It's the first game of a doubleheader, as Masahiro Tanaka/Michael Pineda takes the mound.
The Yankees will have a revamped bench; #4 prospect John Ryan (don't call me JR!) Murphy on his way to Yankee Stadium, along with infielder Scott Sizemore.
Cubs starter Jason Hammel came to the Cubs from Baltimore on a one year deal, but the Yankees have seen him before. He was at his best against the Yankees last season, winning two out of three games (no decision in the third), allowing only 5 ER in 17.2 IP, despite giving up 20 hits and 5 walks.
