Yankees' Tanaka, Sabathia getting closer to pitching in spring game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees starting pitchers Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia are progressing in their preparation for the start of the season, per MLB.com. 

Sabathia, who is coming off knee surgery, reported no issues after throwing 20 pitches in batting practice Thursday. Tanaka, who missed time in 2014 due to an elbow injury, will face hitters in a simulated game Friday.

Manager Joe Girardi said Sabathia will throw one more sim game before making his spring debut. Tanaka, however, will have to wait a little longer for his first spring action.

"Last year, we were trying to learn [about] him, and he was trying to learn us and learn the league," Girardi said of Tanaka. "I think this year, it's just important that we do what we feel is best for him.

"These guys are going to compete and understand the work they have to get in, whether it's a simulated game or a regular game. You can say all you want it's competition, but the competition you're going to face in April is different than the competition you're going to face now, because guys don't stay in the whole game and you don't get to go through all your pitches. There's a little bit more of an edge come April 1."

Yankees' Girardi getting closer to playing A-Rod in the field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Alex Rodriguez will make his second spring appearance at DH for the Yankees on Friday against the Pirates. While manager Joe Girardi feels Rodriguez is physically ready to play in the field, he is holding off a little longer before starting Rodriguez at third base.

"Right now, I think at-bats are the most important thing," Girardi said, per MLB.com. "And I think sometimes if you want to leave him in a little longer, it's easier to do it as a DH.

"I talked to him the other day, and he said he's ready to go at third. That's not an issue."

Yankees' Carlos Beltran hopes to be factor again in right field
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

After an injury-filled 2014 season, Carlos Beltran is looking to be back in right field for the Yankees

A right elbow injury forced Beltran to spend most of his games as a designated hitter. In September, he had surgery to remove a bone spur and three chips. Now that his elbow has healed, Beltran is ready to play both offense and defense in 2015. 

"I just want to be productive," Beltran said, per MLB.com. "When I play baseball, I just want to put myself in a position where I can impact the team in a positive way, defensively or offensively. I understand that as a hitter, I'm going to have my month where I'm hitting .230. That's not going to go away. It's always been like that."

In 2014, Beltran posted a .233 batting average with 15 home runs and 49 RBI, with the elbow injury playing a large reason why.

Yankees eye Esmil Rogers in role of long reliever/spot starter
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Thursday he would like Esmil Rogers to fill the role David Phelps had in 2014 as a long reliever and spot starter, per ESPN.

"We think he’s got good stuff," Girardi said. "It’s learning how to use it and become more consistent. He’s got velocity, he’s got a good breaking ball, he's got a changeup. He has the ability to pitch. We feel he can do a lot of different things. He gives us a lot of flexibility, which is good. We like having that on our pitching staff, because you never know when something’s going to pop up."

Yankees might not have room on roster for Pirela as bench option
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he is curious about keeping Jose Pirela on the roster as a bench player, according to The Journal News. However, there is no clear path right now for Pirela, and it might take an injury for him to get on the roster.

“We’re going to move him around because that flexibility is nice to have,” Girardi said. “In the limited time that he was up last year, he did a really good time for us. And you could put him in the outfield as well. I don’t know how much we’ll put him in the outfield in spring, but I’m comfortable putting him out there anywhere. You never know how things are going to shake out in camp.”
