Spring Training Game 1 Lineup: 2/23/13

Baseball is back! The Yankees are in Lake Buena Vista to take on the Braves in their spring debut today at 1:05. Francisco Cervelli gets the first crack behind the plate in what should be a very tight catcher battle throughout the spring. Juan Rivera is back in Pinstripes starting at DH and Matt Diaz, another contender for the right handed bat off the bench, starts in left. David Phelps takes the ball for the Yankees.
