Jeter, Cabrera, Pineda & Joba at Big Stein

By Andrew Marchand

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Nets play the Celtics on YES so there is no TV tonight for Yankees-Tigers, which is a shame because Derek Jeter and Miguel Cabrera are in their respective lineups.

On the mound, Joba Chamberlain is making the trip for the Tigers, while Michael Pineda will take the hill for the first time this spring. Joe Girardi's hope is that Pineda can throw three innings.

Here are the lineups on a cool (for Tampa) night at Steinbrenner Field:

New York Yankees

Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
Jeter, SS
Carlos Beltran, DH
Brian McCann, C
Alfonso Soriano, RF
Brian Roberts, 2B
Ichiro Suzuki, LF
Eduardo Nunez, 3B
Russ Canzler, 1B

Hiroki Kuroda, P

Detroit Tigers

Rajai Davis, LF
Torii Hunter, RF
Cabrera, 1B
Victor Martinez, DH
Alex Avila, C
Austin Jackson, CF
Stephen Lombardozzi, 2B
Nick Castellanos, 3B
Danny Worth, SS

Anibal Sanchez, P

MANBAN DEBUT: In Kissimee on Saturday, Manuel Banuelos will pitch his first game since ...

"May 20, 2012," Banuelos said, the date etched in his mind.

Banuelos, who turns 23 on March 13, will pitch one inning against the Houston Astros.

Banuelos, coming back from Tommy John elbow surgery, said he is a little nervous about the outing, but in a good way. He is especially excited to find out how hard he is throwing. He has not had a radar gun on his fastball yet. He said it feels like the 90s, but he wants to know for sure.
