Notes: Joe Girardi was originally going to give Brett Gardner the night off, but changed his mind, opting to leave Andruw Jones behind to play in a minor-league game todayand use him later in the week against left-handed starters. Mark Teixeira gets the night off and Derek Jeter, once again in the two-hole, gets his first DH day of the spring. Gardner gets his second start of the spring in CF, and Jorge Posada makes his second start at 1b.
