Spring Training Day 12

No news is good news? The Yankees really did not do anything today as far as conditioning drills, bullpen sessions, etc. Instead they rested and prepared for their exhibition game tomorrow against South Florida and preparing for their bonding event. Adam Warren is slated to get the start tomorrow against the university with a bullpen behind him consisting of  Brett Marshall, Dan Burawa, Juan Cedeno, Graham Stoneburner, Ryan Pope, and Kevin Whelan. The regular lineup will be batting behind this pitching barrage but only expect them to get an at bat or two each before the bench players and invites start getting time. Cano will not be in the lineup tomorrow or Saturday because he has been out due to his grandmothers funeral. Girardi expects him in his first game on Sunday.

George Kontos expects to throw for the first time tomorrow since he was set back with an oblique injury. All eyes will be on him since this is probably his last chance as a Yankee since he is on the 40 man roster, 27 years old, and not performing the way the Yankees would have hoped. I know he is not a Yankee anymore but AJ Burnett has broken his right orbital bone and will have surgery on Friday. He broke the bone when he was bunting and fouled a pitch off of his face. No word yet on how long he will be out for. Add Manny Delcarmen to the Yankees injured players this spring as he hurt his lat and is expected to miss four to five days with that. That is a huge setback for a guy that was a long shot to make the team anyway.

Tomorrow we finally have baseball, in whatever shape or form we can get it in. I , for one, am excited to see my team back on the field. Go Yankees!
