    Signed pending a physical. Might take a few days to get the results of total body MRI, Bone Density and whatever else to clear him to play.

    Welcome back Eric.

    He’ll do just fine. Paying $4-5 Mil for a utility player wouldn’t have been very smart.

    Thankfully, we’ll have live games in less than two weeks, and then people can fret over fake games.

    ————————————————————————————————————————-

    God forbid that they lose 2 ST games in a row.

    J. Alfred Prufrock February 21st, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    LOL. It will be nice to have even fake games to react to. Very exciting early when you get to see the kids before they assign them.
    ______
    Yep, GB, the pressure will be on to win at all costs. ;)

    Pruf, looking forward to seeing the kids, as well. Since the trade, the days have crawled by.

    Oy gevalt. Will you stop with the kvetching already? :wink:

  7. Nick in SF February 21st, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    Has anyone ever gotten injured during the physical itself?

  8. Jerkface February 21st, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Sherman is a good beat writer because he has real connections and can offer better insight than most. His twitter is a good follow because like Jack Curry, you can get an idea of what the yankees are thinking or atleast wanting people to think they are thinking.

  9. Yankee Trader February 21st, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Barring injuries, those 25 look about right. However if all the work Bill Hall put in with Kevin Long this offseason pays off, he will go North with the team or have to be granted his release. Nunez back to AAA in that scenario?

  10. Jerkface February 21st, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    If they didn’t send Nunez to AAA last year when they had more cause to do it, I can’t see them doing it again this year when they plan to rest players more.

  11. yankeefeminista February 21st, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Fixed:

    Bench(ez):

    Cervell(ez)
    Nunez
    Ibanez
    Chavez

  12. Rich in NJ February 21st, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    Some prospect is going to make a statement is ST; someone almost always does. If they are lucky, maybe a minor injury will open a spot for them. Then, voilà, Jeremy Lin II.

  13. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    YankeeFem,

    Back in the day, GMS would go crazy furing ST when the Yanks lost…especially against Boston. It was back up the truck time, though if they lost against the Mets. It was almost comical.

  14. Yankee Trader February 21st, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    Has anyone ever gotten injured during the physical itself?

    Nick-

    Have you ever had a treadmill stress test? I’m sure there have been injuries falling off it when the incline is up! :)

  15. J. Alfred Prufrock February 21st, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    Since Jan. 13th, Nunez’ bat has taken on a certain importance. Give him OF reps, too. Keep his bat engaged.

  16. yankeefeminista February 21st, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Nick, possibly Pavano?

  17. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    There’s nothing that Hall offers that Nunez doesn’t. Hall doesn’t play shortstop and he really plays no position well, even with all of his experience. He’s insurance.

  18. Yankee Trader February 21st, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Bronx-

    Good comeback!.

  19. Rich in NJ February 21st, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    If Nunez’s defense improves, as I expect it will, he could get a lot of AB this season.

  20. J. Alfred Prufrock February 21st, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    Nunez has too much stick to sit around and gather rust. Agree rich, his defense will take a turn for the better.

  21. yankeefeminista February 21st, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Is Yankees Baseball Daily showing highlights from camp these days?

  22. yankeefeminista February 21st, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Nunez needs the reps. It’s tough to keep sharp from the bench. Bet he has a strong ST.

  23. Yankee Trader February 21st, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    I’d like to see Justin Maxwell have a good spring and stand a chance uf making the team, especially since he’s out of options.

  24. stuckey February 21st, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    “Since Jan. 13th, Nunez’ bat has taken on a certain importance. Give him OF reps, too. Keep his bat engaged.”

    The key to the Yankees making the postseason is Eduardo Nunez, eh?

  25. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Send Cano to AAA to work on his plate selection.

  26. luis February 21st, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Good evening everyone!!.

    I must say that i like both recent signings ( Ibanez and Chavez ), they both bring veteran savyy and in a limited role they probably should do fine. I couldn’t comment on AJ’s trade, but i am glad for him, and that trade pretty much clears things up, i think we only have the 5th starter battle between Garcia and Hughes, I hope Hughes wins it, because otherwise his time in pinstripes should be very short with the new wave of talent coming up.

    I do hope Nunez stays with the big club, i did liked what i saw from him last season.

  27. TheStraw February 21st, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    I guess Branyan will be gone unless someone gets injured or he is willing to accept the miL assignment and not opt out after he fails to make the roster. Ugh. I’d rather take a shot on him than Chavez, even though I like Chavy.

  28. yankeefeminista February 21st, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Hi Luis! I hope we give Hughes every opportunity to win the 5th spot. I don’t like the fatalistic approach to Hughes. Putting him in the bullpen is basically the end for him as a starter in NY.

