I know it’s still only Spring Training but I figured since the game is a night game, we’d do a game thread. The game is on YES for the tri-staters and it’s on MLB Network for people in Houston.
Here’s the Yankees lineup:
LHP CC Sabathia
This lineup is so strange, isn’t it?
Notes from the Lohud Yankees blog:
- The back ups are C Bobby Wilson, 1B Luke Murton, 2B Gil Velazquez, SS Jayson Nix, 3B Ronnier Mustelier, LF Ben Francisco, CF Melky Mesa, RF Thomas Neal
- And the relievers are Mariano Rivera, Dave Robertson, Joba Chamberlain, Jim Miller, Vidal Nuno
- Wells will be wearing #56 tonight and for the rest of Spring Training but will be assigned a lower number at the start of the season. Tony Pena currently wears the number.
- According to Sweeny Murti, the Yanks released David Adams to make room for Wells on the 40-man roster.
