"TAMPA, Fla. -- Left-handed relief pitcher Hideki Okajima has failed his physical and will not be at spring training with the New York Yankees.

The Yankees had signed the 36-year-old former Boston Red Sox reliever to a minor league contract in December and expected him to compete for a spot as a situational lefty out of the bullpen to complement Boone Logan, the only lefty reliever on last year's staff.

Minus Okajima, the Yankees now have only two left-handed relievers other than Logan in camp -- 23-year-old Cesar Cabral, acquired in the Rule 5 draft, and 31-year-old Mike O'Connor, who made nine appearance for the Mets last season before being designated for assignment."

I certainly am not too worried about this but it is a blow.
