Spring Training: 3/17/12 Lineup
Lineup vs. Astros
Hiroki Kuroda, RHP
— First off, Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all (hence why I am writing the pre-game notes in green today).
— Eduardo Nunez is back in the lineup today after not playing since March 5. Nunez will wear a special glove that will protect the bruised portion of his hand. He went through batting practice with no problems today.
— Austin Romine is playing catch today. It’s his first baseball activity since being shut down earlier in camp.
— For those of you anticipating Mariano Rivera yesterday and him never coming into the game, it wasn’t his fault. His name was accidentally added to the list of pitchers for the game. But Mo will come in the game today.
— George Kontos who was out with a sore oblique is scheduled to pitch tomorrow.
Here is the list of pitchers that are scheduled to pitch today: Kuroda, Rivera, Wade, Logan, Betances, Cedeno, O’Connor, Kontos, Venditte
Here are the players that will make the trip tomorrow to Sarasota:
HITTERS: Brett Gardner, Chris Dickerson, Colin Curtis, Cole Garner, Raul Ibanez, Justin Maxwell, Dewayne Wise, Robinson Cano, Doug Bernier, Bill Hall, Brandon Laird, Eduardo Nunez, Mark Teixeira, Jorge Vasquez, Russell Martin, Gustavo Molina, Jose Gil
The game is at 1:05pm on YES Network! Enjoy the game!
