There’s a chance the Yankees will announce some roster decisions now that today’s game has ended. For now, here are a few quick things…
• Turns out, Brian Cashman and Co. knew what they were doing with the David Adams decision. Adams became a free agent today and re-signed a minor league deal with the Yankees. I was as stunned as anyone when the Yankees announced the release — in fact, I felt certain someone had misspoken — but it worked out.
• Mark Teixeira said yesterday that he will visit the Yankees team doctor on Monday, and he’s hoping the brace will come off his right wrist soon after, maybe even immediately after. Today, Teixeira was going through one-handed fielding drills at first base, and he’s hoping to take two-handed swings in two weeks. He’s been swinging with only his left hand since Sunday. Teixeira believes he could be in a game as early as May 1.
• No real news here, but Cashman said once again that Derek Jeter will not do any baseball activity until Monday. The chances of Jeter actually being activated on April 6 seem incredibly slim.
• In case you missed it, the Yankees beat the Nationals 4-2. Andy Pettitte allowed two runs — one earned — through six inning, and Joba Chamberlain, Dave Robertson and Mariano Rivera closed the game with a scoreless inning each. Robinson Cano and Vernon Wells each doubled. Kevin Youkilis hit his sixth spring homer.
