Bobby Murcer was scheduled to work spring training games for YES March 5, 7 and 8, but that schedule is on hold as Murcer prepares for a brain biopsy Monday.

Doctors grew concerned about a potential new tumor after a recent MRI, the Daily News first reported Thursday, and Murcer's wife, Kay, alerted family and friends in an e-mail.

YES executives have said throughout the offseason they will remain flexible regarding Murcer's work schedule as he continues treatment for the brain cancer that was diagnosed late in 2006.

If Monday's test comes up negative, Murcer could report to Tampa by the end of next week.
