The Yankees take on division rivals the Baltimore Orioles for the first time this spring. Despite it being a travel day, the team has brought along an impressive lineup of players. If anyone cares about spring training records (you probably shouldn’t), the Yankees are in a bit of a slide, having lost four of the last seven games and settling for a tie yesterday. Hopefully the team can treat the Orioles like they will in the regular season and get a win today.
Making the trip today is Tyler Wade, Aaron Judge, Greg Bird, Brandon Drury, Austin Romine, and Ronald Torreyes, who could all be on the Opening Day roster. Billy McKinney will get the start as he eyes a spot on the roster while Jacoby Ellsbury recovers from injury. Chance Adams will get the start today as he tries to impress and remain relevant after a pretty nondescript spring so far.

The bench is filled with several guys from minor league camp, who get an opportunity to face big league talent. Some names to look out for include Rashad Crawford, Trey Amburgey, Chris Gittens, Cody Carroll, Cale Coshow, and J.P. Feyereisen.
