Spring Training Game Eleven: Yankees vs. Tigers

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Hiroki Kuroda will make the start tonight against the Detroit Tigers. However, the big news is that Michael Pineda will be making his return to the mound for the first time this spring. He is the final contestant for the fifth starter spot, and out of Vidal Nuno, Adam Warren, and David Phelps, some might say he's the favorite. Of course it would also happen that this game will not be televised, so you'll have to listen along and imagine.


Lineup

NEW YORK YANKEES DETROIT TIGERS
Jacoby Ellsbury CF Rajai Davis LF

The Yankees will have Francisco Cervelli (C), Jose Gil (1B), Jose Pirela (2B), Dean Anna (SS), Zelous Wheeler (3B), Zoilo Almonte (LF), Antoan Richardson (CF), Adonis Garcia (RF) first off the bench. Francisco Arcia, Peter O`Brien, Gary Sanchez, Corban Joseph, Yangervis Solarte, Ramon Flores, and Mason Williams will also be available. Tonight's bullpen will include David Robertson, Matt Thornton, Shawn Kelley, Preston Claiborne, Jim Miller, Robert Coello, and Yoshinori Tateyama.

Word is that Joba Chamberlain will be pitching against his former team tonight, too. That should be fun.
