CC Sabathia makes his first start of the spring today against the Tigers at Joker Marchant -- no relation to ESPNNY'S Andrew Marchand -- Stadium in Lakeland and will go two innings, followed by Pedro Feliciano, Manny Banuelos, Mark Prior, RHP Daniel Turpen and LHP Robert Fish. Justin Verlander will start for the Tigers.

The Yankees brought their starting infield, and today, Melky returns to centerfield. No, not that Melky. Melky Mesa, flanked by Justin Maxwell in left and Andruw Jones, making his first start of the spring, in right. Russell Martin, still not ready to catch, gets his first start at DH. No TV or radio today, but you can follow my twitter feed @wallacematthews for in-game updates.
