The Yankees are split up today. This game thread will be for the home game which can be seen on MLB Network outside of New York and on YES in New York. The home Yankees will be facing the Blue Jays with Nathan Eovaldi making his spring debut against Drew Hutchison. Aroldis Chapman will also be making his spring debut. Pitching coach Larry Rothschild told reporters that Chapman would pitch the fifth inning. Here’s the Yankees home lineup: Kozma 3B Beltran RF Rodriguez DH Teixeira 1B McCann C Denorfia LF Diaz 2B Wade SS Fowler CF Here’s the away team’s Continue reading Spring Training Game 9 (Home): Yankees vs. Blue Jays
Blah blah blah, taking over the city, blah blah blah. Ivan Nova makes the second start of Spring in Port St. Lucie against the Mets. Jacob deGrom is starting for the home team. Here’s your Yankees’ lineup: Didi Gregorius SS Aaron Hicks LF Chase Headley 3B Dustin Ackley 2B Gary Sanchez C Chris Parmelee DH Deibinson Romero 1B Cesar Puello RF Dustin Fowler CF The game can be seen on MLB Network nationally, I believe, and locally on SNY. You can also hear it on 710 WOR.
Aroldis Chapman told reporters that he will be making his Spring, and Yankees, debut in Thursday afternoon’s game at Steinbrenner Field. Thursday is a split squad day with some of the players facing the Blue Jays at home and the others heading to Sarasota to face the Orioles. Thursday’s game against the Blue Jays will be shown on YES so if you wanted to see Chapman’s debut, you would actually be able to watch it. Nathan Eovaldi will be starting for the Yankees.
Another spring debut, another game that isn’t televised. It’s a split squad day. Some guys are on the road in Jupiter while others have stayed behind in Tampa to have a regular workout day. But the big news is CC Sabathia making his first start of the spring. In case you missed it yesterday, The Player’s Tribune published an essay by Sabathia in which he opened up about his addiction to alcohol and his road to recovery. It’s eye opening. Here are the lineups for the game we can’t see: YANKEES Gregorius SS Hicks CF Headley 3B Ackley DH Romine Continue reading Spring Training Game 7: CC Sabathia’s debut
[I wrote this post for ESPN’s SweetSpot Blog and it was originally published on Friday, March 4] The New York Yankees’ starting rotation has more than a few question marks as we approach the start of the 2016 season. Among them: Will CC Sabathia pitch like he did down the stretch at the end of last season — he had a 2.17 ERA in his final five starts — or was it just an aberration? Will Masahiro Tanaka’s elbow survive another full season without falling apart? Will Luis Severino build on his strong showing as a rookie in 2015? Will Continue reading Michael Pineda: The man who throws too many strikes
So sorry this thread is late. I do not believe this game is being broadcast anywhere so you’ll have to keep track of it on MLB At Bat or on Gameday. And because I’m in a rush to get this up, I’m admitting to copying and pasting this from the Lohud Yankees Blog. So big thanks to Chad Jennings: YANKEES (2-3) Jacoby Ellsbury CF Carlos Beltran RF Ales Rodriguez DH Mark Teixeira 1B Brian McCann C Starlin Castro 2B Chris Denorfia LF Jorge Mateo SS Jonathan Diaz RHP Michael Pineda (12-10, 4.37 in 2015) ASTROS (4-1) Jake Marisnick CF Marwin Continue reading Spring Training Game 6: Big Mike’s spring debut!
Here’s today’s game thread. The game can be seen on TV (YES, NESN) and heard on the radio (WFAN, WEEI). Hooray!
And thanks, as always, to the Lohud Yankees Blog for the bench guys and bullpen:
