Pregame notes: Nunez anxious to get back

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Notes on Mar 11, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Eduardo Nunez looked like a man ready to hit. He was standing at his locker with a bat in his hand, but that’s as close as he’ll get to batting practice. He joked that he keeps his bat with him just so the bat will know he still loves it and hasn’t abandoned it.

“I want to play,” Nunez said. “I’m excited to play. I want to show I’m ready to go, (but) I don’t want to rush anything. I don’t want to play two, three games and go back again to the DL.”

Nunez’s sore right hand feels better than it did six days ago, but it’s still tender. He tried to take batting practice yesterday and had to shut it down. Nunez said a doctor is coming to the field to re-examine him today, but tests have already shown nothing serious. He was hit by a pitch on Monday, and it’s just taking longer than expected for the soreness to go away.

“That’s weird because everything says negative,” Nunez said. “The doctors say I’m fine, but it still hurts a lot, and the doctor is coming back today to see me… It feels better, but it’s coming slow.”

Nunez admitted feeling a little bit worried, but mostly he just seems anxious. He worked out a lot this winter with Robinson Cano and Albert Pujols. He looks stronger, said he feels faster, and he wants to show that he’s a better player than he was a year ago. Right now, though, he’s just waiting. And keeping his bat company.

• Pretty thin clubhouse today. The guys who are traveling to Fort Myers were already gone by the time the clubhouse opened. Joe Girardi is making the trip and Tony Pena will manage the game at home.

• Dave Robertson walked into the clubhouse with no crutches this morning. His right foot is still in a walking boot, but he was moving pretty easily. This is supposed to be his last day in the boot.

• George Kontos threw another bullpen today and threw a few pitches with Larry Rothschild standing in the batters box like a hitter. Kontos will throw batting practice on Tuesday and could get into a game after that. He’s been out with an oblique injury.

• Today’s other sides: Manny Banuelos, D.J. Mitchell and Freddy Garcia.

• Tomorrow’s sides: Brad Meyers, Matt Daley, Joba Chamberlain, Brett Marshall and David Phelps.

• J.R. Murphy will play third base off the bench in the road game against the Twins. He’s played that position in the past but this will be his first time in big league camp. With Jose Gil playing first base in the home game and Gary Sanchez DHing in the road game, a total of seven Yankees catchers will play in some capacity today. That’s not counting Ryan Baker and Jeff Farnham, a pair of minor league catchers called up to help catch bullpens today.

• Several minor league guys were called up to play off the bench today. Most of them went on the road to play against the Twins.

HOME
vs. Phillies

• Available pitchers: CC Sabathia, Mariano Rivera, Cory Wade, Boone Logan, Clay Rapada, Chase Whitley, Kevin Whelan, Michael O’Connor and Craig Heyer.

• Second string: C Gustavo Molina, 1B Jose Gil, 2B David Adams, SS Doug Bernier, 3B Kevin Russo, LF Cole Garner, CF Justin Maxwell, RF Austin Krum, DH Colin Curtis

• Extra players on the bench: C Mitch Abeita, UT Addison Maruszak, UT Ronnier Mustelier, OF Abe Almonte

ROAD
at Twins

• Available pitchers: Phil Hughes, Adam Warren, Graham Stoneburner, Adam Miller, Juan Cedeno, Cesar Cabral, Ryan Pope, Josh Romanski and Ryan Flannery

• Second string: C. Kyle Higashioka, 1B Luke Murton, 2B Corban Joseph, SS Walter Ibarra, 3B J.R. Murphy, LF Zoilo Almonte, CF Melky Mesa, RF Ray Kruml, DH Gary Sanchez

• Extra players off the bench: INF Jose Pirela and OF Dan Brewer. The Yankees aren’t carrying any additional catchers on the road, but Higashioka, Murphy and Sanchez give them plenty of depth there for the day.

    Go Hughes and C! Go Yanks!

  2. Crawdaddy March 11th, 2012 at 10:51 am

    Nunez needs to stay patient because that hand of his is going to feel some level of pain for a good while.

  3. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 10:53 am

    Hope Nunez is OK. JR is playing 3rd in the Hughes’ game. Saw him play it at Lakewood for Charleston, but don’t him seeing any balls there. Excited to see him hit today.

    repost

    “Luckily, Pineda probably doesn’t read American Newspapers.”

