Yankees prospect Spencer Jones continues to impress

Here are some nuggets from the Yankees’ spring training on Friday:

Spencer Gifts

Spencer Jones, the 6-foot-7 outfielder the Yankees drafted in the first round of the 2022 draft, lined up singles to right field and center field in his two at-bats in an 8-7 loss to the Tigers.

Jones is 4 for 12 in the Grapefruit league.

Domingo German allowed seven runs on nine hits – including four home runs – in 2 ²/₃ innings. The German was not concerned.

He said he was trying to work on his fastball and missed his spot several times.

Caught my attention

Aaron Hicks got rid of a foul ball that hit his foot, picked center and then stole his first spring training base.

Hicks, who had 10 interceptions last season, could look to run more with the new rules of the game.

Saturday schedule

Nestor Cortes will make his Grapefruit League debut in Dunedin, Fla. against the Blue Jays at 1:07 p.m.
