More early activity than usual here at Steinbrenner Field this morning.
In deep right field, Joba Chamberlain just finished warming up and walked into the bullpen, and now Ivan Nova is warming up with some flat-ground throwing before he too goes for an early bullpen.
In shallow right field, Melky Mesa, Bradley Suttle, Justin Maxwell and a fourth player I can’t ID are doing some light jogging, apparently getting ready for some sort of early work of their own. I would guess that they’re about to take some fly balls — there are coaches holding bats as if they’re about to hit a few — but a third baseman is in the mix, so maybe they’re just getting loose before they go to the cage.
Today’s main events will take place later this morning.
First Derek Jeter will address the media, then the Yankees will hold their first full-squad workout of the spring.
