Here what’s happening today:
- Brian McCann is working on ways to beat the shift. Too bad he can’t do what Mark Teixeira has been doing so far: Going the opposite way.
- CC Sabathia is confident in himself and in the Yankees. Well, good, at least someone is.
- Joe Girardi is trying to keep his veterans healthy by resting them a little more.
- Slate Heathcott won the James P. Dawson Award as the top rookie in camp. He finished the Spring .355/.459/.581 with three stolen bases and seven RBI.
- Ivan Nova is alive and pitching again. He threw a 45-pitch bullpen session and came out of it unscathed.
- The Yankees are in Washington, D.C.to face the Nationals in their last non-regular season game for a long time. Thank goodness! The game can be seen on YES and MLB Network starting at 1 p.m.
