Grapefruit League Game 28-Yankees at Blue Jays

Here are some quick notes from Joe Girardis session with the press this morning and then I have the lineup for today. Curtis Granderson will be the CF, they would of been fine with either Granderson or Gardner but the Yankees view Granderson as a everyday player. Gardner still has to earn his playing time, he will play CF the days Granderson does not. Francisco Cervelli has a Grade 1 strain of the hamstring and won't play in anymore exhibition games. Girardi thinks he won't go on the DL and will start the season with the team. Just in case they wanted to get Mike Rivera in these last few games. Girardi didn't committ to a full time platoon with Marcus Thames but it looks like he will get a lot of playing time against lefties. Girardi said he has swung the bat well against lefties and has played well enough in the field. His career numbers against lefties are very good. A.J. Burnett, Royce Ring, Chan Ho Park, Joba Chamberlain,Dave Robertson, Pat Venditte, Craig Heyer and Lance Pendleton are pitchers available today. Yankees Lineup: Granderson(CF) Johnson(DH) Teixeira(1B) Posada(C) Cano(2B) Swisher(RF) Thames(LF) Pena(SS) Laird(3B)
