomorrow and is unlikely to play against the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night after feeling a little tight in his right calf. Joe Girardi wants to give Ellsbury all the time he needs to get healthy for when the games count and I can't blame him for that.
