• Infield prospect David Adams will be sidelined for "a couple of weeks" of big league camp while he rehabs a back injury, according to manager Joe Girardi. The 25-year-old Adams played last year at Double-A Trenton, batting .306 in 86 games.

In July 2010, Adams was nearly traded to the Mariners in a package for left-hander Cliff Lee, but Seattle called the deal off because Adams was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain. The injury was later revealed to have been an ankle fracture.
