New York Yankees Spring Training Notes 2/20

The Yankees ran pop up drills today and we saw Curtis Granderson in center field and Brett Gardner in left field. Whether that is a sign of things to come or not I do not know but I would think if they were going to make the move that they would want Curtis Granderson to get acclimated as soon as possible. Then again I do not have access to the binder so what do I know.

Phil Hughes will miss up to two weeks with a bulging disc in his back after hurting it on a fielding practice drill. Mark Montgomery's back feels a lot better after he did a long toss session today. He will play catch again tomorrow and if all goes well we will see Mark throw a bullpen session on Friday or Saturday.

Kevin Youkilis, unsurprisingly, did not take batting practice off of Joba Chamberlain today. Apparently Joe Girardi has no sense of humor. It may have been a blessing in disguise though because Joba let one fly and almost hit Eduardo Nunez in the head with a pitch that got away. Could you imagine if Youk was in the batting box for that unintentional pitch?

David Adams says his back feels great and could be on the field with the rest of the club as early as Monday. David has yet to report to camp because of a back injury in a non baseball related incident. He would not be fully cleared by doctors until he works out a few times and does some routine drills but he seems to be on his way back regardless which is great news.
