New York Yankees Notes

Here are some notes courtesy of Chad Jennings of the Journal News. He also has the Lohud Yankees Blog. Here is Phil Hughes speaking about his changeup. "I threw some in counts where normally never, ever would do it. I got good results with it."

  • Mariano Rivera had the bases loaded in his one inning of work. Here is what he had to say "It's good because you're out there throwing your pitches,working. It isn't 6,7,8 pitches, you need to throw to build you." He also added that it is like night and day how he feels now to how he felt last year at this time. He was coming off of surgery last season. He is scheduled to pitch on Friday which is a split squad and there was joking from the media on him going on the road. He of course never goes on the road in spring training.

  • Burnett wasn't very happy with his outing. Jorge Posada was telling him that he was throwing his best changeup yet but Burnett was more focused on his fastball. He said he has to have command of that because it is his bread and butter. He said he knows he has a good hook but he needs his fastball to be successful. He said in his pen he is going to throw about 30 4 seamers down and away, he said he has to get back to that.
