Here's the lineup for todays game against the Blue Jays in Dunedin, first pitch at 1:05 p.m.

Brett Gardner CF
Francisco Cervelli C
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Raul Ibanez RF
Bill Hall LF
Justin Maxwell DH
Jayson Nix 2B
Ramiro Pena SS

Ivan Nova RHP

NOTES: Another screwy lineup today, with all three outfielders technically playing out of position and Francisco Cervelli batting second. Raul Ibanez gets a start in RF, where he might see some action this season, and Bill Hall gets a start in left, where he is guaranteed to see no action this season. In his second outing of the spring, Ivan Nova will go at least three innings. David Robertson had been scheduled to pitch today but the freak injury he suffered to his rght foot Wednesday night obviously scratched him from the roster.
