The Yankees are taking a half day tomorrow. They’ll work out briefly in the morning, then they’ll leave the ballpark for Joe Girardi’s mysterious team outing. On Friday, the team is playing an exhibition game against South Florida.
That leaves today as the final full workout before Saturday’s Grapefruit League opener.
“It’s been four months,” Curtis Granderson said yesterday. “We’ve got to remember it and fine tune it. I get it for a pitch and lose it for a pitch. I get it for a batting practice, and I lose it for a batting practice. The best thing is, it’s February 20 something, and it’s a leap year, so you get one extra day.”
Today is that extra day.
