Wednesday morning notes: Live batting practice comes early

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Feb 22, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Didn’t expect to see this on the morning schedule: Live batting practice.

Four different pitchers — Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances, D.J. Mitchell and Cesar Cabral — actually faced hitters today. That’s much earlier than usual, but a lot of these guys have been throwing for quite a while, so they’re ahead of the typical spring schedule.

Otherwise, today is more or less what you’d expect from the third workout: Another series of bullpens and the same group of hitters taking batting practice. There are a few clouds in the sky, but otherwise, it’s another nice day for (practice) baseball.

Rafael Soriano is throwing his first spring bullpen today. No surprise that Mariano Rivera is still not on the list of scheduled pitchers.

We heard yesterday that Joba Chamberlain is scheduled to throw off a mound today, but his name is listed only in a group labeled “conditioning.” He’s there with Rivera, Pedro Feliciano, Brad Meyers and Matt Daley. Feliciano is obvoiusly coming back from surgery, Meyers hurt his shoulder lifting weights, and Rivera is Rivera. But I’m not sure what’s going on with Daley. He’s hasn’t thrown a bullpen yet.

George Kontos said his oblique wasn’t too sore this morning. He’s still hoping this is just a minor setback. He wouldn’t have thrown a bullpen today with or without the injury.

Ray Kruml, Ronnier Mustelier, Shane Brown and Kyle Roller came over from the minor league complex to face pitchers during this morning’s live batting practice.

Still no locker assigned to Raul Ibanez or Eric Chavez. The locker Chavez used last season is still open, as is a locker right next to Derek Jeter.

Today’s bullpen groups:

Group 1
Phil Hughes (to Gustavo Molina)
Ivan Nova (to Jose Gil)
Michael Pineda (to Francisco Cervelli)
CC Sabathia (to Russell Martin)
Rafael Soriano (to Austin Romine)

Group 2
Freddy Garcia (to Gary Sanchez)
Hiroki Kuroda (to Russell Martin)
Boone Logan (to Austin Romine)
Dave Robertson (to J.R. Murphy)
Cory Wade (to Kyle Higashioka)

Batting practice groups:

Group 1: David Adams, Justin Maxwell, Andruw Jones
Group 2: Francisco Cervelli, Russell Martin, Austin Romine, Gustavo Molina
Group 3: Jose Gil, Gary Sanchez, Kyle Higashioka, J.R. Murphy

    Sounds like another fine day in Tampa.

    Good gosh it would be fun to be a major league ball player…

  3. Chip February 22nd, 2012 at 10:37 am

    Chad –

    any hint as to what the corresponding roster move will be when Chavez passes his physical and the deal is inked?

    I would suppose that the easiest thing would be to put Feliciano on the 60 day dl rather than releasing a player.

  4. LGY February 22nd, 2012 at 10:37 am

    Chamberlain and or Feliciano to the 60 day DL.

  8. randy l. February 22nd, 2012 at 10:51 am

    “Make or break time for Phil Phranchise.”

    i think hughes will do well this year simply because when he has a bad year he recommits.

    there’s really no reason why he can duplicate his 18 win year.

    “How depressing have things become that Joel Sherman gets what escaped Cashman?”

    The thing about Montero’s departure putting more pressure on A-Rod to be A-Rod? And that will be every year until another impact bat arrives.

    It’s suboptimal, but baseball isn’t real life, so whatever. I’m resigned to the fact that their payroll will erase many of their misjudgments.

    Yes, that thing about more pressure on ARod. Rich, even your resigned terms may be optimistic. Look who they signed to DH!

    That’s great news blake. You’re right it did work with Andruw, who I was especially hard on at the start of the season. Thank god I have a strong affection for Andruw’s mother lol. I wonder what Mama Ibanez has to offer by way of batting tips.

    In honor of Ash Wednesday (for the literary sort):

    Because I do not hope to turn again
    Because I do not hope
    Because I do not hope to turn
    Desiring this man’s gift and that man’s scope
    I no longer strive to strive towards such things
    (Why should the agèd eagle stretch its wings?)
    Why should I mourn
    The vanished power of the usual reign?

    Because I do not hope to know
    The infirm glory of the positive hour
    Because I do not think
    Because I know I shall not know
    The one veritable transitory power
    Because I cannot drink
    There, where trees flower, and springs flow, for there is
    nothing again

  12. GreenBeret7 February 22nd, 2012 at 10:57 am

    There isn’t any more pressure on Rodriguez this year than there is any other year. Montero wasn’t on the team before and he did pretty well.

  13. Patrick February 22nd, 2012 at 10:57 am

    Why don’t the Yankees just release Feliciano? He isn’t going to help the team this year so releasing him won’t cost them any money…

    Releasing him would be looked upon poorly by other players. If you keep him on the DL (where he’s also not harming the team) you’re allowing him to have access to your training facility, doctors and rehab specialists at no cost to him. Release him and he’s on his own. Players notice that stuff.

    ///

    You’re deliberately missing the point, but that’s your affair. Optimal ARod, plus a lineup producing at an optimal level, would preclude or significantly reduce, the need for a hitter like Montero.

    So if you believe that will occur (speaking only of THIS season; the “need” for a Montero bat increases with each year forward), then I guess you’d have been on board from “go” with this trade, and we know, through your own comments, that this isn’t so.

    Whatever.

    The trade still blows.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Yesterday I posted that I hope / figured the Yanks would re-sign Chavez for $900K base so they’d spend only $2M on him and Ibanez and that’s exactly what they did:

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports.....ZOKsrSeP6K

    When I saw the Yanks signed Ibanez to a $1.1M base deal I figured they probably want to re-sign Chavez for $900K base so they’d spend only $2M base on the two.

    ‘Glad Chavez is back on board.

    The bench is set: Cervelli, Chavez, Nunez, Jones.

    Romine will further develop playing every day in AAA.

    I say give Hughes the fifth starter job and tell him it’s his job to lose for a set rotation to go with a set starting nine and bench, this way the only question the Yanks have to answer in spring training is “Who will be the last man in the pen?”

  29. Chip February 22nd, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Non-Yankee question:

    If he opens the season pitching well – what (if any) team might entertain a trade for Johan Santana?

    He has 2 years at $50 mil remaining on his contract plus an option for a third year at $25 mil (which would likely have to be picked up given his full no trade clause)

    Would Boston be interested if the back of their rotation is scuffling in June and July?

  30. Patrick February 22nd, 2012 at 11:09 am

    Duh Innings,

    Yeah except Ibanez’s deal can go up to $4 million based on plate appearances.

  31. yankeefeminista February 22nd, 2012 at 11:09 am

    blake, there was some footage of Sanchez in that first camp blurb on YES Network.

    Do you mean tyanks? This actually was some guy who just taped endless footage and put it up; it was unedited but comprehension. Wish I knew how to find out if he is still filming this year. Think someone on Pinstripes Plus had linked it. 2010, I think. You’d think someone would be filming stuff in this day and age. Where are all you Tampa people?? Get to work! :mrgreen:

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

    There isn’t a point to his remark, unless it was to complain again. Nobody really wanted the trade, and, I think that includes Cashman. The fact remains, though that they needed a quality pitcher and he felt this was it. That trade has nothing to do with putting any pressure on Rodriguez or any other player.

    Don’t assume anything. I never said I liked the trade. Just because I don’t throw a temper tantrum doesn’t mean I like it. I can however see why the deal was made.

    Randy,

    I eat wild caught fish every day. Veggies. Pastured meat products like pastured ground beef and pastured chicken eggs. High Omega 3′s. Low omega 6′s. No dairy. No grain. No sugars. Low fruits/fructose. Cook with coconut oil. Drink green tea. Supplement with 20,000 IU’s vitamin D, and supplement with natural amino acid precursors of testosterone and HgH such as GABA, Arginine, Zinc, Vitamin D. Also take vitamin C along with the vitamin D for synthesis of serotonin.

    As an RD in training, of course my philosophy is that diet is the primary factor determining state of health and disease state. I’m open to scientifically evidenced alternative approaches to health.

    For instance, I could provide 33 citations of peer-reviewed research articles that prove the benefits of a paleolithic/ancestral diet common in hunter gather tribes of yesterday and today.

    What if the Mets picked up whatever he had left this season and split the $5.5 mil club option payout he’s do in 2014. That means the Sox would be on the hook for something like $45 mil over 2 1/2 years.

    Yeah but he’s still being paid $1.1M base + Chavez’s $900K base = $2M base for the two.

    I hoped the Yanks would spend no more than that on these two and that’s exactly what they did / I got : )

    That I mentioned $900K base to Chavez before the story broke means I’m a Yankee signing psychic LOL.

    Early this offseason I said I thought the Yanks should give Sabathia a new five-year deal with slightly more money per year (say $25M a year up from $23M) and I wasn’t off the mark: they tacked on a fifth year for $25M to his current contract. So I was just practicing my psychic powers then Carrie-style LOL.

    Actually my macronutrient breakdown is something like 60% fat, 30% protein, 10% carbs.

    My primary fuel is healthy fats. But the wrong kinds of fats oxidize, create free radicals and trigger inflammation/immune response…so you have to know what you’re doing. I take in a ton of cholesterol for cellular repair and to give my liver a lower workload. My blood vessels are healthy because I don’t consume refined carbohyrdates like sugar and HFCS…these molecules form AGE’s (Advanced Glycation End products) that damage blood vessels, trigger inflammation and create scars that dam up fats.

    As far as proteins go – amino acids are the building blocks of nearly every major molecule required for function. Without them, genes can’t transcribe the proteins that make hormones, neurotransmitters, antibodies and enzymes. So if you don’t eat enough essential amino acids or you’re deficient in them then you risk hormonal imbalance, imbalance in brain chemistry, immune imbalance and digestive imbalance.

    Randy,

    I eat wild caught fish every day. Veggies. Pastured meat products like pastured ground beef and pastured chicken eggs. High Omega 3?s. Low omega 6?s. No dairy. No grain. No sugars. Low fruits/fructose. Cook with coconut oil. Drink green tea. Supplement with 20,000 IU’s vitamin D, and supplement with natural amino acid precursors of testosterone and HgH such as GABA, Arginine, Zinc, Vitamin D. Also take vitamin C along with the vitamin D for synthesis of serotonin.

    As an RD in training, of course my philosophy is that diet is the primary factor determining state of health and disease state. I’m open to scientifically evidenced alternative approaches to health.

    For instance, I could provide 33 citations of peer-reviewed research articles that prove the benefits of a paleolithic/ancestral diet common in hunter gather tribes of yesterday and today.

    ————————

    Fruits are natural sugars with tons of fiber and vitamins. Bananas = potassium, orange = vitamin C etc. They also help you lose/maintain weight.

    You’re eating primarily two of the five food groups (meat and vegetables), a little of an essential third (fruits), barely a fourth (since the only dairy you eat is eggs from what I’ve read), red meat, and no chicken meat. Unhealthy.

    You’re chancing osteoperosis (sp?) by barely having any real calcium and vitamin D by eating just eggs, and heart disease by eating ground beef, the fattiest, most unhealthy of all meats and way too many eggs. Eggs should be eaten in moderation – I’d say four a week tops where you have two twice a week (say Sunday and Thursday.) ‘Nice thing about that is you’d need to buy a dozen eggs only once every three weeks since you’re having only 4 a week x 3 weeks.

    Also meat is the most unhealthy of all the food groups because get back to me when someone dies of a heart attack or cancer from eating too much fruit, vegetables, dairy, and grains. And aren’t you bored eating fish every day? Unless you have all kinds of fish which I’m guessing you do. Fish is cool cuz there are so many kinds: flounder, salmon, cod, sole etc.

    24oz. of fat free milk the healthiest milk and dairy by amount of cholesterol (8oz. every meal) a day will not hurt you. I agree with no grains as grains are a waste since you can get plenty of fiber and vitamins in fruits and vegetables.

    Other than berries, most fruits are cultivated and their carbohyrdate/micronutrient ratio is unnaturally high.

    Two food groups exist because of lobbying efforts of the grain and dairy industries. We as a species existed for hundreds of thousands of years without those food groups. So I would say we must have done something right and benefited from the fish, seafood, wild game, nuts, berries, wild plants. It’s not like that stuff is unhealthy.

    I get plenty of calcium when I eat fish bones in sardines and green leafy vegetables. We didn’t become HomoErectus due to lack of dairy.

    It’s a cost thing. It’s a lot cheaper to use processed meats and cheeses (like subway does) where a sandwich costs them little enough that they can afford to sell it at $5 and still turn a profit than to use healthy stuff and expect people to shell out $8.

    The key to any diet (as I’m learning) is moderation.

    I’m 6’4″ and weighed 280 for pretty much the last 10 years. Trying to avoid knee problems, back problems and other health issues as I enter my mid 30′s I’ve cut back on carbs significantly (going for things like mashed cauliflower and spaghetti squash and faro instead of mashed potatoes, pasta and rice and basically just cut back on the portions and upped my workout routine to 30 mins everyday – and I’ve dropped nearly 15 pounds in a month. Do I miss a bag of pretzels? Sure. But homemade turkey jerky or homemade parmasean cheese crisps are pretty damned satisfying too.

    I try to divide my diet into three categories .. protein/carb/fat. 40/40/20

    Then for carbs, 50% of them should be from non-starchy vegetables, 25% from fruit and 25% from starches.

    Spot on, YF.

    If you’re too much of an “end-gainer” and can’t suspend that, and can’t stand the silence of being totally in the present, can’t set aside your fictions, self-story and objects you are normally in pursuit of – like meditation, you won’t be able to “do” yoga.

    It’s the reverse of “competing” and “pushing”, as you point out. It’s risking just being, and being interested in disinterested discovery, and “listening” with right-brain intuition (what quantum mechanics tells us is the ground of all being).

    Too much of a designer mentality has grabbed and run with yoga as a marketing ploy. If you’re peeking at the other guy or gal to see if their bow is “better” than yours, you’re done. You’ve missed thewhole point, and you’ve missed the adventure and health benefits, which are slow and steady. You barely notice them, but then the expansion just seems to magically arrive. Kind of like watching the sun rise, or a flower open. You can’t do it; your focus waxes and wanes, but suddenly the sun is up, the flower’s petals are open; so you have been “allowing” something, rather than “doing’ something…

    1. eat food – if your grandmother wouldn’t recognize it as food, don’t eat it.
    2. just less of it.
    3. less red meat, and more fish, and plants.

    ID, I figured you were quoting the Times article. There are pros and cons to everything. Running isn’t good for you either or bulking up. All things have their qualifiers, and if you are an overly rigorous Yogi or someone who isn’t in good health, sure like with anything, there is risk.

  132. GreenBeret7 February 22nd, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    Yes….The Yanks now have the first name on the baseball register.

  133. blake February 22nd, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    RAB has a good post up about the draft and the new CBA and about the amount the Yanks will have to spend in the first 10 rounds……

    One thing I didn’t know was that when if you draft and don’t sign a player you still lose the slotted amount for that pick and can’t use it elsewhere…….however you can draft players (like college seniors ) who you can sign cheaply and then save some money for other picks.

    The new CBA sucks…..but their will be some areas to cheat it I guess.

    Pruf, the endgamer thing is the issue. And kind of the opposite of the point. Like the Yogi the Times interviews in the article says, “It’s ego,” he said. “The whole point of yoga is to get rid of ego.” Kind of a given.

  136. Irreverent Discourse February 22nd, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    yankeefem – Aye, it was a good read :) It seemed they were implying that even simple stretches that may not hurt at the time you are doing them can have long term, painful ramifications. Separated enough that people fail to equate the pain with the Yoga they are doing.

    Obviously anyone can hurt themselves from over-extending themselves in a workout in one manner or another. This seemed to imply that that extra effort may not even be necessary to hurt yourself through Yoga.

    LMAO. You’re just a little over protective of this, aren’t you?You’d think that I was insulting your best little buddy. The Knicks might make the post season, but, so will just about half of the NBA. They’re not exactly the ’73 Knicks.

    Indeed :D.

    I think a good analogy is when a player is “in the zone” – not thinking, at one with his activity, full engagement, etc. That’s a kind of yoga. My dad golfed that way; none of him was missing from what he was engaged in. It’s being the activity. Great athletes, great dancers, etc. are often in that place, I’d say. They call it “letting the game come to me.”

    That is awful.

    Yoga is a lot safer. Half of Yoga is being there to respond to what your body’s saying back to you in the poses. If you don’t listen, sure, you can get hurt. But not listening is not doing yoga. It is not a “body” thing solely.

    ID, I think that the article cautions people who do yoga to be aware that it may not be as benign as you think; that’s a good thing. So, I would just say awareness is your friend. Obviously someone with unstretched muscles who tries to push it can hurt him/herself. Also, some yoga’s are gentler than others. A person who isn’t in optimum shape shouldn’t be trying kundalini yoga or holding poses for very long. But playing sports and other forms of activity, for instance even cycling have their red flags as well, especially if you keep playing/riding etc w/an “asymmetrical” body; however, we all have our little physical quirks/imperfections, so… being alive is a risk.

  149. yankeefeminista February 22nd, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    Jeter would be a good yogi. He has that crazy flexibility. And Mo has the perfect disposition for yoga, but because he has it so deeply within him, he doesn’t even need to do yoga. :)

    I have a friend who had a 3rd eye “incident” while driving. Nearly totalled his car. Kundalini is NOT for everyone, to say the least. Even “in shape” people should be wary; you open that 3rd eye before you’re ready for that, that would not be a good thing.

    I think Hatha, with the right attitude going in, is eminently safe. The “weekend warrior” type mentality could abuse even this, though, and get hurt.

    You only talk about the “facts” as you see them. Go back and read your comments about the game the other night. You blamed that game on everything but, Lin’s poor shooting, poor decisions and bad defense. Mostly, you turned to the old standby….poor officiating. Right now, Lin is the new toy that you’re playing with. What are you going to do when he bombs out? Find a new toy?

    I bought a pair of Philippe Model shoes in Paris that ultimately proved to be too small for my feet. I am always doing that. They were chestnut brown flats, as sleek as the Concorde, and I got charmed somehow into thinking they would stretch.
