Yankees' Cashman: Stephen Drew the 'smart play' at second
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/29/15) Stephen Drew has been outhit by two Yankees prospects this spring, but GM Brian Cashman said the veteran was still the "smart play" at second base.
Rob Refsnyder is hitting .343 with five doubles. Jose Pirela is hitting .370.
Meanwhile, a hot stretch over the weekend brought Drew to .243.
"I know there’s a lot of dialogue wrapped around Refsnyder and Pirela," Cashman said, per the Journal News. "But I think also that those guys have shown they still have work to do on the defensive side still. ... The bats are impressive, but you’ve seen the defensive stuff they’ve shown us in short sample sizes as well. ... So right now I’m pretty comfortable that Drew signing was the smart play for us on the front end."
Refsnyder has made five errors and Pirela two.
Drew had a three hit game on Friday, homered on Saturday and doubled on Sunday.
"He’s looked really good at the plate," Cashman said. "He’s looked so much better than last year the last week to 10 days. That’s encouraging. I know it’s got to be building his confidence and having memories of what he was prior to last year, because that’s certainly what’s playing around in my head. I feel much better about the situation right now."
Cashman: Jose Pirela won't be on Yankees' Opening Day roster

|(3/25/15) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday infielder Jose Pirela wasn't going to make the Opening Day roster, despite a productive spring, per NJ.com. Pirela is sidelined after colliding with the outfield wall Sunday, but even if he was healthy, Cashman said it wouldn't have mattered.
Pirela is batting .370 (10 for 27) with two triples, three doubles, five RBI, three walks, four runs and six strikeouts in 15 spring games.
Yankees' Pirela on outfield collision: Nobody wants to go through that
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Yankees utility man Jose Pirela revealed he was scared when he hit the warning track floor following his outfield-wall collision on Sunday, according to NJ.com.
"Yes, a little," he said. "I tried to relax and stay positive that everything was going to be alright."
Pirela was stretchered off the field with a concussion, and was discharged from the hospital Sunday night after an MRI and a CT scan camp back normal. He said he no longer feels any dizziness on Tuesday, but is still experiencing soreness in his neck and in his back from Sunday's collision. Manager Joe Girardi told the paper he still has some hurdles to pass before he is cleared for game action.
"Nobody wants to go through something like this," Pirela said. "I'm going to keep working and hopefully everything comes out alright."
Girardi: Pirela feeling better Monday, going through battery of tests
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said rookie Jose Pirela was feeling better Monday after suffering a concussion Sunday when he crashed into an outfield wall during a game against the Mets.
"He's pretty good today," Girardi told reporters, per ESPN. "He's sore. His neck is sore, too, [but] he feels and looks better than what I expected.
"He has to go through a battery of tests. We're very careful with it. The bottom line is you can say he's going on the seven-day DL during the season, but it could take longer, or he might be ready in five days. You just don't know with a concussion. For each person it's different. We've seen concussion symptoms last for months. We'll go through all the tests to make sure he's OK before we run him back out there."
Pirela is competing for a spot on the Yankees' bench.
