• Nunez will wear a special batting glove to protect the bruised area between his thumb and wrist. He came through batting practice with no problems today.

• Austin Romine, who’s been out with a sore back, will do tee and toss and play catch today. It’s his first baseball work since being shutdown with the injury early in camp.

• Mariano Rivera is actually scheduled to pitch today. He was incorrectly listed on the Yankees pitching schedule yesterday.

• Brad Meyers threw batting practice this morning, facing Colin Curtis and Brandon Laird. The Rule 5 pick was a long-shot for a long-relief job, but his shoulder injury has kept him out of games which might have destroyed any slim chance of making the team.

• Manny Delcarmen (strained lat) will throw a bullpen tomorrow. CC Sabathia, Adam Warren, Michael Pineda and Phil Hughes are also throw bullpens tomorrow.

• George Kontos (sore oblique) is scheduled to pitch in tomorrows game.

• Todays available pitchers: Hiroki Kuroda, Mariano Rivera, Cory Wade, Boone Logan, Dellin Betances, Juan Cedeno, Mike O’Connor, George Kontos and Pat Venditte.

• Todays second string: C Jose Gil, 1B Jorge Vazquez, 2B Doug Bernier, SS Jayson Nix, 3B Bill Hall, LF Cole Garner, CF Dewayne Wise, RF Chris Dickerson, DH Colin Curtis
