Here are some notable nuggets that happened during Tuesday’s Yankees spring training action.
After healing a sore right shoulder on Monday, Josh Donaldson made a nice attacking play at third base on a Jean Segura chopper, complete with a strong throw at first. Marwin Gonzalez made a nice scoop about the game.
Not so hot corner
With the Yankees in a shift, Donaldson moved to shortstop where he couldn’t score a sharp grounder that was hit squarely on him for an error. He was also saved from a throwing error when Gonzalez made a sweeping throw from Donaldson, which was wide.
Isiah Kiner-Falefa continues to hit. The shortstop had two more singles and a stolen base. He is now 8-for-19 (.421) with an OPS of .924. But it should probably be noted that Kiner-Falefa had successes the spring before that didn’t carry over to the regular season. He has a career average of .337 and a .938 OPS in spring compared to .265 and .670 in the regular season.
The schedule for Wednesday
Manny Banuelos will look to continue his strong spring on his comeback attempt when the Yankees host the Blue Jays at Steinbrenner Field at 6:30 p.m
