New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles: Luis Cessa vs. David Hess

It’s time for Cessa’s rotation audition.

MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Pittsburgh Pirates Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

We’re in for a rare spring training treat this weekend: back-to-back night games! After taking on the Tigers last night at home, the Yankees are in Sarasota tonight to face the Orioles. Jonathan Loaisiga made his first start since the Luis Severino injury on Wednesday, and he had some highs (five strikeouts) and lows (four earned runs). Now it’s time for Luis Cessa’s audition to join the rotation. The right-hander has pitched well through his first five innings of the spring. He will take the mound opposite of David Hess.

The Yankees are trotting out quite the lineup. That bottom half is something:

Baltimore’s lineup seems a bit light on big-leaguers as well, but they had a split-squad game against the Rays earlier today.

Tonight’s game starts at 6:05 ET. If you happen to get MASN, you should be able to watch it on TV. Otherwise, it will be streaming on, or you can listen via WFAN.
