Yankees Spring Training Open Thread 3/3

So what happened today at New York Yankees spring training camp?

Bryan Mitchell has come to spring training looking to earn a spot on the team's Opening Day roster and his first step towards that happened today in spring camp. Mitchell pitched two hitless innings against the Detroit Tigers and Justin Verlander and while he struggled with control a bit you have to let that go by the wayside at the beginning of March.

Kirby Yates and James Kaprielian also had hitless innings of relief while Luis Cessa pitched two innings of scoreless relief allowing just one hit. The Yankees pitching was on today.

Austin Romine continues to impress behind the plate defensively but unfortunately he continues to lack that little something while batting at the plate. Romine was 0-for-3 today but did manage to throw out Ian Kinsler trying to steal a base on his right arm.

The new protective netting that MLB made teams installed was tested today in the 7th inning when Slade Heathcott lost control of his bat. Instead of the bat entering the stands and potentially hurting a fan it simply hit the netting and fell to the floor. So far so good.

The Yankees lost to the Tigers 3-0.
