- Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte tossed the first bullpen session of the day. Once again, there was no sign of discomfort with Rivera as he hit 30 pitches this morning. A little further ahead in his training, David Phelps faced live batting practice.
- CC Sabathia also threw around 30 pitches off a mound and felt completely fine. He does not believe that there were any strikes thrown, but it is a step forward after elbow surgery this off-season. He could toss again on Tuesday, but is not expected to pitch in a game until March.
Manager Joe Girardi says don't expect the Yankees to try out Travis Hafner defensively. He will strictly be a designated hitter for the team. Derek Jeter will also be used as a designated hitter against lefties occasionally as Girardi told USA Today's Bob Nightengale.
