New York Yankees' World Series share reduced

NEW YORK — Turns out the Yankees' World Series shares didn't set a record.

A full share for the World Series champions was revised to $350,030 by the commissioner's office after an accounting error was discovered that caused three people to be left off the original distribution list.

In November, Major League Baseball said a full share was worth $365,053, topping the $362,173 a full share was worth on the 2006 Cardinals.

Baseball will collect $15,023 from each individual who received a full share from the original distribution.

JOBA ILL: RHP Joba Chamberlain had his bullpen session pushed back by at least one day because of flulike symptoms. If he can't take the mound today, he likely will have his first spring appearance delayed.

PLAYTIME: The Yankees went through a short workout before departing for manager Joe Girardi's second annual team bonding trip. The players and coaches took part in a competition of Indy Racing and arcade games at a local play center.

Jays: Romero taking nothing for granted

DUNEDIN — LHP Ricky Romero will start the Blue Jays' spring training opener today against the Tigers.

Starting the regular-season opener, he says, is the farthest thing from his mind.

"You've still got to go out there and prove yourself and continue to so good," he said. "As long as I'm part of the rotation and I'm part of the 25 guys going out there and competing, I'm fine with that.

"It's going to finally be good to go out there and face a different team, see where you're at when they're swinging at you."

Phils: Polanco excited about reunion

CLEARWATER — If Placido Polanco had a no-trade clause five years ago, he may have used it to veto the deal that sent him from the Phillies to the Tigers.

It's not that Polanco wasn't a fan of the Tigers. But the veteran infielder liked what he saw in the young, promising nucleus of players beginning to develop with the Phillies.

So when the Phillies came calling this offseason, it didn't take a lot of convincing on the team's part to finalize a reunion with Polanco, 34.

"I knew there was something special with this team, there was a lot of talent, it was just a matter of time before they put everything together … and they didn't let me down," he said.

"It's a very special group, a very special group. You see everyone showing up early and working hard. They're never satisfied."

    ST. PETERSBURG — It didn't take CF Kevin Kiermaier long to make his presence felt during his return Friday to the Rays lineup. Kiermaier pretended to have Mariners DH Nelson Cruz's first-inning line drive lined up even as the ball went past him to his right and to the wall.
