Tension at Yankees camp? Ivan Nova appears to be upset at Yankees camp.
It’s been 159 days since the Yankees last played, but hey, who’s counting? Now there’s only one day until Opening Day. Baseball is back! The last thing to do before the season starts is to talk to Sweeny Murti.
Score a -2 for the Yankees’ youth movement. Prospects Jesus Montero and Austin Romine lost out in their attempts to serve as backup to catcher Russell Martin on Monday.
We knew several days ago that Gustavo Molina had jumped to the front of the line to back up Russell Martin in the Yankees’ catching corps. That became pretty much official Monday when Jesus Montero and Austin Romine were sent back to the minors.
Who is Gustavo Molina and why is he about to be a Yankee? As Inigo Montoya said in The Princess Bride, “Let me explain. No there is too much. Let me sum up.”
Despite being the odds-on favorite to travel north after Francisco Cervelli’s foot injury, Jesus Montero is still battling for the Yankees’ backup catcher job.
The Yankees have finalized their minor league contract with right-hander Mark Prior, who is trying to make it back to the major leagues for the first time since 2006.
