The Yankees held on last night to take one from the Brave and move their spring record to 6-1, if you care about such things. Today they take on the Orioles at home at George M. Steinbrenner Field in a rematch from Monday.
Adam Warren will get a chance to start, while the Yankees will go up against right-hander Tyler Wilson. Warren remains on the outskirts of the competition for a rotation spot but will likely end up back in the bullpen to serve as the team’s longman.

Tonight’s starting lineup will be far more interesting than last night’s edition by many, many factors. Greg Bird is back in the lineup at first base. We’re also going to get some another chance to watch Clint Frazier and Gleyber Torres work their magic. We’ll also see prospects like Kyle Higashioka, Jorge Mateo, Miguel Andujar, Tyler Wade, and Billy McKinney come in off the bench.
The pitching side won’t be as interesting, with Dietrich Enns and Giovanny Gallegos being the only prospects of note getting a chance this evening. We’ll also get our first look at Aroldis Chapman this spring.
The game will be on YES and MLB Network starting at 6:35 PM ET. You can also watch on MLB.tv.
