Good morning, we’ve reached the penultimate day of spring training just like that. The Yankees camp hasn’t been without its share of bumps along the road, as key players like Luke Voit, Zack Britton, and Clarke Schmidt are all sidelined for the foreseeable future. Still, the overall feeling from the team as they prepare to break camp is that spring has been a success for them, and that they’re ready to hit the ground running. To do that, they’ve got to make it through two more days unharmed first.
Today features a daytime matchup with the Phillies, flanked by our usual lineup of articles. Dan starts the day off by going through the list of coaches on staff that the Yankees have announced for their minor league system this year, followed by Tom previewing Tyler Wade’s season. Erica looks into how Mike Tauchman’s showing some promising improvement off of his exit velocity, and Joe provides the weekly social media spotlight.
