Pregame Notes

Nick Swisher is not in the starting lineup. He is still resting a sore calf.

 If you haven’t already, Individual tickets for the Yankees are on sale now to the general public. Go to Yankees.com or call Ticketmaster for tickets.

 The Yankees released Preston Mattingly (Don Mattingly’s son) along with Reegie Corona & Grant Duff.

— The Yankees home opener pitcher will most likely be Hiroki Kuroda.

— Girardi wouldn’t commit to an exact date of Andy Pettitte pitching in a game, but he would like to set the game vs. the Mets at GMS Field as a target date.

Enjoy the game everyone!  

UPDATE 7:05pm: Curtis Granderson has been scratched from the lineup due to elbow stiffness. Mark Teixeira will bat 2nd, Brett Gardner moves up and bats 8th while Justin Maxwell will bat 9th.

7:07pm: CC Sabathia starts the game giving up a stand-up triple to Kelly Johnson.

7:17pm: Blue Jays pull to a 1-0 lead on a Kelly Johnson triple and RBI groundout by Yunel Escobar.

8:23pm: Yankees trail 3-0 after 4 innings. Yankees have had scoring opportunities but have failed to capitalize.

9:15pm: Yankees get their first run of the ball game on a Brett Gardner RBI. Yankees now trail 3-1.
