Spring training is about to get a little more lively.
Position players report today for their physicals, They’ll be in and out of the clubhouse throughout the morning, though I’m sure we’ll never see some of the guys. Physicals started at 7:30, so some guys have been here for a while.
First full-squad workout isn’t until tomorrow. Derek Jeter will address the media Sunday. Alex Rodriguez will do his press conference on Monday. No specific reason for the Jeter and Rodriguez events, those two are simply the most prominent Yankees and they’re going to be surrounded by media one way or the other. Might as well do it in an organized setting.
As for the early morning work, Mark Prior was on the field when I got to the stadium. He’ll be one of the guys throwing an early one-on-one bullpen with Larry Rothschild.
