Spring Training Game 25 Lineup: 3/20/13

The Yankees will take on AL East foe Boston today from Tampa, Fla., which will be the last time the two teams see each other until Opening Day on April 1, when the games really count.

Shortstop Derek Jeter will sit out again, after being diagnosed with mild inflammation in his surgically repaired left ankle. While Jeter isn’t too concerned about the expected soreness, manager Joe Girardi left the door open for a possible DH role on Opening Day, while GM Brian Cashman wouldn’t rule out a DL stint. Jeter was given a cortisone shot to ease the soreness. With the WBC now over, the Yankees should have WBC MVP Robinson Cano back in camp tomorrow. Here is the lineup:

New York Yankees (9-15)

Brett Gardner LF
Eduardo Nunez SS
Kevin Youkilis 3B
Juan Rivera 1B
Ben Francisco RF
Jayson Nix 2B
Chris Stewart C
Thomas Neal DH
Melky Mesa CF

LHP Vidal Nuno

Game Time: 1:05 pm

Ever since my parents bought me a Paul O'Neill shirt at my first Yankees game back in 1994 I've been a diehard fan. I graduated from Springfield College in Springfield, Mass., in 2011 with a degree in Communications/Sports Journalism, so writing about the Yankees has always been a passion of mine.
