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