Brett Gardner, Derek Jeter, and Jacoby Ellsbury make up the top of the order. Brian McCann and Yangervis Solarte bat four and five, while Alfonso Soriano returns to the lineup as the designated hitter. Ichiro Suzuki is in right field, while Brian Roberts is at second base, and Kelly Johnson tries once again to be a first baseman.
In case you were wonder, Robinson Cano will indeed be in Seattle's lineup despite missing the last few games with a hand injury.
On the Yankees' side of things, Shawn Kelley will throw a simulated game on Wednesday and hopes to get into a rehab game on Friday. If all goes according to plan, he could rejoin the team sometime during the series in Kansas City or Seattle.
Carlos Beltran played in his first extended spring training game today, going 0-for-3, but more importantly, he said "the elbow felt great." The plan is to get him into two more games before trying to get him back for the upcoming west coast road trip.
In case you forgot about Francisco Cervelli, he was also in that extended spring training game where he caught three innings behind the plate and and went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk.
For those that haven't heard, Yankees outfield prospect Ramon Flores suffered a nasty ankle injury while running to first base during last night's RailRiders game. He was unable to put any weight on the leg and will be placed on the 30-day disabled list, where he will hopefully make a speedy recovery.
