Marlins-Yankees spring training finale rained out
NY YANKEES 0, MIAMI 0

Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Yankees captain Derek Jeter had his final
spring training game rained out.

New York's scheduled game Saturday against the Miami Marlins was
canceled just moments after Jeter was honored during a short
ceremony at Steinbrenner Field. Jeter announced last month that
he will retire after this season.

A video tribute was played on the scoreboard before Jeter was
introduced to a standing ovation.

"I got a key to the city. I live here, so I can do whatever I
want when I'm in Tampa," Jeter said with a smile. "I thought it
was very nice."

Jeter was limited to 17 games last season after breaking his
left ankle in the 2012 playoffs. Although he hit just .137 this
spring, his bat looked better during the final week.

"I feel good, and that's the most important thing," Jeter said.
"I feel I'm where I want to be right now."

TANAKA TIME

Masahiro Tanaka thinks not pitching in the Yankees'
season-opening three-game series that starts Tuesday in Houston
is probably a good thing.

The Japanese star, scheduled to make his major league debut
Friday in Toronto, signed a $155 million, seven-year contract in
January. He was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA last year while leading
Rakuten to its first Japan Series title.

"I feel that would be a plus for me," Tanaka said through a
translator. "The big thing is I'll be able to get the feel of
what the games are like here through the dugout."

In five exhibition games, Tanaka gave up five runs and struck
out 26 over 21 innings.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Marlins: Shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria (groin tightness) had his
scheduled return rained out. He is expected to be ready for
opening day.

"That's a pretty big piece for us, make sure he's healthy,"
manager Mike Redmond said.

Yankees: Infielder Brendan Ryan (back spasms) will start
swinging a bat underwater Monday.

NO NUNEZ

Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced that Yangervis Solarte
beat out Eduardo Nunez for a backup infield job. Nunez, who
played in 90 games for the Yankees last year, was optioned to
Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The Yankees also optioned left-hander Cesar Cabral and
right-hander Shane Greene to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Right-hander
Matt Daley, catcher Jose Gil, infielder Zelous Wheeler, and
outfielders Antoan Richardson and Adonis Garcia were sent to
minor league camp.

UP NEXT

Marlins: Jose Fernandez will pitch Monday night's season opener
against Colorado's Jorge De La Rosa.

"I'm excited," Redmond said. "I think we've had a great spring,
and I think we have more pieces. I think the atmosphere and the
energy has been great. Definitely going to be a battle out there
for us, but I love our pitching and I love the makeup of our
ballclub. I think we're going to be better offensively. So, in
saying all that, we've got to go out there and do it."

Yankees: CC Sabathia and Scott Feldman are Tuesday's scheduled
starters in Houston.

Girardi said Saturday's lineup - Jacoby Ellsbury, Derek Jeter,
Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, Mark Teixeira, Alfonso Soriano,
Brett Gardner, Brian Roberts and Kelly Johnson - will likely be
the one used Tuesday.
