Matt Blake's first year as pitching coach of the Yankees wasn't supposed to go this way. But, nevertheless, this is how things are with the league suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Blake's pitchers were starting to hit their stride, as they prepared for Opening Day that would've been this past Thursday. But now...well, Blake is working off an online spreadsheet to track their at-home workouts all over the country.
"There's no playbook here," Blake told MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "Nobody's ever gone through it, so there's no tried-and-true recipe to fall back on."
