New York Yankees Spring Training News & Notes 3/21

Brendan Ryan may not be ready for Opening Day due to upper back spasms, hello Dean Anna! Ryan went for tests on the back today and if he is not in a game by Tuesday it is highly unlikely he will break camp with the Yankees.

Adam Warren and Vidal Nuno pitched six innings each yesterday in minor league games. They are keeping their arms stretched out just in case but it looks like both are headed for the bullpen or AAA this season.

Russ Canzler is back in a game for the first time since his hip gave him issues after running into a rail. Canzler had an outside shot at making the team but now seems destined to be the everyday first basemen for the RailRiders.

Ivan Nova threw a bullpen sessions to Austin Romine. Michael Pineda threw a bullpen to Francisco Cervelli. Jim Miller threw a bullpen session to Jose Gil.

Jacoby Ellsbury hit on the field today and took outfield defensive drills, great news. Manager Joe Girardi says that Ellsbury could be in a game as early as Sunday, and if not then Tuesday.
