It’s Tanaka time!

After a DL stint of about a month, Masahiro Tanaka returns to a major league mound tonight against the Orioles. His start to the season may not have been the best of his career, but it’ll be nice to have him back. It will certainly be better than watching Luis Cessa pitch, last night’s game aside.

The rest of the Yankees’ lineup sees some more shuffling around. Aaron Hicks gets a chance in the three spot, while Neil Walker retains his place in the starting lineup after getting two hits in the second game yesterday. Other than that, it’s a mostly regular lineup.

Andrew Cashner gets the start for the Orioles. Cashner got off to a poor start this season, but has been a bit better of late.

The game will air on YES and MLB Network, and first pitch will be at 7:05 eastern. Go Yankees, go baseball.
