Clint Frazier firmly told reporters his "eyes are set on opening day. I'm here to want a spot ... in my mind, I'm breaking (spring) with the team. That's my goal, and that's the vision I have for myself." He isn't worried how the stacked OF competition will shake out. "I've been up (on MLB club) before, and I know people know I can play up there."

Following the Yankees' 4-1 win over the Pirates, Clint Frazier and Aaron Boone spoke about the 2nd-inning fly ball Frazier drifted on, then leapt for and caught on the warning track. Boone, smirking: "I was thinking, ‘Get back there, man. Get behind that thing a little bit.'" Frazier said the wind carried the ball today. "I've just got to make it look a little easier from here on out. That way I can have some people trust in me when the ball's hit to me."

Brandon Drury says the 93 mph fastball that hit him caught him on the top of his left hand. He iced it when he came out the next inning. It feels fine now and doesn't require X-rays.

Miguel Andujar was hitting some bombs in BP. A lot of power potential in that swing if everything comes together.

An hour south of Tampa, the Yankees are taking batting practice ahead of their game in Bradenton against the Pirates.

Aaron Boone said today it may be optimistic to expect Thairo Estrada ready for the start of the minor league season. The Yankees infield prospect who's recovering from a gunshot wound to the hip after a robbery attempt in Valenzuela last month, is showing signs of progress, though. He's "graduated to the elliptical" after spending the start of spring training riding exercise bikes, Boone said. "There's no chance we're going to push it too much with him. But I'm still hopeful that this isn't something that is going to cost him the bulk of the season by any means," Boone added.

Outside Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, something I've never noticed before: A memorial to the Twin Towers alongside a small piece of structural steel. Quite literally reflective in the way the Towers were.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone was asked what it meant to wear the Stoneman Douglas High School hat today: "It's huge. Anytime people are hurting, and we know the community is hurting right now, baseball can sometimes play a part with the healing process. And so to honor them and try and have a little bit of thoughts and prayers and our thoughts are with people who are hurting, it's something small that it was cool to be a part of."

Aaron Boone on getting his first win as a manager: "It's always good to shake hands (after a game)." He said he was pleased with how Yankees controlled the strike zone with patient at bats offensively in the 3-1 win over Detroit.

Stanton feels energy from Yankees fans (0:32)

Giancarlo Stanton spoke in the Yankees' clubhouse after he was replaced in the game. Asked how this spring training opener compared to ones he had with the Marlins, he said: "Uh ... this is better?" He continued by saying it's more about the anticipation for what the Yankees can do due to the buzz around this camp.

And on the first day of the expanded netting being used at a Home Yankees spring training game, Estevan Florial's bat just slipped out his grasp and sailed OVER the netting. Thankfully, the aware fan had good hands and caught it.

Giancarlo Stanton's day is done in the top of the fifth. The new Yankee went 0-for-1 with a walk in two plate appearances. He saw 10 pitches, and had no action in the field.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees' bullpen depth beyond the obvious core group is sick. Ben Heller is in now, a guy who basically has no shot at making the team, and he throws 95 and struck out 82 batters in 56 innings at Triple-A last year.