    Good point!

    :)

    William Randolph Hearst would be proud of some of the stuff that comes out on a daily basis.

    There really should be such a huge caveat emptor for readers with a semblance of intelligence.

    One of the things that used to drive me crazy about Betsy is that she would religiously read what numerous writers had to say and then go crazy about it!

    If you’re someone who has no access to any visual broadcasts, then I might see the need to hunt down news stories – but then, just that. news stories. Not some columnists take on “reality”. Try an AP or UPI rendition of the game. You can usually count on that. And then read what Chad has to say.

    Otherwise, focus on the television/computer screen in front of you and watch the darned game!

  7. randy l. March 11th, 2012 at 11:06 am

    “Still a secondary concern, Pineda’s velocity ticks up slightly”

    with this headline, chad himself fans the flames a bit with pineda.

    it’s accurate though, so what’s the big deal.

    if pineda has difficulty with everyone asking him what’s wrong with his fastball or something else that pops up ( which it will), triple a is a really god place to get out of the spotlight if necessary.

    so far pineda has handled things well. he’s going to be asked hundreds of questions about his velocity in his next start. we’ll see a bit about how well he handles the spotlight this next week.

  8. mick March 11th, 2012 at 11:09 am

    why the fixation with pineda?

  9. mick March 11th, 2012 at 11:11 am

    why read the Post or News?

  10. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Insecurity?

  11. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:13 am

    A case of nerves?

  12. mick March 11th, 2012 at 11:13 am

    seekers of the truth watch the games and make their own judgments.
    seekers of gossip read the rags.

  13. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 11:13 am

    Randy, isn’t Cash himself fanning the flames re: Pineda’s velocity by speaking out about his concerns (Daily News today)? Cash does talk a lot

    As for adding a new pitch affecting your others… A lot of players have worked on the changeup when they are rehabbing from an injury, so they are pretty much solely focusing on the change vs. trying to learn it in ST while getting their other pitches up to speed. That is how Betances learned his change, when he was coming back from his surgery–he just worked exclusively on that pitch. And so did Shields when he was rehabbing from a shoulder injury way back in 2002. Neftali is another pitcher who will be trying to integrate the change and become a 3 pitch pitcher this year, like Pineda, he too was throwing it a little too hard last year.

    Sanchez at DH. Hope to see a couple of those AB’s as well.

  14. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:14 am

    An undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of underdone potato. More of gravy than of grave?

  15. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:16 am

    “seekers of the truth watch the games and make their own judgments.”

    And if they don’t get to watch, they read any kind of update on what actually happened in the game, i.e., the game highlights.

  16. tomingeorgia March 11th, 2012 at 11:17 am

    trisha,
    bah, humbug.

  17. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:18 am

    tom – bravo!

    :)

  18. mick March 11th, 2012 at 11:21 am

    And don’t think the Yankees aren’t at least somewhat concerned about it. Cashman said he looked back on the research the Yankees did before acquiring him, and found evidence on Fangraphs.com that Pineda’s velocity would increase significantly after the first couple of innings.

    =======================================================
    For the gossip mongers , the above paragraph was buried about 3/4′s of the way into the “story” and I use that word literally.

    You see if they led with that, THERE WOULD BE NO STORY.

    Just another slow news day…

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:23 am

    “As for the O’s, what are the odds of having two RHP prospects both named Bundy in your top five? :)

    As long as there’s no relation to the notorious Ted, it’s probably an okay sign!

    :)

  20. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:25 am

    mick, we all should have figured out by now that slow news days produce some, er, provocative stories.

    Probably bonuses in the checks of those whose, er, provocative stories elicit the highest readership.

    :roll:

  21. randy l. March 11th, 2012 at 11:26 am

    “Randy, isn’t Cash himself fanning the flames re: Pineda’s velocity by speaking out about his concerns (Daily News today)? Cash does talk a lot…”

    yankee feminista-

    i’d say so simply because it gives a writer something to write about.

    on the other hand, he seems like he’s being sincere in what he’s saying .
    i don’t know what to make of the new cashman who talks a lot.
    it’s probably less dysfunctional to be more transparent.

    i believe that any new athletic skill bleeds into old skills , so i like the crash course in learning a new skill and then time to assimilate it into the old.

    sometimes a thought or way to do something works at first because it’s a balance for something that’s wrong. as you keep doing it, it becomes too much of an adjustment. so there is a back and forth that takes place as a new skill is integrated.

    a time recovering from injury is a god time to learn something new because there’s plenty of time.
    the problem pineda has is he has no luxury of time. he’s going to have to hit the ground running.

    it’s possible he can pull it off though. i just think there would be a higher probability of him learning the change under more favorable conditions.

