The Grapefruit League season continues this afternoon with a home game against the Tigers. The Yankees have lost four of their last five games, you know. That would be more annoying if it weren’t Spring Training. Still, winning is better than losing, a win would be cool this afternoon.
Anyway, CC Sabathia is on the mound today making his second straight of the spring. He did throw a simulated game last week, so it’s really his third outing. For whatever reason, Sabathia is the pitcher I least worry about in the spring, even with the knee and his age. I dunno. I’m running out of things to say for these game threads. Here is the Tigers’ lineup and here is the Yankees’ lineup:
- LF Brett Gardner
- RF Aaron Judge
- DH Giancarlo Stanton
- C Gary Sanchez
- SS Didi Gregorius
- CF Aaron Hicks
- 3B Miguel Andujar
- 1B Adam Lind
- 2B Gleyber Torres
LHP CC Sabathia
Available Pitchers: RHP Cody Carroll, LHP Aroldis Chapman, RHP Gio Gallegos, RHP Chad Green, RHP David Hale, RHP Brady Lail, RHP David Robertson, and RHP Adam Warren.
Available Position Players: C Francisco Diaz, C Kyle Higashioka, C Jorge Saez, 1B Tyler Austin, IF Abi Avelino, IF Diego Castillo, IF Tyler Wade, OF Estevan Florial, OF Jeff Hendrix, OF Billy McKinney, OF Shane Robinson, and UTIL Jace Peterson.
Nice and sunny in Tampa this afternoon. Great day for a ballgame. This afternoon’s game will begin a little after 1pm ET, and you can watch live on YES and MLB Network. Enjoy the game.
