Tweet [1]

In Joe Girardi’s spring training office, one wall is covered by a massive dry-erase board configured into a calendar. It’s been fairly blank since camp opened, but this afternoon is was covered with players initials, outlining┬áthe Yankees rotation for the first 11 spring training dates.

Andy Pettitte will not pitch in a game until March 12, but he will throw a simulated game in Tampa on March 7th.

The Yankees have not announced which relievers will be pitching each day. The first time through, their starters will be limited to roughly 35 pitches.
