New York Yankees News & Notes: Musty, Recap and Double Lineups

Happy Saturday everyone. Let’s take a look at some news and notes on Brennan Boesch‘s first day as a Yankee.

Welcome Back: The Yankees got their ace CC Sabathia back on the mound as the Yankees beat the Miami Marlins 7-3. Sabathia went five, giving up two runs on eight hits. Sabathia primarily worked out of the stretch. Francisco Cervelli hit his first homer of the spring and Jose Pirela had two triples.

Musty Outlook: One of the reasons Boesch is brought in is the injury to Ronnier Mustelier. He crashed into the camera well trying catch a foul ball. He had bruises on both legs and is going to be re-evaluated today. Mustelier will probably be out until early next week and unfortunately, his chances of making the team are dwindling.

Let’s Play two: The Yankees have a split squad today. They are home for the Philadelphia Phillies at 12:05 and visit the Atlanta Braves at 5:05. Only the 12:05 game is on tv on YES.
