Here are some notable nuggets that happened during Tuesday’s Yankees spring training action:
Gleyber Torres, who became a father for the first time on Sunday, said he can focus on the field even as his thoughts are with his new son Ethan. Torres had two goals in a 9-2 loss to Toronto at TD Ballpark and is 6-4 so far this spring.
Aroldis Chapman threw his first live batting practice of the spring at Tampa’s Steinbrenner Field and showed some ferocity in his one inning of work — including a pitch that forced Joey Gallo to duck. Chapman struggled with his control last season, spending 6.1 walks per nine innings.
Matt Krook, a 27-year-old lefty who split between Double-A Somerset and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last year, hit five and conceded just one hit in three shutout innings. Aaron Boone said it’s the first time he’s seen Krook in person and called the outing “impressive”.
The schedule for Wednesday
The Yankees play their first night game of the spring when they host the Orioles at 6:35 p.m. at Steinbrenner Field. Deivi Garcia is set to make his Grapefruit League debut after his ugly 2021 season.