  29. Yankee Trader February 21st, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    More Comments from AJ:

    Asked who changed him, Burnett replied, “It wasn’t exactly a change. I think maybe reactions here or there from the crowd if I walked a couple guys or got in bad counts early, it’s like it’s over. But it’s not over, I still got six or seven innings left to pitch, so ease up.

    “At the same time, I turned a lot [in my delivery in the past]. I had deception in my delivery in 2009 that made me successful. It wasn’t anybody. They didn’t like the turn. They wanted me to be more of a strike thrower and try to get more consistent in the strike zone because I was wild in that delivery — but then again I was more powerful and dominant in that delivery.”

    Was there anyone in the ML who was a worse fielder that Edwardo ?

    Go to AAA and play and get better….geeeeez, please get better !

    I think he must bring his A-game. I want to see the kid i saw one night in Arlington not too long ago….:)

    Keep him out of the pen.

    luis, I agree that Hughes must pitch well; however, I hope that we aren’t impatient with him if he is progressing. Having CC and Kuroda, fronting that rotation should cut the developing pitchers some slack. Or else we will never learn to develop pitchers.

  38. J. Alfred Prufrock February 21st, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Hey luis! You still on the road? I’m not as keen on the two signings as you are, but at least the pitching should be interesting this season.

    Nunez will learn more in NY with Rodriguez, Chavez, Cano and Jeter instructing him than he will learn from the AAA coaches.

    If AJ felt over-tweaked, why wouldn’t he say so? He’s not condemning anyone by saying so, nor does he have to stroke the Yankees any more.

  44. Yankee Trader February 21st, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    Don’t forget to watch the short video on Rivera.

  45. Bronx Jeers February 21st, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    Trader,

    I guess what AJ’s saying makes some sense. His rotation did seem to evolve into something with less torque or whatever. And it didn’t really help him with his control. He was still as wild as ever but maybe the tamer delivery just made the ball a little easier to pick up.

    He drove me crazy but I wish him well.

    ========================

    Hi JAP,

    No, i’m back home!!. Pitching wise, we should have one of the strongest rotations we’ve had in years. About the two signings i guess you were more on the Damon or Matsui camp, i rather have Ibanez, he has power and can actually play the field. On Chavez, my gut tells me that you rather give the chance to Laird, i would have liked that to happen, but i also like Chavez.

    Yankeefem,

    I am on that boat too, i do hope they show some patience with the kid. But at the same time i want him to beat everyone and show the determination and the “eye of the tiger”i haven’t seen in while from him

  47. luis February 21st, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    Yankee Trader February 21st, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    I do believe Rivera will retire after this season, i hope i am wrong but his words are hinting that way IMO.

  48. 4time February 21st, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    Pitchers don’t like being tinkered with, young or old. Unless there is a fundamental problem with the mechanics or pitching style, there is no need to make the guy do something thay is unnatural for him.

  49. J. Alfred Prufrock February 21st, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    //

    Yes, the rotation should be more than fine. I’m really rooting for Hughes to be what we all thought he was to become. That would be very rewarding to see. I wasn’t in Damon/Matsui camp, either, but Matsui would have been my choice between the two of those. If they had worked a deal for Abreu, that would have been preferable to any other options, IMO. I want that contact guy. I do like Laird’s bat and how he plays the corners. But Chavez signing doesn’t really bother me – it’s the two of them combined that’s disappointing.

  50. yankeefeminista February 21st, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Jay (Illinois): Can you give us 10 names that just missed the top 100? Thanks!

    Jim Callis: Giants C Tommy Joseph was No. 100 until Yoenis Cespedes signed. Others who just missed, in no particular order: Cardinals RHP Lance Lynn, Astros SS Jonathan Villar, Rangers RHP Neil Ramirez, Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna, Royals RHP Kelvin Herrera, Nationals RHP Alex Meyer, Padres C Austin Hedges, Yankees RHP Jose Campos, Pirates RHP Luis Heredia.

  51. Rich in NJ February 21st, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    The fundamental problem with AJ was his results. And btw, that’s his version. The Yankees probably have a version too.

  52. yankeefeminista February 21st, 2012 at 9:33 pm

  53. RMS February 21st, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    Whether AJ was tinkered with or not, he was/is a .500 pitcher who was grossly overpaid.
    I’m glad he was traded. Now he can pitch, I mean throw, for a losing team. No pressure, no people in the stands, so he doesn’t have to worry about being booed.
    So, AJ throw your wild pitches, hit batters, throw pitches in the dirt, and maybe be the Pie Man.

  54. J. Alfred Prufrock February 21st, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    I don’t get why people hate on players the instant they’re ex-Yankees, but whatever floats your boat.

