Here are some nuggets from the Yankees’ spring training on Saturday:
Gleyber Torres wasted no time getting on the board, hitting a double to left field in his first at-bat and then homering in the second. Torres will play about four more Grapefruit League games before leaving next weekend to play for Venezuela in the WBC.
Randy Vasquez, one of the Yankees’ top prospects who spent last year at Double-A Somerset, gave up a two-run home run to Weston Wilson in the second inning, one of five hits he allowed before being pulled after a third. of an organization. Vasquez then returned for the third inning and gave up two more hits while recording two outs before being pulled again.
It caught my attention
Oswaldo Cabrera laced a ball off the bounce to left field in the fifth inning, allowing the single to become a double. Cabrera handled himself well in the outfield corners last year, but it’s easy to forget that he barely played there before making it to the big leagues late last season.
The Yankees will have a pair of games with split teams. Aaron Judge leads the lineup by staying in Tampa for the home opener against the Braves, while Josh Donaldson and Anthony Volpe are on the traveling roster for a road game against the Blue Jays.
