Nuno has never played in the majors. He was 1-1 with a 1.54 in four starts at Triple-A this year.

At the Yankees‘ spring training complex in Tampa, Fla., Granderson took on-field batting practice for the second straight day. He also threw after fielding balls in the outfield and ran the bases.

The All-Star outfielder is recovering from a broken right forearm.

“Everything is continuing to move forward,” Granderson said. “Lots of good things. No issues swinging. No issues throwing. Just have to get stronger and repetitions on both, throwing and hitting. So, now it’s a mix of strength, timing and endurance for those activities.”

Also, right-hander Michael Pineda threw in his first extended spring training game against Pittsburgh minor leaguers. He faced four batters, walking two and allowing two soft singles.

Pineda missed all of 2012 with a shoulder injury and is expected to be out until at least June.
