It’s been 73 days since Major League Baseball announced the suspension of spring training and the delaying of Opening Day. Although no official activities have occurred in quite some time, players throughout the league have continued to keep loose. Let’s check back in and see what some Yankees have been up to.

Gleyber Torres

It’s never a bad time to bust out the grill and throw on your chef’s hat. Gleyber Torres took advantage of the nice weather last weekend and grilled up some lobster tails and they look delicious. Anyone hungry?

Aaron Hicks

The center fielder had Tommy John surgery in October of last year, but it seems like he’s starting to work his way back to normal. Here’s a few videos of Hicks working out and taking a hack in the batting cage.

Luis Severino

Speaking of an injured player who is working their way back, Luis Severino was featured on the official Yankees’ Twitter page as he gave us an at-home workout tip. He was joined by Brett McCabe, the team’s strength and conditioning coach.

Luke Voit

Voit may be a good baseball player on the field, but he’s also a good person when he’s off the field. He surprised frontline workers who are helping fight the coronavirus by calling them over the phone. They talked about what he’s doing at home, which teammate he misses the most, and the call even ended with a “let’s go Yankees” chant.

Mariano Rivera

The cutter. The pitch that Mariano Rivera says “made” his whole career. The greatest closer in MLB history sat down to show the world how he throws his famous cutter in under three minutes. The entire video is really cool, but we need to acknowledge the room he’s in. Mo has his jersey right behind him, as well as some of his teammates’ jerseys.
