A-Rod will make his spring debut on Wednesday; Luis Torrens may miss an extended period of time; A Yankee fan takes on an ambitious trek for charity, and more

LoHud Yankees Blog | Chad Jennings: The Yanks held an intrasquad "game" on Monday. I put the word game in quotes because hitters faced a pitching machine and most of the rules were foregone in favor of working on situational hitting and defense. Jennings has some video and a scrapped-together box score.

ESPN NY | Wallace Matthews: A-Rod won't be playing in tomorrow's spring opener against Philadelphia. We'll have to wait until Wednesday for our first look at Rodriguez actually playing baseball in 2015.

NY Post | George A. King III: King has some news and notes from camp, including word that catching prospect Luis Torrens is having his injured throwing shoulder evaluated and he may miss the entire season. As Jason Cohen pointed out, while this would be a pretty rough blow to his development, Torrens is only a couple of months from his 19th birthday and this would certainly not be the nail in the coffin for his career.

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: It was about a week ago when Ichiro Suzuki expressed his pleasure to be away from the Yankees. Yesterday we learned that David Robertson is feeling just fine calling someplace other than Yankee Stadium home, even if he doesn't sound nearly as salty towards his former team as Ichiro.

Yahoo! Sports | Mark Townsend: 65-year-old Richard J. Albero, a retired naval officer and teacher, is beginning a 20-mile-a-day walk from George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project in honor of his nephew who passed in the attacks on 9/11. Alberto is accepting donations through his website.
