Spring Training Game Four: Yankees vs. Tigers

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees opened up Grapefruit League play with two losses to the Pirates in both Bradenton and Tampa. Today, the team will travel to Lakeland, Florida, to take on the Tigers in a split squad matchup. It means very little for the Yankees, who don't have another game for the other half of their squad to attend today. A trio of newbies – Jacoby Ellsbury, Carlos Beltran, and Brian McCann – are expected to make the trip. Top prospect Gary Sanchez is slated to DH and bat ninth. Adam Warren gets the start for New York opposite Max Scherzer for Detroit.
