If you hadn't noticed, the starting rotation has been rolling right along in the early spring. Masahiro Tanaka has looked healthy and sharp in his 2 starts, Michael Pineda has looked very good, Luis Severino was great yesterday, and Nathan Eovaldi's stuff looked like it hadn't missed a beat when he finally made his first start. CC Sabathia looked pretty good in his first start, and he continues his comeback from the knee and alcohol problems that bothered him last season with his second ST appearance this afternoon against the Phillies. That should put him on tap for 3 innings and 40-ish pitches today and the Yankees are rolling with a regular-heavy starting lineup behind him:
I believe Pineda is also scheduled to pitch behind CC today, and Philly will send Adam Morgan to the hill to start. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 PM local time and the game is being broadcast on YES and WFAN. Here's your game thread. Let's go Yankees!
