Canceled

That’s a term you rarely hear in baseball, but Thursday night’s exhibition game between the Braves and Yankees was rained out, and in spring training, that doesn’t result in the game being merely postponed. It’s canceled. A.J. Burnett threw three innings under simulated conditions to stay on schedule, working in his curve for the first time this spring. Jorge Posada caught him. Francisco Cervelli was outfitted with a new S100 batting helmet [2] which he’ll wear at the plate indefinitely to protect against another pitch-induced concussion (though he’ll switch to a less bulky [2] standard helmet when running the bases). Derek Jeter has the flu. More rain possible on Friday. And those are the issues of the day.
