The team defeated the Florida State Seminoles in their first spring training game yesterday and today they'll get a crack at the Pittsburgh Pirates and Francisco Lirano in their first true Grapefruit League matchup. Ivan Nova will start the game for the Yankees. It will be your first chance to check out a trio of new Yankees, as Brian McCann, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Carlos Beltran are all expected to make the trip. Joe Girardi expects them to play four or five innings each.
