4/1 – Yankees at Blue Jays

Happy April Fool’s Day! Maybe that explains why the Yankees have decided to play a trick on the Blue Jays this afternoon, bringing switch-pitcher Pat Venditte along for the ride to Dunedin.

While we wait to get a crack at Curtis Granderson and Brett Gardner for reaction to this morning’s official outfield announcement, here are the lineups:


Granderson CF
Johnson DH
Teixeira 1B
Posada C
Cano 2B
Swisher RF
Thames LF
Pena SS
Laird 3B

Pitching: A.J. Burnett RHP
Also available: Royce Ring, Joba Chamberlain, Chan Ho Park, Dave Robertson, Lance Pendleton, Craig Heyer, Pat Venditte

Bautista RF
Hill 2B
Lind DH
Wells CF
Overbay 1B
Encarnacion 3B
Buck C
Snider LF
McDonald SS

Pitching: Brian Tallet RHP
