  • Granderson scratched with right oblique strain
    By Joe Pawlikowski
    Via Bryan Hoch, Curtis Granderson will sit out today with a right oblique strain. They’re already calling it a strain, which is never a good sign. We will hear more information after the game, but at this point I think it’s safe to assume a DL trip.

    • ST Game 26

      Orioles 6 Yankees 2


      Sergio Mitre was awful. I won't write him off after 1 bad spring training game, but Nova, Colon, and Garcia should win the last 3 pitching spots, IMO. If the Yankees release Mitre before Monday, they'll owe him 45 days termination pay (roughly $175 K ) instead of his $900 K full season salary.

      Joba's velocity was fine in his return to game action.

      No Granderson update until tomorrow, at the earliest -- his injury may not be bad enough to land him on the DL, though.

      • Yankees claim Jose Ortegano
        By Mike Axisa
        Via Marc Carig, the Yankees have claimed left-hander Jose Ortegano off waivers from the Braves and optioned him to Triple-A Scranton. The 23-year-old from Venezuela made 20 starts for Atlanta’s Triple-A affiliate last year, pitching to a 4.56 FIP in 103 IP. He was not among their top 30 prospects in the 2011 edition of Baseball America’s Prospect Handbook, but he ranked 25th in 2010. “His fastball sits 86-88 mph and occasionally touched 90,” they said. “He also has a plus curveball and locates his changeup with precision … his ultimate role may be as a crafty left-handed reliever.”

        Given Pedro Feliciano’s bothersome triceps and Boone Logan’s nagging injury filled camp, it doesn’t hurt to have another lefty around to stash in Triple-A. Ortegano’s nothing special, but certainly not useless. · (3) ·

        Girardi cautiously optimistic about Granderson’s injury
        By Mike Axisa
        Via Chad Jennings, it sounds like Joe Girardi is cautiously optimistic about Curtis Granderson’s oblique injury. “I believe there’s a chance he’s going to play Opening Day,” said the skipper. ‘Now, I haven’t talked to [Gene Monahan] yet about all the tests he’s been through, but I believe he’s got a chance to play Opening Day.” Grandy went through a series of tests today but not an MRI, so the full extent of the injury is being determined.

        • UPDATE, 7:03 p.m.: Couple of quick updates. OF Jordan Parraz, C Jose Gil,
          1B/DH Jorge Vazquez and OF Greg Golson have been sent to minor league camp. They’ll report after tomorrow’s off day.

          Golson was sent down so that he can finally get at-bats.

          Also, Curtis Granderson went for an MRI that showed a slight strain of the internal oblique. No tear and Granderson didn’t hear a pop when it happened, but it sounds like the Yankees might be cautious rather than push him toward Opening Day.

          • Yankees cut three more from Major League camp
            By Mike Axisa
            Via Marc Carig, the Yankees have reassigned LHRP Steve Garrison, RHRP Ryan Pope, and RHRP Eric Wordekemper to minor league camp. The first two are on the 40-man roster, so they were optioned down. I could be wrong, but I believe there are now 36 players left in big league camp, not counting the injured Frankie Cervelli, Reegie Corona, and Colin Curtis. Manny Banuelos is still there, which is kinda surprising. · (0) ·


            MRI reveals oblique strain for Granderson
            By Mike Axisa
            Update (8:18pm): Apparently Granderson did have an MRI after all. Marc Carig reports that it revealed an oblique strain, which is obviously some pretty crummy news. Grandy downplayed the injury, comparing it to Joba Chamberlain’s recent oblique strain, but even that kept the right-hander on he shelf for ten days. It’s possible the Yankees won’t have their center fielder for Opening Day, but hopefully he won’t miss much more than that.

              • Freddy Garcia pitched 6 innings vs Phillies minor leaguers.

                The Yankees have to make roster decisions soon.

                Backup C is wide open -- Jesus Montero vs Austin Romine vs journeyman Gustavo Molina. Should be a short term opening, with Francisco Cervelli likely back by mid April.

                Eric Chavez will win the corner IF reserve spot

                Eduardo Nunez vs Ramiro Pena for the middle IF reserve spot -- my gut says Nunez

                Freddy Garcia vs Bartolo Colon vs Ivan Nova vs Sergio Mitre for 3 spots -- Nova will win the #4 starter spot, Garcia or Colon the #5 (I'd pick Colon), with the other becoming the long reliever/spot starter. I look for Mitre to be traded.

                If Granderson starts the year on the DL (if so, he should return by April 10th) Justin Maxwell vs Greg Golson for the #4 OF spot -- toss up. Both have some major league experience and can back up all 3 OF positions.

                • Yankees reportedly on verge of signing pitcher Kevin Millwood
                  Marc Carig/The Star-Ledger

                  Posted:03/25/2011 2:58 AM
                  TAMPA, Fla. — In describing his choices to fill out the starting rotation, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman used the term "low-risk/reward." Hours later, Cashman was reportedly on the brink of adding another such option in right-hander Kevin Millwood.

                  The pitcher was close to signing a minor league contract on Thursday night, according to si.com, a move that seemingly gives the Yankees an insurance policy behind rotation candidates Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon.

                  The Yankees have been in talks with Millwood at various points during the offseason, waiting for the pitcher to lower his price. Though he is signing a minor league deal, si.com reported that the contract would include incentives.

                  I'll be interested to see the terms and Millwood's opt out date. I have no problem with signing him to a minor league deal.

                    Very expected. I can see the Yankees trade for another starting pitcher later this season. Could be Felix Hernendez, could be Cole Hamels or Roy Oswalt. Who knows

                    • Done deal. After missing spring training, Millwood will need at least a month in AAA to be considered for promotion. Betting he has an opt out date somewhere between May15th to June 1st.

                      The official said the contract for Millwood is in the same range as Garcia's. Garcia will earn $1.5 million if he is on the Yankees' Opening Day roster. Garcia's deal could be worth as much as $3.6 million if he makes 30 or more starts. http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/m...ory?id=6257148

                          • The Yankees got OF Chris Di#kerson from the Brewers for Mitre. Nice move. Di#kerson has one year of minor league options remaining. He hit only .206 in 97 AB for the Reds and Brewers last season, but combined to hit .283 in 357 AB for the Reds in 2008-2009. He can play all 3 OF positions and turns 29 April 10th.

                            • According to a source involved in the deal, Kevin Millwood was signed to a pro-rated $1.5 million deal with incentives, but has to be on the Yankees 25-man big league roster by May 1 or the deal is void. Millwood, who was signed as insurance for Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon, both of whom apparently have made the team, and will go to extended spring training. http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/yan...millwood-deal?
