Mark Teixeira is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Friday.
Teixeira is still experiencing soreness in the pinkie he had stitches put into the other day and is having trouble gripping the bat. He won't take part in batting practice to give it a proper rest and should be considered day-to-day. Chase Headley will continue to play first in his absence with Martin Prado playing third.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jordan Lennerton has been assigned to minor league camp.
Lennerton hit .270 this spring but didn't show much pop in his bat. He had only three extra-base hits in 37 at-bats, but he did manage to drive in eight runs. He hit 10 home runs in Triple-A last season, but a .249 average leaves much to be desired. Fantasy owners should stay away from Lennerton for the time being. Analysis: Colby Conway
Vance Worley will start the season in the bullpen.
The competition for the final spot in the rotation was between Worley and Jeff Locke. Worley's 5.29 spring ERA outperformed Locke's 9.00, but the team wants Worley to be a stable figure in their bullpen. Worley's fantasy value takes a hit as he won't be a starter for a sneaky good Pittsburgh ball club. Analysis: Colby Conway
Update: Blazers have made the Tim Frazier signing official.
The former Penn State player will remain under contract with Portland for the rest of the season. Frazier was selected as the NBA Development League Player of the Week after averaging 20 points, 7.7 assists and 7.7 rebounds per game. However, Frazier won't be worth adding in leagues unless an injury bug would hit Portland. Analysis: Colby Conway
