Miguel Andujar has a muscle strain in his right hand and “a little bit of nerve issue” according to manager Aaron Boone, and treatment for that continues to be rest and just monitoring the nerve issue as physicians try to get to the bottom of it.

The Yankees added to their catching depth late Monday night, adding Robinson Chirinos on a minor league deal with pitchers and catchers reporting to camp in just one day.
