It’s a pleasant 70 degrees in Tampa but there is a chance of rain as the pitchers and catchers gather for their second workout.

Andy Pettitte and Chien-Ming Wang will throw in the bullpen today. CMW has already been off the mound several times as he reported to Tampa early. The only non-catcher in camp is Hideki Matsui, who can show up early because he is a rehab player. All he really does is jog and take batting practice.

Under the terms of the collective-bargaining agreement, players are not allowed to start working out with the team until a certain date. That is why Derek Jeter, Nich Swisher, Brett Gardner, etc. are at the minor-league complex. Robinson Cano and Melky Cabrera are at the team complex in the Dominican.

The position players report on Monday and the first full-squad workout is Tuesday.

Back later with some reports from the field.
