Spring Training Game #31: Yankees at Marlins Part II

The Yankees take on the Miami Marlins again tonight as they play the second of two exhibition games to open up Marlins Park. The game will air at 7:10 on both MLB Network and MLB.tv.

Before giving the starting lineups, here's a bit of news that's probably not a surprise: according to Joe Girardi, the two spots still in question on the 25-man roster are those of middle reliever (Clay Rapada or George Kontos) and long reliever (David Phelps, Adam Warren, or D.J. Mitchell). I'd be stunned if they pick Kontos since Girardi likes second lefties, and I think it's a toss-up between Phelps & Mitchell for the other spot since Warren hasn't pitched well. My hunch is Mitchell will be picked, with Phelps next in line if a starter goes down since I think they like Phelps as a starter a little more.
