ST Game 12 Recap: Late Inning Power leads Yankees (10-2) past Mets (5-8)

ST Game 12 Recap: Late Inning Power leads Yankees (10-2) past Mets (5-8)

The first of many "Subway Series" rivalry games this year was played yesterday by an interesting mix of veterans, prospects, and guys on the cusp of the roster for both teams. (Aren't Spring Training lineups always interesting at this time?) The game was played at First Data Field in Port St. Lucie, Florida, which serves as the home for the Grapefruit league Mets and both their Florida State League affiliate the St. Lucie Mets and their Gulf-Coast League affiliate the GCL Mets.

The game started around 1PM, and featured starting pitchers Domingo Germán (NYY) against Zack Wheeler (NYM). The game was televised on SNY, and video highlights for both teams can be found here.

Without further ado- with the help of the Yankees Twitter page- lets get on to the recap:

Along with this, they'll be playing one more game against the Red Sox, Blue Jays, Astros, Phillies, and Pirates. Here is the remainder of the Yankees Spring Training schedule.

Going Through the Position Battles 10 Games into Spring Training

Going Through the Position Battles 10 Games into Spring Training

Going into Spring Training 2017 and the Grapefruit League season, the Yankees had two starting positional battles: Right Field and the last Starting Pitcher role. Luckily, two players shone through and took the jobs, Aaron Judge and Jordan Montgomery respectively.

This year, the Yankees have a bunch more positions up for battle this year, most importantly second base, third base, and center field. Likewise, they have two back-up infield jobs (first and the infield) along with looking for an emergency starting pitcher and final relief arm.

As we are now 10 days into the Grapefruit league season, let’s quickly look at how each position is shaping out to be:
