Yankees spring training game one: New York vs. Florida State University

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

This is it people – the start of spring training games

In game one, the Yankees will send out Vidal Nuno to face right-hander Mike Compton and the Florida State Seminoles. Reigning Heisman Award winner Jameis Winston, who is likely to ultimately choose football over baseball, is said to be playing as well.


Lineup

NEW YORK YANKEES FLORIDA STATE SEMINOLES
Brett Gardner CF Josh Delph DH
Francisco Cervelli C Justin Gonzalez SS
Kelly Johnson 3B DJ Stewart LF
Russ Canzler 1B Brett Knief RF
Zoilo Almonte LF John Nogowski 1B
Brendan Ryan SS Jose Brizuela 3B
Adonis Garcia RF John Sansone 2B
Yangervis Solarte 2B Ben DeLuzio CF
John Ryan Murphy DH Danny De La Calle C

Nuno will be followed in the game by Brian Gordon, Shane Greene, Bryan Mitchell, Francisco Rondon.

Seeing as how this is simply the first game of the year and it's against a college baseball team, only a few of the team's regulars will be playing in the game. It looks like we'll have to wait a little longer for the spring debuts of Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran, and Jacoby Ellsbury, among others.

Brett Gardner, fresh off signing his new extension, Kelly Johnson, Francisco Cervelli, and Brendan Ryan are the only Yankees in the lineup who are expected to be with the team on Opening Day. Adonis Garcia, Zoilo Almonte, and J.R. Murphy represent potential callups during the season. We'll also be getting our first look at potential Yankees Yangervis Solarte and Russ Canzler.

The Yankees' bench will consist of Gary Sanchez (C), Jose Gil (1B), Corban Joseph (2B), Dean Anna (SS), Jose Pirela(3B!), Antoan Richardson (LF), Mason Williams (CF), and Ramon Flores (RF) in the field. Peter O`Brien, Francisco Arcia, Austin Romine, and Zelous Wheeler should all get a turn as the designated hitter. The bullpen will include Gordon, Greene, Mitchell, Rondon, Chase Whitley, Fred Lewis, and Danny Burawa.

Unfortunately, today's game will not be televised, so you'll have to follow along with the box score or, dare I say, MLB Gameday. In play, run(s). Don't worry, you should be able to see everyone's faces soon enough.
