SARASOTA, Fla. -- Here is the lineup for tonight's game between the Yankees and Baltimore Orioles (7:05 p.m. start):

Lyle Overbay 1B
Brennan Boesch RF
Ben Francisco LF
Jayson Nix 2B
Thomas Neal DH
Ronnier Mustelier 3B
Bobby Wilson C

David Phelps RHP

Robinson Cano was a late scratch with what Joe Girardi described as a "stomach bug" ... Overbay's three-day audition to make the club as part of a first-base platoon with Juan Rivera continues, with him batting in Cano's customary three hole. If he doesn't make the team, the Yankees will release Overbay on Friday ... Phelps will be followed by a quartet of pitchers who will not be making the team: Juan Cedeno, Preston Claiborne, Brandon Pinder and Josh Spence.
