Observations from the Yankees’ spring training game on Wednesday.

Prospect watch

Yoendrys Gomez came on to pitch the last inning of the Yankees’ 15-0 eight-inning loss to the Phillies in Clearwater, Fla., and in his scoreless outing showed why he is considered by Baseball America as the organization’s eighth-overall prospect. The 21-year-old right-hander spent 2019 at Single-A Charleston and was put on the 40-man roster this offseason. He hit 97 mph on the gun Thursday.

More prospect watch

Albert Abreu allowed four runs in just two-thirds of an inning in the Phillies’ nine-run fourth. The 25-year-old still has a minor league option remaining.
