Yankees try to keep rolling in St. Petersburg 



iFrame Removed

Good morning from a Delta flight somewhere high above the east coast.


I’m making my way down to Tampa for tonight’s series opener against the Rays, and it will be my first game in about a week. I was off over the weekend — basically spent three worthless days in bed trying to get over the flu — then I was supposed to cover Tuesday before the rain out. Yesterday was a pretty typical day off leading into a road trip. So I haven’t seen this team first-hand lately, but I managed to watch most of yesterday’s games. More of the same from Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda, who have been obvious bright spots through these first two-plus weeks of the season. More of the same, also, from the bullpen, which has held together despite the loss of its most reliable commodity heading into the season.


Today we’ll have Mark Teixeira playing in his first minor league rehab game while CC Sabathia tries to keep his fourth start from unraveling. He’ll be matched up against David Price, which probably means — regardless of Brian Roberts’ status — another start for Scott Sizemore, who had a couple of hits in yesterday’s nightcap.


Things get started at the Trop a little past 7 tonight. For now, here’s the latest addition to Monument Park. Very cool.

On February 14, in the year of our Lord 1929, four men dressed as police officers enter gangster Bugs Moran's headquarters on North Clark Street in Chicago, line seven of Moran's henchmen against a wall, and shoot them to death. The St. Valentine's Day Massacre, as it is now called, was the culmination of a gang war between arch rivals Al Capone and Bugs Moran.  I hope they weren’t expecting truffles.

Pregame notes: “They told me to be ready for anything”          



iFrame Removed

Scott Sizemore


Scott Sizemore has never played first base. Not once. Not in Detroit. Not in Oakland. Not in the minor leagues. Not in college. Not at Hickory High School in Virginia.


He’s playing first base tonight.


“I haven’t been over there enough to really get a feel for the position,” he said. “But I consider myself a pretty good athlete, a pretty good infielder, so I feel like the basics are there, it’s just a matter of knowing my responsibilities on bunt coverage, all that good stuff.”


Sizemore was going through first base drills in Scranton in preparation for this moment. He was going to play a Triple-A game at first, but that was one of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s many rain outs, and then Sizemore was needed in the big leagues, and so he came up fully aware that this was a possibility, but without actually getting a turn at the position.


Of course, after putting Francisco Cervelli and Carlos Beltran at first base already this year, Sizemore seems like a natural fit.


“We’re pretty confident that he can do it,” Joe Girardi said. “Obviously he has not been in a game and done it, but I’m pretty confident he can do it. … It’s not the most comfortable position to be in, but when you go through injuries sometimes you have to be a little bit creative. I didn’t really feel like putting Carlos back there, so I went with Sizemore.”


The Yankees face another lefty tomorrow, so there’s a good chance this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Sizemore at one position or another. What happens on Sunday is anyone’s guess, but for now he’s here to plug a hole, even if that means playing an unfamiliar position.


“They told me to be ready for anything,” Sizemore said. “And here I am.”



Mark Teixeira· Mark Teixeira should be back at first base in three days. Teixeira played three innings in an extended spring training game this afternoon. He’ll play five innings tomorrow and a few innings again on Saturday before being activated for Sunday’s series finale. Girardi said that Teixeira had a “really good day” today and he’s on track to come off the disabled list when eligible. “Everything is pointing to him playing for us,” Girardi said. “It’s something that we have to talk about, but everything points to him being here.”


· Similar situation for Dave Robertson who threw a 25-pitch bullpen this afternoon. He’s supposed to pitch in an extended spring training game on Saturday and should be activated on Tuesday. “I think it’s a distinct possibility,” Girardi said.


· The minor league complex is going to be the place to be on Saturday. Brendan Ryan is supposed to play that day as well. “He’s been swinging,” Girardi said. “I think he’s going to play maybe a little sim game on Friday and get some live ABs. He’s progressing OK. … He’s got to go through a normal spring training. It will obviously be sped up because we can get him more at-bats in certain situations, but we’d like to see him get 40, 50 at-bats.”


· Still no starter announced for Sunday’s game, but Girardi said it will be one of the current relievers. Sounds like David Phelps and Vidal Nuno are the best bets. Adam Warren has basically locked up a late-inning job. “If he starts pitching in the back end like he’s going to do, the plan wouldn’t be to stretch him out,” Girardi said.


· No big moment that landed Brian Roberts back in the lineup today. Girardi has him in there now, and if something happens where the lineup has to change, then it will. So far, though, all signs are that Roberts is ready to play again. Girardi said he’s going to keep an eye on Roberts throughout to make sure he’s moving OK. With Dean Anna and Kelly Johnson on the bench, the Yankees have two other options at second base just in case.


· Girardi said he’s not taking for granted that Derek Jeter’s leg issue is finished. “I’m going to pay attention to it,” Girardi said. “This is back-to-back days. I am going to play attention to it, but I felt good about how he came through yesterday. I thought he had to run pretty hard between first and second, and that was good. Obviously the weather’s a lot better here, but I will keep my eye on it.”
