The Yankees' 2016 spring opener is less than 2 days away and already there are some injury notes piling up. Here's the latest: - Brett Gardner did 2 consecutive days of light hitting drills over the weekend and got some light work in today, so the team continues to take it slow with him. Sounds like he's going to take live batting practice in the cage on Wednesday after the scheduled team off-day tomorrow.
- Nathan Eovaldi felt some "minor tightness" in his left groin during running drills late last week. The team scrapped his planned live BP session over the weekend, but he's participated in some drills and is scheduled to throw a bullpen on Wednesday. Sounds like this is nothing more than early spring precautions, but I'm sure the team will have a close eye on him during that bullpen sesh.
- Chasen Shreve took a line drive in the back throwing BP today, the second straight day that has happened after Ivan Nova took one off the leg on Sunday. Shreve is OK, but that ended his session a little early. Put a little ice on it and he should be fine.
