Phil Hughes, Jeff Karstens and Andrew Brackman have been working out in Tampa for a few weeks now. Joba Chamberlain has joined them. Brackman is on the 40-man roster, so he’ll be in camp. But he’ll be out all season as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.
The Yankees have a full 40-man roster. But spots will clear when Brackman and Carl Pavano go on the 60-day disabled list. Not sure whether Humberto Sanchez will be a 60-day candidate
Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada, who have homes in the area, are working out at the complex as well.
The players work out at the minor-league complex, not Legends Field. MLB doesn’t allow players onto the main fields until camp officially opens.
Excellent story on Brian Cashman by Tyler Kepner in The Times today.
It’ll be very interesting to see how the dynamic between Cashman and the Steinbrenner brothers develops.
Meanwhile, it’s nice to see Mattingly Baseball is advertising on the blog.
