Spring Training Game Eight: Yankees vs. Orioles

USA TODAY Sports

In a rare evening spring training game, two AL East division rivals square off on the YES Network with Wei-Yin Chen starting against David Phelps.

In what might end up being the most-watched game of spring training simply due to its convenient start time, the Yankees take on the Orioles in an evening match-up at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. The starting pitchers will be David Phelps, who fanned four in two innings of one-run ball during his last start against the Pirates on Thursday, and Wei-Yin Chen, who will be making his first start of spring training for the O's following a fine sophomore campaign in 2013.

Tonight's game will be on YES Network and MLB.tv at 7:05. For those unable to access either but have Gameday Audio, there will be a WBAL feed on MLB.tv as well (the Orioles' radio station). Here's hoping you can catch it!



Ryan got drilled on the left hand by a line drive during batting practice, but he should reportedly be okay to play. Pray to Mo that the ghost of 2013 has not returned.

The regular lineup will likely be replaced by Gary Sanchez (C), Francisco Arcia (1B), Scott Sizemore (2B, making his first appearance of camp), Dean Anna (SS), Zelous Wheeler (3B), Ramon Flores (LF), Mason Williams (CF), Antoan Richardson (RF), and regular catcher Brian McCann (DH). Jose Gil, Pete O'Brien, John Ryan Murphy, Corban Joseph, Jose Pirela, Adonis Garcia, and Addison Maruszak will also be available off the bench if needed.

The lineup card also indicates that Matt Thornton, Brian Gordon, Cesar Cabral, Chris Leroux, Chase Whitley, and Preston Claiborne will likely make relief appearances. It will be new LOOGY Thornton's first bullpen outing as a Yankee. Bruce Billings, Graham Stonecutter Stoneburner, Jeremy Bleich, and switch-pitcher Pat Venditte will also be on hand, so there's an outside chance that they could make appearances as well.

Enjoy the game!
