TODAY’S SCHEDULED RELIEVERS:

READING BETWEEN THE LINES: With Scott Baker, Kyle Davies and Bryan Mitchell each cut from big league camp, and both Chase Whitley and Esmil Rogers pitching out of the bullpen this afternoon, it seems safe to assume Adam Warren has locked up the No. 5 starter. We’ve assumed that for days, but the evidence keeps mounting.

TEIXEIRA UPDATE: Mark Teixeira was hit by a pitch at the minor league complex today. The Yankees announced that he has a right knee contusion and will be getting ice treatment with no further tests scheduled.

UPDATE, 1:18 p.m.: That’s a routine 5-3 ground out, except Alex Rodriguez was the 3 and not the 5.

UPDATE, 1:35 p.m.: Little charging play on a ground ball to the right side. Rodriguez fielded it, bobbled it briefly, and made a kind of tricky throw to get the out. Not a bad play.

UPDATE, 1:51 p.m.: Solo homer by Chase Headley, who’s impressive spring continues. It’s a 1-0 Yankees lead in the top of the third.

UPDATE, 2:20 p.m.: Alex Rodriguez is out of the game after four innings. Looks like he’s fine. He’s currently sitting with the coaches outside the dugout. He’s not in the trainer’s room or anything. Also, the Yankees are now up 3-0. Rodriguez singled, Refsnyder walked and Slade Heathcott stayed hot with an RBI single in the fourth.

Pregame notes: Gregorius confident wrist will be just fine

Didi Gregorius

Didi Gregorius stood at his locker flexing his left wrist this morning. He said it already feels better than it did last night, and he’s confident he’ll be ready for Opening Day.

“It’s good right now,” Gregorius said. “I can move it really good.”

Gregorius wore a brace to bed last night, but he had it off this morning. He said he’ll go through typical treatment today, and he thinks playing in a game Wednesday is reasonable.

By the way, he still hasn’t seen the play that hurt him.

“I felt it,” he said. “So I already know how it is.”

Scott Baker• The Yankees have released Scott Baker but hope to re-sign him for their Triple-A rotation. The team had to either let Baker go or pay him a retention bonus. He pitched his way into the conversation for a long relief job, but it seems yesterday’s rough second inning wiped out that opportunity.

• Kyle Davies has been reassigned to minor league camp, and Bryan Mitchell has been optioned to Triple-A. Both will jump into the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre rotation, Brian Cashman said. Without Baker, Davies or Mitchell, it seems Chase Whitley is the standout candidate if the Yankees choose to carry a second long reliever.

• Cashman said more cuts will come after today’s game.

• Released just a few days ago, reliever Jared Burton is still in Yankees camp and has re-signed a minor league contract. He was pitching well before getting hurt early in camp. Said he’s supposed to resume playing catch today.

• Although Cashman stopped well short of calling Jacob Lindgren a favorite for a roster spot, he said there’s a reason he’s still pitching in major league games this late in camp. Seems Lindgren still has a legitimate chance to break camp with the team.

• High-end prospects Eric Jagielo, Aaron Judge and Mason Williams are up from minor league camp for the day.

RomineToday’s second string: C Austin Romine, 1B Francisco Arcia, 2B Cole Figueroa, SS Nick Noonan, 3B Erig Jagielo, LF none, CF Mason Williams, RF Aaron Judge

Today’s scheduled relievers: Esmil Rogers, Chase Whitley, Chasen Shreve, Jose Ramirez, Nick Rumbelow, Danny Burawa

• Tuesday’s travel squad to Ft. Myers:

Pitchers: Danny Burawa, Jacob Lindgren, Chris Martin, Jose Ramirez, Nick Rumbelow, Masahiro Tanaka
Catchers: Francisco Arcia, Kyle Higashioka, John Ryan Murphy, Eddy Rodriguez, Austin Romine
Infielders: Cole Figueroa, Jonathan Galvez, Garrett Jones, Nick Noonan, Rob Refsnyder, Brendan Ryan

