Here are some notable nuggets that happened during Friday’s Yankees spring training session:
A good opportunity
After Aaron Boone all but assured Albert Abreu’s presence on opening day, in part because the right-hander is out of options and can’t be sent to the minors without going through waivers, Abreu threw 1²/₃ shutout innings and hasn in not allowed a run in 4 ²/₃ innings this spring.
Joey Gallo picks up where he left off last season. He has fanned twice more and whistled 11 times in 27 plate appearances this spring. Gallo had an MLB high of 213 strikeouts last season. He’s also only 4-for-24 with a pair of extra base hits.
Miguel Cabrera turns 39 this month, but he was still able to lead Chad Green deep into the opposition. It was the first homer Green allowed that spring and the first Cabrera hit. The bat has 502 homers in his career.
The schedule for Saturday
Luis Severino is scheduled to make his first start since suffering a sore arm after his last appearance last Friday when the Yankees host the Braves at 1:05 p.m. at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa
