The Yankees first full workout is over. So far, so good.
Of the guys I saw, Eric Chavez was the star of the show in batting practice. He went deep on his first swing and kept hitting line drives and homers. Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano drove the ball pretty well, and Derek Jeter was lining the ball to all fields. Too early to mean anything?
“It’s way too early,” Joe Girardi said.
Of course it is. Can’t really take anything from a first day of batting practice, but it did feel like real spring training again. And Girardi said no one got hurt today, so that’s a positive.
Alex Rodriguez is about to address the media. That’s how we’ll wrap up this Saturday.
