Reliever Dellin Betances won’t work out with the team until after his salary arbitration hearing this week. Steinbrenner called it a part of the process.
“It’s nothing personal,” Steinbrenner said. “We love Dellin. He came up through the organization.”
Girardi would like to see a system where the hearings are completed before reporting day.
“I know he’s doing work and I understand why he’s not here,” Girardi said. “It’s an excused absence, but you never want to see somebody not here, that’s the bottom line.”
