Derek Jeter was the first position player I saw when the clubhouse opened this morning. The last guy to walk in, just as the clubhouse was closing to the media, was Alex Rodriguez.
Looks like everyone is here, or at least almost everyone. The only big name I didn’t see this morning was Robinson Cano, but that doesn’t mean much. He easily could have been out of the clubhouse, but still somewhere in the stadium.
The weight watchers stories will probably come to an end. All of the hitters seemed to be in good shape, including Mark Teixeira who said he took a lot more swings than usual this winter, trying to break his string of bad Aprils and trying to correct some problems with his left-handed swing.
Otherwise, it was business as usual this morning. Camp is starting to get a lot more lively.