  22. tomingeorgia March 11th, 2012 at 11:27 am

    trisha,
    Is at least one of them named Al? Haven’t seen much of him lately. If he’s hiding out, the O’s minor leagues would be a good place.

  23. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:32 am

    I’m not Irish, but if someone here is, can you answer this for me. Isn’t St. Paddy’s day March 17th of every year? If it is, is there a special reason for early celebrations this year? At least in my state, there have already been parades, and I just read that some organization is having a St. Paddy’s corn beef and cabbage dinner today. Is this maybe a special anniversary for St. Patrick – like a multi-centennial or something?

    Just wondering.

  24. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:33 am

    “trisha,
    Is at least one of them named Al? Haven’t seen much of him lately. If he’s hiding out, the O’s minor leagues would be a good place”

    :lol:

    You’re really on today!

  25. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:34 am

    I think I’ll tune into the Knicks pregame to see whether Chandler will be back today and see what else of interest they might have.

    BBL

    :)

  26. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 11:44 am

    Randy, whether or not Cash is sincere, I see nothing wrong with his wanting to protect his player. It is clear that he has wanted to temper expectations all along. He probably has learned that SP’s are not grown on trees. Unlike what he once thought with Joba, Hughes and IPK. At least he is learning… But it is interesting to watch Cash dole out the nurture with some and tough love with others.

    Trisha, yeah, definitely not Al. One’s named Dylan, and I forget the other Bundy’s name.

  27. GreenBeret7 March 11th, 2012 at 11:44 am

    St. Patrick’s Day is always 17 March,

  28. Cashmoney March 11th, 2012 at 11:47 am

    Morning all.
    Yoenis Cespedes looked really good in his debut. I was impressed by a quick bat, easy power and his plate discipline.

  29. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 11:50 am

    Cash, first 2 we knew about, the plate discipline was the surprise for me.

  30. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 11:51 am

    We’ll see Wang pitch vs. Pineda on Thursday, assuming he goes on his 5th day. Guess he is fighting for the 5th spot in the Nationals’ rotation.

  31. randy l. March 11th, 2012 at 11:51 am

    “Unlike what he once thought with Joba, Hughes and IPK. At least he is learning”

    i think what he’s doing with banuelos shows this the most.

    now that montero is gone, manny is the one i’m watching now in the minors.

    i love the monterrey mexico connection. there is a huge baseball history there.

    when i was a kid the monterey little league team was the talk of my neighborhood when they won the little league world series out of nowhere . their players were like half the size of the kids they beat.

  32. randy l. March 11th, 2012 at 11:53 am

    “We’ll see Wang pitch vs. Pineda on Thursday,”

    there will be a message from the baseball gods in that one if it happens.

  33. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 11:58 am

    GB, thanks. I just couldn’t figure out why the early stuff was going on here. I just don’t ever remember the day being celebrated before the 17th, especially with it coming on a Saturday this year (parades, etc.)

  34. Cashmoney March 11th, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    YF, aside from some youtube vid i knew next to nothing to the guy… but his abs yesterday was very impressive and reaffirms some of talent he demonstrated in those videos. I was very impressed by how fast he turned on a hanger on the upper outer quadrant and lift it to LF with a flick of his wrist. His swing looks little long but pretty level to me, also, he looks to have good plate coverage. anywho, stay tuned.

  35. Cashmoney March 11th, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    **about the guy**

  36. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    randy, very like. Supposedly Wang pitched two good innings and then his sinker wasn’t sinking. He got in trouble but would have had a DP if DeRosa hadn’t flubbed it. I wish all good things for Chien Ming. Love and miss him.

