It’s been a rain-soaked couple days for the Yankees at spring training, but hopefully the skies will clear up as they host the Pirates during today’s spring matinee. The Yankees were rained out Tuesday versus the Phillies, and their game against the Tigers yesterday was shorted by rain, but the forecast this afternoon calls for sunny and a high of 79.
J.A. Happ will get his spring rolling with his first start. On the other side, Pittsburgh sends out Steven Brault, a 26-year-old left-hander with just 15 career major-league appearances to his name.
Here’s a look at the lineups:

No Aaron Hicks, Gary Sanchez, or Gleyber Torres, but otherwise, a pretty solid lineup for this afternoon.
The game begins at 1:05 EST, but unfortunately, it’s another game that will not be televised. In any event, follow along and chat about the game here!
