Spring training 2017: Yankees vs. Pirates game thread

The Yankees take on the Pirates again.

MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Toronto Blue Jays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

After taking on the Pirates yesterday in Tampa, the Yankees travel to Bradenton to take them on again. This time, Bryan Mitchell gets another start as he tries to make the team’s rotation with a strong showing in spring training.

With the game being a road trip and the majority of regulars playing yesterday, the lineup is likely to be heavily prospect-laden. That is good news for people looking to catch a glimpse of some of the younger players before the first round of cuts are made.

The Yankees have had a lot of success this spring, particularly offensively. They have been the team to beat in Grapefruit League play so far. Hopefully that success is a sign of things to come and not just the product of small sample size in virtually meaningless games.

The game will be on at 1:05 pm ET.