Refsnyder, Severino named Yankees’ top minor leaguers for 2014

Robert Refsnyder

Before today’s game, the Yankees named Rob Refsnyder and Luis Severino their Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Year for last season. Their past four players of the year: Greg Bird, Tyler Austin, Austin Romine and Eduardo Nunez. Their past four pitchers of the year: Shane Greene, Mark Montgomery, D.J. Mitchell and David Phelps. That’s a pretty wide spectrum of success following the honor. From the Yankees, here are the details of today’s honorees:

RefsnyderSeverino (2)The New York Yankees announced today that infielder Rob Refsnyder and right-handed pitcher Luis Severino were named winners of the 2014 Kevin Lawn Award as the Yankees’ minor league “Player of the Year” and “Pitcher of the Year,” respectively. The two players received their awards prior to today’s Yankees vs. Orioles game at George M. Steinbrenner Field.

The annual awards are dedicated to Kevin O’Brien Lawn—the son of longtime Yankees Vice President and Chief of Operations Jack Lawn—who passed away in 1999.

Refsnyder, 24, split the season with Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, combining to bat .318 (164-for-515) with 82R, 38 doubles, 6 triples, 14HR and 63RBI in 137 games. The 2012 fifth-round draft pick ranked third among all Yankees minor leaguers in batting average. Following the season, he was tabbed an Organization All-Star by MiLB.com and ranked as the Yankees’ seventh-best prospect by Baseball America.

Severino, 21, combined to go 6-5 with a 2.46 ERA (113.1IP, 31ER) in 24 starts with Single-A Charleston, Single-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton. He allowed three earned runs or fewer in 23 of his 24 starts, posting a 1.96 ERA (110.0IP, 24ER) in those games. The right-hander led all Yankee minor leaguers in strikeouts (127) and competed for the World Team in the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game. Following the season, he was named an Organization All-Star by MiLB.com and was tabbed the Yankees’ best prospect by Baseball America.

Each player was presented with a trophy designed by C&C Awards, as well as a designer watch, courtesy of Betteridge Jewelers.

Postgame notes: “Y’all can put stock in whatever you want”

CC Sabathia

Given the option of facing a divisional opponent or pitching in a minor league game, CC Sabathia chose the minor leagues. Then he went to the complex, gave up a long home run on his first pitch, and allowed a three-run home run two innings later.

While Sabathia insists he feels better than he’s felt in years, he’s already allowed five home runs in three spring outings and his official 11.57 ERA — which doesn’t count today’s four runs in five innings — is the highest on the team.

“I don’t give a (darn) what stock they put in it,” Sabathia said, using a word far more racy than darn. “It is what it is. I’ve had spring trainings where I’ve given up a lot of runs and went out and had a good season. I’ve had spring trainings like last year where I didn’t give up no runs, and I gave up five in the first game. Y’all can put stock in whatever you want. I’m not really worried about it.”

SabathiaSabathia is defiant that this spring has left him feeling confident. He’s said his surgically repaired right knee feels strong, and his velocity has been legitimately higher than in recent springs. He’s consistently reaching 92-93 mph with his fastball, and his offspeed pitches have been good if not consistent.

“You look at his stuff,” Joe Girardi said. “You try to evaluate his stuff and how you feel about that. What we’ve seen this year is much more positive than what we’ve seen the last (few years), you know, in velocity, the discrepancy between that and the change up and slider, so now to me it’s just ironing out and being more consistent.”

It’s not particularly unusual for a pitcher to not want to face a division team in spring training, but by passing on a start against the Orioles, Sabathia was left open to obvious questions about a five-inning, four-run start against minor leaguers. He walked two and struck out seven.

“Today was a day when we were trying to work on the changeup,” Sabathia said. “I get runners on first and second or whatever it was (and threw) a couple of changeups. Me and (catcher Brian McCann) wanted to work on it so I threw it again. The guy hits a homer. I probably won’t throw it like that in a game.”

McCann noted that he’s seen Sabathia get stronger from start to start. He said he really sees that added strength late in games. McCann said Sabathia’s stuff was basically the same in today’s fifth inning as it was in the first inning.

