For the most part, things are quiet down in Tampa. The minor league complex where players have been working out for the past week is locked, but over at the big league complex, Hiroki Kuroda just threw a 25-pitch bullpen.
Kuroda included quite a few offspeed pitches and said he threw bullpens “several times already” before getting to Tampa. He was wearing shorts and a t-shirt.
“It’s not an actual uniform,” he said. “But I feel really proud to wear this (Yankees) uniform… I always felt a lot of energy from (New York City).”
