TAMPA, Fla. -- The Yankees' bullpen is battling a round of Spring Training aches, as left-handers Pedro Feliciano and Boone Logan have been sidelined by minor ailments.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said on Friday that Feliciano is getting extra rest because of soreness near his left triceps. Feliciano has not pitched since March 9.
Logan had been sidelined due to a dead arm, but returned to throw a scoreless inning on Thursday against the Rays at George M. Steinbrenner Field. But Girardi said that Logan is now experiencing back spasms.

"As long as they're just back spasms, it's usually just four or five days," Girardi said. "They're no fun, I know that."
The Yankees have also been handling injury issues with hurlers Joba Chamberlain and Sergio Mitre, who were kept out of action this week by oblique issues.
Chamberlain is scheduled to throw a bullpen at the Yankees' complex on Saturday, as is Feliciano. Mitre is slated to pitch in Friday's exhibition against the Blue Jays.
