Lineup

Ichiro Suzuki - CF Grady Sizemore - CF
Brendan Ryan Dean Anna - SS Shane Victorino - RF
Eduardo Nunez - 3B Dustin Pedroia - 2B
Mark Teixeira - 1B David Ortiz - DH
Francisco Cervelli - C Mike Napoli - 1B
Scott Sizemore - 2B Daniel Nava - LF
Yangervis Solarte - LF Xander Bogaerts - SS
Zoilo Almonte - RF David Ross - C

The game will be available on YES, ESPN, and MLB.tv. David Phelps gets the starting nod against Clay Buchholz. Here are the reserves coming in once the Yankees starters (who are already kind of a B-team) depart:

Austin Romine (C), Jose Gil (1B), Jose Pirela (2B), Carmen Angelini (SS), Ben Gamel (LF), Antoan Richardson (CF), Adonis Garcia (RF), John Ryan Murphy (DH).

Tyson Blaser (whose first name is known only by Tanya and Mrs. Blaser) and Ali Castillo will also be available off the bench. Outside-shot bullpen candidates Matt Daley, Chris Leroux, Yoshinori Tateyama, and Fred Lewis will likely relieve Phelps out of the 'pen. Branden Pinder, James Pazos, Manny Barreda, and Caleb Cotham have also made the trip to Ft. Myers in case they are needed.

Update

Brendan Ryan was a late scratch due to back spasms. Dean Anna will start in his place.
