After yesterday's spring opener was salvaged thanks to a ninth-inning, three-run home run from Aaron Judge, the Yankees return home to take on the Phillies at George Steinbrenner Field. The game is scheduled to begin at 1:05 PM and will be broadcasted on the YES Network and will be available on MLB.tv for the first home broadcast of the season. If you're like me and you live in New York, have MLB.tv, but don't have cable, you'll still be able to watch the game because blackout restrictions have been suspended for the entirety of spring training. Aww gee thanks, local networks.

Today we will get our first look at Nathan Eovaldi, today's starter, and Andrew Miller, who is scheduled to be the first man out of the bullpen today. Since it is a home game, most of the team's projected starters, including Gregorius, A-Rod, McCann, Teixeira, Headley, and Drew will be in the starting lineup.

Prepare to get your first at Gary Sanchez's defense as he will be the first backup catcher off the bench. Greg Bird and Aaron Judge will be appearing in today's game and hopefully we will get to see more of Jose Pirela and Rob Refsnyder, who both looked shaky out in the field.
