New York Yankees Spring Training News & Notes 3/6

Manny Banuelos is expected to pitch one inning on Saturday, awesome. This will be the first time he faced live hitters since his 2012 Tommy John surgery.

Tyler Austin hit off a tee as he is getting eased back into baseball activities after a sore wrist stopped his spring training.

There will be more later as today's game with the Phillies just ended recently so check back for that.

  1. This isn't really relevant to this post, but for some reason tomorrow night's game isn't being televised or broadcasted on any kind of radio station? That's just weird. It's a home night game

    1. Found that odd as well. Playing a good team also in the Detroit Tigers... and it's a Friday night so the viewership should be there.... Not even MLB TV has it I dont think.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
