Today was the day Yankees fans waited for with bated breath. Luis Severino threw 25 tosses at 60 feet and reported no issues. Severino did indicate he felt "a little off" but thought that was due to not throwing for two weeks.
"That's a good thing," Severino said. "I know I'm not going to be ready the first month of the season, but I feel happy that I'm going to go back [to] feeling 100 percent healthy and help my team."
There were no signs of pain or discomfort. Severino will throw 50 tosses tomorrow and then take Friday off.
Utility infielder/outfielder Tyler Wade was removed from the game with tightness in both hips. Wade told reporters he thought it could have been due to sleeping at an awkward angle on the bus ride from Tampa. Wade said he was not worried and anticipates playing in a few days.
Jacoby Ellsbury played catch today. Ellsbury reported to camp last Sunday and began baseball activities this week. He will likely stick around in extended camp into April. From there, assuming he has no injuries, he’ll likely do a full minor league rehab stint before being ready to return to the majors.
