Here's Aaron Judge bashing some baseballs on Field 2 in Tampa Sunday morning. The third one is still going. Yes, that's Willie Randolph too.

Although Red Sox manager Alex Cora declined Saturday to name an Opening Day starter, there's no suspense over the status of Eduardo Rodriguez and Steven Wright. Both pitchers will almost certainly begin the season on the disabled list as they recover from knee surgery, Cora told reporters today. Hector Velazquez, Roenis Elias and Brian Johnson are candidates for the fifth-starter spot, which will come up April 2 at the Marlins.

When the Yankees head to nearby Clearwater to face the Phillies today, Gleyber Torres will hit second and play SS. Billy McKinney, yesterday's hero in the win at the Pirates, will get the start in RF.

As another day passes without J.D. Martinez's contract being finalized, it isn't unusual for free-agent deals to be held up for days or even weeks by lengthy medical reviews and/or changes in contract language based on concerns over a potential future injury. The Red Sox went through such situations with J.D. Drew (also a Scott Boras client) and John Lackey. In 2013, the Sox completely re-worked a deal with Mike Napoli after the physical revealed a hip condition.

Clint Frazier firmly told reporters his "eyes are set on opening day. I'm here to want a spot ... in my mind, I'm breaking (spring) with the team. That's my goal, and that's the vision I have for myself." He isn't worried how the stacked OF competition will shake out. "I've been up (on MLB club) before, and I know people know I can play up there."

Following the Yankees' 4-1 win over the Pirates, Clint Frazier and Aaron Boone spoke about the 2nd-inning fly ball Frazier drifted on, then leapt for and caught on the warning track. Boone, smirking: "I was thinking, ‘Get back there, man. Get behind that thing a little bit.'" Frazier said the wind carried the ball today. "I've just got to make it look a little easier from here on out. That way I can have some people trust in me when the ball's hit to me."

Jackie Bradley Jr.'s OPS by month last season: .596, .808, 1.009, .596, .770, .517. On his reputation as a "streaky" hitter: "I feel like I haven't played my best baseball yet. I don't like to feed into that so-called streaky thing. I know what I'm capable of doing and it's just getting back to doing that on a consistent basis."