    I’ve loved watching Manny progress and get his CB to where it is today. People complain about his size, and he may be short but he is strong as a bull. And I love his fearless, attack mode mentality. If he isn’t pitching that way, he isn’t right. And he was born with command. I just wish I still have him and Dellin to watch every game. Guess I will be making quite a few road trips. Manny turns 21 in 2 days. The reason I know is his birthday is right next to mine. He is getting old, unlike me. ;)

  37. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    still *had him and Dellin

  38. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    GB, I read back through last night’s thread. Yes, thanks, I knew that remark last night wasn’t for me, but for one of our resident trolls.

    Rosy, yes, I listened to the beginning of Paxton’s entrance, and then went to sleep, right around the time Jesus came out of the game. Good showing by your kid pitching prospects. Hope you get to see Taijuan in Tacoma and the others pitch live soon.

  39. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    Is Mo pitching second after C today?

  40. Sunstealer73 March 11th, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    If you have DirecTV with SportsPack, the Hughes start will be on 668 (Twins feed). Too much good on at 1:00 today: two Yankees games and the ACC final!

  41. UnKnown March 11th, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    Yes I will be getting the Twins game here on local cable, so I will be giving updates on how Sir Hughes is looking.

  42. Villa Nova-Ya March 11th, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    Like everything else, the early St. Paddy’s Day parades probably have to do with making money. Smaller towns can have their parades on the non-day, make their money.

    That and, well, there are only so many bagpipers to go around! :)

  43. J. Alfred Prufrock March 11th, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    I’m definitely paying more attention to Hughes today on MLB.com rather than C’s game.

    Sanchez is in that one, too, although as the DH, unfortunately.

  44. Villa Nova-Ya March 11th, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    yankeefeminista -

    I watched Manny B on the replay the other night. He looked solid to me and not as young, if you know what I mean. And he looked poised. Some of those pitches he threw were n-i-c-e. Looking forward to him having a bounce back year, as well as Dellin. I think they had a lot of growing pains last season.

  45. RadioKev March 11th, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    How about yours?

  46. J. Alfred Prufrock March 11th, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Rosy, yes, I listened to the beginning of Paxton’s entrance, and then went to sleep, right around the time Jesus came out of the game. Good showing by your kid pitching prospects. Hope you get to see Taijuan in Tacoma and the others pitch live soon.
    ///

    We may not hear from Rosy for a while. She and the state of Washington are likely in disaster mode following Montero’s appearance behind the plate yesterday.

  47. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    I’ll be mostly paying attention to the Hughes start today on the little (computer) screen. Also have to watch my NHL NBC game, which starts in about ten minutes. I will peek in at C as well, but he is a big boy and doesn’t need our help. Would like to get a look at Mo though. Always feel better after I see him. FTR, there is a YES replay of the C game at 7PM.

  48. GreenBeret7 March 11th, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    Villa Nova-Ya March 11th, 2012 at 12:21 pm

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

    You’ve never been to Savannah, Ga on St. Paddy’s Day, then. 4th largest parade in the country. Bands, pipers from Ireland…most from County Cork. In Savannah, everybody’s Irish that week. If you don’t play the pipes, you’re an outcast.

  49. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    Home cooking, Chandler, and team D helping the Knicks today! Melo hitting hits 3′s.

    May it last!

  50. J. Alfred Prufrock March 11th, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    I’m surprised there’s a YES replay on Sunday. I guess the Nets are off.

  51. tomingeorgia March 11th, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    If anybody besides me has Dish TV, the Hughes game is on 436.

  52. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    We were always Irish on St. Paddy’s day. My mom always made us a huge corned beef and cabbage dinner. And I love good Irish soda bread.

    Since mom’s not here anymore, I spend each year searching for great corned beef and cabbage. Haven’t found it yet.

  53. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    Villa, wonder if Manny will revert to his previous delivery if it is affecting his fastball command. Hoping no blisters or other early nagging injuries this year for him and Dellin. I look for them to both progress, and Dellin to throw his changeup more. Also I am looking forward to the Yanks taking off the training wheels and keeping them in when they get out of the occasional (rare as it is) jam. I am not liking all the road tripping they will be doing. Ah, if only we had had SWB in Newark… Although SWB as nomads is slightly exaggerated b/c they do get 37(?) games at Rochester and a few more at Batavia. Will you make it to some of the LHV games? Opening two games are there. I hope to make it to one of those and one in Trenton at the least.

  54. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    J Al – I thought YES always had a replay. It’s never done me any good because I’m out of market. :(

    But I can get all the Sux replays I could ever want!

