Back in action
The Yankees were dark on Monday, as Joe Girardi wanted everyone in camp to have a complete day-off – and some of the regulars (like Alex Rodriguez, Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera) got Sunday as well, making this a nice 2 1/2 day respite for them.
That all ends tonight under the lights at George M. Steinbrenner Field, as the Yankees host the Astros tonight at 7:05 p.m. ET. We’ll get more looks at both A.J. Burnett and Phil Hughes in this one, as well as what could more closely resemble the Yankees’ Opening Day lineup – Nick Johnson hitting second, Robinson Cano batting fifth and Curtis Granderson seventh, perhaps?
Catch you later with some updates from the ballpark.
