Joe Girardi said he does not expect Russell Martin to be behind the plate for Saturday’s spring opener.

Martin’s hip is fine, but his knee is still stiff and the Yankees don’t want to risk a setback. They still expect him to be 100 percent at some point this spring, they’re just moving slowly.

Martin was supposed to do blocking drills today for the first time this spring.
