Player weights a big topic at Yankees’ camp
Colon, on the other hand, was very open, saying he weighed in at 267 pounds.
“I have a goal, but I won’t be able to do it at spring training,” he said through a translator. “I feel really good right now the way I am, but I feel like I need to go down in my weight.”
The 37-year old Colon topped out at 278 points while pitching with Cleveland.
“We’ll help him get it off the best we can, safely,” Cashman said.
Also, first baseman Mark Teixeira, coming off a season in which he had a broken toe, sore thumb and strained his right hamstring in the fourth game of the ALCS, said there are no lingering issues.
“It’s over,” Teixeira said. “I play hard. I’m going to get hit with pitches. I’m going to dive and jam stuff. You’ve just got to play through it and hope for best.”
“I love it,” Teixeira said. “No one is picking us right now, and everybody in here should be looking forward to winning a championship. We played terrible in the playoffs. We didn’t win the division. We’ve got to re prove ourselves this year, which is going to be fun for all of us.”
Notes: Fans have been speculating about the potential of trading Teixeira to St. Louis for slugger Albert Pujols, who could become a free agent after the season. Even if the teams decided to explore it and came to a deal, Teixeira has a no-trade clause and would use it. “I’m not going anywhere,” Teixeira said. “I got that no trade for a reason. I’m going to be buried in these pinstripes.” … 2B Robinson Cano got the days mixed up and missed Saturday’s physicals. He is expected to arrive Sunday for the first full squad workout. “It’s no biggie,” Cashman said. “He’s not going to miss anything.”
