Hiroki Kuroda threw four scoreless innings against St. Louis, while scattering three hits and striking out six. I was skeptical last offseason when we signed Kuroda, but he has been more consistent and effective than I could have hoped.
Brett Gardner continued his torrid spring with one hit in three at-bats and a run scored. Even Kevin Youkilis showed some life, going 1-2 with a solo homerun and a sac fly, good for two steaks. Jeter went 0-2, which is not a big deal, I am simply giving an update.
It’s only spring, but the Yankees are looking less fragile (so far).
