Cashman: Jeter will play March 10

Tweet [1]

Brian Cashman just said the Yankees plan to have Derek Jeter in a game at DH on or around March 10.

Other notes from Cashman:

– He corrected a previous email to me. Turns out Francisco Cervelli is out of options. Cashman said he realized yesterday that he had told me the wrong thing earlier this winter. I told him I clearly need to get a better source.

– Matt Diaz and Juan Rivera are heavy favorites for the right-handed outfield role. The Yankees do not want a young guy in that role.

– Dellin Betances will open the season as a Triple-A starter.

– Phil Hughes will do three to five days of pool work before picking up a ball.
