Interesting day for the Yankees today as Shelley Duncan started to build his case and Chien-Ming Wang got off to a good start.

Duncan (2 for 3, five RBI) wasn’t too excited about his big game.

“In spring training most of the time, especially at the start, you don’t ever worry about the results. You worry about the process,” he said. “You want to get to the point where you’re comfortable and consistent every time.

“You can’t make too much of it. In spring you’re going to have feelings when you’re locked in and they go away quickly.”

Wang, meanwhile, threw three changeups. He’s trying to master the pitch enough to throw nine or 10 per start. Jose Molina, who caught CMW today, said a change would be “devastating” along with his heavy sinker and change.

Lots of buzz about Austin Jackson. He’ll head down to minor-league camp in a week or so. But he’s catching a lot of eyes.

Good work by Billy Traber, who faced three lefties in the fourth and retired them in order. Joe Girardi is begging for one of the lefties to prove he’s worthy of a roster spot.
