Spring Training Day 19

The Yankees played the Toronto Blue Jays in Grapefruit League play today and the Yankees endured another loss today, 6-1 being the final score. Ivan Nova started today and while his fastball hit 95 mph at times his command, much like his last start, was (to not equivocate) terrible. Colin Curtis hit a home run for the only Yankees run and rbi, Ramiro Pena had 2 hits, Gardner, Texeira and a few others all had one hit a piece.

David Phelps let one of Nova's runs score on a passed ball and did not look sharp at all, unlike his last outing against the Phillies. in 2.1 IP he allowed one hit, two walks, and a strike out to go with that passed ball. David is not making the team out of spring training so no big deal for him.

Cesar Cabral, a rule 5 draft pick and one of the many fighting for the last bullpen spot, has not had a good spring to speak of. We signed him to possibly be our LOOGY and get left handed batters out but today Travis Snider, a lefty obviously, took him deep and another lefty, Eric Thames, singled off him. Not a good start in a very tough competition.
