Spring Training Notes: 3/1/12

David Robertson

Yes, it’s officially March meaning Yankees Baseball is back! Yankees first televised game is Saturday at 1pm and the starting outfield (Swisher, Gardner & Granderson) will make the trip to Clearwater to play against the Phillies! Now that we have got that out of the way, let’s get to the notes for today!

— Today was an abbreviated workout for the Yankees since they went on their annual Field Trip! Where did they go? The Comedy Club! They did improvisations of other teammates and Joe Girardi had pre-written sketches for the players to act out when they got there. You might be surprised, but Rafael Soriano might have a knack at comedy since he loves to sing.

— Hal Steinbrenner spoke with reporters today after the Yankees left. He says that he would like to keep the payroll at $189 Million by 2014. He also said he’s not a fan of extending contracts in the middle of contracts but he didn’t rule it out.

— The Yankees play their first game tomorrow against the University of South Florida and everyone except for Robinson Cano will get a turn to bat in the lineup.  Cano won’t bat until Sunday when the Yankees play the Phillies at George M. Steinbrenner Field. The outfielders Brett Gardner, Nick Swisher & Curtis Granderson will make the trip to Clearwater on Saturday to play vs. the Phillies.

— And Courtesy of the Daily News, (the same as last year) the Yankees had taken pictures on the field (Trust me…it was a lot of pictures). So here are your 2012 New York Yankees!
