“Today’s lineup against the Astros:

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Johnson DH
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Jorge Posada C
Curtis Granderson LF
Nick Swisher RF
Brett Gardner CF”

Manager Joe Girardi has hinted that this lineup will look similar to his Opening Day lineup. Interestingly enough, the Yankees have promoted Granderson to be their Center Fielder all off-season, but Gardner gets the start tonight. The first legitimate lineup will play on Sunday, April 4th.

AJ Burnett will get the start on the hill.