  55. luis February 21st, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    JAP,

    Was Abreu available??, didn’t know that, he would have been a far better choice than all of the other posibilities. Could you elaborate on why you don’t like signing both?? is it because they are both lefthanded??.

    On Hughes, i’m rooting for him too but he has to show that he wants it

  56. J. Alfred Prufrock February 21st, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    luis,

    Reportedly, there was a potential deal with the Angels – an AJ-Abreu exchange. I guess AJ vetoed the West Coast via his NTC.

    Re the signings, it’s already an older team. I just wish we had another good young bat, that’s all. You know I hated that trade, so I can’t really get too exuberant about how they handled their DH vacancy. Chavez is alright, I guess. Abreu, I could work up a pulse over, because he has one. Just a damn good hitter who is also smart. Tired of guys waving at outside crap and swinging from their heels.

  57. luis February 21st, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    Yankeefem,

    thanks for the link, that’s impresive, haven’t been able to get any information from Campos, but being in A ball and already being considered in the top 100 prospects, speaks volumes of his ceiling

  58. Pat M. February 21st, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    GB…..I’ve always thought the most prevalent problem with Nunez from a defensive standpoint was his footwork which leads to so many errant throws….

    JAP,

    I hear you!!! :( . Yes it is getting old, that’s why i don’t mind the short term deals for this kind of guys. But please, i am still trying to recover from the trade and putting it behind me. But i am with you completely.

  60. dan l February 21st, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Chavez what a waste! He is useless.

  61. yankeefeminista February 21st, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Luis, I don’t know if you missed the various postings on Campos, but here are a couple (two separate posts).

    “Jose Campos, rhp
    Age: 19.
    Born: July 27, 1992 in La Guaira, Venezuela.
    Ht.: 6-4. Wt.: 195. Bats: R. Throws: R.
    Career Transactions: Signed as nondrafted free agent by Mariners, Jan. 15, 2009.

    Club (League) Class W L ERA G GS SV IP H R ER HR BB SO WHIP
    Everett (NWL) SS 5 5 2.32 14 14 0 81.1 66 34 21 4 13 85 0.97
    Campos signed with the Mariners for $115,000 in January 2009. A cousin of big leaguers Alcides and Kelvim Escobar, Campos led the short-season Northwest League in ERA (2.32) and strikeouts (85) in his U.S. debut, ranking as the No. 4 prospect. His fastball operates at 92-95 mph and has been clocked as high as 98. For a youngster, he has advanced feel for pitching off his fastball and locating it. His heater has deception, angle and life. Just a thrower when he got to Everett last summer, he grew as a pitcher. His hard curveball and his changeup show flashes of becoming plus pitches. They lack consistency but improved as he cleaned up his delivery, as the Mariners helped him soften his landing and getting better extension out front. He shows poise on the mound and fills the strike zone. Campos should join a wave of Yankees prospects heading to low Class A Charleston in 2012, a group including 2011 supplemental first-rounder Dante Bichette Jr., outfielder Mason Williams and other members of its 2011 championship teams at short-season Staten Island and in the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League.”

  62. J. Alfred Prufrock February 21st, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    luis, I think of even a guy like Tabata (whose idol, incidentally, is Abreu) getting away. All I can say is, thank the stars the Diamondbacks balked at Cano for Randy Johnson. We’d have virtually no exceptional young hitter had that deal gone through.

    I really would like to see Nunez get enough ABs to give us a quick young bat with gap power to complement Cano. I expect Jeter to be more like his second half last year, and hope Alex is somehow healthy all year.

    ————————————————————————————————————————-

    Pat,

    That’s always been a ptoblem with every indielder coming through the system. I thought that he had turned a corner in 2010, but, he’s reverted. It’s foing to take a conventional infielder to work with him. Jeter and Cano are not really the type of infielders that you’d model a player after because their styles are rather unconventional. It would need to be a Larry Bowa or Vazquel type to work with him. Rodriguez and Chavez can work with him at third, but, most on his infield play will come from the middle positions.

    GB…..I’ve always thought the most prevalent problem with Nunez from a defensive standpoint was his footwork which leads to so many errant throws….

    Nunez only had 10 errors in 410 chances at SS in 2010 in the minors. I think his main problems were lack of regular playing time and probably pressing/nerves. That and he never had much experience at 3B and 2B in the minors.

  67. 4time February 21st, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    “I don’t get why people hate on players the instant they’re ex-Yankees, but whatever floats your boat.”

    The organization itself does it.

    And it’s always the same story “work ethic”.