“The ball was coming out great,” McCann said. “I thought he threw the ball great. Two-seamer was running really good. Ambushed a couple of hits, but all in all, I thought the ball was coming out fantastic. … When you go over there, you’re not pitching to scouting reports. You get guys set up, and then you think you can get something in there, and they hit it. But all in all, I thought changeup was really good, fastball to both sides of the plate, and the slider was great today.”

Sabathia has one more spring start before he pitches the third game of the regular season.

“I was able to go out there five times and pitch five innings and feel great,” he said. “Like I said, I haven’t had any problems. I’m just looking forward to getting into the season and trying to help this team.”

Alex Rodriguez• Alex Rodriguez raised his slash line to .306/.405/.583 and hit his team-leading third home run in a 10-2 loss to Baltimore. “Numbers mean nothing,” Rodriguez said. “But you definitely want to pass the eye test. That means moving around better, putting balls in play, and hitting balls in the mid-90s. Those are things I haven’t done in over a year and a half, so everything for me this year – this spring, at least – is a test.”

• While the numbers might not mean much in the grand scheme of things, they do seem to provide some hope that Rodriguez might have something left. It was one thing when he was drawing walks and getting into good counts early in spring training, but now he seems to be putting together good and productive at-bats even in the final week of exhibition games. “Overall, it’s just repetition,” Rodriguez said. “I’ve said it all along. Any time you can keep adding up at-bats, it’s a good thing.”

• While his first two spring home runs left plenty of doubt off the bat, today’s was clearly gone from the moment Rodriguez made contact. “That one felt good,” he said. “I was excited about that one.”

• Plan is still to have Rodriguez start at first base tomorrow.

• More good news on Jacoby Ellsbury, who came through today’s batting practice with no problems. He’s scheduled for more BP tomorrow and remains on track to play a minor league game on Tuesday.

• No real update on Jose Pirela. “I don’t know what he did today,” Giradi said. “He said he felt better. I didn’t ask him what he did today.”

• Sabathia is certainly not the only Yankees pitcher putting up numbers that aren’t exactly encouraging. Dellin Betances has now allowed a run in five straight outings. He had one walk, one strikeout and allowed a single today. “I’ve been leaving the ball up,” Betances said. “When I get ahead, I leave the ball up. Today, the contact wasn’t as hard. Obviously the first guy I fell behind 3-1 and he had a good swing, but after that, I felt like I threw some good pitches. I’ll be ready.”

Dellin Betances, Juan Lagares• Betances said he’s been working on his leg kick with Larry Rothschild. Concerning that, after being so good last year, he’s having some mechanical issues this spring? “It’s not like I’m missing as bad as I once was (in the minor leagues),” He said. “I’m around the zone. I felt way better even before I came in. I felt like my direction was better, something I’ll try to work on more. As that gets better, I think I’ll be able to throw more strikes and put guys away.”

• Giradri said he was encouraged because Betances had a better breaking ball today. “It’s not what you want,” Girardi said. “But one thing you always talk about a lot is don’t judge people on spring training, right? Sometimes a different beast comes out Opening Day. If this was happening the first month, you’d say, OK, what’s going on? But, I thought he was better today, and I think when the season starts, he’ll be right.”

• Speaking of bullpen guys, Andrew Bailey had another scoreless inning today. Chasen Shreve also pitched a scoreless inning. Those were the pitching bright spots for sure. Otherwise, it was kind of a mess today. Jacob Lindgren allowed his first earned run of the spring. Chris Martin struck out two but let two inherited runners score on a double. Justin Wilson got three strikeouts, but those were hit runners that scored on Martin’s watch.

• Worst pitching line of the day belonged to Scott Baker, who seemed to pitch himself into the roster conversation with a strong outing against the Mets last weekend. This time he had a clean first inning before allowing five runs on five hits including a homer in the second inning. “Physically, I felt great,” Baker said. “First inning, I made some good pitches. Then in the second inning, they found a couple holes and then they got the big hit. Maybe out of the stretch a little bit I was kind of feeling for it, but overall, I felt good. The results don’t necessarily show how I felt.”

