Radio: None, TV: None

After meandering over across the water from Tampa, we’re here in Dunedin as the Yankees get set for their sixth exhibition game. This will mark Raul Ibanez’s outfield debut for the Yankees, so there’s something to watch today along with Ivan Nova’s second spring outing. Meanwhile, David Robertson talked with a few reporters back at Steinbrenner Field and said he’s not too concerned about his right foot sprain, hoping it will just take a week to heal.

Here are today’s lineups:

Brett Gardner CF
Francisco Cervelli C
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Raul Ibanez RF
Bill Hall LF
Justin Maxwell DH
Jayson Nix 2B
Ramiro Pena SS

Pitching: Ivan Nova RHP
Also scheduled to pitch: David Robertson RHP, Mike O’Connor LHP, Dellin Betances RHP, David Phelps RHP, Cesar Cabral LHP, Dan Burawa RHP.

BLUE JAYS (3-2-1)
Yunel Escobar DH
Kelly Johnson 2B
Jose Bautista RF
Adam Lind 1B
Brett Lawrie 3B
Colby Rasmus CF
J.P. Arencibia C
Travis Snider LF
Luis Valbuena SS

Pitching: Brett Cecil LHP
Also scheduled to pitch: Chad Beck RHP, Drew Carpenter RHP, Nelson Figueroa RHP, Jason Frasor RHP, Jerry Gil RHP, Jim Hoey RHP, Scott Richmond RHP.

At the game today against the Jays. Left in the 7th inning because the sun was very hot plus the Yankees stunk the joint out. No spark, no life, no offence, lousy pitching. We keep saying it’s spring training but yeh it’s spring training for the Ray and the Jays and the Pirates too. We were just flat. Not too proud to wear the Yankees cap today. I hope this isn’t going to be a trend leading into the regular season. Poor outing for Nova. Tex did nothing at the plate only get out. Other than Tex and ARod and Gardner we had our B team on the field against the Jay’s A team which doesn’t help. Not much to cheer for or feel good about. After first two games against the Phillies we’ve lost 5 strait. Poor performance.
