A GLIMPSE OF YANKEE SPRING TRAINING: PART 2
A lot of great shots from Spring Training today. As always we here at Bleeding Yankee Blue will chose about 5 of them each day... the best ones according to us and give you alittle commentary or news about them. Let's begin:
Brian McCann. Our unofficial Yankee captain in my opinion. I love this man's leadership and I am seriously waiting for him to explode! McCann hasn't been the hitter I was hoping for when he came over here. I believe this might be a big year for McCann. Let's hope!
CC Sabathia is smiling. Damn, that's a great smile! That's a healthy happy dude right there. CC will be competing for a starting role, and you know what? My guess is the man will get it. He's a gamer and a seasoned veteran. We are all hoping that knee holds up and there is no reason to believe it won't. Looking forward to a solid 2016 for CC.
Nice shot of Nathan Eovaldi throwing alittle bullpen today. Eovaldi feels great and has no issue after his elbow injury sidelined him last year. He said he feels terrific. Look for this guy to have yet another great season in pinstripes. Eovaldi was definitely an awesome pickup and a perfect edition to the pitching staff.
Gary Sanchez is projected to be the backup catcher this season, no problem. Sanchez has been in the Yankees minor league system for a few years now and he's young. Last year and in the Arizona League, maturity set in and he clicked. The Yankees and Yankee fans are excited to see this guy in the Bronx. We can't wait actually.
More tomorrow. If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check out A GLIMPSE OF YANKEE SPRING TRAINING: PART 1.
