Joe Torre was talking about the bullpen today and more or less said non-roster LHP Ron Villone would be on the team. The only spot they need to fill is for a long man and that could well be somebody like Jeff Karstens.
Right now, the seven relievers look to be Mariano Rivera, Scott Proctor, Krazy Kyle Farnsworth, Luis Vizcaino, Mike Myers, Ron Villone and TBA.
Notes: Humberto Sanchez will be shut down for 10 days or so to let his elbow calm down. … After a brief workout today, Torre gathered the team at home plate for a base-running drill. He had Doug Mientkiewicz and Brett Gardner race to second, with Gardner going around third and Minky around first. As they started, the entire team walked off the field laughing. It was just a prank.
