Mid-Morning Notes: Mo is here, Romine talk, CC throws

By Andrew Marchand

* Mo Rivera is in camp. He looks like he is in good shape. Wally Matthews will have a news story up soon. Rivera said if it need be he will talk to Joba Chamberlain about his weight.

* While Chamberlain might talk with Rivera, I had a nice conversation with Austin Romine. Couple of interesting things. You could really see how much he emphasizes his defense. He was very proud that so many guys he caught were promoted. With the bat, he said having an aggressive approach -- not thinking too much -- has improved his hitting. He added that he and Jesus Montero are good buddies. They even roomed together in the minors.

* CC Sabathia threw. He said he felt good.
