Bartolo Colon was actually... great. He used a two-seamer to great effect in three innings of work. It was only Boston's B-lineup, but still, he didn't walk a batter and K'ed five in three shut-out innings. Yankee starters have conceded one run in 15 innings.
After him was Manny Banuelos, who looked awesome. It's too bad he doesn't have a shot to make the rotation. His fastball ranged from 92-96 MPH, and he mixed in a good changeup and curveball. His last AB was particularly telling: he started Darnell McDonald with a changeup for a called strike one, followed with a curveball that was fouled off, then blew McDonald away with a 96-MPH heater on the inside corner. And he makes it look so smooth and effortless. A thing of beauty.
Alex Rodriguez had two hits and Robinson Cano had his first hit of the spring, a double.
Boone Logan couldn't get out of the seventh, in which he allowed three runs. Most believe Logan is a lock to make the 25-man roster, but he might be taking himself out of the equation with a 13.50 ERA. Could Mark Prior sneak onto the roster? What about David Phelps or Hector Noesi?
