The minor league season kicks off today, here’s how theÂ Yanks’ affiliates open up:
Triple-A Scranton vs. Norfolk Tides (
Nats O’s) at 7:00 pm. Clippard vs. ?
Double-A Trenton vs. Bowie Bay Sox (Orioles) at 7:05 pm. Pitchers TBA, but I’m guessing either Brett Smith or Alan Horne gets the ball.
High-A Tampa @ Lakeland Tigers (7:00 pm)Â to take on Cameron Maybin. Pitchers TBA, but the feeling here is Ian Kennedy will be pitching.
Low-A Charleston vs. Greenville AstrosÂ (7:05 pm). Pitchers TBA, but I’m all but certain Tim Norton will be starting.
Update: The AAA Norfolk team is the Orioles affiliate, not the Nationals. My mistake.
