Earlier this afternoon, Mark Teixeira announced that he will be retiring at the end of the season. The Yankees will kick off his retirement tour against the Cleveland Indians, complete with Andrew Miller. Let's hope he doesn't have to pitch against the Yankees. Speaking of pitching, Michael Pineda will square off against Josh Tomlin. Catching Pineda will be Gary Sanchez, making his major league debut behind the plate.
First pitch is at 7:05 PM and the game can be seen on YES.
