We’re almost to the end of the penultimate week of the offseason. Spring training only just started, but next week will be the last full slate of exhibition games. The goal as always is just to get the team to Opening Day in one piece, and the Yankees did have some news on that front, with Joely Rodriguez getting diagnosed with a pinched nerve in his neck. Rodriguez shouldn’t miss much time, and hopefully, the Yankees can navigate the next chunk of games unscathed.
Another loaded day on the site, starting with Esteban’s breakdown of some new pitch characteristics featured by Yankees hurlers so far in spring training. Andrés will also preview Aroldis Chapman’s 2022 campaign, Josh analyzes the potential impact of MLB’s bigger bases, and Peter opines on why Kyle Farmer of the Reds would be a strong pickup to bolster New York’s bench.
