MLB: New York Yankees-Workouts Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

MLB.com | Bryan Hoch Yankees: outfielder Aaron Judge underwent a CT scan on Friday, which showed “slight improvement” in the stress fracture of his first right rib. The team said he would be re-evaluated in another two weeks. The player himself revealed that a previously unreported pneumothorax problem has been resolved. It is a lung issue that can happen “as a result of a blunt or penetrating chest injury,” such as a diving catch in the outfield.

New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: After having two public cases of coronavirus among minor league players, the Yankees believe they may have stopped the spread of COVID-19 through their spring training camp. The two ballplayers who tested positive for the disease were immediately quarantined, as were other players and staffers, and the quick actions taken could have been enough to stop the situation and prevent it from getting worse. As of Thursday night, according to Ackert, the team had no more outstanding tests.

MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: Tyler Wade is surely enjoying his time at the George M. Steinbrenner Field, where he and a handful of other Yankees are getting ready for whenever the season starts. Aaron Judge, Mike Ford, Clint Frazier and Luis Severino are among the group of ballplayers that chose to stay. “We kind of just treat it like our offseason a little bit,” Wade said to MLB.com. “It’s not really making our workouts longer or shorter or anything. It’s just whatever you feel is necessary to get in. We’re on our own program right now.”