• Over at the miner league complex, Bryan Mitchell was hit by a Gary Sanchez throw to second base. He finished the outing and is apparently fine.

• Despite the fact Esmil Rogers is making tomorrow’s road trip to pitch out of the bullpen, Girardi still wouldn’t name a fifth starter today. “Actually we’re going to sit down and talk today about what we’re going to do,” Girardi said.

• Here’s Sabathia talking about Masahiro Tanaka being chosen for Opening Day: “I’m excited for him. I think it’ll be a good deal. I know he’s excited to get a chance to do that. I’m excited to get a chance to be able to enjoy Opening Day. It should be fun.”

• Final word goes to McCann, who’s predictably staying optimistic about underperforming pitchers: “Spring training is not (the regular season),” McCann said. “Adrenaline plays a huge factor in results. You run out of the bullpen with 50,000 people in the stands, if you’re throwing 94 (in spring training), you’re going to throw 97, 98. Adrenaline plays a huge factor in both sides, hitting and pitching. When the lights turn on, it’s a whole other ball game.”

X-rays negative; Yankees optimistic Gregorius will play Wednesday

Didi Gregorius

X-rays came back negative, and now Didi Gregorius and the Yankees sound optimistic that they’ve dodged a bullet after today’s injury scare.

“I was worried,” Gregorius said. “Now that everything is fine, there’s nothing to worry about.”

Gregorius landed awkwardly on his glove hand while trying to make a diving play in the second inning. He initially stayed in the game, but that lasted only two more innings. A check swing in the third inning hurt a little bit, and the Yankees sent him for tests. He was diagnosed with a sprained left wrist, but tests showed no further damage.

“I was feeling fine (initially),” Gregorius said. “I could move my hand normally, but on the last swing, the check swing, that’s when it bothered me a little bit. … On the check swing, I couldn’t hold my bat. That’s when I felt like something was wrong. But the X-ray was fine, so I’ll just wait a couple days.”

Joe Girardi said he plans to give Gregorius the next three days off. After that, if the Yankees feel his wrist is fine, Girardi said he’ll probably let Gregorius play in a major league game. The Yankees could have Gregorius play in the minor leagues the rest of spring just to give themselves the option of back-dating a potential disabled list stint, but Girardi said he’s not sure that will be necessary.

“Hopefully he’s available,” Girardi said.

If Gregorius is out a few days, Girardi said he’d likely play Brendan Ryan at shortstop and keep Stephen Drew at second base. If it’s a more serious situation, the Yankees would have to pick a new infielder to carry on the roster, and at that point, Girardi said he’d have to leave any option on the table. Drew has not taken a single infield drill at shortstop this spring, but Girardi doesn’t sound hesitant to play him at the position if need be.

“It’s riding a bike,” Girardi said. “I don’t think it would be hard for him.”

ROSTER OPPORTUNITY: The Yankees clearly want to see Scott Baker. He was supposed to pitch yesterday, but when that game was rained out after five and a half innings, the Yankees decided to have Baker start today’s game instead. He’s getting the priority innings ahead of prospect Bryan Mitchell, which seems to be a strong indication that the Yankees are thinking of carrying Baker as a long man out of spring training.

UPDATE, 1:12 p.m.: Good, clean first inning for Baker.

UPDATE, 1:28 p.m.: Really looked like Didi Gregorius hurt himself diving for a single to left field. He landed awkwardly on his glove hand and seemed to hurt either his wrist or his thumb. Looked pretty bad at first, but after talking to the trainer, Gregorius played catch a little bit and stayed in the game. Would have been quite a blow.

UPDATE, 1:37 p.m.: Five-run second inning for the Orioles. Baker allowed four singles, and you could make the case that he wasn’t being hit hard until Alejandro De Aza just crushed a three-run homer to right.

