Kelly Johnson has been up for any challenges the Yankees toss his way this spring, including strapping on the glove at first base, but Johnson would prefer if Mark Teixeira still is able to handle the position as much as possible.
Dellin Betances wanted to throw his fastball. He'd just snapped off five straight breaking balls, a fairly unusual occurrence, and he wasn't particularly keen on gambling for a sixth as he looked in for the catcher's sign. Another breaking ball, John Ryan Murphy's fingers suggested. Instead of shaking his head, Betances rolled with it, unloading a nasty pitch that the Rays' Matt Joyce waved at for strike three. That sequence wrapped up another strong inning in a spring that has had the Yankees talking.

There is a balance to be found, but as Teixeira prepares to take the field for his first game of the spring, the Yankees first baseman is eager to chalk up swings in game action.
