Yesterday may have been a tough loss for the Yankees, but at least we watched some good baseball. Today, Hiroki Kuroda takes the mound for his first time as a Yankee, against Derek Jeter‘s favorite opposing pitcher, David Price. The new Yankee pitcher gave the Dodger’s a 3.07 ERA last year, with a 7.2 K/9 and 2.2 BB/9. This Spring, Kuroda was arguably the most impressive starter in camp, posting a 2.92 ERA, a 6.2 K/9, and a 1.5 BB/9.
Joe Girardi has made a few moves with today’s lineup against the left hander Price. Curtis Granderson and Nick Swisher have been flipped, Granderson will bat 6th (the guy who hit lefties .272/.347/.597 in 2011 will bat 6th!?) and Swisher will bat 2nd (hit lefties at .327/.442/.516 in 2011). Eduardo Nunez will get the start at short stop, with Derek Jeter playing as the DH today. Andruw Jones gets a start in left field with the platoon advantage, and Brett Gardner will get his first start on the bench. Here is today’s lineup.
|Derek Jeter DH||Desmond Jennings CF|
|Nick Swisher RF||Carlos Pena 1B|
|Robinson Cano 2B||Evan Longoria 3B|
|Alex Rodriguez 3B||Matt Joyce LF|
|Mark Teixeira 1B||Ben Zobrist RF|
|Curtis Granderson CF||Luke Scott DH|
|Andruw Jones LF||Jeff Keppinger 2B|
|Russell Martin C||Jose Lobaton C|
|Eduardo Nunez SS||Reid Brignac SS|
