Joe Girardi still doesn't know who his No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 starters are going to be when the Yankees break camp next week.

But he does know two things. CC Sabathia will start the season opener, at Tampa Bay on Friday, April 6. And Hiroki Kuroda will start the next game, on Saturday, April 7.

Sabathia was a given. But Girardi confirmed today that Kuroda will start the second game of the season, which would also line him up to start the Yankees' home opener on Friday, April 13.
