The Yankees are on the road this afternoon against the Twins, and that means most of the regulars will get the privilege of avoiding the trip and having the day off. That's not the case for Ivan Nova, who will make his next start in the (supposed) battle for the final rotation spot. Here's the starting lineup that will take the field with him: 1) Brett Gardner- LF 2) Aaron Hicks- CF 3) Brian McCann- C 4) Chase Headley- 3B 5) Dustin Ackley- 1B 6) Chris Denorfia- DH 7) Pete Kozma- SS 8) Ronald Torreyes- 2B 9) Ben Gamel- RF
As was the case last time, Bryan Mitchell will follow Nova and if both pitch well enough they could be the only Yankee pitchers we see today. First pitch is coming up at 1:05 local time and I don't believe YES or MLBN is broadcasting the game, so this will be another MLB.tv-only game if you've got that. Here's your game thread. Go Yankees!
