Today on Pinstripe Alley - 3/7/23

Take on a baseball-free Tuesday starting with this rundown.

MLB: Spring Training-Pittsburgh Pirates at New York Yankees Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve got a day to wind down after the first leg of spring training games. There have been a couple cuts made already, mostly with players that we already knew didn’t have much of a shot, but also some players whose chance got ended early due to injury. Either way, the group will slowly whittle down over the course of the month, but for now the team is making their initial reactions and gearing up for the next week of exhibitions.

We’ve got our own thoughts on the first round of impressions, graciously provided by John at the end of our lineup today. Preceding him is a preview of the remaining two WBC pools by Matt and Esteban, covering Pools C and D respectively, a look at the Pittsburgh Pirates from Estevão, and a check-in on Aaron Hicks from Sam.
