TAMPA, Fla. -- The Yankees travel to Lakeland today to play the Detroit Tigers and drop in on their old buddy Joba Chamberlain, now a member of their middle relief crew. And guess who's starting for Detroit? None other than the reigning AL Cy Young winner, Max Scherzer.

Here's the lineup:

Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Eduardo Nunez 3B
Carlos Beltran RF
Brian McCann C
Zoilo Almonte LF
Russ Canzler 1B
Brendan Ryan SS
Dean Anna 2B
Gary Sanchez DH

Adam Warren RHP

Notes: Warren will be followed by Shawn Kelley, making his first appearance of the spring, Dellin Betances, and assorted others ... Girardi said Derek Jeter came out of his first spring game OK and is on track to play tomorrow against the Phillies at home ... Michael Pineda has yet to throw in a game, but will pitch a simulated game here on Sunday ... Jose Ramirez' MRIs on his back and oblique came back clean, but the right-hander is still "sore,'' according to Girardi, and will be down for a few more days.
