3/22 – Yankees at Phillies

We’re here bright and early at George M. Steinbrenner Field for 10 a.m. baseball, as a patchwork Yankees team is getting ready to take the field and help the pitchers get their work in.

The pitching has slightly been altered from yesterday. Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, Damaso Marte and Dave Robertson comprise one “team,” and Joba Chamberlain will pitch with Chan Ho Park.

Following the intrasquad game here at George M. Steinbrenner Field (which, regarding numerous inquiries, is NOT going to be open to fans), the Yankees play a real exhibition game at Bright House Field in Clearwater. Here is that lineup, with no DH for New York:

Gardner LF
Granderson CF
Teixeira 1B
Swisher RF
Cervelli C
Pena SS
Russo 3B
Nunez 2B
Burnett P

Pitching: A.J. Burnett RHP
Also scheduled to pitch: Phil Hughes, Jonathan Albaladejo, Amaury Sanit, Zack Segovia, Royce Ring

Rollins SS
Polanco 3B
Utley 2B
Howard 1B
Werth CF
Ibanez LF
Francisco RF
Ruiz C
Hamels P

Cole Hamels LHP
