Spring Game 7: Yankees vs. Nationals

Alex Rodriguez is in the posted lineup at third base, marking his first appearance at the position since Sept. 10, 2013, as the Yankees host the Nationals for a 1:05 p.m. ET contest at George M. Steinbrenner Field. Adam Warren is starting for the Yankees and Doug Fister will go for the Nationals. Dellin Betances is scheduled to make his spring debut.

Early notes from clubhouse availability — CC Sabathia will throw a simulated game this morning on a back field, working to Rob Refsnyder and Greg Bird. His next outing could be in a game if all goes well. Joe Girardi said yesterday that he has no concern about Sabathia being ready for the Opening Day roster. By the way, Girardi said he is not ready to name an Opening Day starter.

Brendan Ryan (back) is still on the shelf. He said that there has been improvement, but he still doesn’t know when he is getting on the field. After missing most of last spring, Ryan said that he is starting to get concerned about being ready for the season.

You can follow the action on YES and WFAN.

Spring Game 6: Yankees at Astros

The Yankees have arrived here at Osceola County Stadium in Kissimmee, Fla., where they’ll face the Astros at 1:05 p.m. ET. The starting pitchers are Scott Baker for the Yankees and Dallas Keuchel for the Bucs.

Earlier this morning, Masahiro Tanaka threw a 29-pitch simulated game at George M. Steinbrenner Field. Pitching coach Larry Rothschild was encouraged, saying that Tanaka is exactly where he needs to be at this point. Tanaka’s next outing could come in a Grapefruit League game.

Here in Kissimmee, John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman are on the air for their first radio broadcast of the spring.
