Spring Game 11: Yankees vs. Braves

Hello from George M. Steinbrenner Field, where Masahiro Tanaka will make his spring debut this evening against the Atlanta Braves at 7:05 p.m. ET. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that he expects Tanaka to throw 30 to 35 pitches over his two innings of work.

Shelby Miller is on the mound for Atlanta, and the Yankees are sending out their probable Opening Day lineup for the second time this spring. It has been a hot and humid day here in Tampa — CC Sabathia was drenched with sweat after his two-inning simulated game — but things are cooling off just in time for first pitch.

The game will be televised on YES.