  68. luis February 21st, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Yankeefem,

    Again thank you, i’ve been in and out,so i haven’t have the time to read most of the postings, that’s why i am little lost. I guess i am going to root real hard for Campos to make it to the big club as a consolation for losing The Jesus.

    JAP,

    I know exactly how you feel. And i think you are right, with Cano we got lucky. I don’t think Nunez can be the bat to accompany Cano, but i do think he can be a very fun player to watch in the top of the order in the not so distant future. I think the only bat that can complement and protect Cano is Sanchez but he is too far away from the Big leagues right now, and when he is ready probably Cano will have one or two great seasons left on him ( He is 30 already ), that’s why i think it was crazy to trade Montero ( putting aside my obvious biased toward the issue ).

    On top of that, i am not as optimistic as you are on Arod and Jeter. They will be very productive players, but i don’t think they will be able to bring back their former numbers. That’s why i said at some point that they will have to trade the B’s to get an impact bat, i hope i’m wrong on this issue but age is not on their side anymore.

  69. Pat M. February 21st, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    jacksquat…..I wonder how many of those E-Nunez were throwing errors ???? His footwork is bad and seems to always out of sync…..But he has a nice stick and with better balance he’ll be an improved infielder

  70. Against All Odds February 21st, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    That’s the thing Cano doesn’t have a running mate. Tex should be that guy but his slash line has been trending in the wrong direction over the past few yrs.

  71. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Pat,

    P’d really like to see Nunez turn into a Randy Velarde type until a position of his own comes open. He doesn’t need to be brilliant, just more than acceptable at 5 or 6 positions, or back in the day, Tony Kubek.

  72. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    spot on

  74. Against All Odds February 21st, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    I can’t believe Cano is 30 or will be 30. I remember when he came up as a 22 yr old. Time goes by so fast.

  75. luis February 21st, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Odds,

    the older you get, the faster it goes….my oldest daughter is 21, it seems like yesterday that she was born.

  76. yankeefeminista February 21st, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    Pat M., I believe a good number of Nunez’s errors were throwing errors.

    Trisha, thought you would appreciate this post, which I “borrowed” off of nyyfans forum for you(unless of course you were actually the author of this post ;) ):

    “For good entertainment, tune into WEEI to listen to the hosts and fans whining about receiving Carpenter as compensation instead of a top 3 prospect/Garza/Castro.”

  77. tucker February 21st, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    If Gardner goes through a prolonged slump this season, I wonder if we’ll see Ibanez take a handful of starts in left with Chavez at DH.

    If he works hard and impresses the coaches and Girardi, Bill Hall would win out over Ramiro Pena. His experience and versatility (except for SS) could be the deciding factor. Unlike Angel Berroa, Bill Hall is still only 32 years old.
    Eduardo Nunez is in no jeopardy of losing his job. Between veteran players and coach Mick Kelleher his throws and footwork will show much improvement over last year.

    “I don’t get why people hate on players the instant they’re ex-Yankees, but whatever floats your boat.”

    The organization itself does it.

    And it’s always the same story “work ethic”.

    I would seem so.

    Oppenheimer for GM.
    Tony Pena for manager.
    :D

    JAP,

    I know exactly how you feel. And i think you are right, with Cano we got lucky. I don’t think Nunez can be the bat to accompany Cano, but i do think he can be a very fun player to watch in the top of the order in the not so distant future. I think the only bat that can complement and protect Cano is Sanchez but he is too far away from the Big leagues right now, and when he is ready probably Cano will have one or two great seasons left on him ( He is 30 already ), that’s why i think it was crazy to trade Montero ( putting aside my obvious biased toward the issue ).

    On top of that, i am not as optimistic as you are on Arod and Jeter. They will be very productive players, but i don’t think they will be able to bring back their former numbers. That’s why i said at some point that they will have to trade the B’s to get an impact bat, i hope i’m wrong on this issue but age is not on their side anymore.

    Hi again luis.

    No, Nunez isn’t going to replace Montero (lol). I just meant it gives us another live, young bat. We’re lacking in those. He can hit, too. I tell you, I do not like the loose lips crap that is going on, and I wonder if the writing isn’t on the wall about Sanchez. How many stories am I going to hear about his “work ethic”?

    Can’t they just shut their mouths and take care of business with these TEENAGERS behind closed doors?? Hopefully, with the easiness of Cano’s swing -and virtually everything else he effortlessly achieves – he will be “young” for a long time.

    I actually am more confident about Jeter’s season than Alex’s – because of the hip and the knee. In both, age is a concern. The “support” guys are limited hitters.

    Yesterday I mentioned I’d like to see the Yanks re-sign Chavez for $900K base so he and Ibanez cost only $2M base hahaha.