    :mad:

    What’s the longest successful shot anyone has ever seen at the buzzer? It doesn’t have to be the final buzzer?

    What’s the longest successful shot anyone has ever seen to win a game?

    It can be college or pro.

  57. tomingeorgia March 11th, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    trisha,
    Corned beef and cabbage doesn’t take a master chef to make. Try doing it yourself!

  58. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    My WCS (west coast sister) has her own blog where she does constant updates. It is really very good, in case anyone wants to catch up on Mariners news of any kind.

  59. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    We’ve never celebrated St. P’s day, but I inadvertently happened upon a St. P’s parade yesterday, everyone wearing green. It was disorienting because an unusual event for me. Seeing all the green, all I could think about was the Celtics. Guess living in New England for a stretch does that to one.

  60. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    tom – I’m talking good corned beef and cabbage. Like my mom used to make.

    My cooking skills are nonexistent so I wouldn’t even try. But I continue to try out all the local restaurants every year.

  61. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:43 pm

    Trish, yes I have checked out Rosy’s blog, but will remind myself to do so in the future.

  62. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    YF, well the only we we celebrated St. Paddy’s day was with the corned beef and cabbage and Irish soda bread. It’s the Italian in me – total food orientation.

    :)

  63. J. Alfred Prufrock March 11th, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    trisha,

    Sunday games don’t get replayed in 7 p.m. slots during the season. The replays are the next morning, maybe late Sunday night, too, I forget, but the day games aren’t re-aired in the early evening slot on Sundays.

  64. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    trisha, I would think Providence area wouldn’t have much in the way of good corned beef…

  65. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    What I learned in the Knicks pregame: Knicks have the 2nd most turnovers in the NBA. Sixers have the fewest.

    Imagine if…

  66. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    Pruf, usually late after the Nets games, but same on Sundays in the summers. I recall going to Sunday day games and arriving home in time to watch the 11 o’clock-ish YES replays.

  67. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    YF – true. :) But boy they can dish out pasta, especially on the Hill.

  68. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    trisha, I miss Providence. Need to go up there soon.

  69. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 12:48 pm

    J Al – yeah, I meant I thought they always had a replay. I wasn’t sure of exactly when.

    Again, it’s never benefitted me. Well I take that back. It might be when MSG had the broadcast that I got to see replays. Or if YES ever did it, they took it away at some point.

  70. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2012 at 12:50 pm

    On DTV, aren’t the replays free even if you don’t have the package? I never should have taken down my dish. I miss having NESN for college hockey. :(

  71. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 11th, 2012 at 12:50 pm

    YF, just tell me when. We can do the Providence experience together. We can even add WaterFire if you want. I know people absolutely love that. I don’t know whether it’s because I’m type A or am not crazy about sitting on the ground that long, but it’s not one of my fav things to do. But I’d do it if you wanted to!

    yankeefeminista -

    I’ve got some traveling to do next month, so I may or may not be able to make those opening games.

    I think if the Yankees are looking for the Bs to be making a contribution by 2013, the training wheels need to be off, for sure. Hoping for no set-backs. As difficult as it was to see them struggle with control last year, I do look at the positive side of that – which is, they do have to work through it which makes them better at the end of the day. It’ll be fun. Wish they’d let them stay in AA for the consistency of having a home field, but they really do need to be in AAA.

    Gotta figure, if those AAA guys can get through a season on the road, they can get through anything.

    Nice team game by the Knicks today. Having Chandler back hasn’t hurt, that’s for sure.

    8 Knick turnovers already. Those hurt.

    Time to fire up the computer for the Y’s game.

    11 points on 9 Knicks turnovers.

    Imagine if…

    A game to watch for this spring? Girardi wants to bring Mason Williams to the Big Camp to play in a few games this spring to take a look. No date, yet.

    Trisha, yes, thanks. I will let you know if I can tear myself away. I used to go up often even once I’d finished my degree, but my sched with both work and baseball is always a bit crazy. I am hoping to combine trip with doing some Alum stuff I occasionally do, but not sure when. I will keep you posted. I do always go to Newport in the summer though. If I can go for a few extra days we can always go see a PawSux game together.

    I’ve never done waterfire, but it sounds like it would be exhilarating.
