Here are some notable nuggets that happened during Tuesday’s Yankees spring training action:
Ready for prime time?
Joey Gallo’s up-and-down spring ended on two hits as he finished the Grapefruit League schedule with a homer and 13 strikeouts at 8-for-32. Everyone can imagine how he performs in the Bronx.
A day after his assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Manny Banuelos gave up three runs – including a homer on Miguel Cabrera – in 3 ¹/₃ innings to end an otherwise excellent spring as he tries to make the majors to return .
Kyle Higashioka, Josh Donaldson, Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Anthony Rizzo, Gleyber Torres and Isiah Kiner-Falefa all finished the spring with at least an .877 OPS. After the lineup struggled last spring, perhaps a positive sign for the regular season.
The schedule for Wednesday
The Yankees are expected to have a day of practice at Yankee Stadium in preparation for Thursday’s season opener in the Bronx against the Red Sox. The weather could delay both, with opening day possibly pushed back to Friday.
