New York Yankees Spring Training News & Notes 3/25

Jacoby Ellsbury played in a minor league game today and went 1-4 with a single, two walks, and a strike out. Jacoby was the DH but said the calf feels fine after the game. Jacoby expects to play tomorrow, possibly in a Major League game and will "no doubt" be ready for Opening Day in his words.

Joe Girardi has a tough bullpen competition decision ahead of him. These players showcased below are in addition to Dellin Betances, Shawn Kelley, David Robertson, and the three men that lost out on the fifth starter competition.

John Ryan Murphy has been sent down to AAA and has been assigned to minor league camp ending his backup catcher competition. Girardi has not announced that Cervelli is the backup, and Austin Romine is still in camp, but it's only a matter of time.

Yoshinori Tateyama: This spring: 7 IP, 0.86 WHIP, 10 K
Jim Miller: This spring: 7.2 IP, 0.78 WHIP, 4 K
Chris Leroux: This spring: 10.2 IP, 0.37 WHIP, 9 K
