The Yankees are taking optional batting practice in the Rogers Centre.
Good turnout. The early hitters are: Cody Ransom, Jerry Hairston Jr., Jorge Posada, Eric Hinske, Nick Swisher, Derek Jeter, Jose Molina, Melky Cabrera and Robbie Cano.
Joba Chamberlain, Mark Melancon and Phil Coke are shagging flies in center. The Yankees typically hold n early workout after days off or before the first game in a road city.
Before you get all uppity about who is not here, keep in mind that every player has a different routine. Some players like more BP, others less. Some guys prefer working out in the afternoons or hitting off a tee in the cage. A-Rod is probably doing rehab work on his hip, etc.
