Yankees minor leaguers report tomorrow

First a quick reminder that today’s game is a night game, with the players not scheduled to report to Steinbrenner Field until the early afternoon.

Today is the report date for all of the Yankees minor league coaches, many of whom have been in big league camp since pitchers and catchers showed up last month. Minor league players report tomorrow, take their physicals on Sunday and have their first workouts on Monday morning.

The Yankees will split their minor leaguers into four workout groups — very preliminary versions of the Triple-A through Low-A rosters, all of which will change a lot before Opening Day — and the players will go through standard drills for almost two weeks before the minor league spring schedule begins on March 19.

The minor league spring schedule works like this: Every day, all Yankees minor leaguers will play one other organization (Pirates, Blue Jays or Phillies). Two teams (Triple-A and Double-A for example) will go on the road while the other two teams stay home. If a big leaguer needs innings or at-bats, he’ll go to the minor league complex and pretty much do whatever he wants. A hitter might leadoff every inning, and a pitcher might pitch a five-out inning. Whatever it takes to get the work in.

Here’s the minor league spring schedule.