UPDATE, 1:44 p.m.: Gregorius was on deck when the bottom of the second ended, and now he’s going back out to play shortstop in the top of the third. Looks like the Yankees dodged a bullet there.

UPDATE, 1:58 p.m.: One of the very few innings when Jacob Lindgren has really struggled this spring. He gave up two singles and a walk in the third, but he limited the damage to just a single sacrifice fly. It’s now 6-0 Orioles.

Pregame notes: “I just keep my head down, and I keep working”

David Carpenter, Austin Romine

Austin Romine’s never come to spring training as a favorite. He’s competed for a job many times, had a chance to open plenty of eyes, but there’s always been someone ahead of him on the projected depth chart whether it was Chris Stewart or Francisco Cervelli or — this year — John Ryan Murphy.

How do we know Murphy was ahead of Romine coming into this spring? Because the Yankees left no doubt last season. Romine got a long look in 2013, but it was Murphy who got the extended opportunity in 2014. Romine got a couple cups of coffee last year, that’s it. He didn’t even get a September call-up when the roster first expanded.

MurphyRomine“Last year was tough at the beginning,” Romine said. “It was tough to be, I don’t want to say forgotten. Not forgotten. Just, it’s a business. Stuff happens. Moves get made. You can’t blame people for that. It was tough in the beginning, but once I kind of settled in an figured out, I still have to play good baseball wherever I am. That’s basically what I told myself every day. It was rough for a little while, but I kind of got over it. I got my head down and I started working again.”

This spring, Romine came into camp recognizing it for what it is. It’s another opportunity, perhaps his last in this organization. Murphy might be the favorite, but Romine spent his winter at an intense training facility in California. He said he threw up after the first eight workouts. He ultimately lost 10 pounds, came to camp lean and strong.

He showed up to prove himself. He gets the start behind the plate today, which is another opportunity to do that.

“Everybody says they’re in the best shape ever when they come into spring training,” Romine said. “But I literally was. I wanted to be able to go into the office when they call me — if I’m going up or going down — and know that I gave it everything I had, because they deserve it. They’ve given me a lot, and I want to be the backup catcher to give back to them. They’ve put me in a position to be where I am in my life, so I feel like I owe it to them to give it everything I have.”

Neither Romine nor Murphy has had a particularly good spring at the plate. Murphy’s gotten going a little bit lately, but he still has just a .492 OPS. Romine has a .477. Romine is out of options. Murphy is not. Brian Cashman has said that’s a factor that could play into the decision of who wins the job. In a way, that gives Romine an advantage, if he can only show he’s worth another opportunity.

“I came in here with a plan,” Romine said. “And I’ve put myself in a good position to achieve that plan. I just keep my head down, and I keep working, and I get down what I need to get done. Hopefully I make this team. … I have no idea, no idea (what’s going to happen). Murph doesn’t either. No one does. We just keep playing. They’ll figure it out. That’s their job, so we just keep playing.”

CC Sabathia• A reminder that CC Sabathia is pitching in a minor league game today while Scott Baker starts the big league game against Baltimore. Bryan Mitchell, who was originally scheduled to start against the Orioles, said he’s also going to pitch at the minor league complex.

• Tomorrow’s travel squad includes Esmil Rogers, who’s clearly making the trip to pitch out of the bullpen. That seems to be yet another sign that Adam Warren has won the fifth-starter job.

• It will be interesting to see how the long relief role plays out. Obviously Rogers is stretched out and could be one long man, but given the rotation concerns, the Yankees surely want another guy who’s capable of multiple innings. Baker and Chase Whitley are — in my opinion — the top candidates for that job ahead of Mitchell, who makes more sense as Triple-A rotation depth. While Baker is getting a chance to start today, Whitley is on the travel squad for tomorrow, obviously scheduled to pitch an inning or two of relief.

• Ivan Nova has now thrown four bullpens that have included breaking balls. He said his arm still feels great. He’s happy and encouraged by the way his Tommy John rehab has gone. All positive so far.

• Masahiro Tanaka and Adam Warren each threw a side today.
