Brett Gardner is back in a familiar situation this spring, but the would-be starting outfielder is always up for the challenge of competition.
There were just a few small differences between Andy Pettitte’s “game” yesterday and his previous outing, but the lefty was happy to get his work in. The notebook also has info on two of the fifth-starter candidates pitching in Fort Myers, information on Francisco Cervelli’s situation, an update on Nick Johnson’s back and more.
Split-squad for the Yankees today against the Pirates in Bradenton and the Phillies at The Boss. Keep checking back for updates all day.
