Yankees Postgame Notes

The New York Yankees have made a decision on the 5th starter but Joe Girardi said they are not ready to announce it yet. They also aren't ready to announce the starter for Fridays game against the Phillies. Alfredo Aceves and Sergio Mitre are pitching tomorrow but he said that the teams decision will not change based on how they do. The Yankees made 5 more cuts today and they are: Jonathan Albaladejo, Greg Golson, Kevin Russo, Juan Miranda and Mark Melancon. It looks like the announcement will be tomorrow regarding the 5th starter. Girardi did not say exactly why those 5 guys were cut but Ramiro Pena is now offically the utility guy. Javier Vazquez was happy with all of his pitches except his changeup. He said he has to iron out a minor mechanical issue. "I drift a little bit and my arm stays back." He is scheduled to pitch that last game of the spring against the minor leaguers. Francisco Cervelli made a nice play at third and Girardi said that he wants him to continue taking grounders there because Pena is the only guy on the bench who can play on the left side of the infield. Cervelli said he has gotten used to his new helmet and his teammates have stopped giving him a hard time about it. It's just the fans Gazoo he said. Joe Girardi said he got close to coming in to play third once but never actually did. He said it was a good thing he didn't.
