PREGAME NOTES:

  • Care to guess who currently ranks #2 in the AL in hitting? It's none other than Hideki Matsui (.342), trailing only Victor Martinez (.347) of the Tribe.
  • Pete Abe reports that A-Rod feels no pain after working out today doing sprints and taking grounders before hitting the cage. A-Rod, along with Hughes and Posada, is expected to head to Tampa tomorrow and will likely see some extended Spring Training games on Monday and Tuesday. If all goes as planned and there are no setbacks, he's expected to be activated next Wednesday.
  • In a rather impressive feat, Chien-Ming Wang has made 34 starts during his career following a Yankee loss and the team is 27-7 in those games, including the past 11 in a row. Coming into tonight, opponents are 0 for their last 15 against Wang w/ RISP.
  • Cliff Lee is a lifetime 2-3, 6.82 ERA in 6 starts against the Yanks, including 1-2, 8.73 ERA in 3 starts at Yankee Stadium.
  • Wang is a lifetime 3-1, 2.73 ERA in 4 starts against the Tribe, including an outstanding 1-0 victory over Sabathia on April 27.
