I was going to go with some Simon and Garfunkel lyrics at the top of this post, but that seemed to be a bit much. Instead, we’ll go with just a few more Associated Press photos and a one picture from reader Mike Howells of Johnny Damon’s return to Yankees camp.
First, some late night links, then the pictures.
• Brett Gardner was profiled by College of Charleston Magazine. The story includes a cool picture of Gardner standing on the deck of the USS Yorktown.
• If the Pirates carry seven relievers on Opening Day, Jeff Karstens is one of the pitchers with a chance to crack the roster.
• Shelley Duncan has been sent to Indians minor league camp. An elbow injury kept him from getting many early at-bats with Cleveland.
• Mike Dunn has also been sent to minor league camp. The Braves optioned him to Triple-A with a 1.42 ERA but also more than a walk per inning in big league camp.
• Speaking of the Braves, Melky Cabrera leads the team in at-bats and is hitting .264/.339/.340 this spring.
