While most of the Yankees were asleep, Chan Ho Park announced that he would be joining their bullpen. The Yankees already have multiple long relief options, but the Yankees have been impressed by Park’s work as a reliever and saw him first hand in the World Series.
Long after Park’s South Korea press conference, A.J. Burnett threw his first bullpen session of the spring, and he threw it with Jorge Posada behind the plate. The two are committed to working together this season. The notebook also has items on Dave Robertson, Jesus Montero and Andy Pettitte.
Position player physicals begin at 7:30 this morning.
